Birthday wishes

Mr. B keeps asking what I want for my b'day. He hates my answers, tells me they are not "fun." I guess I am just practical, what can I say, he should be happy I am not asking to dripping with diamonds ! So here are some of my wishes :

new cutting boards to replace the stained ones I have
cereal container
new small pans for eggs & omelets
Lunch w Mr. B
Peach Tarts from Yankee Candle, my fave
I'd like an umbrella too. My favorite one disappeared and the other one I have is not good for thunderstorms.  I wish there were more exciting things but I think these are pretty cool.

Happy weekend everyone, hope you do something fantastic !

Kindness

This past Christmas I asked for a magazine subscription from my mother. I intended to ask for Country Living, but wrote Good Housekeeping instead. Oh well, win some lose some. I received the July issue yesterday and there was an article that I found quite interesting. It listed 50 simple acts of kindness.


Here's a few I loved :
# 2 Make a struggling family's summer by buying them a season pass to a municipal pool.
#3 Help a friend see today in a wondrous new light : Hand him or her a kaleidoscope
# Shower the pediatric wing of a hospital with $1 coloring books and $2 boxes of new crayons.
#6 Hang a sign on a bulletin board that says "take what you need"- with tear-off tabs for Love, Hope Faith and Courage.
#31 Load extra change into the vending machine to buy the next person a coke.
#34 Forgive someone. Repeat as necessary.

 Some that I've actually done :
# 4 If you are in a long line, invite the person behind you to go first.
#9 Curb road rage: Let other cars merge onto the highway.
#7 Bring courtesy back in an instant : Hold the door open with a flourish.
#33 Name a star after someone. (I've done this twice)
#43 Bring your spouse coffee in bed.

Looks like I need to try some more, my already done list is a little light =).

I'm bacccccccccccccccccccckkkkkkk

Hey everyone ! I am back no more hiatus !!! Just needed some time to step back and chill. But now I am back.
As I've wandered  the Internet I came to one of my favorite sites that I used and have recommended to many, Save-on-crafts. Well, today I think I may have hit some kind of home decor jackpot. Let me show you the awesomeness I found on their site. So so cool.











 

Pretty cool right?
