Thoughts to Kick Off the Week


  • I had to wear a jacket this morning to take the dogs out. Made me realize just how happy I was to have fall knocking at the door
  • Found out this morning that Shaun Draughn will be able to play this Saturday against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Go Heels!
  • Even without Jake Delhomme, the Panthers are still not good.
  • I've decided to get some lowlights put in my hair. I want something a little different for fall.
  • I had a personal yard sale triumph this past Saturday: I found a very unique Louis Vuitton canvas bag with leather straps...price paid: $4! Love it!
  • AND I got an incredibly cute duffel bag from a store in Clemmons called Hip Chics Boutique
the LV bag and my new duffel bag
  • I started planning a mother/daughter mountain day trip for October. It'll be nice to go breath in the fresh mountain air, see the leaves and attend the Woolly Worm Festival in Banner Elk.

  • It is taking much of my strength to not light all of my fall scented candles in my house or plug in my wallflower from Bath & Body Works
  • I'm taking my first Zumba class tonight. Kinda terrified since I possess no rhythm whatsoever, but I've heard good thing.
  • My hubby came home yesterday after 4 long days in Richmond for work. Have I mentioned, I don't like NASCAR?
  • I have my meeting with Raycom this Wednesday. It could be nothing, or as a good friend said, it could be life changing. No pressure right?
  • The 3rd season of Big Bang Theory comes out tomorrow and Andrew & I are probably a little bit too excited. 

  • There are currently 3 CD release dates on my Google calendar: Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift & Rascal Flatts
  • I finished South of Broad by Pat Conroy last week and now I need suggestions. 

  • Also, we're in search of a good chili recipe for this fall. Let me know if you have one.
Surprisingly enough, I have many more thoughts skipping through my head, but I'll leave it at this. Any random thoughts making their way through your brain today?

2 i love your comments!:
