Tofurkie Days!

I somehow coordinated my days off w/ the holiday
 and had 5 days off in a row. Heaven I tell yeah!

I ate tofurkie.

I co-hosted a wedding shower.

I found out I am getting a nephew!! (YIPEE!)

I went out for the first time shopping Black Friday!
 "It was HELL in a big box (store)! HATED IT!
Won't do that again!

I didn't exercise as near as much as a planned..
nor did I do lots of things I had in mind!

I've said it once and will say it again I am sure.
 Dog sitting is harder then kid sitting!

-Yesterday a homeless smelly man approached me and
 informed me my shoes didn't match my pants.
He also said my jacket was a few colors off.
-I had the worlds worst headache last night!
-I had my FORTH birthday dinner last
 night...and I am sure it will take months to
work of last nights dinner!
-I love to win blog giveaways!
- I sware I think more about my
 sister wedding decor then she does! (It's how I roll)
-When I sell things on KSL it is like magic.
-Last night while quietly sitting in my car,texting and singing Christmas music
a friend approached my car and scared me 1/2 to death.
 I honestly pooped my pants...and screamed a few
octaves higher then I have in a long time. Thanks Jill!

 Last night...I happened on a herd of WILD TURKEYS!!

Doggie Glam!!

I am love'n the cool Autumn days! It is too cold for some though.
I decided to play a little Project Runway this morning.
I cut up a t-shirt leaving the collar and refashioned it
in to this darling proto-type. I used a different thread and bobbin and the
arm holes are to high. and my word the sewing is wild. time it will be

JJ Cole Baby!

Today I had to run to Logan for work.
I saw another blue banner where the Down East Sale
was last month. It was a JJ Cole Baby blow out!
My little sister has a baby bump and so I thought I'd take a look see.

What do you say is a "must have" for a new tiny one?

Target Love!

I love when I walk to the mail box and find goodies like this!

Filled w/ goodies like THIS!!

I LOVE it when it is totally free.
Thanks Target!

Tiny Tree...

Last night I made this (@ Relief Society).
 I like it! I think she is cute!
My tree didn't look like anyone elses
 and some people thought she was broken
and were shocked I let her legs show.
Who is this woman they gasped in my direction and
why is she using lime green when all the rest of us are
using jewel tones. Most often I do things diffrent and
it suits me and my tree just fine!!

"Gratitude is the
most exquisite
form of courtesy." Jacques Maritain (1882 - 1973)

Tonight while at work I grabbed the recycle bin and went to work.
I whipped up this thankful tree!
 (Now in hindsight I see the trunk should of been
 tapered but that is a project for another day!)
Hope this tree fills to over flowing!


Tonight my sweet niece called me
 while I was at work. She wanted
 to report she had lost her "north tooth"!

*Today it snowed!
*I awoke after hitting the snooze no less then 5 times. I looked
at the clock and thought "I don't do 8:03 well".
*Today I learned a lot.
*I hob knobed w/ those on TV and..and learned they are just like us!
*I leaned that most people are just people.
*I was reminded how much I hate to scrape my car...but
decided I'd feel blessed for having a car.
*I remembered how blessed a nap is.
*I learned that sometimes you have to pull out the
 "sensible shoes" and forget the cute shoes! Just for comfort sake!
*I confessed my fashion icons to be my
 friend Karen and a ten year old in my ward.
*I suggested "my temple" and Maddox
 as hot spots to those visiting from out of town!

All that and the day is through..and I couldn't be more pleased!

"Stick a flower on it!!"

EVERYTHING is better w/ a flower on it. Especially ME!
 I needed a place to corral all my flowers and so I made this little darling.
 A frame w/ wire. How is that for technical?
Awe but it makes my life so but more organized!
 Happy November!!
