Refreshment the size of my face

Do you ever go to the store with a particular "thing" in mind and have zero luck finding it?  Even though you swear you saw the exact "thing" there last week?  Do you mope about it for 10 minutes while waiting in line at Starbucks because the lady in front of you orders something so silly that the barista has to look up directions for how to make it? 

That kind of sums up my evening.

I decided to solve the problem by going to Michael's for a few supplies, and threw those together with some things from around the house.
Don't judge just because we're still using snowmen napkins from Winter 2009.  I promise they're almost gone.

Shortly after arriving home... project complete!
One guess where we are headed tomorrow... in the heat wave!

Also in the line-up tomorrow?  Lots and lots of banana bread!

Alas, if you've ever wondered just how big Starbucks "Trenta" size is.  The answer is that it is bigger than my face.
30+ ounces of Iced Passion Fruit Tea Lemonade when it's 90+ outside, yes please!

Keep those cheeks under wraps

I worked a 6+ hour shift at job #2 on Sunday, but I had some excitement to look forward to when I got home... the World Cup Final!  I started work at noon, so simple math tells you that I wasn't watching the game live.  I was terribly proud that I made it home and to my couch with a downloaded version of the game without finding out who won.  It wasn't until almost 10pm that I finally saw the heartbreaking finish.
Of course I wanted the US to win, but no game better exemplifies what a fickle sport soccer is.  All it takes is a touch of the foot (or head if your jersey happens to read Wambach) to win a game.  You can be up, or down, for 89 minutes, and all you need is that other 60 seconds to go the other way to change the result of the game.  It's one of the hardest but most exciting things that I love about soccer, best game in the world.

Bonus.  Shielding myself from Facebook, blogs, and all other social media so as not to spoil the game results, I also had lots of time to give myself a manicure.  Was it the most professional choice to be rocking at clinic today, no, probably not.  But let's be honest, a few of my kids were totally digging them, and a mom asked me for advice for her daughter's nails.  I used O.P.I.; apparently the Sally Hansen version just made her colors swirl together.
 And just to clarify, yes, I did just shamelessly jump into being trendy with this one.  Don't worry though, there are a million and one more inappropriate trends that I don't plan on partaking in.  I've already seen more than my share of these this summer- I've maxed out on 20-something of bum cheeks.  I promise to keep mine under wraps.

Happy Anniversar-plus-a-few-days

Sometimes, ok usually, when I write something I get distracted by life before I finish my thoughts.

Hence... happy anniversary to, us.  4 years (and 11 days) with the best hubs a zesty nerd could ask for.

And let's be honest, who else would put up with either of us?

 Looking forward to many more blessed and happy years.
