spring is here!

finally! obligatory spring related list starts here;

* riding around with the windows down to spoon, rogue wave, say anything and rilo kiley as well as summer jams old and new. i'm going to start making new mixes this coming week, who wants to trade? for reals trade. i'm already starting random themed mixes as we speak, hehe. i tried pandora since everyone is always talking about it, and i have to say i'm not that into it. i like my music to be eclectic, i don't want to listen to a bunch of songs that all sound the same. i wish it would let you type in your top 10 bands and then stream the music based on that, rather than just one band or song. oh well, it is pretty good in short spurts at least.

* spring means new beginnings right? well, say goodbye to my old job and hello to my brand new job at scraptasia! that's right, i'm out of here. dawn has been so absolutly awesome to teach for, talk to and collaborate with that i can't wait to start working for her too!

* i cleaned out soooooo much stuff at the scrapbook garage sale that it's crazy. barely any came back to the house and i'm probs just going to keep it in a container and add to it along the way for the next garage sale. i already started spending my cushy credit yesterday. it's so fun to let myself buy things that i've been wanting but didn't want to spend the money on, but with the credit it's almost like found money, hehe. i picked up this alphabet i've been wanting, one of these 17 x 23 mats for my scrap table, some more of this and lots of other stuff like fontwerks labels, thickers, journaling stamps and other fun goodies.

* i've been scrapping like crazy lately; circle journals, class samples, store layouts, stuff for a guest dt spot, an album a friend is paying me to do and i had forgotten how much i love to do this! it seems crazy, but i just wasn't making anything and now that i am it's like a fresh breeze and i just want to do it all the time! i'm scrapping with nicole tommorow and with my sassy scrapper ladies friday night and at work inbetween and i wouldn't have it any other way.

* i've been going a little crazy with the spring clothes shopping lately too. marykate and i went shopping sunday and i did some more damage on my way home from mlpa yesterday too. a cute dress, adorable flats, a couple tees, a really cute new bag and some easy-breezy-throw-'em-on-and-go tops.

* i also nabbed the most adorable reusable shopping bags at target. i already had gotten the cute grocery type bag a couple months ago, but now they have a bigger, clothing shopping type bag that folds and snaps up and really cute little tote type bags that fold up and then zipper around to about 3 x 6. they are perfect for just keeping in my purse for whenever and they happen to safely fit 12 x 12 paper without bending anything! how rad is that?

* loving weeds on netflix instant play. instant play on my laptop has gotten me through many days here. i've also watched all of the office, 30 rock and the first season of dexter. obviously i am in love with jim, want to be bff's with liz lemon and have started reading the dexter books.

* i am also on the hunt for cheap, but not horrible, cross trainer sneakers and comfy workout pants and the gym membership comes next week. i can't wait. i like that i'm at the point where i'm looking forward to excercising. i have kind of fallen off the eating well bandwagon, but that comes back next week too. it all changes.


so yup, new music, new scrappies, new job, new clothes and new workout plan. sounds pretty spring-y to me.
