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!

We're Home!

   Happy New Year!  Oh my goodness, I have missed all of you!  We just got back from Florida and after unpacking, doing some laundry and having a nice, long, hot shower I am ready for show and tell.:)
   Yesterday was my Sweetie's birthday!  We slept in (heavenly), then Jeff was off racing cars with my Dad, later we went to see "Four Christmases" (very good) while my parents took the girls to see "Bedtime Stories" (they loved it).  We ended the evening with dinner at The Cheesecake Factory (Have you ever had the Factory Salad??) and then broke open a dinosaur pinata (you're never too old!) at my parents followed by the most incredible cake from Coldstone Creamery (Peanut Butter Playground).  A fabulous day like that makes getting older just a little bit easier.:)

   It tastes even BETTER than it looks.

   Such a cute birthday boy.:)

   New Year's pictures after the birthday party...

   This year I am going to attempt to post more pictures of me.  I am NOT photogenic, but who cares?
