Random of Sorts

Just some random thoughts:

1. Today I had a very special lunch date with my bloggy friend Lindsey who was in my town for a work event.

This was our third time to get together and each time we hang out, we have so much fun. She is so fun and just so cute! I think we could always talk for waaaay longer then time allows. I am glad to not only call her my blog friend, but also a real life friend!


We rode to lunch in my car where she got to see my broken key in full action. It totally made me feel ghetto fabulous. Maybe one day I will have a normal key again.

2. Last week Luke and I picked up our other end table and I found some cute lamps on sale at Kirkland's (seriously love that place). It's amazing how much those two tables add to our living room. It brings a sense of a 'home' feeling to our apartment.

This is a bad picture but its the only one I have and I figured I couldn't talk about the tables without pic.

Next item I need to buy is a painting to go above the couch. I thought we would only be in our apartment for 6 months, but now, since I figured out we are going to be here for a good forever I decided I should go ahead and fully decorate the ole APT.

3. Today I got my Kraft magazine in the mail and I am excited to try some of the recipes! There are some good ones in there this month. Although, I am convinced that the magazine contains some magic brain washing powder between the pages.

We went grocery shopping this evening and I kept grabbing Kraft products. I was not even doing it on purpose. And I suddenly found myself CRAVING Kraft Mac 'n' Cheese and a grilled cheese sandwich with Kraft cheese. That is marketing at its finest.

4. We have no plans for our Labor Day weekend which seriously stresses me out. We can't really do anything for the weekend because we have to be back for Sunday morning. Not having plans on a holiday weekend makes me want to cry. And then I realize that is dumb and I need to get over it. I am lucky to have a weekend that I can use to relax and spend time with my cute hubs.

5. Today I did not put my hair in a ponytail until 5:30. That's progress people! And I wore my new girly perfume!

Beth said...

Love Kraft Magazine!

Heather said...

you do better than me cause I sleep in a ponytail. I pull it back instantly!! I love Kraft magazine too, such good recipes that are easy!!

Demara said...

now you're making me hungry for KD and Grilled Cheese! ouch :P haha

I love your 'coffee table/foot rest/extra seating/' type table thingy...what's it called again? oh dear. getting old...or rather been out of school too long!

Do you think you could make the pix a little bigger? it would make seeing the end tables easier ;) i think a nice colorful calm scenery picture would be nice above your couch.

oh and yes...we will be living in the same place, renting, forever too! lol Totally understand the feeling...

even though we're moving in a month, we'll still be in the same cheap building in the scuzzy part of town...but I suppose it could be worse. I am forever grateful that it's spacious at least...and only cheap because of the location and old building issues...but hey the place has had lots of make-up put on, so it doesn't look THAT bad! ha. We've already been here 5 years...and we hope to be here another 5! hehe So yeah, totally understand the feeling.

And about he ponytail. GOOD JOB!
but you know, you should be comfortable. I was daring and got my hair cut real short, because I always wore it in a ponytail...now I don't need to put anything in it...LOVE THAT...I feel like it makes me look older! the long hair and pony tails made me look like I was still in High School...haha

Anywho this turned into a VERY LONG comment...

Your Welcome!! :))

I think you're cool either way you wear your hair. It's your heart that matters most anyway or else we're just resounding gongs right? lol

Rachel said...

yay for progress! :)

Rachel said...

I am the worst at throwing my hair in a pony tail for the day.

I'm also rather jealous tht you and Lindsey get to hang out! OK seems like the place to be!

Faith said...

Kirklands is awesome! The lamps and tables look great...definitely adds so much to your home =)

Rachel H. said...

I put my hair in a ponytail as soon as I got out of the shower this morning, so don't feel bad! :)
