Yay for the Freakin’ Weekend!

Happy Friday, y’all!  This has been the slowest week ever, so I’m hoping this weekend goes nice and slow, as well, but we all know it won’t!  It’ll more than like go by super fast and Monday will be flying upon us like those crazy creepy flying baboons from the new Oz movie.  Oh well, it is what it is….happens every week like clockwork!


If you’re interesting in entering a giveaway for one of my 8×8 “Moonlight Cherry Blossoms” paintings, make sure and head over to Simply Stephanie blog a.s.a.p.!  All you have to do is visit my Etsy shop “The Painted Palette” & take a look and then go and leave a comment on her blog, as to which painting you like.  Easy peasy!  The winner will be announce on Monday, May 6th, so you only have until this Sunday to enter.  Last I checked there were only 4 comments, so you have a pretty good chance, so go enter!


Remember in my last post where I said that all of my posts I’ve written lately were in draft mode over on i.seekissimmee.com?  Well, if you head over there now, my first post has been published, so you’ll have about 10 more that will be published throughout the next week! Some of the posts you’ll see over there this week are for some pretty good places to eat, like Hawkers, Beaches & Cream, & Blue Bird Bake Shop.  You’ll also see my review of the musical dinner show the Hoop Dee Doo Revue, which is pretty spectacular, as well as things like the Boardwalk, Downtown Disney, shopping at The Loop & of course the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival.


Other than that, not much else going on.  Been doodling a bit in my sketchbook & playing around with my logo character.  Tomorrow is my 1 month weigh in.  I’ve been trying my best to be a good girl and eat more veggies and smaller portion sizes.  My goal for the month was to hopefully be down -10lbs, so fingers crossed I can hit that in the morning.  As of week 3, I was down 7.7, so far, so we’ll see!  Well, until I post again…yak at ya y’all later & have a fabulous freakin’ weekend!!  


It’s the Little Things: Unbirthday’s & Making People Smile

My little things this week:

Getting the chance to FINALLY give my bestie the Unbirthday Card I found at the art store over a month ago!  I think she was almost more excited to get it, than I was to give it! I was so excited when I found it, I think I squealed out loud in the store!  I grabbed two, one to give to her and one for me to put in a picture frame for home.  We love Unbirthdays and we celebrate them every month….usually with a fun date at the wine bar!  Love how a card can make a persons day! 🙂

A little bit of love left on a post it note at work…from the bestie of course.  It pretty much made my day!  It doesn’t take much…lol!

Tall, Caramel Machiatto from Starbucks this morning, as I didn’t get much sleep last night.  Along with my favorite Tiramisu flavored cake pop that I stuck in my drawer at work for a treat later in the day.  Gosh darn it…I forgot to eat it.  Guess, it’ll be a surprise treat on Monday because I’m sure I’ll forget about it until I come across it in my drawer.

I was kind of off my game this week on picture taking, but there were other little things throughout the week as well, such as…

Getting told you’re fabulous several times throughout the week AND all from different people!

Making someones week that was out of town on business and bringing her a box full of Larabars, since they are Gluten-Free and she can’t have any gluten.  I know it’s got to be hard to have dietary limitations while traveling and not having a car to go get things, so I thought I’d try to make it a little easier on her.  Plus, I’m just nice and that’s how I roll…lol!

Glasses still haven’t come in and still have a headache…3 weeks now.  Fingers crossed they will be on my little things list next week!!!  Have a great weekend y’all!
