random sunday morning thoughts

1.my dog is shedding.
like insanely shedding.
good thing for me that i love my golden like crazy
& my dark floors like crazy.
i remind myself of this as i swiffer the floor
multiple
times per day.


2. my hubby has lost almost 20 pounds
in the last few months
by eating less
& exercising more.
funny how that works. huh


3. i got my hair cut yesterday.
what a luxury.
i'm sure most women get a trim or atleast a touch up every 6 weeks
or so
maybe?

well, i never feel i'm worth ponying up $50+ for a cut.
i mean it's in a ponytail most of the time.
(i shamefully admit that)
so i go for a professional cut
maybe once a year & have one of my girls trim it the rest of the time.
cue the crickets.
but i've found this precious girl
who i think does a great job
& she's half of what i pay.
in fact for caroline, whose cuts run $50
she's $13.
hallelujah.


 4. i'm loving driving around in mgk's car.
she's sharing.
she's awesome like that.


5. savannah is home from Harry Potter world.
i'm so proud of she & bailey
because they took hundreds of photos.
no lie.
& i really want to go there myself
& re-read all the books 
again.
 6. emi comes home on thursday!!!!!
not three weeks from thursday
not thursday after next
not this thursday but the next
but
thursday.
as in 4 sleeps.
i can hardly stand it.
i have slept with my phone beside me for these last three weeks.
i've dreamed about her.
i've washed her sheets & dusted her room.
i've picked up her new silver glitter toms as requested
& several outfits for the beach.
and
i've scheduled her appointment at our local orthopedist


7. did i mention she's coming home on thursday?

I love all this randomness...especially your delight in your girl coming home!

Dana said...

"four more sleeps"...i love that! I forgot we used to say that all the time when ours were little! So happy for a safe return!

Renee said...

What a great Sunday post!!! Just four more sleeps??? That's is so exciting. Savannah and Bailey inspired me to read Harry Potter...a fun summer activity. Thanks for the post. Happy Sunday.

Jodi said...

hope you have a wonderful weekend; i love the random post. :)

Way to go for your hunny, that is really awesome!

wow, $50 for a haircut, i believe I would probably cut my own too. I pay 17 for a haircut here and that is high for around here.

i can't wait to hear how emi's trip was, i bet she is counting the sleeps until she gets home too! (so cute, we do that here too when we are counting down days!)

i also can't wait to see more pictures of Savannah's trip, how fun! :)

take care! Jodi
P.S. we got our yellow lab yesterday, she is so cute, i will have to send you a picture. Beka named her Bailey! :)

Cheryl said...

photos of the haircut??

Paige, I just think you are the neastest, most awesomest, adorablest, funniest, kindest, you-name-it-in-the-positivest EVER! Enough said!

Simply Jen said...

aahhh...smiles on my face this Sunday morning...reading your words always seem to have that effect ;o)
Hug, Jen xo

Judy said...

My mutt sheds like crazy during the summer months...I tell my husband with all that hair I could stuff several pillows! It drives me crazy, vacumming and swiffering (is that a word) but I love my hardwoods and I love my dog.

Hope the 4 "sleeps" pass quickly until your baby gets home!

Judy said...

...oh, I'm guilty of spending $$ every 4-6 weeks on hair maintenance...gotta keep those grays at bay and it does feel good whenever someone stops me and says "who cuts your hair?"

Susan R said...

These are going to be four long days my friend, but what a glorious reunion it will be.
Okay...that is so not right. I can eat less and exercise more and for some unknown phenominon, I weigh more. I swear it's the truth.
I want to drive MGKs new car too, I think y'all should take a road trip to my place.

Sounds like life is good:)

LuLu & Co. said...

Yea for thursday!!! Harry potter world is on our must do wish list too!!!!!!
xo,
LuLu

Rox said...

As always... I triple love your photos :) Nice to have Sunday thoughts today too... Happy for four more sleeps! Prayers for traveling mercies too.. Would love to know the girl you found for your hair and Caroline's... Kate, Sully and me are not cheap... I usually get one twice a year...need it more often.. congrats to your Honey on the weight loss.. not an easy task.
I'm eager to see photos from HPW!

Kat said...

So much fun!!! Can't wait to see your new do, I assume Jessica cut it and did a fabulous job as usual. LOVE her!!! So excited for you that Emi is coming home in a few short days. Yay for Dan for losing 20 pounds. You, my dear, look fabulous too!!! Can't wait to see you when I get back! xo

Sheri said...

How many sleeps? Your a great mama Paige. xoxo

Jodee said...

Love your random thoughts!

Congrats to your hubby on his weight loss!

I completely feel your pain. I pay $45.00 for a haircut EVERY four weeks and I have very short hair!

Four more sleeps! Hope you have a great week!

Privet and Holly said...

Mine got home
on Saturday...
a day late due
to some plane
issues and a night
on the Charlotte
airport floor...but
she made it and oh,
it's good to have
my chick back in
the nest! xx Suzanne

Traci said...

Love the random thoughts. Great for your husband! It is funny how that combination of less food and more exercise works....easier said than done:))

Our golden is also shedding like crazy! I too swifter 5 times a day.

Jenn A said...

I'm with you...I only go for a pro haircut a couple of times a year. I am not a high maintenance girl, and I love my ponytails! AND I am not ashamed to admit these things!

Kelli said...

I love random. I also love a good inexpensive hair cut, fresh flowers, VW beetles, and the fact that Emi's coming home...Thursday right? :)

Kimberly said...

So glad to hear your girl is coming home. Loved this post!

chris said...

yeah for mamma to have her baby back home again. im horrible at letting my kids go too far.. they are 23,21 and 14. un-apologetically.
as far as my hair goes i am not good at keeping up a style either. luckily for my my 21 y/o does hair and is very good at it. she is trying to get me to start low lighting my hair to cover the few grays i have in my sandy brown hair but i dont like the whole maintenance of it. never have. long simple style. un apologetically..lol

janet said...

I love your blog and I can only imagine how excited ya are for Thursday to get here..Have a great week..
Janet

Kristin said...

I love this post. Just sweetly stated. I know you will be very glad to see her face very soon.

Between You and Me said...

I know you can't wait until she gets home....and you guys leave for the beach!!!

I'm in love with the glitter Toms....wonder if I could get away with wearing them for even one minute?

love the random facts of your week....feeling one of those posts coming on myself!

Tiffini said...
