Font Linky & a Busy Saturday!!!

I want to share with you a cool tool that may help you with your love of links.  Do you hate trying to decide which font to use?  Wish there was an easier way? 

Try out  Word mark it 
This super cool website lets you type words and see them with every font- super cute!!!

So, on to some of my new favorites (most of which are recent downloads... trying to help get them out there)  The names of them are under the words Every New Beginning.

Now you should share your favorite fonts too!  Head on over to Teachery Tidbits
So today wasn't my typical Saturday... during the school year, I usually want to spend Sat. half comatose with a marathon of some sort playing in the background (Law & Order, Real Housewives, Dance Moms... anything that doesn't involve thinking!).  But today was different...

I woke up at the crack of 6 am and decided to get ready to go to the Goodwill 1/2 off sale.  I had visions of sugarplums (or at least 1/2 priced goodies) dancing in my head...

Sadly- this is all I found: (Awful night time pic!  It is fairly large- at least 16x20 (probably larger)

I originally bought it with the intent to cover up the painting or repaint the frame.  Now I am not so sure- opinions???  It seems to actually be an oil painting.  Not bad for $3.00 :)


Then, off to the farmers market (do you have one in your town) where I bought:

Dropped off some things at our library and mosied on to the other Goodwill (a bust) and out to Walmart to buy ribbon for my light project I am working on.

It was there I ran into these:  Blech!!!!!  Hot Dog Chips???? Would anyone want to eat these????

And this line.... I think everyone in my town was here.  I see why it is one of the highest grossing in the US!  The lines were at least 7-8 deep! 

Now I had the supplies I needed to work on some crafts :)

Then I helped a new teacher friend move :)  I was able to meet some other teachers she works with too.  Always nice to meet others & help a friend.

Ran to Kroger & stocked up on some pork (1.99 a lb!!! deal!) This will keep us stocked for quite a while!!! I had them cut the big tenderloin into 2 roasts and 14 pork chops.  So for $20, we have at least 9-10 meals. 

Made dinner (tacos- my fav!) and hubby mentioned wanting to go to Hastings (a book/movie store) so I tagged along.  Read some trashy magazines & then came back home, where I am now about to start cracking on my light project. 

All things that make me realize it is summer!!! Loving it :)   What have you been up to so far (if you are out)???


  1. Ew, hot dog chips?! Some of the chips these days are questionable!!!

    I went to Wal-Mart today with one of the shortest lists ever...and ended up spending over 2 hours in there grabbing random things for upcoming activities at school and my cakepop business.

  15. The diet focuses on natural goodness, no processed foods in

  17. Perhaps most amazingly, though, a double-tap
    on any word doesn't highlight it. Most folks never really think about the diet completely, and now they are trying to do what the caveman ate fueled his strength. You may have to modify a paleolithic diet was superior to a Mediterranean diet or a similar diet and lifestyle through these periods. It has been shown in humans who consume a diet similar to those found in psychoactive drugs like opium and morphine.
