Crazy Cool

So lately I've been crazy busy. This past week FLEW by.
On Wednesdays i take the girls to awanas and then since there's nothing for me to do I usually go to walmart and do the grocery shopping. This past week I stopped at goodwill b/c the bub needed some new pants. (she's growing sooo tall lately) I walked away with much much more. for only $24 I got my DH 2 new pairs of jeans (one is from the gap), a pair of sketcher shoes and a sweater (also gap) for me, and a pair of dress boots and 2 pairs of pants for the bub. Nothing for the bead but she got stuff last time. I love it! for what I would've paid for one pair of jeans or shoes i got 7 items. Gotta love it!

This Friday I put some knitting bling up in the LYS. I wasn't sure if Margaret would want to hang up the bling or put it in a basket or what so Thursday I packaged some up with tabs so they could be hung or put in something on display. So now if you're in the area and you want to pick some up stop by the store and get some bling! If you don't live in PA I have some available at my etsy store. Contact me for shipping outside of the US. (I do ship outside of the US i just have to get you a price)
Another exciting thing that has happened is I joined the Etsymom street team. What that means is I've joined a group of moms who have etsy stores. We support each other by browsing, buying and referring people to their shops and also we have some forums where we can inspire each other, help with our shops and encourage each other with mom-related things. here's a quote from the etsymom blog "EtsyMom Street Team is dedicated to promoting women artists and crafters who also share the joy of being mothers. Some of our members work from home, some work from other places, but we all share a love of creating beautiful, useful, artful things. Our goal is to create a forum where these creative EtsyMoms can inspire each other, discuss our work, share the success of juggling kids at home, with housework, jobs and creating for our etsy shops, as well as marketing ideas for, advertising and promotional opportunities, and maybe make a few friends along the way."
If you'd like to join here's a link. If you'd like to buy handmade you can go to etsy and search etsymom or you can click here as I've done it for you! there are some great things in that group! go take a look! It's super exciting.

For Project 365 I've decided to also photograph the ABC's. One a week. My first week was this week so....A is for anniversary. Friday was our 10th anniversary! My Dh and I got a whirlpool room at the local Hampton Inn. It's something we do every year. Well every year since he's been out of the army. We figured we spent so many annv apart and away from each other we're going to make it a tradition to spend it together in the nicest way possible. so my In-laws had the girls sleep over and we got to "sleep" over at a hotel. Pretty nice. we also went out to dinner and watched a movie that we wouldn't recommend. We went to see the watchmen and from the previews we thought it would be a good action movie, maybe a little bloody and some swearing. maybe if you follow the comic book maybe you know what to expect. here's my short overview:The one guy walks around the whole movie naked. Yes he's CGI but he's anatomically correct (if not a little bigger than normal) . and then there's some sex scenes in there that leave nothing to the imagination. I guess we're used to watching PG-13, PG and G movies and had NO idea that R ratings showed so much. I personally think they pushed it a bit. And the storyline was ok, it seemed to jump around a bit not really explaining some things like the should've been. The bloody parts some were normal and others were just weird. like one part there's this kid he jumps on another kid punches him and then bites his cheek. totally gross! but i guess b/c it's a comic book it probably was written in there like that and it just translates more gross on screen. I'm seriously wondering why we didn't leave the theater. We felt really bad b/c some guy brought his 6-8 year old little kid in there. I'm sure he thought like us, it'd be an action/superhero flick nothing too major. that poor kid will probably have nightmares.
I think if they took out the porno-ish parts it would've been better. but that's my taste. Anyways we wouldn't recommend it to anyone. it was kinda funny to see all the comic book geeks crawling out of their parent's basement to watch the movie.
