Going Under the Knife...

My cataract surgery went off without a hitch...
I was quite nervous to think about
 someone cutting into my eye,
but they gave me some
"keep calm and carry on" 
so I was OK.
It was over before I knew it...

I'm bringing sexy back....

Treasure Hunting...

I found this 
vintage blow mold pumpkin
at the thrift store.
It even had the cord
still with it
it worked!!!!

What made my find even better was this...

Happy Halloween to me....

Missoni Madness...

My sister Spring called me last night and said
"OK...this awesome Italian line is coming to Target tomorrow
and you HAVE to be at your Target right when it opens."
(because she was going to be at hers and wanted to divide and conquer)

I didn't get to Target until 10:45
this is what I walked out with...

One glass...
One headband...

The shelves and racks
were almost completely empty. 
Crazy shoppin' women,
 it was insane...
I heard that
and then the website 
within 20 minutes!
Missoni Madness...literally!
I did not accompany Spring to 5 other Target stores that day...
(as she was feverish with the madness)

Making turning 40 a little sweeter...

My sister Spring 
gave me one of the most 
fabulous birthday presents
 that I've ever ever received
in all my 40 (gasp) years...

 40 individually wrapped gifts...
my favorite treats
vintage bits and bobs
a myriad of sundries
ribbons and fabric
stationary and cupcake liners
and on and on and on...
it is

I'm officially old...

I had an eye appointment today.
I was WAAAY past due for new contacts.
I had been wearing my "2 week" contacts for about "2 months."
I know, I know....
I told the optometrist
that I wasn't seeing so clear lately. 
He took one look in my eyes
and said...
"well I'll tell you why you can't see, you have cataracts"
Only really old people get cataracts right?
My 85 year old Grandma had cataract surgery right?
I'm in my thirties!!!
(for 2 more days)
you know when "they" say something like
1 in 5000 may experience this or that
I'm the 1
Lucky ducky!
And they're so bad that he told me 
 I shouldn't drive
I could be a danger to others on the road!

I'm getting surgery in a few weeks
I officially feel old
(and I'm still in my thirties...for 2 more days)

Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat...

Last night we took the girls to see
 my crazy talented niece Chloe
in Joseph.

It was up at The Hale Center Theatre
and it was an amazing show!!!
I saw it years ago in SLC
 when Donny Osmonds' son was Joseph 
and this cast was even better.

Chloe and all her little adoring cousins

Sib had a little crush on Pharaoh aka Elvis...
she really wanted to take a picture with him

Good times with the original Winebrenner clan...

Rapunzel Rapunzel let down your hair...

begged me 
to straighten her hair...

Holy Cow!
This is seriously
verging on the side of
sheer ridiculousness. 
The need for a trim has passed her by eons ago...
