Miscellany Monday

hello from sunny orlando, fl (going to meet up with Sonja from SoNg Designs this week, can’t wait)!  hope you all had a fantastic weekend!  mine was filled with laundry, crafting, sewing, cooking, eating, photographing, shopping for a baby shower i’m planning, packing and straight up lounging!  🙂  i’ve got a lot of randomness to share with you today so thanks to carissa, i’m linking up (and typing in all lowercase because sometimes it’s fun to do that):

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{1} can you believe it’s august already?  oh my.  that means summer is almost over, nooooo come back!!  well we all better enjoy it, before you know it, it’s snow and ice time.  🙁  i just downloaded this august desktop wallpaper calendar by pamela viola, kellie from 74 lime lane tweeted me and said she saw it on poppytalk, don’t you just love social media?

here’s another august calendar that following rabbits tweeted me with, found on free people.  i think i’ll switch out my calendars every other day, what do you think??  well it is my computer so i can do what i want!  😉

{2} why am i doing the insanity workout?  because my coworkers has these babies filled with milk chocolate m&m’s, peanut m&m’s, pretzel m&m’s, and peanut butter m&m’s… how could you resist?  i sure can’t!

{3} a new frozen yogurt place, yogurtini, opened up in kansas city this past weekend.  yes, we’re about 2-3 years behind on trends.  they had sriricha as one of the available toppings, i couldn’t resist – it wasn’t half bad!

{4} what could be better than a bar in a boutique shop??  *thinking thinking*  nope, can’t get much better than that!  it’s the perfect date really… girl shops, guy drinks, guy gets drunk, guy buys girl lots and lots of clothes and shoes!  🙂

{5} picked up this antique sewing table at a yard sale.  love that it has a spool holder and a tray of pins or other knick knacks.  do you think i should leave it as is or repaint it?  if so, what color?

{6} it’s the last day to enter the we heart paper custom stationery giveaway!  love animals?  enter here! love moustaches?  enter here!  don’t worry, if you don’t win, janie still has many more weekly giveaways this summer! 🙂

    Adorable sewing table! I’d probably paint it a matte lavender or something equally girly.

    that august computer background calender is TOO COOL! and the fact that its free people makes it even better. so stinking cute.
    and that fro yo looks DELICIOUS!!! YUM!

    Ahh so much goodness. I would paint the sewing table (but that’s cause I’m going through a redecorating stage)…colour wise I’m not sure. Cause I love pastel it would be in a pastel shade if it was mine 🙂
    That boutique is pretty cool. I’m sure hubby would like that while I shopped.

    Oooh, thanks for the reminder that I need a new calendar on my desktop — I can’t believe it’s August already either!! And I think the bar in the boutique is a smart idea — something like that keeps people there longer which may lead them to buy more. Hope you’re having a fantastic Monday down in Orlando and that it’s not too hot there!

    wow, you sure have a lot of great miscellany’s today! can’t believe you’re in orlando already. you are just all over the place. charlotte is the same way. 2-3 years behind in trends. yoforia just opened up 3 months ago and boy it’s always packed! funny, i was just online this morning checking out that insanity work out. no exactly sure if i can actually keep up with the pace but i’m sure if i stuck to it i would definitely see results! have a great monday my friend!

    I love that first desktop calendar! Gorgeous.. I know, it’s August already and we haven’t even gone on vacation yet! Oh well, I can’t complain as my coworkers aren’t even allowed to take theirs this year at all. Slave drivers.. Oh those M&M’s… I love your coworkers already! hahaha. Have a wonderful Monday…

    I love the august backgrounds! I really wish that we had one of the yogurt places around here (or if there is one, I need to find out where it is, stat!).

  9. August 2, 2010 / 9:51 am

    Love the August Background, and totally using it now!
