So we were out and about yesterday, gathering the various things the boy needs for camp, and we stopped at Goodwill last to find a sweater for him. Not only did we find a sweater, but we scored a bread maker for $4.99. All the parts, and today, we discovered it works PERFECTLY:

Waiting for it to finish was excruciating, the smell was SO GOOD. We had some hot, and then some later when it cooled. The only downside? We DEFINITELY need a decent bread knife! *HEE*

And just a bit ago, in an email from [ profile] wandaxmaximoff, I found this ridiculously cute pair of shoes:

And it kills me a little bit that they're all the way in England! I'm trying to decide whether or not I'm willing to have her pick them up and send them! Went to their website and found this gorgeous pair, too:

I have to pack up the boy's duffel bag for the week yet, and bake another loaf of bread before bed, so I'm off. I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend! ♥

Feels like a while since I posted, even though it was only last Friday...

There's shoe porn under the cut somewhere. )

7. Huh. I thought I had more things to say, but I'll be damned if I can remember what they are. Guess y'all are off the hook for now. XD.

1. I've been lax about commenting the last five days or so, but bear with me - I'll get there. It's been a ridiculously busy week so far.

And I'm forgetful on top of it. Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It's the world's longest car, I swear. It reaches from Beale Street to Washington Square. And once you get in it To go where you're going, You simply get out, 'cause you're there. )

12. OK, I think I'm out of stuff to say for the moment. I think the majority of this needs to go behind a cut, because HELLO, RUN-ON-AT-THE-MOUTH DISEASE. Or I suppose that'd be fingers, since I'm typing, yes? *snerk* Either way...I used Shel Silverstein's poem "Longmobile" as the cut text, in case anyone was wondering.

1. Feeling better today - definitely a good thing. :)

2. Dinner tonight at Bunny and John's, and kiddo will probably sleep over, so quiet evening! YAY!

3. Dad is out of the hospital. He was released yesterday shortly after noon. The docs have concluded that the chest pains were NOT his heart, thankfully. However, they don't know what DID cause the pains, so we're at a loss, there. Dad has a regular doc appt coming up soon, if not today (because I'm really bad with time, OK?), and hopefully he'll find out what he needs to do to be able to continue walking, as that's the more imminent threat right now.

4. My friend I mentioned earlier now has an LJ! I'm so pleased, I can't wait to show her the ropes. She may yet come to DW, too, but I'm STOOPID and messed up the web address. *rolls eyes at self* Either way, I'm glad she has an outlet available to her! Next step: teaching her how to navigate a forum. XD.

5. You guys, these shoes have HEART-SHAPED HEELS!! ♥♥♥

Found over on Fluevog.

6. Just renewed a bunch of books from the library online - handy little tool. Finally finished The Alchemist (Paulo Coelho) the other night. It was such a wonderful book; I'll need to procure my own copy of it. If you've read it, I'd like to chat with you about it.

7. Friday, I love you. Thank you for FINALLY dragging your ass here, because I am so beyond ready for the weekend!

A few things this morning, and of course, first things first:

[ profile] coonassblondie has a birthday today!

Happy, happy birthday, Angel!
I hope your day is wonderful!

Life, the Universe and Everything )

7. I think I'm going to put Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium on the iPod this afternoon while I work. It just feels like that kind of day. :)

It feels like there's 8436546421873541 things going on, and going wrong. I know it happens to other people too, but just-.

This and That )

OK, that's all. I think...

1. Seriously. Check out the Owl City album "Ocean Eyes." The music is gorgeous, and the lyrics are wonderful, if quirky and outright dorky and full of puns at times. I love the whole album, but my favorites are Fireflies and Vanilla Twilight, and I really love the end of Hello Seattle as well.

Sarah. I think you would like Vanilla Twilight.

2. OK, so this weekend was actually pretty good, factoring out the headache. We bought our Christmas tree and some ornaments for it, as well as a tree topper (a colorful star that lights up - it reminded hubby of what he had growing up, and I caved because I didn't mind it). We also got gift cards for my parents and some decent cookie sheets for our kitchen.

I was looking for soup crocks on Saturday as well, ones that I can use in the oven, the microwave, the dishwasher. I found a set of four at Bed, Bath and Beyond, but they wanted THIRTY BUCKS for it. I said hell no and found a set of four online at Collections, Etc., lids and all, on clearance for $7.97. We found a code for free shipping, and voilá, a good set of soup crocks for under ten bucks. I'm totally ordering another set.

This, of course, means I can finally make that french onion soup recipe I've been wanting to make. We even picked up some good brandy for it; I can't wait to get my crocks so I can make my daddy his beloved french onion soup. Note to self: find out what gruyere cheese is, and see if you like it better than muenster.

3. Collections, Etc.! Oh, my gosh. Oh, oh, my gosh. I love it. I was adding things to my wish list right, left and center. It's, like, fifty-two items long. I found SO. MUCH. apple stuff (I have a thing for decorating my kitchen in apples), and can't wait to start collecting it all. There's so much great stuff there; check it out, for real.

4. Picked up these shoes at Payless on Sunday. I didn't even know they were called "Kimberly Mary Jane" pumps till I just went looking for the picture of them! Hee! Anyway, they are VERY comfortable and perfect for work, and I love them. AND breaking them in isn't as much of a pain as I was thinking it would be! YAY!

5. My headache was gone when I woke up this morning. This is a lovely thing.

6. The light rail is up and working now out by me, so my ride is trying it out this week, which means I'm reverting back to my later hours. I think she'll end up doing it from now on, so it's back to 8:30-5:00 for me. This is OK though; I love having that extra half hour in the morning, I love going to work when it's light out, and don't really mind coming home a little later. And I like it when hubby brings me in and picks me up. More in gas money, I suppose, but we've always been drivers.

I'd take the light rail, too, but I just don't do well going places on my own.

7. We're going to try getting down to Red Wing sometime before Christmas to go see Beth and Dana's new house and visit with them. XD.

8. I think that's everything for now...just wanted to give a bit more than I managed yesterday. :)

Why do I keep doing this to myself?

I can't stop mooning over the shoes here. I should really, really start putting a little bit away here and there, because I would love these shoes.

Especially these ones - these are my favorites, I would wear them with everything.
*sighs* Aren't they gorgeous?

They have a couple in different colors on sale:
But I can't really decide whether I like them better in this cherry and brown, or in black and brown. And really, why bother with either one when the pair I really want is that fabulous yellow up above?

Ooh, found these on sale, too:
Heel's a bit high, but they're cute. Not sure I like them so much in the brown and blue, but still...

1. Seriously. I think it's outside, but GOD, I want it to stop. Matt can't hear it. HOW?! Amanda and Mikey and I all hear it. EDIT: IT WAS THE CEILING FAN/LAMP IN THE DINING ROOM. AARRGGHH.

Other Stuff, Cut for Length )

*Yes, I am aware that I have issues. *sighs and rolls eyes at self*

1. One of my friends on Facebook had this to say:

So... the 'Miss USA' competition is on TV tonight. This is the one that doesn't want to burden it's contestants with a TALENT (remember kids... looks are EVERYTHING!). Given the choice, I'd rather let a buffalo poop in my ear than watch this.


He's so right, and I just felt the need to share because it was amusing. XD.

2. I'm feeling a little better. I'm still congested and have a cough, and I still feel like something's pressing on my chest, but at least it's not as bad as it was. Hubby refused to kill me and put me out of my misery when I begged him to do so on Thursday, so I guess this is OK.

I still hate being sick.

Just sayin'.

3. Downside to living on the third floor with a ten-year-old boy: I've felt every single step he's taken in this apartment since we moved because he WALKS LIKE AN ELEPHANT. *rolls eyes*

Also, he scares the CRAP out of me because he can't stay off that balcony and feels the need to jump on it and lean on the railing and Christ on a pogo stick, he's going to give me a damn heart attack. I'M ONLY 31.

Hope your day was fabulous!! XOXOXO

5. Updated my reading list, as I've now finished both City of Bones and City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare - who, incidentally, has an LJ and has introduced me to some of the most expensive shoes I've ever seen, but MAN, are they awesome! I want so many, it's got to be wrong somehow. Check it out, these shoes are so fun.

6. That's all for now - it's bedtime. Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. ;)
