The Friday Files

I hope you had a good week!  All is well here.  I am happy to say that the construction part of our kitchen reno is done.  I am having the bar chairs reupholstered, and I am hoping they will be finished before Thanksgiving.  I am planning the big kitchen reveal then.

We are expecting a chilly, rainy day today.  The Mister is at the grocery store right now.  We have been eating a lot of takeout lately while the kitchen was in reno mode.  I'm hoping for a soup night while sitting around a roaring fire, watching Doc Martin.
Reach for the stars, Katie!

My Favorite Reader - Jude


I hope this post finds you well.  How was your weekend?  I had a very good one.  Friday night, I met some ladies from the 'hood for happy hour at our village wine bar.  It was great to catch up with them.  

Saturday, we met our favorite parents-in-law, The Adorables, for a delicious lunch at Jose On Lovers.  My daughter always asks if we talked about them.  I honestly tell her that we don't.  I don't think she thinks we have lives outside of our children.

We hit a hiccup in our construction process.  Hopefully, we'll get back on track today.

The Mister takes deep cleansing breaths when he is out in his precious garage.  It's hard for him to see such chaos in his pristine space.

I hope that you had a good week.  Ours was busy and looked a lot like this.  We are doing a little refresh on our kitchen.  It's going to be a 4 to 5-day process.  We are replacing the countertops, backsplash, sink, faucet, and hardware.  

It was either the kitchen or a facelift.
The Mister flipped a coin.
The kitchen won.
I told him he was too old for elective surgery, anyway.

Designer of the Day


Did you have a good weekend?  Ours was fairly busy.  We woke up to rain on Sunday, which made me jump for joy.  


I met my old tennis buddy, Madonna, for lunch.  Who says you can't go home again?  We picked up right where we left off nine years ago.  She is such a character and never fails to make me laugh.

On Saturday, we headed to Dallas to check out #1 and Adorable Jonathon's sweet love nest.  We took them out to lunch at R&D Kitchen, a favorite of my #1's.  Our absent member, #2, was vacationing with the rich and famous in Palm Springs.
I couldn't be happier that my family is settled in one state.

The Friday Files

Did you have a good week?  Mine was very busy and a lot of fun.  Monday brought a catch-up lunch with an old tennis buddy and MOB.  Tuesday, I stayed home and pretended to do housework.  On Wednesday, I headed to Dallas for lunch and a little shopping.  

One of my favorite stores in the Big D is St. Michael's Woman's Exchange.  I could walk around this shop for hours.  Not only did I achieve my task of buying a baby gift, but I also met one of my readers.

My Favorite Reader... Annie

I hope that you enjoyed your weekend.  Our weekend was very relaxing.  We filled up our Costco love tank, took care of a few errands, and went out for a nice lunch. 


No filter!

You will never see these two words under a photo of me.

About Last Week...


I hope that you had a good week.  My week's highlights consisted of one mammogram and the re-filling of two cavities. 

But enough with my bragging.

As many of you know, I was MIA last week.  I couldn't tell you ahead of time because I didn't want to tip off the paparazzi.  What can I say, folks?  It's a neverending battle.

Prime Time


 I hope that you enjoyed your week.  I certainly did and look forward to sharing the highlights with you very soon.

Today I am joining my buddy, Tanya from The Other Side of the Road, for her link party, Prime Purchases.  I enjoy this particular link-up because I love seeing what other bloggers are buying.  I usually walk away with at least one or two added items in my cart.
