How cute are these girls? I saw this picture on flickr and read the interesting memories of Joey Harrison's mom. Times were so different!!

I love this line: "A date was likely to try crooning "Five Minutes More" at the end of an evening, a song from the movie "Sweetheart of Sigma Chi.""

Nothing new to show you, I've been a slug in the evenings lately.  I blame the cold, brrrrrr. What's sad is that it hasn't even been that cold.  I'm in for it when the real cold comes.  
Anyway, here is a little web banner I did for a fellow Etsian.  I think it turned out quite nice!

Good friends, good food...

PF Changs lettuce wraps... MMmm

I went to dinner with a very dear friend last night, Sassafrass. She's a lovely girl with a great sense of humor. We always have loads to laugh about. We went to PF Chang's and had crab wontons (delicious) and lettuce wraps (yum).

More Christmas thoughts....

My friend Matt sent me this picture (that someone else took, I apologize for not giving credit) of my all time favorite holiday cookie, the peanut blossom. *sigh* Look at it in all its glory - peanut butter dough and slightly melty Hershey Kiss on top. Yum!

A sketch I did some time ago. I think it's kinda cute... :)

Check out the recipes on Pioneer Woman. Dang, I'm drooling over here!

Christmas time is near....

Poor Thanksgiving, while I love a holiday that is purely about family and eating, I skip it as far as decorating. Christmas though.... *LOVE* How about these cute trees from Middleburg? I could be wrong, but it seems as if I read about her in a recent Mary Engelbreit magazine too. Uber cute stuff.

I'm just sitting over here thinking about Pizza King... So pizza earrings from Shay Aaron seemed the appropriate find for the day. :)

Rain rain go away...

I need this necklace from The Royal Bead on this rainy, glum day.

I also need to start exercising again. I'm in a bit of a funk lately and I NEED those endorphins!

This song makes me shake my booty. Ummm hmmm...

And I watched Step Up 2- The Streets yesterday. A bit cheesy as you might have guessed, but the dance scene at the end was fantastic.

Lovin' this dress from Claire La Faye. Dreamin' of warm weather on a gloomy chilly evening.

Whale for Tuesday

Cute whale softies from Kate Durkin Tasty Goods. These remind me of the neat little things my mom's mom used to make for us when we were wee.

Cute sailboat softies too!

Wickedly smooth...

Some very cool friends of ours gave us a little present when they came out to our bonfire. The wrapping and the present are so cool, just like Marsha and Arthur. Vampyre Vodka, "Wickedly Smooth." I love it!
