Bucket List

a few weeks/a month or so ago michelle was over at my house and i was making fruit salad. i cut a baby watermelon in half and she asked if she could have a spoon and eat right the watermelon. i was like ok....she got really excited and said this is on my bucket list but my mom would never let me waste half a watermelon....well that was special but i decided to make up my own bucket list.
here are a few things in no particular order i would like to do before i kick the bucket.

ok i would either like to be on survivor or amazing race, or at least go to a survivor reunion show. i should probably get on this one b/c i don't know how much longer the show would last. if i had it my way it would never end!

SKYDIVE!!!!! seriously i would love to go. i might need to be pushed off the plane but after that i think it would be fun...or maybe a simulator would be better...?

swim with the sharks. slash hang out in a cage with sharks around me. or maybe if it was one of those cool places where the sharks don't attack and you can actually swim with them. that would be cool too. this might be where my obsession with shark week comes from.

go on a safari in africa. i chose this picture b/c i would have to invest in some amazing lens' like they are using. i could go for national geographic or just by myself.

i want to build my own house in the middle of a big field with nobody else around. it will be awesome. i guess i'll have to start saving for that. maybe in about 30 years :).

meet johnny depp :)! ummm i guess there's no explanation needed for that one.

travel around the world. greece would be a good starting point.

maybe part of that traveling could be done on a cruise ship.
anyways those are just a few things i wouldn't mind doing in my life. there is lots more where that came from but these are the most exciting.

Baby Bear Hat

Saturday night while watching 17 again with michelle and shelley i started this baby hat for a lady i work with who is having a baby next month (run on sentence much?). i only got like 8 rows done though i wasn't really motivated. well sunday i knitted a little longer and got the hat and one ear done and today after work i finished it up.

it's a bear hat....or just a brown blob with green things on should fit a newborn head just perfectly hopefully.

this weekend i also used sam and shelley as my test subjects for "facepainting" shelley is the guy from kiss and sam is just a weirdo. a little random.
also emily this is for you since i never gave you that picture of reagans first haircut! even though it was a little it still matters! also i hope you are feeling better emily!!!! let me know if you need anything.
this was like a mishmash post, lots of random pics i found on my camera. at least i got one project done and i updated woohoooooo. ok off to start a new project? maybe. or i'll just go to sleep. ya right. hopefully that one random cow will stop mooing tonight.

So much to do and not enough time...

i have so many pictures to
go through and edit and i just don't know when i'm going to do it all! ahhhhh. i need to almost take a few days off from other jobs just to have time to do it.

i have a big primary activity where i did little 5-10 min. mini sessions that need to be edited

i have probably 2 family's who need editing

a family reunion type thing to edit

a wedding

a new baby

and a 1 yr. old's pics.
phew. and i still have to start carving out a time for my classes from which i've only had time to do two lessons... :( eeeek. i need to make that the priority. so if you want me to take pictures for you i'd be happy to do it just know i'm a little behind at the moment and it might take some time to actually get the pictures and i know that's the hardest part, waiting after they're taken.

ok now i have to go take shelley into town for a little bit then get ready for work.
p.s. those pics above are from a wedding and a baby obviously. kristen and holland are pretending to duel like in harry potter. and the baby is flipping off the camera...i just thought it was funny.

Old Navy

I have many obsessions I'll the last post and the post before that and so on. Old Navy is one of those. I don't know why or how it started but I'm thinking I can blame Michelle. before she moved back I occasionally went to ON but since she's been home, i think i've gone in that dang store about 12 times...about half of the time i don't buy anything but still 12 TIMES! i'm not shopping's biggest fan unless it's kitchen supplies, groceries, lens', target but i suppose that has changed?

Well this post is to let you know about a little thing i found a few weeks ago that lets me shop at ON w/o feeling SO guilty. it's called, Old Navy Weekly. every thursday at an undisclosed time in the evening they update this page. it is full of hidden coupons. some as good as $75 off $100 but i think they changed it to $65off $100 recently. last week i finally was there when they updated and got a $45 off of $100!!! woohoo! if you want to get a high value coupon you have to be right there when they update otherwise they will all be gone but you can still get other deals.

that's where this site comes in's this ladies blog but on the left hand side she has a chat room where you can go on thursdays around 4ish and they will ring a bell to let you know when ONW is updating. people also post where the high value coupons are so you have a better chance of getting one. only 200 people can be in the chat room at once so keep trying if you get booted out.


this i think was $20 on sale super comfy though.

this sweater was the item of the week and was on sale for $12...with my coupon i got 3 for about $6 each! they have lots of colors/patterns

this dress was $30....the only thing i got that wasn't on sale. :(. although it certainly doesn't look like that on me:).
i also got their perfect cardigan for $20 originally $30. i could have gone for better sales in the clearance section but...didn't.
my coupon was for $45 off of $100 so i got $165 worth of clothes for $65.
