Little Help!!

My nephews are DARLING!!
They both have quirks that make me
giggle all day long!!!
Tiny Theodore is a clean freak!
He was looking for "crumbs" and trying is best to
get every little one. The ear protection? Because he has long
vacuum sessions!!  If Mr. Dyson could fit
into his crib I am sure he'd nap w/ him.

*Today is beautiful!
*My head cold still lingers a tiny bit!
*When gathering w/ long lost friends awkward things
are said and asked!
*This fall a new little bundle will join 2 of my sisters little families.
I wanted pink but one is blue. I will love him no matter.
*A little boy approached me the other day. He only spoke Spanish,
I only English. He told me all about his favorite train Thomas and
all about Choo Choo Trains. I didn't understand another single word
but it was the best conversation of the day!
*A neighbor will turn 101 tomorrow. What stories she can tell!
Happy Birthday Merle!
*My mom even brings home the butter in her take home box. (Weird)
*I love a good book.
*I taught a crafty class the other night. I learned I don't like teaching classes
when I am not thrilled to bits by the subject or medium.
*Don't ever assume anything about me.
*I need an epi pen stat!
*I love the name Hollis!
*My favorite (read cheap) local car wash is closing! Frownie face!
*Is an apology really and apology when one demands it?
Happy Spring!!

My nephew always wants to know what I am drinking.
2 weeks ago I told him I was drinking water and "ice ice baby!"
Today after two weeks he asked me what I was drinking.
I let him know it was water again. Then he said  quietly "Ice Ice baby"
That kid is so sweet and so cleaver!!
I am in Love!

Pottery Barn CHEAP!

I love Pottery Barn and I like it cheap!
Today I happened here!! It didn't disappoint!
Well only that it is closing!! But the nice man said they
hoped to open one in Layton. We'll see!
This place is a bit off the beaten path..
3505 West 3500 South
West Valley City, Utah 84120
                                                             Phone: 801-968-1872
Call before you go! The man
said he wasn't 100% when they'd close
for sure. I am guessing as long as the stuff lasts.

This place isn't for the faint of heart. Lots of digging.
Lots of broken stuff and pieces. Some weird monograms.
Lots of guessing at prices! But oh what fun!!
Happy Spring!!


At an upcoming event I am teaching
a class on making this banner!!
It will be fun and free so I'll keep ya posted!!

It has been so dark and gray for to long. The sun is shining bright today...
and I relish the light and the quiet cool heat. Swoon!!
*I spray painted my shoe by mistake the other day. LAME!
*Taking off hot pink nail pint left my finger tips day glow!
*I love that Theodore says "OH MY" when something  is over whelming
awesome or crazy bad.
*I walked in Theodore's pitch black room the other
day to get him from a nap. He couldn't see me but kept asking "Who is this?"
It was not the voice that most often gets him from his crib!
* I went to another ward this week. So many things struck me as funny:
-Most of the boys wore bow ties.
-I saw a boy w/ a crochet tie.
-I sat near a burly man and mid meeting he pulled out the
most feminine fan that was Lacy and lovely and
used it the whole meeting.
-Every ward has the exact same people. They just look different and
have different names.
* I happened on this Anne Of Green Gables quote page today.
Full of a treasure trove. HERE.
*Boring meetings do me in!!
*I was cutting a tag off a shirt and cut the shirt. SO LAME!
*Do you know Ellie? I just met her on Facebook and Youtube!
You can meet her HERE!!
*I grabbed a box of bulbs today to plant
and they were already sprouting!!
*I am always please to see all my favorite tines in one place!!
*Theodore most often has something in his hand.
He just likes to hold stuff. A measuring spoon, a
paint brush or a fork.
*Theodore comes from Evans stalk and will
most often let you know if things are "MESSY!"
Grandpa Evans would be proud!
Happy Spring!!
