Today has not been a good day. Terrible storms in my area. I've been feeling like complete crap for two days. Can't tell if it's the weather, a depressive episode, some kind of illness, or all of the above. I wanted to stay in bed most of the day. And now I have a migraine.

And oh yeah, we're going to war. Trump has started bombing Syria, and the only thing that is going to accomplish is pissing off Putin and Russia.

And Don Rickles died. Yeah, he was ninety, but it's still sad. RIP, you hockey puck!

Had a very successful shopping trip this week, though. Three new dresses, a new purse, a top, and a pair of leggings. Katie took me to her crack dealer- AKA a LuLaRoe party/open house. She bought me a dress as payment for watching Giada last weekend!

I finally had that "Advent calendar lunch" with Katie, and we did some shopping. She also gave me an extra present, a cute nightshirt. Also, I found an app that lets me put my itunes stuff on my phone. And finally, I learned that one of my favorite nail polishes (Deborah Lippmann's Whatever Lola Wants) is still available, and a new bottle is on its way to me! Unfortunately, my favorite, 99 Luftballons, is discontinued. :(

And this cute little guy arrived- the Black Knight from Minimates. Usually, I think they're ugly figures, but BK isn't.

Redskins, Broncos, and the Nationals won today. The Nationals are the NL East Champs again, and are in the playoffs!

Dad and I took Mom to BWI Airport for her flight to Louisville. She's staying with Aunt Pauletta for a week. Originally, I was going to go, too, but she decided she wanted to go alone.

Bon Voyage! I love watching planes take off and land.

After her flight left, Dad and I went to Tysons Corner to shop. I had a lot of fun at American Girl Place! I loved the displays.

I was planning to buy Maryellen's Christmas Cookie set, but I didn't see it until I'd already checked out. I did get her holiday party outfit, Samantha's Be Forever Meet dress, a doll T-shirt, and the special Purchase with Purchase outfit. I'll post the photos tomorrow. I also have Melody's Christmas dress on the way.

I was tempted to get one of the Wellie Wishers, but decided to hold off. I can get them at Toys R Us.

We spilt a pizza at California Pizza Kitchen, and did some shopping for Mom's birthday. I haven't been to Lord and Taylor or Bloomingdale's in ages. Didn't buy anything, but loved looking at the displays, like this one for Louis Vuitton.

*is tired*

I spent the day with Mom and Katie. First, Katie had to go to D.C. to drop off Paul's Department of Energy badge and keys. Several of his former co-workers came out to talk to Katie even though they knew Paul wasn't with us. They miss him terribly. He'd wanted to come in today, but was too tired. He has his good days and bad days.

After that, we headed to National Harbor. We had lunch at a great seafood place, The Walrus. I had the best fried shrimp I'd had in years!

We did some shopping on the waterfront and at the outlet after lunch. There wasn't time to go on the Wheel, but Mom and I plan to come back for my birthday.

The Peeps store was fun!

I got a cute plush Peep bunny, and a free Peep beach ball!

We're celebrating Paul's birthday in Richmond tomorrow, because Sam is off work. Monday, Dad is taking me to Tyson's Corner, so we can go to the American Girl store. Melody isn't available until August 25th, but Dad is getting gift cards for her, and I might get one of the Wellie Wishers. They're so cute. I haven't been to Tyson since before the AG store opened, so I'm looking forward to the shopping!

I found a cute Thanksgiving sweater for a teddy bear at A.C. Moore. I was able to adjust it a bit to fit Emma Louise!

I picked up some stuff at Tuesday Morning today, and one thing I found was a wine bottle sweater. This one looks like it won't need much adjustment for the doll. Found a cute mini tea set and ornaments, too.

Comic news- the 90s variant of Black Knight #2 came out today:

Dane is with the Avengers of the 90s, including Sersi, Hercules, Crystal, and Giant-Man. The leather jackets were a thing for some reason. And Dane had ditched the Ebony Blade for a lightsaber-type thing. The 90s were a strange time for comics. The first issue of Black Knight comes out next week! Can't wait.
mollybarton: (mr met)
I have a new Mets fan in the house. :p

I have some great Christmas stuff for her. This gingerbread set from American Girl was 50% off, so I got it. I can see why it was so expensive- it's a lot of stuff, very well made, with a lot of detail.

I also made a necklace for Emma Louise to wear with the apron and hat:

I used a miniature plate from Michaels.

I ordered some awesome new nail polish:

It's called "Where we're going we don't need roads."

The hip-hop cover variant for Black Knight #1. It's based on Food and Liquor by Lupe Fiasco.

I want to see the action figure variant! There should be an unlettered preview soon, too.

Sick as a dog. Yuck. Still managed to do the shopping today. I bought Mom's birthday presents and some new nail polish for myself. And Jo Ann Fabric has a ton of Christmas craft stuff out, so I picked up some bottle brush trees. I have so many ornaments to make before Christmas!
mollybarton: (sick black knight)
Had a great birthday. Lots of loot:

I'm going to start that cross stitch tomorrow! The Marvel book is awesome.

Aw, Clint and Tasha together again.

Katie and I went shopping at Potomac Mills. It was so much fun. I found a great purse and accesories at the Vera Bradley outlet. With my birthday coupon, plus the store's 50% off storewide sale, I got a huge discount! We had dinner at Cheesecake Factory. Yum.
mollybarton: (sick black knight)
Had some fun today! Found two cute tops at Macy's:

I picked the right day to go there.

MOTHER FUCKING MACY'S SALE! We have a dinky little Macy's, but every now and then, I find good stuff.

Got some other goodies at Ulta, and a keychain at Books-A-Million:

Finally, I hit the Tuesday Morning. Didn't find what I was looking for (sheets), but I found a bunch of cheap jewelry supplies. And I ran into this little guy in the parking lot...

Got home just in time for a big downpour. We needed the rain.

Colorado State lost to Air Force Friday, ending their longest ever winning streak (9 games). Still bowl eligible, but out of contention for the Mountain West title. 10-2 is a damn good record to finish the season with, though!

Getting ready for Christmas- my first Christmas related Adventures of Clintasha/Shelf Avengers item. Fury directs the Shelf Avenger Handbell Choir- Black Widow, Hawkeye, Black Knight, Captain Britain, and Captain America.

handbell avengers

I used those five because they were the only ones that could grip the little bells. :p

Did a lot of shopping today. Mom got me a great set of Deborah Lippmann nail polishes. I did her nails in red glitter, then did my own in a glittery cranberry. So much fun.

Only shirt I've ever seen with the Black Knight on it!

Dane is happy. But he can't quite recreate that pose.

My newest cross stitch- one of the chairs in Mirabilia's Sitting Pretty series.

I've done a lot of work on it already.

A surprise at Barnes and Noble- a new mini American Girl. This is Isabelle, the Girl of the Year for 2014. They've never done minis for the Girls of the Year before. She's cute.

Had my annual eye exam yesterday- everything was good, don't need new glasses, etc. But I need to go back for a baseline test for future checkups for glaucoma. Ugh. Also, the dye they used for pressure tests plus dilation gave me a whopping migraine. :(
mollybarton: (hawkeye)
This time from the mall.

They do a nice little light show every night during the Christmas season.

The bells had two concerts with the Fredericksburg Chamber Chorale. The last was today. They both went well. After ringing, I went to dinner with Mom and Dad, and we did some last minute shopping. It's been a crazy eight days- two rehearsals, three concerts, and two parties. I'm beat. Now I just have to get through Christmas Eve!

Had fun shopping tonight- it wasn't as crazy as I thought it would be. I guess everyone was eating dinner while we were in Macy's. I also stopped by Charming Charlie and Books-a-Million.

Tomorrow after church, I'm going to see The Hobbit. After Christmas I'll get around to seeing Anchorman 2, American Hustle, Saving Mr. Banks, and hopefully Twelve Years a Slave, if it doesn't leave the theater.

Gorgeous red nail polish and a new dress. Mom and I did some shopping this afternoon, and she gave me one of my presents early so I could wear it tomorrow!

Choir rehearsal went well this morning. I think we'll be fine tomorrow.
mollybarton: (hawkeye)
Make up and accessory wise, anyway. I had to shop for presents at Charming Charlie and Sephora today, and picked up a couple of things for myself, too.

Christmas ball necklace (they're plastic, not glass!).

One of two awesome nail polishes I got today:

The other is a gorgeous red. I'm going to wear that one on Sunday.

Plus, this is a bracelet I made a month ago- hadn't posted it yet.

Choir practice last night wore me out. I think we'll be ready for the Carol Service on Sunday, but it's going to be close. Some of our singers haven't been to practice recently. The big rehearsal is Saturday morning...after that, Mom, Dad, Katie, and I are headed to Potomac Mills to do more Christmas shopping.

But at least my doll tree is up!

I still have a ton of decorating and cleaning up to do.

I did some Christmas shopping today, and picked up some nice new nail polish. OPI's Mariah Carey Christmas collection.

Mom and Dad took me shopping at Potomac Mills on Tuesday. I don't always have a lot of luck, but oh, my, I did that day.

I watched Say Anything last night.

Still one of my favorite movie scenes EVER:

*plays In Your Eyes* *looks out window* *still no Lloyd Dobler waiting for me* *cries*

Went shopping in Richmond with Mom, Dad, and Sam. They have a nice Dillard's at the South Pump Town Center...and a huge motherfucking Nordstrom's! Holy cow, I've never seen one so huge. Spent all the time in Dillard's- maybe I'll go back later for Nordstrom's, just for shits and giggles.

Had dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. Excellent chicken marsala, and a huge slice of Ultimate Red Velvet Cheesecake for dessert. I ate 2/3 of it. I REGRET NOTHING.

I'm still sick. Almost better, though. The meds are making me very tired.

Long week. First off, Sam had ended up in the hospital with pneumonia this week. He's home (in Richmond) now, taking his medicines, and Nikki is looking after him. Katie and Paul both think he needs to hold on to her! :)

We spent Friday at Potomac Mills shopping for Katie's birthday presents. Lunch at Red Robin- Katie found the onion rings just the right size for a bracelet!
 photo rr1_zps2361cc05.jpg

It was a good shopping day.

I finished another movie quote cross stitch- this time from Spaceballs!
 photo aholes_zps901a04ff.jpg

Also, I framed the Airplane! quote:

Finally, some of the Avengers explored my inflatable Enterprise! Clint and Tasha enjoyed the ride, Thor worried about Loki.
