the weekend: watched a movie, hung out with the husband at the mall, bought new jeans for cheap cheap, worked out, finished another nicholas sparks book (yes i know, i know, but they're easy reads), and chopped my hair off.

it’s spring and it’s snowing. i need a vacation. i’m so sick of winter clothes and winter coats and gloves and scarves and mittens and cracked skin and runny noses. good news is the truck is fixed. brand new brakes. for half what the dealer wanted to charge. nice.
digging into your closet for an outfit you haven't worn in a while is great. it makes you realize what clothes you actually hate and why, and instead of tossing them back in the closet, you can decide who to give them away to. jen, you're getting some new pants!

this is my favorite hand lotion ever. and it's all natural. and it makes you smell like a hippie. it will even last through a couple hand washes. i've been through buttloads of lotions and this is by far my favorite, especially for my below zero chapped skin, so i thought i'ld spread the love (or the lotion)...and it's green-ish. so happy saint patty's day to ya.

On the bright side my new music arrived yesterday, which was a nice surprise since i never got an e-mail saying when it was shipped. I kind of liked it that way better. So far i love two of the five. So far i’ve only listened to two of the five so the odds are good.
In dark side news, my truck is giving me trouble, and part of it’s warranty just expired at 75K. it’s something to do with the 4x4, right now it’s stuck in 4-wheel, and getting through the parking garage was an interesting experience. Turning an axel in 4-wheel drive while on dry ground is something you’re not supposed to do. So tonight i’ll drop it at the shop and hope for the best. But i’m not expecting it.

so i spent lastnight putting together a couple of fabulous photos for today but when i checked this morning they were nowhere to be found. dissapointing. so enjoy these two rather disturbing images courtesy of an old college friend. this is the infamous road trip of '97. we travelled from rhode island to pennsylvania to florida in a truck about a third of that size...

in other news i worked all night on my project and i’m really loving it. it’s a little artsy, so be warned heather! after the baby shower i’ll post some pics of the finished product. i wouldn’t want to ruin the suspense…
i’ts raining and gray here so i decided to update my header with some brighter happiness…i’m also waiting for 5 new cds (thanks to bmg) of some really fabulous artists i discovered through pandora.com. if you don’t know what i’m talking about and you love music, you would be doing yourself a great disservice if you don’t check it out right now. go. right now!

i should have been working on heather’s gift lastnight but instead we watched ‘walk the line’ which wasn’t half bad, even if you’re not a fan of Cash’s music. but the good news is i figured out a way to get said gift done quicker and better! very excited, as in, can’t wait to get home tonight and work on it while the husband is out playing basketball excited.
still planning on driving home this weekend. hope to get out of town early and hit the outlets on the way. they keep sending me all these fabulous gift cards and i’m not one to turn down free shopping…

so the assignment for march is to catalog your week creatively in photos. i chose trash.
this is the wastebasket in my bedroom. if you notice, i had a cold at the beginning of last week. then over the weekend we went shopping. monday is trash night so we usually empty all the trash on sunday. i've been able to sleep for two nights without having to wake up and blow my nose. for other self-portraits click here.

okay, so since i am the essence of doom and gloom and whine with my cheese, i plan to start favorites friday, to end my week on a note of gladness. every friday i'll post a picture of some of my favorite items, whether shampoo, lip gloss, or socks. this week i'm posting my new green shoes, and since i really want to delay the start of cleaning the bathroom, i give you this photoshopped pic:
