A package was left on our porch from Fannie May Candies. My first thought..."Is this the same Fannie May that lent money too loosely and started our economic implosion?"
Yep. Fannie May sent us a box of chocolates. I wonder how many people they sent chocolates to and how much money that adds up to be. Are they trying to get me to like them so I won't blame them for inadvertently ruining our economy?
I want to do our bedroom green! I love green if you didn't know. This photo will be my primary inspiration (thanks Molly). I can't wait! To start, I'll need a bed spread, pillows, curtains, paint, and a rug. Ohhhhhhh thats a pretty heafty start. Darn! I think I'll recover some throw pillows that I already have. I'll also paint something greenish onto my lamp shades. YAY!
Did you hear? It's Giveaway Day over at Sew Mama Sew. Our blog is hosting a giveaway (along with a billion others) but I'd have to say we're definitely giving away one of the best prizes. So check it out.
I hate Black Friday. I'm always so disgusted with the news clips of people racing through doors to get to the good deals. Of course they only show the really extreme videos, but still. Until this year I had never ventured out at 3:00 a.m. to get a good deal. What changed me you ask? We needed a washer and dryer badly! We took advantage of the incredible deal going on at Sears. We were home by 6:00 a.m.
I feel like I have to do the fourth folder tag since all my sisters did it
Wanna know what's so great about this picture? It's MY piano and it has been living at Molly's house since before we moved to Georgia. Well, since WE ARE CLOSING ON OUR NEW HOUSE ON MONDAY, I'm getting my piano back just in time for Christmas! Can't wait!
update:the fourth folder tag is where you go to your fourth photo/picture folder and
post the fourth picture...or however you want to do it really.
I took a quick trip to Logan the other night to see my new niece Callie Ann. It was nice for all 4 sisters to be together. Congrats Josh and Abbey! The last pic is my fav. She peed all over the bed right after it.
Neko Case put on a good show last night. We had some nice standing room at the very front! Good thing, cuz otherwise I wouldn't have been able to see anything...and surely I'd have come home grumpy. The trade off: too close to the speakers, I kinda have a headache.
Number 66 of my photo scavenger hung is 'a dog.' Perfect, I thought. I'll just get a great shot of my lovely Zibby. After all my trying, the lighting was bad and he wouldn't hold still for long enough. This was the best I could do:
The bottom two are the best contenders for scavenger hunt inclusion, but I'm just not thrilled about either of them. Amid my struggle, I met the local quilt shop dog, Stella. She's a 3 month old miniature Shih Tzu (is that even possible?). Just look at her!
So that was my betrayal. I didn't love my pictures of Zibby and couldn't resist using Stella and the picture on the left. Oh Zibby, please forgive me!
Don't you love my new purse? That's okay if you don't. It's so smooth and smells like soft leather! It even does an awesome diagonal sling making my bike riding a million times easier. I'm so happy I could eat it! wait....no.
We had a nice day on Saturday at the farmer's market. I even got a few good pics for the flickr scavenger hunt. We also walked around the Gateway and Temple Square. We spent the rest of the day watching the Olympics. It was a great day.
