Notes to self:

1. Rainy days are much more romantic in old movies {and instances when you can stay inside and read or watch said old movies} than in real life.
I am already awkward and clumsy enough. So imagine me walking to class. I'm wearing this awesome blue trench coat that I got at Old Navy on clearance, but unfortunately, this trench coat makes it impossible to carry bags on my shoulders. They just slide off. I'm carrying my school bag, my purse, my umbrella, and a large pizza box (which I converted into a flannel board to use for a preschool activity at the center).
It looked nothing like this:

But at least having one of these beautiful vintage-style bubble umbrellas makes things a little better. :)

2. When I got on Yahoo to check my email, I saw a news headline that said, "Bieber Parodied," with a picture of Justin Beiber next to Michael Buble. It led me to this video.
I seriously have a crush on Michael Buble. And this video made me laugh so much. I don't know anything about Justin Beiber except for the Elvis Presley teen girl mayhem he induces. But of what I've seen of him, Michael Buble's impersonation of his mannerisms is spot on. And he sure does have the James Dean "Rebel Without a Cause" angry brow thing down perfectly. :) *Note: There are a few content issues in the video when he's parodying a rock star...skip from 0:35 to 1:00 to avoid them...but the rest of the video is worth watching!*

3. I love Etsy. So much.
I just found a couple of new shops that sell art (and art prints) that are beautiful! I really want this shirt and I love this and this. And I really love those mugs that have P&P quotes on them...but I wouldn't pay $20 for one (including shipping). I want to make one of my own. I have a feeling that after this craft festival this weekend I'm going to be doing a lot of selfish crafting and sewing. :) By the way, I am possibly going to be opening an Etsy store quicker than I had anticipated. I've had so many questions lately that I'm really considering starting one as soon as possible. I've even ordered an Etsy success kit, which will hopefully help me out a lot.

Until next time,
