Playing Catch-Up

Hi, y'all! It's been crazy around here lately, and I'm having a heck of a time keeping up with the blog. Last weekend, after my wonderful visit with Dawn, I came straight to my computer to tell you all about it, and the blasted thing froze up on me - right in the middle of my post! After hubby got it running again, he sorta took it over. His laptop is also on the fritz, and we're having to take turns using mine.

I can't believe it's already been a week since Dawn and I MIRLed. I picked her up from her sister-in-law's house and got to meet some of her family. Dawn greeted me with a hug, then we headed out to find a nice spot to take pictures. We decided on the Botanical Garden, thinking it would be in full bloom, but the cold snap had taken it's toll. We had a great time anyway, talking non-stop for the next two and a half hours and taking a few pictures before we had to part ways. She is as lovely in person as she seems on her blog, and I'm thrilled to the bone that I got to meet her. I still haven't had a chance to get my film developed, but I will be posting pics as soon as I can.

In other news, at hubby's insistence, I opened an online gift store, and have been trying to get that going. I've got a lot to learn, and I'm grateful for his guidance and expertise. Dear Melanie of This Ain't New York has already linked to my shop and sent me lots of visitors. Thank you Melanie!

I will eventually open another store geared more toward humor. Here's one of the designs I have in mind for the geek section. I'd like to know what you think!

(Should I spell out "protractor"? Hubster thought it would be too obscure if I did, but I'm not sure.)

I think I would keep it as it is. To spell out protractor might take away it's reference to the song.

And this is for geeks, so you know a geek will 'get it'. =)

Well, I must be a geek. Cause I got the joke :)

Dawn said...

I was gonna say the same thing - if it's geeks that you want to target, they'll get it!! Cute!

Well, my first thought was, why is there a picture of an arc drawing thingy when it's referring to a piece of farm machinery? Does that mean I'm not a geek? Just for the record, I do get it now but I didn't right off the bat. LOL

Honestly, any store geared toward humor that you open will be a hit, especially if everything is a Brenda original. You have the craziest and quickest sense of humor I've come across, ever.

Soon as you open that store, let me know. I'd love to mention it over at my place.

I'm really glad you and Dawn got to meet each other. I know for sure I'll meet her, probably early next year, when Aaron joins the graduate program she helps run at CSU. I'm looking forward to meeting her and hopefully Kristen, too and of course, I'm really, really looking forward to eventually meeting YOU! xoxoxo

Hi, I read your blog and wanted you to know I tagged you for a "random 7" meme.

Melanie said...

A geek will get it. I got it. :>)

I'd like to know how the online store thing works. Something I have thought of.

Do you mind if I post a button for you in my sidebar in addition to the post? If so, just let me know what button.

Hubster is right... leave it as is. This geek got it and so will others.

I got it right away! Love it and I want one for Memorial Day for husband's 41st birthday. He is very sober and I would love to see him in this t-shirt! Crack up for sure!

I like it better your way - just right!
