Whatever Friday

Ohmygosh it’s Friday. Online BlogCon is in 3 days!!! {Cue panic.}

There is just so much to do before then. But first, I need to tell you all about my week! Yay you!

1. Well, my week was a ramification of the weekend. If you hadn’t heard, we had some unwelcome guests at our house last Saturday. (Well, for way longer than last Saturday but that’s when I finally realized they had taken up residence.) On Monday I revolted against my washing machine. So I still have waaaaaay too many bags of stuff in my garage. And two king sized comforters sitting out on my back patio. I’m kind of hoping if I ignore them long enough, they’ll either go away or walk themselves to the dry cleaners.

2. Today is the last day we have to comb each other like monkeys. Until next week, when we only have to do it twice.

{Well, I hope anyway. The lady is coming back to do a recheck Saturday. I am so freaked out it’s not gone I’m having a several day long anxiety attack. Seriously.}

3. I made lotsa sugar. Wanna see?

These pudding cookies are not louse-y. (Hahahaha, I crack myself up.)

I made cupcakes for two. Two friends, two ta-tas. Whatev. {Pssst….it’s PINK week at Something Swanky. Go check it out!}

 And then I OD’d on shortbread.

I made you some stuff this week that is too good not to share soon. If I can get my act together, you’ll be happy. 🙂

4. I hosted a luncheon for the teachers at Jordan’s school on Wednesday. It’s to thank them for all the time and effort they put into the carnival the school puts on. Methinks I’d rather just write a check to the PTC rather than have to attend said carnival. Just a thought.

Anyway, it was kind a cool because one of the volunteers made Zebra Popcorn. And everyone loved it and I reveled in the praise because they didn’t know it was my recipe. #foodbloggerproblems

5. Two years ago at the school carnival they had this DJ that played rap songs, which I have no objection to (I mean, my daughter knows all the words to “I’m Sexy and I Know It” so I’m not gonna judge). But whatever the song was, it involved gunshots. So I’m walking around with my Kindergartener and my husband playing kid games and buying son-cones and hearing gunshots for a full three minutes. And no one told him to stop it.

Seriously, that’s what I think of when I think of attending the carnival. Gunshots. {I’m a great mom, really.}

6. Um, Halloween is in two weeks. And Jordan doesn’t even have a completed costume yet. She does have a wig, but that’s sealed in a plastic bag in my garage. #momoftheyearawardgoestome

7. Um, since Halloween is in two weeks, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and CHRISTMAS is coming. Holy cow, how did that happen?

8.Seriously, Online BlogCon is on Monday. It’s gonna be great, I know it. #butIamfreakingoutanyway

Have a great weekend everyone! I hope it’s awesome and that you do something that does not involve laundry! 😉

xo, Dorothy

  1. Ugh, poor Jordan, poor you. I can sooo sympathise, we’ve had those pesky guests way too many times and triple the trouble! With having 3 kids that are close, they’ve been so hard to get rid of and the amount of laundry it causes is INSANE!

    I know this probably sounds crazy but I had to do crazy as some mother at the school didn’t deal with the issue and my kids kept re-catching was flat ironing the hair daily as close to the scalp as possible, it killed them. I also used some tea tree oil in their shampoo and made a detangling spray (conditioner, tea tree oil, lavender oil, and water) and used that each morning to wet/style hair in a braid and used a little hairspray which prevented the kids getting them again.

    Apparently the ‘visitors’ don’t like the smell tea tree and lavender oil so not only do it help prevent ‘visitors’, it should help with any other bugs, wasps, mosquitoes, etc.

    Hope they’re gone soon. {{big hugs}}

  2. Everyone knows that overdosing on sugar fixes everything. Hope there was some wine involved too.
    (I’m the awful teacher who doesn’t show up to any school event, so I doubt you’re an awful parent.)

  3. Ok I am loving the treats this week and by the sounds of that week you had you deserve each of them!!! Also I am on pins and needles waiting for blog con!!!!

  4. WHOA what a week girl! and sounds like it will just be getting CRAZIER – but take a deep breath and eat something with CRUST 🙂 HUGS GIRL

  5. Ugh, crossing my fingers the houseguests are GONE! But, I am SOOOOOO excited about OBC. The only bummer is that I’m at work until 5:00 those days, and I’m going to be DYING to get home and catch up. I CAN’T WAIT!! Seriously. Can’t. Wait.

  6. Have a great weekend Dorothy! So sorry about those stinkin’ houseguests. I loved your ta ta post btw, I was crackin’ up. 🙂

  7. sometimes I think it’s easier to throw out clothes and start fresh:) my laundry room is a disaster – and we didn’t have houseguests:(

  8. Can’t wait for our date Tuesday! Seriously, is it okay if we drink at lunch? Because judging by your week, I think you deserve a drink or five. I’ll be DD!

  9. i think we both need a good drink after the weeks we had, I hope our next few weeks are awesome to make up for it.

  10. Oh those pesky houseguests! We haven’t had to deal with that, thankfully, I would probably just cry. Have fun wrapping up all the details for OBC! So excited!!
