Can we just all sit back and enjoy for a moment that fact that it is Friday. It’s okay I’ll wait. Done. Okay. This weekend will be a busy one for me but I am still looking forward to it.
One. I am excited to be heading over the apartment of Kate from Another Clean Slate this Saturday for her SIP Happens party. Basically a reason to drink a few different brands of wine picked solely for their labels. The best part is I get to finally meet Kate and also Jodi from Jodi Bean’s Blog.
Two. It’s virtual mug time!
Jessica from Wifesicated has a full house of animals, and I am not talking about the 3 boys in the house! Girl has 6 dogs, 5 cats, plus a few other animals. She is also starting a 90 Day Bikini Challenge so check her out!
Danae from Duh Danae looks like a badass but she has a heart of gold. She reconnected with her man after 10 years apart and he put a ring on it and they are now celebrating wedded bliss. She is a connoisseur of Vodka and every month shares a new brand to try out.
Three. I am reading this book right now and 3/4 of the way through. It is a wild goose chase of who done it, with a love connection thrown in the mix.
From Goodreads: He took her life, but left her alive.
Three years ago, reporter Kate Johnson was the first victim—and only survivor—of the Broadcast Butcher. Scarred both physically and psychologically by the brutal serial killer, Kate lives life on the run, knowing that one day, he will find her and finish what he started.
In the pursuit of justice, you sometimes have to step outside the law.
Agent Hayden Reed spends his life chasing monsters. The only way to stay sane is to detach, but the second the Broadcast Butcher case crosses his desk, Hayden knows this is the case that might just cost him his soul. To catch this vicious murderer before he strikes again, Hayden must find Kate and earn her trust. For it’s her darkest secrets that hold the key to stopping this madman once and for all . .
Four. The Awesome Note App is really helping me get organized. It costs $3.99 but totally worth it. The one negative to this app is it does not copy to other devices like other apps do. So if you purchase it on your phone you would have to buy a second copy for your iPad etc. What I love about this is you can have multiple folders and lists within those folders. You can easily transfer items from folder to folder. I set it up to manage my daily to-do lists, weekly to-do, and monthly or soon (things I may need to research or save money for before I can do it) then I have my grocery/shopping lists, and goals lists. *Disregard the Goal Folder I updated it before I saved the image.
Five. A little funny to round out the list. Jim Gaffigan explains why Southerners are so slow. Biscuits with Gravy and Chicken & Waffles might be involved.
What do you have planned for this weekend?
So jealous you get to go meet those ladies! Can’t wait to hear about it! Love that mug, I may need to purchase one!
I know, I can’t believe it has taken me this long since we live so close. So glad you like it, it made me think of you!
Brenda @ Chatting Over Chocolate says
Thanks for sharing the awesome note app! Looks like a list maker’s BFF!! Have a beautiful first weekend of Spring, Kerry!
It is so perfect for us list makers! I love how you can move it from one list to another too so you don’t have to keep re-writing your list. Have a great weekend!
Liz @ Fitness Blondie says
That app looks so interesting, thanks for the reccomendation Kerry. I love that it’s on your phone. I am the queen of making lists on paper and forgetting them
Thanks girl! I love it! It is perfect for keeping your lists on the go. Easy to add things on the fly and re-arrange as needed.
Have fun at the wine tasting! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you! Any excuse to get together with bloggers and drink wine is okay in my book! 😉
I love Danae’s mug… perfect choice!!!
Have fun on your blate! I’m super jealous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It just screamed Danae! We will have to plan our blate soon!!
kathy @ vodka and soda says
say what??? you get to meet kate?? jelly. give her a big hug for me please 🙂
Yes, I know right! I mean we live in the same state, not sure what took us so long! Totally my fault, but I am so excited! Will give her a hug for you!
That book sounds great, I love a good who done it. I want to buy it and add it to my “to read” pile but I’ve restricted myself from buying more books until I can get out of my reading slump.
Have an awesome time at your sip happens party, sounds like fun!
I got it for free at NetGalley. I totally understand the overwhelming number of to-read books though. It is going to be a blast I am sure! Thank you!
I hope you have a great time at that event. Meeting bloggers in person is so fun!
Thank you! Yes, I love meeting other bloggers. They get all the crazy that goes into blogging. 🙂
Have fun at your blogger meetup/wine tasting! I bet it will be a blast!
Thank you! I am really looking forward to it and i know we will have so much fun!
Jessica Gardner says
you are the best! That mug is so perfect for me 🙂 Hope you have a great Friday & even better weekend!!
Glad you like it! It has an animal kingdom so I immediately thought of you! 😉 Hope you have a great weekend!
I’m still old fashioned and love to write everything down…although i do use the reminders on my iPhone…i’ll have to share the app with Gary – he loves that kind of stuff!! enjoy the sip party – sounds like a blast! Have a wonderful weekend!
I love pen and paper but not have a million lists everywhere. I actually put 6 different half crossed off lists into this app last night. I am so looking forward to it. Thank you.
Tori G says
Have fun at your wine tasting party! Gotta love that Danae!!
Thank you, I am so excited! She is such a doll!
Taylor Jeavons says
That app seems pretty awesome. I typically go to the grocery store with a giant legal pad…
Tattered to Taylored
It is so good for keeping a list with you wherever you go!!
Kate @ Another Clean Slate says
I don’t know why I am so nervous to have you ladies over. I’m a freak! But excited 🙂
Don’t be nervous! No judgement here! Just excited for finally meet you guys! We will have a blast no matter what, I mean wine hello! 😉
So fun that you are meeting up with other bloggers!!! I love that animal mug 🙂
Thank you, i am so excited! Isn’t it too cute?! I mean animals are so cute so you can’t go wrong! 😉
A wine party?? That sounds fabulous!!
And seriously, I could watch Jim Gaffigan for hours on end. He is so ridiculously funny!
Have a good weekend girl!
You can’t go wrong with wine and bloggy friends!! 🙂 He is hilarious he is on my Pandora and seriously is so funny! Have a great weekend!
Ok, I would love to go to a sip happens party! I feel like I’m on a deserted island out in West Texas with no other bloggers anywhere near me!
I mean wine, nuff said!! Haha! There must be other bloggers near you! 🙁 Is there a Facebook group or something for West Texas bloggers?
Nichole C says
Seriously, how fun does SIP happens, sound?! Have a great weekend!
I am so excited! Good food, good wine, good company! Hope you have a great weekend too!
Linda Sheridan says
Lovely Friday post. Love the wine tasting and getting to actually meet your friends. LOL on the “slow” southerners. I think people who live at the beach are more relaxed and slow moving, too.
Enjoy your weekend. Love SMD’s momma
Thanks! I am so excited to meet them since we have been blogging friends for a long time now. Almost time for me to meet Steph too, countdown begins! I have always felt I belong in the South so it was funny but also amazing at the same time. We Northerners don’t do slow very well but I dream of it! 🙂
YAYYYYY for the freaking weekend! That’s so exciting that you get to meet Kate and Jodi!! How fun! I also really love your “mug” section. It’s just too freaking fun! That app sounds like it would be a life saver over here!
It will be so much fun! Thank you, I really like doing it and showing off some really good bloggers. You should check it out I really think it is the most user friendly to-do app out there and I downloaded A LOT!!
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
I’ll have to check out that app.
I love the concept of a SIPs party, I hope you ladies have the most fun!
I love it, and it’s so easy to use. Thank you! I am sure it will be a blast and lots of laughs!
Oh, Jim Gaffigan. He cracks me up.
Isn’t he just so funny?!
He is so funny. Gets me every time!
Love Danae! That book actually sounds really good! Adding it to my “to-read” list on Goodreads!
It is really good! I am almost done and it make you think you know but then keeps you guessing the whole time!
Leeann @ Join the Gossip says
Looks like a fun weekend! Any time alcohol is involved I’m in lol! Enjoy 🙂
It is going to be a jam packed weekend but I am looking forward to it.
Oh my gosh, your weekend sounds like soooo much fun!!! I loooove Jim Gaffigan!
It was so much fun and getting to meet everyone was great. He is just so funny!
Kelly (@KRod0519) says

It was fabulous! Loved getting to meet everyone and enjoy some good wine! Hope you had a good weekend!
Oh – so cool that you are going to meet and hang out with Kate! Have a great time!!
Thank you! It was so much fun getting to finally meet her!
Carla Bruns (@RealInto) says
I’m loving the layout on that app. It’ makes things so easily organized. Sounds like a fun event that you’ll be going to. Have fun!
It is really the best app to help get organized and easy to use!
So insanely jealous that you are having a bloggy meet up! I am waiting for the day that I am able to meet up with some bloggy friends!
It was so good to see them since i have been reading their blogs for awhile! It will happen.
Jim Gaffigan seriously cracks me up so bad. I instantly like anyone who likes him 🙂
Well then I like you too!! He is so funny, I listen to him on Pandora all the time!
Love that you and Kate are hanging out! And I love Jim Gaffigan! Clearly I am having a low-key weekend if I am catching up on blogs on a Saturday night. It’s lovely 🙂
Haha! I got this when I was at the party so I didn’t get a chance to respond. It was a blast! Jim Gaffigan is so funny, i listen to him on Pandora all the time. Gotta love a relaxing Saturday night, though!
