I absolutely love to read and wish I more time to do it. Here's what is currently waiting on my bookshelf while I finish The Host:
This one is an Oprah's Book Club book, but don't hold that against it. I think it sounded great before I knew that tidbit. (Don't throw stones, I just don't usually care for Oprah's choices. I'm just saying...)
Good Omens was suggested by a friend of mine. Apparently it is a funny account of the coming Apocolypse, which, as a personal rule, do NOT read about, but this one appealed to me. Here's a blurb:
According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.
So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon -- both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle -- are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist...
This truly is right up my alley because I love dark humor. (The Royal Tennenbaums anyone?) I think I'll enjoy it.

These little sweeties are currently living in our garage. There are 5 of them and I am in love with them all already! They are 3 weeks old today!
Think Mr. SS will let me keep them all? You're right, probably not. The momma cat, Buddie, is officially his cat, but I like to claim her as mine, too. She's precious, don't let the grimmace in this photo fool you.

Wanna know what makes me MOST happy? My husband. He is my best friend, my soul mate, my protector, my confidant, my very favorite person. I love him more than he will ever understand. We've been married a little over a year and it's been the best year of my life.
Here are just a few of his wonderful qualities:
He's funny, intelligent, and outgoing.
He does ALL of the laundry because he's a bit OCD about it, which is perfect for me because I hate laundry.
He likes to clean. Yes, he really does. Again, I hate to clean. Atleast we can clean together and it feels less gruelling.
He loves movies more than I do and will even watch my girly, romantic comedies without complaint. (I mean, he took me to see Hannah Montana twice--once at the theater and once at the drive-in--but let's ignore the fact that I loved that movie, okay? What can I say, it's a guilty pleasure...)
He let me have my dog--who was living at my parents' house until I got out of college--even though he is avidly against having animals in the house.
He lets me take really long Sunday afternoon naps.
He never complains about my craft stuff laying all over the house.
...and so many more that I could never name them all.
Needless to say, I'm a very lucky gal. The luckiest. I hope each of you find what we have together.

To join in on the fun, post a photo and words on your blog about one thing (person, idea, thought, etc.) that makes you happy. Do this each day through Saturday. If you go to her blog and tell her you are participating, she will put you on her blog roll!
So here's to Happy Monday!
This past Saturday, I participated in Western Baptist Hospital's annual Childbirth Fair. Here's me and my table!
1) a successful day at the Childbirth Fair and lots of really nice compliments from some really sweet pregnant ladies and daddies-to-be
2) a REALLY great friend who gave up her Friday night and Saturday morning to help me be successful at said event. We've been calling her my "marketing director" for awhile now, but after this weekend it's official! She sold my stuff way better than I could ever have done and I owe her big time!
Here she is! Ready to sell!
What makes you happy today?

Each vendor donated a $50 value door prize for one lucky mom-to-be. Here's mine:
On another note: Here lately I've been loving the pocket tissue holders that people have been making, and I always need tissues in my purse, so I decided to whip one up myself! Since I love owls so much, I decided I needed to make mine out of owl fabric, of course.
It turned out so great that I decided to offer one in my store! You can check it out here =)

Here are some of the bibs I have been making:)
You can get the pattern here. It's very easy:) You'll love it!
Also, I recently found this site for free blogger templates, but I mostly love the free monthly calendar desktop wallpapers. Here's the one for August:

Here it is: "laviejatuntun".
Seriously, people, I cannot make this stuff up. I'm not even sure that's a real word in a foreign language. Maybe it is. Who am I to decide? What do you think?
Oh, I almost forgot! This keyword was at the top of the list, too, because it registered not only once, but twice! Perhaps from the same surfer. I can only hope. I'm pretty sure nothing in my shop has anything to do with whatever this word means.
Care to share your own crazy keywords? I'd love to hear 'em!
In other news: I'm 1/3 of the way through Stephenie Meyer's The Host. I have to say, I've not yet been "gripped." The gal who loaned it to me assures me that I'm getting close to the good stuff. I will stick it through to the end though. Here's hoping!
