So Jana invited me tonight to her scrapbook club. I knew like-minded nerdy crafters were out there gathering together, but I had no idea I would like it. I have scrapbooked in the past but don't have the creative edge to come up with my own creations, that look different enough from the page before, so I kinda gave up. I love doing crafty things so this is really up my alley. So I signed up. Now a great meeting of minds will join once a month and I will have my crafty ideas inspired by copying others. (its the best form of flattery so I'm told)

On another note I went to Walmart after to get some grocery shopping done that I have been putting off, until the point where I was out of cereal and milk (those are a must) Anyways I just got home from this adventure (grocery shopping at Walmart always is) and realized my zipper has been down all night....I guess I fit in with all the other sweet people I saw at the walmart at 10:30 at night, but I still feel a little silly. Now my scrapbook club has seen the goods and some icky menz at the walmart have also seen the goods. Jana is in trouble for not noticing and informing. It was like wide open.
Also why does the milk area in any Walmart always smell like milk that has gone bad? That doesn't make me feel very interested in what they are trying to sell me. Clean it!!!!!!!

So I got sent to a place called Wasatch Steel today to pick some sort of steel products up for hanging some cabinets up in the shop. There was a stage 4 freak out by one mister Larry Clubb about Jeremy tripping over said cabinets that were in the hall and dinging up the wall. (Sorry ladies, he is graceful and already taken). Anyway, Kevin had called and put what I needed in will call and had it cut down so it would fit in my car. I walked into the door that had big bold letters saying "WILL CALL" over it. It was like a scene from a movie where some nerdy kid walks into the party and the needle on the record scratches and the music dies and the whole party is staring. Apparently I was like the only girl to ever have walked in the back of this steel place. One guy was bold enough to ask me if I needed something and I told him I had something in will call. Then he sent me to the front office to do paperwork. Why is there a giant sign over the door that says will call, if I have to go in the front door still? I got my pieces of metal and the guy helping me even carried them over to my car. I am pretty sure he doesn't do this for other customers, but I will play the helpless female when needed to keep from having to get metal dirt on me.

Babysitting Miss Aubree

So last week I got to do my first babysitting as an Aunt. I get to do it all over again tonight, and I am pretty excited.
Here are some pictures I took with the new computer, and the new niece.

She almost looks like she is smiling in the right one.

Tired of winter, and love my dog.

So I haven't been doing much of anything lately, which I am really ok with. I have been working and doing hair as normal and after that, I have been pretty useless. I blame January. Its my most hated month. I do not care for snow, cold, and dark. I do like the clothes in the winter. Anything to cover up a little extra lbs here and there.
I love sunshine, mostly because I am in fact the definition of sunshine. haha
I gotta write about my nerdy dog for a minute. I just got his hair cut the other day, and he is a wimp in the cold weather anyways, so we got in the car and there was this little blanket I wrap him up in sometimes usually at night when I am too lazy to put a coat on him. This was in the middle of the day and he jumped over on it and did a half bark at me. So I picked up the blanket and asked if he wanted the blanket. Then he jumped back into my lap and kind of looked back at me like, Ok I am ready. I wrapped my darling child up in his wubbie and he laid in my lap and took a nap on the way home from work. Is my dog more than pampered or what? If he wasn't so adorable I would try and resist more, but I just cant do it. haha

I have discovered one thing about lasers

If it isnt hurting while you are getting it done, oh boy will you pay later. I am in the process of getting my tattoo removed and everytime I go in there, I weep a little inside. It sucks so bad. I have mini blood blisters all over my back. Lets talk to the 18 year old Kira and have a chat. Kira, you may not want your tattoo, however cool you think it is at this time.
When I went in to get numbed the lady said oh your back is really coming out. Man I bet you wish you got the whole thing black. Now if I am in there getting it removed and i could wish anything about the tattoo I would have probably wished that I didnt get it at all. Makes sense to me. People are dumb.
Also I was in one super bitch mode today. I dont have those days often but everything anyone said or did, made my blood boil. I even knew it was completely me being stupid but I would get irritated.
Oh for better days

Boston Baked Beans and Power Tools

So I have never done the whole blog thing, but have recently discovered I love hearing about others so I thought I would give it a shot. I don't have kids or actual interesting things going on so it will be ramblings about whatever I feel like. I thought I would use it as an updated journal since you can back a blog up.

Today I went to 7-11 on my way home from work and as I was checking out and they had a basket of impulse buys at the register. I noticed there were Boston Baked Beans sitting there. I (embarrassingly enough) was pretty excited about this. I grabbed one and asked the cashier "Oh man, when was the last time you had Boston Baked Beans?" She looked at me as if I tried to eat her firstborn and said "I have never tried them." What???? Did she not go trick or treating as a kid? Also...In my family if we got to go into the gas station for a treat, we would ask my mom what row we could have. It was usually the bottom but on special occasions we got to creep up a row or two. That's when the Boston Baked Beans or Lemon heads were a total delight. Needless to say, I have decided that I shouldn't talk to strangers in line at the gas station but I tend to blurt things out so this might be a challenge.

As for the Power Tools portion, I asked my brother Kevin what screw I should use to put up some shelving in my office. Now anyone else would probably just pick one of the many screws we have at the shop and send me on my merry way. Kevin told me I should use this really long screw with this duck like anchor thing (interestingly enough, called a toggle wall anchor) on the back so a 400 pound person can hang from this shelf. Why would a person want to hang off a shelf, I am still not sure. So I had to drill a 3/4" hole in the wall in 4 places for each shelf. So my measuring was just a little off, so the brackets were not completely covering these holes. Then I was trying to use the power screwdriver to get the long screw into the wall. I have discovered I am really bad with the screwdriver. I don't push hard enough and it strips it out a little bit or I push really hard and the screwdriver head goes into the wall and makes a really cool hole I get to patch. In my future will be some putty, sanding, and painting but I have my shelves all hung.
