This week has been so busy! And last weekend. And October? It's gonna fly. Then it's on to Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's.
I started coming home to an empty house earlier this week when my hubby had to go out of town for work.
A friend at work treated me to a chocolate-covered peanut butter Ritz cracker. Very yummy.
To avoid feeling lonely without my main squeeze, I went out to dinner (and froyo) with some besties, and made fun of Dr. Drew's "pity face."
As a celebration for the end of the federal fiscal year, I made these things (FAIL) to take to work. Crescent rolls + marshmallows + cinnamon + chocolate chips. Don't bother trying them. I know I won't make them again.
The marshmallow ended up kinda sorta exploded out of the rolls, which made a yummy treat for me, especially the crispy parts. The gooey part? Not my thing. Just tasted sticky.
Yesterday was the one out-of-the-office fun day that happens once a year: Health Fair! I had a great time learning about some of the health club deals (none of which are near where I live, wah wah) and picking up some freebies (wahoo for teeny tiny boxes of raisins!), then talking to a coworker friend. All in all, a great morning.
Followed by the longest afternoon in recorded history, because nobody was at work, and because it was Friday (/Thursday...whatever; it was the last day of my work week).
Oh yeah, and because I've become completely and totally addicted to Pinterest, I decided to make this. I found a bag o' buttons at Hobby Lobby, and glued a couple to a couple of bobby pins. Personally, I love the look, and I'm thrilled with the results. Next up: making bows to glue on bobby pins or clips.
Highlight of my week: yesterday, on my way home from work, listening to my favorite radio station, I called when they started promoting a giveaway, and as it turned out, I won! Woohoo! A four-pack of tickets to Oktoberfest at Mooney Grove Park...happening tonight!
I'm so excited! My love comes home tonight, and we're going to take our besties (the same guys I went to dinner with). Sooo fun!
