Hello, my name is...

Does that make you think of Eminem?  Is it crazy to you too that that album is - omg - 13 years old???  Chris listened to it while delivering pizzas.  I listened to it my first year as a transfer student at UGA.  I would crank it up while spending a ridiculous amount of time looking for a parking space at PVAC.  Just in case you were wondering.  I keep thinking of it because I am going to Blissdom later this week and I feel like I am going to be saying, "Hello, my name is..." a billion times and as long as I don't slip a Slim Shady in there to follow, I should be ok. 

Now, did you follow the link to Blissdom?  Did you see that Joe Jonas is performing?  Chris asked if a bunch of women will be throwing their underwear on stage...I said, "No, they'll be throwing their spanx." 

God knows I'll be wearing mine.  Wearing being the operative word.  I won't be throwing mine on stage.  I don't think I could get it off discreetly enough.  Just sayin.

And speaking of Blissdom, I have been working on my swag to hand out with business cards {in super cute packaging, of course}...


...I am crazy nervous about this week.  Like, ridiculously nervous.  Like, I may need to be medicated kind of nervous.  I don't know anyone that is going and IT FREAKS ME OUT.  Chris keeps trying to calm my nerves by pointing out that even if the trip is a complete bust, I will have a quiet hotel room for 3 nights.  That in itself is pretty awesome.  But I don't know if that makes up for the nerves part.

I plan on finishing this book this week...


...Have you read it?  I loved The Devil in the White City, so I am expecting great things from this.  So far, so good.  I was thankful for some time to read while the girls were in dance last week, because it has been sitting on my nightstand for a good month or so. 

I'm thinking about a starting a book posting day.  I mean, after all, my day job is a being a librarian.  I do happen to know a little bit about books.  What do you think about that?

My favorite dinner last week...


...grilled marinated chicken, roasted asparagus, sauteed red cabbage, steamed broccoli, and you know, minus the leftover fried rice {from valentine's day hibachi dinner} with bacon, I would have to say that it was a pretty healthy meal.  ;)

How did you get started in jewelry making? I would love to learn and I looked at classes at our local craft store, and it was showing some funky macrame-looking necklace. Not at all like I am interested in! Just wondering-I have bought ear rings from you a few times and love them. Just wondering! Thanks!

Thank you so much for the earrings at Blissdom! I can't wait to wear them.
