Hey check out my placemats underneath the cigar boxes. I am resolved that my indoor picture taking skills suck, however, if you can see the popsicles peeking out you might recognize the artist/designer that made them. I ordered a set of placemats and coasters from my son's school fundraiser and a few of her designs were on the summer dishes/table settings featured. Pretty cool :)'
All in all, not a huge haul. I actually spent more in gas to get around than I did on purchases so not sure if I really made out, but I did get out of the house and had some alone time while DS bonded with his Dad today. Other items, a Gooseberry Farmhouse Christmas cookbook (I love cookbooks...and the Gooseberry one's are so cute), a set of mini bread pans, and a nice picture....which when I put it on the wall, I knocked off my nice big clock...yep...it shattered into a million pieces...wahhh....now I have NO CLOCKS in the palace. My alarm clock bit the dust a while ago, both of my watches are dead, so now...it's the computer and my cell phone that connects me with earthly time now. Note to self...you best get to the store tomorrow and fix this situation!
After thrifting, I did some obligatory cleaning around here and laundry--which I still haven't remade my bed with my clean sheets and it is super late---that could be a problem, but I digress---after that was all done, I went poking about to find some things for our newest swap, whooohooo--I'm trying to make my own theme within our main theme, so hopefully I can find/make/thrift the rest of the items to complete my idea. Once that trip was complete my son's Dad dropped him off for me at the pool we belong to and lil man and I had some fun in the sun and water. Normally I don't spend a whole lot of time in the pool but today...it was 95 degrees so I put in some water miles for some relief! I'm definitely getting a tan but I have a farmers tan, because I will not take my shorts off and show my fat arse. I really am embarassed of it---I'm certainly not bathing suit ready this year. I'm not sure what has happened. Well I know what has happened....the result of which I've turned to food like an alcoholic turns to the bottle. Don't get me wrong, we're not up to the mega muffin top stage yet, but the badonkeydonk butt is rearing it's head. Time to snap snap and start loosing some poundage so I can be at least fit into a dress for MY MOM's WEDDING coming up in less then a month. Yep...Mom is getting remarried, to her neighbor down the road on July 7th. Which just happens to be my Dad's anniversary to my Step-Mother who's name is Jodi (my real name), and her birthday just happens to be on the same day of My Sister, not Sherry--but Becky---Sherry's birthday just happens to be on the same day as my cousin Jimmy's--my Mom and Aunt went into labor on the same day in the same hospital--my Dad brought them their together as a matter of fact---Sherry's oldest son's birthday is on My X's birthday, and her youngest son's birthday is on my youngest's Dad's birthday, which just so happens to be his anniversary as well to his new Wife. But I digress.
Create to live, live to create.
