I splurged on myself and bought a new car!!! The last time I bought a new car was in my late 20's...so it's time to live a little! I bought the smallest in their SUV line (2014 BMW X1 s28i).
Paula and Nic are already fighting over who would get this car in 10 years.
SIDE NOTE: a little research tells me that "beemer" should be spelled "bimmer"
Bimmer - proper accepted slang for BMW cars. Most people don't know this.
Beamer/Beemer - proper accepted slang for BMW motorcycles. You will hear this term used incorrectly by many people.
Bummer - When you get a speeding ticket.
Bitter - Another German car. Very rare; hand built.
AND last week I bought the most amazing steam cleaner....the pictures will speak for itself:
A friend of mine was complaining that her boyfriend hired a hot Brazilian housekeeper which is causing her a lot of grief...my advice to her is to get a super duper awesome steamer and clean her house herself!
Loving my new toys! Life is so GOOOOOOD right now.
The residents of Olive Street meet once a month (always the second Friday of the month) to gossip and catchup. We take turn hosting the block party in our front yard....everyone brings a dish to share. This year we signed up for September. There's some witty people on the street whose flyer (invitation) has been quite humorous. I'm not witty by nature, so wanted to come up with something different as an invitation. It was suggested to us to have a camping theme...and to call it "CAMP WEST END" since we are at the west end of the street.
This is what I came up with:
Somebody's been leaving flamingos in our front yard....a few would show up each morning. I went out to turn off the lights and spotted a couple more tonight! Current count = 15 flamingos
Sanda, Sanda, Sanda... the other night I brought out the pencil case you made for me....and believe it or not....
It just dawned on me that you have little travel trailers as the cover!!!!!!!!!!!
I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know how I missed that when I first saw it - I must have thought they were little color blocks?!?!?? I totally freaked out when I realized what they were. You are too adorable!!!
Thank you for putting in so much thought in your gifts....and your sewing skills are flawless.
