Loving: When my husband paints. He's working on a painting of our son and his favorite toys for a Painting class. The concept is so adorable and I love watching this painting come together. My husband & I usually bounce ideas off each other and it really means so much when he uses something I suggested.
Thinking About: The final design of this blog. Who knew commissioning someone to design my blog would be so much work - the thought process has been insane! But I'm actually happy with the way it's coming along and can't wait till it's done and I can finally show it off!
Anticipating: The birth of our baby! He's due on April 14th and I can't wait to hold him, smell him, kiss him... I'm getting so excited!
Listening To: J. Cole / Missy Elliott - Nobody's Perfect I've really taken a liking to J. Cole - This is probably the newest music I've got into in a while, it's depressing what my kids have to listen to these days.
Eating: I made spaghetti with a side of peas for dinner. This became a favorite of mine when I was in High School. I got about $20 a week allowance when I was a teenager (which was a lot in the 90s), most of my friends got nothing. I can remember pooling all our money, buying groceries and cooking dinner at different friends' houses - Spaghetti & peas was cheap, could feed a bunch of us and yummy.
Wishing: I could make up my mind on what I want to buy. On the fence about getting a new DSLR body, film camera or a few lenses. My husband gave me the heads up to buy "whatever I wanted" a couple months ago and I still can't make up my mind. Funny cause he's the Gemini! Not that I haven't been looking... I have carts of stuff on etsy and Amazon and watch lists on eBay. Maybe subconsciously waiting for Mercury Retrograde to pass... Hurry up April 3rd!

This was the only thing I passed on. I had no idea a bunch of friends would want it.
This piece was .95 - So happy I decided to pick it up!
This original painting was .95 - Thinking about using it in a swap.
Another .95 piece - Seen these at Necromance from $26-50!
Another .95 piece - Vintage and never opened! Thinking about sending it out for a swap.
4 Clutches for $1.95 each - I went back a week later and all clutches were $4.95 and up!
I got this for a swap, sadly it didn't survive the mail system. Wish I just kept it instead!

Coins from Mexico & The Philippines- He's been learning about coins & Presidents at school and has one of each coin from the US and a couple from Japan. Since he is part Mexican and Filipino, we knew that these coins would be special and important for him to have. Postcard from Hawaii- He's a huge Toy Story fan. He has been on a kick where he's always asking to visit Hawaii and finally saw Toy Story Hawaiian Vacation. We're thinking of getting the postcard and having Daddy sign it as Woody & Buzz. Chicago Bulls buttons- He loves the Bulls and this would look so cute on one of his hoodies. Plastic Ladybug- He came home from school with a plastic frog that he named Mr. Toy Frog and insists that the frog needs a girlfriend. Statue of Liberty Lego Minifig- Another subject that has come up in school and he loves Lego.
- Four Leaf Clover - He's been trying to look for one in our yard but no success!
