I started off the day by getting the girls and myself ready and making myself a smoothie (they ate honey-nut Cheerios). I added strawberries instead of peanut butter and cinnamon and it was so yum!
Dropped them off, got my stuff together at work and Laura and I made our way to our event: the crafty classes. We learned to make little dolls and baby toys today. I didn’t get to work on mine, but I brought my materials with me.
I love that we get to put these classes together and then learn things along with the ladies ^_^. It went by so fast that by the time I knew it, it was time to pick up Emmos.
Ate some leftovers here at home and the mailman dropped off my super-early birthday present from Mom and my love ^_^.
Emmos and I oohed and ahhed over them, did her homework and then I went back to work. There’s actually a story behind those Party Yum Yums. The original auction that I was stalking went for triple what I wanted to pay. The seller and I had already been messaging back and forth about non-related things, but when I didn’t even bother bidding on that auction ’cause it was so ridiculously expensive, the seller messaged me a day later to ask which Yum Yums I wanted and what I wanted to pay. I gave her the amount of the “birthday money” I’d been allotted and voila! They were mine!! That was so awesome of her ^_^.
The afternoon went by fast since we had a quick photo session and then I delivered some plaques and was left with 30 minutes back at the office. Love these types of fast days!
Got out of work, went to banks while I spoke to Eenan on the phone, and then decided to stop by some thrift shops on the way home. No luck at the first 2 but was pretty happy with my haul from Goodwill :).
A 25th Anniversary Swarovski Crystal Care Bear (I have this one MIB, but I *had* to get it ’cause I’ve never actually held one in my hands), a new with tags Tenderheart Bear, a litter of vintage Pound Puppies and Pound Purries and a 1976 Dakin owl. *squee*
So all-in-all, it was a pretty darn good day for vintage toys!! Yay!
Then my love got home and we decided on IHOP instead of cooking, so double yay!
Spoke to Jaylen briefly, as that one hardly ever makes conversation. It’s very rare. He’s usually distracted by a video game he’s playing. Eenan on the other hand, can stay on the phone with me for an hour. I hope Jaylen eventually opens up =\.
We get to IHOP and all I want to do is shove wheat pancakes in my mouth, but I opted for grilled chicken and broccoli *sigh*. The girls had their favorite: mac-n-cheese.
We got home and spent a good hour on our electronics and then the girls brushed their teeth and got into bed. Jorge is putting a load of laundry to wash and then we’re watching American Idol. Couldn’t think of a better way to end a day ^_^.
