We Meet Again.

there is no corralation between this photo and this post.
well besides to show you how I awkwardly grab my hair when my picture is being taken.
and to say "Hi".

It's starting to settle in again.
Three day weekends are such a tease for retirement.
Have I ever mentioned how ready I am to retire?
I mean shoot. I'm pushing at least 10 solid years in the work field.
I sometimes think it would be worth it to have children so I could "retire" but then I remember that would actually be switching over to "overtime" and well yeah..overtime and I don't fare well either.
On the bright side I just remembered I have a getaway coming up in like ooooh...two days.
On a totally unrelated note, can I just say that when it comes to blogging sometimes you've got it and well..sometimes you don't. I am in the latter category as of late. To be honest with you, it annoys the heck out of me. I swear every ounce of creativity has up and left the building. If any of you have some genius idea of a topic you'd like me to write about, now would be the time to share.
The only thing keeping me going as we speak is Nelly on Pandora Radio.
There is just something about Air Force Ones that keep my fingers rollin'.
Oh hey I know! Weekend Recap. That seems to be a topic I could talk about being that we are just coming off of a weekend and all. Here are a few pictures to let you know what took place..
since I am sure you are just dying to know. It's okay to shout at your computer about how you could care less right now, I completely understand.
First up was the Kegs and Eggs party that started around 8 am Saturday morning.
I must say--this was the first time I ever drank straight out of a champagne bottle at 8 am.
In sweatpants none the less. But for Notre Dame football, it is necessary.

From there it was dinner with friends which somehow resulted in posing with naked statues eating fake grapes. Typical.

Annnnnd last but not least, on good ole Labor Day we attended a festival with the brother/sister-in-law. My "I am eating twenty three pounds of sugar today" nephew and his "Get me away from my Uncle Shawn" niece came along as well. I kinda love those two animals.
...and because the cup told me to...
I did.
Welp, it's time to hightail it outta here and partake in my favorite activity....
Margarita & Mac and Cheese time.
Cheers to a good week ya crazy cats.



  1. Honest to goodness, I just wrote a post about how bleh I've been feeling lately! Unfortunately, I did not end mine with some adorable weekend pictures!

  2. I am completely dry in the creativity field as well. I'm taking this month to step away from the computer and organize other elements of my blog like meeting new friends and evaluating future plans for it. In other news you look like a total babe in those sweatpants ;)

  3. If this is you at "uncreative," I'll take it. Happy New Week!

  4. Even on your most uncreative day..you beat me. Plus, you're writing a book. So geeze, don't hyperextend yourself. Wait, can only elbows and other joints be hyperextended? Iono...just avoid it.

  5. It sounds like you had a good weekend! I hope you get out of your blogging funk soon, because if I have to go too long without your posts - my world may be over forever. Okay maybe not forever but a long time. #justsayin. :)

  6. I went through a month of uncreative and have just recently started having any ideas. Also, is that live nudes sign in your house? Too funny! My husband has a bunch of bar signs up in his "man room" and I know he would get a kick out of that one.

  7. I always think you are pretty "on" so if this is off I can't wait to see you on aha. I love all your posts.

  8. I have to agree with others. You being uncreative is still more entertaining than me being creative!

  9. What a fabulous basement you tailgated in! Is that yours? It's awesome!

  10. Lol the "get me away from uncle Shawn" pic. And just so you know, even when you say you don't feel creative, your posts are always interesting anyway. You've got talent. :)

  11. Cute pictures from the weekend! I looks like you had a blast and a half! xoxo


  12. I'm convinced Air Force Ones is pretty much the best song ever.

  13. What!!! Your creativity bugs have so not left you!

    So suck it up and do some blogging! ;)


  14. Looks like fun!


  15. I think if you're ever stumped, you should just post about your day to day life! We all read because we find you adorable + hilarious, so more YOU is always a safe topic. xo! eliza

  16. All I have to say is ND better bring it Saturday because it's Boiler Up time.

    And I think we both know who's gonna win....or maybe we don't. Because I'm pretty sure you weren't going to say Purdue...

  17. Your posts are always great--even when you're feeling uninspired! You were one of the reasons my friend and I just started a blog...we hope to be half as entertaining as you are :)

  18. Looks like a fun weekend to me! As for new ideas...do your all time faves, stories from your childhood (I have a feeling you have many), more about you and the hubs, and/or more about the kids you mentor! You could just get preggers...that would give you lots to talk about ;) I am laughing just thinking about that!

  19. Ahhh i am assuming that was the good ole blueberry fest! i literally waited in line for an hour for those heavenly blueberry donuts. so worth it! I also saw an eight year old in a baby stroller.. that was weird.. Hope you had fun!!

    <3 Brittany


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
