Sarah Likes To...

I just had to do this.... My friend Erika posted this on her blog and when I did it myself, it was too funny not to share.

All you have to do is google "[your name] likes to" and then post the top ten results. Here's what happened when I did my name:

1. Sarah likes to smell Colleen's armpits (mmmm, teen spirit)
2. Sarah likes to move it (as in, "I like to move it, move it")
3. Sarah likes to suggest a lot of naughty little taboos (yeah, so?)
4. Sarah likes to be in control and she appears to have some issues with attachment. She can exhibit temper tantrums, be defiant and uncooperative.
5. Sarah likes to share the wealth, too. (when the wealth comes, I'll be all about sharing it)
6. Sarah likes to ROCK.
7. Sarah likes to pet cute creatures, even if they are just pictures.
8. Sarah likes to shop.
9. Sarah likes to... Eat! (too true)
10. Sarah likes to clap her hands and say her first word, "yay!"

You should try this. Especially you, Mollie. ;)

garage sales

Garage Sale-ing is one of those scrumptious-in-theory past times I have yet to fully embrace in my adulthood. I remember tagging along with my mom when I was a kid, and her being a total pro at scouting out the best finds and making great deals. Growing up, much of our home was furnished with cool garage sale finds. And for a long time, I've wanted to make it a part of my Saturday morning spring thru autumn routine. Mostly because it's one of the only venues were you can find furniture items not made of particle board or veneer, but still in my price range.

Which leads me to announce with excitement, my recent discovery of a cool new tool to help in all of our greatest garge sale scouting aspirations: Yard Sale Treasure Map. It finds garage sales in your area and you can add any others you find through your local classifieds or craigslist. Then it maps out your day for you. Click print, grab the keys and you're on your way to finding treasure.

happy earth day.

You might not expect to hear that from me since the whole green movement typically has me gagging. Don't get me wrong, I believe in doing good things for our planet... I just don't like the whole approach that most of the marketing/hollywood world has taken. bleh.

Anyway, I do love this beautiful place where we all get to live. Enjoying the intricacies and majesties of the earth makes me feel closer to God. It's pretty, pretty great.

the absence.

I realize that I haven't been blogging very much for the past few months, and I think I'm going to try to get back into it. A few nights ago, Spencer and I were discussing some possible reasons of why I've stopped blogging... here's the synopsis:

Content - Sure, we bought a house recently (which is really cool and I need to post more about) and have been trying out Square Foot Gardening and composting for the first time (these things are supposed to sound potentially interesting) but it's also been winter and I don't feel like I've done anything exciting since the first three snowfalls.

Time - The majority of the time I spend on the computer these days is usually in some effort to keep my business rolling. And before that, it was all about finding us a crazy amazing place to live.

Bitterness - I realized that lots of people out there were making lots of money blogging about the everyday... This made me a) not want to read their blogs anymore (even though I was already hooked like a good reality tv show) b) not want to blog since I'm not making any money from it myself. Silly, but kind of true.

Relevance - I think that one of the reasons I began blogging in the first place (other than documenting my life, and my love of writing and photographing) was to have relevance to some external audience. Since getting married, I have a captive audience to report my daily randomosities to; the blog has become a bit less useful in this capacity.

Mainstreamness - When I started my blog way back in the day, blogs (or at least personal ones) weren't so... normal. I don't know, I just tend to have a hard time with certain things that everyone does/reads/listens to (still haven't read the da vinci code or twilight series) and now it seems like just about everyone has a blog.

Despite all of that, I am hoping to make my little corner of the online world all shiny and new again. Until then, check this out - one of the funniest things I've read in a long time.
