The Ants Go Marching Two by Two

Ants invaded overnight! Sadly they appear to have come in from the cold into the base of my stairs in my apartment. Even sadder, I didn't notice the worst of it until I got to school: they invaded my purse bc I had a box of MilkDuds in it! Darn it. Since this is my favorite purse so far, I fought the urge to toss it all, and I dumped it and cleaned out all the ants...I hope I got all of them. Major downside is now my skin is crawling! Yuck.

Last night was really great. I had planned on going over to LaRae's to get some hairbows to show someone at work today and then heading home to go read on my balcony until the bugs got me. Instead, Randy was working late, so LaRae and I went to Costco to look for a chair for my balcony. Then, he was still not coming home, so we went to the mall for dinner at Rollerz (SOOOO GOOD!) and to let Katelyn look at the fish and play in the playplace. It was just really nice and relaxing to have fun with LaRae and not worry about the bows. Lately all I've been doing is going to her house and working on bows. It's nice to have a break...we've finally got our inventory built up and stuff ready for sales. Next sale in 2 or 3 weeks!

Tonight is secret sister revealing. My secret sister was Beri, and she gave me a ton of great stuff! She had to reveal early bc she won't be there tonight. Anyways, final gift was a really cute apron for when I'm cake decorating. Her gifts were really thoughtful and generous. I can't wait to reveal to mine. While I had a hard time shopping for her, I think I've gotten her some cute stuff. We'll see how she liked it all!

Let's see, what else has been going on? LaRae and I had our first bow sale on Saturday. It went ok. If you want the whole story ask us, but in short: Texas gale force winds and burning hot sun is not a fun combination! We got a lot of positive feedback on our bows though. Let's just hope that feedback turns into profit soon!

I better go now. Love to you all!

  1. Okay, that's sort of helpful, but what I was getting at is over on the right hand side of your blog you have a list of links. Where did that come from? BTW, sorry about the ants. Insects suck!
