TLC

 
 
I always resented CPR and first aid training.
It takes so long and it is so darn yearly!!
Today I was in the store and needed to help
a mom w/ a blue and limp 9 month old. It was so frightening!!
I was able to do and remember all that I needed
to do and pass the tiny off to EMT's.
Everyone please take a class!! You can take a class online
and you can do it for family night. In courage it in your
wards for adults and youth. I just felt so blessed w/
knowledge today! Empower yourselves!!
 

Sometimes it's the little things....

 
The little free things in life!!
Thanks Pier One. Your trash is my treasure!!
Happy Spring!!

Auntie

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
While shopping w/ my darling nephew "E", this happened.
"E" talks to and shouts "hello" to anyone in sight!"
 A kind grandma stopped to talk to little "E". 
She noticed all the toys in our cart, that were
 there to play w/ and not purchase. "My"
 she stated "Looks like your mommy sure loves you!"
 "E's" tiny two year olds face scrunched and he said
"No not mama! Auntie!!" "Oh" the woman stated
and quietly moved on. I love that tiny "E"
 he sure has lots to say and you can just see his tiny mind work full blast!! 
 
"E" also noticed a four wheeler in the back of a truck
and knew at that very moment me needed to
have it and ride it. Stating very loudly "That is Eli's four wheeler!
Eli ride it!!"
 
We also saw a large sign showing yummy chocolate cookies!
Eli then went into a long conversation about
how Daddy loved doughnuts and always eats them.
I asked Eli if daddy gave Eli bites he Eli said "No just daddies!"
 
I love Eli!! His vocabulary is catching up w/ his mind
and makes me laugh!

Urban

 

 
The other day I found myself here. I am not one for retail so
much and I hardly have time to find parking and walk forever.
However sometimes things like that happen.
Urban Outfitters was full of expensive eye candy!
I partook! They have very nice staff too!
 
I could sleep for a week!!
Happy Day!

A tip for a chip!!

 
 
 
 
Someone tipped me off on dumpster diving
at large décor stores. (Ok ok it was Youtube)
I find fun stuff but some times it is a little imperfect.
Imperfect is perfect for me!!
I like things a little dinged up and a little
rough around the edges! Like
the cake plate above. Swoon and FREE!!
It had a few chips in it that looked creamy
and dull. Nothing a little white nail polish can't fix.
Perfect for décor. (Not food safe).
Next time you have a chip...reach for the polish.
 
Happy Spring!!

It's a hard knock life!

 
 
 
Went up to my brother's new house to
 help stain wood trim. (Are you great at staining...he could use help!)
My car died!! He towed me (my biggest fear and rightly so)
 Spent hours in the Auto Zone parking lot
 in the dark w/ head lamps..
.trying to revive my sweet Honda!!
 Oh heavens I am glad today is over!!

*Teaching 12 year olds how to stain. Not fun!
*A pocket dial from my sister and her little. So funny and
makes me giggle even now.
*Got to much sun!!
*The thought of a "true English Breakfast" makes me ill!

Tiny

 
 
*I just finished the book above. The Big Tiny by Dee Williams.
It was super profound. I love stuff! I like tiny things. Life is hard.
I need a flush toilet and a shower. This book reminded me of the book
WILD but was more insightful and life altering and had a lot more meaning
to me! Read it. You won't regret it and you'll love your toilet more!!
 
*Driving home today from an early
morning exercise I thought "I could use more
Forsythia in my life!!"
 
*Most people can't be counted on. SAD!
 
*I hate exercising. I do like to walk though. I also like
the after effect.
 
*My guilty pleasure as of late. Zoe and Alfie. They
are British teens (early 20) who live together
and record their WHOLE LIFE! They get paid to
Vlog...and they wrote books...and they are so funny
and so darn weird. Alfie is darling and he makes me laugh!!
Love them. Weird...yeah!
 
*Job hunting makes me feel sick!! It is hard.
 
*My car is always messy! Not a fan!
 
*The other day I was having fun playing w/ my beastie
Theodore and he turned to me and said. "Can you
poor me some bubbles and then go inside?"
He'd reached his Auntie thresh hold!!
 
 
Happy Spring Chick-a dee's!  Keep thoughts, prayers and
happy vibes coming my way so I can get a big fat posh job!!!

Nose

 
 
 
Today I noticed my nephew had a very runny nose.
I asked him if he was getting sick.
"No" he answered w/ rosy cheeks.
 I asked if his nose was getting sick
  "Yes and it keeps throwing up!"
He stated!
 Love that kid!!

Carly my idol!!

 
 
Once a long long time ago.
I met a like minded woman at her yard sale.
I called my friend to come to partake of the yard sale too and
they too became friends. Her name is Carly. 
She is a BEAUTY. She is a cleaver diva too.
Her design style and sassy pants are
out of this world!
 
Today I dropped by her beautiful home! Swoon.
In her garage I noticed this:
 

 
 
Are you kidding me? I love this. She said it was from Pintrest.
The lady follows through and does pintrest projects too!!
 
Love!!

Boom Clap...

 
 
*I woke up w/ Boom Clap in my head!
*Job interviews are lame.
*Sugar cookie play date? Yes please.
*My two tiny nephews have awful cold.
I clear my throat just thinking of them breathing.
*I hate when the carpet cleaner dies mid clean!!
LAME!!
*Lemon Heads....my addiction as of lately.
* The grass is always greener...I hate that!!
*Warm sun makes me happy!
*If I clean my car...something exciting is going to
happen w/ in 24 hours to make it un clean. So worth it!
 
 
 
Decorated Sugar Cookies

This happened!


 
 
A conversation w/ my almost 3 year old nephew.
 
 
T: Auntie remember you can't take Lincoln home! He
belongs here.
Me: I won't take him home. I just like to pretend he is my baby.
T: Oh pretend? Do you want to pretend this house and
those chickens are yours too?
 
I agreed and we went on happily about our business!

Sunshine!


 
Yesterday I spent the day watching horses eat breakfast,
clomping through hug amounts of mud and looking all
over an empty home (being built) for an echo.
 It was the best time I have had in awhile.
Life through a child's eyes....PRICELESS

Lately

 
Lately my sister and I have a
new hobby! It's finding things
for FREE!
Things are cuter when free...no really!
 
The lantern above is about 3 feet high!
My paper whites are in it right now and
it makes me smile!

 
It's two sisters!
 
Happy Spring!!
 
 

Art

 
 
 
My sister claims she isn't crafty.
I nearly choke when she states such a thing!
This year for Christmas she whipped
up some custom canvas.
Uber impressive!

I like it berry much.

 
 
 
 
 
 
It's no secret that I LOVE the
Dollar Store!
I love me a good deal!
I found these little mixed berries
in the stores w/ fridges and freezers.
One dollar for 12 oz of yummy?
YES PLEASE!
 
What do you LOVE at Dollar Tree!
