Thank you all so much for the uplifting comments on yesterday's post. I was in tears reading most of them and had no idea so many of you have lost parents and in laws as well. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers, you have mine.
This week has felt like an entire month so you can imagine my delight when I woke up at 6:30a this morning, knowing it was actually Friday. Jon has been gone since Wednesday and gets home this afternoon so I am anxious to see him (and he's anxious to see his car too). Speaking of the car, you know what sucks...needing something in the garage that is blocked by a manual transmission car that you have no idea how to drive. And your husband is gone... haha

Tomorrow is my sister's baby shower and I can't tell you how excited I am. No lie, I started making decorations and coming up with plans the day after she announced it was a girl. This will be our 3rd big party in 3 weeks so after Saturday, our home is officially closed for summer entertaining. Sorry friends...someone invite us over!
This is totally irrelevant but yesterday I mowed the front AND back yard. Call me crazy but I really enjoy it. It's quite time and I am a perfectionist so I love seeing the straight lines I cut. We have plans later tonight and I didn't want Jon to come home from a week of traveling and have to cut the yard.
Chunky can sense when I am leaving and wants to be on top of me (so I won't leave)
Our pet's heads are falling off!!!!!!!!
Besides people thinking I am 15 years old most of the time, it is nice to be smaller than my little sister. Why? Hand me ups! Every so often I will get stacks of clothes she's grown out or no longer wants and it's like Christmas for me, since I am not much of a shopper. She gave me a huge bag this week and look what happened to be inside...
What on earth am I going to do with a leather bustier?! hahhaha
I am more of a jeans and pony tail kind of gal. Last weekend we went to dinner AT the movies and saw Ted. It was eh. We love Family Guy so it was funny to see all the voice actors and subtle references but it was 100% predictable.
Jon is loving my new camera lens (50mm 1.8) and of course, Ernie is the perfect little model
My latest mid afternoon work snack... try it
Looking at this walking up our staircase never gets old...
When Jon is gone, I get to catch up on all my crappy shows but for some reason I've been burnt out. I haven't been watching Real Housewives and I am not really watching much Olympics. Honestly all I wanted to do was watch 30 Rock but not with him gone so I looked for a new show on Netflix. Since last night at 8pm, I've watched 5 episodes of Better Off Ted, I love it! It reminds me of 30 Rock and is hilarious. I highly recommend it.
One last thing before this post gets incredibly random (okay that already happened) but I have these awesome black capri sweatpants that I have been totally disguising as work pants. Anyone else do this?
