Little Blue Box

This little blue box:

see that messy desk underneath it? that's proof that it's mine. UPS dropped it off for me yesterday afternoon and it sat there posed and pretty all afternoon. I did get that little giddy feeling seeing a blue box in my house.

Steve saved for nearly two months to buy this for me. He saw it at Christmas time when finances were getting tight. Oh, you want to know what was in it? Just this:

Pretty huh? It looks even better on. It's from Tiffany's Frank Gehry collection. Steve knows I love Gehry's architecture. He says it's to represent all the things he knows I dream about and that he would love to get for me but can't right now.
I love my husband. He did good.

Been Crafty

A friend of mine told me about a cute purse she bought the other day made out of little girl's pants. sounds weird I know, but I had to try it. I made one for Sarah.

Here she is with her new haircut too. it's not the most flattering picture of her, but she looks cute with the shorter hair. She's so happy with her purse she carried around all afternoon yesterday and took it to school today. She also helped a bit with the sewing part.

Summer Vacation

we figured out our summer vacation plans this morning. Yes, those plans were made because of the Harry Potter book 7 release announcement. My oldest sister is even more into HP than I am (shocking I know) and we made plans with the last book that we would go to the last party together. I'm so excited! We'll go early in the week and have fun putzing around the porland/vancouver area, seeing the zoo and Omsi and finish up with the HP party.

So if you are going to be at Powell's bookstore in Portland, OR for the release party, say hi. ;)
