I'm so RANDOM (My kids favorite word of the month)

Apparently everything I say is "just so random". If that is the case, well then, I guess my posts will be too.

I'm trying to fight a slight Chipotle addiction. I think I have a chicken burrito(black beans, hold the cheese and sour cream) at least twice a week. A few weeks ago I had a fabulous idea of making my on Chipotle burritos and freezing them, but that never ever happened. Their adobo chicken is just so dang good. I have to admit though it is not limited to Chipotle. If there isn't one close by I'll just hit Q-doba. It's not quite as good but it will do. I need help.

I'm super excited for the Pride & Prejudice party @ Sarah S's house this Friday. If anyone has not heard of this yet, please know it is an open invitation to all. 6:00 dinner. 7:00 movie. Yes, it is the 5 hour version so be prepared for a long and glorious night. I can't wait!

I've decided to do another GIVEAWAY! Everybody thank Jody. It was her idea. Just leave a comment on this post and you could be the lucky winner of the Origins Spice Odyssey body scrub featured in previous post. It is my attempt at apologizing for boring you all with that sofa crap ( we bought the Dexter! ). Keep in mind I ship. So if you live far away, no worries. Wow, I don't think I have said "no worries" since a had a massive crush on TJ! That was a long time ago! And for all you men out there, I think there are two of you including my husband, you can comment and win this for your significant other. And for those of you that don't roll around in dirt & dill all day, you can give it to someone who does! After you take a huge whiff of the best smell on earth, of course.

My next few weeks totally rock the fricken house! I'm feeling like one lucky girl. I get to buy new furniture for my living room, I get to go on a group ski day with some friends, I get to see The Decemberists in concert, then Elise and Steve come up for another ski trip, then I have a hair appointment with the best hair dresser ever, then I have a book club beach getaway! Wow, that is a lot of fun stuff for me.

This is Chris's sister Joyce and our niece Catie. I wanted to send props out (I can't believe I said props) to an awesome sister in law. She RANDOMLY set me up on the National Do Not Call list. She is awesome for many more reasons, but that is the one for today.


Well, I guess that's all my randomness.
Oh, the giveaway will end Saturday night.

I love the dexter..glad you chose it. Where did you find it? When will it arrive? Don't apologize! We all need help with that sort of decision.

Becky said...

I love the couch. So crisp and clean with a little classic-retro feel. What a fun schedule. I find myself getting a little jealous.

ducklips said...

Congrats on the new couch. New furniture is always so fun, or anything new for that matter. (I bought new skirts for my girls today. woohoo!)
I am officially putting my name in the hat for the body scrub. "No worries" if I win about shipping. I'll just grab it when I get up there.
Wow, haven't thought about TJ for a long time. I think I saw one of his group at On The Border right before Christmas. But who knows it's been a long time and I didn't stop and ask,"Hey, are you one of the guys who used to hang out w/ TJ and the hot guy?" (Talk about random?!)

Bridget said...

I am loving your life right now. I just got my hair done yesterday. Ahhh, so relaxing. I even read my book while I was baking in my aluminum foil. Perfect morning.

Excited to see you Friday at the pah-tay!

YOu bought the couch!! So what's next in your plan? I have some new thoughts on chairs and I checked out the pottery barn one, which I approve of.



p.s. I want the scrub and I'm sure I'll like the smell. I like more scents than you but the less sweet/flowery are usually my favorite. Unless they smell like cheap-ma-musk.

alishagarrity said...

that's "cheap MAN musk. not 'ma'. I got excited.

Emily said...

Oh, Mer, I totally heard you on that "no worries" thing! It brought me back to being, um, 15. Glad you got over the futon idea and idiot boys, too. (That's a prop to Chris!)

Stephanie said...

I just went to the mall today because I had to smell the stuff!! I love it! Thanks for the optomistic post. It cheered me up!

Aundrea said...

I want in for the scrub!! Maybe Chris will put a comment in and win and you'll get it anyway...even more good stuff to add to your month:) I'm super excited about book club, see you then!

ps. congrats on the new furniture, I love the one you chose!

Jodi said...

Your month sounds totally awesome (flashback)! I hope you enjoy it ALL!
I LOVE giveaways!! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed. However...I won't hold my breath because I never win anything :)

Janalee said...

I know. Random is the new Awesome.

I want to be in the contest. "I never win anything".

Chris C said...

I guess I must put "my" name in the hat to win the Origins scrub. I know you, er uh I love it so much, I can't live without it. I hope "I" win!

Brian said...

As guy #2, I also hope that "I" win the Origins scrub. I think that "I" will love it so much. Everybody wish "me" good luck.

Sheri said...

I remember T.J. I also remember that he was kinda a jerk. Anyhow, I really want to win. Please.

Elizabeth said...

What fun things you have planned! I hope you enjoy every single minute! You deserve it!

Bridget said...

I just started the book this morning so I've only read a chapter. So far I like his style of writing so I htink I'll like it. It was recommended by a fellow blogger - of course the blogging, where I get all my information. I'm happy to loan it to you when I am done. I am all about using friends as my own personal library too.

Merilee said...

Brenda, We got the sofa from Mitchell Gold/Bob Williams. It will be delivered tomorrow. Yipee!

Mo, there are so many things you get to do that I'm jealous of too.

Elise, where did you get the girls new skirts? And I'm glad you didn't comment to the On The Border guy, that would've been way too weird.

Alisha, My plan is to wait for the couch and then start rug and chair shopping. I'm going out to look today actually. What PB chair? I don't remember looking at one there.

Bridget, sweet, I would love to borrow the book when you're done.

Merilee said...

Chris and Brian, you guys are such good sports.

Chelsea said...

I want your chicken recipe if you have one that is like Chipotle. That would save us on the ol' addcition we have here. Except I get mine in a bowl, with the tortilla on the side, both beans, tomato salsa..and corn salsa, extra cheese and extra sourcream. (Just in case you were wondering! :))

megan said...

i want in on the contest. I don't have much more else to say since I just spoke with you on the phone today.

Rochelle said...

I think I saw "how random" more often than I think, especially when I am talking to my kids. I am excited for your fun month! Im really excited that I am somewhere in that fun month!+)..

I can hardly wait to see your new couch!
