Gosh I Love Vacations.

I am coming to you today with a hat on.
Drinking wine.
At 1:56 pm on a Monday.
It's my first official day of this whole "staycation" thing and can I just say I am a huge fan?
One thing I have noticed however is that these days go so freaking fast when you aren't at work.
You'd think it could like slow down or something...but no, it doesn't.
It also doesn't help that my list of things to do is growing instead of shrinking.
Typically not a bad thing, I know.
You should be laughing if you understood that joke.
You should also be saying "You just haaaad to cross the line didn't you" if you are my husband.
Yes husband I did.
Because that's what I do. I see a line and I jump right over it. Staying inside the lines is boring.
Anyhow, in attempt to scratch off "write Tuesday's blog post" from the list, here we go.
Writing Tuesday's blog post.
A thrilling task if I don't say so myself.
Being that I haven't discussed our weekend yet thanks to that humongous giveaway going on right now, let's start there.
Friday night.
I used my dog for self portraits.
Not pictured is how we actually went out with friends to a brewery//restaurant.
There was lots of political talk (I am such a pro at politcal talk....not), ham and bean soup consumption (by yours truly), and hysterical laughter at the news video of my husband modeling a coat made for homeless people (now would've been the PERFECT opportunity to sneak in a link to the video of this, however my husband warned me in size 72 font that I better not. Size 72 font means serious business people.)
Saturday consisted of working our tails off at the lake cottage.
This weekends agenda was laying the floors.
My husband took care of that biznass.
He is a good little layer.
While he layed the floors, I was busy.....well I was busy taking pictures of lazy dogs and street signs.
Oh, I was also productive and took a picture of paint cans.
To make it appear that I would've painted or something. 

Not pictured Saturday was the gathering we attended at our friends house to watch Notre Dame move up to the number three spot in the country. Holllllleeeeeer. Eight and zero. I didn't even know such a thing was possible. I do have some sweet videos of our friends dancing, however I would probably not have a head for the remainder of my vacation if I posted those on here. Soooooo....

Sunday was a replica of Saturday.
Minus the whole friends dancing riduclous thing.

So that's that.
My weekend in a nutshell.

I am off to go deliver meals to my grandparents, record a vlog, go to bible study, answer emails, clean the house, catch up on all of the Giuliana and Bill episodes I've missed, and drink wine.
Lots and lots of wine.

Remember to record your vlogs for Wednesday party people.
It's going to be fun.
Promise you that.

Peace out chicken heads (said in the most lovingly chicken head way possible...)




  1. I've never been called a chicken head before...but I kind of like it ;) I recorded my vlog today and its fabulously awkward as expected...but that's why they're so fun, right?! Yay for vacations!

  2. Aww! Your dog is adorable :)

  3. I was supposed to leave on vacation today to Hawaii but flight cancelled because of Hurricane Sandy =(

  4. Sooo... when are you going to post that video that you're not allowed to post that we all know you'll eventually give in and post? :)

  5. Love that paint color, amazing!


  6. "Deliver meals to my grandparents"? you must be an angel... so sweet of you!!!

  11. I want to do bible study. I am very interested in you + faith because you're not so out there about it as some other bloggers are (which you have mentioned before) and I really like that. you interest me erin ;) and that is so cute you're bringing meals to your grandparents!

  12. Happy staycation! I was off today and said the same thing....why do the hours fly by when your home? Why can't a work day go by in like a blink of eye, darn it!!

  13. Staycations are as exciting as a vacay on a beach in the sun all day every day for a week!! You get to stay home and sleep in on a WEEKday.. not just Sat and Sun, but weekdays!!!

    Enjoy your time off and squeeze those cute lil pups for me b/c they are quite adorbs!

  14. Sounds like a busy but fun staycation. Your puppy is so cute!!

  15. What Aileen said. ^

    Enjoy your staycation! It's already looking quite productive... or tipsy? Whichever you're going for, I'm jealous.


  16. I would be very happy with a "staycation" at this very moment = I am very jealous of you now!

  17. Staycations are always nice! With as much traveling as we do each month, having a long weekend to do NOTHING at home is just as fun as exploring some new city! Enjoy your staycation, girl!

  18. Sign me up for a staycation. :)
    Have fun girl!

  19. OMG I want to see that video of your Husband so bad but 72 size font DEFINITELY means biznass!!! Anyways... just to clarify I WILL be in fact wearing sunny's in my vlog (very first vlog to be exact) because I decided to drink too much on Saturday night and broke my nose. Yup! Beat that one! LOL

  20. I love your puppy. I need a vacation right now. Enjoy yours!!

  21. Even though I'm still a Cincinnati Alum bitter about Brian Kelly's move to Notre Dame I'll congratulate you on your ranking! WooHoo!! Also I love your sign and paint can pictures...I think that was a very productive day! :)

  22. I love staycations! I have 2.5 weeks off coming up in December and I cannot wait. We'll still have holiday parties to go to, but none more than 20 minutes from home. Enjoy your time off!

  23. I think just the other day my hubby said he predicts the National Championship Game is going to be Alabama (our team) vs. ND (your team) - I think that will be one heck of a game FO' SHO!

  24. I love following your cabin updates.

    Oh, and is it December yet? I feel like I've been waiting months for it to be my ad time. Errr wait, I have been. Good thing I've been planning my guest post this entire time. Get excited.


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 :)
