Yes, of course the license plate I decide to crouch down and take a picture of would still have the owner sitting inside the car. But I’m glad I did. The woman saw me take the pic, got out of her car, and asked if I wanted to hear the story.

Of course I did.

Well, her grandparents were the first ones to have a personalized tag in the state of Oklahoma. They were farmers. And … (she dramatically paused) their last name was MacDonald.

The plate had then been on her mom’s car until a year ago, but since she’s now older and was getting agitated about people approaching her car to take pictures, this lady had the plate transferred to her car.

Only I would have this experience in a parking lot. But I do now have another new friend in Tulsa.

And her name is Mac.


Mixed signals.

Yesterday I was adamantly waving back to someone behind me at the stoplight just outside of work. As I waved, I began trying to figure out who it was that was trying to get my attention.

Then I realized she was wiping off her rearview mirror.

I blame her for the mixed signals.

It’s Dorothy. Oh wait, no. It’s me.

The Resolution: Be bolder

I think that someone’s New Year’s resolution was to get back at the gym. That AND to make bold moves in 2014.

Well, this person is obviously tackling both at the same time.

Yes, to put your shoes in the cubby despite the posted “request” is bold. To place them in the cubby right under the sign? BOLDER.

Congrats on your successful resolution.

Christmas Crafting once again

12.12.2013 § Leave a comment

Somehow Christmas snuck up on me this year. Well, I should rephrase that.

The time when I should have started my DIY Christmas tree ornaments snuck up on me … and then also passed!

Sure, my friend and I started discussing our Christmas tree themes back in July. Yet my build started the weekend before Thanksgiving. Not the ideal conditions for prime crafting.

Luckily I was able to save Christmas (you’re welcome) by building on last year’s Reduce, Reuse, Resparkle theme instead of starting over completely.  

The additions? Burlap leaves with white and gold pinecones. Simple, yet devastatingly gorgeous. Or devastatingly simplistic. I haven’t decided.

As for next year’s theme, our lesson is to start planning discussions in January with actual crafting commencing in July.

Anyone up for a Fourth of July Christmas Crafting Party?

Hope so. Save the dates are going out next week.
