Pink Blanket: Pay it forward.

My Friend and Client April is having a baby (well, thats her due date) the same day that I was suppose to have my baby before i miscarried. When I was pregnant we just KNEW it was going to be a girl; so when my friend April told me she was having a girl -it hit me in the gut. "She is having MY BABY!" is what went through my head. That night I told Dan, we discussed that since I LOVE to knit, that I should make her a baby blanket. IT WORKED!!! It totally turned my jealousy into love and I am SO SO SO happy for April and Reagan to have there little girl! T

hat same day I talked to Dan, she had happened to tell me her baby colors. Pink, cream and a touch of black.

I surprised her!

Ikea Dash

The other day we got a new fish since our last fish Flint who relaced Flint which replaced the origional flint tragically died.

Our new fish is Dexter. Here he is in his home... only he is actually 'IN' his home at the moment so you cant see him. He is blue with fluttery fins. He is very pretty!

SO we went to IKEA, to buy THIS LAMP:

to go next to our fish tank. It was 8:58 when we pulled up and RAN to the door. The man inside says "ummm you do know its 8:59!??!?" I said YES but we are only grabbing one item SUPER FAST (sort of true, sort of a lie). So i grab Dan by the hand and we race through IKEA (which by the way is much, much, MUCH, longer than we thought it was... so we run to the lamps. I see the one i want... THERE ARE NONE LEFT!!! UGG what am i going to do??

WELL Ill tell you what i did... Being ME (and if you know me well this wont surprise you in the least) I stuck my hand in between the holes on the display shelves, un plugged it and pulled the cord out from under the plastic clips that were nailed into the shelve; holding the cord down. he heh

It had the WRONG lamp shade on it so... in a hurry I unscrew the like fifteen dollar halogen forever lasting bulb- fumble it out of my hands like a bad play, and it SHATTERS on the floor. The worker on the isle over didnt look - i grab Dan and we RUN!

At the checkout i get an employee, she comes over and i say "um this lamp doesnt have a price tag on it" Looking at the large plastic hanging tags (that are on all display items at ikea) she [really annoyed] says "um... that because this is the DISPLAY!!" so i say, "well can i buy it, its the last one...well can i?? can i?? Its the only one left".

(I swear-- Ive never seen anyone so annoyed!! Its not like i unplugged it and ripped it off the shelve or anything!?!! she acts as if I even broke the bulb that was in it too.. some people are so rude!!) lol

So she SUPER ANNOYED cuts the tags off and rings it up. All at 9:15, im sure she just wanted us to leave!

But i got my LAMP!!

Diet Annie

My mom took us to see Annie on Broadway (here in Austin).

You know how coke and diet coke taste nothing alike??? -Well, this was "Diet Annie"!

Ill have to post pictures when i get them from my mom... It was really a fun night! We even got Annie Tee Shirts. Rachael threw a fit that my mom "LET" Lindsey and I buy one too! but she is only 8 (if you ask her eight and a half!!!) so its ok.

Why was Annie diet???
Miss Hanagen was FAT for one. and instead of being a sloppy drunk she was excessively mean. (blah, that was a bad change in the script!)and she didn't wear lingerie or long pearls.

Annie didnt have curly hair until the last scene.

"Dumb Dog" was removed and Daddy Warbux gave her the dog in the end -- which was retarded since he hated that dog.

and a bunch of little things that dont "really" matter. Like her coat being pink not red... etc... things like that ...

ALL IN ALL it was REALLY FUN being with my mom and my sisters! I had a good night seeing a good play about a little orphan going to live with a billionaire -Just not Annie-.

Thanks for taking us MOM!! I LOVE YOU!!
