>I have to preface this by saying that – I do not enjoy most cold salads (excluding taco or green salads.) Most potato and pasta salads are not enjoyable to me either. Actually, let me clarify – it’s mainly anything that has Miracle Whip or Italian Dressing (from a bottle). I am not a fan of potlucks for this very reason. =)

You must read this post to understand this post. Thank you. 🙂
I set a goal at the beginning of the week to work out every day this week – Monday through Friday. The summer has been so busy that my consistent work-outs have fallen by the wayside. I’m so thrilled that I can say – I did it. Every night I packed my gym bag with my suit and towel and showed up to swim around 1pm the next day. I also started back on Xango. (Dad & Kim if you’re reading this – sorry!) Everyday this week I worked out and drank Xango. (If you want to know more about what Xango has done for me – ask. I do not sell it.)
As usual – I LOVED working on this project for my good friend Sarah. Her sister, Tracy, is having her first baby and Sarah is throwing her a baby shower. Sarah sent me a link to the baby’s bedding and said to keep with a garden theme. The bedding is adorable – so it was fun to try to compliment it and re-create it for these invitations. Tracy told Sarah that the pink stripe matches the pink stripe on the walls of the nursery! I had NO idea. So fun when something like that happens! I love when clients are happy with the final product – it brings me so much JOY! Thanks for yet another fun project, Sarah! 🙂
>My ten year high school reunion was about a month ago. It was so fun to reconnect with old friends. Brittany (far left) and I have maintained a friendship since high school, but Sarah (middle) and I reconnected a few years ago via myspace and facebook. It was so so so fun to actually see her and get to hug her and hear her sweet laugh again. I’ve missed her. We went to grade school through high school together and used to live on the same block. I was even able to meet her kids for the first time. Reconnecting with Sarah was definitely the highlight of my high school reunion.
