Absent much!?!? Oooppsie, sorry guys! I have been so on the go and just dealing with a lot of daily life stuff that I haven't had the chance to sit and blog. But I was starting to miss it and so here I am...

I had the chance to spend about two weeks with Calista down in H-town and we had a great time. I haven't laughed so hard, cooked so much yummy food, hung out, shadowed someone at work daily, had a running partner, and even just sitting in silence was enjoyable. I had to soak it all up because soon I will be joining the corporate world again and back to the 8-5p grind. I am definitely looking forward to it but I must get re acclimated to the schedule.

On my way back from Houston there was a tractor trailer truck that was two cars in front of me and his entire wheel came off and barely missed my car and when I passed him a crap ton of brake fluid sprayed all over my car, so after a good run this morning and some errands I hand washed the car in the driveway. It was a workout for sure but I have definitely missed washing my car by myself. Such a feeling of accomplishment.

I guess I have one more weekend to enjoy before I become a weekend warrior again... here's some photos of this past week/end...

Calista hosted a Pampered Chef party and it was so much fun and of course she had a craft for all us girls to do...Painting wine glasses is super fun and a great party gift!

 The weather was great this past weekend...Definitely feeling like fall is starting to sneak in...My all time fave season!

Calista is one party planner and adventurous cook. Friday friends came over and we did ribs and potatoes on the grill and some ranch style beans.

Scribs!!! So tender and yummy...bake first then grill
 I'm envious of her Keurig machine and she was sweet enough to make me some pumpkin spice latte.
Perfect start to the fall

All in all a great weekend and ready for one last more before the real world swallows me up whole. What's on your schedule for the weekend!? 

Cheers, Nelly
