My other "thing" I've been up to .....
is opening up shop on facebook
The Rainshine Boutique. Specializing in all things cute enough to fall with the rainshine from the silverlining of life!
Catchy eh?

Blooming Bands aka adult headbands (Like the one seen in my logo) are $6. I can do just about any color combo you'd like. And the best part. FREE SHIPPING 24/7 on everything in the shop!
You can click my badge at the top left of this page to "like" The Rainshine Boutique on Facebook.
And if you are interested in purchasing, just shoot me an email via gmail or preferably at therainshineboutique@yahoo.com
Help me fill my shop's albums with gorgeous items I created for you :)

Oh and let's not forget the tornado that's still happening in my kitchen. Yep, still! They tore the corkboard stuff up today and found that the actual wood floor is still wet. So, we still have the stupid fans and dehumidifier.. and the guy is coming back in the morning.
AAANNNDD, on top of all that, Jack and I leave for Ohio in less than 24 hours, and I haven't even started packing.

  2. You have a great list so far! I love 38 & 39...I have to remember them so I can put them on my next 101 list! The ones with the alphabet are fun...I'm always checking which letters I already have:) If you were closer (we're both in WA) I'd do # 8 with you...I keep putting it off. I also need to do # 32...that's what my husband has so I can't drive his car:(
