Giveaway winner will be chosen via in the evening on Monday, September 26th

Maybe this will be a new Tuesday thing.  My ups & downs.  I’ll start with downs so we can end on a good note.

* Our car is leaking transmission fluid.
* Tomorrow morning I need to call around, pick out a place to have the car taken, call a tow truck, and cross my fingers that it gets fixed.
* We potentially need to rent a car to get to Olive’s baby shower that’s in Iowa on Saturday.
* I don’t like to talk about money. It makes me feel weird.
* Talking about money leads to other down thoughts such as: why did we buy this house? I wish I didn’t have this house. Why is this house in Minneapolis? And so on.
* I found a barely used lens on craiglist that I really really want. But it’s too expensive. Oh, there’s that money thing again.
* Our pup sheds too much this time of year – it makes me want to cry, scream, and send her to a distant relative’s home for approximately one month.
* I keep trying to make cookies but it keeps not happening.
* I’ve been really bad at reading blogs so far this week. And I’m behind on posting on my own.

* We’re not crazy about our car so maybe we could get a new one?
* Olive is having a baby shower on Saturday – or maybe a welcome Olive shower? What’s it called after the baby has arrived?
* We might get to rent a car for the weekend.
* The weather is nice.
* I won a store credit to Along for the Ride @ etsy on Much Love Illy’s blog today. At least my day started off lovely! I’ve decided to get some of these:

I’m really excited.

* Olive is cute.

I almost forgot!  It’s Friday! :)

I made a mobile for Olive this week. But I think I like it more than she does. I’ll post the details and some photos soon! Keeping with my mobile thoughts of late, here are some wonderful mobile’s found on etsy.

Big Dipper Baby Mobile, Medium, in Lime Breeze from The Wonderland Studio in Massachusetts. $46

Made to order Owl Mobile from the EvelynX Gift Shop in California. $60

Tennessee Autumn Stylized Leaf Mobile from Moon Lily Mobiles in Colorado. $198

vela multi from The Starcraft. $78

Felted Wool Mobile – Pea Shoot from Sqrl & Bee Studio. $70

Um.  My mobile is not as cute as these.  Oh dear.

Happy Friday!  :)
