Monday random.

- I have no new pictures to share. How sad is that for a photographer?!

- I got silly putty on my favorite jeans this morning. They're ruined now. (yes, it was the silly putty you guys warned me about that The Baby got for his birthday.)

- I got a nasty email/comment the other day about the blogger ornament exchange, saying she never got her partner. I had in my "sent" box the email I'd sent to her telling her who her partner was. RUDE. And seriously? I do this for fun. It's certainly not because I have free time on my hands. I don't love random people telling me how lame I am when I held up my end of the deal. Oh and I visited her blog - it was all about God. Fab. Thank you to all of you who were KIND and gracious about it!

- I have a ridiculous amount of orders sitting here waiting to be mailed. I'm waiting on a supply order of chain. And I've been waiting for days. Have I mentioned that I'm not good at waiting? Because I'm not. So far all my customers have been wonderful! Love them.

- The school called today to have me come pick up my kid, who had just puked all over herself. And the nurse. Poor nurse.

- I hadn't had a shower and didn't have a bra on yet. And leftover makeup from church yesterday morning. Lucky school staff got to see me that way. I sooooo looked like a trendy-hot mom-have it all together-fashionable-jewelry designer chick. I rock.

- I was a really good wife and mom over the weekend. Really good. Finally. That feels good.

- The Baby has a pair of safety scissors and a piece of paper and is making "snow" confetti all over the house. And I'm not stopping him. But it's worth it for the peace and quiet.

- Wonder of my chain is here yet? Because I could really mail those orders now...

- How bad is coffee for me, really? I mean, like if I were to drink 4 or 5 cups a day? Hypothetically, of course.

- Be sure to check out project320 today. Lots of good stuff there.

- I think Wham's "Last Christmas, I gave you my heart" is the worst Christmas song ever. If it could be removed from the earth, that would be fab.

- Tiger, Tiger, Tiger. Seriously? What were you thinking?!

- Off to get lunch and see if my chain is here yet.

Happy Monday to you!

i hope your mean blogger is ready to read comments about how incredibly DUMB she is...and I admire your self control to not post the link. I would've. And then she would get several "comments" left on her blog. That would be awesome. But, you are a better person than I am !


silly putty? try GOO Gone. That crap takes everything off...or

nobody's died from too much coffee...

puking kids? better now than next week? (trying to find the silver lining for you!)

wardrobe malfunction/bad day?
maybe they will refer you to What Not to Wear, for REAL this time.
(did you bring the Baby with his twig/chicken? Seriously. That still makes me laugh!)

and, to top it off, you were a good wife and mom :) Way to overcome such crappy obstacles...

'Tis the season.

If you ever determine that drinking too much coffee kills you...don't let me know! I'd rather continue with my only vice in complete oblivion! ;)

kraftykash said...

in case I never mentioned......my ornament exchange was a GREAT experience! I love my new ornament. :) Coffee rocks my world as well, Im so glad it works wonders for you.
Your blog today, reminds me of my brain on a daily basis. All over the place, yet productive (to me at least) hahaha
Love it!!

The Clines said...

I love your blog and your jewelry designs! I hope your daughter is feeling better quickly.

Cristy said...

Last Christmas I gave you my heart, but the very next day, you gave it away.... Best song EVER. I have no clue what you are talking about. Haha....

Oh, and do I happen to know the rude blogger? You know, beacause I have run into a few rude bloggers out there before. ;)

Heather | Cookie Mondays said...

silly putty totally stretched out and pounded into my carpet this morning.

thank you for all the 320 shoutouts!

Elizabeth @ TexasEbeth said...

I'm glad you hosted the Ornament Exchange along with Fingerprint Fridays. I appreciate all the work it takes in addition to your "real" life. My partner & I loved our ornaments & I'd like to think I made a new bloggy friend. THANK YOU! :)

Trasie Bressler said...

I agree about the Christmas Song........I can not stand that song!!!!!

Rude Blogger - Well just remember people are people where ever you go........Smile and know that you did your part!

Hope everyone stays healthy in your house!

Just in case I forgot to tell you....I love love love my charms, and I still love love love our family pictures!!!

Merry Christmas!

Erica said...

oh beki, i love how you called out your mean blogger!

Country Dreaming said...

Some comments should be kept to themselves. Especially when someone else has taken their precious time to do the activity
that others participate in.

Oh well.

The Perfect Trio said...

I second everything Sara said!

and now I feel bad for jokingly whining to you the other day...you know what I'm talking about...

You're SUPER!

B said...

I for one am GLAD you hosted the ornament exchange. I enjoyed it very much and it appears as if my partner did as well seeing that she left me a lovely comment on my blog.

Hope your day perked up a bit after lunch!

Sarah said...

you made me laugh with every single one...except the mean lady...i completely understand how you feel about that...trust me.:)

Alisha said...

I haven't commented for a while..but I still read your blog everyday and liked this post

Jaime said...

I think silly putty is evil. Fun, but evil. There is some STILL stuck in some carpet in the boy's room from I don't know when anymore. And it was the sparkly kind too...

Coffee is awesome, 'nuf said. :)

Oh, and seriously?! Rude bloggers just need to go away.

But you are awesome and I appreciate how real and honest you always are! :)

LuLu said...

I don't want to know if too much coffee is bad! That would be a very sad day for me... just think the day is almost over and tomorrow i bet your chains will have arrived! Your rude blogger has no Christmas spirit!
You rock!!!
xo,
LuLu

Martha said...

I don't want to know that about coffee either to be honest...but that completely stinks that happened about the comment...because that is just rude for her to attack you with a rude comment/e-mail for such a fun project.
Hope tomorrow is a better day and you receive those chains because you probably won't be able to take a deep breathe until they are sent, at least that's how I am sometimes:)

SugarberrySensations said...

Awww, Beki, I'm so sorry you had a rude, rude person email you. Gosh darn, that is something else if you ask me! I can't imagine the time you must have put into working that all out - out of the goodness of your heart! Please know that we all (except for RUDE one) APPRECIATE everything you did!

I loved this post - even without one of your incredibly beautiful pictures - it was AWESOME!

rentz said...

You make me laugh. And how dare you trash Wham. They are only the best group ever! Heehee. Seriously B98 plays that song ALOT. Sad thing is...I sing along every time. Pitiful!

craftygal86 said...

Hi there!
I did receive the email about the Christmas swap. I sent my partner a message on her blog, but I never heard back from her. Not sure if she still wants to do it or not =/ Should I send my package anyways? I have most of it together.

<3 Ashley

gina said...

Yikes- you have like NOTHING going, what do you DO all day? Eat bon bons- sheesh. :)

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

So sorry about your jeans and rude commenter... I wholeheartedly agree with you about removing Wham's song and sending it to whence it came... and I think Tiger needs to take a long walk off a short pier. So nice that we agree on all these things isn't it?

tara said...

lol, you are cracking me up! Sorry about your jeans, and the puking kid and well the lost chain, or the back ordered chain...that stinks! and Tiger, well...whatever! i hope you get all your orders out and can have some peace and quiet in whatever form it may come in! :) Merry christmas!

~Jenna's Baggs said...

you blog always makes me smile!!

Christina said...

I love imagining your whole house fluffy white, your little man worn out from snipping white paper, and at the end of the day you think,"Yes! Now I know what I can use in my packages instead of those stupid packing peanuts!"
I love some peace and quiet. :)
