Some Odd Girl and Design Dollies!

I’m so freakin happy its Friday! Having a day off is SO nice! I have tomorrow off too but I’m not sure what I’m going to do. I need to go shopping but its all weird. Still thinkin on that. Have I mentioned WHY I need to go shopping? Well the date is June 18th and its nice and hot here in Michigan and at the end of the fall last year we packed up the out of season clothes to make some closet room (since its a tiny thing) and DH put my clothes into our storage unit…….. fast forward to the summer and HE CAN’T FIND MY CLOTHES! PFFFFFT! I’ve bought some tees but I have one stupid pair of shorts, no swimmie suit and the black shrug I got to wear with my tank tops that I love to pieces is GONE! I’ve had him look multiple times and since I can’t even find my shoes in the morning I didn’t bother but its no where to be found. So I could use at least a new shrug and some crop pants. PISSED.

Not to mention that we have booked to go to CHA Chicago this year and I really now have nada to wear. But whatever…… if anyone else is going to CHA hit me up! I’m going with DH and the kidletts (we are going to hit up family fun stuff too while in chi-town) but I’ve signed up to go to the crop and I’ll be by myself. Not a big deal b/c I ALWAYS crop alone but it would be nice to chat it up with people 🙂

We are staying at the Embassy which is right across the street from the Convention Center. This hotel is awesome! They have a fab breakfast buffet with an Omlette Bar! So yummy! AND in the evening a Manager’s Reception (I think that’s what its called) where they serve free cocktails 🙂 I won’t be able to take full advantage of it with the kids in tow but still. How do I know this hotel is awesome? WELL we stayed at this same hotel when we went to the Comi-con waaaaay back in 2004. That convention was in the same place so its like a home away from home. Its also a lil reminisent b/c that was the same trip I got preggers with me DD at. No chance of that now but still.

Ok……….. time for some crafty fun! I’ve got two things to show ya. ONE is from Design Dollies and the other is my Some Odd Girl Card. Both had challenges come down yesterday 🙂

Next, Some Odd Girl threw down our 4th Stash Challenge and it was to make your project SHIMMER! We want to see BLING! But not with just rhinestones and pearls but try out some embossing powder or some foil or whatever else you’ve got on hand! I used Merman Kody

    Enjoy the time – but before that, give hubs a clip around the ear for misplacing your clothes…I meam: HELLOOOOOOHOOOOO?!??!!! Does he not know how sacred clothes are?
    At least you can go shopping now blaming it all on him 🙂
