Happy Thursday to you all! Whoooo-whhhheeee did you watch the CMA’s last night? (that is the Country Music Awards for those of you NOT in the know lol)—my fave night of the YEAR (well almost hee hee)! I was ready in my chair, with my PF Changs and my laptop---laptop? Yeah cuz I like to Facebook & Tweet during it of course…duh! Me and some gals (hey Lisa, Bridget, Christine, Tori) were all over FACEBOOK last nite, LOL—good times!! The intro with Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood and Hank Williams Jr got me chuckling—too funny and the Tim McGraw & Faith Barbies (still chucklin)! BUT OMG DID YOU SEE LUKE BRYAN BRING da’ house DOWN—I was almost past the point of no return. The cats and dogs evacuated the room cuz my HOUSE WAS ON FIRE I SWEAR—he lit it up!!! Hubby was a good sport cuz he already knows I’m a NUT---we were screeching and shaking our thangggg in the DEAN house last night!!! And that Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland can sing, how I do love her (if I went to the other side I would SO DATE her, LOL, no worries though)! Alexa and I had a good ole’ time watching it (and yep the “boys” just rolled their eyes as I rewinded..paused…rewinded..umm was that Luke Bryan’s bum…umm look its Zac Brown Band…ooh ooh Tim McHottie in black hat…ohhhhh!!) I just love country music and artists, down to earth, fun and just plain good singing! That was the best CMA’s I ever saw in a LONG time!! EXCELLENT and yep I watched it 3 times already hee hee cuz I am like a woman obsessed! And because I like to keep y’all up to date with good stuff’s (hee hee) I’m sharing a song that I am quite enjoying by a newer female country group. One thing that is lacking in country music is girl groups—no one since the Dixie Chicks (sigh…come back Dixie Chicks..I luv uuuuuu) really have lit things up much. But these gals from the group “Stealing Angels” are pretty darn good and they can harmonize too—so I’m sharing their song with you today that I am listening to right now Let me know if you like ‘em too—their song is on ITunes too!
Since we are talking about ITunes and how much money $$ it sucks from me (yep every Tuesday it sucks more from me cuz’ I’m a SUCKER) LOL! Well Steve Jobs created ITunes along with all my other fave stuffs like my Iphone, Ipad, Ipod, Apple TV, and Mac Air Book (ummm yeah I’m a total Apple techno geek girl) let’s talk about his biography. I got it the first day, downloaded on my Ipad of course and finished it in 3 days flat and I LOVED it, every line of it and I highlited it to death. I am a closet techno geek dontcha’ know—yep a computer science major I am and I was the only girl in all the computer science, programming classes & computer bowls (challenges) and proud of it. So this book appealed to me on so many levels—although my family is glad that I’m done with it so I will stop saying “did you know the Iphone has gorilla glass on it” and more LOL! They got a bit sick of me but I don’t care of course---I always say that everyone should SHARE their passions, be vocal and show your love of something. Just so happens that I’m PASSIONATE about a lot of things………………….LMBO…………..bad for them but GREAT for me !! So if you like tech talk, inventions and Steve Jobs then read this book. If not then read Karen White’s awesome 3rd in the trilogy “The Strangers on Montagu Street” (umm awesomely good) or Nora Roberts new trilogy “Next Always: Inn Boonsboro” which I personally love cuz I lived in Boonsboro and near Nora (its really good too)!
PS—now because a birdie (umm Lisa N) told me that Luke Bryan will be at an outdoor country festival in Eau Claire, WI next summer…WELL Suzanne will be teaching in WI that week ok LOL! For sure and I’m gonna be at that Country Jam all 3 days too shakin’ my thang—and hey my family is from that area so I am just goin’ back to my roots…just saying! So if you live in WI I’m coming in JULY—whoooootttttttttttttt! (prepare yourselves)
I know, I know this is just about the cutest stocking stuffer evah’ right? Such a cutie patootie and from the NEW Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection at Magnolia-licious—her name is “Tucked Tilda” (she’s out of stock now but more are coming and the mini one is here). I love using non-traditional colors for holiday projects—just a bit more fun and modern feeling. And I gotta get to work on holiday projects cuz I ammmm behind (what else is new right) and not too many more days until Christmas YIKES!!
My papers are new by My Minds Eye (12 Days of Christmas) and I loved the fun patterns and colors. I used one of my jumbo MS holly punches (shaded the leaves with SU ink) and added some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. The sentiment is from PTI and I blinged it up with rhinestones & pearls.
Yes this lil’ sweetie is colored with Copics—RV17,RV13,RV10 / BG18,BG13,BG11,BG10 / YG25,YG03,G20 /E11,E00,R20 / E35,YR23,YR20. I put some Stickles on the fur trim of the stocking and the heel of the stocking. She’s so darn cute!!
