Curing a case of the "Mondays"

Feb 4, 2013
Pin It Oh my.  Ok.  After thinking up my clever little title up there, I went to IMDB to see what year Office Space came out.  1999.  That means that movie and my little joke are (YIKES) 14 - as in FOURTEEN - years old.

Holy cow, Gen Xers, we're getting old.

Over the weekend, we had a couple with their young children over for pizza and to let the kiddos play.  At dinner, we were talking about the college years and how we met our spouses, etc.  I had assumed this couple was the same age, or just slightly younger than us.  Somehow it came up that there were no cell phones when my hubby and I were in college.  (Well, they existed, but hardly anyone had one or if you did, it was basically for emergencies.)

The other couple was like "whoa, what year did you graduate?".

sigh..... Well, I guess I did just really give myself a case of the Mondays.  Let's shake it off with some shopping.

Pink Castle.  Brenda is having a MOVING SALE!  She is moving her shop out of her home and into a storefront.  To prep for her big move, EVERYTHING in her shop is 15% off (plus free shipping on order over $50).  Use coupon code MOVING15.

She has Lucky Penny FQ bundles in all 3 colorways if you'd like to join me for the Sisters' Ten Modern Block of the Month.

Sew Fresh Fabrics.  Peg still has a HUGE sale going on with 175 fabrics on sale, starting at $3.50/Half yard and Up.  In her new arrivals, she has a large selection of these too-cool-for-school Architextures prints from Carolyn Friedlander.

Sew Me A Song.  Becca is also having a big sale with 250 prints in her sale and clearance sections.  Sounds like everyone is getting ready for spring arrivals!

Fat Quarter Shop.  FQS always has lots of fun stuff going on.  Today I noticed bundles of this springy collection by Eric & Julie Comstock, 2wenty Thr3e for Moda.

I also owe you a winner of the Comma Jelly Roll giveaway, sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop.  Congratulations to #107 Laurel09!  I will send you an email shortly!

Happy Shopping - hope it gets rid of your Mondays! Pin It


  1. Bwahahaha! I recently quoted South Park to my husband. Checked to make sure the line was right and was horrified to find out it was from 15 years ago...when I was in college...and it wasn't even the first season!

  2. Great, now I just went shopping. I've been avoiding new fabric like the plague :). oh, a few yards won't hurt today I guess. Missed you at last month's meeting. Hope you are well!

  3. We didn't even have the internet OR email when I was in college. So stop feeling old. :)

  4. haha! It's probably a good thing that none of us had cell phones or internet (or Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter) in college. I don't know how kids these days get any studying in LOL! MY tween and teen have a hard enough time as it is! When I went to college, an electric typewriter was much more common than a computer. THAT's probably where all of our time went... struggling to type papers on those dang things...

  5. I finished my MBA without owning a computer!! I used the ones in the computer lab and at my boyfriend's office. Only one guy had a laptop and he drove a Porsche which shows how rich you needed to be to have one of them newfangled gadgets....
