Friday Fever

Can't remember where I got this--been saved on my dashboard for over a month.

It's the weekend and I don't know about you, but I'm done.  If I had this set up within arm's reach I would load it up and head off to the beach.  Where are those sticks anyway? This has pretty much been the week from hell and while I realize it's better to stick with sweetness and light here in blogland, I'm not one to beat around the bush.  Rather than carrying on I think I'll just crawl back between the sheets and try to recuperate from life, flu and every other disaster that struck this week.

Here's to boozy ice pops from the Zoku, much needed pep talks with my bests, hanging off the couch watching Felicity (happy place) and finally getting the laundry done (death to slip covers).  How about you?

Have a happy weekend!  Hopefully I'll see you back on Monday with some spring in my step.  Thanks especially for all your kind words this week--it sure helps to have some banter from the horizontal.

Here is to all of those things. This week definitely kicked my ass, and I've been looking forward to this afternoon with so much intensity you'd think I'd have burst by now.

Courtney Erin said...

I've had a mother of week and really, really need some relaxation time this weekend. And wine. Lots of wine.

i'm so glad you're not faking it with sugary goodness here in blogland. blech! i appreciate honesty and realness and sometimes life really effing sucks. i do hope you get a solid amount of time to recover and take care of yourself today {and this weekend}. i love your felicity choice. such a great show!!

Claire Kiefer said...

Felicity got me through a breakup. FOR REAL. There is something so crazy comforting about that show. And the adorableness of Scott Speedman. Glad you know what to do when you're not feeling well. ;)

I want to hang out in that tent with you! Although it's been a pretty good week in my world, I'm still daydreaming about a (warm) beach.

Hang in there, and feel better!!!

Poppies and Sunshine said...

I'm sorry to hear you are sick! What an awful time of year to be sick...well any time of year is really!
I hope you can stay in all weekend and just relax and get over being sick asap!


p.s. When I saw Ruche's new line, I thought of you actually. Thought you might like it!

Another reason to heart you. There are few shows that I have ever loved as much as Felicity. The question is...Ben or Noel?

Oh I feel awful for you Carrie. Hoping for a quick turnaround so you can enjoy the last days of summer. Lots of choclate might help too?

Marissa said...

Poor Carrie! :( I hope you were able to relax and recuperate this weekend. Here's to a better week for you!

Noe @ ADELLA AVENUE said...

Sorry to hear your week has gone to crappyville. Being sick in summer is the worst for sure (not even accounting for other stuff you're had to deal with). Hope this week goes a bit better.

Happenstance said...

Hi Carrie! Sounds like a heck of a week. Hope you're feeling better and recharged after the weekend. Sam from Vintage is for Lovers told me about your blog (love) and that we live in the same neck o' the woods. We should grab coffee sometime!:)

Erika @ ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

i swear sometimes i think our lives are on the same channel! - last week was INSANE for me too - and today started with a punch in the gut! - NOT FUN! .. but u know what u do? - BUY urself that 1 thing u've always wanted and say f*ck it; live for just THIS momenet, screw whatever else; and if u wanna parade around the house feeling sorry for urself DO IT, but not for too long -- get all the negative energy out and open urself to the positive flow ... i'm sending u love vibes -- FEEL THEM? ... ok wait just a min, they do gotta travel all the way to Cali from Nj .. OK NOW do u feel them? .. NOW? .... well if u don't feel them JUST yet, just give it a few = they are on their way!!!!

happy friday, dear carrie!!! i hope you kick that cold and all its mean buddies who are pestering you!

OneCraftyFox said...

You're totally right, where the heck do those sticks come from??

Love the entire layout. If you had a little hideaway on the beach like that, I'd totally invite you in and we could have some girly gab while eating drunken popsicles and watching reruns via laptop.

It sounds as though your week has been as awesome as mine. And by awesome, I mean... totally not.

Lots of love to you. Feel free to gripe to me over email anytime. I have loads to say right about now. lol

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

Glad your week is over and you can enjoy and repair this weekend.

The sheet fort reminds me of my kids in Rarotonga. They use to grab all the surrounding sticks and sheets from the house and built forts on the beach.

Val said...

I hope your weekend was a great one !!!

Wow... That pinky tent seems really lovely and comfortable. Now that my long holiday has just ended and I must get back to work, I wish I could linger a little bit :p Have a lovely week there!

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

I hope you are enjoying your holiday just the way you planned to. That beach oasis looks incredible. Funny, my friend and I put together something similar on my patio.... Not quite the same when I can still hear the neighbors...
