random thoughts all around

Today, life is pretty scattered all around. It's like having a serious case of ADD and awesome at the same time.

Ok, here we go.

First off Society Bakery was voted best bakery in the Best of Citysearch, so they are giving away a free cupcake if you say Best of Citysearch. Also, today, if you bring in proof of a charitable donation in the past month, you can get FOUR free cupcakes. Score one for Saving 2nd Base!

Next up, Old Navy is having a ridiculous sale on women's sale/clearance items. It is take an additional 50% off the sale price. Last night, we went in there to get some pants for Don. Actually, we went in there to return some pants and walked out with some new swag for Don, Mari, and I. I didn't look as hard as I should have, had I remembered that this sale was going on. Oh well. I did get an awesome yoga shirt for $3.24!

This weekend, I'm co-hosting a baby shower. Three of us went in on a gift and purchased the Baby Jogger City Mini stroller at Buy Buy Baby. When we were looking at what to get, Don and I got a serious case of stroller envy! It is so light, compact, and folks, when I say compact, this thing seriously folds down smaller than some purses I've seen women dragging around! We seriously considered getting one for ourselves, when we were reminded that we already own 3 different strollers, we don't need yet another. Speaking of the shower, I've been embroidering away on a personalized burp cloth. I think it is finished, so I'll snap a photo before sending it off to the new owner. Still lots of other things to pick up before the shower happens, like food, but hopefully, that'll all be a post on its own.

Also, my cousin came over and showed me how to do proper transitions with my crocheting and I'm well on my way to having a scarf for Mari. I'm liking it so much that I may have to make a matching scarf for myself.

Lots to do this weekend too. My nephew has his birthday party at the skating rink on Sunday. Plus, we want to go to the Pumpkin Patch. Also, we hope to participate in our church's Trunk or Treat tomorrow, but not sure if we'll be able to make it. We'll see.

Here's to hoping for a productive weekend and enjoying quality time with family!

ooooo! I really want to learn how to crochet. I have tried on several occasions but only know the one stitch move. I would love a lesson!
Thank you for the cupcake again. I just finished gobbling it down.
