Whatever


This post is about whatever pops into my head. Nothing too exciting going on over here, but I don't want to neglect the old blog. And I have been up to some new things, just nothing too exciting to write a whole blog post about, so we'll combine into one...

- We took Walker and my nephew to the circus last week. Let's just say the old circus has come a long ways since I was a little girl. The graphic screens they have are amazing and the prices of the toys and souvenirs are ridiculous, but it was worth it to see the smiles on their faces, or  rather, the clown noses on their faces.

- I recently signed up for Pinterest and I'm having so much fun on the site! You can follow me here. So glad someone thought of this - I come across so many great ideas and pics on the web and never have seemed to be able to organized them in a productive manner. This system is great. Just to show you some of the fun things you can pin on the site, here's a great print I found just yesterday. Makes me chuckle...

- I've recently signed up for a CSA (community-supported agriculture) called PapaSpuds and I'm loving getting such fresh, healthy food! They recently started delivering to my office on Tuesdays and I get to pick out what I want my delivery to include each week. Today I got flounder, hamburger, onions, cauliflower and some chocolate croissants for Walker.

- Walker and I went to see the Justin Bieber movie this weekend and we are both official Beliebers. That kid has some awesome talent and is such a great guy! Walker now wants to take singing lessons, has posters of him in his room and we bought the soundtrack from the movie. Seriously people, he's that good. You come out of that movie feeling like there is some good stuff going on in this world and you want to be part of it.

- Also on the Bieber front (seriously, if you've been following me on Twitter you know I can't stop talking about this cutie), his success is such a great study on the power of social media. He was actually discovered on YouTube and he is very active on Twitter and originally used it as a way to get people to come see him perform at malls, etc., before they even knew who he was. Kinda neat.

- Walker has also recently become obsessed with rollerskating. My nephew had his birthday party at the rink in Roxboro and Walker tried it for the first time and loves it. I loved rollerskating when I was younger and used to spend hours on skates in my parent's basement.

- I sold my bed on Craig's List yesterday! I've been contemplating getting rid of the clunky thing and buying a platform bed, so I decided to take it apart Sunday night. Mike put it on the front porch, I put it online yesterday, and it was sold by last night. I'm loving my mattress on the floor. I think I was a hippie in a former life.

- I've got some home projects I'm going to start soon, but just not motivated to start quite yet, but stay tuned. Projects include: update of downstairs bath, painting front porch (some cool pattern), updating Walker's room and I'm contemplating something new for the stairs (but not sure on that one yet).

- That's it for now. I realized as I'm writing this post at midnight why I can't fall asleep - side effect of forgetting to take my crazy pills. That means I will also have night sweats and crazy dreams. Sometimes the crazy dreams are kinda fun, so will let you know if anything exciting happens.

  1. Justin actually came to my house for dinner before-he-was-famous. He is/was friends with the son of one of Doug's friends. I keep thinking I could sell a random fork from my silverware drawer for at least $1M. haha. He was a cutie when we met and very nice manners. Love the fresh delivery idea - sounds divine!

Blog Cards (The New Calling Card)

I came across this budding trend online and thought - what a great idea! I have people that occasionally ask for my blog address and wouldn't it be great to have a blog card with just my blog address on it to give to people? I guess you could say it's the new calling card. It can make your blogging duties feel much more ligit and even promote your blog if it's something you're trying to profit from.


moo.com has templates for mini cards that would be perfect for blog cards. Cathe at Just Something I Madeposted some great examples of blog cards she's used in the past to promote her blog -

Let me know if you need a design and I can put something together for you!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
