Weekend Recap

Another good weekend for the books, my friends.  Aside from the devastating Bulls loss last night (grr), everything went well - including our home inspection!  This house is ours and I couldn't be more thrilled about it!  The house inspection is indeed a weird process, but the inspector was nice and friendly and we shared some laughs in the down time.  I saw parts of the house I wish I had never seen (the creepy attic, the creepy dungeonesque area under the stairs (seriously, those kinds of areas in houses look like you might find some old bones in there).  But at least I saw them and do know for a fact that there are no skeletal remains, ha ha.  Okay, anyway.  Enough of that.  The house is in great shape, only a few minor things need to be fixed before we move in and we keep realizing that our yard is getting bigger every time we visit.  Aside from all that, the weekend was nice - filled with friends and family and warmth!  Some highlights include ::

  • Listening to Bossypants  to and from Louisville - Tina Fey is freaking awesome and therefore the time flew by
  • Beers + hot tub after a 5-hour drive, oh yes
  • Home inspection
  • Family cook out on a beautiful day
  • Laughing at 6 p.m. when "the rapture" didn't come to fruition
  • Arriving in town just in time for dinner + games with friends
  • Laying on the boulevard with my sweetums, reading books and yelling at ants trying to crawl on me (yes, we were wearing sunscreen)
  • Drinking John Daly's all afternoon while the threat of storms lingered
  • Shrugging off a Bulls loss with a game of cards and drinks with our friend Jacob

How were yours?  I hope the weather was good for you and you weren't impacted in any way by the newest round of severe storms.  My heart goes out to those in Joplin.

I am so glad we all managed to live through the rapture. I heard Tiny Fey's book was hilarious. I just read Bethany Fankel a place of yes and it was soo good. :)

Happy Monday

This sounds like a great weekend - I remember when we had our home inspection last summer before purchasing our fixer upper - it's such an exciting time! And I'm so glad you're listening to Bossypants - I finished it a couple weeks ago and just loved it!

What a wonderful weekend! I would share all kinds of excited expletives about how terrific it is that the house passed inspection, but that's simply not very ladylike. Instead, just know that I whispered them to myself in the office.

Sounds wonderful!! I have to drive about 45 minutes to and from work everyday now and I'm about to go to the library to see if they have any audio books. I wish they'd have Bossy Pants! But, in a rural town in Alabama, I'll be lucky if they even have audio books AT ALL.

so glad the inspection went well, that can be such a nerve wrecking experience.

SO thrilled everything went brilliantly at the home inspection this weekend! I spent my Saturday with papers and had a bit of a lazy Sunday, though oddly, I'm kinda glad about starting the new week.

Sounds like a great weekend! We had fun attending a friends wedding and visiting my family! It's so nice to get out of the city every now and then!
