Happy Friday!

I found a use for beer I can appreciate! An Etsy shop sells Michigan brewed soap, including Detroit’s own Kid Rock Badass beer. A fun gift idea for beer lovers.  I’m going to have to order one to see what it smells like.   On to the weekend.  Tomorrow I assume some bridesmaid responsibilities for … More Happy Friday!

Happy Friday

I love this because it’s actually the title of my story!  Except mine is not particularly short – very nearly 50,000 words.  My life has been consumed with writing the past two weeks but I’m almost finished and will be able to return to my usual activities. For the weekend. I’ll be hanging out with … More Happy Friday

Happy Friday

I found this on Tumblr and it’s too pretty not to post. I’m very much looking forward to the weekend.  I have two Girls’ Nights lined up.  One tonight with Kat and again tomorrow night with Cara, Melissa and Lindsey.  Sunday, Danny and I are meeting Chris and Emily for brunch at La Dolce Vita. Afterwards … More Happy Friday

12 Dresses

Yesterday I got the chance to step up to the plate for bridesmaid duty and go dress shopping with Melissa!  We started out at Elizabeth’s Bridal Manor in Northville and it was a partially successful visit.  I was a model and tried on a dozen dresses (not all of them warranted a picture).  The three … More 12 Dresses

Since my last attempt to learn a skill most children know failed I decided to keep this under … More And One More Thing…

Weekend Update

I had another busy weekend and did many things; however, it I’m honest I could have accomplished more. Friday:  Movie night turned into chat night.  I ordered the deep dish pizza I’d been craving and took a nap before Melissa came over.  We drank wine and talked weddings, jobs, housing, life in general.  I confided … More Weekend Update

Weekend Update

I had my first Birch Box experience this weekend.  Kat was sweet and shared some of her treats with me at movie night this weekend.  I dove right into the Chuao chocolate and it was delicious.  The best part about it is that it is sugar free!  It was a fun movie night.  We watched … More Weekend Update

Cocktail Party

I hosted my first cocktail party at the new place this weekend and I think it went really well!  I had a lot of fun and I think our guests enjoyed themselves also.  Planning a party for 11 kids is A LOT easier than having one for 11 other adults.  Some lessons I learned from … More Cocktail Party

Girl Times

This weekend was quite productive and fun!  I finished getting the house back in order post-kid party.  Hung out with Mom on Friday and we Skyped with B.  It’s so good to have that technology and SEE B.  She looks really good and happy – too good and happy really…. I don’t think she’s ever … More Girl Times
