The real Macoy!

The other day white thrifting. I noticed a LARGE,LOVELY and surely and expensive McCoy planter in someones cart! I was sure she got it out of the collectibles area and was about to pay way to much for it! I asked her if I could look at was HUGE, HEAVY and not a chip in sight. I looked at the bottom and the price said THREE DOLLARS! We both looked at each other and said aloud! Thank Goodness for "dumb" pricers!! I was happy she went home w/ such a prize and I'm sure she make MILLIONS on it. ( Or east 100 bucks!)

I have something to say!

Some days ya just need "Ants on a Log!"

I love a little lemonade! I saw this at the store and thought I'd try it! I am a SUCKER for any thing 100% natural!! Well it has a killer after taste and is yucky!! Consider yourself warned!

I got my down duvet from CSN and it was Divine and Wonderful and I felt like a cooked sausage! It was SOOOOOO HOT!! Not something I could talk myself into! So sad! I shipped it back (It cost a ton) and here's to hope'n the second try is a keeper!!

Today while picking up my darling girls (group home) from Special Olympic bowling a man approached me because he didn't agree w/ the way I parked! He was really rude and said very mean things and told me he was going to "Call the COPS" on ME!! I honestly didn't know people said that after they were out of 3rd grade! Mean fella! I almost called him a JACK RABBIT..but refrained.

Spring in a pot!

Who doesn't like a tiny bit of spring in the middle of the winter?

Who knew paper whites stunk something crazy?

I mean really really stinkie!

I recovered my 50 cent daily calendar..Aweee so much better!

Who Knew?

I have TMJ something crazy fierce!! Sometimes it is better then others...right now...not so good!! This morning it was dark and gray and my jaw was killing me. I remembered the facial my darling friends had given me for my birthday...I went and took advantage of the offering. Ta Da my TMJ feels so much better!! Who knew! Next week..on the the hot stone facial!

Lincoln Stink'n!

I have noticed a slight theme in my childhood places of education...they have all but 2 been torn down. So sad! I took these photos this morning. As I stood there as the walls fell I thought about how many happy memories and how much knowledge was had with in these walls. It wasn't all brick and mortar it is a lot of memories and lots of love that held these walls up!

 Notice this fire excape? As you went down these stairs quickly in the winter you'd wonder if they were really going to save your life or TAKE it!!

 It just seems so darn wasteful!! These bricks could make an AWESOME fire pit!!

Muffin Top!!

'Twas the Month After
 Christmas &;
I Ate Too Much!

'Twas the month after Christmas, and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste
At the holiday parties had gone to my waist.

When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).
I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,

The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."

As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt.
I said to myself, as I only can
"You can't spend a winter disguised as a man!"

So--away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip
Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
Till all the additional ounces have vanished.

I won't have a cookie--not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.

I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore,
But isn't that what January is for?
Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!

"My" Phrase!

Remember how I decided to have a phrase of the year? A scripture...really. Well I always make something visual to help me remember. I made this little number last night. Everything was thrifted..I love that!

 Can I just say YUMMERS!!

Today is a BEAUTIFUL sunny day but "baby it's cold outside"! I was talking to one of the sweet girls from the group home where I work and said "I can't's almost SPRING!" She said "I thought it was the middle of winter". I assured her I was just thinking very positive! Darn It!!

Because it is so cold I have been dreaming about my very fluffy and very new down duvet from CSN! Oh it can't come soon enough! I love CNS they have everything from cute mailboxes and darling Modern Bedding.

One to SKIP!!

Who's on the program?

Each week at church as you walk in they hand you a "program". The program is a page of paper folded in half w/ a picture and quote on the front, inside is an outline of the meeting. My darling 3 year old "crush" Lawson was sitting behind me w/ his family. I heard him quietly ask what this paper was. It was stated that it told who was speaking in the meeting. Lawson looked down at the picture on the program and was so excited to see that Jesus was speaking! His mom then said that that was only decoration and Jesus would not be speaking that Sunday because he was busy w/ another assignment. Bummer!!

Bucket Fulla Thoughts!

-Waking up early is not fun!
-Sometimes I wish I was Tongan!
-I hate the mall.
-I saw someone hop into IHOP today!
-I hate IHOP
-Long naps are a blessing.
-When clothes don't fit after the Christmas holidays it makes one think....a lot!
-I am not good at crochet! I wish I was though!
-Bitter cold is BITTER!
-I get SMELL OVER LOAD at Bath and Body works after about 5 minutes and often leave w/ nothing!


I was able to attend the baptism of a sweet 8 year old friend today. A baptism is like spring. A happy showing of new life! Fresh, Clean and New!

"Baptism is a sign to God" , to angels, and to heaven that we do the will of God. -Joseph Smith

Hooked with LOVE!!

Who knew a hamburger hook rug would be one of the best gifts this vegetarian would get? One of the sweet girls who live at the group home where I work lovingly worked on this rug for weeks! After she was finished she painstakingly wrapped and stuck a bow on the lovely package.
In side was this baby and LOADSA LOVE!!

New Year News!

A few years ago I heard about having a "word of the year" rather then many resolutions that go out the window after a week! I have loved the word idea and the difference it makes in my life! This year I am going w/ a phrase rather then a word!

My phrase is "To Everything there is a Season".
Happy New Year!!
