I am new to the world of Etsy but I am quickly learning that, much like the blogging world, it is important to branch out and make connections. I am still trying to get used to updating both regularly. I am so excited and honored that two of my items have been featured on two different blogs:

As this was our 6th Valentine's Day together, we tend to fore go traditional gifts and go for more unique/creative gifts. For the past year my brother and sister in law have been telling my husband that he would love this show that they watch: Dexter. The basic premise is that this man is a blood analyst who actually hunts down and kills these heinous criminals. All of a sudden it seems that everyone we know is in love with this show. Hubby hasn't show much interest in it until a few weeks ago when he looked for it at Best Buy so I thought that it would be a rather ironic gift - the first season of a show about a vengeance killer for the 'most romantic day of the year'. We have watched one and a half episodes so far and are not yet seeing the appeal . . . For anyone that watches it - does it get better or is it a show where if we are not hooked now we never will be?

Disney is doing a 'give a day, get a day' deal this year - you do a day of service, you get a day at one of their parks and so husband and I decided to do it with the girls in our youth group. We spent all day Saturday hiking through a canyon and inspecting different man holes for tampering. It was a gorgeous day and a great way to start off the Valentine's Day weekend! I love that we were able to help the girls do something for others for Valentines while bonding with each other

I heard on the radio this morning that MAC has come out with a Lady Gaga lipstick as part of their women's health ad campaign. Guess what store happens to be across from my work downtown and guess what I most definately am going to have to go in and get tomorrow . . .

While I very rarely complain about the weather here in Southern California, I do occasionally miss the cool crisp weather of New England. Last night my husband made our very first fire ever and it was the perfect ending to short, busy weekend

Grades are due tomorrow. At the end of every semester I am reminded of why I resolve at the beginning of every new semester to stay organized and up to date with all of my grading. It's going to be a long night. NOT.FUN.

I did not grow up with animals so until recently I never understood people's infatuation with their pets. About a year and a half ago we started talking about getting a dog. At first I really wanted to get a Yorkie but the prices were quite far out of our range and so I just kept on looking. I saw some advertising puppies for sale and the picture was so cute that we went to look at them. We fell absolutely in love and went back the next day to put a deposit. We had decided to get two because we both work and they could play together while we're gone ( we have a good size fenced in yard so that they can also be outside during the day)Aside from out house, these two little guys are the best investment we have ever made since we've been married. Their mom was a chow and their dad was a pug and they are just the sweetest things. While they are now too big for me to carry, my husband still carries them around our home like babies. He grew up with animals and is Dr. Doolittle when it comes to dogs. It is such fun to these two who are so affectionate and caring. They love to snuggle on the couch when I am doing school work, greet me in the morning with happy licks and trying to jump over one another while popping their heads up over the fence when they hear my car pull in. I now completely understand this thing called puppy love

My favorite performance of the night was Pink. I didn't even know the song that she sang but a few minutes into singing her dress transformed into a swing and she sang while suspended from the ceiling with Cirque du Soleil style performers around her. There was even water! I am not one who runs out to buy her latest music but she is amazing - at the last award show she performed while on a trapeze! Pink is a rock star!
