Mid-Week Hello

Given that I will be spending the majority of my day on conference calls--oh glamorous I know--I thought I could "multitask" and post a little hello, too! As much fun as participating in engineering and consultant mumbo jumbo speak is, sometimes I just need to take a break. 
Is anyone else out there sick of hearing about our nation's debt and how our leaders can't compromise to meet in the middle in the hope to help our country keep our credit rating so that we don't have escalating interest rates, more cutting back of jobs, and another setback in trying to cope with the harsh state of the current economy? I know they are all campaigning for 2012, but your public is REALLY not happy with any of you.

Much to my dismay, I went shopping last weekend and ventured out to Forever 21 since it had been awhile since we had spent any quality time together--it must have been one of "those days" though, because I just wasn't feeling it. I did find a few new goodies and of course was happy in that I didn't have to shell out a fortune to start stocking up on fall pieces. See if you see the same theme I am...haha ;)
I am getting SO excited about Friday...bring on the wedding pictures please. Chris and Adrienne posted a little teaser late last week on their blog, which you can see here--tell me what you think!

I'm attempting another recipe tonight for my weekly "gotta try something new" goal--Jeff is pumped about my authentic Pizza Casserole I stumbled upon, though he may or may not have already gotten into the pepperoni stash I had hidden from him in the fridge. I promise to report and let you know how it turns out!

Our contractor came out yesterday to start discussing our ideas for the house and I cannot wait for him to get started next month...just some of the items we're having completed:
Mud Room Entryway System
 Downstairs Built-In Booksheves {though ours will have doors on the bottom!}
Adding glass shower doors to our not-so-finished downstairs spare bathroom
And of course, because we all need a little hump day inspiration to inch us closer to TGIF, I think this is quote completely applicable...
 "our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. a positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. it is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results"

  10. I could not agree with you more about the debt crisis. I really wish they would all focus less on reelection and more on how to fix this huge problem!

  15. "I know they are all campaigning for 2012, but your public is REALLY not happy with any of you. "

    COMPLETELY AGREE! I can't believe they really expect to get people behind them (either party) when our country is in the shape it's in right now.



    The wedding teaser looks great! Can't wait to see the rest of them!!
