Good day my blogger friends and of course my none blogger friends. The week is over and the weekend has begun. THANK GOD! Can you hear me, because I said it out loud. One more time, Thank God.

So, I spent two days photographing jewelry this week. I know, I know, I am a people photographer and landscape at times, BUT a friend of mine is making jewelry and asked for my help. So, 300 pieces later and about 600 shots, I am done with that chore. She is going to have it all up on Etsy pretty soon, so this is step two of her big project. lol

I also made my invitations for my Valentine Day Fondue party with three of my closest friends and their husbands. Let me go take a quick picture and put it up here .. BRB!

I am pretty happy with the way they turned out.  I will post pictures of this great event!  We will be in Michigan for our annual ski/snowboarding trip on Valentine's Day, so this will be perfect.  I will also post the girly gifts in the next few days!  I know, I know, it's the guys job, but I adore my girlfriends!  So, off I go to finish watching the Contessa!  Have a great weekend friends!

I know it ...

Good Lord!  I am just running on fumes and for no apparent reason.  Okay, a few reasons, but nothing you can take care of in a few days. 

Things my Mom didn't tell me, but maybe I observed without knowing it, truly knowing it.  
These are my top five for today, feel free to add and amen me sister!

1.  Scattered Brainedness - where does it come from ... I mean I use to be have it all together and complete a million tasks in a million seconds, now it takes me a million hours to complete things or better yet, noncompletion.  Ughhh

2.  Hairs ... enough said.

3.  Fear - where does that come from?  I use to be fearless.  I could ride any roller coaster in the world.  I could drive FAST, I mean really fast!  I worry when Vandy isn't home from work at 6.  I worry when they go snowboarding without me, even if it is only Mad River Mountain.  NOW, now I panic when Addie isn't in by whatever time her curfew is.  WAIT, I remember my Mom chewing me a new hide when I was only a few minutes past my curfew.  Hmmm a connection perhaps. 

4.  Bathing - my skin can't take it, what is up with that?  AND AND I use to put lotion on and my skin would glow, simply radiant, but now, it's like I have be cursed with aligator hide, rough and non absobent and UGHHH.

5.  Pack Ratting - I mean really.  Throw it away for Pete's sake.  Who is Pete by the way?  And don't you wonder what his sake is?  (oops, refer to #1)  So, why do we hang on to JUNK?  Not the kind of junk you can do things with, I mean real junk, well like, like, umm, hmmmm, well I can't think of anything I don't NEED or might be able to use right this minute, but I have it and it is takign up 1000 square feet in my basement and nooks and crannies in every available spot in the other 2000 square feet.
