Thank you, Jamie! I am, too, and I really hope they can pull together all these loose ends in the last two episodes!!

Haha thank you, Lee! THANK YOU. I literally have no clue where some of this stuff comes from. I actually thought about that - after the season is over, binge watch the entire thing all over again and see if it makes sense. But you're right - is it worth it?? I mean, I'm sure HBO has something else waiting on the sidelines for me to get addicted to, and I'll forget all about trying to make sense of this season's True Detective. Ha!! Here's hoping the last two episodes bring it all together, because my brain is spent.

Did you ever get so behind in reading your blog roll that you just went through each one and cleared the feed without reading any of the articles? No? Just me? Ok. Well....I just did that. Last week, I fought what I call The Trifecta: ear infection, sinus infection, and... Continue reading

Thanks, Rose! I've been told by more than one person that I need to sell this graph, so I might have to seriously consider doing that! It's such a wonderful sentiment.

I normally don't do this, but it's been so long since I've done a stitch post (or really any post for that matter....where does the time go??) that I wanted to share this with you. In the past, when I've stitched a gift, I wait until it's framed and given... Continue reading

Hi Robin!! Thank you!! I had no idea it'd been so long since I posted until I wrote this post! It's been ages!! Oh, your planner must be so well-loved by now! I'm sure the Coach leather is perfectly worn and still as lovely as when you bought it! I have many Coach products, and one of my favorites is my checkbook holder - it's buffalo leather and it's incredible. I'm still debating on what kind of binder I want - I kinda want to break away from my traditional black everything and get something purple (my fav color) we'll see!!! Thanks for stopping by as always!!!

Back in college and grad school, I was obsessed with my planner. There was a Franklin Planner store in the King of Prussia mall (oh, KoP, how i miss you so...), and I would go every summer to get my refills, and then get out all my colored pens and... Continue reading

Thanks, Robin! I was expecting crowds, but not like that. I think part of it was because the Smithsonian Mall area has some serious construction going on, and most of it was blocked off, forcing people all around the outside of the lawn. It was hectic. Also, considering it was the first day we've had since probably October that was that nice out, everyone had the same idea i did - get me out of this house!!!!!

You GUYS. I hope that you had as spectacular of a weekend as we had here in DC. I mean, OMG. Friday was eh, with rain and still kinda chilly, but Saturday? BE-A-UTIFUL. Sunday??? Equally as gorgeous. Saturday I finally decided to venture into DC, because I had to figure... Continue reading

Prayers for you and your family, Marie. I lost my dad 2 years ago to cancer. May these wonderful memories you have keep him alive in your heart forever.

Hi Robin!! i'm sorry - they're Project Life - it's a scrapbooking system to make getting all your scrapping done in quick, easy steps, with various pocket pages and minimal embellishments. The idea is to preserve the memories and tell the everyday stories, because it's the little, everyday things that add up to the big stuff during the year. There are kits and cards, and themed cards, and just about everything you could imagine - it's gotten really popular over the last couple of years. I really like it because i work better on a smaller scale - traditional 12x12 layouts are really intimidating for me. For a better point of reference, since I don't really post too many pics of my project life album here, my December Daily album is a take on the yearly Project Life album. You can also go on to learn more - she's the one who created this system. Ali Edwards also has a great site, and so does Kelly Purkey, in case you wanted to see what it was all about!!

It's no secret I have a love affair with coffee. I used to drink so many lattes, I named my blog after that obsession. Over the last year or so, I've gotten back into stamping since I've been making my Christmas cards and keeping project life album. Stamps are a... Continue reading

I've been impatiently waiting for my eleventy billion ebooks to come off the hold shelf at the library, so in the meantime, I checked out one from the history section. Because...I'm a nerd. And also because, the American Revolution, Civil War, and Turn of the Century eras in American History... Continue reading

Thanks, Robin! Well, I still have the Shores of Hawk Run going, and I have a few gifts I'm lining up the supplies for...but I may have to have another small going, too, since the gifts I'll be doing are on the bigger side. They'll be top secret until the gifts are given to the recipient, but I'll def do a post of them!!
Did you ever have one of those days where you felt just like Will Ferrell's character in "Zoolander"? That was me yesterday. All day. When I got home, I was totally wired to workout, but actually ended up feeling like I was too wired...if that even makes any sense.... Continue reading
