I have been horrible. Over a week since my last post I think? What is up with that?

I have been busy and I haven't used my down time to blog. But I will, I'm sad that my blog feels neglected. I know I don't have many followers but I really like to write and "talk" anyway. :) Plus I'm making a concious effort to include more photos in my blog because I think they really make it more interesting. And when you have been terrible about TAKING pictures it's kind of hard to add them.

Let's do a last-weekend-recap shall we?

Friday night we stayed home. MrHoppy got home from work late so we had a cocktail, caught up on Jersey Shore (don't judge!) and went to bed early.

Saturday was spent getting chores around the house done. We grocery shopped, organized, cleaned the house and then watched a movie. We had dinner with friends Saturday night and played Wii at their house.

Sunday we had brunch with the fam for my Grandma's birthday. Then we hung out at my sister's house for the game. I was glad the Packers won. I'm not a huge fan or anything but I hate the Steelers so I was happy.  There were 4 couples there that day and we had such a good time. O got to meet my friend K's daughter and they were so cute. She just started talking and her little voice just makes me smile. :)

Oh yeah, I also got a chandelier-type light fixture for our house! A sweet Craigslist find. It was listed in our city but that could mean anything. Turns out the lady lived right down the street! It's a gross brass color so I can't wait to spray paint it. I think I'm going to update our office soon and make it my pretty craft/sewing girly room and it will go in there. It will be a fun project that will include new paint, possibly some stenciling on the walls (!!) and of course the new fixture. I kind of want to find an old dresser or something to refinish and put in there too... I've been scouring the blog world looking for inspiration and have so many ideas running around in my head. It's going to be fun and I'll be sure to blog about it when I start!


  1. Glad you are back! I always enjoy reading your blog- especially when it is about working out and food. It motivates me :) Plus your ridgey is adorable and looks so much like mine!

  2. Aw thanks! You still need to post pics of your ridgey! :) I would love to see him/her!
