It's finally Wednesday....but it's my Friday
I'm taking off ~
Thurs., Fri., Sat., and Sunday
My BFF, Marla and I are headed to her cabin in Alpine
We're going to soak up the cool weather
And breathe the fresh air
And do projects, and play cards and laugh and sleep
I can't wait!

I hope Jesus doesn't want me for a "Sunbeam"
"Sunbeam's are just to HOT!"
It's 112 degrees out there!

But, we have these great aluminum glasses
and when I drink out of them it takes me back to being a kid in HOT, HOT Phoenix~there was nothing like a cold drink of water or soda out of an aluminum glass
Guess what I had today after church.....yep, you guessed it
A cold glass of ice with Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper
Hoke and Diane gave us a set of them a few years ago and during the summer they are one of my favorite things!

Crazy about CHALKBOARDS!

Can you believe how cute these ideas are?
Cute, cute, cute!
I'm trying to find the perfect spot for a "Cute Chalkboard"

What a cute accessory to a kitchen counter or table
Look how fun it would be to use CHALKBOARDS to help decorate for the holidays
Love it, love it, love it!
Be sure to check out the difference in these two doors
Top one used Liquid Chalk

I saw this on my Mary Engelbreit’s calendar and had a good chuckle. Everyday , I think I am going to get everything done and then go sit and relax. Well that doesn't work so then I just forced myself to go sit and watch TV, my mind was racing about what I could be doing instead. Or even worse, what I would do once I got up from this chair. Sigh.

(Blogging is the most relaxing thing to me, maybe that's why I love it so much)

It will be Christmas before we know it ..... OH NO!

You need to vote.....

I found a cheap, easy way to get a tan, get rid of wrinkles, airbrush photos, change the color of your lipstick, add mascara, get colored contacts and make you look thinner or heavier.....
Yep, it's a MIRACLE!!
Go to Picnik
Try it, you might like it!
So now you need to VOTE......

After an advanced PICNIK makeover......

After a PICNIC medium make over......

No makeover.....just bare naked
Pale, blah, wrinkled, sagging, chubby me with RED EYE!
Which do you like best?
Mary Kay is probably turning over in her grave right now!!

Ice, Ice Baby............

So, it was only 112 stinkin' degrees today
I went to the freezer to get a cup of ice to have a nice cold drink
and this is what I found!!


So, I braved the weather and the elements and went out to the patio to the ice machine to fill the ice bucket


So, I jumped in the car and went to Mickey D's to buy some ICE!
"Welcome to McDonald's, may I take your order"
"Yeah, I'd like 2 bags of ICE, please"
"Sorry, our ICE machine isn't working very well, it's ......
I'm starting to PANIC......I need ICE!
So, I drove to...yep, SONIC....

"Welcome to Sonic, may I take your order"
"Yeah, I'd like 2 bags of ICE, please"
"Sorry, we're not selling ice today, our machine isn't making enough ICE to keep up with our drink orders, it's .........
any one that knows me, knows I need my ICE!
This ICE shortage might just push me over the edge!!!!
