Random Thoughts on a Tuesday

August 17, 2010

Happy Tuesday everyone! I took Monday off of work to have a day to myself and it was wonderful. So hard to come back to work today. I'm sort of scattered today so let's do this update in list form.

1. They are shooting a movie right outside my office window! So basically my co-workers and I have not gotten much done today...we're too busy celebrity spotting! Hopefully I'll get some good pictures to post here since they are filming all week.

2. My mom sent me this beautiful necklace in the mail yesterday.

I totally whined to her about wanting an Anthropologie necklace that the Pioneer Woman wore on the Today Show. So, being the most awesome mom that she is, she went to Anthropologie to look for it...and then e-mailed me saying that it was not cute at all in person. I trust her judgment...but was so surprised to find this way cuter necklace in the mail. I love it way more than the Pioneer Woman one. Thanks mom! (I'm wearing it today!)

2. The husband was in a golf tournament on Saturday. He brought this home this little gem:

3. I recovered one of my kitchen chairs in burlap the other day.

Not sure how I feel about it. The chair needs to be painted a brighter white...and then I was thinking of painting something on the burlap seat. Maybe a number, or "R" for our last name. Thoughts?

4.  Yesterday I was supposed to sleep in but instead was woken up by vomit noise coming from Wrigley. Here is the culprit:

  4. Great necklace. I love love love the idea of your inital on the burlap.

  5. What an amazing necklace! Great job Mom! I love the idea of painting/stenciling something on the burlap. Numbering the chairs or favorite symbols would be so cute! And I would kill to have a movie being shot outside my window. Nothing cool ever happen anywhere close to my office.

  6. I'm glad you like the necklace.....when I saw it I knew instantly it was you! I laughed out loud at the husband's trophy. I do hope you have a prominent place to display the evidence of such great achievment! I had no idea he was such a talented golfer!
