|Columbia coat I picked up at Fred Meyer with some Christmas money. 40% off and oh-so-pretty.|
Not as warm as my marshmallow coat, but oh-so-pretty.
2. My birthday is next Thursday. Scott thought it was this week. When he went to buy me a present, he told the sales lady my birthday was January 5th.
My birthday is not January 5th.
3 years ago, he was in Afghanistan and he forgot my birthday.
He also told someone our wedding was September 17th. Our wedding was September 12th.
I'll never let him forget these mistakes because I have a crazy good memory and he, obviously, does not.
3. I made my own pizza dough, successfully, for the first time ever last week. I recommend this recipe. One of my life's goals is now accomplished. I've made it twice more since then, so it wasn't a fluke.
4. Yesterday, I posted all about our Carnival Cruise adventure. At least it was memorable, right?
5. Amber is starting a 52 Weeks of Kindness Challenge. The idea is to do one random act of kindness a week. I had trouble coming up with an idea this week. I mean, anyone can buy someone's coffee, right? While I'm not opposed to doing that, I want to think outside the box. I'm nowhere near as generous or caring as my husband...(he chipped ice off of someone's driveway for 4 hours last week..saint). However, this week, I gave 2 giant bags and 2 big boxes of clothes/accessories/books to a thrift store. I may benefit from it in the sense that I get rid of clutter (I was saving knock-off purses from college that I had never actually used...why????), but I really don't get anything in return. I don't write it off as tax credit, I don't sell them Plato's Closet-style, or anything like that.
I just took a good hard look at everything we were stuffing away in our spare bedrooms and said, "I haven't used that in 3 years..could someone else?"
