Friday Finds

The kitchen is going to be one of my top priorities this weekend.

But then again, there’s also FOOTBALL.

Me with my good friend Lindsey.  I look sleepy.  At least I’m wearing makeup.

Two new developments in the kitchen though:  I think I’ve found the replacement hinges.  They fit in exactly the same spots as the old.  Considering that these will mean I won’t have to patch & drill new holes all over the cabinets and doors, I’m pretty happy.

And then, there’s this.  As part of my health goals this year, I’ve been trying to drink more water.  A LOT more water.  My brain could certainly use it instead of the usual soda overload I subject myself too (needing caffeine is kind of a given with my schedule).  Aquasana sent me a drinking water filter to install under the counter by the sink, and I’m hoping this is going to take my swanky new kitchen up an extra notch.  And when it comes to my plumbing skills, I could always use a little more practice :)

But you know what that means:  typically, when I get something, one of you gets something.  So hint hint, Monday might just be a little better than it usually is.  You’ll get more details on my installation experience AND might have a chance to snag your own starting next week.

Have a great weekend, folks.  And GO DAWGS!!!

    Husband went to UGA, so we naturally have a UGA flag hanging outside our front door. Mind you, we live in Virginia. Last weekend, some rando drove by our house and shouted out to him: “6 MORE DAYS!!!!” He’s so excited, he’s waking up at 5am and smoking a brisket the ENTIRE DAY in celebration.

      That was me and my husband (UGA ’03!) when we lived in Virginia. Anytime we’d see anyone in GA gear we’d have to yell “Go Dawgs!” Now we do the same thing, but that’s because we live in Alabama and we all need to stick together in the face of the enemy. :)

    FOO-BAWL! You gotta say it REALLY Southern and obnoxiously, like a drunk UGA fan. ‘Cause we don’t know what that’s like do we?! :)

    CUTE faucet. Me likey.

    And I look so young in that photo. I need to get to another tailgate, during a day game with Red!

    Love the faucet! We are moving next month into our “permanent” (hopefully) house and all the faucets are leaky and on our to-do list :)

    Triple check your connections on the filter housings. I could never get the filter I installed for my parents to stop leaking there.

    Have fun at the game. I think my sister, brother-in-law and kids will be there.

    Oh, oh…I’m heading to my first UGA game in Athens this upcoming weekend. Any tailgate hints? Anything else we should look out for? I’ve seen UGA play several times but always away games so super excited for a game between the hedges. I’m from NY and people up here just don’t appreciate college football so I’m thrilled to be in the thick of it on Saturday.

    Woohoo for finding perfectly finding hinges and increasing the water consumption…maybe it will balance out all of the fabulous IPAs that seem to be consumed during football season!

      The thing I hear most that’s different about the way we tailgate is the attire. At UGA (and often in the SEC), we wear our “Sunday best” to games. I have a whole section of my closet for red and black dresses. You won’t often see a T-shirt among the women (who have also spent hours on makeup and hair), and men often dress in polos with the university logos on them. Freshmen pledges have to be a little more formal.

      There are some strange rules about areas that can and cannot have alcohol, so just following the crowd is probably your best bet. People will be EXTREMELY generous and friendly, so be sure to ask about calling the Dawgs (and note that you don’t spell it D-O-G-S). You will have a BLAST, and I’ll be attending the game as well. We’re glad to have you in attendance!
