Happy Weekend

HAPPY WEEKEND: CATCHING UP

Sooo… this week has been “one of those weeks” that didn’t go quite as planned. Long story short, I’ve been having massive back spasms for a few weeks and finally ended up in the emergency room as soon as I got back from LA. Btw, we had to wait in the waiting room for NINE hours! Yes. I know.Β Thankfully, my ultra-awesome primary care doctor gave me some meds that seem to do the trick and we’re now (finally) on the road back to normal – whatever “normal” is.

As for our plans this weekend, we’re going to be playing a bit of catch up. We have a few projects around the house to brainstorm, paint colors to pick out (more on that later!), lots of emails to answer, calendars to update and the guest room closet is in dire need of some attention (in other words. it’s been our “catch all closet” for the past few months).

Oh yeah! My trip to California was great, and I realized how much I really needed to turn my brain off for two weeks – or half off anyway, haha. I thought about doing a quick recap post, but really you can just go to Instagram and catch the gist of what I saw/did/ate. As for celebs (I always get asked who I saw during LA trips, haha), I saw Jim Parsons (driving to the Big Bang set on the Warner Brothers lot), Chuck Lorre (walking around the Warner Brothers lot), Anna Kendrick (taking a walk in her neighborhood) and Lucy Hale (again, while on the Warner Brothers lot), Jerry BruckheimerΒ (walking on the street in Beverly Hills), Jordan Bratman aka “the guy that was married to Christina Aguilera” (driving through Beverly Hills),Β Elisabetta Canalis aka “the gorgeous girl who dated George Clooney” (near Sprinkles in Beverly Hills) and a guy at Trader Joe’s whose name I can’t remember to save my life. People were coming up to him and giving him the “knowing look”, but I can’t place him. And it bugged me. A lot. I think there were a few more, but I can’t remember… which is now going to keep me up tonight, haha.

So, how about you guys? Any big plans for the weekend? Have a hot date at the paint store like we do?

    9 hours?!?!? Ouch!

    Good luck with your projects. I’m trying to tie up random loose ends, photograph them and hopefully get posts ready….while also entertaining my 4 year old, laundry, dishes, cleaning and cooking. I did, however, find some cute frames for her new gallery wall and two of the three are already hung up. Better yet, one even has a picture in it! I call that success!

    There is no way I could have sat there with sick people for nine hours. Hopefully you had your iPads or something with you. HAHA! Have a good weekend you two!

      Actually, my phone died after we were there for about an hour. Greg and I tried to make the best of it by quizzing each other on random trivia and watching infomercials on the waiting room TV. Making memories, haha.

      I’m a big Anna Kendrick fan too. I loved her voice in Pitch Perfect! Luckily her next movie is going to be a musical, woo hoo!
