yay for the weekends!

i saw this on another blog (thanks alyssa!) and LOVED it...because i love random things...

random ten friday.

* i'm thinking of starting another blog...specifically to do while i'm studying for the LEED exam. i think it will help me retain more information. AND if i make myself post every day, i will be forced to actually study a little bit every! i would just post a random fact up here everyday, but probably no one would be all that interesting to know. it's some pretty dry reading.

* i'm at the lake with my parents for the weekend! i haven't been here since the fourth, so i'm SO ready for an exciting weekend away from wichita!

* kyle found out this week he has to stay overseas longer than expected...BOOOO on caterpillar. i'm not liking them so much right now.

* i'm eating my mom's homemade salsa and chips right now [well, the chips are tostitos, but the salsa is homemade!] YUMMMM. i'm also craving some of her pickled green tomatoes, but i don't think she brought any. [i know, sounds gross, but they. are. to. die. for.]

* nelson loves tortilla chips, so really only about half of them make it into my mouth, because he's just so cute when he begs. :)

* i've decided to start biking to work when it's nice out. i already carpool with my friend julie, so i'm going to see if she wants to join me.

* for lunch today, the ID girls all went to Sugar Sisters. OMG, amazing food! i'm already planning a return trip for next week with some other people that work near me!

* today was our intern, monica's, last day at work. i'm gonna miss her face. :) but, i'll probably see her when i'm in manhattan for FB games and such, anyway!

* i'm worried about what i'm going to watch on tv when the olympics are over...i'm not much of a tv fan, but the olympics have me hooked! maybe i'll get back to that reading thing again....

* how is it that i'm only in my house for about 10 hours a day, and yet it still manages to become a complete mess? i haven't even been cooking lately and it's disgusting. i really MUST clean it before kyle gets back!
ECO-FRIENDLY TIP OF THE DAY: did you know that you can make your own cleaning supplies and that they are much more earth friendly AND TONS CHEAPER!? i saw this on PBS and thought i should try it [mainly because i'm cheap] but all the ingredients are also natural and safe to use! visit this site for a great recipe [the one on PBS added lemon juice for smell.]


  1. You biking to work made me think of The Office episode where Jim does that and is a sweaty mess when he gets there, then tries to bike home drunk and ends up in the bushes.....crack me up!! But that's awesome that you bike to work! Seriously rad.

    I love the random friday thing. Got it from a friend, too.

    You're right - pickled green tomatoes don't sound that appetizing. But I'll take your word for it.

    Sorry Kyle's going to be gone for longer. BOO.

    I forgot that you changed your template - I love it.

  2. Thanks for the comment! It has been so great finding Alyssa and your blogs. I told Alyssa it's funny how much you find out about someone through a blog. I didn't know you and Alyssa well in high school but it has been great getting to know you guys through the blogs!


thanks so much for taking the time to comment. trust me, you just made my day!
