Ten on Tuesday

Seems like it's been ages since I've done one of these!

1. Does anyone want to see the new Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland? I'm DYING to see it. Unfortunately, I don't think my movie buddy (Sophie) could handle it. And although he hearts Captain Jack about as much as he does Will Smith, I just don't think I can talk Steven into going to see it.

2. I got an early birthday present from GiGi and I looooooove it! It's a retro bathing suit and it makes me giddy!

If I weren't relegated to wearing a hat thanks to the skin cancer, I'd also buy the vintage swim cap! I'm not even kidding. I think it's the cutest thing since Stella.

3. So I mentioned yesterday that the hubster bought me a Bear Grylls fleece for Valentine's day. And here it is in all it's bad arse Bear Grylls glory:

And it's awesome. It's a lovely wasabi color, it's soft, and it will allow me to be stranded in the mountains with only bugs to eat and my my own urine to drink.

Even better, it came with a free t-shirt. Ok so the t-shirt is on the lame side but it was free and the fleece rocks!

4. Little Bit and I had a date at Steak N Shake the other day. Sometimes I love having girl time with her. She's usually soooo good when it's just me and her. But if it's me and Steven, or me and GiGi, watch out!

5. I need a new Twilight series of books in my life. I finished reading Catching Fire a while back but book 3 won't be out until the fall. So I need something in the meantime. Now don't get me wrong, I've been reading. I've read 4 books on Mt. Everest in the last 2 months. And I highly recommend "Into Thin Air" about the 1996 Everest tragedy. Steven and I have no doubt that if we had over $100,000 we could climb that sucker despite the fact that 1 in 6 people die AND the fact I can hardly climb the three flights of stairs to my office without having a heart attack. Those are just minor speed bumps.

6. My friend and coworker is having a carnival themed birthday party for her 5 year old on Saturday. Somehow along the way, I agreed to dress like a clown. Literally. Meet Giggles. Hope I'm in a bubbly kind of mood on Saturday or the kids could get Homey the Clown! I'll even be wearing the wig and green tights.

7. So we were suppose to have a family photo shoot a few weeks ago. But I just wasn't feeling the cold weather enough to be stomping around downtown Charleston. And Steven has been working on the weekends so it was getting hard to figure out a time. So we moved our session to the end of April. I'm so hoping for tulips by then!

8. Since we've been in our house a year now I'm getting the urge to paint. I have colors picked out for our office and laundry room. And I'd like to paint Sophie's room a shade of robin's egg blue. I told her today my plan was to paint her room "Cinderella blue"seeing as she has no concept of Robin's egg blue and she says "how about Sleeping Beauty pink, I love pink!" Ugh, how about no!

9. So we passed a police car yesterday with it's lights on and Little Bit informed me that "the police will shoot you dead." Nice. This is not Compton we live in but Winfield WV!

10. I've been playing match maker! I love playing match maker it's so fun and Cupid like. I won't be telling the couple that I "connected" about my last foray into match making. They are now divorced! But the guy is now happily married with two kids so it worked out for the best, right!

I'm with you on the swimsuit and cap. LOVE THEM!

"the police will shoot you dead!" Ha ha! Guess Little Bit will need to cut back on all the late night CSI...

Good to see you blogging again!

We liked the "Girl with the Dragon Tatoo" and "The Girl who Played with Fire." I'm looking for some new reading material too.

Jonathan's Mommy said...

I want to see the new Alice in Wonderland SO badly! Jonathan really wants to see it too but I don't know if he's really old enough. I told him I need to check the reviews first.

You MUST post a picture or two of you as a clown--I think it's awesome that you volunteered!!!

Anne said...

LOL @ the Compton reference...... these kids say the most random stuff sometimes.

And I'd like to see a pic of you a clown too! :)
