In the meantime, just enjoy the cuteness!

I've OVERDOSED............

This weekend was way to short!!
I OD'd (overdosed) on some things.
Some bad, some really bad....
and some GOOD!!

I found myself overdosing on hair products.....
First of all.....I hate to get my hair and nails done so I put it off until I can't stand it anymore. So you know I'm desperate when I say
"I need my hair done in the worst way".
We had company last week over spring break so I didn't get my hair done, then my hairdresser (Terianne)has been in the hospital......
I'm about 4 weeks over do for my new do!


I've been overdosing on CARBS!!
We have the best Home Teachers in the whole, wide world.
He delivered "HOT" bread, right from the oven first thing this morning.
Then....we went to church and our dear friend Sandra Langly made bread and brought us a loaf to church. So now we have 2 loaves of homemade bread.....and what's a girl to do?
Homemade bread is my worst WEAKNESS!!!
Thanks Clyde and Sandra!!
Yep, I totally fell off the wagon and ate and ate and ate bread,
(oh yeah....and butter too)

...........and did I happen to mention Terri's
"Front Yard Boutique"this weekend?
Well, to make matters worse......I tried a new recipe from Pioneer Woman and made this Best Chocolate Cake Ever that Deny told me about. Love at first bite, for sure!!! I sold big ole' pieces of this cake and sold everyone of them....except for the piece I ate!!
But, it was worth every bite (I mean every carbohydrate)!
I totally feel like I waddled into church today.....

And now for the good!!

I totally O D'd on the "SPIRIT" today!
We had the BEST sacrament meeting!
Good speakers (Bill and Debbie Murset)leaving on a mission.
They had the Sr. Primary and their grand children sing
"I Know That My Heavenly Father Loves Me"
Most beautiful song I've ever heard!!
They only had the Sr. Primary go up to sing.....but sitting right behind us was...........


As I listened to the Primary children sing from the front of the chapel........I heard the sweetest little voice, sing every single word, right in tune...right behind us!!
I couldn't help it.....
I cried!!!
And I get goose bumps just thinking about it now!!
Chloe, I hope you sit behind us every single Sunday ....
I can't wait to hear you sing again!!
Now I know what ANGELS sound like!!

It isn't easy being GREEN ........

Green isn't my favorite decorating color....
after seeing these calm, green things....I might just change my mind.

Sweetiepie says, "The only things green I like are grass and money"
so, I'm working on changing his mind too!

Things I've learned about leprechauns....

Leprechauns are usually seen as old men that resemble shoemakers or cobblers and are always male.

How much gold is in their pots?
One gold coin for each year of the leprechaun’s life is in the pot.

They are considered mischief-makers who delight in causing things to move or disappear from around the household of ordinary folk.
(hey, this last one is wrong........the answer to this one is not's KIDS!!)

A few years ago my Sister-in-law, Diane

Meet Roxy..........

Meet all my red and white 8X8 squares.......
Hard to imagine a cute little quilt coming out of that stack......

Meet the little quilt, folded and laying across the cute!
And meet the quilt............

Especially for Sandra.......

If these are the chickens you're talking about..........
And if you are the Sandra that is the best "Sunday School teacher in the whole, wide world......."
And the best person I can ever imagine to "judge me"
And if you are the Sandra Sweetiepie thinks is "one nice dressed woman"


You need to come see me....cuz I won't sell these chickens to just anyone........but I will "GIVE" them to someone who will give them a good home......and that would be YOU!!!
They are YOURS!!!
