I asked him, "what?"
He says, "You got six packages today!"
Um, well, I knew I had been ordering a few things lately, but six packages in one day? That seems like a lot.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I do a lot of ordering online. There have been bunches of sales going on, and I've taken advantage of one or two, or maybe six.
And here's the worst part, all but two of them were for me. Yup, I've been shopping for myself just weeks before Christmas. Two of the packages were CDs. One was for a card creating kit that is absolutely adorable. The other three are clothes - two packages for the boys and a bag for momma. Most of the clothes for me are going back to the store.
Don't tell him, but there are more coming...

We found out a week or so ago that he'd been hard at work creating a unit for us, and this afternoon he came over to install it.
It is amazing! It fits so perfectly in the spot above the fireplace. It's modular, so if we were to replace the television to something bigger (not sure why we would), we could just take out the cabinets and it will fit. I just love how neat and clean everything looks now.
Here's the nook before...
And here is after...
It is 1,000% better. Thank you!!!

There was also a trunk show going on today, and they had some fun copper pieces including this strand of copper pringles. Those will be tons of fun to incorporate into some new pieces, and they were sooo much less expensive than their sterling counterparts.
I consider it highly successful shopping venture.

I did buy a few extra ingredients to make it again, so maybe I'll get a piece soon.

I have to say that based on my viewing of the lobby at 11:30 tonight, the experience will totally live up to my expectations.

When we got back to the car after a successful stop, I realized I was missing something really important.
Two things were going on when I'd parked the car. One was that I was talking on the phone. The other was that it was pouring down rain, and I didn't want to try to wrestle two little boys and car seats and talking on the phone all at the same time. The new stereo we bought a couple of weeks ago has integrated Bluetooth, so I waited with the accessories for the car on (keeping the Bluetooth connection) until the conversation was over.
The problem is that when I got out of the car (preoccupied with the rain), I forgot to turn off the accessories and put my keys in my purse. I let little Matt lock the doors like he asks to and was promptly locked out.
Of course, it was easily resolved with a 90-minute sidetrack waiting for grandma, driving up to dad's work and coming back with the second set of keys. The boys were troopers because they didn't have lunch until after we were back in our own car. Paul said he was starving, and Matt piped up with "hungry".

As I was driving this morning, I was watching the windows of a building in front of me and they were a brilliant red color. It took me a moment to realize they were reflecting back an amazing sunrise.
Then late this morning, I couldn't resist taking this picture of the same street with these great clouds.

Actually, we're pretty sure he's just getting over a cold.
