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!

Melrose Place, Mermaids and More

We watched this show every week. Loved it. Are you going to watch the new "Melrose Place"? (Sidney was our favorite and she's back! We did love to hate Kimberly but now she is on Desperate Housewives.) My all time favorite was "Homefront", though. Did anyone else love it as much as I did? It was a World War II soap opera type show. (My sweet husband liked it, too, so it wasn't too sappy- lol!) Anyone?


I received the sweetest package from my dear friend, Jill, the other day! Be still my heart! A gorgeous book on charm bracelets! Such eye candy and extremely inspiring. Thank you so much, Jill! :)

I cannot get over her lovely wrapping... Just beautiful...

Yes, I know it is September and I CANNOT wait for Fall, but who could say No! to these little mermaids??! Not me!:) Gotta love Gymboree.

This is the matching denim skort! The price was definitely right and did you know that Gymboree has a new Rewards Club? Sign up is FREE and you earn points for free merchandise...

The girls both got a pair of these cozy fellas tonight! You can find them at Stride Rite (up to size 5- for younger girlies) and JC Penney (starting at a size 6- for older girls). I got some for myself last year at TJ Maxx and they were soooo cozy. Wonder if they will have them again this year... (Note- If you get some be sure to spray them with Scotchguard before you wear them.)

I wanted to thank you so much for your sweet comments on my blog. You all are so dear to me- more than you could ever know.

Love the owls!!
My Anna used to have some pink boots like those--she wore them with everything, and I do mean everything! The mermaids are too cute.
How sweet of Jill to send you such a terrific book!

April said...

Love your new look...so cute! I was never a "Melrose Place" fan...not sure why. One new show I'm going to LOVE is "Glee". Did you happen to catch it last night?

I can hardly wait for fall's arrival, either! So ready for those cooler temps to start moving in!

I watched Melrose Place, but likes 90210 better. I cannot bring myself to watch the new 90210, so I doubt I will watch the new Melrose Place.

Hi Lori,

Thanks for leaving such a nice comment on my blog. I'm glad to have found yours!

I'm going to have to stop in at JC Penney to find a pair of those boots for my 7 year old! So cute and perfect for cold Minnesota winters.

I never missed Melrose Place and I do plan on taking a peek at the new one. I never saw Homefront.

That looks like a fabulous book...enjoy it!

Oh we used to LOVE Gymboree and had tons of it. I will be getting rid of the Fall Gymboree in a big consignment sale in October. Sadly, Lexi won't wear it anymore...boohoo. Cute boots!

Hope you have a fabulous day!♥

Candice said...

Totally random, but I love the owls! :)

I plan to give Melrose Place a shot, I tried the new 90210 and I lost interest... I LOVED the original MP so I am looking forward to it...
Now onto the BRACELET... Be still my heart, I LOVE it!

Tristan said...

And..I had no idea they were getting a new melrose place..I've never watched it though..

Yarni Gras! said...

too funny! My hubby and I used to LOVE Melrose Place! So....who will be back? I can't WAIT!
Curly Girl and I both have cozy booties but hers are too snug now so I must go find her some more. Thanks for the tip on where to look!

Hi Lori
I love the charm bracelet book your friend sent you. It looks full of inspiration and great ideas. The cozy boots look comfy. We need those here today, it's really cold and our heating just came on! I do not recall Melrose Place but we did have 90210 over here years ago. Guess what? Harpers Island starts on Sunday evening. Can't wait!

I love the boots you got for the girls... I was actually looking for a pair for myself this year.
Ronnie got a pair last year and I kept wanting to steal them! I don't feel bad though, she is always wearing my things!

Hey...Survivor starts this month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm just a "little" excited.

Angie said...

Ok..I love the little owls on your background...how sweet! The little boots are sooo cute...I tried to get some similiar for my daughter but she is anti-boot. Maybe she will change her mind once we get some snow...lol. Ohhhh...and can a book cover be delicious because that one sure is! MMMMMM.

Sherri said...

Lori, that book looks fabulous!! I can't wait to see what you create from it! The girls boots are really cute!

Connie said...

I'm sorry to say I have never seen Melrose Place but I do like your mermaids!
I'm getting in the mood for Fall since your Boo blocks arrived! They are adorable and I love the glitter on them! I was so excited to open them today! You are a crafty lady! Thanks!

You know, when I was in the thick of things raising the kiddos, it seems like I missed out on a whole decade of stuff. I guess I was in La-La land keeping up with my Fantastic Four. : )

Elise said...

That book looks gorgeous!! I personally love Glee...have y'all watched it?? Great music and its funny!!
Love the boots, too!! Oh, and your new look is sooo cute!!

Jodi said...

We used to watch Melrose and 90210 when my husband and I first started dating, lol.. I remember Homefront. I like that show too, but it didn't stay on for very long, did it? I don't think I'll be watching the new Melrose though, I don't watch as much TV anymore as I used to!

What wonderful gifts! I am also looking forward to fall!

Jerelene said...

What a lovely gift! And the wrapping was heavenly..:)
I am glad that I'm your friend!! And I'm glad you're mine :)
I love those boots..they look cozy and comfy...
And I love the new picture..I LOVE fall....:)
Love, Jerelene

My husband and I loved Homefront!

Love the Mermaids! I missed them. I think Sydney has physically out grown Gymboree.

I am planning a Mermaid party for her next b-day!
