Fun Day

Last night was great fun- we had Robin, Mark, Hannah, and Lincoln over for a night of dinner and Catan. (As in "Settlers of-") I think we should make it a more regular event, although I fear monopolizing the hosting card since we don't have a lot of options where Bella is concerned. Anyone up for a more regular event of gaming?
Today has been a pretty fun day! I went to do fun errands-a favorite rarity. I am making some journals for 3 of my nieces on commission for my mother-in-law, so buying supplies for them has been a great vacation from my scrap supply fast. (I have not bought any scrap supplies for myself this month. It's been a long month so far.) So I got a few last supplies for them before I start to create them tonight. I also picked up my new camera!!!

I am so excited. Michelle and I have been researching new digital cameras for a little while, and I finally settled on this one. I can't believe it, I am so excited! (Sadly the only way we afforded it was from the earnest money we received back from our failed condo deal-oh well!)It has 5 megapixels and 12x optical zoom! (12x!) I'm sure there will be a barrage of new pictures everyday now that I have access to a good camera. (Okay, there may not be an actual 'barrage' until we have high-speed internet and it doesn't take 20 minutes to load 1 picture!)More to come...
Also exciting: At least one person received a package from me today- Jill! I don't know whether the other one has yet, so I can't spoil it with a picture, but here's what Jill got today. I love making/giving something to someone when you know (or least hope) they will love it! Very exciting.
The only downer: now Timm is sick. I think this thoroughly debunks the myth that there is no such thing as a 24-hour flu. First of all, how would I get food poisoning from oatmeal-made with water, no less? Second of all, how would the whole family get sick from my oatmeal-food-poisoning? Not possible if you ask me. Sounds like an 18-hours-or-less flu. Guests of last night: I sincerely hope none of you are sick or will be in the near future. Please forgive us, but also remember: you were warned ;)
Stay tuned for posts of my latest scrap organization!

I sure do love my new list notebook, thanks again! I'm psyched about your new camera and will be anticipating more good photos from your life. I want one too.

Catan was so much fun. Linc and I are looking at possibly buying it but wanted to see about a more regular game night as well so it doesn't just sit in our closet. The camera looks awesome, can't wait to see the pics from it. Sorry Timm is sick. Hope this ends it for your house for this year and getting sick. See ya later today!

I love playing Settlers. I was introduced to it by my sister in-law...who was introduced to it by her sister who just so happens to be a student at BYU. Which makes me wonder if its a popular Mormon thing to do? I'm out of that loop now that I'm back in Ohio... :)
Your camera looks nice. I wouldn't mind having a new one. Did you research consumer reports? How did you end up deciding to buy the one you did?

Hannah, if you're looking into buying Catan you might want to look on ebay. There are tons of new game sellers and it's always cheaper than the stores. Playing with the expansion pack is awesome. We've play the cities and knights version and have really liked it.

I am most excited about my list book! Now I can indulge my list fetish with wild abandon... I hope Timm is feeling better and can't wait to see the pics you take with your new camera.

p.s. I couldn't see this post until this morning. weird.

Robin said...

I would love to do a more regular game night. Settlers was awesome! Even though my little settlements were cut off from the world, but whatever. ;) And we could prolly do something this Saturday after I am done with work (I am trying to get off early anyways to go to a bridal shower at 3 - which might make me available a little earlier...) after 5:15.

And glad to hear that Timm is no longer sick :( I am keeping my fingers crossed it doesn't get me or Mark. But, it was worth taking the risk ;)

I received my birthday package from you on Tuesday and I LOVE it! I emailed you before I read this. You make the best books! Thanks, again.

I've heard so much about that game--yet another thing I feel "out-of-the loop" on.

Hope everyone is feeling better by now.
