Favorite Finds: Have you heard?

Do y’all watch the news?  I watch the Today Show every morning while I’m eating breakfast, but this week I’ve had no desire to tune in.  Why?  Because every other segment Al Roker [I have nothing against him, he's just doing his job] has an update about Hurricane Sandy.  If you haven’t heard, Hurricane Sandy is supposed to be a big bully storm that may bash the mid-Atlantic and Northeast Sunday into early next week.  You can read more about it here.

BUT, there are two different models and they’re predicting two different paths…  I’m in favor of whichever one says that Sandy is going to stay out to sea.  I’d like to go to Kings Dominion on Sunday and I’d like for our power to stay on *fingers crossed*!

Question:  If you’re on the east coast, are you preparing for Hurricane Sandy?

Question:  What are your fun weekend plans?  I’m celebrating my birthday dinner tomorrow and *hopefully* going to Kings Dominion on Sunday!  Lots of fun times with friends!

Whatcha Think?

  1. so….the chalkboard paint on the wine glasses is pretty much the most genius idea i’ve ever seen. and the best part? it looks like a craft i could actually do as opposed to most crafts on pinterest which are wayyyyy outside of my wheelhouse.

  2. Err, white chocolate chip cookies? I wouldn’t even care if there was pumpkin in there, I’d still dig in :D And I have wanted one of those clocks for ages! They are too cool–and would match my kitchen perfectly. How handy, right?

  3. I made those chalkboard wine glasses form Pinterest! they are super easy and my friends have (too much) fun with them.

    Also, I want those cookies, but with dark chocolate. YUM.

  4. That doggie is adorable!! I am loving the cartoon too!

  5. I’ve always wanted to go to Kings of Dominion. When the hubs & I lived in NC for 4 years, we always said we’d stop one time when we visited our family in PA.. but nope, it never happened :(
