Week Recap and GTKY Sunday!

I've been a bad and slacker blogger this week.  So, let's do a quick recap of the highlights.

Thursday was my dad's birthday.  My whole family got together to celebrate.

We had a great time.  I also got my brother an incredible deal on plane tickets to NYC for July 4.  My secret?  Buy two one way tickets instead of a round trip ticket.  By flying out of a different airport than he went in, I saved him $300.  What a great sister am I?

I also got contacts for the first time.  Apparently my eyes have deteriorated to the point that I have to wear corrective lenses daily.  What fun.  I've been spending about 15 minutes every morning and night trying to put in and take out my contacts.  So, my eyes are a little confused and going crazy.

Friday, I had a super important meeting that I thought went well, but I won't know anything for a while.  To celebrate (maybe?), Emily and April went with me to play tennis.  Then, we decided to watch The Little Mermaid, which I havent seen in at least ten years.  Still such a cute movie.  The music is great, and I love Sebastian!

Check out these delicious treats that Emily made.  They're not just your everyday rice krispie treat-- the marshmallows are coconut flavored!  Sooooo delicious!!

And, today of course is Father's Day.  I'm hanging with my dad today watching the race at Infineon, US Open (go Tiger!), and the World Cup.  All in all, a pretty fantastic Sunday.  Oh, and I made him these wonderful treats from Annie's Eats.

You all know what Sunday means-- it's Getting to Know You time!  (check it out at

1.  While at the beach, pool, etc... Do you cover up your assets or show them off?  Definitely cover them up if I'm up walking around.  But sitting on a chair trying to soak up some sun requires.... less covering.

2.  Road trips or plane trips?  Plane trips, definitely.  I'm not a girl who can ride in a car for hours and hours on end.  Six hours is about my limit-- which will get me as far as DC or Atlanta.  Anything more than that requires a plane.

3.  I can't stand it when...?  People interrupt me when I'm talking.  I try really hard not to do it (even though I fail often) to other people.

4.  Have you ever gone topless at the beach?  Absolutely not.

5.  How many blog carnivals do you do a week?  Two or three at the most.  I try and keep a cap on it.

6.  My favorite thing about the weekend is...?  Time that is all mine to do with as I wish.

7.  Pancakes or waffles?  Waffles!  With blueberries, strawberries, peaches, or really any fruit.  Oh, and homemade whipped cream.  Yum!

8.  Water park or amusement park?  Water park.  If I'm going to be walking around in the heat for hours, I'm going to need some water to keep me cool.

  2. Oh man those rice krispy treats look yummy, especially the blue frosted one!

    It took me a full month getting used to putting my contacts in and taking them out! Then before you know it you can do it one handed in less than 20 seconds! I don't like having to wear them but it's better than being blind :)
