...otherwise known as thank the lord it's Friday! It's been one heck of a week, and I can't begin to describe how thrilled I am that it's the weekend! Which, as far as weekends are concerned, it's a shame they're not longer than 2 days, no? Sigh.

Just some randomness that's on my mind today....

I simply can not get enough of this stuff. We went a solid 2 weeks without hand soap at our kitchen sink (mostly because I was too lazy to go out and buy any). I think the husband enjoys it just as much as I do, as he came to bed last night with fresh, basil smelling hands. When I remarked at just how awesome this soap was, he asked what took me so long to buy some because (in his words), what was he supposed to do in the meantime, use dish soap? "I mean, I'd have to bend down and get it from under the sink!"  I'm not sure what's more excited I am about this hand soap, or how lazy the husband is. I wasn't joking when I said we lead some exciting lives here!

Domino's Quick Fixes recently hit newstands, and I must, I'm not impressed. I was that crazy fool that tossed all my old issues before it went defunct (sad, so sad), so I was initially excited to get my little mits on this. I heard mixed reviews that this issue was more hype than anything (and apparently contained a ton of old images from past issues...clearly not something I had a problem with, since I no longer had anything to reference!). But after flipping through it during a recent visit to B&N, I decided it just wasn't worth the $10.99 price tag. I know, feel free to release the hounds on me for shooting it down. But I'm curious what other folks are saying....


I'm digging this stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils. Michelle over at 4 Men, 1 Lady shares her step by step process for those of us (me) who are a bit intimidated by the time consuming thought of stenciling. It seems easy enough! And Cutting Edge's website boasts that stenciling is Easy....Fast....Fun! And surely they can't be wrong, right? Maybe there is hope for people like me!  


This is what my office looked like earlier this week...a new computer that's totally out of place, paperwork strewn about (in short, one big hot mess). I'm happy to report that I've since regrouped, reorganized, and tossed a whole lotta crap that I just didn't need. It's the best feeling, isn't it?  Ever since, I've had this urge to do the same at home. On the surface our home appears to be organized, but I can vouch for every junk drawer, cabinet and closet to say that it ain't so pretty inside! The girl who used to have a system and home for everything has suddenly failed. Big time. So I'm going to try. We'll see how far my ambition takes me this weekend....

So over and out...that concludes today's randomness. Happy weekending!
