Don't be a hater...you know you love it!
(Makes you want to go to Rome, doesn't it?)
New thing #5...
I have a great hand-me-down kitchen table & 4 chairs (thanks Kelly Mc). I have tried to strip down the millions of layers of paint on the table, but that's scary and not finished, so no picture. However, I have managed to paint almost all of the kitchen chairs RED! And yes, I did it all on the 2" x 2" pathetic excuse for a patio at my apartment. Good red though, don't cha think?
New thing #4...
I know, technically my apartment is not really new anymore, but I just rearranged the furniture yesterday (Thanks to Anne playing Stacy & Clinton in our own little episode of "What Not to Wear/Keep/Store").
Besides, I have never posted any pics. So...this is #4 because I say so.
New thing #3...
"I'm just a girl who cain't say no, I'm in a terrible fix."
Today at church I was asked if I would teach a class on something (foody) for the holidays.
"Of course, I would love to! As long as it's in December, because then classes will be over."
...sure, let me just fail my classes first and then I will squeeze speaking in church and this class into the first week of what I am sure will be the shortest winter break of all time! Maybe someone can ask me to make a wedding cake or sing in church too.
Honestly, I am happy to share, after all some people aren't as talented as I am. (kidding...already!)
New thing #2...
they were on sale at Bed, Bath & Beyond (both 50% off) and I thought they were beautiful.
New thing #1
One of my dearest friend's, April is turning 21 (ha!) on Wednesday. And I wrote her a poem to go along with the Wal*Mart gift card I am sending her for her birthday (she left me to live with her husband Antonio in San Antonio - I just like saying Antonio & San Antonio together).
If you think a Wal*Mart gift card is a bad idea, then you are invited not to read the poem. Besides, I wrote it for April and she will get it and it is funny. So there!
There is nothing like a best friend
Who, if needed, $5000 would lend
Some friends make goodies and cakes
Some friends cozy sweatshirts they take
A perfect partner for a summertime cruise
A perfect ear to tell of the pounds wanting to lose
The hours we spent surfing LDSsingles.com
Searching profiles of every Peter, Paul & Tom
Girls night out just simply isn’t the same
Scarlett doesn’t make good company looking for my flame!
New friends don’t get it; none have your kind heart
Nor the desire to spend endless nights at Wal*Mart
Now you’ve found your knight in shining armor
Thank you LDSsingles.com…he is quite the charmer
Friday nights you can find me talking to strangers
Roaming the aisles of Wal*Mart tempting danger
My life can’t compare not having you near
Wandering thru Wal*Mart shedding a tear
So for your birthday it only seems fair
Wal*Mart shouldn’t be a place of such despair
As you wander the aisles exploring the clearance
Think of the time I made an appearance
...TAG, you're it!
