Ten on Tuesday

1.  Fun fact:  we are 99 days from my big birthday this year!

2.  Have you ever taken the time to listen to Amy Winehouse's music?  I'm not talking "Rehab".  I'm talking her "Frank" and "Lioness" albums.  Such a talented singer. It's a shame to have lost such a great voice.

3.  Do you work journal?  I've started to keep a work journal.  This helps me keep track of what I got done during the day and record anything else that might be important.

4.  I'm kind of obsessed with this bed:

5.  It was 80 degrees and sunny on Saturday.  Yesterday was back in the 30s.  Today will be in the 50s.  WTF?! 

6.  Hahaha!  Sometimes I love being a nerd.

7.  I'm wearing new pantyhose today and that makes me happy.  Yes, I guess I am a huge nerd.

8.  Melody's hair is finally starting to grow back after she was shaved a couple weeks ago.  It's starting to curl again.  She's still cute though.

9.  I can't wait to get planting for the year.  If only the weather would cooperate. 

10.  Okay, so I only have 9 things this week.

Weekend Recap...

It seems that there hasn't been a quite weekend in a while.  That's alright though, because it means I'm working towards my goal.  

Friday:  It was visiting time with my parents.  Melody got to play with Annie and I got to see my parents.  My dad got a new truck and just couldn't wait to show it to me.  It's pretty awesome too.  I tried to watch Pitch Perfect (love that movie), but fell asleep during the middle of it.  I think I missed a good 45 minutes of the movie.

Saturday:  I had a facial appointment in the morning.  She had a good time and booked a party with me!  Yay!  Afterwards, I spent the day doing laundry and helping my dad put the bed liner and bed cover on his truck.  Then, it was time to relax in the breezy 70 degree temperatures.  It was Bingo Night as well.  I ended up winning $50!!  I won twice and that was so exciting!  

Sunday:  I knew I was tired, but I didn't know I was this tired.  I ended up sleeping until 11:15 am.  Wow!  After some coffee and HGTV, my mom and I hit up Lowe's for some planting needs.  I got some seed packets for my herbs this year, some potting soil, a new pot for my house plant, and a small hummingbird feeder.  I still need to decide which flowers I will plant and get small pots for the house plant clippings.  After that, I spent some time with Mrs. P and celebrated Big P's 13th birthday! 

What did you do over the weekend?  Did you have a quite weekend, or a busy one?

Friday, April 11, 2014


My presentation went well last night.  Everyone said that I was a great speaker and did such a great job.  Little did they know that my whole body was trembling, literally, from lips to toes.

The technician was able to fix my internet on Thursday.  Yay!  I have wired internet because I'm too cheap to pay for wireless right now and the cable goes through my wall behind my couch.  Whoever screwed the cover plate back on, screwed right through the cable!  How it still worked, we don't know, but the biggest problem was that the construction crew who replaced the siding had cut my cable.  Thank goodness it was an easy fix.  Now, I can get back to work.

The weather has been beautiful and I have loved being outside.  We've got temperatures in the 60s and 70s this weekend, but Monday goes back to 45 degrees.  Ahh, the pleasures of Missouri weather.

I can't believe how quickly this week has gone by.  Seriously.

My bright green post-its came to my office on Wednesday.  Now, I'm super excited because I have new pens and fun post-it notes.  The basic yellow ones just don't do it for me.  :)

I've been spending way too much time on the DSW website. 

What have you been up to lately?

Random Thursday: What I'm Looking Forward to in Spring

I believe that spring has finally arrived in my area.  We've had a lot of rain and warmer temperatures.  I've looked around and noticed the green grass.  I also noticed the smell of fresh cut grass while walking around campus yesterday.  That's promising. So, what am I looking forward to?  This:

1.  Having the windows open more.
2.  The smell of fresh cut grass...even with my allergies.
3.  Walking/biking on the trails.
4.  The color of green everywhere.
5.  Using my patio.

Although I enjoy spring, it's not my favorite season.  With that said, I am really looking forward to it because this winter was particularly harsh.

What are you looking forward to?  Join in here.

Ten on Tuesday

1.  It's been a whole week since I last posted?  Wow.  I guess I was a little busy.

2.  This past weekend I got to see a couple of cousins I haven't seen in a while, met a friend's boyfriend, got to spend some time with my parents, got a pedicure, walked the trail twice, and gave a facial to an old friend.  Awesome!

3.  The internet in my apartment has stopped working.  I hope the technician can get it fixed fast.

4.  I give a presentation at an important banquet on Thursday and I'm a little nervous.

5.  My weight must have shifted because my best dresses don't fit right anymore.  Got to fix that right now!

6.  Because of an urge to watch Disney movies, the past few days I have watched:  Aladdin, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, and The Little Mermaid.

7.  Yesterday, my pens for work were delivered and it was the highlight of my work day.  Sad, I know.

8.  My goal to look more put together every day has been going really well.  After three months, I think I might be able to keep this up.

9.  84 days remain to reach my big goal.

10.  Having the windows open every day has been so nice!  I still close them at night, but getting that fresh air circulating can't be beat.
