Thing One: I watched a movie last night! (What else is new, Emma?) :-D A chick-flick; a rom-com -- You've Got Mail. I've been intrigued for a while by Kara's mentions of it on her blog, and I was excited to finally see it! I liked it a lot -- it was cozy, funny and it made me smile. It also reaaaally made me want to own my own bookstore someday. :-)
Thing Two: Any of y'all hear of the makeup company Cowgirl Dirt? They're a family-owned natural makeup company based out of the Texas hill country, and let me tell you folks -- I have a new favorite company. How can you resist products with names like 'Ponderosa blush' and 'Wheatfield eye shadow' and 'Mud-slinger eye pencil'? I plan to be a loyal customer of these guys in the future.
Thing Three: I had the most lovely surprise this afternoon! Guess what I found in my mailbox today? An envelope addressed to me -- from my dear friend Miss Meg March!!! And inside, a note and a beautiful handmade bookmark with my name on it (literally)! I was delighted! Thank you so much, Miss Meg! :-)
Thing Four: Another special delivery in the mail today: the Little Women piano book Sadie and I ordered last week!!!! *major squealing* Sadie's playing it right now as I type this. :-) Oh my goodness, I LOVE this musical so much. So much beauty. Gaaahhhh. I may have a lack of desire to do anything else but play these songs for the next....oh, week or so.
Thing Five: Over at the Inspired by Life and Fiction blog (which is awesome, if you didn't know that already), Becky Wade has written a post of 4 Steps for Beginning Writers that I happen to think is pretty awesome. If you're an aspiring writer, go read it!
And this doesn't really count as one of the five things, but I thought some of you might like to know that I now possess a ball cap with the Ford logo on it.
Is that cool or what?!?
Happy Friday, everyone! I'm off to do laundry now. :-)
