Week of Thanks, Week Twenty Eight

260. Not being one bit scared for an interview. (A teacher once told me nerves mean you're passionate about something. That you care. But I don't believe that right now. I care, and I wasn't nervous. Which is huge for me.)

261. A job.

262. When Design Star comes back on TV. I'm all sorts of inspired by those people. (PS! That annoying British guy isn't hosting it this year. THANK. GOD.)

263. Reading 15 books in 7 months. Which is approx 2 books a month, which is 10 books away from being halfway to my goal of 50 books for the year. I need to get my rear in gear. But 15 books?! That's impressive.

264. An organized unmentionables drawer. Actually, and organized dresser. A dresser in which the drawers actually close because all of the clothes are folded neatly and perfectly and random sleeves and cuffs and hems and other clothing parts aren't haphazardly sticking out preventing closure and promising to jump out at you at 5:00 am when you blindly crawl to the bathroom and run knee first into the sharpest corner of the stupid dresser.

265. Perfect run on sentences.

266. Sewing date with my mother. AND finishing my first everrr project with my first everrr sewing machine! Photos, soon, promise!

267. New purse! Bought with love by Evan. In real life, it's not that yellow. It's more mustardy.

6 loves:

  1. I'm so, so happy for you that you got the job! Remember how nervous you were just to walk into DB to get an application?? I'm so happy for you! Look how far you've come. =]

    I've never seen Design Star, but I loveeeeeed Project Runway when I had cable.

    15 books is SO impressive. I have finished 0 books this year, and that is just flat out depressing. I read too many blogs, man, it's keeping me from books! (at least, that's what I'm going to tell myself)

    Do you follow that one blog where she recently posted about "less is more in the underwear drawer"? if you read it, awesome. If not, I will find you the link, because it was such a good post, and organized unmentionables drawer is a must. So yeah, good job on that too. =]

    Yay for sewing!! And cuteee purse. I want to see it in person. Let's hang out soon soon soon! we have so much we have to do!

  2. 15 books? thats great! i would love if you posted your favorite books, because i love to read, but i always end up getting horrible books!

  3. Yay job! Seriously that is the best feeling!
    I'm really impressed with your 15 books. I think I've only read 7. I've been a slow reader this year!
    Sewing dates are my new favorite. It's so fun to learn and get to spend that time with my momma! I can't wait to see your finished product and your new beauty!
    Love the purse. What a sweet guy!

  4. Um, LOVE the purse! Too cute!

    And I agree with you on the nervous thing. I think a few jitters are ok (adreneline high and all)but once you're in the moment, you're in the moment, no nerves. Awesome

    Yay for organized drawers and sewing projects! I can't wait to see what you make! XD

  5. I want to hear about the new jobbbbbb. Imma gonna text you. Obvs, not right now. It may be 3AM.

  6. Hi Instagram pal! I love the new bag. Cute blog too!
