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!

Happy 101

I received the sweetest award today from Nancy! Isn't it darling? Cupcakes with sprinkles! Could it get any better??? Love it! I adore Nancy, too! She is SUPER creative, cute as a button and has fabulous shoes.:) Not only that, she is a fabulous Mom (with cutie patootie girlies!) and REAL. She likes "Ice, Ice Baby" and not many are willing to share that. But you know what? I like it, too! I also love disco (Donna Summer!) and Ricky Martin! Somewhere deep down inside me I was meant to be a dancer, ladies.
Now, I need to tell you some things that make me happy. giggle. smile. feel joy....

My girlies. What would life be like without them? I never want to know. Did you know that before I got married I never wanted children? I was so afraid that I would not survive labor, as my Mom had a terrible time with me. It was worth it- every second. They are my world.:)

Whose Line is it Anyway? This show is so incredibly hilarious! I never fail to have tears in my eyes over the comedy that these people create. How do they do it??!

The Karate Kid. Never wanted to see it. THE dumbest name. Oh, but what a story! I know the lines by heart- no joke. Daniel Laruso and Mr. Miyagi are true heroes in my book.

My husband. He cracks himself up (and me too). Adore him. He wants to see New Moon with me, too.:)

Fabric. Someday I will sew. I want so badly to join Julie in her Scarf Along. Maybe I will. Yes, fabrics make me happy!:)

The ocean. We used to live near one and never went. I thought we would always be close to it. How the sea calls to me...

Buttons. What a love affair I have with them!

A cozy fire on a snowy day. What a luxury! A snuggly quilt, good book and a mug of hot chocolate and I am set...

Books. I am addicted.

The movies. Especially matinees. Sneaking away while the rest of the world works is the BEST.:)

Now, I would like to pass this award on to some friends that make me truly happy!

Heather- Six Scavos
Jes- Kadyhope
Tristan- Tristan Time

Thank you so much, Nancy, for this wonderful award! Enjoy, dear friends! Thank you for making my days just a little bit more creative, happy and full of joy!:)

I think you should start sewing...Scarfs are super easy.

Okay, off to bed for me...I work tomorrow. There is some serious candy needing to be sold.

Hi Lori
Thank you so much for the award. I can honestly say that you and your family do make us truly happy too. We are so thrilled to have you as part of our family and our lives.
I enjoyed how you shared the things you love with the great pictures. The picture of Amanda and Katie is gorgeous. As you know I love the ocean too. Maybe one day we will get to go together? Buttons always remind me of you and I hope one day you get to sew. I am sure you would be great at it.

Thank you sweetie!

Nancy said...

I love your list. You just make me smile, girl! Seriously smile. "Whose Line is it anyways.." Hello! One of the best shows ever. So funny. I went to a taping about 9 years ago. So. so. fun. They actually picked my sister to come up and do the three headed opera star with her in the center. Priceless. Hope you make the pie, by the way. You can so do it! I am your cheerleader. :) xoxo

Hi Lori! What a great post! I loved hearing what you like and don't. It always amazes me that things we think we won't like, we end up liking. :) I never had the desire to travel...as I get older it calls to me. Thank you for sharing. I have missed so many of my blog friends being that we have all this going on here...glad you stopped by and brought a smile to my face!

Hugs to you,
~Victoria~

Tell Jeff that Tim took the pictures. He helped me get up there and was just cracking up at me! I had to laugh, I was seriously having a hard time letting go of the ladder and taking that big step up YET I didn't have an ounce of fear when I jumped out of an airplane at 10,000 feet. Tim was right behind me with my bottom in his face trying to tell me what foot to move and when! I'm sure it was a sight to see! Egad. He sure got a big kick out of me-I'm such a dork. He knows better not to take the ladder away... The wrath of Robin is not a pretty deal! Plus he likes staying on my good side for the extra added benefits IF you know what I mean and I think you do! Ha Ha!
I have been working hard to come up with 25 different things to show for the 25 days of Christmas. I have a bunch of ideas written down and it's been alot of fun so far!
I cannot wait to see your post tonight!!!!!!

Love,
Me~♥
P.S. I JUST beat your Bejeweled score little sis! tee hee!
