For the Dog Lovers!!

One of my friends at work sent this to me. If you are a dog lover (like me) you will sit and stare at the screen memorized by this dog!

My favorite highlights are at 1:52 and 2:37 also at 4:14! I can't believe how attentive he is to his handler, watching her every move and hardly ever taking his eyes off of her face!

and to think, I can't even train my babies to stop pooping on the back porch!!!

Only 2 Days, 13 hours, and 47 minutes until TWILIGHT!!
I am soooo psyched!!!
Here's a little teaser............

Did I mention.....

Did I mention that I only have a four day work-week this week?? I am on vacation beginning Friday and I won’t return to the ole 9-5-er job until the Monday after turkey day!! I have soooo much to do! I have been working to do all of the chores (cleaning, laundry, etc..) In hopes that on my time off I can actually kick back, read a good book, craft to my heart’s content and blog all I want!!! I’m sure this is just a pipe dream but none the less, I am a busy girl as I work hard so I can rest…does that make any sense?? NOT!

Did I also happen to mention THE TWILIGHT MOVIE is also coming out in 4 Days?? Hmmm…how DID I forget this??? The Little Missy and I will be camping out in front of the movie theater for the very first showing at 12:01!! Yes, that’s after midnight!! No, I AM NOT too old to stay up that late!! No, I won’t have to take a nap…Stoppit!

Tea Time!

I wanted to show you these the other day but My teenager hijacked my camera!!
This was my Dollar Store project this weekend! I attached magnets to the back of the silverware to make these cute memo boards!!

We are always looking for ways to add storage space to my teensy little kitchen. This weekend we moved a bookshelf in there. What do you think about my sweet little tea shelf??

Little Missy thinks they are very Alice in Wonderlandish!!

What cha think? Alice in Wonderland? or Cute as a button??

and what about this mini baby one that I also acquired recently?

and me taking it a part! To get rid of the obnoxious glass thingy!!

Am I an electrician??

Maybe I am now!! hahaha!

The hubs has been working an enormous amount of hours lately and I miss him terribly! I had to go to the Depot all by my lonesome this weekend!! (poo on that!)It's ok....I found me a man on the side in the lighting section!! He wears a orange vest and knows a heck of a lot bout lighting!!! Shameful, I know! Dont' judge me! A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! **wink**

ps...Hubs, in case you actually find time to read this know it's all in fun!! You are my ONLY handy man!

Harleys, Brothers and Lots of LOVE!!

Last night the hubs and our oldest baby spent the afternoon (and well into the evening )at a benefit for my brother in law. He was in a near fatal motorcycle accident in August of this year. We really had a great time and they raised a whole lot of money to help his family with the unsurmountable medical bills!

John is an amazing guy with a heart of gold! We had a blast hanging out with his motorcycle "brothers" and enjoying the music from OTL. These guys were great!

This beauty is Steven's (OTL lead singer)fiancee! Cybelle you're a cutie!

It was soooo wonderful to see how many people, literally from all walks of life who came together to support this cause!

ps girls......this is one of my brother in laws who is about to be "on the market" again! I'm sure they'll be waiting in line for this one! What a catch!
