Well, here's what's been going on: I made MJ buy a few things Friday. MADE HER. Just kidding. She got this great little cabinet at the Great Estate with sliding glass doors for her hallway in entry way of her home. SO cute!
Then we went to Crossroads Delicatessen and saw this guy:
We had to call Kirst. She saw him at a party she was attending once?
And he made her throw up in her mouth a little bit.
So we called her. And she got sick all over again. Sorry 'bout that, Kirst.
Then MJ and I went to Homegoods and bought a few "needed" items. I got a new "vintage" wall phone for the kitchen:
and an urn for my CRAZY Rosemary plant. I've never been able to keep Rosemary alive indoors before, but this one is happy as a clam here! I'd show you the photo, but blogger won't let me load that photo.
MJ bought soooooo many things: 2 beautiful pans, a few desk items...what else?
We also decided to make cork/blackboards for our selves over at Kirst's house.
Because she wasn't there to object.
I've been really wanting a HUGE one like the ones at Ballard Designs, but I just can't pay that kind of money right now (or maybe ever). And I found a hardware store near us that will order in sheets of galvanized steel so that I can paint it with blackboard paint and have a magnetic blackboard.
Ahhhhh. I dream big, don't I, internets? Yes, I do. We should take bets on whether or not this will all happen.
Okay, in my last post I was reminded about what a pain in the patootie all the Fly Lady emails are. You are all right. I end up spending way too much time on the computer reading those mails. Even just going to the website is a lot of reading. Soooo.....I've bought a years' worth of organizing check lists from Motivated Moms.
Mrs. Jones had this on her blog and I finally took the plunge and bought it. It was a whopping $8. The end result is something like Fly Lady, but in a short-and-sweet checklist format. If Mrs. Jones says it's a good idea? Believe her, it is. She's one smart cookie.
And on Sunday's list of things to do? It told me to pamper myself. So I did. I gave myself a little manicure! Humph! So THERE!
I'll try and be a better blogger this week, I swear. And a better e-mailer. I'm trying. I really am.
