Boy I wish I could go back to those potty training days, now that this is available!


*I couldn't find a website or any evidence that this is a real product

Flashback Friday

I just found this & since I had out some old pic of myself I thought I'd play along.
This was 1972, so I was 5. I love how the mouth of the pumpkin kind of looks like a map of the United States! We've got the always cool avacado green stove topped off by some cool mushroom candles. Man, the 70's was ugly, but I was dang cute!

For more Flashback Friday fun check out Tara over at Too Much Information.

Just Some Smiles Today

Okay, I found this over at The Fun House, run by Jennifer. Her life seems crazy, but in the really good way! I have copied her verbatim, because I'm short on time & heck, why re-invent a already perfectly worded wheel, ya know?

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!

2. What I create will be just for you.

3. It'll be done this year. {might be a little while}

4. You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry or maybe even some creation I haven't even invented yet. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!

5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch?

**Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me!

* * *Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!* * *

**I am amending this a little to say that you don't have to repost this on your blog if you don't want to! If you're in the Top 5 I will still make you something!

*Also remember to include an e-mail address if I can't get an e-mail to you through a blog

Secondly this kid made me laugh so hard I almost peed my pants. I think the second half is even better than the first. His expressions & his level of earnestness just kill me. If he can't make you smile today... Well if he can't make you smile today let me know & I'll see what else I can come up with!

I'm Back!

I know all of you are sooo thrilled. I have had a crazy busy 2 weeks.

Chris had some time off, so we went to a ski resort here in Michigan. Since I've never skiied we signed me up for a lesson. I was trying really hard, but just not getting it. On my last run down the bunny hill I lost control (well that implies that I once had control, but anyway) I totally crashed into this thing called a magic carpet. It's like an escalator in the snow that takes you up the bunny hill.

The tips of my ski's hit the carpet of doom & I shot over it, landing clean on the other side. I am in the yellow & black coat.


It's actually amazing that I just ended up a little bruised. I was this close to landing on one of my ski poles & impaling myself. This concluded my skiing adventure, but Chris had fun skiing & we had a nice, if too short, get away.

We arrived home, did laundry, I did a weeks worth of school work & then I took off with JD for a mom-son road trip to see a friend of his in NC. (More on that in another post.)

I've missed my bloggy friends & my computer access!

Well Butter My Butt, & Call Me A Biscuit

Biscuit Dough Pictures, Images and Photos

Heavens to Betsy! I took a look at myself while I was getting out of the shower this morning & it was not pretty.

Biscuit body looks like biscuit dough. White, lumpy & pasty. The shapes not quite defined, kinda blobby. Yikes!

I know we women are supposed to strive towards self love, but honestly when most of us catch a long look at ourselves nekkid it is not a joyous occasion.

Sorry if that mental image ruined your lunch. I think mine will be a Nutrisystem meal & some fruit...

Please Send Your Prayers

Cynthiaa is a wonderful blogger that I follow. Her blog is Confessions of a Yummy Mummy.

She has been just beside herself waiting for her baby, Aiden to be born. At a routine appt. today she found that Aiden had died in-utero and she had to deliver via c-section.

The community of bloggers I have found has been a wonderful one. Please pray for Cynthiaa & maybe stop by her blog & leave some love.
