cause for celebration!
what a slacker i have been! but i am HAPPY to report… all of our artwork for CHAsummer2006 is TURNED IN…and RIGHT on time. deadline met… frankly.. that is not normal for me!!!!! do you have any idea how cool that is? well, it’s cause for celebration! even more cause for celebration is that after 2 weeks… eric is home from being in china for work.. and 2 weeks is too long! so we are all thrilled to have him home… we get the big 24 hours together before i am heading to edmonton! (to freeze!). so it’s thai food tonight for sure!
ok… so i have to share !
this is my dog ‘blackie’… colton named him when he was 2. it’s a really original name, i know…
but he has been limping around since yesterday afternoon, and i can’t figure out what is wrong with his foot… i don’t ever take photos of him cause he usually doesn’t show up (cause he’s black) and i think he is afriad of my camera… he can’t figure out what i am putting on my face!! it was so sad last night cause he couldn’t jump up on my bed. he sleeps at my feet… i had to lift him up.. and he’s heavy! poor dog… i think the limping is getting better… he HATES the vet…
…everyone has a favorite holiday. you know how i feel about christmas…(although the pink forest did wonders for me this year) … my favorite holiday is easter. i think that it stems from my childhood… my grandma and grandpa k would put on pretty elaborate easter egg hunts for the grandchildren! i got pretty new clothes and i LOVEd to dye easter eggs. as i have gotten older, i have found that easter CANDY is among my favorite as well! in particular: candy coated HERSHEY’s eggs. in the most beautiful colors… anyway, i was at target on valentines and found 2 easter end caps of plates, cups, bowls etc… and i fell in love. i went all out and got a new (well, the only table cloth i own) tablecloth, napkins, plates, cups, bowls etc… so beautiful! i am for sure going to have to throw a party. unfortunately, i am still in search of a few more lg. plates… and i am on the look out for choc. brown placemats.
i had family over for dinner on sunday night and realized that EVERY PLATE i own has a chip out of it. i didnt’ have enough matching glasses and not enough forks to serve 8. it truly inspired me to BUY SOME NEW STUFF. and c’mon the plates you see here were 2.99$ each. the glasses are really plastic. but SO cute. and i will tell you … pink does NOT match my kitchen… but it matches ME!! so that is good enough! what a great reason to celebrate SOMETHING !
