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!

Don't forget to smile!:)

Cinderella auditions were today.
I don't get up early for just anyone.

            These two nuts want to be cast as the mean 

We shall see...

This reminds me of a story.  Years and years ago when I was in high school I auditioned for the drill team.  I wanted it *so* badly and practiced every day with my boombox (dating myself here) in the backyard.  The routine was to "Footloose" and it was awesome.  I knew every step, every move, every second of it.  BUT, when it was my turn to perform I focused so hard on the steps that I forgot to smile.:(  Later, a girl who shall remain nameless (Sonia) got up to dance and messed the routine up royally.  It was pitiful!  She had missed practices and I think she thought the whole thing was a joke.  BUT, she *SMILED - A LOT*.  When the results were in, she was invited to be on the team and I, sadly, was not.  

The lesson here is not to focus so much on the steps of life that you forget to smile, dear friends.:)

Cute! The stepsisters have the best role. Is it a ballet or a play?
