{Love Your Soul}

Friday, April 1, 2011

I think it's a good morning when this is your message from the Universe. Even if your message from the Universe comes in the form of a little tag on your Yogi Himalayan Apple Spice tea. I'll take it. And no, it's not the first time I have gotten this exact message... but again, I'll take it. 
And I am starting to love a hot cup of tea a little more and more, too. 
Welcome to your random Friday post.

Yesterday I sat and made about ten pairs of these little earrings and could not stop myself. I made yellow, white and blue little roses and burnt my finger several times on the glue gun but it didn't even phase me. Seriously, making earrings and drinking hot tea and listening to 70's Folk on Pandora. A great afternoon. 

We did the preschool registration thing this week and all went well. I talked with Charlotte ahead of time about acting like a big girl and refraining from barking/panting like a dog when people spoke to her at school. Luckily, she did not. Sometimes when people ask her a question or she is embarrassed/shy she will answer with a "bark, bark". And I don't mean that she actually barks but she says "bark, bark". And check out that outfit she picked out for her big day. She was so proud of herself for matching those shoes with her shirt. Yes, sometimes the outfits are a little much with the stripes, polka dots and crazy tights
 but I love style. Well, usually anyway.

So back to the earrings. I know these are nothing new, these are everywhere and mine are nothing special at all. They are also not professional looking--as in they are not worthy of being sold or anything-but they are worthy of a give-away I think. So, I think I will give away five pairs next week. You don't have to do anything silly or jump through any hoops, just leave me a comment and tell me which color you would like: blue, yellow or white. I don't care if you are a lurker, regular commenter or visiting for the first time, I'm just going to randomly pick five names on Monday.

This was yesterday. She did not want him to go to school. But she did want to go to Joann Fabrics 
after we dropped him off at school, so she got over it quickly. She really does miss him when he is at school most days though. She also likes having her own time at home though too.

I have now moved onto 80's love ballads on Pandora and now think I have the motivation to 
get up, get this house picked up, laundry put away and beds made. Tonight is Family Game Night at school so the Bramer family will be in attendance and you know Mrs. Bramer got roped into volunteering...oh well, that's okay, I am meeting the girls afterwards so it's all good.
Happy Friday!!! 

And here's a little inspiration for you. 1988-style, baby. Muwahahahaha. 
I hope it's stuck in your head all day.You can thank me later.
