colorful not quirky

today i hung out in the kitchen
making jam
starwberry AND raspberry
do you know how much sugar is in jam?
I didn't, but it's a lot....yum
wanna know what else?
jam is super easy to make

it goes a little like this....




while jamming out to...


i was nervous
i called my mom
5+ times
but turns out it is pretty
easy peasy.

I bought Sure Jell Premium Fruit Pectin
and followed the inside instructions for
{quick & easy freezer jam & jelly}

today really was a day of experiments
i also tried this new hair do
my friend Chelse linked a Maiden Braid Tutorial to her blog
and i have been dying to try it
the results....




meish meish 
i need thicker hair! 
well it was fun to try 
even if i had to add a braided headband thing to fill it in.

i also applied for a job
{okay i am always doing this}
but this job is way different than the usual {advertising} jobs i apply to
its for a Adoption Agency
to be a Placement Coordinator 
i think it would be such a rewarding job
keeping my fingers crossed!

i bought my first Sam's Club membership today
totally made me feel like a grown up

the guy two people in front of me
at the store bought $105 worth of
Dr. Pepper. Ya that's A LOT of DP.

then the guy right in front of me 
bought a bajillion packs of kool-aid
did you know they ring those up individually?
i did because i always get in line behind 
the person that is buying out the store of kool-aid
true story.
so during this mayhem
i read a cute article about  Zooey Deschanel
i heart her.

Happy ALMOST Friday!!!
Ohhh how i love the weekends!!!

i call my mom at least 10x when i'm cooking something and i don't know what i'm doing. love the hair do! braids are always a good choice. and good luck with that job! oh, and i had no idea, but emily deschanel from 'bones' and zooey deschanel are sisters - took me forever to figure that out, ha

So, the only thing my husband and I will eat is home-made jam and I am always trying to convert others! Love it- and I love Zooey Deschanel too- Do you like her music (She & Him)?
