Mimi’s quote for the day –
(Page 1)

***Spent time with family. Ate some great food, enjoyed a cocktail (or three) relaxed, watched the “ball” drop, vegged out on Netflix today and enjoyed life. Thankful and blessed.

***IN THE CRAFT CORNER:
One of my crochet groups is having this challenge,

We’re following Yarnutopia on YouTube and their
365 Days of Granny Squares tutorials.
This is my square #1.  (I’m using my scrap yarn.)

#2 – MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY – Cart Full Of Babies

“Missed Connection Monday” is brought to you by your local Craigslist. These are real “love notes” that strangers leave for other strangers in the ‘Personals’ section of Craigslist.
Or as I like to call it –
‘Your local serial killer hunting ground.’

***Seriously? A cart full of babies and “full sleves” are your turn on?
You should probably check out the brother down below…

“I am looking for a penpal for my brother please email if interested. Fun outgoing gentleman.”
***Translated this means his “brother” is incarcerated.

The Lions blew it yesterday and gave the game to the Packers and just thinking about it makes my head want to explode. They play the Seahawks on Saturday. I have no comment.
2017-detroit-lions-just-one-before-i-dieOne of my goals this year was to sew my way thru my fabric stash and not buy any fabric until I absolutely, positively must. This is going to be beyond challenging but I’m going to give it my best shot.

After rummaging thru box #1, I picked out my first fabric of the New Year to start my first project of the New Year. I’m pretty excited to start because I’ll be doing the majority of fabric cutting on my new Cricut that “Santa” brought me. I LOVE this new toy.
Project photos to follow.
2017-1st-fabric-jan 2017-divider-line-blue-icyAnother one of my goals was to read more so I signed up for the Goodreads 2017 Reading Challenge and 2017 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge with Corinne over at ‘Everyday Gyaan.’ I committed to reading 50 books this year. I’m hoping it’s more and it’d be super cool if I doubled that! I love to read and I used to have a book glued to my hands. I need to get back to that.
My current read is…
2017-book-1-the-untellingSo far it’s super good.
2017-divider-line-blue-icyI jumped on the scale this morning just to take a lit’l look-see and immediately set another goal. Holy crap, there’s no way I’ve gained that much weight and yet, apparently there is… Back to Slim Fast and Weight Watchers, it is
2017-batman-robin-you-were-fat-in-august2017-divider-line-blue-icyWe’ve still got quite a bit of snow here and it’s super cold out so I’ll definitely be inside working on my projects and getting some reading done.
What do you do when it’s too cold to really go out and enjoy the day?
Are you working on any projects?
Reading any good books?

Also, it’s day 2 into the New Year. What’s the vibe?
Does it feel like it’s going to be a good year or one fraught with challenges??
Lemme’ know in the comments below.

Happy Monday! Here’s to a great week ahead!

#1 – MEET THE “GLAM-GRAM”

2017-numbersHappy 2017 Everyone!
How many of you started out last night like this?
2017-new-year-groupAnd ended it like this??
2017-retro-new-year-passed-out

Or if you’re like me. Your night started out like this.
And ended like this…
2017-netflixingHow ever your night began and ended I hope you all remained safe n’ sound and are ready to grab this New Year by the pussy, balls, horns!
2017-divider-line-blue-icyWORD OF THE YEAR –
Every year I pick a word to focus on and guide my year ahead and this year I have chosen the word, ME!
That’s right. ME.
Seriously. That’s my word for 2017 and I make no apologies. This year I’m going to be a selfish bitch. This year truly is going to be all about me.
all-about-me2017-divider-line-blue-icyFrom the top of my head to the tips of my toes and every crack and crevasse nook and cranny in between, 2017 will be me, me, me.
It’s going to be a year of pampering myself physically, mentally and emotionally.

I have goals that I’ve set for myself and self-imposed deadlines that I must and will meet this year, with lots of play time in between.
My only concern is that 24 hours in a day is not enough time.
NOTE TO SELF –2017-24-hours-in-a-day2017-divider-line-blue-icyI know I’m not the only one who picks a “word of the year” and I’d really love to know if any of you pick a word and why.

Most importantly, because you all know what a nosy bitch I am. I want to know about your New Year’s Eve and whether or not you ended up on the floor or in the bathtub like say…
My friend the “Glam-Gram.
2017-stacey-floor 2017-stacey-bathtubAnd through it all, much like Indiana Jones and his dusty ‘ol hat. Her tiara and faux leopard print QVC full-length coat remained intact, thus earning her not only that faux Walmart tiara but also, the title of “Glam Gram.”
Long live the glam! AND the gram!
2017-divider-line-blue-icyHere’s to a New Year filled with whirled peas and everyone remembering to love their neighbor as themselves.
Minus the fondling.

And if all else fails. Be the “Glam-Gram” and go drink in the tub!
