Erin and John will be home this summer, and I can't wait. I love you guys!!
Well, I lied. I keep remembering other AWESOME books that I read last year. Case in point: The Time Traveler's Wife. This is a wonderful book, and you really should find the time to read it if at all possible. What made me remember this book? Well, it appears that a movie version starring Eric Bana (droooooool...) will be coming soon to a theater near you. For more on this, see http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0452694/ .
As a general rule (with the exception of To Kill a Mockingbird), movies are never equal to or better than their literary counterparts. So, I urge you to read the book first. Then, go out and enjoy the movie when it's released because, after all, Eric Bana is HOT!

In honor of Valentine's Day, I would like to introduce you to two of my imaginary boyfriends. What makes them worthy of such a crafty lass, you ask? Well, these fellows may be good looking, but they relish opportunities to be completely silly and even ugly! My dear friend Maria can attest to the fact that a boring photo of a nice smile is only ok. The interesting stuff happens when you try to capture the most disgusting face possible. When the two of us are together, much of our time is spent taking pictures of our facial gymnastics and then laughing hysterically at the images that result! For more on this topic, skip to the end.
Without further ado, meet beau #1, Bill Hader:
Pretty cute, eh? Well, check out the following photos in which he REALLY shines!
Now, that's my kind of fella. I must say, though, that his impersonation of Peter O'Toole killed me! I didn't find a photo of that one, unfortunately!
Now for boyfriend #2, Paul Rudd:
Yep, those are my hot honeys.

Weekends are the perfect opportunity to appreciate what's happening in my garden. All the exciting stuff is best appreciated in the light of day, when I'm usually at work!
I received a lovely bird house from my coworker Rosie in our Secret Santa gift exchange, and I hung it up last weekend. I finally caught a cute little birdie eating some breakfast yesterday morning! Yay!
More bulbs are in bloom now, too! The yellow and white narcissus below is so pretty!

I wanted to share a project I started this week. I have so many friends with kiddos right now, and it inspired me to make these cute little "clippies." When I was a wee girl, my mom made me a bunch of little clips with eyelet fabric, ribbon, and buttons. I absolutely loved my collection, and I wish I still had it for sentimental value.
These clippies are tiny and make fun little hair clips or mini-brooches. Of course, I couldn't resist making one with a bunny since Easter will be here soon. I will be adding them to my Etsy shop over time.
Have a great weekend!

I would like to thank Penelope the Cat for awarding me this most prestigious award. I realize there are many fantastic, talented bloggers out there. It is truly an honor to be recognized by such a distinguished feline. Thanks, Penelope. You rule.

Actually, he's not too good at scaring squirrels. They have learned to sit on the fence and taunt him by twitching their tails.
At least he's entertained while I'm away at work...
