.this week.

It’s been “just another week” full of randomness…

Melissa bought this purple and black fleece and gold blanket binding to make a football blanket. I agreed to sew it for her – which seemed easier than it actually was. I’d never sewn with the satin baby blanket binding before…and let’s just say, I probably will never use it again. YUCK!

So, the blanket didn’t turn out as nice as I would’ve liked it, but Melissa is trying to convince me that it’s fine!

She traced these footballs onto the fleece and then I sewed over the trace lines.

Hopefully it will keep her warm and cozy at the games!

At cheer practice the past few days, we’ve been talking about Homecoming costumes. I brought my loot of 80s accessories today and Sommer tried on every single one of them. Lookin’ mighty fine! :)

I cringed inside when I had to explain to them who “I Love Lucy” was and Violet from Saved by the Bell. Really?! Then, to get asked, “Why do you still watch those old shows?” I don’t regularly watch them now – but that’s what I grew up with!  These girls have been on a roll this week. Earlier one of them asked me if Arizona was by Mexico or Washington DC. Then, when she saw a map and asked all the other girls if they knew Washington DC was “all the way across the world?!” O.M.G.

Today, Facebook, Twitter, MSN, and every other form of media was blowing up with news of Steve Jobs’ passing and tributes to him. The world lost a really great mind yesterday. He changed our world in the form of technology and media. Every time I picked up my iPhone today, I thought about the man that urged us to “Think Different.” Such a huge loss to our world.


This is a screen shot from my Twitter feed today…

I’ve been looking forward to tomorrow for a few weeks now…
