Paid in full

I paid off 2 credit cards today and included nice notes asking them to please close my accounts and not to bother me anymore and dropped them off at the post office.

I have 2 more to go but I am on track to have them paid off by the end of the year then I tackle my car payment.

It's a very liberating feeling having 2 of those payments gone. I'm throwing the money I was paying on them to my next credit card and that should be done in just a couple of months! I just have had alot of little debts laying around that I could never seem to shake off.

Girly girl pampering

I got my first ever manicure tonight. My nails are finally grown out and staying grown out that I decided to splurge and treat myself to my first manicure. It was so fun and my nails are so pretty, I ended up with a french manicure.

I really wanted a pedicure too, but I just did my own home pedi a couple weeks ago so I'll wait until closer to my birthday when the weather is more likely to be sandal weather all the time and then treat myself, I haven't had one since last summer! *gasp*

It was fun to treat myself and it's nice to see my own real fingernails looking this nice!

Yep, I'm a girly girl.

I love stale peeps. I got a package of yellow chicks this weekend and brought them home, opened the package, ate one and then put them up in the cupboard to get stale.

I tested them tonight and they are about 1 day away from being ready to eat!

Even though you can now get peeps pretty much year round, I always associate them with Easter so this is about the only time of the year I pick up a package or two.

Easily Enabled

First it was Sizzix, then Crocs ... now it's altered letters.

I ordered another pair of Crocs this weekend, they shipped today and should be here in a few days.

I wanted a pair of pink ones and what is better than pink? Pink Disney crocs!

Pink Disney Crocs

Then I decided I wanted to try my hand at altering letters ... and oh am I hooked! I can't believe how easy it is! Sunday I went to Michael's and got a couple 9 inch wood letters (the white ones for those familiar with this)one for me and one for my secret bunny in the Scrapshare bunny swap. About an hour later I was done and wanting to do more!

I hit Hobby Lobby and Michaels tonight for more letters and some more supplies and made 2 more! One of my co workers is having a baby and so I made one for her new daughters room and one for her son's room. I will bring them to work tomorrow and hopes she likes them!

I can't get the digital camera working so this is not one I made but here's an idea of what they can look like when they are done:

Altered letter

Now I need more letters and more supplies, this is so addicting!

Finally some warm weather!

It hit 75 today! WooHoo!

It's quarter to 10pm right now and it is 72 still outside. Abbie, Willow and I are enjoying this chance to have windows open and the ceiling fan going.

It gives hope that spring has arrived and summer is just around the corner! The forecast for the week shows 70 tomorrow then down to mid 50s and some storms. Long as it isn't snowing I'm not complaining!
