it’s friday. it’s the weekend. it’s finally friday. i have such a good weekend planned and it looks like the weather is finally going to cooperate with me.
today i have a meeting at hope college for my big girl job and while i’m on campus i’m taking my little sister out for lunch. the sun is shining and it’s above 45 degrees so we are going to walk downtown and grab lunch somewhere in downtown holland. after that i head back in to grand rapids to finish some office stuff up, quick fluff the store and restock for the big sale tomorrow and head out to dinner with joe. we are thinking salt of the earth but who knows. the busy season is looming for the lakeshore and we are squeezing every last “walk in” dinner that we can. however i am in the mood to shake things up tonight and maybe find something new. or maybe go back to some place we only visited once. we went to the southerner a while back and stuffed our face with some amazing fried hot chicken. i could go for that tonight. i’ll start the pepto bismal treatment now. joe and i joke around so much that we talked about having a “joe and abby’s dining guide” i don’t know. part of me thinks it would be fun, part of me things it would be 90% salt of the earth. what do you think?
tomorrow we are having our big meltdown sale at the shop and i’ll pop in there in the morning to help for a bit. we marked down a lot of bigger pieces, tons of vintage smalls and a lot of accessories. needless to say, you will not be disappointed if you make the trek out. after that i’m picking up a few groceries for the weekend and some dirt (to start my first round of seeds!!!) and then working (pending rain) the rest of the day outside. i still have to decide what to make for dinner saturday night. we invited our pals brooke and jesse over for a night in. i love going out but sometimes the best quality time catching up is by staying in.
sunday afternoon is going to be spent either demoing more yard or re merchandising the shop. we are going to tear everything apart after the meltdown sale and refresh for spring. new product coming in and spring clothing and it’s time to shake things up. we usually do this monday night but the amount of things we want to move around is going to be a two night deal. we…. have a lot of work to do.
so another full fun weekend. i’m going to savor each second and rejoice in the non frozen weather. (correct me if i’m wrong but didn’t we have a winter storm warning last weekend?) thank you michigan weather.
happy friday 🙂
