Good use out of the scanner

My mom gave me some baby and growing up pics about 3 years ago for our wedding video . . . . and I just got around to scanning the pics into my computer. Maybe I'm just really behind the times - but I can't believe what a quick process scanning in 169 photos is! I was so happy when I realized I could scan 3 pictures at the same time and the magical scanner could crop around each one. I thought the siblings might have fun seeing some of the pics I scanned in!

Loves and Likes of the weekend

Bryan and I have been without a printer at home for oh too long to even remember how long it's been. I did some research on Saturday and we went out and bought a printer/scanner/copier/fax. I love that we now have a printer at home again and are even more connected to the world :)

I was so psyched about the purchase that as soon as we got home I got the printer all set-up. The printer is just a like for me. I don't know if it's just warming up to being in the family but it doesn't always grab the paper - kind of a must since that is its purpose of being (grabbing the paper and producing whatever it is I want it to produce). But at least we have a printer now and I have a feeling that we'll become much better friends!

On Saturday night we decided to hit up Red Robin and take advantage of its dinner and movie deal (as you can see from the sidebar there are a lot of movies I want to see right now). Right after we put our names down some friends of ours showed up and were planning on going to the same movie so we had dinner and went to the movie together. I loved that we got to hang out with Brian and Kellie because we haven't seen them in forever and I got to see her cute little pregnant belly.

We went to Bedtime Stories with Adam Sandler and a fave of mine Courtney Cox Arquette. I liked the movie. I thought it was cute but maybe not my favorite movie I've seen in the last few months. Still a fun movie.

I love that this Sunday was ward conference. We had a really great sacrament meeting. Bryan and I met with our stake president a few months ago to renew our temple recommend and I find our stake president to be a really incredible man!

I was a little sad though that I had to miss out on hearing the Stake Relief Society Presidency talk to our ward because I'm in Young Women's in a different ward :( But I do like knowing that when the ward that I'm in the young women's has ward conference I'll get to take advantage of hearing the Stake Young Women Presidency talk to the girls!

Today's lookin up already

I received a pleasant email this morning. I've been telling Bryan that I'm in desperate need of a new coat for months. . . .but I haven't been able to commit to any because I don't want to spend like $150 on a coat - blah!! So I got an email from Victoria's Secret telling me that I can take 50% off any coat or sweater (even the clearance ones) - promo code PICK50. My friend La Bethany helped me find another promo code where if you spend $50 you can take $10 off - promo code FA814077. The 50% off promo ends tomorrow! I was so psyched about this I wanted to share it with the world - so if you're in need of a coat head over and make use of the sale!

Here are some samples of their lovely coats:

I ended up getting these two lovely coats:

Unnecessary Baggage

Today I threw away 27 shirts, 1 pair of shoes & 3 pairs of jeans! I cannot even explain how good it feels to get rid of that extra baggage. This all started with my husband looking into our closet and exclaiming "you have so many clothes," and me responding with what I've probably said 100 times, "Yes I have a lot of clothes in our closet - but I don't wear most of it!" I have a serious problem of holding onto clothes that I don't wear. I'm not kidding - most of that stuff I threw away I've had since high school. I don't know why I still have it - I seriously don't know why I still have it. Now I'm not saying this little exercise I did of throwing some clothes away has completely cured me. . . . because I still have some clothes in there that I probably will not wear again that I just could not part with :( At least it's a start though!!

Marley & Me

I can not believe how many movies are in the theatre right now that I want to see!!
We went to Marley & Me last night. I thought it was a cute movie, but. . . . I'm not a dog person, so I don't think I'd ever be able to get into it as much as someone that loves dogs. I was entertained though and I do love Owen Wilson and Jennifer Anniston
