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!

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

I have always had a crush on Linus.  I remember wanting so badly for the Great Pumpkin to show up so everyone would believe him.  Plus, he was always such a good friend to Charlie Brown.  Remember his monologue on the Peanuts Christmas show?  What a guy.:-)  I wanted to show you what is happening in our garden right now!  Gorgeous white Lumina pumpkins, compliments of Martha Stewart.:-)  They are absolutely beautiful- and huge!  Does anyone know when I should pick them??  Martha????  I was so hoping they would arrive in the Fall but these fellows just couldn't wait.  Any tips on how to make them last?  Perhaps I will have to have my Pumpkin Party in August...

**Oh, and don't forget to sign up for my 300th post giveaway!  We will do the drawing for 2 winners on Tuesday (tomorrow) night at 7:00.**
***Also, my Button Bracelet promotion ends this Wednesday evening.  Buy 2 or more button bracelets and they are only $13 each + postage!***

Who didn't have a crush on Linus???I think it was that cute little blankie of his!
WOWIE KAZOWIE! Your white pumpkins are doing really well. I have no idea when you should pick them but I'm thinking a cool dark place would probably keep them (NOT 100% sure though) ~ What are you going to do with your white pumpkins? I saw a couple of things in Martha's magazine last year that Im pretty sure I kept that had cute ideas for pumpkins.
Hope you are having a great day!

Oh I am so envious those are so beautiful. I LOVE white pumpkins and they are so hard to come by here. We travel an hour north to get them and they are not as pretty as those!!! Thanks for sharing.
