Random Wednesday Thoughts

What a week it has been and it’s only Wednesday! This past weekend was super busy with babysitting the niece and nephew (where we experienced two toddler meltdowns in the middle of Super Target, and a lost balloon (or "ballooney" if you’re three) incident shortly after--that was an experience), shopping for Jason’s niece’s baby shower, attending said baby shower (Baby #3! She does make some beautiful babies, I must say) and helping plan my sister’s bridal shower. I’m also helping co-host a really good friend’s baby shower that is this Sunday so these last few days after work, I’ve been running around trying to get everything I need so I’m not waiting until the last minute (though six days before is kind of last minute, isn’t it?) to get it all done.

I’ve recently discovered pinterest! People have been telling me about it but I just got around to perusing the other day. Why I didn’t obsess over discover this site sooner, is beyond me! I am in LOVE with it and all the inspiration I have found. Right now, one board is devoted to the upcoming baby shower; another to fall clothes (not that we really get a fall in Florida) and one to the low carb lifestyle, the hubs and I try to live by. I so badly want to post some of the baby-shower pins I like, but I don’t want mom-to-be to see what we have planned (and she is one of my awesome six followers (speaking of followers; spread the love, friends! I could use a few more readers hereJ ) but once the shower is said and done, I will post a few photos. I seriously love planning shindigs and desperately hope someday I can figure out how to make it into a career (or heck, even a side job as one where I got paid at it, would be amazing!) If you want to follow my pinterest, you can do so here!

I am pretty excited that I get to relax and hear some good tunes with the bestie and another pal at the Maroon 5/Train concert, tonight! Matt Nathanson is the opener as well and I haven’t listened to him in a while but he has some good stuff too. This is definitely a girls night and I am counting the hours until the work day is over and I can unwind. Until my next blog of randomness, I leave you with my very favorite Train song, I’ve never seen them live and I don’t know if they’ll play this one since it is way old (I remember hearing it in high school!) but a girl can hope…


  1. Love pinterest! I just started on it. I can't wait to check out your fall clothes inspiration, I have been putting together a shopping list. I also love that song!! We seriously need to hang out sometime, we have so much in common. You should come to wedding set ups with us :) You can re live your wedding and get your foot in the event planning door :)

  2. I love your fall clothes pinterest. Can you design my wardrobe, please? :-) :-)

  3. I agree, Emilee! We do seem to have lots in common and omg, please let me know how I can come and do that! I would LOVE to
