"Sorry I'm not home right now. I'm walking in the spiders web. So leave a message and I'll call you back."- That is our new theme song! Gewn Stefani nailed it because the only time we are home, is when we are asleep. Ha!
So, so much happened in just a few short days! Let me catch you up to speed!!
I was so excited when David's boss personally invited me to a "crafty" night with a few other ladies from the bank! I packed the kitchen sink, let me tell ya. We had such a fun time, and I made three great new friends. Considering I knew nobody when I went, I feel like I came home with a new circle of comrades! : ) I knew I was with my "own" people when Holly looked over my shoulder at one of my cards and said, "She's a beauty, Clark." Any gal who quotes Chevy Chase from Christmas Vacation is bound to be my soul sister. My favorite part of the night was using the other girls' Cricut machine. Do you know what a Cricut is? It is a little gem sent straight from the pearly, white gates! It is a computer that cuts out whatever shape, image, letter, or design you want. It is basically a diecut machine that is fast, accurate, and ingenious. You can decided the size, down to the centimeter. I want one so bad. Our seven year anniversary is in April, so I am going to start dropping some HEAVY hints. The party started at 5:00 p.m. and I didn't get home until almost 2:00 a.m. I thought a cop may pull over for being out so late and swerving, but I was really trying to keep all my card stock from falling out of my bag! : )
David and I went to C C's Pizza in Fayetteville to celebrate our niece, Chyann's, 8th birthday. First of all, I totally claim her when her mom is not around and act like she is mine. I love her blonde lil' bob and her pretty blue eyes. She is perfect in every way and I hope someday my little girl looks and acts just like her- which is the perfect combination of sweet and sassy!
After the birthday party, we met up with my parents at the new stadium seated theater to see 10,000 B.C. Wow! It was super good! Really, I loved it. It was really historical, and I have a minor in history from the UofA, so it was right down my alley. It was also a romantic love story AND it takes place partway in Egypt. Oh man, oh my.. what a great flick for me! : ) The only problem was that the theater was packed, and we seriously found the only four seats left that were together, and we sat down so quickly that David ended up between my mom and I. By the end of the movie, David wanted to slap us silly because we kept leaning over his lap to whisper or ask each other questions when we didn't get something in the movie. Ha! David was so flustered he could have moved to the front row.
We met up with our ski buddies to discuss this coming week's ski trip! Yipee! We are ready and set to leave and ski in the Rockies for a week. I am so ready for a break from Arkansas scenery. I was born to ski, and me and the snow are tight. I am not a beach gal (Gasp! Shock!) I love the cold weather, so I am desperate to see some of that beautiful white stuff. There are 14 of us going, so it was so fun to meet and get our nerves revved up with trash talk about who is skiing on the bunny slopes and who is not. : ) We had shirts made to match with nicknames- which my friend Dawn calls "Fairground Clothes" because we will all be corny and match. Ha! We have a cabin in South Fork that is about 4,000 square feet, which gives every couple their own room. The front door is literally 14 feet from the Rio Grande. I can't wait to post on all the fun! : )
We went to our nephew, Brandon's, 4th birthday party at David's sister, Susan's, house. Brandon was just as cute as he could be with his Spongebob ice cream cake. By the way, I am a total convert to ice cream cakes at Dairy Queen. When he saw the tile Susan bought for him that I had painted, he pointed and said, "Cowboy hat!" It made my entire day. We got him a big, floor puzzle that is of dinosaurs. As a teacher, I feel morally obligated to purchase educational gifts. : )
Sunday I also put out my new monnogramed placemats that I bough at T.J. Maxx. I took them to be monogramed and decided on a lime to match the harlequin in the dining room. Well, needless to say, I am in love them. I find myself looking at everything to see if it could be monogramed. I asked David what he thought about taking our pillowcases in, and he kind of gave me a glazed over stare without speaking. I take that to mean my answer is like the line from Dumb and Dumber, "So, you're saying I have a chance??" : )
Have a great week!
