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!

Oh Happy Day

I had the nicest surprise the other day. My dear friend, Michelle, brought me flowers! She totally made my day. (She has also read The Help, so stop by her blog if you'd like to leave a comment. She wonders which character are you like? I am curious, too! Robin??)

Her mystery was The Secret in the Old Lace and look at the fabulous lace apron she made for me!

Yes, that is a backpack with all sorts of goodies inside of it! Booklight, frame, M&M's...

Oh.My.Goodness-Such cute pictures of the girls!!!!!

You really scored "once again" on your Nancy Drew swap! Your partner was so creative!

Okay, what "The Help" character am I most like? Wow, I'd have to say I could most relate to Aibileen and I have a little Skeeter in me too!
By the way, I downloaded the Kindle App on my laptop and ipod so I can read books on the run-Love it! I really really really want the ipad now! :)

Love you,
Me

Hi Lori!
Wow! Just look at all those fabulous goodies you ended up with...you hit the lotto, for sure! :) What a sweet friend you have for bringing you such gorgeous flowers. Nothing like a little kindness to brighten your day! The pictures of the girlies are too cute. Why do they have to grow up???
