WINNER & Manic Monday

Oh my gosh, y'all. I had a fantabulous (but very busy) day! First though, I have to announce the winner of my 400th post giveaway!! =D 

This actually took more effort on my part than I was planning. You see, I just noticed that my blog doesn't have those handy-dandy numbers next to each comment. *sigh* So, I had to copy and paste them into a doc so I could figure out who the winner was. =P After that and hitting up trust random.org, we have a winner!!!!

So who is lucky number 37? Let's see...

JG!!!! Congrats, girlie!!! =D And be sure to email me because I don't think I have your new address. =)


So, now that we've covered that, I can tell you about my awesome day! =)

I started off the day with a nice little Skype chat with my bestie and her little one. Then, I got ready to go to a little sewing party at Miranda's! She's been wanting to learn to sew and Annie and I were more than happy to help. Miranda offered to make us lunch (for 2 girls with deployed hubbies, this is pretty much amazing) and Annie made some amazing cupcakes. I brought myself and my sewing supplies. =P Go me. Haha!! 

Quite possibly the best cupcake I've ever had.
The best part? I got to take one home with me! Score! ;-)

It was so much fun! We were all wearing our comfy clothes (aka yoga pants) and pretty much lazed around. We had lunch, we chatted, we played with Miranda's little boy...and finally we got to sewing! Well, Miranda got to sewing. We took her machine out of the box, showed her how to thread it (which I think is almost the hardest part of sewing) and helped her get started. She chose to embellish a burp cloth with some yummy Amy Butler fabric for her first project. So stinkin' cute! It took her a while, but it turned out really well. =)

Miranda workin' hard! =)

I worked on a little blankie for my littlest nephew today too, but I didn't get very far. Must. work. harder. Seriously. The kid is going to be here next month! Auntie Sarah needs to get to work! =)

After my fabulous sewing party date, I headed over to California Pizza Kitchen for Chantal's birthday dinner! {Happy birthday, Chantal!} It was so much fun. =) All of our/her friends got together for a very yummy dinner. I was instructed by my hubby to eat pizza for him. Since I had such a, um, carb-heavy lunch I wasn't too hungry but I did manage to eat 2.5 pieces of pizza and almost a whole slice of her Reese's+chocolate ice cream cake from Cold Stone. It was soooo good! 

Needless to say, I'm going to have to seriously work out tomorrow. I was so bad today!! Actually, I think I said earlier that I've been "such a fatty today." =P When I finally got home, I found these on my doorstep when I let Jasper out. (I felt bad for him too. I left at like 1100 and got home around 1930... Sorry, puppy!)

Yup, the hubby sent tough boxes! I was super excited until I remembered that he didn't send me the keys that open the locks. *sighs and shakes head* You just gotta love him though. He did say that he was going to send them to me, but who knows if he really did? =P I should probably send him an email and ask, huh? I even got out the keys we have to other locks that look the same to try to open them... We bought a set of three, so I was really hoping these were the other two. No luck. Here's hoping I get them soon!

Oh, and my mom sent me a picture of her. She just started working at an elementary school as a paraprofessional and got her picture taken. Now, when she asked me if I wanted one I was like, "Really, Mom? A yearbook pic? Great." I was pleasantly surprised by this one though! It's a great picture of her, and she rarely poses/likes to be in pictures.

It's great, right? [Insert "you look just like your mom" comments here.] This might be the best picture of her I've seen in a loooong time. If only because she always protests when anyone tries to take a picture of her. =P

So, that was my day. Now I think I'm going to take my sugar-overloaded self to bed.
