Why am I tearing up over a gift registry????!!!
I was looking at my little baby brother's gift registry for Bed, Bath, & Beyond today.
I was glad to see that his fiance put her foot down and added something other than red, to some of their requests. In their Target registry EVERYTHING is red, my brother's favorite color. (Obviously 49er red.) So, at the BBB registry there is some blue, which is my future SIL's favorite color and I was proud of her for getting that in. Then I saw that they put those real fluffy, comfortable looking bath robes in their request. I saw how much they were and briefly thought of how much I would love to give those to them and I saw that they were already "fulfilled." And I got teary and almost started crying!
What is up with that?
Maybe because someone else loves them very much. Maybe because something like bath robes is important for newlyweds. Everyone always focuses on the practical stuff and to me the bathrobes are one of those everyday things that are important and fun. They could sit around in their comfy robes, eating strawberries w/whip cream, drinking a little sparkling cider... Just sayin'
It's weird how different things affect me.
Of course, it could just be that I was upset that someone beat me to it and now I have to figure out what to else to get them!

Get to it

Hurricane: Mom, is that your brakes making noise?
Me: Yes it is.
Hurricane: Well, maybe you should replace them.

Ooh la la

Susiebadooziewanted to see the weirdest song on my ipod and I couldn't decide between these two:

I also couldn't figure out how to make the pictures go in the right direction!!!
Anyway, before I met the hubbs I thought I was pretty well rounded as far as my muscial tastes went. I like rap, hair bands, and alternative like the Cure. Then I met my hubbs and all that went out the window. He likes heavy metal and so I learned to appreciate some of his music. KISS being one I never thought I would listen to, much less like any of their music. "That Smell" I heard on an episode of Laguna Beach and I couldn't get it out of my head so it was downloaded and it's pretty weird for me to have. The End.

The Hurricane came through our house and threw spongebob onto the ceiling. It's a sticky spongebob that clings to the walls and such. Now the Hurricane is waiting for spongebob to come down. So he sat on his bed, reading his comic book, every few minutes looking up to see if he was ready to come down. This silly thing kept him occupied for I don't know how long, until of course I discovered how cute he was sitting there so quietly and took a picture. This gets filed under the "who knew buying hundreds of dollars worth of fun toys would never compare to the fun of wrapping paper and bubble wrap?"
(it's the small yellowish spot at the very top of the picture)

Fools Rush In

I haven't posted in a while because I've been busy getting my house ready for company. I have all these little projects I kept saying I would get to and never did, so when the hubbs wanted to have people over, I decided I needed to get everything done. All at once. Marathon cleaning, priming, painting, hanging pictures, rearranging furniture, & handing out candy!
*side note* I don't care how old the kids are that trick or treat. I went when I was a senior in high school and it was so much fun. I do however take exception to these kids that don't even put forth an effort. One boy about 13 or so came to my door w/blue hair and that's it. Then he had the nerve to be irritated w/me when I asked him what his costume was, to which he replied he couldn't think of anything. I told him he should of tried and he points to his little sister dressed in a fairy costume and says, "she's got a costume." Well, then I guess SHE gets the candy! (/rant)
Anyway, here are some pictures of my activities over the past week:
The flower painting is an original from my grandma.

I finally got my purses up the way I want. These are almost all of my Dooney & Bourkes. I have about 10 more purses to get up and I need more shelves! The only bad thing is the hubbs can see how many I really have and he will definitely be less tolerant of any more purchases. I'm going to have to do a lot of sweet talking!
(I don't know why I can't get that *I* out from the middle!)

This is just the begining of my cross collection.
