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!

Borders Birthday Parties + a Giveaway!

****UPDATE! How could I just pick ONE winner??! I randomly chose THREE instead! YIPPEE!**** The winners are:


Congratulations Ladies! Please e-mail me and let me know if you would like a 4th
of July posie or one of your favorite colors...
toosillysisters@cox.net

Yesterday I found out that Borders hosts birthday parties- for FREE! They provide a hostess for storytime, some games, a room for your festivities and a discount on party supplies (if you so choose). They will even allow you to bring your own refreshments! Just think of the possibilities! Choose a fun theme (ex. pirates), ask them to read the children a pirate book, play a few pirate games, have a pirate craft and then a pirate cake! YOU will not have to clean up! That's the BEST part!:)

I am having such fun making these posies! Would YOU like one? If so, please leave a comment and I will choose a winner tomorrow!:)

We will have to have one of Noelle's parties here! That is sooo cool!

I love your posies Mrs. Creative!

I just wanted to pop over since I got a spare "minute" and say "HI!"
I think Ronnie has found "Mr. Right" -I'm sad that he is getting shipped off to Iraq on her birthday (Aug. 1st) for his second tour. :(
He is a wonderful wonderful young man. Our whole family likes him. :) He already feels like part of our family!

I'm so happy to see you are staying busy and love your new creations Lori! ADORABLE!!!!

Love and miss you,
Robin~♥
