Friday Things

22 Jun

1. I feel like I have so much to share with you guys, and not enough time in the day to write my thoughts down! I think I might start preparing posts on the weekends so they’re ready to go during the week. Is that the secret to bloggers who write multiple times a day? If not, I’m convinced that they must live in a special world with 26 hour days.

2. My bachelorette party is this weekend! We will be getting crazy at a paint-your-own pottery place ;), going out to dinner, and drinking fruity drinks. My cousin is coming into town from Michigan for the party, and I’m excited to catch up with her!

3. I just received an email from my boss asking me if I’d like to take off the whole week of my wedding rather than only taking off the Thursday and Friday before. Yes, please! As the wedding gets closer, I’m realizing how many little things that I still need to do, and I want a couple of days to relax and take it all in too. I really haven’t had time to let it all sink in yet!

4. Rupert’s daughter goes to my camp. Last Monday, he dropped her off in the morning, and it caught me off-guard — usually her mom brings her. I don’t watch ‘Survivor’ anymore, but I did watch during the season that he won — so I’ll admit, I was jumping up and down a little bit (inside my head) when I saw him. If you don’t know who he is, just ignore this thought and move on ;).


5. Speaking of kids at camp, all of them have such interesting, diverse backgrounds. One girl in particular is originally from Japan. Everyday, I look forward to checking out her food at lunch, because everything looks so darn good! She eats with chopsticks, and the other kids (and me) think that it’s so cool. Seeing all of her food makes me crave Japanese food, so naturally, Jordan and I went out for sushi last night. Unfortunately, we had terrible service and some of our hot food was cold. I could say, “we won’t be going back there again,” but I know we will (we always do) — probably next week.

6. One week from Sunday, we will have the keys to our apartment. Three weeks Saturday, we will be getting married, and three weeks from Monday, we will be on a plane to Hawaii! Things are coming up so fast. I’m excited, but nervous too.

7. I’m still unsure about what I’ll be doing come August, but I have a good feeling that things will be okay. One thing’s for sure — I’m really going to miss these kids when I’m done with camp two weeks from now!

8. On Friday nights, I am content with being anti-social. I’ve had a tiring week, and all I want to do is eat dinner and go to bed early. For this reason, I am currently debating whether or not I should go out with Jordan’s family for dinner. Anyone else hate making conversation after a long day at work? I hope that it’s not just me…

Have a wonderful weekend!

    I am the same way on Friday nights! I usually head to bed a little earlier than during the work week because I’m so tired! I’m super jealous you got to {kind of} meet Rupert…he’s always been one of my favorites! Enjoy your Bachelorette Party! Mine was low key also and I had the BEST time! 🙂

    Have fun at your bachelorette party!! We had a “crazy” bachelorette party for me, too … it was a little get together at a friend’s house with appetizers, desserts, and some ‘adult’ punch! 🙂

    How exciting! You should try chopsticks sometime if you don’t already know how to use them — they’re pretty simple to use 🙂
    PS. Where in Hawaii are you going? My BF goes there for his grad program now but I’ve never been! I’m definitely planning on visiting in the next year or so.

      I’ve tried using chopsticks, but I’m left handed and just can’t seem to figure them out! We’re going to Maui.

    You’ll be so thankful to have the whole pre-wedding week off from work. There really is a lot to get done in those last few days and even when you won’t want to be a little extra stressed/excited/nervous/etc., you will be, so having extra time to take care of yourself will be important : )
    Hope you have a great time at your bachelorette party!!

    Haha! I love number 1…I mean seriously blogging 3 times a day. How? Do they know some secret in cutting the time it takes to blog in half? Because I would love to hear it! Can’t wait to see your party recap:)

    I’m excited to hear what you think about the paint your own pottery place. I think it sounds so much fun, but I can never get anyone to go with me! I’ve met Rupert a couple of times at events in Indianapolis and he’s always so nice! Although he’s running for a political position of some sort so that could be one reason why! You will love Hawaii. It’s amazing! Which apartments are you guys moving into? And I always enjoy staying in and isolating myself one night during the weekend. I need to de-stress! Hope you have fun at your bachelorette party!!

      Thank you! We are living in Legacy Park. I fell for the big closets and the washer and dryer :).

        I *think* that’s where Cyndi and Steven live. It’s the one halfway between Brownsburg and Avon right? If so, that’s where they live and they like it. They’re really nice apartments! Cyndi and Steven are actually moving into a two bedroom in July because they ran out of room in their one bedroom.

    I tend to be very anti-social on Fridays. The week tires me out.

    I will admit that yes- I do prep a lot of blog posts on the weekends or nights that I have no plans during the week. It makes it much easier to post multiple times a day when I can come home, plug in some pictures, and add a few details before it’s ready to go!
