"Too strong for me?!?"

While contemplating the large bruise on my arm this morning, I thought of this scene from Friends:

I'll admit it, all three of my brothers are too strong for me now, but I still put up a good fight!

I'm sorry Jayne, I was raised with boys, we fought/wrestled a lot.

I'm sorry mom, through no fault of yours, I'm not very ladylike.

I'm sorry Caleb, your back probably hurt the next day...

I have friends, who like Rachel had only sisters, and they think it's insane that we "used to" fight all the time. Ross and Monica and me and my brothers can't be the only ones, right?

Did any of you wrestle with your siblings when you were younger (or still)?

Supposedly, people have been asking about the hats i've made and Jayleb suggested that I make some business cards. Although I scoff at the idea of anyone wanting one of my crazy hats, the thought of making business cards sounded super fun! I found this company called Moo.com and they make mini cards. They are so fun! You can choose from a huge selection of great designs or upload your own design. 

I picked one of theirs and love them!
They have this cute little felt card holder.
And they even come wrapped perfectly. 
They have normal cards and all sorts of other fun things. 

Like this:

Custom StickerBooks! 
I may or may not of made a sticker book full of Benedict, Richard and Lee. I'm admitting to nothing. 
My insanity aside, check them out, super great quality, fast shipping and inexpensive! 

Ooh! Maybe i'll do a contest and give away a sticker book! Check back for more info. :-)

(Moo.com has no clue who I am, they know nothing about this blog, i just like them and wanted to share)

I feel like they need to rethink their product placement...

Unusual companions

Every day I drive on River Road, and almost every day, I see a herd of deer and a flock of wild turkeys. Why is this blog-worthy, you might ask? Because they are always together! It's very odd. I've never seen anything like it. 

Here look. I circled the turkeys for you.
(sorry for the junk pic, it's hard to take a good shot while driving...)

Whether they are on the hill above the road or in the marshy area below the road, they are together. 

How long has this been happening? Why does it happen? Does wild turkey taste better than farm turkey? What is the meaning of life? These are the questions I ask myself whenever I see them. 

We may never know.

All these years...

I tried gelato for the first time today. It's amazing. I had the pistachio flavor. Dead. So creamy and delicious. The Italians really know their food.

I do not like green eggs and ham!

So you know how I was really sick? While sick I stayed far away from the nieces and nephews and missed them terribly. But bless technology and FaceTime! The whole crew called one night and entertained me quite awhile. Then EJ offered to read me a book before bed. I accepted. Of course.

I managed to  take a couple screen caps.

It was so fun. She is such a great reader. Her intonation is perfection. So unique and adorable.

She stopped after every page and let me see the pictures, which was super thoughtful.

She read Green Eggs and Ham and Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? It really took me back. I only wish that i'd been smart enough to record it!

I have a request. If you have a little one in your life, read a book with them today. Books = joy.

Thank you so much, EJ!! I loved listening to you read.

Dumb swine.

So...last week I had the flu. And not the pansy, puke for a fews days, flu. I had H1N1. I feel so special! Blerg. I've never been that sick in my life. F'reals. Normally I downplay it when I get sick...not this time! I'm complaining all I want about this one ;-) +Karla Kepsel had it too. We went to lunch together and were both near death the next day. Some little punk infected us.

Anywho. I was joking that I had the plague and it made me think of this sketch and I laughed. And if they had come around my house, I would've gotten on that cart myself. That's how awesome I felt :-)

Parcels from far away...

I love receiving parcels from other countries. The further away, the better! (Further? Farther?) 

Today was a good day. I received two!

The first was from a dear friend in Croatia (Thank you Ari!). She sent me yummy Croatian treats and lotion.
And look at the great stamps!
I love stamps. I think I need to send her a package full of Utah things. Hmmm. Can I ship her a Mormon? ;-) 

The second parcel is from India. 
I ordered silk scraps for the Nuno Felting that I'm obsessed with right now. They are beautiful. So rich.
And then there is the parcel itself. It's fabric. It's sewn shut. It's covered in fabulous stamps. Heaven!
I love thinking about these packages and how far they've traveled. They have been places and seen things, i've never seen. Which hands have touched them? Who belongs to those hands? All the delicious possibilites!

Fire Station Field Trip!

Too lazy to blog about this myself. Just read Jayne's, it's perfecto :-)
