Conversation I had yesterday!
T: "Auntie would you like to play a game
where you get a box delivered and you
think it is full of little puppies but it is really full of me!!"
Serious tender mercy's yesterday. and just in the nick of time!!

Yesterday I was having a conversation w/ my brother in law
about all the education my little nephew was getting
at his twice weekly preschool. My brother in law stated "Theodore
is learning his letters and letter sounds and his numbers. "Theodore what
comes after seven?" Theodore w/ out missing a beat stated "MAY!"

Later that day grumpy little Theodore stood at the back door yelling
"Dadddyyyy Hey Daddddy! Do you want to play w/ your favorite little boy?"

I took my one year old tiny shopping about mid shop
he started waving his hands telling me (in baby sign)
that he was "all done". What a smart little cricket he is!!
Oh I love him!!

I love my nephews!! They are the best little people
I know! Today I had the chance to spend some
time w/ my best friends Eli and Isaac!
Eli and Isaac both had runny noses
and weren't feeling the best.
Eli even told me he died and layed on the couch
for a few minutes. (That isn't like him). Eli
got out all the toilet paper and paper towels
in the pantry and made towers for quite
a few minutes. I sat on the floor next to him
and looked something up on my phone.
I then had to quickly grab his brother in his room
and set my phone down. I came back later and
couldn't find my phone ANYWHERE!
I even pulled out the fridge.
I then lost Eli. He had opened the front door and ran
away! when I caught up w/ him he was on his
way to Las Vegas I'm sure!
I decided I needed to bring out the big guns!
The sand box it was. It was warm outside and I needed
a drink I stepped in for 2 seconds and
came out to Isaac who is normally
a total tow head sporting chocolate milk
covered hair and every inch of his body had sand on
it or in it. Not to mention the new sandy facial hair.
I then decided baths were in order. I filled the tub 
    and Isaac cried bloody murder while I tried to quickly
wash the sand from his soft body.
Eli tried to get as much water out of the tub in
the shortest time possible.
We got re-diapered and turned on a show.
My sister came home and knew which hidey hole
to check for my phone. But right before we
looked in the right place we looked under the couch.
There sat 6 green apples w/ little tiny bites taken out of each one
and then lovely lodged behind the couch.
Wonder who did that?
My sister is on call for those little sweeties 24/7.
She is Wonder Woman! I am not and I need a nap!! 


 Upon seeing my nephew at the wedding (My brother's) I asked him if he would like to go on the elevator. For a full hour later he was upset with me because I would not show him the "alligator" I had suggest he ride upon his arrival. Elevator and alligator do sound similar! Poor fella!

Long time no post!! I have been busy!

*Two week notice for a no budget impromptu wedding. I felt like The Little Red Hen!!

* A birthday filled to the brim w/ goodness!!

*Blood pressure through the roof...killer side effects!!

While playing w/ my nephew 3 and his friend I ask what they wanted for Christmas.
Friend: I want a remote control car, air plane and boat. I told him that was gunna cost Santa a lot and so he stated that he only needed one.
I then asked my darling nephew what he would like. He looked at my w/ a total dead pan expression and said "A magic wand so I can turn my self into lots of different people!!
What in the heck? This kid is the silliest ever!! I then taught them how to eat sunflower seeds right out of the flower! Time well spent!

*The leaves are falling! I love my boiled wool slippers even more. The days are darker and over cast and I am reminded that I am solar powered! *The bright glow of the yellow leaves makes me happy!!

Happy Fall!!

Bee Still!

My sweet tiny nephew has just begun
walking. He is still a little wobbly.
He loves to explorer his back yard.
Often he is found standing in front of
a flowering bush w/ vibrant purple flowers.
He is looking close at the happy honey bees
readying the hive.
I love the look of wonder and discovery
on his face. I love that he can stay
still for a long time watching
the quiet work of the bees.
I love that he reminded me to "Bee Still".



One year ago the world changed!
I feel so blessed to have been part of her

Friday, September 25, 2015

Oh Sally!

So I got this the other day!
It's like magic!

Monday, September 7, 2015

Oh Cath!

WE all know how much I love Cath (Kidston)
We all know how costly all her things are!!
Her closest store? London!
Look who I ran into at the thrift store the other day!
It was super stained and really nasty but I figured for
fifty cents it was worth a try.
I tried and tried using many different concoctions
to clean this little lady nothing worked till
in desperation I soaked her in peroxide over night.
Good as new...or good enough!!

Things I love as late:
*The crispness in the air.
*My tiny(Linkey) nephew walking!
*The same nephew had a 1 year old birthday!
*Free things!
*Already having Christmas gift thoughts!
*Finding Rapunzel hair at DI for my favorite little friend EMI!!
Happy last days of Summer!!

yummy treat!

The other day after handing my darling nephew
Theodore a whistle he asked. "Is this so I can blow this at
my house and you can hear it at your house and
then come over?
I wish!! Such a smart little fella! 

Thursday, August 20, 2015


This morning while talking to my darling nephew
Theodore on the phone he asked, "Auntie can
you come over and play today?"
I told him I wouldn't be able to play today
but I would come over soon!
He then said "Ok well make sure to
 ask your parents ok?
Love that tiny!!

Sunny'n the clouds away!

I have pictures "stacked up" on my phone. I have no idea
how to get them onto my blog. So alas no photos by me!
*I love when my nephew was asked his last name. He lovingly states Ferrill
just like his bestie Fodie!
*I love today I woke to jacket weather!
Today one of the little ladies I am in charge of each day asked for chicken noodle soup for dinner. I assured her that was a great idea! Tonight after the soup cooking all day in the crock pot she looked at it and stated " I wanted it out of the can!"

Upon waking I saw a small pile of bugs. I ran to get a paper towel, while totally grossed out. As I went to scoop them up I noticed they were only yarn! Darn crafty habits!!

My sister officiated at a wedding yesterday and it makes me giggle just thinking about it!! She is so RAD!!!

People who drink room temperature water are beyond me!! I like it on the verge of ice w/ a few icebergs floating around to boot!!

*Humidity and I are not friends!
*I am so thankful for 911!
*My nephew (1) can play a little wooden flute and my heck it is cute!
*I HATE cockroaches! ...
*Headaches are always following me around!!

One day two weeks ago this happened!!
Today I lost a small child. I hosted a group of house guests I had never met before. Stepped in dog poop and met a woman named Heather Robison.

*My new small bestie Anna reminds me often "You know I don't like to get dirty!!"

*Did you know Layton got a new Goodwill? My word it is good!! It is like walking down isles and isles of Target sale end caps!! Go check it out. It is just west of DI and around the corner from Savers!!

*Conversation I had a few weeks ago:

A: "My brother thinks you're overly happy!"
L: "That isn't necessarily a bad thing!"
Me: "Thanks I think?!"

**Check this out!!

Happy Summer!!

Hot Date!

The other night I spent some time w/
Theodore while his mommy and daddy went out.
It was a great time and lots of fun was had!
Some of my favorite parts were.
*When Theodore asked me if I was pretending
 to be his mommy when I made dinner.
*When Theodore's brother woke up and was
very unhappy. Theodore sung tiny a song
about death. He and his dad had had a deep
talk about how long people and pets live
and about when they die. I am sure Little Linc
was comforted by the death song!
* I couldn't get Little Linc back to sleep
after rocking him for a long time.
So I placed him in his bed and sadly he cried.
I felt upset by his crying. Theodore  then reassured me
that "Sometimes you just have to let him cry
a little so he will learn to go to sleep!!" I knew he was right 
and I felt happy to know that the three year old in the
house had things under control.
*The following day was mommy's birthday.
Theodore and I decorated the place and
he really wanted to hide and jump
out and surprise his mommy. Where
does he learn this stuff? I asked him
to do it in the morning when mommy would REALLY
be surprised. Wonder what time her wake up
call was?  
*I loved when Theodore would reenact a conversation
his mommy had w/ him and it sounded just like her!
*I tucked little man in bed but didn't pull the covers up.
It was warm and he had on warm jammies.
Theodore looked at me and said.
"Ummm I need these blankets on top of me."
What was I thinking!
Tiny people are the BEST people!!
Love you Fodie!!


I have some stuff to show and tell!!
So they have a channel. There post every few weeks.
They are cute quirky thrift and wear glasses!
Did you ever watch the PBS shows like 1900 House!? 
I loved it in high school.  I found The Coal House.
Last night and I love it!
Studio 5? Yes please. There has been some goodies as
of late. Check em out!!
What do you have to share?

Clock it!

I like clocks. I like clocks enough to collect them.
I am trying only to spend money on needs
and not on clocks. However when
this little fella called my name
and his sticker said 2 dollars.
I answered back "OK!"
This clock came w/ a yucky pinkey
flesh color. I thought I would spray paint it.
Then I remembered this post from 4 Men 1 Lady.
I thought I'd strip this baby down to raw metal for
that industrial chic look.
I lost the thumb print on my left hand
but after 15 minutes w/ a can of striper
and scrubbie this darling looked like
a shiny new quarter!!
I think I sweated a gallon of water but it was so worth it!!
Hope your summer is delish!!
Do something un expected!!


This house always makes me wonder!!
*I love small conversations my nephew (Eli) has w/ him self.
He is so animated and loves every thing dramatic!
I noticed him place a large yellow rubber band on his head and
admire himself in the mirror. The rubber band was better then
a gold crown in his eyes.

*I love that Eli reminds me often that "Heavenly Father makes thunder!"
*I stood at the side of the road while watching Elder Boyd K Packer's
family drive by to lay him to rest. I noticed a small sign saying "Welcome
Home Elder Packer" It was quiet and reverent. I wish
all people had such an amazing send off.

* I love that I just made a phone call and forgot
the last name of the person I was reverencing. Oh my!!
*Look up my sister's new art endeavor on Facebook.
Spray Baby is her new store front!!
*I could eat my tiny nephew Lincoln w/ a spoon!!

*My sisters family has been so so sick w/ the flu!!
I am so grateful for health!!

* My brother sold his house and it couldn't be
anything but wonderful!!
*I am tired of being HOT and poor!!

*My sister had some stubborn black marks on her
carpet. I whipped out the hair spray and TA DA
they are gonezy!! WOOT! Woot!
* I hate DI regret!!
* I love summer rain!

*My favorite yummy lunch date involves The Corner Bakery!

**I love that the library emails me to tell me my books
are almost due!!
Happy Summer!!

-Still love me some Essiebutton!!!
Another fun fave? Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners.
Happy Summer!!

What is happening here?

My darling nephew Eli (2) was helping me look for a shirt
for his mommy to borrow. He looked at the pile of clean clothes and said
"What is happening here? I don't know what is happening here!!"
I guess the kid isn't used to huge amounts of clothing in piles!
Poor fella!!
New favorite You Tube friends.
You can thank me later!!

*I feel near death. I have a killer head cold!
*Fun for Louis was in Salt Lake last night!
*Being sick is so hard! I am healthy 99% of the time.
That one percent is just to make me thankful for
good health.
*I need a nap but my mind will not quiet!
*I am reading a book but I am not in love.
 I really want to brake up but
I hate to be fair weather.

    The hand of the child on the piano
I love my nephew Fodie so much.
He can take me or leave me.
I mostly bug him lately. Yesterday was a rare treat
We played a little all day! It was an exciting moment
when his daddy fired up the new yard sale keyboard.
Little brother Lincoln crawled right up to the key board and
pressed his tiny fat baby hands on the keyboard.
Fodie not to be outdone pressed his hands down hard also.
I asked Fodie nicely to take his hands off!
Fodie looked and me perplexed and said
 "Auntie I can't take my hands off!"
Looking at his hands and looking at me!!
He had never and will never remove his hands from his wrists
and honestly wonders why I think he could or would!!
Love that Fodie!!

I did the raddest thing last night.
You should do it too!!
 I hate hearing how toxic everything is.
 I keep hearing microwave popcorn is toxic.
 So last night I made popcorn in a brown bag.
It was DELISH and so darn easy. I felt like MacGyver!!!

Happy Spring!!

I read about this book on a blog. The whole idea of
it sounded intresting to me. It is about a woman who loses
all her money in a bad investment. She is rich one day and down and out the next! 
 She goes from riches to rags in
one day. I loved to see how this woman was forced to 
look at life diffrently. It made me have very deep thoughts and
think about money diffrently. This book was very profound to
me and really spoke to me at this little rough spot in my life. 

**Disclaimer: This book does used the F-word about five times. 
Also this woman wrote a book that is about sex. It is mentioned a few times. 
I just skipped over those pages because they were a bit much. 
My library does not own this book and I had to borrow it from and
inter-library loan. FYI.

My new favorite thing in the whole wide world. 
(or not) is You Tube. I love to see what people
buy at thrift stores, dollar stores, yard sales
dumpster dive..ect ect. 
So I will be posting some of my favorite channels
in the next little while so you can partake of the joy too!! 

Happy Spring!!

Life as of lately!!

I will post my own photos again when someone
teaches me how to get the photos off my phone and on the blog!! 

*My favorite over heard conversation today. A friend was passing out mints during sacrament meeting The mints must have reminded Ms. E of gum. . Ms. E (4 years old) stated "sometimes when I chew gum it' slips right down my throat!"

*Tonight I sat down at a table of strangers at a wedding reception. I noticed the family next to me had accents and asked if they were from New Zealand. The woman stated they were and then said "You're Heather right? I know you from Facebook. Hello....Awkward long pause and lots of blushing followed!!

*Conversation I had today w/ my darling friend Benjamin (6 years old).
Me: Hey Ben who is the baby in this picture?
B: It's Jesus.
Me. I don't think it is Jesus. Is it you? ...
B: No it's Jesus!
B:Why don't you think it is Jesus?
Me: Well they didn't have disposable diapers when Jesus was born. And sadly they didn't have cameras.
B: Oh I could be wrong!

*Yesterday at church I noticed a little lady (2/3ish) doing jazz hands at me. I gave her a little wink wink and went about my business. A few minutes later she flashed the hands again! I noticed then she had noticed that we sported the same pink nail polish. I acted shocked and overly pleased, pointed to my finger nails and at her and gave her the best mid meeting jazz hands I could offer. We will be nail besties forever!!

*Funny how upon seeing my grade school teachers I become the child I was!! Saw Mrs. Romer (2nd grade) tonight and was all blushy and said in a tiny voice "Hi Mrs. Romer!"

Today my brother called in dis-stress.
He needed to complete a punch list by
 tomorrow for an inspection on his house.
 My mom and I went up to help. Upon arriving
 we could see how little we were getting done.
 My mom walked next door and talked to the
 neighbor (who happened to be the bishop)
w/ in 20 minutes 10 or more men (& young men)
 were there to help. I told my brother
 "It's a modern day miracle!!"
So grateful for kind people who do good even
 when there is no physical or monitory reward!
 Great reminder of the importance of service is!! Gushhhh!

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!!

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!

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!!
Image result for Pink can of paint\
*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!

Wednesday, March 25, 2015


*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!!!

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!!
