I need your help.........

My daughter, TeriAnne, isn't feeling too good these days. There's not a lot I can do for her, she goes for a root canal tomorrow and she's had a toothache for days. I'm taking dinner to her family tomorrow night, but I can't decide what the heck to fix. Any ideas. Here's a few I'm considering:
  • Sloppy Joe's
  • Goulosh - you know macaroni, hamburger, tomato sauce, cheese
  • Stroganoff
  • Chicken something or another
Any other suggestions? Remember she has 2 little boys, 6 and 9 and I work all day, so I have to put something together when I get home or put something in the crock pot before I go to work.

Let me hear what you'd fix if you were me and hey....let me know what your fixin' for dinner for your fam!

Come on in....have a chair.....

I these chairs. I'm looking for fabric so Diane (clickhere) can re-upholster a chair and foot stool for me. Here are some ideas I , but my chair doesn't look anything like these, but I do the different fabrics, don't you?
This fabric would go great in the office, which is where I'm planning on putting the chair and foot stool. Don't you just it!!
So pretty. Probably too fancy for me though.

These cups under the cloche ideas are for you Terri! Just be sure to tell everyone where you got the idea.....ok, so that's a private joke. They look just like my BFF Terri...so this is for you.

Lipstick on a PIG!!

I rarely leave the house without my lipstick. I've had the hardest time finding the color and brand that I like so I've been changing often. So many of them have a funny taste to me and I am very picky about my LIPSTICK~ I've tried MANY - Estee Lauder, Clinique, and finally I found one I liked at Ulta and I went back to get more and they are discontinuing that line........aaararrrggggggggg!!~So, low and behold, I tried Loreal and found it at Walmart.......go figure. I love it.

Here's some fun stuff about lipstick!!

To see this enlarged~

What does your lipstick say about you?????

Oh.....what sweet Young Women!!

I went by Deny's house tonight (she was the YW Pres. I served with) and she had the sweetest surprise for me! Those dear sweet girls made the cutest little book for me.

They had a picture of each girl and they each took a page and wrote a sweet note to me. I will cherish that forever. Those girls, each one in her own way has touched my life in ways they will never understand. You each one are SO special!! Just take a look! Priceless!!

We had a birthday party for Lavina, my dad's dear wife, tonight at Hoke and Diane's house. They have the best yard for birthday parties, or any kind of party for that matter.

We drove up and Emily met me at the truck with these!!! Em...you're a gem! Hey, that rhymes!

It was good to see all the fam and the new babies, but the best surprise was a couple of boxes of CheezIts!!

Em.....I owe you one!! They make me smile!!

7 Friends Every Woman Needs



They’re there when times are bad and they’re there when times are good. They’re our sisters, our secret-keepers, our advisers. Read here about my FRIENDS then pick up the phone and call yours.

The kooky friend - Terri

You never know what's next when it comes to Terri. She's always got something up her sleeve, (you can hear it in her voice) a good idea, a practical joke, a interesting way of making service fun and you know there will never be a dull moment. She always has hilarious stories......her whole life is hilarious. She might not think so, but to be on the outside looking in it's pretty darn hilarious!~In her other life she was a CLOWN......need I say more?

The new friend - Jenny


I've only known Jenny a couple of years, but I love Jenny. She's young enough to be my daughter, but she doesn't make me feel old. Jenny has a strength about her, a calmness I can't describe. Jenny has an old soul in a young body! She's smart and I have a great deal of respect for her.

The friend you'll keep for life - Bobbie

Bobbie and I have been friends for almost half of my life. I haven't seen Bobbie for a long, long time......too long of a long time, but I can promise you when Bobbie and I get together we don't miss a beat. Bobbie and I share something I share with no one else in this world!! I love her and she knows it. We are both secure in our friendship and we never miss a Christmas or a Birthday. I can say something like "NOW?" and it will take her back many, many years and we will both laugh. It's a girlfriend thing.


The 9-to-5 friend -

I don't really have one, but I have an email, blogger friend named Neeners. We used to be in the same ward and we loved to take NT and to the Casino for crab legs! They had the crab legs, I had the buffet. Neener is full of information. If ever you need to know something of find something, Neeners is your girl. I have formed a wonderful, caring relationship with this woman and I love her!

The friends who show up - Marla

You hope your friends are what you think they are. This girl is solid!! If I don't think of it she will. She's my shopping buddy........I shop, she goes along to give me directions and always grabs my bags or purse. I spend money....she NEVER does!! She's always ready for an adventure and she's a blast and a half to be around. Add Terri to our duo and you've got absolute craziness! We are BFF's!~~ We share our quiet personal things and I know anything I ever tell her will never be told to another soul! Now, that's important!! I can depend on that girl for anything and everything and I do!!!

The friend who's been there - Linda

Linda and I have been to HELL and back together! She was my biggest cheer leader when I went through my divorce....she held me together. She was my glue for sure! Linda lives across town, but she might as well live across the country. It's so hard to get over to see her. She's not well and doesn't drive anymore....but once she calls....we can be on the phone FOREVER!! We single handedly can solve the problems of the world in one telephone conversation.

The couple friends - Brenda

Every Monday night....dinner and Hand and Foot. We call it Home Evening, cuz we discuss church stuff and we bless the food and stuff, but our hubby's get together to play cards.....Brenda and I get together to visit..........our hubby's just happen to be there and we have cards in our hands acting like we're enjoying the game. Drives our guys NUTS......oh well, it will probably always be like that...so get over it!

YOU ROCK!!!! Great idea!!

found it here

Here is a fun idea. This would be a cute idea for birthdays for Young Women or Visiting Teaching ladies. A small inexpensive token. She had all of the girls in the youth group write down a few words describing each girl. She then took a few of the words and wrote them on polished stones with a silver paint pen. One word on each stone. She put them in a cute pink sheer bag with a pull ribbon closure. {from a national craft store;very inexpensive} She put a cute tag on it that says "We think you ROCK. Happy Birthday to you!" with their name on the other side. She also tossed in some candy for instant gratification. {they are teenagers afterall} Hopefull it will help build their self-esteem and remind them that someone loves them. They can pull them out when they have a bad day or put one in the bottom of their purse or pocket as a reminder of how amazing they are.

WILTED....................

This is how I'm feeling.........wilted! I went to see GEORGE (or Dr. Crawford) to some and I'm crouping and coughing just like I was a month or so ago. I thought it was just allergies........but it's got an asthma feel to it and he said my chest was quite congested. So, back on a Z pack antibiotics and some albuterol and a couple of puffers to inhale. So, few more days and I'll be back to normal. I'm going to try to take it easy this weekend and I'll be as good as new by Monday. Keep your fingers crossed!!

Speak to me PHOTOS!!

I dream of sitting on the streets of Paris, relaxing, having a bite to eat with someone I love. If ever I was to day dream......here's where I'd be. (But I wouldn't be riding that bike).

I love the white dishes and the open cupboards! I could never have my cupboards open....are you kidding......what a mess!! Love the wall too!
I love stripes and prints together. I remember when that was such a NO....NO! But not anymore......anything goes. I've lovin' black these days too!!

Isn't this just the cutest little chair you've ever seen? Diane.........if you ever see one of these, snag it and fix it up for me as only you can do!! I'm needing one of these little numbers. What do you think?

I love the old cabinet and the old empty picture frames. Now, if I only had a place to put it.
Join me for brunch in my garden? What the heck.....a girl can dream can't she?
Interesting how I love these small tables and chairs and empty walls........so why are all my walls so full? I think I'd go crazy if I had to live with empty walls but I love to look at pictures of them.
Pretty, pretty, pretty. I wish my entry could look like this.....I love it! Oh well, enough of this dreaming stuff.....I guess I'd better go fold the laundry!

Let me see some photos that speak to you. I'll be checkin'!
