my laid back weekend

first of all, welcome to the 30 new followers I have since last week!
I hope that you will stick around for awhile and get to know me better.

this past weekend was incredibly laid back, so this post will be brief.

Friday was a pleasant surprise. I woke up to a blizzard right outside my window.
since being laid off, my tolerance for inclement weather has definitely multiplied.
currently snow is my favorite thing.  if we have to deal with winter temperatures,
I would much rather do it with a nice dusting [or feet] of fresh snow.

Saturday I spent the beginning of the day with Catherine [my half sister] who is six,
my mother and grandmother were also there.  we were on the bra hunt.
do you hate bra shopping as much as I do? they measure you, they tell you what you need,
yet absolutely nothing fits. by the early afternoon my boobs hurt and I wanted a nap. 

we also had "family dinner" at my house Saturday night. spaghetti and garlic bread.
simple and cheap for eight people. too many people if you ask me!
Kalie had to be locked in the kitchen while the little kids ate.. she's a bit of a thief.
her prisoner look was so cute though, that I didn't feel as bad about it.

Sunday... ugh.  I sat in front of my computer from 11AM until 7:30PM
[minus a quick Starbucks trip of course] and I wasn't doing anything enjoyable!
homework all. day. long. I hate accounting so much... I have no idea why I am getting an MBA
I promise you that I will never use it, at least not by choice.

I also got a lengthy email from Erin @ Living in Yellow
she had some really great ideas for revamping my sidebar.
please go see for yourself, and as always, I am welcoming new sponsors!

and that is that.  I hope you all had a good weekend as well.

  6. I hate bra shopping as I feel like my boobs are forever expanding. Some women might think that's a great thing... I find it completely miserable. I remember one time I got measured and I literally broke into tears when she told me my new size. I hate bra shopping.

  7. I love that picture of Catherine, I can't believe she was only six there. P.s. that spaghetti was delicious, you did a great job.
