The Weekend Recap

How was your weekend? I worked on Friday night, so mine just flew by! I was so happy to be done with the craziness that was last week. I had a program start at work, another one to work Friday night and a speech to give to an important group of people on Thursday afternoon. Public speaking and I don't get along. I did fine though and in the end, preparing better notes and rehearsing in front of Craig countless times got me through the talk with no problems and just a bit of uneasiness in my voice in the beginning.

On Saturday, I did some reading and really cleaned the house in areas I hadn't touched before vacation. It felt good to get it sparkling again.

We ventured out to the mall to look for shoes for Craig and I was on the hunt for a wallet. My coin section is messed up and finding a new one has proven to be quite difficult. Sometimes I really despise shopping when I can't find what I want.

I went to a different mall on Sunday on my way to meet my mom at Costco. I had a lovely lunch at Panera--a Mediterranean veggie sandwich with black bean soup and an apple.

Our plants are growing so well this summer. We even have a little baby pepper growing!

Craig and I did some grocery shopping on Saturday night and saw these wonderful signs throughout the store, but mostly concentrated in the produce section.

We still continue to look intermittently for two kittens who are brothers, male, and about 9 weeks old. They all just get me excited with their adorable faces and colors. I especially loved this guy, Mikey, who was waving to the camera! I kind of stalk the various Wisconsin Humane Society sites now, hoping a perfect pair pops up soon so Tanzi can be a big brother again and have some company.

I tried out a new product (sort of) on Sunday. Thanks to a word-of-mouth marketing program I am in called BzzAgent, I received Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel insoles for free. Unfortunately, the design didn't work well with these particular shoes that I wore yesterday, so I removed them before I left the house. I will try them out with another pair of heels later in the week. They felt great, but hit my arch in the wrong spot, I suspect because these heels were so skinny on the bottom.

Do you fear public speaking as much as I do? I am so glad to be done with that experience and I really think it is great practice, but I hope I don't have to public speak for a long time.


  1. I never had black bean soup but it sounds kinda good, I think I'd like it. And I bet you have your hands full with all those kittens :-) Have a great weekend!

  2. I can't wait to meet your new kittens, I hope you find the perfect pair in before I leave for Florida :) I'm anxious to see if I have any little peppers growing in my garden when I return after being away for a week.
