Just for Fun Friday!

Just for Fun Friday!

Just for fun this weekend — we’re balancing all the work we have to do with my three favorite things. Brunch I love breakfast foods! Hubby loves sleeping in on the weekend!   What better way to merge these to loves than with a Saturday morning brunch!  We’ve decided to go to one of our favorite brunch stops in the next town over — where their specialty is all things crepes. They have sweet crepes and savory crepes and the…

Just for Fun Friday — I’m a zombie

Just for Fun Friday — I’m a zombie

For whatever reason, I could not settle my brain last night.  My thoughts kept leaping from one thing to the next without giving me a break to calm down and fall asleep.  I tried reading, watching brainless tv, sitting in the dark, counting sheep, and even some warm milk.   By 3 am I had tried everything — and even a grilled cheese sandwich snack — and was finally able to catch a few z’s.  Sadly, I was wide awake…

Thursday Things — Pumpkin Carving Challenge

Thursday Things — Pumpkin Carving Challenge

October is all about Scary Movies, Pumpkin Spice everything, and all things “sweater weather”.  October also means pumpkin carving and trick or treaters! This year, I’ve decided that hubby and I are going to do a “thing” — a pumpkin carving contest!   We’ve invited friends to join us — and they requested real rules to be written up.  So I have them below.   Who Carved it Better? Goal: Carve the best looking pumpkin this world has every seen…

Camping and now a cold

Camping and now a cold

Camping this weekend was amazing!! We had a great weather and it was a great clean campsite with tons of other campers!’ The Morrow Mountain State Park Was an ideal first camping site for our little family     The tent was an online purchase — something we got on sale for a steal!  It’s actually an 8 person tent — but we got it for our little 2 person + 1 dog family so we can invite friends.  Now…

Nail Shape? Last weekend, as a treat, I got my nails done.  I still love the color and the sparkles! What I’m noticing that I want to tweak is the shape of my nails.  As they grow, the blunt “squarish” shape of the ends really doesn’t flatter my chubby fingers.  In fact, I prefer the more rounded shape of my pointer finger nail (which just naturally happens, I think, due to wear and tear).   Tonight, I’ll be doing a…

How can it be Monday already?

How can it be Monday already?

It’s so hard to wake up after a long night of no sleep Last night I made the mistake of enjoying a cup of coffee at 6:30 PM.  Like a Rookie! Of course, this meant I was fully wired when it was time for bed — and I just rolled around and didn’t sleep until way too late.  I don’t know for sure how late, but it was late. I can feel it in my eyes this morning that I…

It’s Friday! Why does it feel so strange?

It’s Friday! Why does it feel so strange?

Stress dreams I hate being late for anything. It’s a weird compulsion — stemming, no doubt, from my childhood and the fact that my dad’s former military. For whatever reason, I’ve had similar stress dreams the past few nights. In each, the day of the week is different but the theme is the same, I slept straight through something important. Last night, I slept through the assessment I am supposed to be giving my students! That’s very unlike me. And…

I’ve gotta get a move on my bucket list! We’re two weeks into September and I only checked off one item from my list.  That’s a shame!  Some things are going to be easy to check off (Looking at you Guac Day and Coffee Day!)… other things are going to have to be scheduled in and purposefully accomplished.   Reading time Going to have to get some reading time in on my book — Notice how I wrote “Girl” when…

We Saw IT and survived!

We Saw IT and survived!

This past Saturday, we went to see the newly released version of the Stephen King classic, IT.  I can’t remember exactly when the last time I saw the original two part movie with Tim Curry as the demonically other-worldly Pennywise the clown, I can say that this reboot is like watching it for the first time!   So creepy!   Hubby and some friends kept me company, but I tell ya — SOO GOOD!   The movie’s special effects were…

Just for Fun Friday — September Bucket List!

Planner Lovers — Unite! While being bored and lazy one day, (read: “avoiding housework”), I was watching random youtube videos and stumbled across something called a “Plan with me”.  Basically, there is a whole population of folks that plan in their paper planners and share the experience with others!  What?!? After watching a few of these videos, from various youtubers, I was mesmerized! I recently started my own Bullet Journal, so it was so neat to see how creative and…
