Letters just like these (albeit, not nearly as cute) are on sale at this fluffy expensive baby chic store for $25 a piece. A PIECE! Bought them for $1.99 a piece (a piece!) and bought 4 pieces of coordinating scrapbook paper that were .50 each, but they were on sale for 50% off — so that’s a whopping dollar for paper. So, who is the idiot that buys $25 letters? Because I would really like to show them how easy peasy this was to make. Or, you know, sell them some of my letters for the bargain price of $24.50 each.

so is my camera really that crappy? that’s a part of it or is it Photobucket? no. Just me! This is a super cute mirror, but it certainly doesn’t show here. This mirror really is much cuter in person. The green in Gianna is the same green that’s in the center of the little white flower, so it ties it together. And the green is a totally different shade than what shows up here. Oh, and not shown is the grograin pink bow hanger. But I can’t take another picture b/c I’ve already sold it. And I didn’t take a very good picture b/c I didn’t know I was going to start a blog.
Whew! I talk a lot!
seeing the “Just My Luck” DVD I just borrowed from the library sitting on our counter, my husband asks “Is it your personal goal to watch every Lindsay Lohan movie ever made?”
speaking of Captain and Tennille — and if you have been a regular reader, you will remember the reference — When I was little, Muskrat Love was my very favorite song. Ever. Muskrats? In love? What’s better than that? One night my boyfriend and a bunch of friends were out on 6th street in Austin. 6th Street is about as cheese filled as you can get. Like, the streets are lined with Velveeta and the best cheese bars ever. One cheese bar featured dualing piano players. Oh yes it did. As the piano players were up there dualing, they took requests for songs. So I wrote very carefully on my piece of paper “Chipmunk Love”. One of the duo read my request and basically said 1) no way and 2) it is Muskrat Love. Yeah. Did I mention that we were drinking? Maybe that makes it funnier. When I remember it, it is way funnier than when I read it……
But it does remind me of another drunken night spent writing about rodents. The night my best friend and I were on the Fish Lot (the college parking lot roughly the size of Alabama) armed with a bottle of shoe polish each. In what we thought was a purely hysterical move, we scribbled “Meerkats RULE!” on every frat boy car we could find. Days and weeks later, we’d see cars driving around with Meerkats RULE driven by cocky frat boys with their baseball caps on backward. It is hard to look cool when Meerkats RULE is your statement of choice.
When the day comes and I am nominated for all kinds of Blog Awards, gazillions of people are going to rush to this site and read…….this.
and then they’ll yawn.
Yum! Just like peanut butter and jelly. Captain and Tennille. Salt and Pepper (ooh, Push It!).
