#1 - I must admit that I'm pretty damn impressed with myself and how gorgeous my back area is turning out this year. Oh I'm definitely giving myself a big high five on this one. I know we have a small little area to work with, but I'm loving it! With the cooler temps we've been having, it's made it even more enjoyable.
#2 - I am even more excited that I came across this fun page on FB thanks to Dixie Delights!
HKL Designs - I'm in love with all the fun thing she has! I scrolled through her entire page and found probably a dozen things that I must have. To start off with, a personalized family monogram! Yep, I'm definitely going to need that! I know my husband reads this blog, so let's just put it on the record that he's been warned. Some things she has on her list I've already purchased for Christmas gifts, so hopefully family members won't visit this site...hint, hint! And yes, I actually got started with a few Christmas gifts last weekend when Rob and I were in NC. Come on people, it's a mere 4 months from now.
#3 - My sweet and darling nephew turns 21 next month? Holy hell how did that happen? I of course still treat him like he's my little 10 year old nephew, and constantly want to love and spoil him. Well for his 21st birthday I've been sending him multiple cards leading up to his big day. Each card has a special message and a fun gift inside. The first was just a gift card to his favorite restaurant - Panera. I know, it's not that exciting of a place for your favorite restaurant, but he loves it! Some will have lottery tickets inside, cash, gas card and any other fun ideas you want to give me, and I'll use them. :) Well, his next gift going out is this t-shirt. And don't act like this isn't your favorite commercial as well.
# 5 - last but not least, I am very excited for an upcoming weekend with just the girls! I got an email this week that flights are being booked and we will soon have some visitors here in B'more! Can't wait to finally meet Dee & I Do Declare . MCW and I are finally getting together with these girls the first weekend in October! We know them from their blogs, from which comments turned into email exchanges and then text messages...it's like we've been dating, but haven't met. :) Blogging has turned up some fun new friends, and I'm looking forward to a great weekend with them all!
So, was that list not the most exciting thing you've ever read? You're probably wondering why I haven't done this more often. :)
Happy Friday girls, and have a fabulous weekend!
