The One with 10 on Tuesday


Wednesday, June 1, 2011

1) I'm only 20 posts away from my 1000th post! I've been working on the 10 handmade books I'm going to give away on that special day like a madwoman any spare second I have. Which, let's be honest, my spare seconds are few and far between! I might have to blog only every other day to give myself more time lol!

2) 10 pregnancy pounds to lose became 15 in a few short weeks. What happened to being able to eat whatever I want whenever I want? Dangit. I'm off sweets. I'm off treats. I'm off snacks.

I'm going to try and exercise every night as soon as Fox goes to sleep. I'm going to eat more fruits and vegies and cut back on the ginormous portions I've been eating and assuming breast feeding would take care of. Now that Fox is eating a lot more solids, I guess my excuse for eating for 2 is definitely out the window!

3) I have a recurring dream that I'm at the top of a really high building, usually the Empire State Building in New York or the Sears Tower in Chicago, and I freak out and hyperventilate because it's so high. But the thing is, I'm not really afraid of heights - I love going to the tops of skyscrapers! Flying in airplanes is a different story. I didn't used to be scared of flying. But like Claire on Modern Family says who is also petrified of flying, "I have so much more to lose now!" We've got 8 airplane trips planned between now and August though so I'll just have to muster up some courage. But back to the recurring dream - what does it even mean?

4) I went to the Paper Source in Pasadena the other day. I could spend hours at that store.

I asked a lady who worked there if she even makes any money. She laughed and said nope, though I'm sure she was half joking. I hope. Though I know I'd spend every cent of my paycheck buying paper and glue and random kick knacks. Oh wait, I already do do that.

5) I have a huge black and blue bruise on the back of my leg and I have no idea how it got there.

Why don't I remember getting this ouchie? Blocking out painful memories?

6) The weather in southern California is perpetually wonderful. (I took this pic just now looking through our wide open screened window.)

If you're looking for relief from snow this close to summer or crazy destructive tornadoes or incessant rain, I've got a couch calling your name!

7) Sometimes I wish computers weren't invented. What did people do before the internet? Now there's Facebook and Twitter and blogs and Ebay and Etsy and Pinterest and YouTube and Hulu and Netflix and on and on and on (and on and on and on). You could literally live your life at the computer. I need to go on a computer fast. Get me away from this thang!

8) My newest obsession: BAKER'S TWINE!

Isn't it yummy! Oh the things you could do with baker's twine!

9) Do you ever get hairs down your shirt? I just had one. I quickly pulled it out and now I feel sweet relief. How's that for random? It's hard to think of ten things man!

10) We had big plans to go to Madame Tussauds in Hollywood this morning. We have a Groupon that's burning a hole in our pockets. But alas, my bum is strapped to this chair at the computer getting work done. Work work work! Speaking of which, I need to get back to :)

  3. I'm doing no sweets too! Let's make a lack together! Melissa is trying to do it too. Paige I was just thinking on Sunday how skinny you were looking! I think whatever you're doing is great, but a little exercise is good for everyone!

  4. It's so wonderful to have a glimpse of your life!! I think I can spent all day in that Paper source!! Can't wait to see your handmade books!! I sometimes wish computer isn't taking my time away from so many things--like losing weight and exercise and card-making...

  6. I almost never know why I have my bruises. I think I sometimes get really intense bruises from something I barely even noticed the first time, either because I was too busy or too distracted by Miles.

  9. Don't tell me you bought all that twine!! I've wanted all those colors forever but it's expensive! I bought red/white/blue twine on etsy by divine twine, but I was kind of disappointed how thin the twine was. It's still pretty cute though.

    p.s. I hate getting hairs down my shirt at work... it's so awkward to try and pull out when you're not even sure where it is!

  10. I was just wondering about your 1000th post giveaway the other day! Can't wait.

    Oh, I joined Pinterest and finally figured out how to use it! So fun. Why are computers so fun?!

  11. WOW! A 1000 post--I cannot believe it:) I am not sure how many I've done--I'll have to look! LOL!

    What a fun post today--although, I feel horrible for your leg....and I totally know what it's like waking up and finding a bruise!

    Congrats on so many posts!!!

    ps...I got your email--no worries:) I love playing along with you/Create! I just wish I had time this week! It's been TOO long:)

  12. This is truly the most random post! But they are my favorite. Number 9 made me giggle. That happens to me ALL the time, and then I get itchy, and that just looks awkward to scratch there (when it happens down the front that is, which is mainly where it happens). Hahaha!
