Three days away from my newsfeed has done my mind some good! Was anyone else brave enough to join this weekend? It is crazy to me how I feel that my days grow by at least two hours when I cut out time spent scrolling through my friends’ latest updates via Facebook, Twitter and my most recent obsession, Instagram.
I hope someone was able to catch some rays by the pool for me over the holiday! KC had crazy thunderstorms yesterday leaving me without an opportunity to work on my summer color…Tragic, I know! I thought today I’d supply you with some snapshots of how I spent my three-day weekend…since I’m sure everyone is dyyyying to know what I filled my time with. ; )
Friday night BRS had to work so I was able to join some friends out at “The K”. $1 Hot dogs + Fireworks show? Summer has definitely begun! I was really hoping to catch a game in the Royals/Cardinals series this week (I’m a Cardinals fan, for those who were curious) but I’m afraid between client meetings and BRS’ schedule that probably won’t happen.
Saturday morning meant breakfast with the hubs! Chocolate chip, blueberry and strawberry pancakes made by this handsome devil. With our crazy work schedules we crave lazy mornings like this when we can catch up after a long week.
Saturday afternoon my aunt enlisted my help in purchasing a few items for an upcoming job interview. I honestly had NO intention of picking up anything for myself…BUT then there were some major sales going on. And I just decided to look around…you know, just a little bit and that’s when it happened…I found THIS beauty at The Limited. FOR $16.00. How could one say “No”? I have been needing a bag that is large enough to carry my MacBook Pro and I’ve also had a crazy affection for gold lately. Match made in handbag heaven.
BRS and I went out to lunch after church on Sunday at one of my all-time favorites in Kansas City. Winstead’s. (<- This was actually the first time I visited their webpage and it cracks me up that it says “Serving your addiction for over 70 years.” Yes, Winstead’s, you have served my addiction for 22 years and that addiction is your Cherry-Cream Sprite.) BRS has learned one special key to my heart is this drink right here. On this visit, I tried to resist when we first placed our order but when BRS’ jaw dropped after I told the waitress I’d “stick with water” I knew I had the go-ahead to catch the waitress on her next walk-through. And oh, was it delicious! If you have not tried this combination, you are missing out!
Another addiction of mine that we should probably shed light on at this point is coffee. I know its bad. But I need it, I really need it…I had a craving for a cup on Sunday afternoon and so I got to make use of my pretty Anthro mugs we received as a wedding gift. I normally drink my coffee on-the-go so these babies don’t get near as much use as I would like. Fortunately for me, a Sunday afternoon cup ‘o joe presented the perfect opportunity. And I’m convinced my coffee actually tastes better in a pretty mug too.
Put up some new samples on the Handlettering & Calligraphy page! To my calligrapher friends reading this… how do you ever manage to come away from work with clean fingers? One would think I dipped my fingers in the ink.
This quaint little home in our neighborhood was all decked out for Memorial Day. So cute, right? A HUGE thank you to those men and women serving our country. Somedays I think about it and realize that I am such a spoiled brat for the things that I get upset over. Service men and women…you rock.
I also did a little work around the blog. Made some minor adjustments to the header above, updated the right side column, the Blogroll page and added MRS Paints. What do ya think? I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!
