It’s Getting There

by Courtney on August 2, 2012

Good news! I have been on the go ALL DAY LONG…and the house is finally starting to get back to normal.


I’m loving the TV stand we purchased, but I want to go out and find a couple of bins to store some of my workout DVD’s and Wii games. I’m sure they’ll be easy enough to find…Tar-jayy, here I come!


I also spent about two hours this morning putting together another one of our new pieces of furniture…you see it hiding back there?


Yep…I did that. All by myself. Smile


The directions were actually pretty easy to follow, there was just a lot of ‘em. We still need to attach it to the wall so it’s got a nice, funky lean to it right now, but we’re getting there.


Only a few more boxes left…ha.


So I didn’t really take too many photos of food today since I was on the go pretty much all day long…but I do have another fun food-related product that I’ve been meaning to share with you guys.


A couple weeks ago, the folks at Petit Amuse reached out asking if I’d be interested in trying out one of their sample boxes, and since I’m always game for food, I was happy to accept the invite.


Petit Amuse looks for some of the best artisan food producers to include in their marketplace, which features hand crafted regional favorites, foreign delicacies near impossible to pronounce, and local, organic versions of familiar foods, too.

I was sent one of their latest sample boxes to try out, which you can actually subscribe to and receive new treats each month.


I was excited to see some of the Oogie’s kettle corn since I thoroughly enjoyed it the last time I had it in my possession. Winking smile

The rest of my snacks included a garakukabar, ice wine jelly, and a couple kinds of shortbread cookie.


Super fun, right? In case you’re interested or want to learn more, you can check out some of the other info about their sample boxes here.

Alright my friends, gotta jet…for the fourth night in a row this week, we’ve got plans to attend to. Tonight? My parents, brother, and his girlfriend Meg are coming over for dinner. Smile

Have a great night everyone! (It’s almost Fridayyyyy!)

It’s just the thing for people who already have got travel arrangements and merely require
a space. For people who want to stay with this city to get a bit longer timeframe, finding a comfortable
extended hotel would be essential. Especially
for travelers going with their spouses or using their families,
the all-inclusive vacation is a wonderful means to make certain that all the cost is covered,
and, perhaps more important, an excellent means of avoiding fighting about money in the vacation.
