I Haven’t Seen You All Week!


August 10, 2011

For my first actual real life blogging post this week, I’ve got all sorts of good little lovelies to share with you…afterall, it’s Wednesday and I have to get through the “hump day” heavies.
I have seen a good amount of blogging going on recently about home organization notebooks…is anyone else wanting to jump on the bandwagon to make one of these books to keep you “in the know” with your personal self and on top of all your lists? I am totally making one and will let you know how my ideas turn out.

I am loving that someone at work just happened to bring in cake and cupcakes from a birthday party they had leftover…thank you much, that slice of funfetti cake was my “morning snack”.

I FINALLY finished my gallery wall last night. Big pat on the back! It looks fabulous and I promise to show the end product ASAP.

Jeff is taking off from work most of this week and I have him with an itemized “honey-do” list to knock out some little tasks here and there…ahhh this is the life!
I am having a craving for cucumbers in vinegar…does anyone else love this summertime treat? Saw this post via Eat at Home and thinking this will be on the menu tonight for dinner.
Next week, I am hosting bunco at my house and cannot wait…being the entertaining nerd that I am, the menu is planned and I know us girls are going to have a GREAT time!
Can this weekend get here soon enough?? So many exciting things going on:
  • The ever famous Wilson County Fair is starting–yes, I love fair food in all its fried greasyness…and then will make sure I hit up the gym the very next morning
  • The weather is supposed to be in the mid-80s, which means I may just need a light coat because that sounds almost chilly 😉
  • Jeff is heading to the lake for a “sales meeting” with guys from work…otherwise known as leave your wives and kids for wakeboarding, drinking, eating, and acting inapprpriately for whole 2 days–haha
  • So, what’s a girl to do when the boy goes away and the friends are busy? Spending the weekend with Mom and Dad of course! Cannot wait for some downtime, and I’m taking Mom to see The Sound of Music at the newly restored historic downtown Franklin Theater…so fun!!

    1. I LOVE cucumbers and vinegar. They remind me of my childhood, because my grandmother ALWAYS had them in the fridge!

    2. Can't wait to see pictures of your gallery wall. I have been contemplating designing one for my living room because of all the wall space I need to fill. This girl needs some inspiration!

    3. And who doesn't love funfetti cake? My boss brought in homemade mini muffins this morning that his wife made. It was a super nice treat to have cinnamon and lemon-poppy seed muffins after a good morning workout!

  2. Morgan says:

    Cucumber salads are the best! You're making me hungry! And did you say the fair? Love me some carnie food!

  3. Ashley says:
