Nothing says summer like Rocket Pops!

19 days and counting.

You know when a deadline is creeping up on you like a sneaky younger sibling who is coming around a corner trying to scare the ever loving sh*t out of you?  Well I’m having that moment at work today because I realized today that the students are coming in less than 4 work weeks.  Dear god of organization please you help me now.  XOXO Sarah.  Luckily things have been going relatively well at work lately and perhaps things will be somewhat ready before the kiddos show up (current taking my imaginary giant fist and knocking it against an imaginary giant piece of wood).  Good thing my coworkers are hilarious today we may or may not have measured one of their heads'…

…using blue tape and a ruler.


Incase you forgot (if you did you fail) this past weekend was fathers day (or daddy’s day or dada’s day if you live in my world).  Sadly mi papi lives 500ish miles away and thus we celebrated via phone and will celebrate via yummy food and love when SP and I visit later (post kiddo program).  SP and I also got to eat dinner with her fabulous dada – I don’t think they call him that but he is an honorary dada in my world.  And per his request (and in what appears to be true SP family tradition) we ate meat.  Good old meaty mc meat on a plate with fatty bread and potatoes.  For someone who is clinically addicted to carbs I was like a pig in heaven – or maybe just a pig.  I may or may not have eaten an entire bread basket myself and then essentially couldn’t eat my dinner.  Oh well.  But it was nice to celebrate the daddy’s in our worlds.

This weekend SP andI  also did nothing.  Sweet wonderful nothing.  And got groceries but that’s not part of the nothing.  Seriously though I think I slept past 7am on both Saturday and Sunday – WHHHAAATT?  Good thing since this morning I woke up at 5am and never went back to sleep, oh body why you hate me so much?!

This week is le busy, but its so nice because new and old friends are coming out of the woodwork and it makes me feel so social and loved and friendy-ish.  And more baby time is coming up in my future and thus sarah = happy person.

The only thing that is not so happy.  Today’s high of 98 degrees.  Fine summer, I knew you had to come sometimes.  And there goes my life savings to Air Conditioning – but dear sweet ice cold heaven, how I love you.  (pretty sure there is an entire post dedicated to AC in my near future)

In celebration of all things fun and summery SP and I made POPSICLES.  And in true Sarah fashion we got rocket pop makers (mostly because I literally couldn’t find any others…)  That's zero calories of good-ness right there!

Wherin I pop on my soapbox for a moment...

Sweet Sparklers!  and yes I stole this from the inernet - So credit to wherever credit is due...

***As a disclaimer – I haven’t been planning this since I was 4.***

At my wedding I want sparklers, and margaritas and laughter.  I want hugs and dancing and regular food.  At my wedding I want love and joy and cupcakes.  I want candid photos and comfortable (and pretty) clothes.  I want champagne and sparkles and friends and family and friends that are family.

I don’t want complicated or fussy or stressful.  At my wedding I don’t want traditional (fat chance of that huh?!) and  I don’t want to worry about who sits next to who, in fact I don’t want people to sit at all – I want them to eat and dance.

At my wedding I want joy, not sorrow, fear or confusion.  

Most of all I want my wedding (not right now, calm down!) – legal or not.  But legal would be better.

Last night I made tortilla chips... and other super awesome things

A few super cool things about me and life etc.

1) I made tortilla chips last night.  Not like made the corn meal and stuff, but like baked up some tortillas and I'm not going to lie they were the BOMB DIGGITY!!!!  Like so crunchy and salty and yum yums in my mouth.

2)  The dog has stopped peeing in the house again due to the strict schedule she is on now.  Maybe she'll learn to pee and poo on command?!  That could the awesome.  Although what really could be more awesome than the carpet not smelling like dog pee all the time?!  Nothing I tell you.  Nothing.  Well except maybe my home made tortilla chips.

3) The high school students invade my program and my life in 25 days.  That is a 2 and a 5 people.  That is less than a month.  HOLY MOLY CAROLLY.  Running a program is real scary like.  I'm not going to lie, I can't wait to meet the genius kids, they are the best part of this whole experience.

Don't worry though... 

4) I ran 4 whole miles on Sunday.  That's probably the most I've run since I ran a half marathon last year.  So while 4 miles pales in comparison to 13.1 I'll take it for right now.  4 miles is like almost on the way to 13.1 right?  Right - marathon running here I come (too bad it went from 56 - 96 degrees in a week - literally in one week)

5) SP and I are going to so-cal in August.  So now disneyland, the beach, the wildanimal park and much much more is in our future - got to keep my eye on the prize.  It will be the longest we've left the dog with someone else - I'm having separation anxiety already.  But a real vacation sounds pretty good right about now.  Only 9ish weeks (ughhhhhhhhhh)

And that's the haps for today.  Funny stories are coming.  Like the story of the forever famous (infamous golden throne)...

Say WHAT mother nature?!

The weather makes my face do this...
You know how some days you just feel really good for no reason in particular, I’m having one of those days and its so lovely.

Work is suuuuper busy because the kiddies come to my super cool program in just over a month (AAACKITY ACK ACK) but I finally have come to some kind of peace in myself that everything will be fine and I just keep plugging along.  And I’ve realized that in the big scheme of things it ain’t no thang.

SP and I have some activities a happen’ this weekend so that’s exciting.  Tonight is a going away party for some good friends who are moving off to North Carolina which I think is real stupid (no offense North Carolina) but it’s pretty exciting…Congrats Dr. Matt!!!  We are sad to lose you but I’ll be calling you when I have weird ailments, fear not.  And hopefully his SP, Sean, will also live it up in NC.  I’m sure yall will have the best chickens in town!

Tomorrow there is a little league game in our future (unless of course it is torrentially down pouring) and then there is some fun with the sisters Denks and then a fun filled trip to SP’s stomping grounds!  All of these plans are contingent on mother nature playing along. 

Speaking of mother nature since when did I move to the Midwest?  Pretty sure my nerves are oh so not prepared for tornados (NO MORE NATURAL DISASTERS UP IN HERE).  I only just convinced myself that I am not going to die in a giant earthquake (shut up I know it can happen but I don’t want to talk about it) I don’t need to spend a bunch of energy worrying about monster hail and killer twisters (all I can think about is a cow flying through the air).

But nonetheless nothing gonna get me down because the happy vibes are a flowin so bring it on mother nature, you bipolar little witch, because I can layer with the best of them.  Booyah.

Happy weekend friends!  May mama de nature be more stable in your town than she is here…

P.S. I am madly obsessed with livingsocial and groupon.  Jump on the bandwagon people because couponing is oh so chic these days!  More than you want to hear on this topic soon :)
