Monday Musings

Because it's Monday, a list post. 

I am having a bad hair day today. Bad hair day + cute outfit = annoying.

Those pumpkin oatmeal peanut butter muffins? Y'all. So filling. They were the best breakfast this morning. And for someone who is usually starving by 10:30 a.m.? I think I've found a winner. 

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

I'm taking next Friday off. {Hallelu-yer.} I'm going to see my "big little brother," who just started college at Baylor today. I can't wait to see him and live vicariously through him for a few hours. :)

My husband is taking Wednesday off to sit at our empty new house and interview contractors about painting, removing popcorn ceilings and replacing an electric range with a gas one...all day. He literally has back-to-back appointments from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., with a little lunch break, of course. But honestly? I can't tell you what a relief it has been that he's taken the charge on this. I love him so much!

Speaking of our house, the paint color is a beige-y color, and we noticed yesterday when comparing paint that it's got a pink hue to it. Honestly? 

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

I had a little pity party on Friday night. As in, I had two glasses of wine and full-on cried after reading a "praise" e-mail from my boss to our entire office...that I was left out of. I busted my butt all week and then was left out of that e-mail. And it wasn't even that I wasn't recognized. It was that I worked so hard and felt like no one noticed. 

Moving on.

I can't believe Labor Day weekend is next weekend. Seriously? The summer flew by.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Do people even use cameras anymore? I thought I'd lost mine for so long and found it when we were packing. However, after not using it for so long, I feel like my iPhone suffices. Maybe I'll use it again when we have kids. 

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

This time of the year always makes me want to be back at Baylor. All 3.5 years I took 8 or 9 a.m. classes and was finished with school at lunchtime. I loved that I had my entire afternoon to do homework, play around and work a little bit. What I would give to go back to that time in my life! 

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

I heard Prince Harry was in Vegas this weekend. Who knew that Vegas was an attractive destination for not only Europeans, but a prince? 

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

My office is so quiet today, even for a Monday. Makes me want a nap.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Four more days until the weekend. I think I can, I think I can.
