Does anyone in my blog-o-sphere understand what's going on in the stock market? I know that it is down. I am assuming that most likely the $15 a paycheck (haha- I am obviously more concerned about rent than retirement!) I put in my 401K is probably all gone now. Hmmm, I know that at one time I understood the whole Bull/Bear Market and recession thing, but it has since left my list of things I care to think about. In fact, since moving to Los Angeles, I pretty much steer clear of most news items and try to just focus on the good happenings of those around me. Might be a tad naive way to live life, but it is how I survive in the city of shootings and knifings and the world of bombings and terrorists.

A Dog backpack for Mason
A Skunk backpack for Stella
A bib and burp cloth for my upcoming nephew-
Caleb drew the bird shape based on the fabric pattern, I love it when we "collaborate"
For Mom and Dad- The very rich chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting and chocolate peanut butter glaze... yum!... that I made with my new mixer. Smitten Kitchen for the original recipe and much better pictures of the cake (I went a little glaze happy) Thanks! I love it!
On Tuesday, this band's CD was released into stores (release party next Wednesday night- invite poster on sidebar to left) and they were interviewed for this magazine and had this picture as the pull out poster in the magazine. It is a recreation of an old Who Album cover. To quote Kenley from Project Runway- I think they "pretty much nailed it" Don't you think?
It was WICKEDLY WONDERFUL! I can't believe that I went, what- 3 years! without realizing where the storyline would go. I was shocked the entire first act... She's bad!? She's good!?! Woah! And then SURPRISED the entire 2nd act as everything fell into place. I would elbow Caleb and whisper- wow, that's ____! and he'd look at me like he knew it all along. And I loved that he loved it too! I have to admit, I got a little teary at the end during the ovation. It makes me miss theater just a little.
One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season, is watching Christmas videos. I get a new Christmas movie every year as tradition (one I made up for myself a few years ago! haha- the joys of adulthood- starting your own traditions!). We have so many, and the original Grinch is one that I watch several times every year.
