Twitter...huh?

I am a little confused about Twitter. Maybe I am too old or out of it to get it, but I just don't. I am actually on twitter, but don't actually know how to use it on my phone, which is how you are supposed to do it. I do it online.
It is really kind of silly. It asks you "What are you doing?" and you type in what you are doing now. A lot of people type in their website address and use it for advertisement, and I have done that several times. But really, it is weird.
The funny thing is, supposedly all of the stars are doing it. You can "follow" Brittany Spears if you want to, but is that really her? And my daughter is in college. She should be really up to date on all of this kind of stuff, but she doesn't even know what it is.
Oh well. Follow me on twitter and I will follow you. Maybe we can figure it out together.

Confessions of a Shopaholic...

I went to see "Confessions of a Shopaholic" yesterday. Stars Isla Fisher, Hugh Dancy and Krysten Ritter. I have read several of the Shopohalic Series books by Sophie Kinsella. They are hilarious and sweet. I read the first book while on vacation in Cabo and could hardly put it down to drink a margarita. The book centers around Rebecca Bloomwood who is the most creative liar I have ever heard of. She can justify all of the shoes, bath salts, purses (you name it), so anyone would be convinced.

But the movie missed much of the book. The book takes place in England, so the movie misses the whole charm of the english countryside where her parents live. She also writes these hilarious letters to the credit card companies as to why she can't pay her bill and the letters back to her cracked me up.

Cute, and I enjoyed myself, but I wouldn't take a guy to this. They would not get it at all. Not as good as the Devil Wears Prada, but still cute.
Probably 3 out of 5 stars

My Etsy Shop...


I make jewelry.
I sell what I make at our local farmer's markets and a cute little boutique called "Daisy".
Now, I have a storefront on etsy.com
Give it a whirl.

Self Promotion or...

I decided that it was time for me to start blogging. I am doing it to promote my etsy site (www.sherrigallagher.etsy.com), but after I thought about it, I decided it would be more fun to brag about my kids and talk about the important things in my life. Things like I just got back from seeing my daughter sing in her sophomore recital in college. She sang 3 songs in spanish, 1 in italian & 1 in english. It was so beautiful that I couldn't speak afterwards. Ever feel like that about your kids?
