Lookee what I got on sale at Target Tarjhay!!  A Jansport tie dye backpack!  

Marsha got me these amazing millefiori glass pieces!  I love them!!

Russell entered a raffle at our fave restaurant, 99, and won all this golf swag!!!!  There's a beer opener, range finder, divot tool & ball marker, tees, towel, 2 bags of balls, a practice net, metal bucket, $25 gift card to a sports store, cooler, a free golf lesson (he gave that to his son) and 2 gift certs for buckets of balls at the local driving range.  I had a feeling he was gonna win when we filled out the tickets in early July.  

He finally wore his new tie dye!!!  How adorable is he?!?!  We stopped by his sister's that day and his brother groaned and called him a hippie.  This pic got a lot of 'likes' and comments on FB.  I'm sure people that knew him "pre-me" are like, 'wow, what has she done to that poor man?'  He wore it out to lunch with some friends a week later.  He's telling everyone that I've hidden all his other shirts and this is all he has.  

Then I won a $25 gift card from Mina Lobo's Some Dark Romantic blog!  I'd just made an order with the gift card we got from the spare changed at Coinstar and realized I'd forgotten some CDs! Talk about good timing!!!  I got CDs by the Kooks, OneRepublic, OMD and a compilation of Nova Scotia songs.

Last, but certainly not least, I got a goodie box from my dear friend and freshman college roomie, Angie.  I can't wait to hear the musical selections on the CDs.  The Pet Peeves and 'You can agree with me or you can be wrong' pad just crack me up.  She knows me all too well.

The text has me in snots. Because yeah, people need to stop bugging me already.
