ONE STEP CLOSER TO REAL LIFE AGAIN


Tomorrow is the official day.... that we put our home on the MLS and try to sell it. It has been an exhausting 3 months. These past 11 months have been nothing short of a mini nightmare but thankfully a huge part of the stress is coming to an end (which is getting this darn house ready for the market). Someone please remind me why I decided to buy a new house and sell our home in the middle of winter and in such a crappy market????

I miss making soap and I miss making cards :( I cannot wait to get back into my soap kitchen and start doing some serious online soap shopping :) That will certainly make me smile again.

Please, everyone, keep your fingers crossed for me that the home sells quickly!!

2. One weird fact: I don't sleep. Seriously! I probably get about 2 hours sleep a night. Been that way since a child. Second weird fact: I eat peanut butter on french toast. Maybe not weird to everyone but to those around me it is super weird. Third weird fact: I over buy books. I have about 100 books I've never read. I buy and buy and buy and don't even read half of them. It is an addiction. Fourth weird fact: I like to do those silly search and finds on kids menus at restaurants. I like seeing who can finish them first, me or my kids. LOL!! Fifth weird fact: I hate having dirty hands. If I get one speck of something on them it will drive me crazy until I wash them off. Another childhood issue. LOL!!!

3. I want to see: Tibet, India, Italy, Alaska, Africa

NOW THEY HAVE SOAP JEWELRY

I'm one of those people that has a tendency to wear jewelry that represents who I am or whatever phase I'm going through in my life. When I was in my late teens/early twenties I was heavily into rock climbing so I purchased a necklace charm of a carabiner and wore it religously. When I moved to Mexico in my college years I purchased a bunch of little charms to go on a charm bracelet that fit who I was at that time (a dog for the strays I use to hang out with every day, a palm tree because, well, I was living in Mexico, et...) on and on and so forth. Well, not too long ago I was surfing soap supply shops and found some soap jewelry. By George, what will jewelers think up next. LOL!!

These are super cute and they can be found at OREGON TRAIL SOAPS
