Favorite Things Friday

Howdy, Friends!! 


So... I'm thinking that this is going to be a pretty short post. Mostly because I'm behind on some design work, dead tired, hungry, and grumpy. So... yes, it will be short and sweet.

Favorite Things Friday: Recent Events Edition

1. The home inspection went well! There are really only a few minor things that need fixing. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS?!?! In about a month, I will finally have my own space again for the first time in a looonnngggg time. And for the first time ever if we're talking about actually owning a home. So happy.
2. I have a second interview. I guess today's interview went well because I'm meeting with the VP of the department in a week and a half or so. I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high, because I don't want to be disappointed if something doesn't work out.

3. Seeing one of my besties and former roomies for the first time in more than a year. I was a dumb-face and didn't get a pic of us together, but here's an oldie but goodie.
4. Learning more about couponing from my SIL. It sounds dorky, but I am so stoked to be learning more ways to save money!!

5. Having the BEST blog readers ever. Seriously, you guys - I cannot thank you enough for all of the support and love you give me. I never would have guessed when I started blogging about 9-10 months ago that I would love the community this much. I'm so grateful to have met all of you - you've made the bad days more bearable and the good days and events even better. I love you all.
Now I'm done being a sap. 

And... I decided to do a Q&A vlog session where I answer your ridiculous questions. They don't have to be ridiculous, but ridiculous is fun. So... if you have a silly question, or something that you've just been dying to know, leave it in the comments section (if you wanna ask anonymously, just make yourself anon in the comments section). If you don't want to watch a vlog... don't leave a question.

But... I like looking like an idiot on camera for you guys, so ask away. :)

Linking this post up with the beautiful Ashley

hanging out with old roommates is the best :)

and lets see - if you could go on one dream vacation - where would it be? who would it be with? and how long would you be there? what would you do?

oh and if you had an unlimited gift card to one restaurant for the rest of your life - what would you choose?

How long did it take you to master the duck lips? Why did you go across the big pond? What's the first thing you want to change about your new house? What time of day do you generally eat cereal?

I wonder...what would *you* do for a klondike bar? Do you even like klondike bars?? ...I just had a thought, and I think you'd appreciate....they should make a klondike bar with nuttella under the chocolate shell and peanut butter ice cream.

Sorry, pregnant woman here with a major chocolate craving.

So a fun question.... hmmmm. I will stick to our staple question for our friends who attend our craft nights....

How do you bring sexy back?

I have researched couponing but then I get very confused and give up!! Tell us the basics in your vlog.

Kym said...

Oh, it looks like everything's coming up Milhouse for you guys!! (If that sounded crazy, then you may not be as ridiculous of a Simpson's fan as I am).
What I'm trying to say is CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!! I'm so stoked for you guys and it sounds like you really lucked out with this house - your lowball (ha!) offer got accepted and no major repairs. I'm really thrilled for you. :)))))
I can't wait to see some photos of it!
