My Latest Phone Incident

My phone died after falling in the toilet, but before it died, there was a ringtone. I’m Too Sexy by Right Said Fred. Don’t act like you don’t remember it! I thought it would be funny, but I just ended up being embarrassed whenever my phone rang.

I am enjoying the Manduka PROLite so far although I am going to have to write lot, and lots, and lots of papers. Joy.

I am so excited about Sex and the City: the movie! Everyone I know who is a fan (including myself) has been busy trying to plan out their outfit for the movie and putting together a Girl’s Night Out!

I need new sandals really badly. My favorite pair talks when I walk, lol.

I’ve been having tooth pain again. I know I should go to the dentist. I’m not afraid, I’ve just been too lazy to schedule an appointment. I should get on that…

I’ve been wanting to try wearing a face full of makeup for a while, and finally got up the courage to do so. In this photo, I am wearing concealer, foundation (more like a tinted moisturizer), eye shadow, eye liner, mascara, blush and lip gloss. Phew. I learned a few things, like my eyes are probably too small for me to wear black eyeliner. My eyes all but disappear. Also, I’m gonna need to practice blending around the forehead.

Since I last blogged:

I got all set to start school again. I start an elementary education program tomorrow! All online. I am excited and determined to finish. At first, I thought I would do that, then get my MLS to become a librarian, but now, I am thinking of becoming a teacher after all. I know it’s twee and all, but maybe I’ll end up being someone who can make a difference.

I took ZB to the neurologist about those headaches he’s had over the past year plus. She doesn’t think anything is seriously wrong, but she wants to do an MRI just to be sure. He also has a prescription for Maxalt now. I don’t know if I’m going to fill it though.

We went back to the ADHD specialist, and I was pretty disappointed. He felt that meds were the way to go and that anything else wouldn’t work. What? Otay. Totally ignoring his advice and doing things my way (possible dietary changes, lots of exercise as usual, yoga, maybe acupuncture, maybe some other holistic stuff). The best thing to come out of this diagnosis deal has been getting ZB’s teacher to lay off.

I’ve become a vegetarian. I’ve been “almost” vegetarian for a while now, rarely eating meat, but now I’ve cut it out altogether. I don’t miss it at all. I don’t know if I’ll stay vegetarian, but I’m happy for now and trying to make sure I get all the proper nutrients.

I have been purging more crap from around the house to make room for the Honeywell HFD-120-Q. Why does it feel so good to get rid of things you don’t need? I always tell DH that I don’t want to be one of those people that when I die, my family has to sort through loads of my junk. I am always working towards simplicity.

I’ve had a lot of fun with my family including a field trip to the zoo with Kindy and 2nd grade. Pics to come, of course.

Some Things You May Be Here For

Here are some more of the things you may be looking for:

-Ah, that would be my post on bathing suit shopping.

  1. forced to wear leggings

-Wow, that’s never happened to me. Sorry!

  1. shirring tutorial

-Hm, I guess this is in reference to the shirred top dress I made Girlie. Here’s the link to the pattern/tutorial and for our review on the Honeywell HFD-010.

  1. how to sew a birthday banner/felt banner/etc

-This is pretty easy. For a felt one, just cut out same sized triangles, and sew them together with a ribbon or something. I sew mine together with bias tape. A fabric one requires a little more if you want it to be patterned on both sides. Cut out two triangles in each of your fabrics and sew the long sides together. I pink the edges, and voila!

  1. spacer dental

-Yes, ZB has one.

  1. hand sewn bed pillow doll

-What’s to know? Cut out two rectangles, sew 3 right sides together. Turn right side out, stuff, and sew up the fourth side. The end.

  1. eloise poster

-We got ours at Hastings. It was on a board or something and I just asked if I could have it. Yea, you can do that.

  1. hello kitty dollar tree

-This must be about the bento boxes we got there. Sorry, I don’t think they’re selling them anymore.
