Tentacle Tuesday

Hi!  So how have you been?  Life has been crazy and grand lately.  I may have taken a late night drive last Thursday night with 3 friends and wound up at the beach for a long weekend.  What?!?!?!  I know.  It was grand.  Let me re-cap quickly what we did.  So A) We slept. B) We laid on the beach all day long…this includes daily naps on the beach as well. C) We ate good food and drank yummy drinks. D) We watched movies.  E) We ate. And drank.  Again. and F) We laughed.  It was outrageously amazing.  I highly recommend it.  Top notch.

We ate at The Hangout one night and I discovered the most amazing little thing…finger tentacles.  They are absurdly gross and wonderful and I could not quit laughing.  After Instagramming a very thought provoking picture of me and full on 10 tentacle fingers, Susan discovered the hash tag #tentacleTuesday.  It’s a real thing.  It exists.  And a collage of all the finger tentacle pictures Marcie took on my phone needed to happen asap.  The first text I had this morning was from Susan, “Waiting…tick tock.”  It was officially Tentacle Tuesday and she wanted to see this amazing collage grace my Instagram feed for all to enjoy…and I aim to please.  I went with the crazy, mid motion, evil tentacle scientist in the middle for more of a dramatic affect.  I feel like it really hit the spot.

In other random news, I’m happy to report Refresh Beauty has now changed my age to 47 versus 57, so I feel this is a step in the right direction.  At least I’m not collecting social security and have an AARP membership anymore.  Baby steps people.  Baby steps.

I would like to point out there have been a slew of new comments…lots from you guys, which get deleted by the lovelies at Refresh Beauty…and then they block you from commenting.  Ha.  There were a few new comments I lurved…like serious lurve…had me crying with laughter…

“You still look 47 sweet pea”  Say it ain’t sooooooooo!

and “She look 45”.  Well thank you kind lady for taking my age down 2 additional years.  I will take what I can get.

And poor Josevard Rock, well, she just wants a job.

If you’re just looking for a good laugh…the rest of the comments are pretty great too.

This week is teacher appreciation week.  First why, oh why, do they put it right next to the end of the year?  Wowzas that’s a lot to get parents to help with.  Anyone else look Pinterest up and down for a million and one good ideas??!?!?!  Well, look no further, I’m going to tell you the way to a teacher’s heart.  I’m going with things like…Noonday Collection, cold hard cash money and gift cards.  Boom.  I promise you your special teacher will love you for it.  Money and gift cards are not impersonal…they are straight up awesome and say, “Hey.  We think you are a damn good teacher.”  The end.

I’m working.  Like a crazy.  If you have placed an order, I promise I’m working towards it.  Lots of name pillows, a few canvases and more key fobs.  So fun.  I love what I do.  Thank you for supporting my small handmade business.  I appreciate it so much.  And I am so excited to be sending Full Count a big check this week for our trips to Nicaragua this summer.  You guys rock!

There are still 2 canvases and 2 sets of 100 flags bunting strands available for purchase.  I even reduced the price of the canvases a bit.  Check them out HERE.

And lastly, the Noonday Collection giveaway fundraiser ends this Thursday and I will post the winner on Friday.  I am so flippin’ excited to see which donor I’ll be shipping over $700 worth of Noonday Collection to.  It’s insane.  And there’s still plenty of time to donate.  You can get in on the fun and read all the details HERE.

Happy happy Tuesday!

    There’s that awesome pillow! Can’t wait to hug it in person!

    And you aren’t a day over 42 LOL! Seriously though, you are crazy if you think you look any older than 25. I mean, I the kids are one thing, but you’ve got a baby face!
