Thursday Thoughts (2)

Posted on: Thursday, April 5, 2012

{first} Darwin did this the other day. Climbed the screen door and hopped up on top of the door. A first.

{second} Things about Texas: there are a lot of snails here. I can't remember ever seeing a snail since I left CA in 2001. It also storms a lot here. Lots of bugs. I'm a fan of central time, though. I should probably plant something in that pot, instead of it just being a place where beetles go to die (so it seems).
{third} Change of plans with my dress. It is being shipped down here, as it makes more sense for me to find someone to do fittings/alterations here instead of me flying back and forth to PA 2 or 3 times in the next two months. The downside is that I now have to find a place to do it here, and I wont have my mom and ladies here with me to ooh and aah and reassure me. I also really liked my dress lady. But, I still can't wait to see it! It's a Casablanca dress (Warning!- loud, annoying music on the website), but we changed the top part, so I haven't ever seen it as it is.

{fourth} With the release of Titanic 3D (3+ hours of 3D? no thank you), I feel the need to tell you that in 4th grade I brought my keyboard to school and went on a mini-tour around to classes, playing My Heart Will Go On. My friends got in a fight about who would get to sing along. I did some oddly showy things for a shy girl.

{fifth} I've been really wanting to go to Hawaii lately. It doesn't make any sense, but there it is. I went for two weeks with my family in '98 I believe it was. It is not in my nature to want to go somewhere warm and beachy, but I'm longing to go. I doubt traveling anywhere will be an option in the Army though. Maybe Army will station him in Hawaii after Texas (if he reenlists). We definitely do not want to stay in Texas longer than we have to. But anyway. Hawaii. I want to go to there.

{sixth} There have been a number of bomb threats at various buildings at Pitt over the last few weeks. Seven just yesterday. And they're targeting multiple buildings at the same time now (four buildings at once, today so far). There is a reward of $50,000 for information about who is doing it. I'm not even there and it's annoying me. It must be very disruptive.

{seventh} Kyle has a four day weekend! Hooray! No plans as of yet. I think I'll make banana bread. And buy a plant for that pot out front. 

{eighth} Rereading The Hunger Games is nice. There's no rush. More time to think. And, I still think a Hunger Games theme/inspired wedding is a dumb, dumb idea. A bow-and-arrow and a braid does not a theme make. Also, remember all the death, torture, and psychological trauma? I know there is a love story in there, but it is a severely tortured one, and not one I would want to base my wedding around. I am getting a huge kick out of all the gifs and images floating around the internet, however. For example.

{ninth} I have such a thing for polka dots lately/gradually.

{tenth} I just ordered this vintage golden, pearl and rhinestone hair pin from Acute Designs on Etsy. I'm not entirely sure what my hair and hair accessory situation will be for the wedding, but this could be the perfect thing to incorporate somehow, especially to bring in a little gold. :)

Lastly, Thank you for the comments on the wedding invitations! :) Glad you like them!


  1. Woohoo!

    Your cat is absolutely adorable. It's hilarious to see him adorably perched up in the corner as little as possible, balancing on the door frame. So cute.

    Happy Thursday Sarah!

  2. i love the idea of those pins in your hair for the wedding....beautiful!

  3. That Peeta text made me laugh out loud! That's awesome!

    Found you through the link-up! :)

    1. Haha, I love it.
      Thank you for visiting! :)

  4. Snails...yuck! Love those Thank You cards. If you go to Hawaii, please take me with you :)

    You will most definitely not find me paying $ to see Titanic in 3D but loved your story. That's pretty awesome!

  5. I lol'd about you traveling around with your piano...good stuff! Stopping by from Sar's link up!

  6. It could work if you broke the guests down into districts and then choose members at random to compete in various "hunger games." Not that you should do that...
    Also the cat is awesome.

  7. LOL. I'm imagining a Hunger Games wedding now. Weird, weird stuff.

    Your dress sounds so beautiful!!!!! And those hair pins are the perfect combination of flirty and vintage and elegant and feminine. GAH. Love them.

    Uh-oh, Darwin. You better get down from there...
