Ooh, How Pinteresting & What I'm Loving Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday! 

Let's link up with Michelle and Jamie

I'm LOVING my little games on my iphone. I'm addicted to all these fun little games. This week I'm loving Candy Crush and Castle Story.

I'm LOVING all the previews for The Great Gatsby. It looks so good! I think I'm going to have to re-read the book between now and when the movie comes out. 

I'm LOVING all the research I'm doing on cars. I'm excited at the thought of buying a new car in the spring. I'm waaaay ahead of myself but it's fun to look now.

I'm LOVING Michelle Obama. She's A-MAY-ZING. What and incredible first lady/person in general. I heart her. Just as much as I heart Beyonce...and that's saying A LOT for me.

I'm LOVING Pinterest!

Cute & Cozy Lapghan/Blanket - FINISHED!

So. OF COURSE. I finished my "side" project before I finished my main project.
and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. 

Pretty eh?!

I think I might sell it...I think it'll look fantab in my future Etsy Shop.
What do you think?

If you're a maker {not a buyer}... here's where I found the PATTERN.


Tale # 639: In West Philadelphia...

Tale #639
Have I ever told you about the time ....  
My life got flipped, turned upside down 
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there 
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-air 

In west Philadelphia born and raised 
On the playground where I spent most of my days 
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool 
And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school 
When a couple of guys, they were up to no good 
Started making trouble in my neighbourhood 
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared 
And said "You're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-air" 

I whistled for a cab and when it came near the 
License plate said "fresh" and had a dice in the mirror 
If anything I could say that this cab was rare 
But I thought nah, forget it, yo homes to Bel-air! 

I pulled up to a house about seven or eight 
And I yelled to the cabby "Yo, homes smell you later!" 
Looked at my kingdom I was finally there 
To sit on my throne as the prince of Bel-air

 Yup. True story yo.

Tale #218:::Being Nice is Hard!

Tale #218

Have I ever told you about the time .... 
I was SO nice to people I exhausted myself!? 
Did you see my tale last Monday? 
If not click here so this post makes a lillll more sense...

So. I'm just going to go ahead and say it...being nice is exhausting!!!
OMG. All this smiling and friendly gestures towards wearing this gal out! 

See, since I had been at my other job for so long a grunt and a loud sigh was typical of my morning routine. 
Now...not only do I have to be at work EARLIER than I'm use to...I have to smile and be nice!
and it's tiring.

I think I forgot what it was like to be nice to my co-workers!

Last week I had been running all over the place meeting friendly faces, learning my new role....and I have to admit -- I like this job. It's right up my alley! And so far it seems worth going to bed at night passing out and getting up the next morning to do it again.

week #1 done....
week #2 ... just beginning!

Tale #124: MOI vs. Fish Tank Rock

First of all - Today is February 4th - which's my Mom's Bday!
Happy Birthday Mom.
Love ya!

Hello Hello!

Welcome to"A Tale to Tell..." Link-up party!

This is the place you can come to every Monday to share your tale! It can be about anything your big ol' heart desires.

Have a tale? Well share it!

Tale #124

Have I ever told you about the time .... 
I got a fish tank rock stuck up my nose.
no lie.
I was one of THOSE kids.
I don't know what possessed me to stick a fish rock up there...but I did...and it got stuck.
{photo via}
I remember it was one of the summer days I was spending at a cousin's house (i.e. my parents weren't around).
Who's to say if I was "talked into doing it" or if I was just really that smart.

But the rock went up the nostril.

and the more I tried to get it out ... the further UP it went.

Once the panic set in and I realized I MIGHT have to tell an adult what I did (which was a TERRIFYING thought)...the rock went further UP...

and UP...
and UP...

Once I realized that maybe a finger wasn't a good way to get it out I started to do a bunch of nose blowing and snot rockets (lovely visual right)?

That little booger eventually came out.

I can't make this stuff up.

That's my tale. The time I got a fish tank rock stuff up my nose.
