Something's missing.......

Oh's TERRI!!

When you have three BFF'S....
and it works.....
it's a GOOD THING!

So, the two that were left had to continue on....
all alone......
But we promise.....
We won't have too much fun without her!

Diet? What diet?
We had homemade cinnamon rolls
and one of us had Hot Chocolate.....YUMMY!

We each put on a happy face~
Pretending to have a good time.....

However, we really were miserable! Can't you tell?

We won't be complete until you're home....
with US! Just like the good ol' days....

We ordered an extra salad.....just for you
it's waiting for you in the fridge!

Then to one of our favorite places....
Orange Patch Too
for their Christmas Open House
We suffered through it.....
it just wasn't the same without you!

Bring those babies and come HOME!!!

Today's color is.................

I think, if you are depressed.....decorate with YELLOW
It's got to cheer you up!!

Soaking in this tub would definitely make me SMILE!
Good day sunshine.....
AHHHHH....don't you just love it! I could snooze here!
Love this bathroom, but I'm not so sure about the wall...
What happened?
This reminds me of Jenny.....zebra rug and all!
Come sit...let's can even step on the carpet.......
Happy, happy, happy!

Never thought of YELLOW being so elegant...but it works.......
Love the stripes on the headboard.......
I'm still debating about this room......
What do you think?

This hutch and YELLOW dishes would look great in my dining room
Don't ya think?

I saved the BEST for last.....
this is my
So French Country or Country French.....whatever!
SO, what color are you lovin' today?

Sweetiepie had a tired finger.....
He was busy on the REMOTE!!
We had a busy night............

Dancing with the Stars.....with Donny Osmond............

And the Phoenix Suns...........
On at the same time!!
What were we to do?
We managed....we got to see both, thanks to Sweetiepie's trigger
(Phoenix Suns won and Donny is going to the finalists!)
Happy Birthday, yesterday, to my sis-in-law, Diane!
She's one talented lady and she has blessed my home with many, many, many beautiful things! Thanks, Di! I know you had a good day!

Keri're the best!!!

"Nothing dresses up for a fancy to-do like an apron. It's like it puts on its lipstick and a slick pair of heels and it's ready to party!."

I got the best surprise the other day....
Marla and I placed a special order with Jenny's mom,
for an CUTE apron she makes. We wanted to get Terri one for her birthday.......

(remember this cute apron from the post for Terri's birthday)
So CUTE!!!!
To my surprise.......when Jenny arrived she had 2 aprons instead of 1
Keri Sue
made 1 for me!!! Yippeeee!!

Look how cute!!!
(the apron....not me)
Jenny, your MOM rocks!!
Keri Sue
(Hey, that rhymes)

(don't tell Terri, but I like mine best!

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored …
His truth is marching on.

Thank a VET!

Sweetiepie is selling his truck
2008 GMC
Very low miles
Driven with tender loving care
We have 4 vehicles and 2 drivers
Does that make sense to you?

Deer in the headlights.............

Do you know this woman?

Aren't you glad you're not in her shoes!!
Her recipe below feeds 16 to 20.....can you imagine!?
Makes me thankful for my crazy life!


2 pounds ground turkey, cooked, seasoned, drained
3 (2-pound) bags Tater Tots
2 10-3/4-ounce cans cream of mushroom soup
2 10-3/4-ounce cans cream of chicken soup
2 12-ounce cans evaporated milk


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Spread the seasoned, browned meat in two 9x13-inch casserole pans.

Cover the meat with the Tater Tots (you don't have to cook them first.) Mix the soups and milk together and pour the mixture over the top.

Bake for 1 hour. Serves 16 to 20.

November 4th ......
It's special in every way......
Cuz it's the day we celebrate a YOUR birthday!

Your fifties is the stage in your life when you become mature, reliable and dependable. In other words, boring, predictable and conventional.

In your fifties time becomes precious and must not to be wasted - every minute is an excellent opportunity for a good nap.

Fifty and wise or eighteen and foolish? If only there were a choice!!

I can’t believe you’re 50; 49 maybe, but never 50!

Wish you were here to celebrate......
We can party when you return
I guess it can wait!

Grand babies are due
You've waited so long
If they're born Nov . 4th
You can sing them this song.....
"Happy Birthday to You"
and to you and to you....oh my, what will you do?

Terri, you are a one in a million friend and I you!
Happy Day!!

cute little things!

There was one was lonely....all alone in the fridge...totally all by was the only good thing in the whole joint (besides Halloween candy) of course. I could hear some noise coming from the I got closer....I realized it was calling my name!! So, rather than put it down the garbage disposal.....I ATE IT!! THE WHOLE PIECE!! Oh, what am I going to do?
OK, Emily....I fell off the wagon time to get back on!!
(Don't tell anyone, but it was sooooo good and totally worth the pound or two I might gain because of it....totally worth it!!
