Monday Monday - Virtual Coffee

Interested in joining me for some Monday morning coffee?
• I SO needed the three day weekend! I'm feeling better today - a little less anxious and more rested. I'm sure that feeling won't last long as I head to my Monday sales meeting.

• Thursday we got off work early so Troy and I went for a run. He lapped me about 4 times but I still managed to walk/run about 4 miles.

• After that we had our own little happy hour at the house. We drank 3 bottles of wine and watched Beyond The Lights (I don't know if it's the wine talking but I LOVED the movie).

• Friday was my friend's baby's 1st birthday! A whole year has just flown by! 

• Saturday my mom's boyfriend invited me to go to his family's cookout at Lake Needwood. It is such a pretty park and even though it rained it was such a nice time!

• Got another run/walk in on Sunday with Troy. I did about 6 miles while he did 9! Love the greenery - glad I had something to look at while I walked some (most) laps :)!

• Troy ordered us steaks from Grillmarx for Sunday dinner! A great reward for getting off the couch and going for that run! 
Now it's back to the grind. Ugh.
How was your weekend?
How's your Monday?

Five on Friday

Hooray for the Holiday and Hooray for the  much needed day off! 
This afternoon I will be celebrating this cutie's 1st bday with him and his family! I can't believe a year has gone by! I adore this kid and I can't wait to watch him grow and for him to make me laugh (I just KNOW he's going to be a hoot).

So my manager decided he needed to hang a "to do" list in my cubicle. There are SOOOO many things wrong with this. In fact when I saw it I said "what the hell is this?!". 

First of all - I am HIGHLY organized when it comes to work (not saying I'm perfect but I've been in my role for 2+ years now...I have a good idea of what I need to do."
Second - I'm only in the office ONE DAY A WEEK. Need I elaborate?
Third - That shit just pissed me off in general.

I have a new game I'm addicted to: SimCity BuildIt (thanks mom). I love games where you get to build things, design a city, fulfill orders, keep people happy. I must've missed my calling in life. 

My mom and I like to do a dinner whenever it's one of our birthdays (this is in addition to the family dinner we always do with everyone). We finally found the time to go and celebrate my dinner at Founding Farmers. I think this is our official let's-celebrate-at-founding-farmers place because whenever there's an occasion to be treated - that's where we go. I normally get the chicken and waffles (so good) but this time I switched it up and got this steak thing that was topped with crabmeat and served on top of potatoes.  Two thumbs up.

Twice this week Troy got me outside running (one day 3.5 miles and 4.5 miles the next) and thank goodness for that! Not only am I full of stress and anxiety but I'm getting fat! 

What are your plans for the long weekend?  I hope you enjoy!

I see this on Jenn's blog and I love it so I'm doing it too! 

SimCity BuildIt and Yahtzee with Buddies oh and Township....I should really get a life huh?
Sons of Anarchy
To finish 2 of my 3 reads before Monday
Nada. I've been really bad.
Leftover pizza (see above answer)
Water with Lemon. I went BANANAS on the soda last week so I'm trying to overcompensate with water this week.
Also Linda - we talk a lot
Lots of funnies lately:

Just focusing on working on Ashby's blanket

Crazy. I'm full of stress and anxiety
That I have been blogging more consistently the past two-three weeks :)
That I wake up dreading having to go work. ugh.
Sparrows are really determined to make everyone's sprinkler a place for them to put their nest
The weather has been cool enough the past few nights for me to leave all the windows open to enjoy the fresh air!
I need to watch some videos on YouTube about how to better my crochet.
You know who.
Being open to more opportunities.
This post :)

Teaser Tuesday ::: The Fiery Heart

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, 
hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm

"I'm sorry I couldn't help this time, but none of you have the right to judge me," Adrian added. There was a strength and conviction in his voice that I doubt any of them had seen before.


YES - I'm still reading this series (this is book 4) and yes I'm really into it (still). 

Are you a Vampire Academy/Bloodlines Fan?

Don't you just love books in a series (or is it just me)?

Monday Morning Coffee

How was your weekend?
Ready for some Monday Morning Coffee?

On Friday I shared with you a picture of that nasty looking nest outside my front door. Thursday night I worried all night imagining all the bugs and creepy crawlers that could be living inside.  But to my surprise, when I opened the door the next day I saw the sucker that made the nest:

and thanks to Debi's sleuth skills she sent me a link that gave me more details of my new "neighbor". Swallows. Freaking swallows.


Friday night Linda and Keno came over to have dinner and play spades with Troy and I. So much fun (even though we are all so competitive that it stresses me out playing these games)! I ended up getting a massive headache and nauseous before the final hand so we dispersed early so I could hit the bed.

I was on Sammie Duty over the weekend. So I was up early heading to my mom's house Saturday to walk and feed her in the AM, afternoon and PM. OF COURSE it was the rainiest Saturday of the fracking summer. Was up early on Sunday too for our final walk together (thank goodness it was rain free).

Sunday was Steph's bday (yay!) so we got together Saturday night for early bird dinner at Bonefish Grill and then wine and dessert at another place.

My meeting on Friday went well (thanks for the juju)! I'll find out this week my results. I'll keep you posted! 

And because it's Monday...


What's going on in your world this week?

How was your weekend?

How's the coffee?

Five on Friday

Hello Friday!
I have a follow up today to my meeting from last Friday.  Will you please send me good ju-ju vibes again today? I think it really helped last time! 

I've been lousy with getting my 10,000 steps in per day.  I'm on Sammie duty this weekend so hopefully by me having to walk 3 times a day on Saturday and Sunday I will achieve my least once! 

Um. WTF is this and why is it outside my front door?!?

I want it gone like yesterday. It's giving me a serious case of the heebyjebbies

I'm currently reading 3 books right now so OBVIOUSLY I'm already thinking about my next read. Top of my list is Seabiscuit. Have you read this? Do you recommend or should I just rent the movie?

Had to spend the day in the field w my boss. Highlight of the week was getting some Chevy's. Man how I miss this place!

I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
