Spring is here!

Hooray! Spring is here!
Over night my weeping cherry blossom tree sprouted all these beautiful white buds. Gorgeous huh? Sadly, it's twin on the opposite side of our front stairway, did not survive the winter. It will now be taken down and another put in its place.
It's a beautiful 70 degrees down here in the land of cotton and I am feeling spring time and the river across our street is calling my name. "[my name here]" it says. I have taken the top off of Sasha the Jeep and the wind blows through my hair as I drive. Unfortunately, that drive took me to my day job.
Grumpy is here with me today at work and (you guessed it) she's grumpy, though I must say it is not too bad. She must be feeling the spring weather too!

Crit Giveaway

Hooray for Tuesdays!

Today is Tuesday, my favorite day of the week. Why, you ask.
Is it because it is an off day from my real job? No.
Is it because I get to sleep late? No.
Is is because I have a babysitter and get to go off on a date with the W? No.
Why then?
It is because on TBS from 7pm to 10pm standard central time, I can plop my hinie down on the sofa and watch nothing but The Office reruns. (Dwight rules!)
Picture me clapping with a big smiley face!
Yes, I really am this boring.....

Cupcake Rag Quilt

This throw would be perfect for any little lady's room. It features lots of cupcakes (yum) and lots of pink. The cupcakes prints are from Amy Shimler's Confection fabrics. (Amy's Blog) It measures about 60x70 inches and is for sale at $175. You can read more and see more pics at my shop.

How stupid am I?

This morning while making poptarts for kids breakfast before school, I smeared mayonaise on the top of them instead of the usual butter. No, I am not a disgusting eater, I am only so sleepy that I didnt notice I had picked up the wrong smear. (Sigh)

Happy laughed finding the mix up hysterical. (He talked about the incident the rest of the morning.)

Grumpy rolled her big brown eyes as if I am as lame as they come.

What to have for dinner?

It is 4pm and I am still at work. My cell rings and the caller ID says 'home'. I know which kid it is. I have two children, who we will call 'Happy' and 'Grumpy'. Happy is a boy and the baby. Grumpy is a girl.

Happy: What are we having for dinner?

YT: Something with hamburger meat.

Happy: Burritos?

YT: Ooo, not tonight.

Happy: Shepherd Pie?

YT: Um, I will ask the W when I get home.

Happy: What are we having for dinner?

YT: I told you I dont know yet.

Happy: Pick something woman!

(Sigh) Where do kids get this stuff?

The W

My husband, who shall forever we will only call "W", does not like social media. In fact, he believes that it will destroy the world (or so he gripes about daily). Stuff like facebook, twitter, even blogs is an invasion of privacy. He would appreciate it if I did not put up personal pictures and such and let everybody know all the private details of our life.

W: Why would you want to do that?

YT: I dunno.

W: You are allowing a serial killer into our lives.

YT: <-----rolling my eyes

Do I have time to write blogs? No. So why do I add this to my daily lists of things to do? I dunno. More importantly, why would you care? You won't, but maybe, just maybe, we will have fun.
