My new Favorite Item

This thing is awesome! I saw the commercial for it last night and had to get one today at the store. It's sweeps up pet hair off furniture easily and quickly. I LOVE IT!!

The loves of my life

Max and Reese sharing the new ottoman.

Reese (aka reese cup)
Scottie (aka scottie dog, pee pot)
Max (aka Maxer, Maxamillion)
Shiloh (aka the princess)

The biggest love of my life (aka Paul)

p.s. - no pics of Elroy (the parakeet) but he's definitely on the list.


I am grateful today for the beautiful spring day.

My mom always called daffodils - daffodowndillys - and I found this great poem today titled Daffodowndilly's which made me smile. Where we grew up there were tons of daffodils in our yard and my brother would always make sure mom had fresh daffodils in the kitchen all spring long.

by A. A. Milne

She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour;
"Winter is dead."

Birthday Boy!

I surprised him with a bouquet of cupcakes for the big day, he was very surprised and thought they were real flowers. We spent the day with his family and had dinner together, it was alot of fun. Unfortunately the next day he and I both had food poisoning and were incredibly sick. All is better now.
I'm always excited for birthdays and the promise of another year.
