Brand New Day

I'm writing this post around 11 am on Monday from Panera. It's my first day of working from home but the house is being cleaned so I vacated the premises. Later today I have a meeting so I'm not sure how much work will actually be done "from home." And I guess none is really being done right this minute either since I'm writing a blog post. Hmmmmm....

Here are a few tidbits from the long weekend:

Friday I got a new 'do for the new chapter in my life. I don't have any great pictures of it but here goes:

Ugh. Terrible picture quality. 

Saturday we went to the Ohio State game. Let me be clear: I am and always will be a Penn State fan first, but a) I live in Columbus; b) I'm married to a Buckeye fan; c) I love college football and if I have the chance to go to any game, I'm going and I'll embrace it.

First, some pre-game beers with friends:

O-H-I-O with our (empty) tube of beer

Script Ohio right as the sousaphone player is dotting the I

Saturday was a great college football day for our house because the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions both won, as did Clemson (someday I'll tell you about our weird affinity for Clemson).

Sunday I sat on the porch and read all morning. It was glorious. Then we went to this cutie's 2nd birthday party:

Monday I cleaned off my desk at home. I can't believe I'm doing this, but here are before and after pictures:

We did a little shopping and chores around the house, then rounded out the weekend by eating BLTs with our neighbors. Aaron wants to know, is there a more "American" sandwich than the BLT?

I even showed some love to the Reds, because they beat the Cardinals (and the Pirates won). Pittsburgh only needs one more win to break their 20 year streak of losing seasons!

It's quite understated, but there ARE rhinestones!

I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend!


  1. I'm rooting for the Pirates. The Phillies are freaking terrible this year.

    Still too hot for college football! Fall weather, commence.

  3. I absolutely love working from home and I think you will too. I love being able to work on my own things in my down time without any guilt.

  4. O-H!!! :) Your new hair looks great, makes me want to chop mine!

  5. Oh my pretty red headed friend, the new 'do looks fab!
