Monday, April 16, 2012


I am so excited Monday is over.  It was one of those days!  It was a great day at work but very busy with a quiet rumbling of chaos.  Have you ever had one of those days?  I work in a corporate professional environment where things must always remain calm, collected, and smooth.  It's really hard to do that when my head is spinning, because we may have over-committed ourselves today!  Live and learn!  It's all trial by fire sapphire.  (Oh, it was too easy.)  After spending a day with my inner-chicken-with-its-head-cut-off, it was nice to go out to dinner with Mr. TBS.  Ahhhhh!  Much better.

Luckily, I had a really low-key weekend.  Remember how I said sleeping in too late felt like half the day was wasted?  Well, I slept in until 10:00am on Sunday.  That will teach me to say such things on my blog after going to bed at 1:00am all week.  Other than hibernating this weekend, I also Skyped with my sister who recently had surgery on her wrist for tendonitis... and then got hit by a biker just as she was starting a 10-mile run and fractured the other arm.  2012 has not been her year so far, BUT I have this theory that she was allotted a certain amount of crap, and she has hit her quota.  DONE.  Moving on up (after both arms heal)!  My only solution at the time was to engage my best little sister artistry in the form of teasing my hair and making silly faces.  It worked.

Mr. TBS and I made a trip to see the cows Saturday evening.  I wish I had cool pictures to show, but they were so far from the fence.  I was so disappointed!  "They're always here at 5:45pm.  Why are they way over there?!  They're always at the fence for that old man and those cute little girls!"  They were there on Friday.  They were there on Sunday.  But not Saturday.  But be warned, cows!  I will be back to visit you, and you will like it.

A few other notes:
1) I finally watched Bridesmaids!  Loved it!
2) I need to reinstate bedtime, because I'm not doing so well with "winging it".  Am I the only adult who needs a bedtime to stay on schedule?
3) TBS will have a new look soon!  'Tis the season, as so many of my favorite bloggers are getting custom designs (or have recently)!

Okay.  Time to breathe.  Time to watch Smash.  Time for bed.

You look great, Linz! I love your bike. I wish you were back in San Diego so the whole fam can ride together! We love you!!

Emily @ Emmy June said...

I love Bridesmaids :) So good!

Glad you made it through your crazy Monday and got to have a nice dinner with the hubs.

I sooooo need a "grown up" bedtime. I'm a night owl, and tend to go to bed after 12M- even when I have to be at work at 6:30 in the morning. A proper bedtime is my new goal, since lately my coverup has been struggling under my eyes... good luck to you on this- we need to make some sort of bedtime-accountability pact!!

Angie said...

I'm REALLY glad Monday is over too!!! Hope you have a slower paced week :)

Allie @ Between Dreams said...

I absoutely love your bike basket! It is adorable.
I just have a plain old black wire one... not nearly as exciting. :)

P.S. Oh my goodness, your poor sister :( I totally agree that she has hit her quota.

Emily said...

This is nothing more refreshing than a new blog design. And AMEN - Monday is OVER.

so happy it's tuesday. and i totally need a bedtime. especially now with the whole blogging thing. i could look at blogs all night long. it's dangerous.

Meg O. said...

Love your bike - you look so cute!! And yay for a new design. Wish I could have helped you with that but I am currently not designing :(

Shannon @ Bungalow960 said...

I need to reinstate bedtime as well... before I know it, it's well after midnight and I have to be up at 6! Love your bike :)

Unknown said...

love the bike. i really want one!

Ellie said...

I need a bedtime but I end up winging it. However, as I continue to keep my discipline going of getting up at 5 and not 6 in the mornings, my body is setting its own bedtime, whether I like it or not. No snooze alarm allowed!!

Jess said...

I love you and your bike :)

And obviously you're not alone on needing an adult bedtime...oops! My body probably hates me...but that's okay.

and I hope your Tuesday is a little more chill than your Monday was!


Alexis @ ChristianWifeStyle said...

Can't wait to see the new design! Glad you had a relaxing weekend, those are the best! :)

Bev said...

Amen to Monday (not so) FUNday being checked off this week right?! Sounds like you had an amazing weekend though, and that's definitely a PLUS!!

I get so wrapped up with life, work, and school that having a sleeping schedule is absolutely mandatory for us! The problem I have with my "sleeping schedule" is actually abiding by it! I finish working so late, I want to stay up and watch the episode I missed... or the movie I've been waiting for all week long on Lifetime! BUT... I know you'll do just fine... you're disciplined! ;)

Michelle said...

Oh Mondays, will they ever learn?? Hope today has been MUCH better!

Bridesmaids!!! That is the funniest movie! I need to watch it again asap.

I'm right there with you on the bedtime. Hence the energy drink currently sitting next to the keyboard as I type this.

Lisa @ MMT said...

Aw, hope you sis has better luck for the rest of the year!

Those darn cows! However, your photo looks adorable with or without them.

You just reminded me that I need to watch Bridesmaids!

Unknown said...

I definitely need to instill a bedtime upon myself! I figure that's for after college ;)

Looking forward to your new look! Are you doing it yourself?

Leanne said...

I'm glad you said you like Smash! It is one of my all time favorites right now. I haven't heard that many people talk about it, so it's nice to see a blogging friend say something! But, since you're a music kind of gal, it doesn't surprise me too much :)

Have a lovely day!
