TGIF & Weekend Blessings


Tomorrow is pay day...YES!

So, after I go to the bank to pay a few bills--as one of our student workers says, "I don't want to be a big kid anymore"--I plan to take my mom and Caity to our favorite used book store in town, "The Cactus Wren."

My mom's b-day is on the 28th this month and I'm hoping to get some ideas on what to give her. I'm clueless--and she won't tell me what she wants. Well, she wants a Leif Garrett movie from the 70's which I plan to purchase via ebay, but that's not much of a gift. Especially for my mom--I want to get her something EPIC (but affordable). After the bookstore we want to check out the new vintage clothing store in town. After that, it's off to the candy shop that I haven't been to yet. Imagine that. Anyway...and then we'll probably check out the farmer's market since neither of us have ventured there either. Geez we're lame sheltered.

I'm also working on a upcycled T-shirt project...and I hope to finish that this weekend. It's going to be a very busy, very productive weekend. BRING. IT. ON.

On another note:
Here's what the husband & I did for dinner last night.
I really need to work on my transitions...
I skip around from topic to topic sometimes. I hope you don't think I'm schizophrenic.
We've recently made a habit of eating dinner in front of the computer so we can watch Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations.
LOVE this show.
This is how I like to eat Teryaki anything...all mixed up in a bowl with extra sauce.

Cory likes to eat his veggies separate from everything else...or like to eat his chicken or meat separate. I'm not sure which it is, but he doesn't mix any of them.

It was delicious.

Hopefully I'll remember to take my camera along on my adventures this weekend with my sis & mom so I can share them with you.

Until then, have a super awesome weekend!

I love up-cycling clothes I just finished a shirt today and I love getting more ideas. Cant wait to see your up-cycle.

3 things:
1: I want to see the upcycled shirt-- (I'm not really sure what that means, I'm out of the loop, but sounds cool)

2: You're reading the girl who played with fire? I watched The girl with the dragon tattoo and I have to admit it was much too much for me, I think the violence got to me, but then again I'm a baby and don't even like watching those nature shoes or video clips of a lion eating an antelope!

3: I just realized I wasn't following your blog. I seriously just hit myself upside the head-- how was I not following this greatness? I guess it all makes sense now, I was wondering last week why your posts weren't showing up on my reader... but now I gots it, we're all good :)
