Do any of you lot tweet?

I don't totally understand how it all works (hashtags? RT? what?), but I've recently decided its actually quite fun. It would be a whole lot funner though if there were more people I actually know doing it too. Since I also haven't figured out how to find you if you are on there, let me know! (or just follow me? I'm @dani_c_123)

please pass the crayons

I've been trying, unsuccessfully, to interest TJ in new living room furniture for a very long time. I finally realized I've been approaching it all wrong: Show him pictures on design blogs for ideas and pictures on websites for options - not going to do it. Ask for a to-scale drawing of the room complete with interchangeable furniture options and he's all in. Note to self: The answer is always graph paper.

sugar cookies take 2

Last time I attempted these there were a few issues. Now that some time has passed, I'm willing to admit there may have been some baker error. I enlisted another helper (a must) and tried again. Maybe after a few more holidays we'll have these things figured out.
