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!

We often talk about how fun it would be if we

My dear friend, Amy, from Life in Pink
Hi Tops, is an absolute treasure. She is an
amazing cook, fabulous seamstress, and the
most wonderful friend. Look what she made
for her husband's birthday!

She is also quite the brave soul. This
"little critter" found it's way into her backyard.
Not sure if she took the picture, though. Oh

Does this count as a fruit?

Tonight I had these. Not the whole box- I stopped
at 2. Of course, the night is young. Pina Colada on a stick.
120 calories.:)

My girls made these. Make some with your
kiddos and your kids will think you are a genius.

Mine did!
Even tweens like them.

Mini chocolate chips are necessary.

Wal Mart chocolate chip cookies- $1. Perfect.

The girls are having such fun with their Silly
Bandz. $1 a pack at Wal Mart. 2 have broken but the
rest are prized possessions. They are meeting new people
through trading and they get compliments on their
"bandz" everywhere they go. From adults- not kids. Bet
they wish they had them years ago.
