I know it has been a minute since I posted. A lot has been going on here and I am SO GRATEFUL I have a week off from work next week. It is long overdue and well deserved. There is a lot of tension and hostility here and I am so glad I can remove myself from that for a week.
Since our last visit,
I have planned a craft brunch with some of my wonderful girlfriends in honor of football season starting back up (GO DAWGS!). We have two crafts we are going to create and that is all I can say right now. I have NO idea how my wood cutting skills are going to turn out, so I dont want to show you inspiration and it falls completely flat. BUT you can check out what I have on my Pinterest page. Ive pinned a few of the things we are making.
Here is what we made last year:
Last week I spent the week in Louisville for work to help with a show they had a deadline for. It was SO NICE to work in an office where people communicated, there was no yelling or paper throwing, and they had air conditioning!!! Plus it was great to work with friends.
The next few weeks are going to be very busy ones….and very expensive ones:
I have my to do list ready for my vacation which includes a ton of house maintenance projects and purging my closet. There is a lot of cleaning and painting going on next week. Plus, I have to make a wedding shower gift…and one for me because I love it so much! ha
Then we have the lovely Labor Day weekend and I ship out to Las Vegas for a show. It will be a total bachel0r pad at my house that week.
Once I am back from Vegas, we have a wedding to attend….in St. Thomas. I was not going to go at first because it was just too expensive and we were only given two months to save for the trip, but I was guilted into going by the groom last week. You think the gift I am going to make is suitable enough? Or do I also need to buy a gift from their registry? I would assume a wedding this expensive for guests, the attendance is gift enough…..
We started talking about taking a day trip up to North Georgia in October during the apple festival since apples are a big deal up there. We wanted to make a weekend out of it, but of course we were late coming up with the idea and there is no where to stay. We were going to do the vineyards and apple festival, but now since we are going to be driving back the same day, we can only do the apple festival. I think it will be a lot of fun.
I bought new running shoes……..
Im making a running plan. Nice and easy and it will end with a half marathon next year. I had hoped to run a marathon this year, but it ended up really difficult because my damn shoes screwed up my legs and I had to take a step back. Plus, for distances like that, I do not have a running buddy and I don’t want to spend money on a once a week running group. Ive trained for a 1/2 alone before, so as lonely as it will be, I know I can do that.
