Things around here have been crazy lately! The summer zipped by this year, as it always does. I’m sad to see it go but I can honestly say that I enjoyed it to the fullest. My son and I spent as much time outdoors as the Texas heat would allow!

Now it’s time to get back into the school routine. That’s a lot easier said than done! But now that I have most of the day to myself it’s time to get some things done that I’ve been putting off in favor of summertime fun. And I’d better be speedy about it, considering the holiday season is right around the corner. Before you know it we’ll be singing Christmas carols! Yikes! Where does the time go?

I got the bridesmaid blues

Okay not really, in fact I’m excited as heck! One of my best friends from highschool is getting married, and she chose me to stand with her on her special day. The only problem? Karen lives states and states away from me, so I am having to help her from afar. We’ve had a lot of all night Skype sessions going over all the details, and looking at wedding venues in Grand Rapids Michigan. There are so so many choices!

To make things a bit easier on us, we thought about choosing one of the wedding packages in Grand Rapids Michigan, but Karen is a bit more particular than one of those would allow for. And she should be, I mean weddings are supposed to be your fairy tale come to life.

The more details we hammer out the more excited I get! This is becoming more and more of a reality. I only wish I could be closer, I’m so happy for her. It would be amazing to be able to look at her wedding dresses in person rather than picture messages on my phone. But I suppose it’s better than not getting to take part at all. I’m going to be able to be there the whole week before the wedding, which I am so thankful for. I can’t wait to see her face when she sees the gifts I have for her.

Okay, I have to get back to browsing through pictures of ballrooms in Grand Rapids Michigan. Ah decisions decisions.

Eggs are well… eggy

Now that Easter is over, I’m left wondering what on earth I am going to do with all of these eggs! I used to have so many people around to pawn them off on, but now it seems like I am just downright stuck with them! Ahh I guess it’s time to get creative. There are only so many egg salad sandwiches, and deviled eggs you can eat before you want to claw your own face off. I’ll be spending the next few days browsing allrecipes.com for ideas.

I am also asking myself why the hell did I go to Walmart the day after Easter? Did I really think I would be able to resist all the aisles of clearance chocolate? Ugh, will I never learn!? Here’s to living off of Robin’s Eggs and real eggs for the next week!
