I purchased my first items off of craigslist! A girl in monmouth was asking $150 and I got it for $75. I've been searching for a set of table and chairs for the last few weeks that have fabric seats that I can recover with fun modern fabric. My winter project is to sand/paint the table chairs and recover the seats. Im really excited! A project for craft night!
First night is Set.
Next Tuesday Beka's House. All are welcome. I'll bring soup!
This is a funny picture I found on my camera. Phil got his laptop fixed last Tuesday, "yay for extended warranties!" So this guy came and basically gave Phil a brand new laptop. niiiiiiice.
Yesterday was beautiful and sunny. Our not smart dogs made sure to enjoy it.
Poor Apple, she thought it would be nice to nap with Jericho, apparently she is willing to take the risk of being blasted by Jericho's death gas. Phil, Denny, Ryan, Tommy, Sam, Simonson, Mars and Tyler Bushnell are all on a Timberhill B-ball team together... the truth is I don't really watch the games, I just hang out with Betsy.
P.S. Phil wanted me to say that he was 4 for 7 on field goals.
I've never been that interested in politics... its so intimidating to me, there is so much to know and so many different sides of issues and I don't like to form opinions until I hear all the sides so then I get overwhelmed and chose to not be involved... not much has changed but at least now I'm actually interested could that just be my age? The last election I was only 20 and self absorbed, more interested in what was in my closet than who was in the white house?!
This time around Im really excited about www.whitehouse.gov I'm looking forward to the Weekly Video Address, from the site:
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA'S WEEKLY VIDEO ADDRESS
President Barack Obama plans to publish a weekly video address every Saturday morning of his presidency.
Visit this page every week to watch the President's most recent video.
WhiteHouse.gov will be a central part of President Obama's pledge to make his the most transparent and accountable administration in American history.
Jill Bell told Phil and I about an awesome deal that all these restaurants are offering this week. Each Resturant offering a chef's special plate for only $10! Of course I want to go to all of them... wanna meet up?
"In the joy of a new beginning we ask you to help us look for the day when black will not be asked to give back, when brown can stick around, when yella will be mella and the redman can get ahead man and when white will embrace what is right. Let all those who do justice and give mercy say AMEN"
Finally I'm back to Normalcy. My 12/24-1/12 vacation has come to an end. During my weeks of bliss our computers crashed... yes both of them. So strange but totally fine. My work sent me a new computer and it was kinda nice to have that time with Phil and no technological distractions but that also meant no blogging. I have so much catching up to do, and I still haven't posted about Cabo but before I can do that:
HAPPY BIRTHDAYS KELLEY GIRLS! I'm so very thankful that my sisters-in-law don't suck... ya know what I mean ha ha ha ha! I feel very blessed that they are just as much my friends as they are my marital-obligated-family!
