Potato Stamps...

Potatoes have been on sale for some time now, so I have way to many on hand. What could I do with potatoes???? Make stamps! Brianlily had a blast using these stamps to paint with. They offered a nice alternative to brushes and fingers! lol

I started smoking in 7th grade (12-13 years old), and I smoked pretty steadily through life. I considered myself a chain smoker. I smoked more than any of my smoking friends, and even more when I drank alcohol. I quit a couple of times, but it never worked. My smoking career was over like it never happened the second I saw my EPT pregnancy test read POSITIVE! In that instant it was over and I haven't smoked since, nor do I care to.

Just a little intro before I complain about something that I may even have been guilty of...

Those damn smokers that hold the next cigarette in their hands before they can smoke it! OMG I hate it! Not only is it ghetto, it's so insane to think you need it so bad that you have to have the damn thing in your hand ready to fire! Now, like I said, I may be guilty of doing this when I was a smoker...but I don't remember. I see it everyday. A person on the train, holding a damn cigarette in their hand! Sometimes they even have the lighter too!

Put the cigarette away! It's ok, once you get outside you can pull out the pack and take one out and everything will be just fine!

"God, grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference."

$2 Tuesday!

So excited that today, $2 Tuesday at the Oregon Zoo, turns out to be .50¢ Tuesday when you present your TRIMET pass! Woo Hoo! There aren't very many things to do in Portland, and with the weather being rainy most of the year, when you do have a chance to go out...ALLL OF PORTLAND IS DOING THE SAME THING! So every second Tuesday of the month, Walmart sponsors $2 admission at the Zoo! It's super packed on those days, but for .50¢ you can't go wrong. I actually didn't mind missing some exhibits because it was so cheap! lol Another cool deal is the first Friday of the month, Target sponsors FREE admission to the Portland Children's Museum. Now that's amazing because admission is $8 for anyone over the age of 1! I spent so much money there the first time I went. Now I only go the 1st Friday of the month!

BTW...had this post been written over 2 years ago...$2 Tuesday would have been the best night to get drunk! lolol

Brianlily's Bookcase...

I finally did it! Brianlily has her very own bookcase! I did a little shopping around and ended up buying this one from Target. I had lots of trouble deciding on one. Babiesrus and Walmart didn't really give me anything I had to have, and on the day I went to Target this was the only one they had. It worked well though. It's much smaller than I imagined it to be, but it's cute watching Brianlily take out her books and put them back! lol It has a space under the books for a storage box which is nice, and I love the fabric shelves. My little girl loves to read! Thank god! I'm obsessed with reading to her and now she sits in her room and reads on her own!!! LOVE IT!!!

The Grill...

Thank heavens! We finally got a grill! We've only had it a week or so and we've cooked on it almost every night! Food just tastes sooooo much better off the grill!
