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!

19 Hours....

Heather and her sweet family arrived yesterday!
18 hours in the car. WOW.
Before they got here, Mandy and I put together
goodie bags while Katie and Jeff ran errands. We
wanted everything to be perfect, but we all know
"perfect is boring", right?;)

Heather and I were partners in my Polka Dot Swap. This
wreath was part of her package. I wish I could take credit for
designing this, but I got the idea here. Genius.

Look at these smiling faces! Cousins by way of blogger.

Katie and Lindsey are so cute together. Fast friends.

The manly men posing by the Big Green Egg. ;)

Lindsey just had a birthday! Katie had the best time
creating this sign for her. Thanks for the idea, Nancy!

Brownie Trifle and birthday wishes.

Lots of games were played. Scooby Doo, Mario Cart
Wii, etc. Heather and I played Smarty Pants at 2 AM.
Who knew she knew about Sports?? I won two rounds,
but in the end Heather stole the title of Smarty Pants.
Until we meet again- mwa hahaha!

They actually fell asleep!

Michael was a good sport and camped on the floor.

Yes, the really did go to sleep!

Jeff made pancakes "with bugs" for breakfast. The kids
enjoyed the mini chocolate chips! (Love Michael's morning
hair- so cute!)

Crazy straws make everything fun! Oh, and see the table
runner? One of my polka dot goodies from Heather! LOVE it!

It was sticky and HOT. The kids braved the heat and
broke out their polka dot (of course) chalk. There was no
breeze. YUCK.

Mandy and Tyler have the same sense of humor and
had the best time together! Something about Cheerios and
the Lord of the Rings had them cracking up!.:)

Michael, Natalie (and Charles!) fell in love with Ruby.
Heather, you need to get them a Pug.:)

Our Girls' Night Out consisted of a trip to Walgreens and
Hobby Lobby. It was awesome. Heather makes me laugh (so
hard!) and she really "gets" me. We are so much alike and I
love that.

Come back soon, Sister. Or even better- be my neighbor.:)
Miss you.

I love your header pics! I like that you change them every once in a while like that.
