Thursday Randomness

First off, I have a LO to share...



And, can anyone guess where I might be going with this?



Leave a comment with your idea of what I might be using this for. I won't be able to tell you even if you guess correctly. ;0) But, a while back on Gina's blog, she had a little "pay it forward" RAK that I got selected for. So, now it's my turn to pay it forward! The first 3 commenters on this post will get a special little gift from me. I haven't quite figured out what I'll be giving away yet, but I'm thinking some handmade Valentine goodies! In turn, the 3 commenters selected will have to "pay it forward" to 3 other people. If you don't want to be included in the RAK, you can still leave a comment, just let me know that you don't want to be part of it. I thought it would just be something fun to do to brighten up the winter doldrums. :0)

So, how about 7 little random things from today...

1. My car needs cleaned out...DESPERATELY. I wish that it would warm up outside so I could get that accomplished.

2. I really started to wonder what happened to this band...



The Sundays are one of my all-time favorite bands, and they haven't had a new album in over 10 years now. So sad. If
you've never heard them before, I suggest you take a listen!

3. I got my taxes done today, and got a nice little refund...way more than I expected. I will be using some of the money to have a pergola built over the patio that I built myself last summer. I have grand plans for this area...sort of like an outdoor living room. I can't wait until it's done (sometime before the end of February)! I'll definitely share some pics. :0)

4. My mom's birthday is in a week, and I still have absolutely no idea what to get her. She's turning 60, so I feel like I should get her something extra special. But, my brain is just drawing a total blank.

5. I found out that when Bryan comes home, there is a military ball that it is mandatory we attend. I have to buy a dress...a formal one. I'm not talking little black dress formal. I'm talking so formal that it makes me uncomfortable. As much as I like bling on my art, I'm not into big sparkly gowns. At least, not for me. I am totally not looking forward to shopping for this.

6. I've been craving a breakfast burrito from Whataburger all week. I miss that restaurant...even if it is fast food. Maybe they'll have one in Alabama, but I think it's just a Texas thing. :0(

7. I just planned a quick little long weekeng trip to visit my great aunt and uncle at the beach house they rent in South Carolina. I can't wait to go! It has been years since I've seen them, and they've never met my kids. I'll be driving down there with my aunt and uncle, so that will be double fun!

Okay, I am off to watch Superbad. I hope everyone had a great week!

YAY for taxes, birthdays, weekend trips, Superbad.... and paying it forward! Can't wait to see pics of the pergola. Sounds awesome!

Ellen said...

I love The Sundays! Watched SuperBad last weekend--very funny. Just finished watching "Along Came Polly." Really funny. My mom says my car would have roaches if it wasn't a car. It's impossible to keep it clean with two kids!

Okay so my guess for your woman is a lamp decorated like a fairy or something. Ha! Like the leg lamp only this time you get the whole body! Yeah baby. Once again, love reading your blog. Like the lo too. www.scrapthisandthat.blogspot.com

love the layout. love tax refunds. love superbad. i'll play along with the rak. i believe the 2nd week of feb is rak week anyway. hmm. formal. i shop online like a giant freak so i will keep my eyeballs out. it's not big enough to be a dress form...so are you making a lamp? a jewelry tree?

Jill Deiling said...

hey there! my guess is youre going to make a dress for that form.
i hope you have fun at your aunt and uncles! sounds like fun!
I'm sorry you have to go buy a formal dress. i dont like formal dresses either, but I bet youll look sooo pretty all dressed up like a princess!
congrats on getting a nice tax return! I just did mine too. having kids is really nice when it comes to tax return time, hehe.
I'm loving your new layout!
I hope youre having a great week girly!

Wow! LOVE the Sundays! I haven't listened to them in ages. Now I'm on a mission to find my cd or maybe it was a cassette ; ) Love your layout! Eeeek, good luck on shopping for a dress. That event sounds painful, but atleast you'll have your man by your side.

My car is in the same boat as yours. but I don't get it back 'til my hubby buys his new truck, which won't happen till we get our tax returns. It's soooo close! can't wait to have my car back!

I hope you enjoy superbad!
