Arrested Development Season 4!

Are you loving season 4 of Arrested Development? I have two episodes left to go, and then several re-viewings, but overall I love it. Maybe not exactly what I expected, but I just love so much that fans wanted this show back and everyone who needed to make it happen did just that. I always felt guilty that I had no idea this show existed until it was over, so I'm feeling a lot better that I was part of the push that resulted in a comeback!

So did you host a #bluthparty? Andrew and I (Mr. Manager) had our friends Scott (Buster), Amalia (Lucille), and Gaby (claimed to be Maeby) over and we had catering by ICE and frozen bananas, which are actually pretty amazing. I made a banner, put a dead dove (bag) in the freezer, led a Bluth drinking game, and we had many laughs. It was such a joyous day!

Have you download the new A Beautiful Mess app? Solid use of $0.99!!

My banner - pre-strung or hung. 

So good, and very fun/easy to make. The above was double dipped - GOB style. We have leftovers, too! Don't mind if I do.

I'd LOVE to hear about your party!

Since I have let myself go without blogging for so long, I need a prompt. Currently...

Game of Thrones season 3 has two episodes left. I read ahead and finished the corresponding book. I've been stressing about how they will fit everything into this season, when I found out they are not covering the whole book this season. Who will die?!?!?
Also, Arrested Development season 4 is happening this Sunday. I am so excited! We are also having a couple fun things like frozen bananas and catering by ICE. Are you doing anything for the big day?

Listening to
Not enough. NPR, Kate Nash's newest album, and random stuff on Spotify. Music suggestions? Send them my way!

Our trip to Turkey and Greece in late summer. We bought the plane tickets a while ago and haven't done much else. Now it's time to start booking a boat, a villa, etc. It's getting kind of expensive, but otherwise I'm excited!

Thinking about
Lots of things. I just started a new job, got some good news from the doctor, and had a fun trip to San Francisco and Napa. But I'm a worrier as well, so I always have something on my mind. I'm so happy that it's finally warm outside and that my allergies are finally letting up!
Oh, and I'm thinking about those in Oklahoma. That's scary stuff.

Looking forward to
My first paycheck from my first "real job."
Also, this weekend! We are celebrating Memorial Day with friends and also watching Arrested Development. If it's warm enough, I think we'll head to the beach as well.

Well, I finally finished the third Game of Thrones book, and then I whipped right through Lean In, which I highly recommend. Now I'm working on re-reading our book club book (my pick!), The Lords of Discipline, and a couple other books like Change by Design and Quiet.

Making me happy
Watching my cat Stevie sleep right now. He's all sprawled out on his back like this:
