7 Quick Takes Friday

I would like to go to the beach.

I am a big fan of entering giveaways all over blogland.  There are so many neat things out there!  One really cool blog is Etsy Giveaways and it is just what the name says--a blog full of giveaways of just Etsy stuff.  I recently won a really cool prize over At The Picket Fence, this beautiful necklace by Tahra.  I love it!  It is a little darker in person.

Speaking of jewelry, I have a pair of earrings that I've decided to call "The Forever Backwards Earrings".  They are super cute little hoops with a pink rhinestone encrusted bow on one side.  However, I guess the angle of my ears is wrong because if the bows are pointed in they look backwards, but if I point them out they still look backwards.  Anyone else have a problem like this?

See what I mean?  In the first picture the decoration is pointed towards my face, but the other way the bow is just being put into my hair.

Yogurt, peach, and strawberry smoothie=YUM.  I was hoping that Catherine would like this so that she could get some more nutrients into her little body, but sadly she didn't.  However, I am thinking this wouldn't be such a bad way to start everyday for me! (This giant cup is less than 200 calories!)

Have you heard of  If you wear glasses you need to check them out right now.  They are running one of their specials where first time customers get a free pair of glasses.  You do have to pay shipping and handling and if you do any lens upgrades those can get expensive--but I have a pretty basic prescription and I ordered a pair last night and my total was less than $8.  I wanted something different from either of the two pairs that I have (both which I really love) so I chose this pair:
(Yes, there is some pink in this pair!)  I've never ordered glasses online before, but this just seemed like too good of a deal to pass up.

If you've ever been to craft fair either as a vendor or a customer, I'd love your feedback on my It's Craft Fair Time Again post!

These fish magnets were in Catherine's Easter basket.  I need to learn the names of everything... I just know all the easy ones.

  1. Wow! Thanks so much for sharing the glasses website! My glasses are about 5 years old and I keep holding off on buying new ones because of the cost.

    1. Not a problem! Yeah, I only recently got a couple of new pairs--before that I had one pair for over eight years--but places like these make it so much easier! :-)

  2. Magnets are a great idea for an Easter gift. We use stickers a lot in gift baskets around here, although I did try out some jellybeans this year. Not sure I'll do that again! Those little stampers that curl up into their own ink pad are great too, and not messy. I think I bought 6 of them at the Dollar Store.

  3. That smoothie looks so good...I am your newest follower from the Networking Blog Hop! I would love if you would check out my blog and if you like what you see follow back :)
