Peace Out, Debbie Downer

I've been feeling rather out of sorts this week. It's been a stressful one, for sure. Good 'ole Aunt Dot stopped by for her monthly visit. Hubby and I have been getting on each others nerves. Work has been... well, worky. I've had issues getting my taxes filed (never, ever, again will I do them myself... ever), and as such my hope of finally acquiring a car has been pushed back once again as a result.

So, after spending much of the week pouting and being in a horrid mood, I've decided to stop being a Debbie Downer. Life happens, ya know? Time to move on. Besides, The next few days are guaranteed to be fab.

For starters, tomorrow is Friday, and I love me some Fridays!

Saturday I'll be hosting a Pride & Prejudice and Chinese food party at the apartment with some good friends from college.

It will be pretty low key, as far as food is concerned since the Chinese take out is a must. My friend Amy will be bringing goodies from Panera Bread. I'll be providing some homemade biscuits and lemon curd, and since I have a dip set that I've been dying to use, there will be some kind of dip and an instrument for dipping. Haven't quite decided on that yet.

And tea. There will be lots of tea. You can't watch P&P without tea!

Next week, I will be working for just 2 days, and then it's off to the Buckeye State until Saturday to hang out with these adorable little gals (aka my nieces):

Aren't they cute??

And this slightly older, yet still adorable gal ;) (aka my sister):

I am super excited to see them :)

Another thing to be super excited about? {Not Quite} Susie has awarded me with the Kreativ Blogger award! Thanks a bunch, {Not Quite} Susie!

I'm going to do things a lil differently and pass this award on to a few blogs that I've really been enjoying lately and tell you why I love them:

First of all? Kara @ Lil Miss Wisecracker! Not only is she a good friend, but she just re-did her entire blog and it is simply gorgeous. She is a great writer with a hilarious point of view and an absolutely fabulous photographer.

Next - Apple Wrangler @ Miss Wrangler and the Koala because I adore her fun, vintage-y style and her love of the thrift store. Plus, her son is just completely precious!

And thirdly - Cassandra @ Cassagram. I loved her blog as soon as I saw that she described herself as a "fairy godmother" and a "hippie". Her blog is super fun, and she has a great sense of humor.

So there you go. Go check them out when you have a chance. They're all swell :)

Have a good night, and happy *almost* Friday!!
