How does the weekend go by so fast? really didn't do much at all this weekend.. Yesterday I cooked and puttered a bit. I had done most of my house cleaning on Friday morning before I went to work. We had the kids over for a belated birthday dinner for Vanessa last night. I cooked two big sirloin roasts, fresh broccoli and cauliflower, with mashed potato's and gravy. And then to top it off, a very yummy carrot cake with homemade cream cheese frosting. We had a good time. I mostly played with the babies. Had to laugh because the kids (the big ones) had some interesting conversations and decided that they must be getting old as they were talking about education, politics and religion! lol!
Today Ive done pretty much nothing. Except that I ran to batavia. I wanted to look for shoes and a coat.. but I ended up buying only this tiny little doll at target... and the wreath and flower garland below! none of these things did I need. we did go to a shoe store and I did look at shoes and tried a few pairs on.. but nothing really excited me. I may as well wait for good weather and buy sandals! lol! I truly do not like shoes. I usually wear clogs.. but I recently gave my old comfy ones away to someone who needed them more then I did at that moment and Ive been wearing stupid work boots since! LOL! I have lots of sandals and a couple pair of sneaks, a few pair of dress shoes and one other pair of clogs that I hate. Im not a shoe person at all. I prefer bare feet. Oh well.. I'll find some eventually. or.. summer will come!
So isn't this stuff cute?? I couldn't pass up the wreath. I passed up one like it last year and kept wishing I had bought one. would certainly be easy enough to make, but then Id have to buy all the different color yarns and the foam base, and I would have spent the same amount of money. sometimes we just have to buy what we see! I'm going to take the flower garland apart and glue them on the wreath. I'm also going to make some leaves to go on it and one of two felted birdies! It'll be cute. I'll show you when I finish.
And the little doll? omg.. you should see them! There are a bunch of them. I'm like a little kid in there and I want them all! Do you walk through the toy department when you shop? my daughter and I ALWAYS do and even before there were babies to buy for we did. we always have to check the barbie isle. Speaking of Barbies.. did you know that they make a barbie kitten that drinks water and pees in a litter box that it comes with? It also comes with the litter (sand) and a kitty scoop and little garbage can! and if that's not enough... they also make a dog that poops and comes with a pooper scooper!! kid you not.. wait.. I'm going to find pics of them to show you...
I know, Crazy right? Actually pretty ridiculous!
OK.. Ive babbled enough for now.
all of the secret leprechauns that joined up have their secret partners and should be ready to roll! if I left anyone out and you haven't heard from me please contact me asap. but I'm pretty sure I got everyone. There are 11 girls playing.
so toodles for now. hubby's working this evening so I think I'm going to find a movie, make some popcorn and cuddle up with figgy and frannie on the couch!
have a great week!
