Miscellany Monday

Our weekend was fairly low key, some by choice, some not... Friday night we celebrated my sister in law's birthday, Addaline had a play date, and Macie had a sleepover with my in laws. Saturday we finally purchased our Disney tickets, the last major thing we needed to do before our trip, WHOO HOO! Saturday when we went to pick Macie up, she wasn't feeling too well. We came home and she ended up getting sick, took her temp and sure enough she was running a low grade fever. We had her rest in her bed the rest of the afternoon/evening, and all day yesterday. She is back to her normal perky self today, and went to school this morning. Even though she was sick, I'm thankful it was a super fast sickness.


Saturday evening G stayed home with the girls so I could go see this movie with one of my girlfriends. I've been wanting to read the book but ended up seeing the movie first. I'm WAY to slow of a reader to have the patience to wait! Now I want to read the next book, Something Blue though. We'll see how that goes! The actor who played Dex in the movie, HELLO!


I've been bugaboo'ing Gerrad about getting me a nook, I mean, maybe it will help me read books faster, right?! HA! I found a great deal on one on amazon's deal news website and sent it to him, I'm still holding onto hope that my obnoxious hints might finally be noticed ;) 


So one of my favorite bloggers sent me an invite to Pinterest last week, at first I really didn't get to into it, but now I'm HOOKED! If you haven't heard of it before, it's a website where you can catalog all the things you love, all you have to do is add a button to your toolbar, and click it to save your favorite rooms/recipes/photos/decorations/designs/clothing items, etc.... Who doesn't love a site that houses all the things you love, without having to use 8 million bookmark tabs?!! No brainer! If you use Pinterest, what's your username? I'm sure I want to follow your pins :)

All this Pintrest stuff is really making me think...

I am trying to resist the urge to join yet ANOTHER social media type thing...

We'll see how long it takes me to cave! Probably not long. :)

I've heard a lot about this site. How do you get started?!

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

I just heard about Pinterest today from another blogger. Maybe I will have to check it out!

Can't wait to see Something Borrowes. Read the books years ago and they quickly became my favorites!

Haven't tried Pintrest yet. Still trying to decide whether or not I want to create a Facebook page for my blog and a Twitter account. And bookmark WeHertIt, as I've noticed a lot of bloggers get pictures from there that are not of celebrities/movies/TV shows/books or the person's loved ones.

Wasn't Something Borrowed wonderful? My mom and I saw it last weekend while she and my dad were here for Family Weekend. Absolutely darling! She and I both love John Krasinski from The Office and I've had kind of a girl crush on Ginnifer Goodwin since Mona Lisa Smile. But I agree: the guy who plays Dex is friggin' HOT!

I'm obsessed with Pinterest!!! I've been a repinning fool lately!! haha

Rebekah said...

I'm glad Macie is feeling better! Yay for Disney tickets! I REALLY hope you get a Nook. Ereaders are amazing. I'm on Pinterest, but I've had ZERO time to actually look at it and get hooked. Someday soon I'll play around on it!

Angie said...

I must check out Pintrest. Every one is talking about it! I think I must be missing out!

Heather said...

I loved Something Borrowed! And Dex is a hottie, but I love me some John Krasinski.

Katie said...

And I am totally stealing the word bugaboo'ing. Cracked me up!
