parties, parties, parties

wow it's been a busy few days.  we had the official grand opening "jamboree" of our learning center this weekend.  we moved in about 6 weeks ago, and the whole celebration came together really fast.  we actually had three parties: one for our new neighbors at the golf club, one for all of our builders, and one for every participant and family.  now i'm exhausted.  my last day of weekend golf lessons is also today, so it'll be nice going back to full weekends soon.

now mike is off on a business trip to memphis for the next few days, so it'll be a bit lonely around the house.  i decided that i didn't feel like sitting around the house until 11:30 when i had to leave for work, so i went out to brunch like we normally would do.  i decided on panera so that i could at least catch up on some blogging.

not gonna lie, i feel a lot like this right now.  but then again, creepily people watching by myself at a table is probably equally as weird haha.  i'm currently enjoying my favorite "you pick 2:" macaroni and cheese and chicken noodle soup with an iced green tea.  i imagine that the next few days will be filled with a lot of take-out and meals like this since i've never exactly mastered cooking for one.

i'm also going to catch up on a few mini projects i have been neglecting. [sidenote: accidentally just typed meglecting instead - and that's definitely what i've been doing haha.]  i'm thinking i'll finally try a recipe i thought of for mint chocolate chip cookies to go along with my ice cream cookie theme here & here, make some homemade cheese its, and finish the plastic bag holder i started a week or so back.

for now, here are some photos i took of our wonderful grand opening celebration:
