About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

"I'm Leavin' on a Jet Plane"

   That's right, my friends, I am headed off to my desert island getaway!  Julie, from Joy's Hope, sent me the most wonderful package today full of goodies!  Wrapped in pink and green(my favorite colors!!), they were almost too pretty to open.  I did say, almost....  She sent me the cutest pink and white tote bag- and one for each of my girls!  Don't you LOVE the cute "M" and "K" she used to personalize them??!  Inside the pockets were yummy treats, nail polish and Burt's Bees lip balm!  She even made headbands for my girls.:-)    She also sent me the most darling journal EVER!  It is quilted with Julie's favorite fabrics and accented with sweet buttons- love it!  I can't wait to start the book she sent me for whiling away my time on the island.  The Pact by Jodi Picoult is certain to be wonderful as she is an excellent author.  And check out the darling bookmark Julie made!  On to the yummiest popcorn I have ever eaten!  The girls and I watched "The Secret Garden" this afternoon, so, of course, we had to try some.:-) Orville Redenbacher salt and cracked pepper flavor- gourmet!  I had never even heard of it before, but now I am addicted!  To top it all off she sent me the newest issue of Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion magazine.  How did she know that I love this magazine??  Julie, you are amazing!  Thanks so much for all the treats!
