I'm Coming Home...

A special thank you for all the lovely ladies who commented on yesterdays posts. I've tried to write back to most of you - but I appreciate your thoughts and for those of you who offered them, your prayers. I can never have too many of those, of course.

I'm happy to report I booked a flight home yesterday. My work is doing out Indianapolis Colts event September 17th and I'm going to fly in a couple hours early and try'n squeeze in a few extra minutes with my precious family before and after the event. I'm going to catch my team playing (of all teams) the Cleveland Browns and I'm hoping to weasel a little post birthday spoiling out of my parents (like dinner at my favorite restaurant).

I will turn the big 2-6 on the 12th and head home the 15th so I think I can talk em into a dinner out at Stonecreek Grill (if you live near Indianapolis you HAVE to go - I'm obsessed). But most of all I'm looking forward to errands and coffee dates with my mom, precious hard to come by time with my sweet Daddy, maaaybe sleeping in my bed for a night before I get kicked out for game weekend company (trust me, that feels more like home than actually getting to sleep in my own bed). And my first taste of fall weather!

It's still in the 90s daily here in Tampa so it'll be nice to catch a little chilly weather while I'm home. I'm looking forward to sporting this....

I snagged this orangey-red Kenneth Cole trench on the sale rack of Nordstrom Rack for...are you ready for this?...$22. Marked down of course from $158. Ta da. So stoked. It's a great color - with black, brown, grey, even khaki (which I rarely wear). So I think it's going to debut on my trip home, perhaps with some boots?


I'm ready to welcome the month of September with a visit from my high school friend, Ashley, for Labor Day weekend, my birthday!, a trip to Indy to be with family and to work, and a trip to Minnesota (also for work). September is going to be a great month and I'm not trying to breeze right on through the last week of August but...I am pretty stoked to get started with the next month.


Love,


B
