Defeat

It’s Friday!  Whoo Hoo!  And USUALLY that means it’s time for a “From Grandma with Love” outfit.  But this week, it’s been a challenge to get pictures done for my blog post.
Let’s see… I’ve been to Dallas TWO days in a row for adoption interviews {YAY and YAY}, skyped with my best friend in China {got a tour of her new place – gotta love technology}, did a quick run through Forty Five Ten with a gal pal {a gals gotta do what a gals gotta do when she’s in Dallas – 75% off this blue hat and Kelly Wearstler bangle – we are twinning}, phone stalked one of my oldest friends {hello I HAD to discuss EVERY SINGLE DETAIL of the interview}, improptu met with this friend {you’ll be seeing more of Mary soon}, had our attic decked, worked a little, volunteered a bit, and did NOT get a toilet fixed {rescheduled the plumber so I could go to the second interview}!
I had the camera, remote, and tripod in the car with me everywhere.  I kept thinking… maybe after the interview, on the way back to Fort Worth, before I hit the grocery store, I could find a pretty place and take some selfies?!  Or maybe after work, before the attic guy comes and starting dinner, I could drive to the park and get some pictures?!  Yes, it’s difficult to admit defeat.
Anyhow, it’s really hard for me to NOT have a Friday post, so I leave you with these happy thoughts from my pinterest board.  {seriously been OBSESSED with pinterest lately}  Enjoy the weekend y’all!

  1. I love Roald Dahl! My son is such a huge fan! Sometimes we gotta rely on good old Pinterest to keep our blog from burning us out!

    Good luck with the interviews!
    Xoxo

  2. That is very exciting, you are one more step closer to your dream. It would be interesting to hear about this whole experience. Any little one who will join your family is a lucky one. Happy Friday!

    1. Thank you so much Nelah!! We are so excited, and I feel like it’s now going at “ludicrous” speed! {Quoting Space Balls!}

  3. Wow, you sure packed a lot in one day. I’m so pleased to hear that the adoption process is moving forward. I had no idea that you take your own photos. Thought Mr S was doing it for you. Your photos are incredible!!! You’ve obviously worked hard to continually experiment and improve your blog.

    1. Gosh M, I wish I could get that much accomplished in a day! That was within a week! Mr S and Hilary do my photos, and when they’re not available then I do my own! I’ve been trying to post photo credits under the photos!

  4. Wow! And I thought my week was busy :) so happy you had such a fun productive week. BTW I still need to go to forty five ten, I knew I should’ve met up with you there lol!

    Have a wonderful weekend, Sam!

    1. Victoria!! Next time for sure! It’s best when they’re having their 75% off sale! Then we can really do some damage!
