Wish List

I hate getting emails from companies. Hate it.

The worst is Red Envelope. They have such great stuff.  It is a horrible tease to get these emails. Oooo look this pretty necklace is on sale.  Damn, I still don’t have $120 to drop on this necklace I want.

Hers King Baby Dog Tag

It reminds me of a claddagh ring- which I love so much (even though I am not Irish) that I have it tattooed on my back.

Other stuff I like:


Elements Tag Necklaces– In air

heart ring

Celtic Heart Ring

wish charm necklaces

Wish Charm Necklaces


Mysterious Bruise and other random things

So I have a pretty decent bruise on my right foot. I have no idea how I got it. No, my foot is not dirty. I actually noticed it while in vigoriously scrubbing it in the shower (7/22)- alas bruises don’t scrub away. I have not worn any shoes that would have done this. And I am pretty sure I would remember hitting my foot hard enough to make this bruise.  Plus it seems to be spreading since this photo. I’m gonna die.


Peanut Drink…..
So while food shopping this past Saturday I was in our many ‘International Food’ isles and saw PEANUT DRINK. This is a Jamaican drink that lists peanut butter as an ingredient… I had to get it!! It is not diet or taste bud friendly. While there was no false advertising, it did taste peanut buttery, it was not good. For one thing, it tasted way too much of peanut butter. It was thicker than milk but thinner than a shake. Had we added this to a banana and blending it we might have been able to stomach it but after two sips Price and I took a pass on finishing or getting it again. An enlightening $1.99.



The drink and Price about to taste it :-/
Saturday Night….
Emily, her friend Melanie, and I went over to Cambridge for a night out. After roaming around for a bit we settled on Downstairs at The Middle East. We saw the worst band ever. So bad it was funny. Of the guys made funny faces while playing- but not like John Mayer’s funny faces… oh no, much worse. His whole body would get into it and cease up. I was overwhlemed from the faces and the white guy yelling, no really yelling, about white girls. Vanilla Ice lives on.
I had some serious height to my hair. I wish I had a better photo of it. I’ll have to recreate it one day to show my hipster version of juniper creek hair. The best was that after I got home at 3am I went right to bed and it stayed exactly like that so that you never would have known I slept on it for 5 hours. Ah I love hairspray.

Yelp+boat= amazing elite event

Price left to go back to NY until Sunday night. I was mopey at our lunch together because it is almost a week apart. He quickly corrected me and said only 5 days. True. At least it is not over 2 months like when he was in Biloxi. Things are just not he same when he is not at home. Oh well, I filled up my week with things to do to be distracted. First things first….


Being that I’m super cool and a yelp elite I was able to go on a cruise around Boston harbor. My +1 and I had a good time cruising in Boston Harbor. It was the very first yelp elite cruise event in the history of all yelp event. Sweet. Plus we got some free beverages (makers mark mojito= yum, MGD 64= piss water) and dinner. It is surprisingly amusing to everyone to see plans landing at Logan- lots of cheering and clapping. It’s not like their wheels were going to hit the top of the boat but it was pretty cool so see them RIGHT above us. Reminds me of driving on the Jersey Turnpike next to Newark Airport. Anyway, the best was the sunset.




Kick back, relax, and scrapbook

I organize a Scrapbooking Meetup so that I can have people over to scrapbook. Its great being able to share my stamps and tools with people, esp since I have sooo many stamps!!

Well, I was in slow mo all day and did not get much done. At least I have planned for what I will be doing next…. GREECE!!!


Supplies I used:

Paper and brads- Stampin’ Up!, Tags and accents- Halfway Cafe Diecuts from Cosmo Cricket, Rub ons- Hambly’s Stamped Alphabet, Flowers from a Portafolia Gifted Memories kit.

I love everything that I use to scrapbook but since I am a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I can be biased. Great stuff!

Sandcastles in the sky

One word- exhausted.

Most three day weekends are relaxing but I took today off so I could go to the Brimfield Antique Show with Emily. Really, I can’t miss a chance to see the stuff that people have dug out of their attics and then buy it. So we planned for the show and then added on the New England Sand Sculpting Festival to make our day jammed pack.

Brimfield was insane. Some things were amazing like this set of dishes from the late 1800’s I wanted (too bad I don’t have $800 just to throw around) and other things were scary/gross like this one tent that smelled like grandma’s closet mixed with dead animal. While we were getting crispy in the sun I found some cool Pyrex, a rabbit postcard from 1906, 2 Vaseline glass juice reamers, and this AMAZING copper pot and Emily found this cool (‘hipster’) necklace and a decanter. The pot was the deal of the day- $50 and great condition. Plus the guy selling it was hilarious- he had this monster sized hands that had massive gold rings on all his fingers. HA!



So after getting a mild sunburn, spending all our cash on old stuff and Pilgrim sandwiches we headed off to the Revere Beach, America’s first beach, to watch grown men (and a woman)  play in the sand. Luckily, the temp cooled off a bit and some clouds came in otherwise I would look like a lobsta right now. The sand sculptures were incredible. We hung around for a while watching them build, sadly one collapsed a bit but he quickly got to work on fixing it- I would have just fixed myself a strong drink at that point to take a break.
