1. I have a new love: espresso.
2. I kind of, really want that tattoo.
3. We are in baked good heaven, because a wonderful lady from our church brought us a whole bunch of day old goodness from Panera. Delicious.
4. I feel like the packing is at a stand still, next week will be crazy land central station packing mode nation. (that was for my husband.)
5. When applying for a job, is it appropriate to include: You obviously need me for this job, you really do.

Two new little wonders have recently come into my possession. Frankly, I’m not sure how I functioned without them. I’m serious. I love them.
1. cute little netbook.
The husband and I aren’t really fighters, at all, but it’s very difficult for two busy artists/bloggers to both be sharing one computer, especially when we’re both home all day. Actually, it’s impossible and irritating. I wouldn’t recommend it. So, he did some serious scouting and we found a remedy to that problem. Enter my little netbook: cute, affordable, almost sort of looks like a mac, which is a big plus. I mean, if you can’t have a mac, you can try to pretend, right? I really love it. Not to mention, the battery life is insane, like seven hours. Now I spend days making fun of my husband’s computer because it has to be plugged in every 1.56 hours. He makes fun of the fact that mine only has Windows 7 starter… but then I win that argument with one word: Vista. EVERYTHING IS BETTER THAN VISTA.
The only downside… if we’re not careful, we’ll end up spending the rest of our evenings on the couch, in front of our computer screens, watching the office…. and then we won’t remember the last time we actually spoke to each other.
that’s a bit extreme, I know.
2. Italian coffee maker
Let’s just say what’s not being said here, regular coffee isn’t always strong enough. It’s just not enough. Since, I still have to just dream about enjoying a latte from the fancy espresso machine that I sadly don’t own yet, this will help ease the pain.
In fact, after finishing this post, I’m going to make some espresso, because the clock and my head are telling me it’s about that time. Obviously, this little beauty (mine is actually red) won’t be replacing my beloved French press, but it will bring a whole new joy to our lives.
What items have made your life more fun these days?

Earlier this week, we turned in our thirty day notice for the apartment. The apartment that we only planned on renting for the extent of our one year lease. The apartment managed by a company that is anything but professional, respectable, and efficient. The apartment that we stayed in because the rent was very reasonable for three bedrooms in an old house, oh yes, and the husband lost his job, a year ago.
Today, we started packing, which I love because it means a change is coming and I get to give away tons of things, but I also dislike it because, well… why do we have so much stuff? I’ve almost convinced my husband to get rid of almost everything, doesn’t that sound exciting??
**If you’re interested in learning more about our next step, go here.
Also, I was really excited to read about all the creative endeavors that you wish to pursue. Here’s what I think: DO IT. DO IT. DO IT. If you try and it doesn’t turn out like you thought, you’ll probably discover something new along the way. Pursuing creativity will always be worthwhile. I’d love to hear about your progress and creative journey, so please let me know how it goes.
And now, we have serious business to address, the winner of the scarf & postcard giveaway…
I used random.org, so the choice was completely unbiased… and random.org told me to pick number six.
Number six is… Kalah Riley!!
Kalah, e-mail me your mailing address, so that you can get a fun little package in the mail.

Sometimes, I think I’m funny.
… sometimes I think I’m super funny. For example, last night past my point of exhaustion and reason, I said this little gem of wisdom about babies growing up…
“Basically, you have a baby, drink lots of coffee so you can be awake to take care of that little baby… and then the baby lets you actually get some sleep for a while… and then BAM, your baby is practically all grown up.”
Yes, I did use BAM.
Happy Monday, you’re welcome.
my little boy is growing up.
