First off, a big announcement: I’m Pregnant!!!!!!!!!
Happy April Fool’s.
All kidding aside, yesterday I went to Marshall’s and for $34 bucks, got some little thrills from the shopping adventure. It had been a few weeks since my last trip to Marshall’s, and I was excited to find some new goodies.
New dishes and linens
The bird and flower print pieces were only $2.99 each
The blue ribbon shallow bowl was on the clearance rack for 3 bucks
More linens to go with my other scarves and linens I just snagged to beautify my photographs
And a big box. With two boxes inside it!
It reminds me of the Russian nesting dolls I had as a child
A perfect place to stash blog linens with plenty of room to spare. <— Room to spare is a good problem to have.
Another little thrill was the gorgeous 84F and sunny weather we had on Thursday in San Diego. I got a great run and workout in, worked up a sweat, and I am not even a sweater. Felt good to get my heat on.
Another little thrill is a plate of Pumpkin Pie Spiced “Baked” Bananas
My final little thrill is that Tastespotting accepted my No Bake Nutter Butter Special K Bars recipe. Actually that was a pretty big thrill for me and put a huge smile on my face.
Here it is on their site
From my last post about Art & Artists, it was wonderful to read what you consider to be your art. It’s always fun to read about what people are skilled at and also in the future, what artistic mediums you’d like to develop and work on more.
And I am glad many of your parents saved your childhood art projects!
1. Do you like practical jokes or April Fool’s Day jokes?
I honestly don’t really like them that much. I do have a sense of humor but there is something about practical jokes that I don’t really like. Call me a softie, but I always feel sorry for the person who’s on the receiving end of the joke. That’s not to say I don’t laugh at Candid Camera type jokes, but I still feel sort of bad and uncomfortable for the person. I guess I’m just not a “jokester” type.
April Fool’s Day jokes are only funny if the punchline comes about two seconds after the joke begins. Pregnant? Dream on. One and done here.
2. What are your Little Thrills lately?
A few other thrills of mine include:
longer, warmer days
more energy that just happens naturally for me when the weather is nicer
paying off my debt (not a little thrill, a big one!)
a couple cool events I plan to attend
3. Weekend plans?
I am working, working out, hopefully spending some time in the kitchen working on recipes.
And then I get to take pictures of what I make. Lately I love taking pictures probably more than even the cooking process, but it’s a hard call. I dig them both. They are both relaxing to me.
And of course, I will spend time with Skylar over the weekend, too!
