It's been hot as blazes here lately. Much warmer than usual for this mountain climate. Glenn and the dogs and I have been managing the heat as best as we can, at times better than others. As a nod to the general steaminess gripping the nation, I focused on using hand fans to beat the heat on my "Small Measures with Ashley" post this week on Design Sponge.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend. My 34th birthday is on Sunday. I've decided this is an auspicious year for me. For one thing, there's a total solar eclipse that day (although it doesn't seem to be visible anywhere but in the deep Pacific). Secondly, my books debuted this year. There's also the additions to my family (both my own, with Nugget's November 3rd due date, and my brother and sister-in-law's, whose first child, James Waugh Adams IV, was born on July 1st!) that are happening in 2010. Plus, 3 plus 4 equals 7, and my mom has always found that number to be particularly indicative of good things.
I'll be ringing in the occasion early tomorrow, with my mother, grandmother, and hubs, as we feast our way through the Grove Park Inn's Farm-to-Table buffet. I just drooled on the keyboard. On the big day itself, I'll be at the Cake Shop, slinging sweet wares, before returning home to host a few friends for a build-your-own taco buffet.
Wherever you are, whatever you do this weekend, may it surpass your wildest expectations!
