New friends…

Along our front walk, we have a honeysuckle.  One day while walking out the front door, I noticed a bird fly quickly away from the honeysuckle.  I took a look and found… I kept watch and was excited when I found… and The girls and I kept watch and were careful not to upset Momma Bird… We watched the birds quickly grow… Then, they were gone.  I keep telling myself they flew away, but I am afraid they were not…

Nightstand…

Nightstand…

I have been on the look out for a new nightstand for some time.  I just could not find what I was looking for.  Then one day I was walking around a local flea market and I came across this…. I quickly fell in love and bought it.  I paid $16.99 for this treasure.  I am so happy. I did learn during my search though, never do an internet search for “nightstands” unless you are prepared for the search to return…

Chair

Chair

In the corner of my bedroom is one of the most comfortable chairs ever.  It came with the husband who I believe got it used from a friend.  I have never been a fan of the pattern and the fabric is getting kind of worn.  To fix the problem I have always draped a sheet over it.  I was getting tired of that. Recently, I have been really wanting a new chair, but financially that is just silly since the…

Mommy’s Day Off…

Mommy’s Day Off…

My  wonderful husband treated me to a day off today.  It was awesome.  It started with breakfast made and delivered to me–fresh fruit, cereal, and hazelnut coffee.  After that, I was able to enjoy a nice peaceful morning with no responsibilities.  I was then chauffeured to  a spa where I enjoyed a massage and facial.  I was then able to do some shopping.  After shopping, I was taken to my favorite Thai restaurant to enjoy a wonderful meal with my…

McDonald’s…

McDonald’s…

I have to say that the people that want the McDonalds’ Happy Meals banned are really making me mad. This is just another example of people blaming someone else for their problems. The girls love McDonald’s, but we do not eat there very often. When we do, we try to make better choices for them. They like the chicken nuggets. For a side, they get the apples. They don’t even know that they come with caramel dip. They are not…

Sick day…

Sick day…

I hate to take a sick day for me.  I hate admitting that I am sick, but today I had to do just that.  I have spent most of the day in bed while eating only rice.  My wonderful husband stepped up to the plate and took care of the girls and all the daily running.  He is pretty cool.  Still not feeling 100%, but I do feel better.  Off to work tomorrow.  I have to get everything done for…

Simplify–kitchen…

Simplify–kitchen…

One of my goals for this year is to simplify my life.  One area I have been working on this is in the kitchen.  This week I have been cleaning out cabinets and downsizing.  I mean, really, did I need to keep 5 boxes of tea that were all expired?  Also, I am forbidding myself from buying any plastic silverware for parties this year–I have more than enough.  But, it is all nicely organized on its own self now. One…

Super Bowl Sunday…

Super Bowl Sunday…

It is was so nice to get out of the house yesterday.  It was the first time I went anywhere since work last Monday.  We were able to go out to my dad’s house and visit.  We also made a trip to the grocery store to stock up on food for another storm system that is supposed to be moving in, and Super Bowl Sunday.  I don’t know what it is about football, but it makes me want to eat…
