I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. What can I say though, not a lot has happened.
It is spring, but last night it snowed so we’re still in winter – at least that’s what it feels like. I’m ready for summer though, not spring.
Right now though I’m looking for a little table to put under one of the windows in the living room so I can grow some house plants. The reason behind that is so it will feel like spring, even though the weather doesn’t.
Don’t get me wrong we did have a few days that were nice temperature wise – but those days didn’t last long.
Work has been…work. Though I did call off Friday of last week. I ended up catching that nasty 24 hour stomach bug. By Friday night everyone in the house had it…it was horrible. I woke up 2:30am Friday morning throwing up. I stayed up doing that until around 9:30am.
Even though it only lasts like 24 hours, it still takes a couple days to get your sleep caught up and really feeling better. Friday night I did go to sleep at 8:30pm and didn’t wake up until 7:30am. haha.
Saturday I was suppose to get my new tattoo done, but due to that flu bug and other things I rescheduled it for the 4th of April. I didn’t want to wait too long to get it done because it’s something that I really want done. The downside is the artist I really wanted to do it can’t do it so I’m kind of worried about how it will turn out. Don’t get me wrong this guy is great too, it’s just that he doesn’t really budge when it comes to size and location of tattoos.
I think everyone knows I’m a fan of ebay, but I know my limits. This dress had no limits but I only ended up spending around $16 with shipping included. So worth it! It’s a little long though, so I’m going to hem it to the right length so it looks right. Sad thing is, I don’t have a reason to wear it. Ugh.
I did order an extra small corset, but it’s still too big. Which I know sounds weird and some people don’t understand how a corset can be big. By that I mean the corset is as small as it goes just to fit my natural waist. Right now my number one mission is to find a corset that will fit me and give me room to tighten it.
This is another dress I bought on ebay. I only spent around $5 on it and I didn’t notice the sleeves in the pictures. Well, I love the sleeves! They’re so fun!
Today I got this dress in the mail. It’s a panel dress. There are two panels in the dress that are see-through. I was worried that the see-through panels would be at the wrong places, but to my surprise they’re not. It’s a fun little dress. ^_^
The newest charm for my origami owl necklace! It took me forever, but I finally bought the rolling pin charm. ^_^ Now they’re doing state charms, so I’m waiting on the charm for Washington state.
I did finally get my bento box in the mail and the insulated bag to put it in. I figured a bento box would be perfect for work since I’m not taking a lunch every day. I mean this week I’m only taking a lunch one day. I am excited to use the box too, though for the first few times I’m sure it will not look as great as some of the pictures I’ve seen.
Easter is coming up too so I finally ordered my oldest niece and (step) nephew their gifts. I bought my niece the Doc McStuffins game for her tablet. My nephew I bought him one of those things he can push and walk behind. I spent a little more on it since it’s one that you can lay flat and play with.
I still have my (step) niece to buy for. She’s only four months so I’m going to buy her one of those baby gyms. She’s just now able to roll over, so I think she’ll get a lot of use out of it.
For the two oldest kids I’m getting them sand buckets for t heir baskets…not sure what I’m doing with the youngest yet.
Today I mailed out super late Christmas gifts, but at least they’re in the mail finally! I can’t wait to see if the two people I sent gifts to like what I sent. I’ve been dying to talk about it, but I’ve been super good and haven’t said anything.
Tomorrow is my last day off this week though, so I’m pretty much watching movies until I fall asleep – which will be soon.
Strawberry Filled Chocolate Cupcakes
Stuffed Cabbage & Mashed Potatoes
Homemade Italian Sausage with bell peppers, onions and mushrooms. And by homemade I mean I made the “sausage”! No worries, I’m adding final touches to the recipe and it’s SUPER easy to make compared to some of the others I seen online.
