Lots of rain and lots of packing!

The wall in front of my desk in my office is entirely window. This is both wonderful and torturous! On beautiful days, I enjoy the sunshine but think of how I'd love to be enjoying the outdoors instead of being inside, and on gross days (like today) I'm happy to be in from the rain but am teased with the thought of comfy clothes, a blanket and a good book! All this rain is definitely good for our area and it will also help me be productive indoors this weekend as I attempt to pack 18 years worth of stuff!!! I'm going to think like Peter Walsh from "Clean Sweep" and try to get rid of TONS! This is our last weekend to get stuff together because next weekend is moving weekend! I am so excited and I will definitely post pics as soon as I get our place together. I may not be able to post this weekend but I haven't forgotten my update posts that I mentioned below. Everyone have a great, safe and dry weekend!

Major Blog Update!

Below are 3 new posts about random happenings in my life. Some more important than others! :) I know I have been MIA forever so I thought I'd do some catch up. I REALLY will try to be a more frequent blogger. I have still been reading so I'm caught up with everyone else but I have been a bad commenter! Stay tuned for my last weekend recap which includes a fabulous impromptu date with my sweetie and a spooky girls' night out with Jessy. Also I may have a tribute to a sweet furry friend if I can get the pic from Lindsay.

Big News!!!

Justin and I got approved for our condo!! I'm so excited! We move in on November 10th and we can't wait. We absolutely love it. It was the very first listing we saw and when I walked in the door it just felt like home. I can't wait to paint and decorate and truly make it ours. Here's some preliminary pics to get an idea. I'll post more once I get my hands on it!

This is taken from the main living area looking at the pass through to the kitchen. Peeking out from the left is the dining area.

This is the main living area with the door leading to our patio.

This is taken from the entry way looking towards our bedroom. The bathroom is the last door on the left and the spare bedrom is in the alcove on the right.

Can't wait to post pics of my "renovations"!

A fun way to go green.. and pink!

Don't you just love when you can pair a good cause with a good bag? I was at the grocery store the other day and couldn't resist buying this breast cancer awareness reusable grocery bag. And at $1 each you can afford to be charitable and stylish!

The fruits of my labor

In an earlier post I showed pictures of the herbs and tomatoes I planted. I am proud to say that they were a success! I've enjoyed a summer of fresh basil and rosemary etc. in all of my dishes. The tomatoes however, were slow going. I thought I wouldn't get a single red tomato out of that little plant. In the last couple of weeks though the color brightened and I was greeted by these three little guys that promptly were put on the window sill. It's not much but it's not dead which is a step in the right direction!

More Bloggy fun to follow... I've got some catching up to do!
