Life...


...in my little house on my little street has been jam packed lately.

It's been rainy and cold and dreary and all around lovely outside, but we still got funkins...funky pumpkins.

=0)


Our electric bill was $200 higher than last month, higher than when we turn into the Griswalds at Christmas and light up our house so that it is visible from space. Higher than I am interested in paying. (pray the meter was just read wrong...is it possible to have an electricity leak??)

I went to the gym 3 times. No joke. (Hi Sam...sorry I talked your ear off! Consider it repayment for telling me about the pumpkin whoopie pies at Corner Bakery...haha) I only stopped at Starbucks on the way home two of those times, too.

Shipped 41 jewelry orders this week. Gotta love e-parties!! You should host one too (so easy and you get FREE jewelry!)...Christmas is coming!

A little bubbly, which seems so much happier when poured into a really cute pitcher. Made a regular Thursday seem like a special Thursday.

A rare supper out with all my boys.

I just asked for one nice picture.

Sigh.
We had Matthew drive Brian and Alex home on his way back to school and that guy that I like so much and I went on a date to Trader Joe's.

It's the little things.

Gotta grab the time when you can.

And then I almost wept....brussel sprouts. The real kind.
Turned into this...fingerlings and sprouts, oh my.

Crisis.

Brian's well loved shoes were soaked and he had to wear the new pair.

BIG crisis.

But then he switched out some laces and made them different, so all was well.

Slightly.

(have you met Brian?)

=0)
As for today...it's Friday.

I need to order sterling silver and buy toilet paper, dishwasher detergent and pellegrino (in glass bottles, cuz there IS a difference...really, there is) or it is going to be a slightly miserable weekend, in one way or another.

Other than that...there's not much going on.

What are your Friday plans?

  2. My Friday plans? I finished my report cards this afternoon, so tonight I am meeting a friend and we are going to an open house for a new craft business. The mom of one of my kindergarteners makes fabric goods featuring cute little fabric button flowers...everything from hair bows to brooches to wristlet purses to handbags. You can see her stuff on Facebook at Sweet Floweret. When we're done browsing and perhaps shopping, we'll go back to her house for a nice glass of wine and some conversation.

    Tomorrow Mike and I are driving to Bradley U. for parents' weekend. We'll hang out with Liz and take her out for dinner before driving back home. Sunday is church and small group. I'm so glad all my lesson plans and report cards are done so I can have some fun!

    New visitor from the Friday Follow! Those pictures of the boys made me laugh!

    Weekend plans? Ballet lessons, scenic drive to view the leaves before they all drop dead, and Trick or Treating at the local nature preserve.

    Have a great weekend!
