happy friday, happy 11/11/11, and most importantly, happy veteran’s day. (with a newly appointed marine in the family — my brother — plus what would have been my army-general grandfather’s birthday just two days away, veteran’s day has even more meaning than usual for me this year. i may not agree with the war, but i am beyond thankful for those who risk their lives on our behalves. thank you.)
so, yes, there’s a lot going on today, but it’s been a busy week, too: i’ve had after-work events every night, and tomorrow we’re celebrating my friend steph‘s birthday with game night at her house. game night is one of my favorite friend traditions because we all inevitably end up laughing so hard we cry; plus, when you add adult beverages to the mix, you’re guaranteed some pretty funny — and quotable — conversations. i’m really looking forward to it.
i’m also looking forward to cleaning out my closet (my house is sparkling clean, the closet is really the last piece that needs to be dealt with), sleeping in and enjoying what’s supposed to be absolutely gorgeous fall weather. i really need to get to the gym or get back to the jogging this weekend, too — all this cocktail-party food can’t be the best for the bod, so that’s on the agenda as well. it should be a good, fun, productive weekend.
what are your plans? tell me, and i’ll see you back here on monday. have a wonderful, wonderful weekend!
