Weird Al in the house...

My daughter and her friends like to get on You Tube and watch videos. She's 11, so it's not anything inappropriate for her age. AND she cranks up the volume, so I can hear everything that she plays. If you have 11 minutes of your life to waste, try out "Weird Al" Yankovic - Trapped In The Drive-Thru.

She was singing Weird Al Yankovic - Fat while taking a shower the other day.

Last Chance - Memorial Day Sale!!

I completed another
Twilight Wristlet.

My husband came home from the grocery store Saturday and says "Kristen left her boyfriend, and her and Robert ran off to Italy together!!" Then he stands there looking at me in (mock) horror and surprise waiting for my response. My reply? Of COURSE they're in Italy together!! They just arrived there to film 'New Moon'. My husband cracked up laughing about the things those rags print, like we're really supposed to believe everything they say.

Yet another post about Books, CDs, and Movies...

I am currently reading Captain Wentworth's Diary. Persuasion is my favorite Jane Austen novel. I just can't get enough of it - I even love both versions of the movie. Love it!! This Diary is written from Frederick's perspective, and begins from when he arrives and first meets Anne and is rejected by her - a full eight years before Persuasion begins. I am enjoying getting to see this tender, loving side of Wentworth, and learning more about his and Anne's courtship and short lived engagement.

Currently listening to Sooner Or Later by Rex Smith because I'm a dork. I love the movie too. Any woman out there around the age of 40-45 should remember seeing Sooner Or Later back in 1979. Come on, you KNOW you watched it!!! (I have the books too, all 3 of the series, because I'm a dork.) It's also been my feel good go-to movie for the past year or so.

Last weekend I watched Lost In Austen. I know there are people out there who are true Jane Austen fans who would never dare to like this movie. In Lost In Austen, the story follows Amanda, who lives in present day London. Her favorite book is Pride and Prejudice, she reads it often, and actually has trouble finding (and keeping) a man in her life because none of them can live up to her ideal man, which is Mr. Darcy. Amanda ends up switching places (through time travel) with Elizabeth, and is literally dropped into the beginning of P&P!! Amanda immediately recognizes everyone and is well acquainted with exactly what is going on at any moment because she has read about it so many times. It's funny and very entertaining watching Amanda as she realizes that her actions have caused events from the book to change drastically!! If you have ever wished for Mr. Darcy for yourself, you must see this movie.

I love him!!!!!

I love him. I love him. I love him. Don't you love him, too?

Monday, Monday

Why couldn't I have been the one to find THIS??? Yeah, I'm just not that lucky. And I wasn't downtown hanging around outside hotels and looking into nearby trash cans. So the chances of me finding it were pretty slim to begin with.

Unproductive week...

I've had a busy week, but not Etsy (work) related stuff. My daughter's Show Choir Concert was last night. (She's the tall one here in this photo.) She's had practice after school Monday-Wednesday, and that along with doing homework with my son every evening, and my day is pretty much gone.

I did manage to finish up a few pouches from last weekend, so I will be listing those this evening. Now I am off to my daughter's school where I work part time. Today is Field Day and it is raining, so I'm sure the kids (and adults) will be grumpy.
