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!

13 and Counting....

There is a teenager at my house now.

I don't know how this happened.
(Darling Gandalf plushie from Heather.)

13 years old! I'm still stuck at 16. My Mom is 30.
Someone pressed the fast forward button.

My sweet Amanda. You will always be my Mandy Moo.
She had her first massage today. A whole hour.
She loved it.
I'm still too scared to "share" myself with a stranger.

Then, she had a manicure done. Deep purple and blue.
It looks amazing on her.
Think blue would work for me? My toes need some

Mandy and Katie had pedicures together.:)

My precious sweetheart. You are growing too fast. You are kind, loving, and caring. You make me laugh like no one else can! I love that you enjoy a good book and a great movie. Nothing scares you. You are always up for an adventure.
You rock, even when you ask me to call you Yuki.:)
Happiest birthday to you.

Loved seeing the pictures of Amanda enjoying her birthday. The spa day looked so much fun. Deep purple and blue is an excellent choice of colors. Her nails must look great. Love the Gandalf plushie too.
