Happy Friday!

Happy Friday All!  I'll be heading south to my home town tomorrow afternoon and I'm sure to start seeing theses on the scenic driver there.   I love that drive.  It's so nice to see the country side after being in the city for so long.  On the way back Sunday we'll probably stop at the roadside apple stand for goodies!  Even though it's getting cooler, it's things like this that make me happy it's becoming autumn.  Have a great weekend!

The Bachelorette Party

Oh, I could go on and on about this subject but I don't have the time or energy this morning.  One of my dear friends is getting married next weekend and this Saturday is her bachelorette party.  I didn't think I was going to go because it's an hour and a half drive and I'm still playing catch up big time after the move!  But I've been working my butt off this week to try to get back on track, work-wise, and if things go well today and tomorrow, I just might make it!  I have no idea what's in store at this party.  I was surprised to learn that her fiancĂ© is going to be serving us hors d'oeuvres, and apparently not going to be at his own bachelor party!  Bachelorette parties can really vary a lot in levels of classiness (or not!). When planning one you're always looking for something unique to do.  I've attended both the ritzy manicure-and-martini type as well as the raunchiest, penis-theme, bar-hopping, strip-club type.   And lets face it, I had fun at all of them!   What was my own bachelorette party like?  It was something in between with both classy and sleazy elements... they hired me an Abraham Lincoln stripper.  "Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation of FUNK!"   Don't ask.

Awesome Etsy Finds

So I didn't go to the BBQ yesterday because I still trying to catch up on my work.  Blerg!  But I found time to put together so crazy cool Etsy finds for your wedding.  As you know, I'm not only an Etsy shopper but also an Etsy seller so I know from personal experience how truly meaningful it is to purchase something on Etsy.  Every time you buy on Etsy you are helping an artist to get on their feet, be able to buy groceries, and if nothing else you're telling them "Yes!  I think what you're passionate about has value!  Keep up the good work!"   So here are some very cool items by some very cool people!

Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day everyone.  Go ahead and give yourself the day off.  Get an ice cream cone, hit the beach or head out to the lake one last time.  Since I've been taking it easy since the move, I'm actually going to be spending the day catching up on work but I'm still making time in the evening to go to a BBQ!  Have a great day!
