so I accidentally changed the layout of my blog when I was trying to change the layout of my new home decorating/renovating blog, The Hateful Hovel. oops. so now I guess I have a new layout. I've been meaning to change it anyway, so no big deal I guess. not sure how I feel about this one yet' it may very well change again.
but yeah, work started yesterday on the bathroom. pretty exciting and terrifying. go check out the aforementioned blog to find out more.
I bought a new bikini on Friday, even though I didn't think I'd be un-gross enough to wear one this year. I think I did a pretty good job getting into some semblance of shape, and I doubt I am bad enough to look at that anyone is going to try and convince me to put more clothes on. I still have about 9 pounds left to go until I am at my goal weight of 115, but I can deal with that for now. some would argue that 115 is too low for someone who is 5'6" anyway (I'm looking at you, SparkPeople), so I think 124 will do for the time being.
I recently bought a little pink idea book at the recommendation of this blog post. it has really been helpful in making sure that I do not forget all of the great ideas and stuff that I have while I am out and about. I am incorporating a lot of ideas from this post into my household planner. right now it is still in the planning stage, but I hope to have the best household planner ever by the time the new year comes around. it will have everything - blog post ideas, daily to-do sheets, decorating sheets, garden planning sheets, gift-giving records, party-planning lists, grocery lists, meal planners, holiday cookie records -seriously, it will be the planner to end all planners. speaking of to-do lists, if you are like me and cannot exist without one, I suggest you check out teuxdeux.com for a quick and easy free online to-do list. it is amazing and I love it.
Gamesday is six days away and I could not be more excited about it. and then, the following weekend I go to the beach. and then, the weekend after that, Chris and I are going to Longwood Gardens. best stretch of weekends ever. cannot wait.
