I'm in the Zone

5 Reasons I think I've entered the Twilight Zone:

  1. A couple of Sunday's ago I was getting ready for Church and realized I put my bra on inside out. I took it off and put it back on and realized I put it on inside out again. If I'm lyin' I'm dyin' -  I did it again a third time.
  2. Tuesday I changed clothes after work to go to Zumba. When I got there, I went to the bathroom and realized I had my shorts on backwards.
  3. Today I changed clothes after work to go to Zumba and guess what? My bra was inside out.

    4.   I haven't changed out my toenail polish in about 3 weeks. Usually I do it every 4 or 5 days.
    5.   I just took a shower and my stick-straight hair is drying curly????

I have no more words.

The Nerd in Me

Have I told you that books are a passion of mine? I heart them, swoon for them and can't imagine life without them. I can lose myself in books for hours at a time and a perfect vacation is me, by a pool, with an endless supply of books. Believe it or not, I started college with the intentions of getting a Masters in Library Science. Oh yes, my dream was to be a librarian. But then I got sick of school around year 2 and it was all I could do to just graduate with a degree. I changed my tune real quick about getting a Masters.

Needless to say, I have quite a few books. I try to purge every once in a while - usually when Mama Hen has a yard sale - but there's just some books that I can't part with. Unfortunately, storage for these books has been a dilemma for quite a while. I had this one bookshelf in my bedroom that was completely filled to capacity. Each shelf had books double-rowed and books laying on top of other books. It made me sad.

I also had this baby bookshelf in my sewing room where I kept Bible studies and commentaries. I'm almost embarrassed to show you this picture - it's terrible.

Jay and I looked forever for a really nice double bookshelf that wouldn't put us in the poor house but we were sadly not successful. I got fed up a couple of weeks ago and ordered two new bookshelves from Overstock. They came in last week and Hubs was sweet enough to put them together.

I ended up putting them in my sewing room and they went from this

to this

to this.

Next I moved the stuff from my baby bookshelf to the one in my bedroom. Better, huh?

I'm not gonna lie. I'm in love. And I'll admit it - I just go back there and smile. I'll leave you with this becauseI have felt this way so many times:

You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend. ~Paul Sweeney

Party like You're 39!

Guess what happened 39 years ago today... My Hubs came into the world and guess what? The world hasn't been the same since! Just look at this adorable chunk of baby goodness!!!

We had a little party Sunday night and it was really fun. It was just our families and J2's family. We laughed a TON!

I will have to say though, my favorite part of the evening came a little later when Jay opened a card from Kay and Keith that told him he is going to be an Uncle!!! Oh my word, I can't tell you how excited I am to have a little baby on the Sharpe side of the family!

Jay and I decided we're gonna get pregnant real quick and make an announcement on Kay's birthday in September. OK, I'm kidding. Really. I promise. We're gonna wait till Christmas. OK - kidding again! I know, it's just too much fun!

A Weekend of Happiness

It's Monday at 7:24am and I'm sitting on my couch half-watching a Law & Order: Criminal Intent rerun. That can only mean that it's a work Holiday and I can blessedly stay in my pajamas all day if I want to. I'm not sure that's going to happen but it could, and that's all my little heart needs to be happy right now.

I had a really good weekend. Saturday morning I woke up sans the alarm clock and got ready for an afternoon at Mama Hen's. Unfortunately, a big ol' zit decided to wakeup on my face too. I also decided that my eyebrows needed a little attention and when I got through, I looked like Dylan McKay from 90210.

(Also, I made a quick trip to Publix and I just can't describe how excited I was when I used my coupons and got some French's mustard for FREE! The fact that I don't like mustard makes absolutely no difference because it was FREE YA'LL! )

We were about 20 minutes into our 30 minute drive to Mama Hen's. when Jay said, "Did you get the Boston Butt out of the fridge?" The fact that we didn't get in a fight as we made a 45 minute detour back to the house says a lot about the state of our 11 year marriage these days. It ended up being a perfectly great day.

Yesterday we went to Church, watched a Yankee's game and then I sat out on my back porch and read a book. DOESN'T.GET.MUCH.BETTER.THAN.THAT! Amen and Amen.
