Turning 30 wasn’t as exciting as my bloggy absence would you leave you to believe; we had dinner with a few good friends, and that was the extent of the celebration.
But the Fox house has been busy! Last week, we had our floating stairs replaced. We now have completely enclosed stairs, with a nice [...]
This is the GPS track from Sunday’s MouseAdventure @ Disneyland.
Well, at least before my phone died after about 4.5 hours.
I think the 3 markers indicate points where we stopped moving for significant periods of time because we were puzzling.
Total estimate of 5 miles in 6 hours of game play (I forgot [...]
Last Saturday, I met up with Michelle at the South Bay Quilt Guild show. It’s always interesting to meet someone you only know through blogs and emails, but she’s a complete sweetie! The show was sort of interesting – a lot of quilts that aren’t really my style, but no matter what fabrics and patterns [...]
My newest BFF Jacqueline came to visit late Saturday night. She wasn’t my BFF on Saturday night…but Sunday morning, she was all about being my BFF. I was greeted heartily in the morning: “Michelle!” And then she points to the non-scaredy cat Sylvester: “Tat” (and also “Titty” – which makes me giggle).
So where does [...]
No, not what you think.
Yesterday was not only my friend Miranda’s birthday (and also her twin sis Monica), but my friend Christina’s birthday (Christina of the Jason & Christina wedding guestbook quilt).
Christina wanted to go to Disneyland for her birthday, so Steve & I were happy to accompany her & Jason as the [...]
I should have known that something wacky would happen after I pontificated about the virtues of Disneyland…
On Wednesday, we went to Disneyland, as it was Kristina’s boyfriend Calvin’s birthday, so he could get in free. I think that the birthday promotion thing is doing great things for boosting park attendance…which is sort of bad, I [...]
Saturday was a complete lazy day, I gotta admit. Which is fine, I had a long week. I am now the queen of 1099 forms…or at least I was for 127 of them this week. What a pain! Coupled with a lot of month-end & year-end reporting we were wrapping up from December, I probably [...]
This is going to be my new project. And based on my past Mouse Adventure experiences, I bet I can compile photos from Disneyland to complete the whole calendar.
Fall 2008 MA Team – Cory, Shannon, Michelle, Steve
In between watching LOTR movies, I cut out the pieces for 2 new handbags:And since I wasn’t sure if I was ready to completely fuss with the expensive Belgium linen Winter Foxes fabric, I decided to make the butterflies my prototype bag using the Manhattan Handbag pattern I bought a few months ago and haven’t [...]
Today we spent all day @ Disney, doing a scavenger hunt called MouseAdventure. This is my 7th time participating (held 2x/year), and Steve’s 6th time. Steve missed the spring ’08, he was in Denver for work (and don’t get me started on the spring…it sucked!). We originally were planning for 2 teams – Guys versus [...]
