InstaFriday: Blog Sugar or BUST Edition

Good Morning!
Happy Friday!
I will be Southern California bound in a few short hours...
Kind of excited.
KIND of REALLY excited.



Last week, I Insta'd my Euro pics, which means, I actually have two weeks of Insta's to share.

Sunday night, "Chipotle" (and I use that term loosely, since it was more of a BYOD) Sunday was hosted by the Skeigers (Ellen, Cindy, and Jamie) - and Ellen gave me part two of my birthday gifts - a Geocaching Travel Bug. Do you know what Geocaching is? More info HERE if you are interested. It's really fun! And there is even an iPhone app - which makes doing it super easy - and super fun for us iPhone app loving types!

Monday morning, I was running some errands for church, including a trip to Kinkos.
And inside of Kinkos was a Schnoodle.
Which is a Schnauzer Poodle mix.
Same as Mylie.
This little guy's name was Yo-Yo.
And he definitely lived up to his own hype.

On Friday, coworker Cary won free Chipotle for our office.
You fill out your order on their form, and fax it in.
Yet my order came back so, so wrong.
I don't understand how when I'm using THEIR form,
they still can't make the order right.
(Total first world problem, especially since it was  FREE meal)
But we have been having some problems with this on a regular Chipotle Sunday basis.
Hence the new BYOD policy.
Also, I had a crazy busy week. 
So my dad had to drop off some bridal shower supplies to me. 
Twine and Lemons. Obvs.
Only one broken ice maker.
And one melted plastic tray.
Two casualties, I call that a win.

The favors/decorations were my favorite.
Baked Brie & Cheesey Artichoke Dip - they are my appetizer power house.
And I had uhh...ALL of the lemons leftover...
Tried to pawn them off at church.
Speaking of church...
I noticed that I am kind of a Sunday insta-bomber.
Especially when I'm with the kiddos.
Which I was this Sunday.
Pastor Dave was out of town - so Jason took the up front roll. 
He rocked it. Plenty of cheesey jokes. 
The kids did my favorite sunday school song - "Making Melodies"
It's like a modern version of Father Abraham. 
You get some goofy moves going and a lot of giggles.
We blew a LOT of bubbles.
And afterwards, I snuggled with her super duper cute baby.

Sunday afternoon I made a pilgramage to Anthro.
I found a really cute outfit on clearance.
Combine that with a birthday gift card.
And I think I found my blog sugar outfit.
I also found (but didn't get) this.
A teacup on a mug?
How mug swap awesome would this have been?

I also got a new toy - I used birthday money and birthday gift cards to treat myself to it.
Nespresso Citiz.
It's a bit pricey, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
I made my first Latte.
And second. 
I also kinda laughed at my tea calendar - a gift from Cindy.
My sister also went to the original Starbucks (but she says it's an imposter).
And got me the perfect mug for lattes.
I love it.
Come over and I will make you one.
You will love it too.
I even have fun syrups to make them extra tasty!

So that is kind of my week(s).
Bridal Shower.

The weekend ahead?
Southern California.


And a few other fun things....
