My New Craft

So here is my new craft. These are knitting needles that I have decorated. They are pretty cute. My favorite are the little pink roses. But I also really like the snakes. I think I might try to get my local yarn store to sell them in their shop, cause they're just too cute not to share. I had a pretty good time making them. What do you think?

Esty is Arty

So Ive been searching around a lot on Etsy - a great craft site where thousands of people from all over sell thier crafts. You can search any word you can think of and you will find crafts that match them. So here are some of my natural search choices:
* I highly recomend you click on these links, they are really funny*

Can you say VA-CAY

So the rumors are true. We will be in Utah June 5th - 8th. Just a shorty to see the fam and Matt's grampa will be in town also, so we thought he deserved a little visit from his favorite granddaughter-in-law. No super plans or anything just to hang out. If you would like to put your plan suggestions down for consideration please do so in the comments section. You better make them good people because we don't have much time. If any one suggest IKEA it's an automatic yes.

Very Hot (sizzle)

Oh geeze this weekend was a scorcher. It got over 90 on Saturdays at the stupid yard sale. It was pretty much a bust. I got heat stroke and about 40 bucks. So not worth it. So now all my crap is in my trunk and I need to dump it off at the Goodwill. We went and saw Ironman. It was a really good movie. Lots of flying and chasing and killing of bad guys. We also played a little penny slots and went to dinner last night. No surprise, we did not hit the jackpot. I think this weekend they will open out pool. I hope so for their sake or they will have a lot of complaints from people because it is just going to get hotter.

Day Three I sleep in!

Ok So today I wasn't able to pull a mile out of the treadmill but I will tonight. Matt got called out at about 12:30AM so he was on the phone and the lights were on and the cats were running around so I was awake now and couldn't go back to sleep. So I stayed up until like 2AM. Matt got home at about 6AM and my alarm went off at 7:30AM and there was no way I was leaving behind my warm bed and cute tired husband for the stinky gym. But I actually went twice yesterday, once in the morning and then again when I got off work so that put me ahead.
I have gathered all my stuff to sell in the yard sale and fills up our den floor. I didn't realize how much crap I hang on to. Like I have a whole grocery bag full of bath and body works lotions and gels and stuff that I have never used. Plus I have a load of clothes that I need to get out of the house. I will use my proceeds to benefit my Vegas Trip fund. Our yard sale is on Sunday and it supposed to be 90! Wowee.
I also already have signed up for all my classes for next semester and had my financial aide processed so hopefully I am all set up for that.

Hello Treadmill..long time no see

OK so by a miracle of Jesus himself I actually dragged my but out of bed early and went to the gym. I ran, yes, ran a mile and did some elliptical. I am going to go everyday this week and next. Try to get in the swing of it. Also I realized I am an awesome wedding planner this weekend. I helped my friend find a dress for $99! Can you believe it. She has a tight wedding budget but seriously it is still so fun to help her. I am pretty sure that wedding planning is my calling, but I'm not quiting my day job anytime soon, if you know what I mean. I have my last final tonight and them I'm done. I don't have to go back until August 25th. We've had a vacation snag though. Matt doesn't get his days off until the last week in August, the same time I have to go back to school. It's a real bummer, I don't know what we will do at this point. We are hoping to go back to Utah for memorial day and maybe take a day or two extra there. This weekend was pretty warm and nice. I am doing a yard sale this Saturday with my friend at work so I deep cleaned my closet.deficit

what a busy little weekend

This weekend was just really nice. The weather was perfect except for a little rain on Sunday. On Saturday we met up with our friends Chris and Jazzy. Matt works with Chris at the the shop they share with another company. They are a pretty fun couple. They have a 18 month old son who is just a doll. He has blond curly hair and is an little angle. We went up to Virginia City to see the chili cookout. It was kind of a bust though because by the time we got there most the chili was gone. But we had a good time anyhow. After that we went out lunch and then to the movies. It was pretty fun. Sunday was a little rainy and I had a paper I had to write so we stayed home. Matt actually ended up having to go all the way to Tahoe to work but since it was ice out side he didn't mind. I am done with finals next week. I have 3 on Thursday and then one next Monday. then I will be free free free. I will go back to my 10-54 hours at work which will hopefully give me time to start working out in the mornings. It has been really nice this week so far at 75 yesterday and about 80 today.
