Is it Friday yet?

18 Sep

What a weekend🙂 after being sick all day Friday, I started feeling better that night and decided Saturday that it was probably time to shower, get out of my PJ’s, and get some stuff done. Mom & I took some of Kinsley’s old clothes/toys to Once Upon A Child and walked around the mall for a while. My wallet took a nice hit after the day was over… Then we headed to the Greek Festival to celebrate my grandpa’s 75th birthday with the family🙂 Kinsley got her face painted for the first time, and Nana bought her an Elmo balloon (which she’s been carrying around the house all morning, and she’s got some super-static hair goin on). The best part was watching her get up on the stage with all the other kids and shake her little butt and spin in circles to the music… she stole the show🙂

RV World

16 Sep

While I was out running errands this morning before work (which I ended up not going to) I drove to the other side of town to drop off a craft show application. The woman’s house was right beside “RV World” and I couldn’t help but drive through the parking lot and look at all their 2011 clearance stuff. I feel like it was all a sign of things to come🙂 I really wanted to walk through and look at some of them, but I figured I better take things one step at a tome and get the business up & running before I talk about taking it on the road…haha🙂

Things I used to take pictures of…

15 Sep

I remember when I got my first camera and started figuring out all the cool things it could do🙂 I started taking random pictures of anything and everything from that day on. I have albums upon albums of pictures of flowers and clouds and trees and fences and animals and whatever else worked with my 9 year old attention span. I ended up with a collection of pictures & each one brings back a random memory from my childhood… I love it🙂

Anyone else have pictures like this from when they were young?

 

 

 

 

 

Blogging: a love/hate relationship

15 Sep

I’ve never been good at this whole blogging thing… I’ll spend 4 hours editing my layout and theme every day, and less than 10 minutes actually posting stuff. Blogging and I have a love/hate relationship… There are tons of things I love about the idea of a blog. You get to share your day and be creative and post new things all the time, and if you’re lucky people will actually take some interest in what you post and start following you. Which means their friends start following you and instead of 23 views a day, you start getting 230 and then 2,300 and life is good🙂

Then I realize that if I want people to actually pay attention to my blog instead of the other 50 billion out there, I actually have to be interesting.

So in other words, I’m screwed. Haha… but really, this is why I don’t tweet. I don’t think I have anything that’s interesting enough to share with the world every 20 minutes. Or maybe I’m just not cool enough for Twitter. Who knows.

Props to the mailman :)

13 Sep

I love that this is the most exciting thing I’ve gotten in the mail in a long time…

Really, a box full of pretty tulle and a bag of felt flowers is all it takes to make me happyyy !! Can’t wait to get to work!
