more great stuff

Man, I am totally LOVING my mailbox this week...aside from that tiny issue of the post being closed on Monday.  But I will overlook that complaint.

Everyday something awesome has arrived.

Today has been no exception...

First, my Anthropologie Catalog arrived...squeal.
{I think I'm turning into a pig, I've had so many things to squeal over lately}
Man, is it possible that one store could have in it's possession everything that is lovely and covetable?
Yes, and it's name is Anthropologie.

This catalog did not disappoint.
A few of the new items to put on my list of things to wish I could wish for are:

Greenfinch Setee
Bike Lane Dress

So those are my most drooled over items in their recent catalog.

While I'm on the topic of Anthro, here are my most favorite pieces of their furniture...

Can't you envision me lounging on that Poppy Covered Sofa?
MAN, I LOVE IT!  It's my fave.  Maybe it'll go on sale?

The best part about the Anthro catalog is tearing out the pages, wiping off the drool, and making envelopes :)

Next up for mail arrivals is my netflix dvd.  What did I get?

I Love this movie.  I saw it with my little sis when it came out.  Now I get to enjoy it at home, until I mail it back...  This should probably go on my "to-buy" list at some point.  I love Anne Hathaway.  The main reason being that she reminds me of my dear friend Sharon.  Not really in looks, except they both are beautiful and had naturally gorgeous red lips.  But the highest similarity is in quirkiness.  When Princess Diaries came out, I couldn't stop thinking "this is Sharon, this is Sharon, this is Sharon" over and over and over.  And ever since then, every time I see a movie with Anne Hathaway I get to think about my beloved friend Sharon, whom I miss terribly. 


So not only does this movie make me cry on it's own, but because of the missing my friend factor, I sob.
Watch it with a box of tissues.

Third up in the mail today is....

E's first grade pictures!
Took them long enough, that's for sure!

I had him sit down and personally address almost every single one.

And while I'm at it, I'll share what KennaKat worked on yesterday...
She's making a book.
It's so cute.  She even made me sew it.

Okey doke, time to get off of here, start dinner (pot roast, mmm), finish preparing for the meeting,
I can't wait to find out when our convention is!  Hopefully our whole circuit will be together this time.

Have a great rest of the week!

Aw, I am just catching up on your blog. I was just thinking yesterday as we talked to a brother who lost his wife that
the grieving process does get easier over time. I used to wake up crying on a regular basis, and now it's very rare. But this really got me. In a good way. Thank you for being such a loyal friend! Now I definitely need to watch this movie :D.
