Hello old sweater who found new life as a circle scarf and boot socks.
I’ll show you how I repurposed my sweater on Wednesday.
Hello almost teenage son with his fancy new electronic toy.
It’s kind of weird having someone else on the picture snapping end of the camera. I have a feeling many, many ridiculous pictures of me will be floating around the web. Half the time I don’t even realize he’s taking the picture!
Hello Five Guys.
I wish I didn’t hate to love you so much, but your fries speak sweet nothings to me and before I know what is happening, I’ve fallen into potato love.
Hello diet challenge gone terribly wrong.
I have a feeling I shouldn’t have let FringeMan eat that burger, but it was the only thing he ate all day. I hope he did a lot of walking, lifting, bending, and stretching while he was at work, because Five Guys packs a caloric punch.
Hello super-cool futuristic soda machine.
I know I should passionately hate soda, but this lovely machine has Caffeine Free Diet Coke with Lime. Hello love. Let me drink of your saccharine goodness.
Hello cheap date at Barnes and Nobles.
By “cheap date” I really mean family outing to let the kids spend the gift cards they got for Christmas.
I love sitting around the Starbucks Cafe and reading magazines. Have you heard of the magazine The Artful Blogger? It was fun to look through…so many talented people out there. Anyway, they said you cannot be a blogger unless you are a little crazy and passionately alive.
At least that’s how I remember what it said. It’s not nearly word for word, but it was a good line.
Hello cutest tumblers in the world.
I’m in love with a plastic cup. As if cheeseburgers and fries weren’t enough, now there’s a cup. Isn’t it adorable?
I’ll be honest; I felt a little sad leaving it behind.
Hello ring that I almost lost.
I kind of freaked out in Barnes and Nobles. I felt my ring slip off my finger and then I couldn’t find it anywhere. It was Ade’s ring! Do you remember her? The now dead lady whose husband went off to war and never came home…fictionally speaking of course…it was her ring!
Thank the Lord I found it.
That ring has been around since 1942 and I nearly lost it in 2013. Darn my skinny fingers. If it were necessary that I had a skinny part on my body, why couldn’t it be my thighs?
It is a mystery I’ll never understand.
Now I would love to know what you are saying Hello to today? Tell me all about your weekend in the comments, and have a Happy Monday!
I’m linking to Lisa Leonard’s Hello Monday. Go visit and say Hi.
