After giving it some serious thought* I’ve decided that Thursday is currently vying for top billing as my favorite day of the week. I’m sure some might argue that Friday is the better choice, or even Saturday–but who listens to those people? Those people probably have obnoxiously loud cell phone conversations in public restrooms and support People Magazine’s selection of Bradley Cooper as Sexiest Man Alive (Dear Ryan Gosling, you were robbed). Who needs those people?

No, Thursday definitely has me wrapped around its little finger. The week is nearly over, weekend plans have yet to be solidified so the days ahead are full of possibility, the anticipation of ordering my Friday morning latte continues to mount, and that to-do list I’ve been slave to all week has slowly but surely whittled itself down to a handful of completely manageable tasks that can most certainly be accomplished in the one remaining day of the work week. Plus, in the event that new episodes of Grey’s Anatomy and The Office coincide on the same night, Thursday is practically perfection!

In honor of this newly realized love for Thursday, I’ve decided to play tennis this weekend for the first time in several years (pray for me and those anywhere near the vicinity of the tennis courts) AND attempt to turn these:

{wine bottle centerpieces from More Design Please}

I’ll keep you posted on the finished product. I’m still looking for ways to repurpose the wine corks, so feel free to share any nuggets of DIY wisdom you’re willing to divulge!

Wish me luck,


*Loosely translated, “serious thought” means the time it takes for me to scramble an egg and make French toast for dinner–approximately 6 minutes and 28 seconds.
