Truth Thursdays: Paint the Van

  • I've had the urge to paint our van since seeing the Glittergirl van in Violette's book Journal Bliss.  Serious.  Big urge.  Husband's not saying no...
  • I *blush* went to see Breaking Dawn with my sister. OKAY, I SAID it. She made me.  Not really.  Sort of...but no.
  • I also want to see the Hunger Games (yes, I'm an adult).
  • As of this moment, I still don't have my Christmas tree up.  Don't send Scrooge;I'll do it soon.
  • My son's been wishing for snow and I've been de-wishing his wish.  The forecast says snow is possible this week.  Guess wishing is more powerful than de-wishing.

  1. I can see you starting the trend, painted vans! The one here seriously has that 60s vibe going on ... Fun :)

  3. First. Would LOVE to paint my mini-van! Hearts, Peace Signs ~ The Works! Husband would object. So would the kids. If I could do it an an afternoon while they're away, I would.

    Second. Yes, I read the books. Yes, I loved the movies (well, the first one had to grow on me). Yes, I love the Twilight series! Written for young readers, the first books were most definitely, intended for an audience of tweens. That said, this series began the much desired dialogue, I desperately wanted and hope to continue, with my girl! For that reason (and that reason alone ~ I lie) I am completely Team Edward. I prefer sparkles (even if it is the stereo-type) over dog breath any day.

    Third. I am wishing to de-wish your de-wishing. Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow.

  4. Dewishing the wish. That's funny. I'm ready for snow. My plan is to get a tree this weekend and put it up.

  5. I bet your van would look AMAZING if you painted it! Ooooo, I can just see it in my head . . . And I want to see Hunger Games, too. :-)

  6. My daughter and I are going to see Breaking Dawn Friday night. I used to be a big critic of it until I actually watched the movies. Ha! Never say never, I guess. :-)

  7. The world needs more color! Do it! You can always paint it back if it really doesn't work.

    Thanks for the "pants" comment -- it was SO NICE hearing from you.

    While it probably is okay to go pant-less, I did have my underwear on inside out THREE TIMES last term. Yikes?

  9. I would like to paint my van also. I am a big fan of Violette! My husband thinks this is the place to put his foot down. I guess I can't complain, he usually goes along with anything else I jump head first into!!!
