10 Things. 10 Thoughts

I’m doing the 10 Things on Tuesday…err… thing again!

1. Yesterday, I replied to an email that didn’t require a response for the sole reason that the sender spelled my first name as “Rachael” when the email was in reply to my email and my name was right there in front of him as he typed. I have a long and complicated last name and I had a long and complicated maiden name… so I get it when those are misspelled, but of all my names, “Rachel” is so incredibly easy not to screw up. Don’t worry, I didn’t reply to correct him, just so that I could sign my name on the email correctly.

2. I like this picture. (Is that conceited because the picture is of me?)

3. Do you write down recipes that you make up even when they’re really simple? I whipped up a really easy dish and Brad insisted that I write it down in order to make it again. Continue reading

K-Couple Photo-Filled Weekend

Welcome to my (Tuesday) weekend wrap-up!

Friday

My busy weekend started on Friday with a trip to Mount Union’s beautiful rain-soaked campus to chat with an Advanced Public Relations class. I love talking with students and sharing with them some of the things that I learned the hard way or that I wish someone had told me when I was sitting in their desks.

After my presentation, I braved the rain again to stop at Green Farms market, a wonderful little store that smells like fresh fruit, to pick up a few things. Including some farm-fresh goodness that Brad has been unable to find since we moved “up north.”

Saturday

Saturday we made the trip south again (3rd time in one week for me) to see my brother-in-law and his girlfriend off to her senior prom, have a double date with my in-laws and crash at their place for Sunday’s wedding.

We sent the swanky looking couple off to the dance in our car after playing paparazzi. Brad’s an excellent photographer and I’m pretty good at identifying shots and posing people, so we made a good team. (And practiced a little for Sunday’s wedding.)

Purrsday

This week has completely gotten away from me! I haven’t had the time to write blogs and I have some unfinished drafts that I may just trash anyway.

But I have had time to take pictures! Holmes and Watson have been their usual cute, cuddly, purring selves so I figured I’d share some cute kitty pictures.

How’s your week going?
