Tuesday randomness

It is quite surprising that I haven't posted some randomness in awhile, since after all, I definitely a member of the random blog post club. I tried to make this a Monday randomness post because after all Monday randomness is much better than Tuesday randomness. But anyway....

*I had just about the best weekend ever. Friday, my sister came over to help me with our favorite thing to do together... decorate kick ass cakes for people we love.

The picture is poor quality (you haven't heard that before, right?) because the old camera film hasn't been developed yet, but still isn't it awesome? The sea shells are actual chocolate candies that we made. And the "sand" is a mix of brown sugar and white sugar. After we finished the cake, Nathan and I made a last minute visit to one of our favorite places on earth, Dave and Busters. Yes, Nathan actually managed to get a Friday night off! We enjoyed an evening of games, shenanigans, and detective style questioning with Jenn and Phil.
Saturday was fabulous. Eating, drinking, and girlfriends poolside is always a good mix. Sunday I slept until about one and was pretty lazy all day. At about 8 pm I received a very last minute invite to have a couple glasses of wine with some of the coolest wine drinkers in the Lou. I won't name names, as I am sure you know who I am talking about.
*Work is back into full swing. Even though I have the super early mornings and full days again, I actually am pretty happy work is back to normal. Now I can focus on my own projects and clients. Sure I will miss strolling in whenever I please, leaving early to go to the gym, and taking casual days whenever the hell I please, but it is good to get back into a more steady routine. Plus, my new office is almost done! Hopefully tech will be finished with my computer tomorrow and my phone line should be in by the end of the week!
*I will get to see Nathan for four freaking days in a row!!! He managed to get off on Friday, so we are going to hit the road and take a small camping trip. I just want to hike some trails, relax, and spend some much needed time with the hubs.
*I was very excited to take a new Zumba class that started at my gym yesterday. But I was running late so I just stuck to the elliptical and some weights. I was able to observe the class and I am really glad I did because it is not at all what I expected. Wayyy different moves and motions, so I am not so sure if I will be on board with that next week.
*A happy surprise in the way of a bonus check came in the mail today. Only a few Benjamins, but better than what I was expecting which was nada. I have yet to fully decide how I am going to spend it, but I think it will probably not go to anything fun because I really want to get the credit cards paid off ASAP!
*The dvd player in our bedroom is toast and I am super bummed. Since Nathan works so many nights I like the distraction of a good movie or Family Guy episode as I drift off to sleep. We don't have cable in the bedroom, so now it is just kind of a useless TV.
*I actually have about 500 more random things I could post, but I am running out of evening. You may see a part 2 in the near future.

I'd never heard of Zumba until I agreed to do Keri's Zumbathon in Kansas this year. It was two freaking hours of NON STOP Zumba and I was so sore the next day. But I will admit that it was tons of fun. Get ready to shake your goodies!

Great post! This was a great weekend - not that I'm finally ready, I'm getting ready to make a mega post with pics :)

But after 3 days with you...I'm going through withdrawl!

Jamie said...

WHAT?!?!?! No zumba for you?!?! Booo.... The good news is DVD players are super reasonable these days! And that cake? Awesome...and it tasted EVEN better than it looked! Hard to imagine, but it was!!

Mary said...

My mom and I were still eating that cake on Sunday morning. Soooooo yummy and thanks again for making it; I've been telling everyone about it! I haven't gotten a chance to upload my pics yet.

Do you take Roxie camping with you? That's awesome that you guys will actually get to spend some time together!

Teresa said...

Jamie, I am not ruling Zumba out, I am just a bit apprehensive.

Mary, we won't be taking Roxie. She is just a tad too hyper for a tent. Nathan's parents are gracious enought to watch her for us.
