In Which It’s An Exciting Day

April 1, 2010

Tonight Bones returns with its first new episode in nearly two months and I couldn’t be more excited. The wait has been too long.

Fringe also returns tonight after an almost two month hiatus.

Besides Bones, I am also highly anticipating this evening’s new episode of The Mentalist. It’s been ages since my two favorites were on the same night so I am glad to have this combo back again.

So those are some of the reasons why I love Thursdays, but today is even more special because it is eceldridge‘s birthday. Happy Birthday, roomie!


Happy Birthday, G. Washington!

February 22, 2010

Hey, guys, guess what. Today is George Washington’s 278th birthday. He was a great man and exceptional leader. The first president of our country–and no one else, in my opinion, has even come close to being as terrific as he.

Yes, I get a little geeked out about G. W. It also doesn’t hurt that he has a terrific home.

If you have no idea why I like this man so much, do yourself a favor and hit up your local library soon.

Anyway, here’s to you, George. It’s been all downhill ever since.


Handmade Gifts

January 7, 2010

There is just something about handmade gifts. Have you received any nice ones recently or made one for someone else? I have zero talent for such things, but I did receive some lovely ones this year.

The above purse was made by my sister Sara and given to me for Christmas. I haven’t yet had a chance to use it, but I love it.

This small case was made by my grandma and sent to me as a birthday gift. It is beautiful and very professionally put-together.

This scarf, a birthday gift, was also made by Sara.
