The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

Friday afternoon brought in the initiation of about 9 days of vacation...our office is closed for the next week to allow us a week of summer leisure (which, in my opinion, is well-deserved!). I have been looking forward to this weekend of hanging out with my honey and then a few days with my parents this coming week. I believe I am headed to Columbus on Tuesday morning with a stop in Atlanta to see my sister and her new house. Then on to Biloxi with my parents for a few days of relaxation and tourism. I am pretty excited about a few days off, very excited to get to hang out with my parents for a few days, but pretty bummed that Chad has to stay home and work. I wish he got more vacation time but we are saving up for a possible trip sometime around our (2 year...whoa!) anniversary in August. A long weekend might be manageable for us amist my heavy recruiting season...

As for this weekend, we got many things accomplished for the house yesterday. Chad spend some frustrating time working on making the lawn mower run smoother. I am working on fixing up one bedroom at a to come. I wish I had an unlimited budget to get, buy, do, fix anything and everything I want but I will use what I have and make it look good. We did buy a $20 night stand at our church's yard sale yesterday that I will be painting and finishing to go in one bedroom. I am fixing up a little reading corner with a comfy chair - working on making all of our hand-me-down furniture look good together is my present challenge. A visit from my mom and sister as soon as I get back next week poses a deadline for getting things looking decent...

Vacation. I am not sure what to do with much that I might just do nothing. :)
