Miscellany Monday


I spent most of the weekend shopping with my mom. It was great to get some girl time in as well as some retail therapy.


Fred and my dad played in a kickball tournament on Saturday while my mom and I were shopping. I bet it was a sight to see. Now, both of them are "so sore".


We've started training Knox for his "2011 Running of the Weenies" race. He does great at home, but his ADD usually kicks in at the race and he's more interested in other dogs than running!


After the hustle and bustle of last week, I am excited for a calm week ending with seeing Train in concert on Friday and heading to Chicago on Saturday for the long weekend! Now, if I could just get motivated to pack!


Over the past few days, I've been getting very excited about fall. I think I'm ready for Starbucks, pumpkins and cooler weather!


What's on your mind?

I'm pretty sure everybody in the entire city {BUT ME} was at that kickball tourney on Saturday. All of our friends play on a team, but b/c of the kids & their sports we don't. Well, the hubs doesn't. I wouldn't play even if the kids weren't involved in the things. I'd rather spend the weekend shopping ; )

Lindsay said...

I saw Train not too long ago and they were AMAZING. It was one of my favorite concerts for sure. You're going to love it!

Nothing like a little retail therapy! I love the weenie dog race. How cute would that be to watch? Hope you have a great weekend & even better weekend!!!
