Ever get "hooked" on a song?

Where you just loop it?
And play it 200 times in a row while you get ready for work?
Screaming Singing at the top of your lungs?
No?
Me either.

But if I did... this would be it.

Wishing-Well Wednesday

{{Can someone loan me 5 pennys... it's not in the budget this week}}

1. I wish it was summer. Or even that the weather would act more like April. please.
2. I wish sleeping with the tv on an infomercial for Rosetta Stone would help me learn another language.
3. I wish there was a magic pill that would give you motivation. (crack is not a pill people, gosh)
4. I wish I could figure out what I want for my birthday... I'm thinking the DROID. Anyone have one?
5. I wish my dog smelled like a freshly squeezed lemon. Who came up with funky-dog-smell anyway.

Shadow Box Love...


Look what I made...

My inspiration...


Modern Hot Pink Hearts
{via Artisteboheme on etsy.com}

How I did it...
{because you can too!}


You need a shadow box
I got mine at Michaels with coupons, it was about $8.

You also need a shape punch.
This one is Martha Stewart.
 My Birthday is on St. Patricks Day... {note to you}



Mark your paper.
See those little pencil marks above the ruler?
That is where the shamrocks will go.
It looks best if they are evenly spaced.
Just measure & divide.



Cut out your desired shape with the punch.
I used different colors of scrapbook paper.
One color would look nice too.



Bend the edges up a little to give each clover demention.
I used glue dots to adheare them to each pencil mark.



Then just slip your paper inside the shadow box.
Ta-da!

Muffin-Top Monday!

Am I the only person out there that routinely eats the same things...

same breakfast
{wheat english muffin with peanut butter & fruit}
same snacks
{carrots, yogurt, cottage cheese}

same lunch
{cucumber salad with tomatoes, black olives, feta cheese and mushrooms}
{via: my lunch}

If/when I switch it up... I switch it all up. I'll do oatmeal for breakfast, followed by apples for snack, and veggie burger on thin bun for lunch. I just like what I like. Drives the hubs batty.
But, we do switch it up for dinner.

It's only been 3 days since I started "operation no beer gut" but, I feel good. Kinda cranky. But who dosen't get up on the wrong side of the bed for 3 days straight every once in a while.
AND, I'm -.8lbs. Whoot!
