Bird, Vinyl, Mom's blog...

Ok, so had to change my background again this weekend for the lovely FOURTH OF JULY weekend! The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. I am not really sure way, but I LOVE it! I love the decorations, food, fireworks and everything else! I love that everyone waves our country's flag! I just really like the holiday!

On with my title, what I was meaning to write about on this post. So Saturday I was driving home from work, jut listening to the radio and doing the usual as I drive home...when all of a sudden I hear this big "THUNK" on the car. Then another one right after it, this time I see a bird hitting my windshield. I look in my rear view mirror and see the bird "fly" (not flying with it's wings) until it hits the ground and kind of rolls. It was definitely dead. I was in shock and kind of sad. There are always birds flying in front of us when we drive home, but they usually end up flying up or out of the way so we don't hit them. This is the first time I have hit a bird while it was flying!!! Kind of crazy, huh!

Next on our weekend was what lovely Netflix brought us... "PS I Love you." I have had mixed feelings about this movie. The ending was ok, but the rest of the movie was just kind of depressing. It had heard it was really good and I just didn't think it was unless you want to watch a movie where you are going to cry the whole time! That's ok though, I rented it through Netflix so I don't feel like I have just wasted $5 on renting a bad movie!

We also finally got my vinyl in the mail! (I LOVE getting mail! Not sure why, but I love it!) I ordered it on ebay about a week ago and I have been needing it to finish my dad's Father's Day present! I know, I am bad! It's been two weeks and I haven't given him anything other than a card! Oh well, I do what I can, right? So, I am wanting to do a little vinyl lettering and sell some on ebay. This is going to hopefully be our little side "business" to help us get through podiatry school! I'm pretty excited about it! I have just about everything I need to start, I just need to do it...back to my dad. His is my first one that I have finished! Here is a picture of it! (Nola if you wouldn't mind, try not to let him see this until I can give it to him!)

I think for the most part, it turned out pretty good. The only thing I wish I would have done differently is it the maroon lettering in more of a red, so it would pop out more. Not sure if you guys can read it, so it say "Dill Family...As for me and My House We Will Serve the Lord...Joshua 24:12." What do you guys think? Would you guys buy one of these with your name on it??? Just curious...I am going to hopefully do many different saying. So if you don't like this one, give me some ideas what you might like and would buy on ebay!

Yesterday I helped my mom start her own blog! I am soo excited for her! She hasn't posted anything yet, but hopefully she will soon! I am way excited about that! That pretty much sums up our weekend...what did you do?


  1. So do you have a vinyl machine? My best friend bought one for about $500 (an investment for sure) and while they lived in California where no one has one, she made really good money! Cute sign though, I love vinyl! Crazy about the bird, isn't it funny how little things like that can shake you up? I love the 4th as well, hope you and Josh have a fun little roadtrip this week, tell him good luck on the interviews!

  2. awh, those signs are a splendid idea, my friend brooke sells signs...she's in stillwater 1st ward you might know her...anyway, I'm super duper excited to see your mom's blog, I haven't talked to her in forever.

  3. oh my gosh!!! Those are so stinkin cute!!!! I love it! Dina what have i told you about killing animals.. its just not right!

  4. Woohoo for vinyl! Do you have a Cricut machine? I really want the "Expressions" machine, but they are SO expensive!

    By the way, I saw the movie Juno- LOVED IT!
