All over the place

Sometimes I get in the mood to write, even if I don't have much to say. Do you get that way too? Ever since I was a kid I've loved writing. I haven't honed my skills the way I should, so I don't often get the satisfaction from it that I would like. But, when the mood strikes, I must write, regardless of how much my talent is lacking. This little quote from The Prophet fits me to a T:

Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and nights.
But your ears thirst for the sound of your heart's knowledge.
You would know in words that which you have always known in thought.

You would touch with your fingers the naked body of your dreams.

(The rest of this post isn't nearly as deep as that quote, so feel free to lower your expecations now! :)

I'm all kinds of excited for the weekend, specifically for the California Beer Festival tomorrow! I don't know if I'm blessed or cursed with my fondness for beer. My grandmother on my mom's side LOVED beer before she found out she had celiac disease and couldn't drink it anymore, and my dad loves, and can guzzle, it like no other. I managed to not only inherit a strong taste for good beer (no joke, I'm practically craving it right now), but also the ability to drink a lot of it without feeling full. Luckily, I was blessed with severe hangovers when I turned 25, so I now avoid overdoing it at all costs. I'm sure that's the main thing that has saved me from gaining a LOT of weight! At any rate, tomorrow I get to sample from among 60 different kinds of beers, so I'll be in hog heaven!

I'm also excited because tonight we're having dinner with my BIL and SIL, and I'm finally getting this top my SIL made that I've been drooling over for two months. She took it off of her website since it's spoken for now, so sadly I cannot show it to you, but it's a really cute red tank with BIG ruffles lining the scoop neck. I'm planning to wear it tomrrow if the weather is still nice. This is a big step for me, fashion-wise. I'm very conservative (read: boring) in the way I dress, but I've been wanting to have more fun with my wardrobe for a long time. Might as well start now!

My mellowed-out mood from vacation is still lingering (well, except for the PMS), and I'm loving it. Last night hubs and I were lounging around after dinner and started talking about adoption. I think I mentioned a few posts back that we were leaning towards living child-free if we aren't able to conceive, but we might be changing our minds. We both actually got a little excited about the idea of adopting a baby. I guess we'll just have to see where our journey takes us.

Well, this morning went by quickly, but all of a sudden time seems to be standing still! I suppose I ought to get some more work done. I hope everyone has a wonderful, relaxing weekend!

I love beer too! Drink one for me please!

I want to get drunk so bad.

Have fun at the beer festival. Sounds like it could get a little wild ;)

I think adoption is wonderful. I wish it wasn't such a tough road to go down or I might consider it myself.
