stockings

I've had my one good eye on these stockings over at PBKids. Part of me wants to duplicate them, in the future, at a more affordable price...putting my mad sewing skills to use.

And part of me wants to just snatch them up while they're on sale for $14.99 and shipping is free. And have them here in time for Christmas.

And another part of me is hoping that they will still be in stock after Christmas...and that the price will be even less.

[and I'm kidding about that 'one good eye' bit]

Dan in Real Life

Recently, I flipped through the tv channels wanting to find some quick entertainment...you know something that wasn't too long or involved so I'd get to bed at a decent hour, but not wanting to go to bed too early...I saw that Dan in Real Life was on. I love this movie. I actually own it.

It was at the part where the family is singing about Ruthie 'pig face' Draper. I watched until the next commercial break...and I just had a hankering to watch more...so instead of watching it on tv like my parents would do [even when they owned the movies]. I got out our DVD and watched Dan in Real Life in its entirety, which resulted in the late night I was trying to avoid, but totally worth it.

I love the strong sense of family in this movie.  I love their little traditions and the activities they do to keep the family involved: the family talent show, the cross-word puzzle competition, the 'aerobics class,' and the football game. Just love it all plus it makes me laugh every time.

shades

The only pair of sunglasses I have ever truly loved with all my heart. ...fell into a yet-to-be-used toilet at the San Antonio airport on the 3rd of November, and even though I have washed them and sanitized them, I still have not had the heart [or the guts] to put them on.

I will be emersing them in a bleach/water combo for one last desperate attempt to save them [in my eyes; they may already be saved in yours]. I realize people drop cell phones and keys in toilets all the time, and continue to use them if they work...oh, if I could be so brave.

I will. But if you happen to see me wearing them...let's just keep it on the down-low. m'kay?
