Monday, Schmonday

I'm in a weird mood. Probably just because it's Monday. I guarantee this post will be all over the place.

I could also be PMSing because everything is making me want to cry. And I had to put gas in my car this morning and that's one of my least favorite things to do. I'm also feeling a bit jilted/irritated/saddened at the fact that that ZERO people left a comment on my last post. And usually I don't care about the number of comments I do or don't get, but I cared about them on that one I guess.

Today is also a scheduled doctor's appointment and it's my least favorite kind of appointment to go to in the world so I have that to look forward to all day long....

In other news, we are trying to sell Todd's hunting boat. And we expected it to take a while, but not as long as it's taken. We had several people interested over the weekend since we listed it in a few different areas and not just locally. And we almost thought we had it sold and then the guy walked away. And I'm stressing a little bit, because financially, we kind of NEED this boat to sell.
While Todd was off buying tires for the trailer that comes with the boat we thought we had sold, I worked on a birthday banner for Tommy's party. I have seen them everywhere and knew I could make one. I just had no idea how much work they were. And this birthday banner might be used for every birthday from now until he's 27. This was right before I added the ribbon to the back. It's pretty cute - even if it took me FOUR hours to do it.
And I seriously can't believe my little boy is turning two this week. He is so smart and so much fun and so incredibly adorable - it just amazes me how quickly he has grown up this year and how much he has learned. I'm convinced he is a genius.
Oh and yesterday, I was asked to be a part of a worship/rock band that is being put together and I'm kind of excited about singing with a band. Though I'm still not sure if my voice is the best fit for a rock band, even if we are doing worship songs. But I'm feeling kinda "cool" that I was even asked. Either way, it sounds like fun and we'll see how it goes.

On a side note, I've been all about trying new recipes out lately. Tonight I'm channeling my inner Pioneer Woman and making Grilled Chicken with Lemon-Basil Pasta. Looks good right? I'm actually all about recipes that use lemon. It could be my favorite ingredient. When life hands me lemons, I make my Grammy's lemon cake!

This week feels like it will be a flurry of activity before Tommy's party on Saturday. I still have a couple of projects to finish up in preparation for it. I just found out this morning that a couple of the invitations that I sent out didn't make it to my friends. And I would like to ask the post office how my bills always make it to where they need to go, but fun things like cards or letters or very cute invitations, don't always make it to their destination.

Oh and Tiffany will be here on Saturday!

PMS. Doctors. Boats. Banners. Rock bands. Cooking. Lemons. Post-office issues. I told you this post was gonna be all over the place. Glad I could follow through with that. Hope your Monday a bit more put together than mine!


  1. Hey girl!
    Hope all is well!
    We are all allowed a crazy day every once in awhile! hehe! I can't believe Tommy is almost 2!!!! Where has time gone? and omg I love the birthday banner!
    Hope your doc appt is super fast and easy to deal with! ugh! I hate those appts!

  2. The banner is adorable!
    Here's a new recipe I tried recently that all of my boys (2, 7, and hubby) gobbled up! I added grilled boneless skinless chicken breast. I balked a bit at the price of the pecorino romano cheese, but it totally made the dish. Next time I make it I'll price the cheese at Trader Joe's before I buy it at the neighborhood store.

  3. Hopefully the boat will sell soon! The banner is super cute!
