the "tough" goes hunting and when the "tough" goes hunting, I go shopping.  Isn't that the way it should be?  I mean come on, he left me all alone with three children for 10 days.  I couldn't possibly be cheered up any other way, right?  So I felt I had to shop.  I just knew he was going to forget my "half birthday" and I didn't want him to feel bad when he did….so for the sake of a happy marriage, I bought myself a little present for my "half birthday" today.  I mean, come on, I'm half a year closer to the big 40.  I've got a couple more halves before I'm there but one must make one's own happiness.

So here's what I ordered about 30 minutes after the poor man left us last week!


I've been wanting one of these for quite some time.  It's a personal cup brewer by Keurig.  I''ve felt that it'd be perfect for my office.  My customers could pick their flavor and simply enjoy, so when he left, all reservations about the purchase left too.  I've even whipped up a batch of Chocolate Almond Chunk Biscotti for us.  Won't you come and join me for a cup of coffee?  It's always warm and always fresh!

How about we stamp a card while you are here with me.  Here's a quick one that I whipped up for my downline's Diva Day today.  Sort of appropriate for being a half birthday, don't you think?


  • Stamps:  Live Like you Mean it Hostess Only Set
  • Inks:  Tangerine Tango, and Basic Black

  • CS:  Haiku, Tangerine Tango, and Vanilla.

I just got this set yesterday….oh I already love it….shh I'll tell you tomorrow what else I got yesterday, obviously Keurig wasn't the only store that benefitted!
