Here I am again, not keeping up with posting. It has been crazy crazy here. We are trying to buy a house, OK, not WE, but Me! School is almost out, THURSAY, and we have had a ton of after school stuff going on. I have also been trying to sell the puppies. AND SWAPS SWAPS SWAPS, and TESTING! lol SO, very very busy.

I was tagged the other day, so I need to post that….I will. I also never got back in and updated my Trivia Qs for the KSKS. 😦 I have to do this weeks Q’s also.

So, over the next few days, I will be updating here, and showing off pics!

~We made it home in one piece!! OK, I was more worried about me making it home in one piece!  See, I’m not in the best of shape, and since I quit smoking…….yes, poundage factors! (Miranda: I was wayyyyyyyy off when we had this conversation! I bought scales…sniffle sniffle…Thank heavens I have the treadmill!) I will talk more about the trip tomorrow, when I’m not so sore and tired! We did have loads of fun though!~

I ordered some things for some of my swap gals, and they came in the other day! SO, I have those ready to go off to my peeps. I hope they will like them.

My postcards came in from Whimzee (another TX gal) and Vade-Mecum ( a fellow Brit!). AWESOME Thanx guys!

Davids (vade-Mecum) postcard said “What’s orange and sounds like a parrot? A carrot! Tooo cute, eh!

Mary (whimzee) postcard said “The only place housework comes before knitting is in the dictionary!” Ummmmm, I love this woman! lol

When I came home yesterday today (1:30am) I had 2 packages waiting for me. I thought one was from my unknown SP, but no. (she said she had something in the mail for me, but it hasn’t arrived, getting worried.) My movies came in from Colombia House (I just joined the program!) and Favorite Throws & Table Toppers to Crochet with the 2 free pattern books. Woo Hoo! (annies)

Well,  I’m going to go watch a movie and crochet for some swaps.  I just want to be comfortable!lol!

I will holler at ya’ll later…..Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Reminder : HSK Swap Updates Here

Looky at what came in  the mail yesterday( a couple of days ago…..I hit save and not publish, go figure!) for me! I’m so excited!!! Nutty, you are so sweet!!! (Which by the way, you didn’t have to do any of this!) I love the little chimes! I will be planting the daisies, and drinking the coffee! (in my new coffee pot!)Here’s a no brainer, I will be eating the chocolate cookies too! hahaha!  I absolutely love the square you sent for the swap! Just gorge! The card was so sweet, Thank you!!!!!!

Did I mention that my hubby gave me a coffee pot? He ordered the Gevalia coffee, you know the special. Well, it’s really cool, and it matches my kitchen. I see a theme happening. The last few items that we have bought for the kitchen, have been silver. (Fridge, 2 door…..icemaker…..I have been wanting one for years, and we finally have one! The magic bullet…..hey, don’t knock it, it’s kick butt! Finally the coffee pot.) The set is worth it, the coffee is around $35 for 4 8oz boxes, the coffee pot sells for $90.oo….I say it’s a deal, even if you don’t want to keep buying the coffee. WHICH, by the way, I plan to keep getting it. I love it!

The brown mug with the coffee topper is from nutty, I just had to show a close of it!  That’s the new coffee pot with travel mugs. The 4 cup set in the top left were from my other mom as a house warming gift. Hey, you can even see part of my magic bullet!

I have added some stitch markers to my esty store, SALLENS BOUTIQUE. Go check them out!
