The Week in Review and Miscellaneous Thoughts

My brain is all over the place.  Here's just some highlights:

Misplaced my camera, which gave me a small heart attack.  Turns out I had just relocated to a "better" spot in my bedroom.  Clearly NOT a better spot.

Got a new car this week.  I'm super excited about it, but it's just like my last car.  2008 Red Jetta...replaced by a 2010 Red Jetta.  Is that lame?  Does it indicate a complete lack of imagination?  Or does it show that I know what I like and I like what I know?  Hmmm, makes you think doesn't it.

Brilliant episode of 30 Rock last night.  They merged with one of my other favorite shows when Tracy got into a NY cab and it was "Cash Cab".  So freakin' clever (and Ben is so adorable).

I' ve been hanging out with my good friends "Joann" and "Michael's" this week.  Very disappointed in myself.  I promised no more visits for awhile.  But,  it has been about 3 weeks, does that equal "awhile".  Had a 20% off entire purchase coupon (including sale items).  I couldn't waste a perfectly good coupon.

I need to get a new pair of jeans that fit my ever expanding waistline.  Muffin top is killing me.

Actually found a practical use for Facebook this week.  Long story, but basically found a friend that I went to school with from K-12 (and then we even went to the same college for a couple years). 

It's time to de-flower my porch and deck.  Everything has got to go.  So sad to see my home grown tomatoes go away, but I probably have enough fresh basil for one more batch of pesto.

Am I the only person in the world that hates creepy Halloween decorations.

How is it that I only find my grammer and spelling mistakes on my posts after I've published them.  Then I edit and republish again, only to find another mistake.  Keeping in mind I've already proofed it two or three times in draft mode.  

And finally...this time next week, I'll be in Chicago with all my girls.  So excited.

Happy Friday!


  1. If organizing is causing you small heart attacks then you'd best stop organizing! : )

    How fun to reconnect with an old friend!

    enjoy Chicago

    love your new fall background!

  2. Haha, Joann and Michaels. I love those places too! It's hard not to visit!

    I'd be freaking out if I lost my camera too! Glad you found it.

  3. Nice post! I love these type of posts!

  4. sounds like you've been doing lots. I hope you have a great time with the girls!

    I hear ya on the muffin top. If maternity pants were cool for non-pregnant people to wear, we'd be in good shape.

  5. I actually laughed out loud. Thanks because I really need it.
    Bagel bottoms lead to muffin tops, I say.
    Have a fun visit!

  6. Love this! And don't feel bad about Joann's...just always use a coupon! I'm jealous you're going to Chicago! i LOVE that city!

  7. Totally off subject, but how did you embed your polyvore links? I can't figure out how to do it so it looks like yours?

  8. Ok, as soon as I posted that question, I figured it out! Ha! I'm loving Polyvore. tons of fun!

  9. Kel..Polyvore is like grown-up paper dolls. Did they even still have paper dolls when you guys were little. I had quite a collection. Mom always bought me some when I got sick and since I got sick pretty often, I built up quite a collection.

  10. I don't do creepy Halloween decorations, EVER so I am with you and hooray on the new car - hey if you liked the other one, hopefully you are loving this one even better! I would have a heart attack if I was not finding my camera either!
