More love than wine

Happy Thursday! You know the deal about wine and love - as always, thanks to lovely Nora for hosting!

Things this week that make me want to drink a glass (or bottle!) of wine:

*Ugh, my stupid knee. I'm hoping this will not be on the wine list for much longer.

*Some feelings I can't seem to shake no matter how hard I try. It's like I'm in a funk but only when it comes to one thing - and I've been trying to snap out of it for awhile without any luck.

Things I love this week:

*My life planner is here - and it's fabulous. Except for the fact that I'm missing a month next year. (It goes from July 2012 to September, skipping August). I sent an email to customer service, so hopefully this will be a fast (if not easy) fix. It kind of put a damper on my excitement, but otherwise I really like the planner so I'm hoping this doesn't become an issue. (Trust me, much more to follow!)

*The fact that I'll be getting my first month of Birchbox next week! It'll be just in time for my birthday which is perfect timing if you ask me.

*Getting to see my brother, sister-in-law, and niece tomorrow! I mean really, how can you resist this face?
This is what focus looks like.

*The fact that said brother and sister-in-law are making a quick stop to meet up with Mandy and bring more fiestaware our way. I can't wait to drink coffee out of our new fiestaware mugs!

*The weather being rainy for the past few days. I'm loving the way it's ushering in fall. Some think it's dreary - I find it cozy.

*All the fall shows coming back in the next few weeks. We don't have cable so I watch everything on hulu, and I'm excited to start getting those emails that say "an update has been added to your que."

*That my love list is longer than my wine list this week.

What's on your wine and love this week? Happy almost Friday!

So bizarre re: your planner! Hope it's a fast fix! I have not started using mine yet as I am going ot finish out my 2011 planner, but i sure heart my new one. Esp since it's sort of frenchy w/ the fleur de lis! :)

Oh my, your niece is so adorable. Don't you want to just eat her up?

Wine:
- I'm really freaking tired.

Love:
- I am going to be an aunt again on Monday!!!!!! My SIL has her c-section that am. Our family doesn't find out the sex, so it's a surprise. I dreamed it's a girl, but my mom saw the 3d ultrasound and said the baby looks just like their son, Kolin. We'll see what she has!

I am so glad you got your planner - and I am sure the Erin Condren people will come to your rescue about your missing month. I hope you have a great time with your niece; they are fun at that age :)

I have kind of secretly been loving the rain too! Esp. at night, perfect to fall asleep to!

Amber (Girl with the red hair) said...

Such a bummer r.e. your planner. Hope it's fixed ASAP. I think there website getting hacked messed them up a lot because I've heard of a few people having messed up orders now!

Yay for seeing your adorable niece and getting more fiestaware. I am getting some plates in October and I CAN'T wait!

Your planner is missing a month?! How strange & annoying. That definitely puts a damper on the penciling-things-in fun.

Lauren Margaret said...

I happen to think the rain is cozy too!

Btw, I had a minor problem with my life planner once and the fantastic customer service team fixed it immediately :)

Nora said...

Ok, so apparently I have to get an Erin Condren planner. At least it seems that way :)

Thanks for playing. oh and rain? YES, it's cozy. I love it and I don't care what anyone says.

Love? I've been super productive at work today and even more production to come tomorrow I think. Busy times = good times, at least usually. <3

So jealous about the Birchbox!

Lynsey @MoscatoMom said...

Frustrating about the planner. I make planners as well, so I know what a frustration that is on the other side too - hope that the ONE planner is the only one missing, and not the entire batch. That is a NIGHTMARE! Hope you get all fixed up soon!

What is Birchbox? I have never even heard of it!

Jenny Taylor said...

I hope your planner is a fast fix, too. I hate when you're SO excited about something and it ends up being...well, not right. Ha! I'm such a perfectionist, too, so I obsess about things like that.


I think everyone has "funks" every now and then and I feel like I'm on the verge of one myself...not quite there but soon. If that makes any sense. I always find that quiet alone time helps me with those, so I think I'm due for a coffee date with myself. I hope yours passes soon! Maybe the weather change will help. :)

Have a great weekend! Oh, and I'm stealing a button on my way out. ;)

Such a cute niece, too!

westcobich said...

She's a little darling, your niece! What fun you must be having now.

Curious about your planner - what it looks like and how you chose it (I dither over planners forever and then get the SAME one every year!)

And Mandy is there?
And you're having Coffee (my addiction) in Fiestaware? Lovely.
Hey, I bought Starbucks "Anniversary" coffee today for hubs. Wish it had comne out 2 weeks ago during our real anniversary, but he is, nevertheless, delighted.
Think of you and your hubs every time I walk into a Starbucks, too.
Congrats on a long "love" list this week!
ANd welcome Fall!
