T - 28: Couponing

Today was a quiet day, which I needed after the last few busy ones and what promises to be a busy week.

I gathered the weekly coupon inserts, printed other coupons, printed custom shopping lists from Passion for Savings and otherwise prepared for the week's shopping. Then, I blogged about it.

Tonight, I'll marinade and apply rubs to the meat I defrosted yesterday to grill tomorrow. I'll grill turkey burgers, chicken breasts, hot dogs and hot links. I love doing this in the summer. I cook once every week to 10 days. I slice up the chicken for salads, sandwiches, pasta and stir-fry. It makes meal prep so quick and easy. I do the same thing in the winter, only in the oven.

T - 29: Hair Length Check, Visit with my BFF, Bridal Shower Favors

Flat-ironed my hair for a length check.
I've had a disturbing amount of hair loss the last few months,
due to the worst tangling I've ever had in my life.
I'm pleased with the overall growth retention, but need a trim.

Someone likes Hello Kitty, just a little...

You can barely see it, but the license plate frame is also HK.

Beautiful sky on the way

Before - the favors also had white ribbons around
the boxes with a little cardstock bottle of champagne.

After - the bride's colors are black, white and sage.

The favors were kitchen timers shaped like champagne buckets.
We kept them in the box, because it read, "It's about time!

I realize now I forgot to take photos of the centerpieces, all the fans I hot glued, my bestie and her adorable 3 year old boy. Oops!
