Finally Friday

This week has been a little crazy, but work has dragged everyday! However, today both bosses are out of the office - woohoo! House hunting this week went well. We found one we really like and we're super excited about it. My mind has been racing all week thinking about paint, new carpet, grass, flowers etc. This house needs a little TLC and I can't wait!

My surgery is scheduled for July 16, lame. That's four weeks I have to wait and that means I can't run until the middle of August. And that gives me a month and a half before the half marathon - not sure about that. I'm pretty bummed. And even more bummed to wake up this morning and realize that the cyst has gone down to a tangerine size. That would be fine except that I still have to wait 4 more weeks and who knows what will happen by then.

Last night we went out for a friend Katie's birthday. We went to a little place in downtown Acworth called Henry's. It's a cajun place and it was oh so delicious. I had Shrimp and Grits. Just the right amount of cheese and spicyness. I had the rest for breakfast this morning. Torie will hate me for posting this picture and really it's not good of me either, but oh well. The birthday girl is on the end in green!

This weekend I plan on doing some cooking, specifically I'm going to make Focaccia Bread. Elizabeth ( gave me the recipe and I'm super excited to give it a try. She's a fabulous cook and also taught me how to make eggplant parmesan when her and her husband came to visit recently. (Thanks Elizabeth!!) Other than cooking we are going to the drive-in movies tomorrow night with some friends - $7 for a double feature can't beat that! There will also be some pool time since it will be scorching hot :)

Tonight I'm trying out a new recipe: Soba Noodle Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette
Looks yummy to me!


  1. Oh, you.
    Sure do know how to flatter a girl. ;)
    It stinks you can't run till August.
    I think you still might be fine for the half, though.
    I'll be praying for you!
    Tell Mike we loooooove him!

  2. I do what I can :)
    Will do! Love y'all too :)

  3. I went there for my 16th birthday!! It was yummy :) Sorry you have to wait so long for the surgery that stinks. Dinner sounds great Michael got lucky!
