Lovely Little Things: On The Bachelorette and Being Tired...

This last week has been crazy... in a fun and funny yet sad, busy, sleep deprived way. It all started when two of my favorite girlfriends, Lisa and Anne, invited me over on Sunday night to watch The Bachelorette finale with them. You should know two things about me... 1) I don't watch The Bachelorette or any other show with the word "bachelor" it. 2) I relentlessly make fun of such shows {gasp... how do I even consider myself a blogger???}. However, due to many of you who watch such shows and tweet about them and a sister who watches The Bachelorette religiously with her Young Life girls, I always kind of know what is going on each season. So when Lisa and Anne wanted me to come over and watch the show and eat homemade muddy buddies/puppy chow {must be bilingual for all my readers here...} I couldn't resist. They informed me, if I came over, I had to take the show "seriously." I laughed at that suggestion... and then I came over anyway.

Best decision ever.

That show is comedy. And about halfway through the {THREE HOUR!} ep, I started following the Twitter hashtag for the show and that made it even more funny. Hahahaha. Seriously. How do you guys watch a whole season? I would get so skinny from laughing... except for the fact that I compensated for it by eating THREE mugs full of muddy buddies...

It was such a fun night with some amazing ladies, but I didn't get home until after midnight... which is late for this old married woman. And I don't think I've slept even six hours a night since. See, the sad part of my busy week is that both Anne and Lisa are moving away in the next few weeks. I'll probably write some sappy post about it later, but for now it is all about savoring the time! Happy hour, helping with packing, babysitting, even stooping so low as to watch The Bachelorette just to cherish every last minute with them. Between trying to hang out with them as much as possible, some big changes happening in our church {another sappy post for another time}, trying to gear up for school starting in a few weeks {eek!}, and getting ready to be out of town for two weeks, I am tired. In a good way.

And that is all for now. Here are some pictures of me being crazy, fun, busy, and tired...

Hello muddy buddies and the best {worst} TV show ever. 
Hello to another gorgeous bracelet from my girl, Jenna!

Hello to crazy days of trying to run errands, work on school stuff, and make it the gym.
These are the days I need to be reminded that God's grace is sufficient.

Hello the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made. I ate them for breakfast two mornings in a row...oops
Hello to my newly remodeled office. I am not very excited to go back to you next month, but I am excited that you have new carpet and paint to make it a little more bearable.

Goodbye Mr. Basil 3.0. My career as a basil farmer is over. I have officially killed three plants in the past year...
Goodbye clothes. I did a major overhaul of my closet this weekend and I'm getting rid of SO many clothes. Would anyone be interested in a "shop my closet" sale on the blog?

Hello Anne. Thank you for teaching me how you package the products from your amazing Etsy shop.
Hello Summer Olympics. I am glad you are here. I really can't wait for women's gymnastics!

    I love to watch the Bachelor/ette just to make fun of them. My husband and I laugh so stinking hard and sometimes we mute it and create our own little conversation based on what we see. It's SO fun.

    Cookie = yum + *cute* picture.
    Cake = amazing.
    Bible Study = powerful. AMEN!
