Bad Driver

Today when I was turning onto my street, someone trying to turn off a side street was pulled out so far I had to swerve around them. Silly distracted drivers. I shook my BLT at her in retaliation.

Marsmellow Flowers

If you cut a regular size marshmellow in half, and smush it with your thumb, you can make pedals like these! I like a mini coloured marshmellow for the centre. Brilliant idea from Janine's co-worker on her birthday cake. :)

It's a bear thing

For some unknown reason, I absolutely love Build-A-Bear. I can't walk by the store in the mall without turning into a lunatic. I got my first bear when I was 16, and I've been addicted ever since. I just love the atmosphere. I love jumping around, dancing, kissing the heart, I do all that.

It's embarrassing for whomever I'm with. I can always justify getting another one. I'm on the Build-A-Bear email list, and the coupons are fantastic. When my Grams turned 70 I took her to Build-A-Bear too, and she had more fun than me! Maybe its genetic.

Ikea Adventure

My sister Aleisha and I love Ikea, so we'll take any excuse to cruise over there, especially around a meal time, but she'd just changed rooms and needed some new furniture. We had a large chunk of time, and no where to be, which is the ideal situation for an Ikea trip. We sauntered around the isles, played with the measuring tape and eventually wound up at the restaurant. They actually had mashed potatoes this time so all the workers were spared, and we ate like kings for under $10. Don't knock the "Princess Cake", it looks a little plastic but it's delicious. We debated over lunch whether Aleisha should buy the large picture of Paris she wanted that had dropped in price. For some reason, it didn't occur to me until we got to the car with the picture on the cart that I drive a hatchback Chevy Metro and itmight not fit.

Who cares if both seats need to be all the way forward, it fits, success! To celebrate, we rode around on the shopping carts!

At home, as we were painstakingly assembling the furniture, we talked about how cool it would be if the furniture assembled itself. Like a pop-up card, or those easy up tents. Imagine your lamp pop out of the box when you open it. Or even better, Ikea furniture transformers style! Watch your lamp transform into an sofa! I wish they'd let me have a crack at their commercials.
