Blogging has been on the back-burner for about three weeks now. I have been busy/needed some time away. There is a ton to catch up on: Hawkin’s going away party, a book review, phone photo dump, Mega Cavern ziplining and an apartment tour. After work this week I will be helping my dad on a project, but I am hoping I can still squeeze in time to edit photos, write and relax. Until then, I will leave you with my glory moment from this weekend.
I stayed at my parents house for the weekend to get away from Louisville, help my parents continue to clean out Will’s closets at home and have dinner with my parents and the Mister’s parents. It was nice to get away, but I am exhausted. Friday night I was preparing for bed when I realized I did not have my face wash. I further noticed the cleaned out bathroom in the basement. (Drew’s family will be living in the “apartment” in my parent’s basement while they build their house down the road.) Knowing that there was no way I could go to bed with full face make-up, I searched my options. I discovered liquid hand soap. Being the resourceful genius that I am, I used the hand soap. The liquid hand soap was contained in a darling black and chrome soap dispenser I can imagine my mother getting tickled pink about when she came across it in Bed, Bath and Beyond. I figured this was the best I could do. Roughly 30 seconds after drying my face off, I recalled how painful it was to get hand soap in your eye. I continued to rub my eyes and remembered Will left face wash upstairs in his bathroom. Recap: Instead of simply going up a flight of stairs to retrieve face wash, I decided to not only dry my face out but also burn my eyes while doing so.
On a lighter note, the Mister has caused me to become a lover of Bliss n Eso. I hope you can enjoy their music as well.

Man, I love Cher Lloyd. She seriously has something special about her.

By Sunday, July 24th, I am officially in the clear for my busy summer to be over with! I could not be happier. The Mister seems excited to be able to have some down and lazy time as well. This past week has proven to be the craziest week of the entire season, maybe even year. Let’s do a quick recap:
- I began the week house sitting in my hometown. This caused an early wake up call of 530am (by the way, I cannot remember the last time I saw 530am when it was not walking out of a bar…) to get to work on time.
- I did my nanny thing once this week.
- Pulled in my full work hours this week.
- My little brother moved in; my little sister moved out.
- I bought a couch along with finishing up the decor of my home. (Tour coming soon)
- Alyson celebrated a birthday.
- Billie came to hang out.
WOW! I was loaded down this weekend. No wonder getting out of bed this morning for work was the hardest thing I have ever done to date. I am the least dramatic person I know.

One of my absolute favorite songs is The Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows;” I am not even a Beach Boys fan. Their music for the most part was all too surfer for me until Brian Wilson started to go a little crazy and experiment. After that, I really enjoyed their stuff. Earlier last week Derek and I had a lengthy conversation about covers, specifically the cover of “God Only Knows.” Obviously this lead us to look up covers of David Bowie, Queen and the general classics like such. I picked out some of my favorite covers of “God Only Knows” for the music Monday…first is the actually song.

Today was the first day in a long time I woke up mad and not feeling like going to work. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job and all aspects of it (for the most part), but today I was just not feeling it. Maybe because the weather finally started to feel like summer instead of unbearable heat, or maybe it is just because it is Monday. I quickly snapped out of the bad mood though when I walked into work and immediately got down to business. I have a feeling this will be my productive week.
