7 Quick Takes

I'm glad it's Friday.  I know that I'm "just" a Stay At Home Mom, but I enjoy (lazy) weekends too!

We just watched X-Men: First Class this week.  I really enjoyed it!  Have you seen it?  What did you think?

This week we made a trip to the library.  I've just been borrowing books online with my Kindle and we have lots of books and such for Catherine, so it has actually been a while since our last visit.  However, there were some books that I had reserved and I wanted to get some new kids books.  I borrowed the book Curious Creatures, by David FitzSimmons, and I must say that I highly recommend it!  The pictures are beautiful and the text is informative and amusing.

Speaking of books on Kindle, I am currently reading Bob Harper's The Skinny Rules.  I really like him on the Biggest Loser, but I have to say, he doesn't really have a great writing style.  He's a trainer, not an author.  That being said, I do like a lot of what he has to say, and no one can deny that he gets results.  


How old is the oldest shirt that you somewhat regularly wear?  I have a t-shirt from my 1999 swim team that I like to wear still.  My husband doesn't really understand what I still have/wear this shirt, but I like it!  I loved swimming for the Barracudas so it has so much nostalgia for me, plus we always got large shirts, so it actually fits now!

Did you see my newest pair of glasses?

I need to add some listings to my Etsy shop.  I am participating in A Crafter's Dream Giveaway this month!  It starts this weekend, and my prize is a $25 shop credit!  Dear Reader, I'm curious, have you ever purchased something from Etsy?  Why or why not?

A Crafter's Dream Giveaway February 2013


  1. I have purchased a few things from Etsy! I love looking through Etsy stores. You never know what you are going to find!

  2. My oldest t shirt is about 15 years old.

  3. Yay!! It's Friday :) We've made it thru yet another week!

  4. my oldest shirt is from swim team too! I think it was from 2000, though, so you beat me by one year. ;-)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love reading each and every one!
