Ten on Tuesday….On Thursday.

I missed Ten on Tuesday so I am giving it to you on Thursday instead. Ten on Thursday!

1. My friend Ariah wrote a children’s book called Clean Water for Elirose that he is selling to raise funds for clean water wells. Here are a few organizations that Ariah encourages others to donate to that help bring clean water to those who have none.

2. This Saturday I am going with the Sanctuary Choir to sing at Gospel Fest in Duluth. The event is at the College of St. Scholastica. I’m excited that Tonia Hughes, Darnell Davis, and Triad 4 Christ are also performing! All proceeds from the concert will go to help local food shelves. It should be a great day trip and a blessed time.

3. After having bedding that was dry clean only for too long, I finally purchased a new comforter that I can machine wash. Why is this so important? I realized having a dry clean only comforter when you have a dog that sleeps on your bed all day while you are at work is not a good idea. Ha! I looked around for a while and then stumbled upon this bedding at Costco. It was the best price I had seen AND machine washable! I hadn’t imagined I would buy purple, but it goes well with our green walls.

4. I hadn’t imagined I would end up with something so floral either but it’s nice for Spring!

5. Speaking of the bed. The other night I left the room to get something in the other room and when I came back I found this:

6. I’ve stopped watching a lot of shows on a regular basis. Some of them still sit on my Tivo with hopes I will find time for them, but others I’ve canceled my season passes to. Gotta make time for when Friday Night Lights comes back, right?

7. Oh that’s tomorrow! Woot! The last season of Friday Night Lights starts for us who don’t have Direct TV. It’s in my top fave dramas for sure.

8. What are my current faves? The Good Wife, Parenthood, and Friday Night Lights.

9. By the way, did you know April 28th is Michael Scott/Steve Carell’s last episode of The Office??? NO!!!!

10. I shop, I scrap, I watch stuff, and I do read! I’m currently still reading the Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson. Reading “The Girl Who Played With Fire” right now. It’s hard to put down!

Hello there and Happy Friday!

In the past week I took pictures on ONE day. Glorious! I will get back to taking photos. It’s just nice to have a break. 🙂 But, because of this I have no new photos to post on my good ole blog.

Is there anything you would like to see me blog about? Have any questions you’d like me to answer or anything you’d like to see photos of?

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Ten on Tuesday

1.      It’s currently 51 degrees in Minneapolis. This is very welcome! And Saturday it’s supposed to get up to 65! I can hardly imagine.

2.      The Silhouette Store is having a sale right now so I downloaded a bunch of designs last night. It ends today April 5th. Hopefully I can find some time this week to scrapbook and use my Silhouette!

3.      I’m even happier that I chose the Silhouette after discovering that ProvoCraft has sued the companies that make the software that’s made  to be able to design your own stuff with the Cricut. Sure Cuts A Lot and Make the Cut.

4.      Today is the anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death. You should watch my fave mash-up of Nirvana and the Jackson 5, “Smells Like Rockin’ Robin.”

5.      I really want to listen to these streaming albums before they come out: TV on the Radio: Nine Types of Light and Low: C’Mon. Both bands are on tour and will be in Minneapolis this month while I’m out of town. Boo.

6.      I ordered a couple of photo canvases through deals where I just had to pay shipping. They both shipped and I am waiting for them to arrive now. I’ll let you know what I think. I paid $14.99 for one from and $6.99 for one from Winkflash (and this deal expired already). Click on this link for the Canvas People deal.

7.      Snapfish has a deal going right now for 111 4×6 prints for $1.11. Use coupon code 11PRINTS at checkout by April 7th. I pretty much only order prints through deals like this these days.

8.      Thursday was my birthday. Trevor got up early and made me waffles, and took me out for dinner at Green Mill where I got my free birthday Sunday. He also surprised me by getting his hair cut after he had been letting it grow for months. I was happy. 🙂

9.      Now that the snow has melted, our yard is covered with shredded up newspaper because we get the Star Tribune Express for free on Sunday (for the coupons) and the squirrels have been stealing it for their nests. It’s crazy.

10.    Also, there are plants starting to grow in my garden! That is the most exciting news I’ve had in a long time. 🙂
