Happy Friday, friends! How about a little Beef Cake to start off your weekend? LOL
Can you believe we made it through another week? WOOT! You guys, it is August. HOW DID THAT EVEN HAPPEN? I am not ready to let go of summer so I am going to do it up big this last month.
I celebrated a little early last night by skipping my workout, heading out to the back patio and cracking open a bottle of random wine. When Garrett got home he was like “Hey, you know this is like a $50 bottle of wine, right?” (I hope it goes without saying that this is NOT our normal Thursday night fare) so I told him it was to celebrate all of all the awesome things we would be doing this weekend. I guess I better start thinking up some awesome things, eh?
Awesome thing # 1: Reorganize our wine storage?
I’ve actually been in serious nesting mode lately — dusting and organizing and cleaning OH MY! I could do it all day long, actually and be completely content. I might do more of the same this weekend. Are you so jealous of my glamorous lifestyle? ha
How about we talk about some fun links?
