Blue Series

Here is a picture of the paintings we hung in our house. I am sorry you can’t actually see the paintings. I’ve lost the cable to my digital camera so I had to take this with the stupid camera on my phone. In any case, this is what it looks like in our home. You can see the actual images here, here, here, here, and here.

Yeah So…Remember That Goal I had….

where I was going to read all those books?

Well, that goal is slowly becoming less and less of a priority. So far I have found the books that I have read to be pretty lackluster. And other people have said the same about many of the others. It seems that I have already exhausted all of the books on the list that are even worth reading. So that being said, I will probably still pick and choose books from here on occasion but it is not going to be my sole source of reading material.

On a cooler note, I am working towards putting an art exhibit together! I don’t have a date set yet, but just that fact that I am working towards something that I love makes me feel very good. I put my art website back up. If you are interested in checking it out, here is the link. I will let you know when the show will be happening. For those in the area that can make it, I would love to see you!

And that being said I am off to start my day of coffee and painting!

Spransy Quote of the Day

Conversation that resulted from getting stuck behind a total moron while driving with my mom, today.

Me: Ugh, this person is a total douchewad.

Mom: He’s a douchenozzle. A douchenozzlewad. Hey isn’t that what you yell at a Jewish wedding? DOUCHENOZZLEWAD!!

This Afternoon

Listening to: Oliver play in his room.

Loving: My new ability to text message! (Just for clarification, I understand the concept and know how to text message, I just didn’t have a text messaging plan until now.)

Also, that Oliver insists on holding my hand when he reads his books.

Laughing At:

Making: Coffee. Lots of coffee.

Everyday Life – CAARRRSS!!!

This lovely photo was taken by my new friend, Dawni. She is very kick ass and a talented photographer. This is the most recent photograph of Rocket. He LOVES his cars. Can you believe how grown up he is?! I can’t.

This Morning

Listening to: Oliver watching “Little Bill” and crunching away on a pile of Apple Jacks.

Thinking about: How much I am looking forward to spending the day with my girls. This morning I am off to a birthday brunch and then I am spending the afternoon with a dear friend and her beautiful little baby girl!

Things I Love About Our Home at This Moment:

  • The random farm animal and number magnets all over the dishwasher.
  • The occasional hint that Ollie has been here. . . like the mini fighter jet left in the dishwasher or the car left in the cupboard.
  • The new paintings we have hung.

Project I am Interested In: Isn’t It cute!


Pronunciation: ’ā-tē • ’tü • ’fif-tē

8.jpg Months until Rocket turns two! HOLY SHIT BALLS!

2.jpg Number of weeks I have left to finish up my gifts! I best get crackin’!

5.jpg Number of words that Rocket can say. They are: car, big truck, shoes, uh oh, and yeash (a la Michael Scott).

0.jpg Amount of love I have for my hair right now. Seriously, it’s like a big crazy mop. I need a haircut somethin’ fierce. I was thinking of doing something like this. What do you think?
