I piggy-backed on my brother and sister-in-law's purchase from PaperMart (they were buying ribbon for their wedding) to snag 100 yards (yards!) of white satin ribbon for less than eight cents a yard. Had I not tag-teamed with them, shipping costs would have severely lessened the goodness of my deal -- PaperMart likes bulk orders and the West Coast.

So far today, I have watched a couple hours of the news, made pancakes, and watched a movie. I just changed out of my pajamas at noon and have some potato soup simmering on the stove. Long live the snow day!

Please, feast your eyes! These are my new boots. They are Steve Maddens, purchased from TJ Maxx tonight for $40. Boo-yah.

Bonus: The Web site has puzzles that will either help you feel smart or stupid.
These cookies are fantastic for two reasons: 1) They are tasty. Really tasty. Really really. 2) Olive oil is good for your heart!

Hiking. Amongst the graceful redwoods in Muir Woods.

While this frog is all kinds of redonkulous (and was suspended from my tree by no doing of my own), the laughter she caused was certainly a good welcome home gift.

Just think how much joy and satisfaction you will feel if you guess the right one. I'll post the answer later this week. Good luck...you're going to need it.

Genius. Brilliant. Remarkable. Life-changing. Do it.
Isn't this scary looking? I totally have a Blair Witch Project corner of my basement, too. It's Halloween year round in these parts.

I like audio books for two reasons: They make time go so quickly and I can selfishly add another book to my Shelfari list without doing much (I really like to track the books I've read. Before Shelfari, I just kept track on a spreadsheet.)
Couple more thoughts: I get my audio books from the library which means zero dollars out of my pocket. So far, I've just stuck to easy-reading books -- the ones that require minimal brainpower.

These should look just lovely in white with some new hardware, no? Based on my current rate of progress, they should be completed just in time for the next presidential election. whoopee!

Nope, I wouldn't mind one bit. I'd gladly come home to a pile of packages on my front stoop every night.

I pulled it off the shelf at my parents' house a couple weeks ago to wear for pajamas. And then took pictures of it because it's that cool.

Since I can't show you my book in all it's paper glory (you know I would have showed it to you), this little slideshow will have to suffice.
slideshow and get a message that says something to the extent of "the photo book has been deleted," please know that this is a lie!

I hit up Zenni Optical again for glasses on the cheap...$17.90 total with shipping! I found many pairs that I thought would make good sunglasses, but my eyes are so freakishly close together, that my pupillary distance was too small to order those frames. I ended up with a petite pair of aviators. Suh-weet!

You can imagine my shock on Monday when I went to pick it and realized it was the size of a super ball. It's bite-sized. Hmpf.

I'm doing my part to make it go big.

So, it was with art on the brain, that I found an awesome postcard in the mail this evening. The postcard is awesome 1) because the art on the front is fantastic, and 2) because my friend Kristie sent it to me out of the blue from far away.
My new artwork is on display in my kitchen right now.

*I found some nasty little termites in one of my trees a couple weekends ago. They had me feeling equal parts paranoid and annoyed. Oh, but you best believe they got their very own chemical treatment soon after their presence was known.
