come back weekend...come back

happy Tuesday morning!!

I hope you all enjoyed the weekend, whether it be long or short...I had a spectacularly relaxing one, you see bubs and I went nowhere and did BBQ's no fire works...nothing, and it was still a bit blissful.

He got out of work Saturday and that began the weekend that was filled with eating junk foods (for dinner one night we had cheesecake and peanut butter ice cream) and lots of relaxing, napping, reading and then yes...even more sweets.

We did take a little jaunt to the small movie theater a few blocks from us to go see Pirates, which was by far the best of the three movies even though it had stuff I am not a fan of.

1- gross eyeball things
2- crabs (yes Aaron, you have now made ME scared of crabs too, you are right it's the pinchers and crabwalking)
3- Kiera Knightly

Then yesterday my bubs went back to work and I spent the day packaging things up and watching way too many hours of old school Degrassi High, I don;t know what it is but I am just a sucker for Canadian TV from when I was a teenager, don't even get me started on how much I love anything Anne Of Green Gable related!!!

I also managed to get some really good creative time in this weekend too, amidst the naps and the sweets.

So did anyone else watch the Miss Universe Pageant last night??? Well I did, and can I just say, the girls were especially slutty looking this year, and I swear Miss Korea looked like an adult film star, and...her name was "Honey Lee"...that is so not her real name.

I also like that Dava Navarro was one of the judges, and when he got to ask "the final question" to Miss Brazil (who was beautiful in a Las Vegas Showgirl kind of way), he basically was just hitting on her and called her "baby"

I also like that Miss USA fell on her but during the Evening Gown competition, and then got booed by the audience when she made it into the top 5....

sorry to geek out, but I do love the damn beauty pageants a lot...a real lot.

ok, must get back to work....

I have also realized that I am "this close" (ok 9 away) from hitting the 1000 items sold in my shop...which seems so strange and wonderful at the same time, I really feel like I should be doing something very special for the next 9 things sold, like free stuff or a special sale or something....

so...I guess I will do a sale, yes, that's it...I will give the sales until I hit 1000 a special 20% off. Just write "1000" in the message to seller and wait for a new invoice.

ok, that's enough business to start my day.

Wahoo on One-thousand!

Sounds like your holiday weekend was great and, from the looks of your shop, you did get in a lot of good creative time.

Umm... could I possibly swing by for dinner one night when you have cheesecake and peanut butter ice cream? ;)

Seriously, I won't be happy until everyone else is as terrified of crabs as I am.

Actually, no, strike that. I need you all to remain unafraid so you can protect me from them. F-ing crustaceans.

Glad you had a good weekend, though. And congrats on closing in on 1000 sales! You is superbad!

I grew up with girls who did pageants(there quite big in Texas),though as a redhead I never bothered. Did you know that its an unofficial rule that redheads are un-American?

squeal! so close to 1000, what an absolute surreal delightful feeling. Congrats to you, it is well deserved. Your weekend sounds perfect, minus the pirates, I can't watch any of those movies, I have a thing against Disney.

I looked at the beach for a pacific crab to take a photo of for your scared folks, but there were none to be had.

Also - Jungle Dream Pagoda? If redheads are unamerican, then down with America!

Thanks so much for offering a sale and congrats on being almost to 1000, if you haven't reached it already by the time you read this. :)

I actually did happen to catch a glimpse of the Miss Universe broadcast. My friend and I were on the way out the door, then once we saw those crazy costumes on the screen, we simply couldn't leave the house: we had to see it though to the end. I'm still trying to decide what kind of amazing those wild costumes were...amazingly insane or amazingly creative? I mean, the lime green feather boa that stood up and twirled around for miles...yikes!
