Ok, here's the deal. I have to list five guilty pleasures and send it off to 3 fabulous and sweet bloggers I know and love... here goes!
There's a picture that goes with this......buuuuut my mouse is broken and I don't know how to fetch pics without being able to right click with a mouse...so sue me. Sorry!
Five Guilty Pleasures:
My favorite is 100% merino wool. It's warm and soft. I have a particular love of yarns that are dyed by hand---yarnies call these "handpainted." Rich bright colors are my favorite. I'm a big fan of all things pink.
2. Vintage Valentines:
Blame it on my birthday, February 14th, but I just *love* this holiday. I started collecting
This bad habit started in or around 2002 when my husband I were in Seattle at Pike's Market and found this cute little Fiesta store. They had these little fruit bowls that I thought were the perfect size for a snack. Paralyzed, I stood there, hemmin' and hawin' over which color to choose, when finally my impatient husband huffed, "Just get one in every color and let's just go!" Brilliant! He has a good idea every now and then. So, ultimately, he is to blame for the "rainbow explosion" that occurred in our cabinets following our trip to Seattle.
Yes, I just love this show. The second season starts tonight. Well, technically it's the Prequel. If you haven't seen it, it's on Starz. It's full of
You don't even need cable. If you can instantly stream Netflix, you can watch it there for free. That's what we do.
5. Musicals: Although I don't know why I feel guilty about musicals....it's just that the tickets seem to get more and more pricey. Then there's parking--downtown. And babysitters. Then you tack on dinner. Before you know it, you've plundered your children's entire college fund for one night of pleasure. Even my husband likes musicals. I forced him to take me to Phantom of the Opera for my 21st birthday....I still remember he wore a Star Wars tie (and I still married him...). He did not want to go but he was wearing the biggest grin when we left, saying, "Well you didn't tell me stuff would blow up!" He's been hooked ever since. He pouted recently when I declined seeing Mary Poppins. My my my, how 13 years can change a man....
Avenue Q has to be my most favorite-ist. If you can't laugh at puppets having wild sex, then it's not the show for you.
And now I need to nominate 3 people.
1. Judi-- she makes me laugh.
2. Sherry -- she was born the same year. :) And she's really sweet, funny, and has given me some great advice (so far....)
3. BG -- she was my first follower and I'm thankful.
Denial update: My bariatric office called today to let me know they are willing to let me come in and get remeasured for my height....but they reiterated it may not make a difference because my BMI would still be 39.3 (still shy of 40) at 5'2". So, I'm going in Monday morning. At the very least, I want this on record that I was literally 4 pounds from qualifying outright. I'm a big fan of accuracy.
My red balloon is still alive! It's officially been floating for 4 weeks and 2 days. Tomorrow is it's one month anniversary.
