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!

Sensational Swaps!

   The girls and I have been receiving the most lovely packages in the mail!  Katie's swap partner, Isabella, sent her some glittery treasures from the Kid's Summer Swap.  Take a look!

   Gorgeous sparkly crown and door sign with Katie's initial on it!

   Littlest Pet Shop school supplies, Bratz Baby Dolls, sweet puppy journal, and Katie's new favorite game "Peanut Butter and Jelly"....

   Isabella's Mom, the lovely Genevieve, also sent me a hostess gift!  Inside was beautiful lace, vintage millinery, "Wish" tickets, and the yummiest smelling vanilla bath gel from Victoria's Secret!  Thanks so much, Isabella and Genevieve!

   Then look what arrived next!  Kitty, who is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet, sent me the MOST magical and thoughtful magic wand!  It absolutely took my breath away!  On it were wishes for "Health", "Content" and "Peace".:-)  The loveliest touch.

   She also included wands for my girls!  Mandy and Katie were thrilled!  I was so touched by her kindness...  Thank you so much, Kitty!

What a blast! I am so excited to send my swap partner stuff in the next little bit. What fun to participate in these swaps. I am sure it feels just like christmas morning when a package comes in the mail.

Hi there
Just found your super blog. The Kid's Summer Swap sounds to have been fun. Those gifts you all received were lovely. My daughter would have loved to have taken part. We are new to blogging and from England.

Wow, I bet Katie feels like a princess! How beautiful! I love your wands. I haven't even started mine yet, I'm kind of at a loss on what I want to do.

Have fun with all your goodies!

Beautiful! I love the magic wands. It amazes me how creative people are. Oh - and - that picture at the top of the blog is priceless - did the pumpkin stink? Or was it just the feel of it?

Beth- I think it was a combination of the feel and the smell! This picture still makes me laugh a year later! Lori
