Today is not a good day.
- My cat ate my brand new (indoor) Orchid
- In attempt to be productive I went down to City Hall on my lunch break to get a parking permit so that I can PARK IN FRONT OF MY OWN HOUSE and was told I owe $500 in parking tickets
- Work is making me want to gouge my eyes out with a ball point pen
- I dropped my iPhone twice today and it’s acting all fucked off
- etc., etc., etc.
So my Music Monday question for you is, what song/artist cheers you up? I could use it.
Thank heavens this week is over. I got sick, had a visit from Aunt Flo (What? It’s not like guys read this anyway) & was SWAMPED with work–both personal and professional.
The weekend should be a nice mix of business & pleasure. Tonight Glenn & I are going to dinner with Submerge pals Jono & Melissa. Hot Italian + drinks + comedy show = lovely Friday evening. Can’t wait.
Tomorrow I blocked out the entire day to run a couple of errands, do laundry & for the most part, crank out a significant portion of my redesign. Last night I knocked out the wireframe and started the layout pages and it’s coming along rather nicely. Even Glenn says he’s so proud of my improvements as a web designer. I’m really on a roll here and it’s exciting.
Sunday we’re babysitting my adorable little sister for my mom & heading to Apple Hill with Jordan, Ashley, Jenn, Matt & baby Dylan. We go every year (although this year won’t be lame like the others because of lame ex boyfriends) & I’m so stoked to drink apple beer and pick out a pumpkin! I love autumn; it’s my absolute favorite season and I’m so glad it’s upon us.
Happy Friday, behbeh’s!
What are ya’ll doing this weekend?
Ohai. Sorry I am just now getting around to my TILT post but today was a CRAZY day at work. I went in this morning to discover my PC there was shot to shit. The Blue Screen Of Death was sitting there, taunting me. “Oh, you think you’re gonna be able to log in and use me as your little bitch? It’s not like you do any actual work on me anyway. Go fuck yourself, Liz.” That’s srsly what it would have said to me (if you know, computer could talk). Anyway, long story short, IT came out and said I needed a motherboard & RAM replacement and it would take a couple days. Fml. So today I spent the rest of the afternoon on a loaner computer that was shit and barely had access to anything so needless to say I wasn’t able to be my usual bloggity self. Sorry.
Here are some things I have been loving this week in the form of pictures. All are taken on my iPhone using the ShakeIt Photo app I’m obsessed with.
My beautimus Ikea desk. It’s probably the best thing I’ve bought since our new flat. I absolutely love having my own workspace.
Behold the batch of rainbow chip cuppies I made for my large Mexican family for dessert on Sunday family dinner night. Mmm.
On the topic of dessert, this white chocolate lime mousse pie & coffee from Rick’s Diner was AMAZING. I am such a fat kid :(
Last night Ashley & I met up with some girlfriends for Scraps n’ Sh!t, a monthly session where we all get together and drink wine and be crafty & gossip. This months theme was feathers. Check out the cute stuff I made! 2 hair comb/pieces & a feathery pendant heart necklace. I can’t wait to sport them.
Oh, how I love receiving packages in the mail. Such a lovely alternative to the usual bills and junk mail which make me grumble. A big hug & kiss to miss Clarabelle for sending me the amazing goodies I won in her giveaway<3
Inside the other package was the raddest, most fantastical and fairest decal in all the land. Srsly how epic is it? Lovelovelovelove.
Mint-chocolate pudding. As a snack. Because who doesn’t love pudding?*
No one is as lucky as us We’re not at the end but oh we already won No one is as lucky as us
* If you don’t like pudding well than congratulations, you’re not a fat kid like me. Ha.
I’m constantly getting asked which blogs I read/recommend and so I figured instead of going through the tedious process of filtering through my feeds and choosing some at random to suggest, I figured I’d just post everything that’s in my Reader and let you guys do the dirty work of sorting through it all :)
The following is everything I read on a (mostly) daily basis broken down by it’s category. If you have any questions let me know!
