Friday Ramblings

First off, check out this link. Not only are those cupcakes completely adorable, but do you recognize the name that is mentioned? I've been following along with Julie's weigh-in Wednesdays, and she ends up generously giving away a prize the day after, and I won! Yeah! I love Cosmo Cricket! I have no idea what I won, but whatever it is, I appreciate it very much!! They are so FUN over at that site. I would love to work for that company!

Next, I thought I would share what I got at the garage sale that I went to. I got this for Emily. She loves it! The desk set is called "Handi". Get it? The pen is a arm and hand (can you see the smiley face on the index finger?), the stapler is an arm and a fist, and the tape dispenser is a hand. I just laughed when I saw it, and I got all three pieces for $2. Can't beat that! I set it all up on Emily's desk in her room, and she just loved finding it there!! Fun stuff, and that's why I love garage sales!

Last, can I just say that Thursday was NOT a good evening for Chicago baseball? The Cubs lost their 2nd game in a row, and losing another game is not an option for them. It's a must-win situation. The thing that gets me is that the Cubs have had a spectacular season, and it's so strange knowing that they could be and should be doing better in these post season games. So, come on, go Cubs go. Get it together!! The White Sox also lost their first post season game. Let's go Chicago!

Well, I'm happy to say that I'm meeting at least two of my girlfriends for lunch today. We don't get together often enough, so it will be great to catch up with them. I hope you all have a wonderful Friday, and thanks for stopping by!

That desk set just cracked me up....what a fantastic find, Carol!!!!! Congratulations on your win! Boy, you sure are lucky!

I wish you a delightful time with your friends today!

Hubby and I have been watching the playoffs and we have been pulling for Lou and the Cubs and the White Sox....we are so partial to "Junior" Griffey; he is very much loved here because of his grace and winning spirit when he was with the Mariners. So, we are rooting for the Chicago teams also! :-))))

These are such fun Carol. I really love the stapler, that is fab!

Congratulations on your win. I wonder what your treat will be?


PS Our puppy had his first haircut on Wednesday. He went in as a ball off fluff with legs and came out all skinny and very fluff-less. I nearly cried. I didn't expect her to trim him that short. Max looks like a poodle. I will never take him to the groomers again. Sob sob!!! I will post some photos on my blog when I feel I can handle it without a melt down!! Lol!
