Okay, it isn't officially Autumn yet, but I am in full swing here at the Haus. I have a few random pictures I would like to post. I haven't been cooking anything since I've been home from Cape Fear. I think once school started, I just had to hang up my chef's hat and make do with Hot Pockets for awhile. Never fear, I plan to make a big ass soup or chili the day it starts cooling off and my practice with baked goods will pick up here shortly as well.
The count-down to Hawaii has officially begun. ONE MONTH from today, Brandon and I will be flying to Maui to witness our friends' marriage on the beach. It will be romantic overload followed by 5 days of snorkeling, museum hunting and sun bathing, to be sure. Having been on every size plane imaginable, thanks to my weekend caper with the girls, I am not fearing my plane ride to Hawaii. I think I will more than likely stay up the night before like a kid on Christmas Eve and then sleep the whole time. Dramamine is so awesome.
Brandon got some luggage for us today! MEGA SALE! JCPenney had a 5-piece luggage set for $49. Insane! Of course ... it is teal. But, a little Lisa Frank never hurt anyone. Plus it's Hawaii, so we will blend right in with the local color. We plan to rent a Jeep Wrangler while we are there so we can take the Hana Highway and soak Maui up in all its glory.
I wanted to put some new candles up on Etsy, but I don't have my camera! I left it in a friend's camera bag on the trip to NC and just blanked when it was time to unload all of my stuff when we got home. I was spaced out for a couple of days after that trip, to be honest. I don't travel well and I can admit that.
We've had a great Labor Day weekend ... which will culminate with Real Pickle burgers and homework tonight after I get done cleaning and doing 8,498 loads of laundry.
Things I learned this weekend ...
We own 4 versions of Monopoly, Nightmare Before Christmas is my favourite.
I have hilarious/awesome friends. I ♥ Zombie gifts!! Thank you Adam!!
Glitter nail polish is amazing; 3 coats deep, that is.
Heather is right; hat shopping is nearly as much fun as shoe shopping.
I am good at RISK, but ...
even if I get the two most important pieces in Monopoly, I lose ... every time.
My husband is great at fixing things!
I miss my orange hair ...
