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 Feel so Spoiled!

   You are not going to believe this, but I got another fabulous package in the mail today!  My wonderful friend, Robin, sent me this GORGEOUS Halloween book!  She knows how much I love this time of year and especially big, round PUMPKINS!:)  I had never even seen this book before and look what I was missing: 

Aren't those little girls darling!

   Vintage-style decorations- fabulous!

   All I have to say is YUM.

   I would love to do this at my next party.  Don't those drinks look refreshing?  And check out that darling bucket!!

   Love everything in this picture.  Cute buckets, fun candles and don't forget the caramel apples.  I know I won't....

   Robin- Thank you for the wonderful surprise!  You know me so well, my dear friend!:)  Now I'm going to make that hot chocolate I told you about, find a cozy blanket, and enjoy my new book!

Lucky you! I love Halloween magazines too.....all that yummy stuff to make! I want to come make stuff at your house. In fact, I am desperate to make some Halloween ornaments b/c I bought a Halloween tree this year and it is sort of barren looking.......

Wow, nice! Love the cover and the bucket.

I was at Michael's today and as I was checking out, a few magazines caught my eye. Thankfully I had already paid, or the bill would have been about $25.00 more. So pricy, but SOOOO many cute ideas! What a sweet friend!
