Since I am not going to CKU this year, I ordered CKU in a box. I also ordered a box that comes with little clear packages to sort stuff in. I am really happy with this Bling Kit that I got. It has a ton of jewels and rhinestones.
Hope you are having a good week.
Oh, after work today I rolled up the existing rug in the living room and put the new rug down, since Deb was coming over to check it out. After moving the funiture, all I was thinking is I hope she like this because I don't want to switch the rugs back and return one! GOOD NEWS! She loved it!! I can't wait for her to bring the fabric over!

On Saturday we went to Greektown for a late lunch at Pegasus. We love that place. Then we went to the DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts). I thought it was a yawn fest, but my husband decided to become a member, so we can go more often:(
We picked up our new rug for the living room, just have to have Deb (interior designer) come and approve it. It is funny because AC will make suggestions, and I say well, we will just wait for Deb to approve it. Then drapes & paint!
I am in need of a new camera. I want a Canon. I currently have a Kodak and the lag time after taking a picture is insane!! I can't stand it anymore. I also do not think the Kodak takes that good of photos anymore. I am surprised the prices for a decent digital camera have come down a bunch. Great News!
I ran some errands this morning. The driveway was solid ice. I decided to get the newspaper and literally slid 3/4 to the end of the driveway, swinging my arms and looking like a total dork. I finally got turned around and started walking back up to the garage, fell and got wet, and still did not have the paper. I basically slid right by it and at that point said FORGET IT!

Random Sunday Questions
Your first day at a new school?
The first day of school that I remember was when I started college at Oakland Community College. I was so nervous about going back to school. I did it. I graduated.
Your first job interview? Did you get the job?
10.5 years ago when I started working for the company that I still work for is the first real job interview I had. I lived an hour away from the interview and I found my way there and did a good interview. As soon as I got home, I wrote and mailed a thank you for the interview letter. I was told later that the Thank You letter got me the job:)
Your first house or apartment on your own?
My first apartment that I moved into alone was in 1998. I moved into a one bedroom apartment for $525 per month. My husband and I bought our first home in January 2007, much higher monthly payment:(
Your first taste of sushi?
I have never had sushi, but I have had Seared Ahi Tuna and hated it. I can't get passed the raw texture.
Your first paycheck? Did you buy anything special?
I am sure that I bought clothes.

Aman got home tonight around 5 pm and we left to meet friends for dinner. We were home by 8:30 and then he left to play poker with his friends. He will be tired tomorrow, but he likes to go.
Now I remember what has been keeping me busy this week, besides homework…I got these in the mail this week…
I really like both books. I will post more about the books after I read more:)

This is how Tiger and Cupcake have been keeping warm...
They love the fireplace!
On Friday we went out to dinner and then stayed home the rest of the evening. On Saturday AC was busy and I made cards with Anita. Then we went to see the Dorner’s on Saturday night. AC had to start work tomorrow morning early, so he had to leave today. I have homework to finish, but I have decided to watch the Grammy's instead. Amy Winehouse has been nominated for 6 and won the first 2 already. She is like the Brittney of the UK, except I like Amy's music. She was unable to get a visa for the Grammy's so she is performing live via satellite from London. I am looking forward to that. This actually let her stay in rehab longer, so not really a bad thing. Brothers and Sisters is also new tonight!

On my way home from work I stopped to fill my 2.5 gal gas can so I could use the snow blower. First, I could not get the can open to even put the gas in. I went into the gas station and a nice man in there helped me. I filled and left. After a few moments I looked down to see gas coming out of the little vent hole and the cover was not on tight, so it was splashing out of there also. Great smell! I got home and cleaned the mat, thankfully it was a rubber mat. I then decided to check the oil and put the gas in. I specifically remember the manual saying to be careful not to spill the gas...However, that is harder than it looks. Enough said.
I decided to re-read the manual because it occurred to me that I didn't now how to turn the snow blower off. Did a mention that I have never done this before? All ready to snow blow. Got it started and took off. I can not understand why is has 6 speed levels! I could handle 2, but would never try above that. It was snowing hard, so the neighbors really couldn't tell how crooked the paths were or the nice lawn job I gave us. In my mind the snow blower would scrape all the way to the concrete, but only in some spots, because of the ice. Overall, I need practice :)
I work up at 4am and decided to look outside to see how much snow we got, and while looking outside I noticed my neighbor, the one with the amazing yard in the summer, out shoveling!! He is crazy! I couldn't believe it. When I get home today I plan on trying the snow blowing again.
I won the cutest cards ever! My blogging friend Toni sent these to me. She is the best card maker, be sure to check her out.
Here are 2 of the cards she sent...
