sunday evening chatter

 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!

Your posts always make me smile and LAUGH. I can't believe the realistic barbie kitten. Now, I'll have to go look for this. Your Mooshka doll would be the perfect addition to a dollhouse. I was wondering if you found shoes after our earlier conversation this morning. Maybe if you start wearing those sandals, the winter and snow will go away faster.

HUGS!!

Cute stuff! I don't like shoes either, but I need some for work. I keep looking and I can't find any I like. I think I'll wait until sandal season and then I won't have to worry about it!
Have a great week, Viv!

I never seem to find much at Target...the wreath is really cute! Gotta wait til payday to go shopping crossing my fingers there will still be some next weekend!! Crazy about the real life Barbies and their pets! Too funny! Happy Sunday!

OMG-What will Barbie come up with next- a period and mini-pads? Just crazy!!! Love the wreath and have not seen that one before. It will be really cute when you get done "dressing it". That little doll is really cute, too. I love walking through the toy department...preferably WITHOUT kids! lol
Have a great Sunday night, Viv. xo Diana

I just love to go down the toy aisles! I have several tiny La La Loopsies in a little doll house. So, I love toys, too. I brought in a child sized cupboard to redo for more toys! Oh gosh, it's great to know I am not the only one who loves to play. I have some wooly clogs that I wish I could wear to work!

Oh boy! Looks like I better check out those little dolls at Target. Sooo cute! Whatever with the Barbie Pets though! LOL Think I'll pass on those. But of course there would come a day when you could buy a toy pooping cat!

Oh what a cute little dollie and I LOVE that wreath! Yes, sometimes I look at something and say "I could make that" but what the heck, I will buy it anyway! Good for you getting your Spring wreath! Have a blessed week dear friend, HUGS!

Diane Mars said...

Viv the Wreath is really darling and I'm sure by the time you buy all the parts to make it it would be costly. I have been finding good shoe selection at Ross for Less not sure if you have that store but if you do it's a great place to find deals.

OOOOOOOH! I LOVE your new goodies, and now I'm ALSO hungry for steak & potatoes. Grrrrr! I do the same thing at Target! Remind me to tell you what I bought there because I was so freakin' desperate to own a cat. LOL! I miss YOU, Vivvy. Look for my new blog (titled: Of Course I'd Rather be at Barnes and Noble) I'm using my first name Nadua and my last, of course, Naconi. LOVE YOU! P.S. Pet the kitty people for me!

Lori said...

Such a cute little doll and wreath and garland, too! Oh, the Barbie stuff made me crack up. Amazing! Oh, shoes...what a problem. Used to wear high heels, but can't do that anymore. Have a great week! (Thank you for the ideas on the house stamp - love them!)

I hate shoes. I buy mostly crocs online. They are comfy and they have so many styles and under $40 . I used to only wear informatics but love crocs more.
I love the little doll and wreath.
Have a good week.

Legos are my weakness, especially the girlie ones!
