CKC! My parents will be arriving tonight and then Thursday my mom and I will be immersing ourselves in all things scrapbooky! :) It's our one true girls getaway...which is funny, because the focus is scrapbooking, something we do for our families. I always get all sentimental during these breaks. I'm such a sap!
Anyway, this year we left a night open so we could watch a scary movie, something our husbands don't love as much as we do.* I so hope the 'on demand' thing at the hotel has one. That would really stink if it didn't!
My camera is working off and on, so I was able to take a pic of the most excellent gift Kala sent me. Does she know me or what!? It's a crochet hook holder! Isn't the spider adorable?
So anyway (I find myself saying 'anyway' a lot. Maybe because I go off on tangents???) Anyway, (lol) I remembered that I didn't show you all of the pumpkins. I know Halloween is way past, but you didn't see jj's pumpkin, which is adorable. It's the one in the front. Sorry about the blurry pic. I'm shaky, and I don't have a tripod... :)
I also want to show you a recent purchase. This only cost $18!!! It's going on my mantle...once I get it cleared off. I just love old windows. It's a pretty big guy too (~30 x 40"). I've also picked out a paint color for that wall (I think). I'm going with something dark-ish to try to detract attention from the hideous hearth/mantle. Hopefully I'll be able to share soon! :)
* Recently the kids stayed with jj's dad and we decided to go to IKEA (it was the most wonderful IKEA trip I've had in a while. jj even bought me stuff!) And then we decided to get cozy on the couch and watch a non family movie. Well, there wasn't much to chose from, and we didn't want to waste time going to the dvd store. So we chose Splice. Well yuck. I don't recommend it. It was a little sick and I didn't care for the actors. jj is considering it a horror movie, and re-asserting how much he hates them. But it really wasn't horror. It was more like a sick sci-fi.
