brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr -it was 8* wen we walked to get coffee a couple blocks away. - - i have a cold and it's a good day for it. - - i am obsessed with Lost; i am on the season 4 finale.... i was watching all the episodes with cameron, but when i woke up at 4 this morning and couldnt go back to sleep, i got like 5 episodes ahead of him... - it sucks when yu go to work at 3am, and thn come home and fall asleep at 6pm...then wake up at 4am naturally... boo....
at work today it was crazy, and i was calm, which was great. until... dr bolton (no relation to michael, although they look like the could be). he is RUDE. he called me arrogant, and said i did not have the capacity to understand how to manage a patient. i say to him "NI"(monty python). take your bad day out on someone else poopface.
yes everyone that i talk to (besides sus) is totally grossed out beyond belief, and almost every person has som story to try and deter me from doing it... little do they know, wipe by wipe i am saving their earth too.
so here i how i made some cute napkins and toilet paper.
1. buy cute 100% cotton cloth for napkins
100% cloth (i used flannel) for toilet paper
2. iron said fabric
3. cut said fabric into whatever size you want for napkins
-i just got 1/3yard for each print of fabric, then
cut that into 3 pieces... big enough for us.
-for the tp, i ct them into 6x6in squares (that's what google said)
tp - - 4. sew a border around the tp, or it will really ravel away... i tried my hand at all the different stitches my machine can do, and it was fun to see them :) i used brown thread. - you can sew 2 tp's together inside out then flip them and sew around the edges again to make a border and have no raveling at all, but i was too anxious to get them done.
see the borders below
with the napkins, i actually hemmed them,
they are too cute to look ravely.
we use cloth napkins all the time, but i had a giftcard to the fancy tiger
and it has such cute fabric, i couldnt resist making napkins!!!
1. i just found out just now i. love. jasmine. tea. sedating and relaxing qualities in it.... 2. steepandcheap.com & chainlove.com they will be addictions, and it's bad. just check them out. 3. evangeline = good news in Greek don't be a-stealing it people. i am saving that name. 4. blog stalking people can lead to some old friends (shout out to jake and christy) -was blog stalking them from Lo's blog, and realized i knew Jake! 5. i made cam a homemade hot pocket! hopefully it will freeze and he can heat it up tomorrow, but i lost the real hot pocket heater upper thingys, and so i dont know what he's gonna do. 6. homemade pizza is now my specialty. 7. i almost bit it while riding my bike to yoga today (bike & snow = not always the best combo) 8. i have been to yoga for 3 times in a row, and my goal is to go every tues and thursday that i my work schedule can allow... i really like this teacher and her name is lauren. i think she thinks i am a student (going to DU for classes, b/c i get a crazy cheap disocunt since cam is a student there), but oh well. and some guy's shoulder popped out of socket in class today and i did NOT say anything about being a nurse. A: i was in crow position for 12 seconds B: he wasnt gonna die. 9. addicted to Lost. i re-watched seasons 1&2, and am starting 3&4 and can hopefully watch them all before the 21st, doubtful, but i will try. 10. i don't want to go to work tomorrow, but i am ready for it, after 5 days off. 11. i made some baby presents today! 12. i highly reccommend: The Walmart Effect, and I am sending it to my mother in law! 13. okay, must eat pizza and watch Lost and wait for cam to get home.

taken from the kitchen, looking into backyard
new organizer thingy!
i copied Odette...
i put gift bags, paper, and tissue in it!
this was the best use of a target gift card EVER!
my closet is like miniature... well
just really long and narrow, with no light source...
so i moved 3/4 of the clothes from the cloest into the
basement into THIS!
seriously, i had forgotten about a lot of my clothes,
b/c I couldn't see them.
I seriously have to use a flashlight to see my clothes in the closet... no lie.
another giftcard purchase... the lazy susan white thing.
from michaels.. thanks cannons!
also from michaels giftcard... the white hanging shelf!
today is a day to myself.
i am just lounging!
catching up on emails, blogs, pictures, laundry.
i will probably do some crafts later :)
_ on a side note: i have been so bad about the blog b/c our main computer crashed, and it hasnt really been working all of dec/jan... so we finally decided to use loan money and get a new one. Since cam has to take his to class, we rarely have a computer at home. He was nice to leave it for me today though! Other wise i was going to trek to the library :). Anyways, this new computer has "face recognition" instead of a password i am pretty sre it just uses the camera to look at my face! cool huh???
When they got here, we ate at BeauJos Pizza (so good)
then came home and opened presents!!!!
that night we went to Chipotle for a late night snack.
This chipotle (2 blocks from our house) is the very first Chipotle ever!
The "Evans" chipotle.
The manager gave us a tour and free t-shirts!
alec got cameron this remote controlled helicoptor,
and he hasn't stopped playing with it yet :)
good job alec! - - The next day we went to church, Mona's for lunch, the REI flagship, and a movie.
the next day alec, blake, and david went to Loveland to ski, and Lea Ann, Cam, and I met up with them and picked alec up, went to eat, and walk around georgetown, see snow, and drive up Kenosha Pass... it was beautiful.
we kept seeing these frozen waterfalls, and Lea Ann, bless her heart, wanted to get out of the car and see them, but this is what happened:
she was okay, and laughing :)
but her lovely d-in-law had to snap this pic...
once the boys got her up there!
we had gone to this hoomemade candy store in georgetown, and got horeberry (sp?) candy, ppl used to use it as medicine, but for some reason we wanted to try it. i thought it taksted like poo.
but the man that was helping me at the store was so cute, funny, and old. they also made their own ice cream. So i said to him "i have to know one thing, do you make all this ice cream yourself?" and he said he did, besides the sugar free one. i cant describe how funny he was but he just was. and he even made fun of me for eating and liking braums ice cream :)
alec's frozen non-gloved hands.
these people from TX, what are they thinking?
alec and cam sledding
alec pushing lea ann down the mountain!

after they left, we went to a movie, then opened our presents :)
the 24th we hung out at home,
then went to church, all dressed up!
it was where we used to meet when we were smaller
in an art gallery downtown!
laughing at something?
cool artwork huh?
i think this one was like $3500

then cameron and kimel went snowshoeing/
they built a fire from what was going to be flint
but turned out to be matches.

built their snow cave and catch a rabbit or something?
