Dear Comcast On Demand,

Thank you for putting "Different Strokes" on your on-demand list.
Because sometimes when I am eating my breakfast,
I just need a dose of "What-chyou talkin' bout Willis?"
to get my day going.

A Very Satisfied Customer

I Can't Help It ...

the minute I feel the crisp fall air ...

I have to break this out and reread it.
Nothing is better for a fall day than curling up with a blanket and some cider
and escaping to Anne's world.

Favorite Lovelies ...

It is no secret that I love Elsie Flannigan,
and I love her shop.

Her are a few things I am digging right now ...

Such cute little journals to fill up with thoughts and ideas.
I love her fun fonts and drawings ...

She has designed a 2010 calendar full of prints of her original art,
which is so adorable and whimsical.

and I LOVE her latest print.
It makes me happy ...

This years Harvest Fest was a blast!
I love seeing so many dear friends,
and am always sad that there isn't more time to sit and have great heart to hearts.

As usual, I got so busy chatting that I didn't take any pictures of people!
Luckily, cute Em posted some on her blog!

Until next year ...

Middle School Envy ...

My friend Jyll and I had a little craft night the other night.
The minute she pulled out her bag full of projects,
I gasped!
I was immediately thrown back to middle school,
and was green with envy because she carried this ...

an ESPRIT bag!!!

I gasped out loud when I saw it and shouted "AN ESPRIT BAG!!!"

I ALWAYS wanted an ESPRIT bag.
When I was in 6th grade it seemed like all the cool girls in the 8th grade had them,
as well as those large crocheted sweaters that were pretty much see through.

In honor , we listened to the 90's station on my satellite radio,
and jammed to Kris Kross and Mr. Big.

For your enjoyment ...

This Makes Me Giggle ...

I LOVE that they did a Miley song ...

and I am a little sad that they didn't invite me to their beach party!

Lessons Learned Today ...

1. I love driving in the rain!

2. Life is much easier when your hip is in the socket ... Thank heaven for chiropractors!

3. I can't stand Willard Scott and his Smuckers 100 ... He bugs me. Even if he was the original Ronald McDonald.

4. I love fall! Even the Costco parking lot looked pretty with all the trees and bushes in varying hues.

5. When you print more than 500 pictures at Costco they only charge you 10 cents a print!

6. Having a laptop battery that actually holds a charge makes blogging so much easier! So thanks to Jeff at Simply Mac!

I Love Him ...

and I am just waiting for the episode where there is a dream sequence,
and he can suddenly dance.
I have a feeling he can bust a move.

My Latest Obsession ...

the shark steamer.

and makes me giddy.

It is just a loaner,
but has made me a believer!

I'm Not Going To Lie ...

I got a little teary tonight as I watched.

I love them.

Today Is My Day Off ...

and so far I have ...

baked a red velvet cake from scratch,
made 1/3 of the cake bites for an upcoming party,
vacuumed out my car,
shampooed the carpets in my car,
waited for a repairman to fix the ice machine,
asked the nice boy at Sonic if he was okay after he biffed it on his skates,
laundered all my bed linens,
used the word laundered,
unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher,
and I now have a yummy soup simmering on the stove for dinner.

So I feel like a I deserve to kick my feet up and watch Nie on "Oprah"

I love getting things accomplished!

Taking "Being A Fan" A Bit TOO Far ...

While searching for a picture of Rachel Ray for my last post
I came across this ...

The only thing I can say is ...


Dear Rachel Ray,

I just wanted you to know that I hold you responsible for dropping the mayonnaise jar on my foot today. It's because of you that I feel I have to get ALL the ingredients for my recipe out of the fridge at the same time.

Just thought you should know.
