Doing this religiously.....

I'm so excited!
It's finally my week to be the one and only guest blogger for my sweet and special friend, Laura, from Rhinestone Armadillo.
So here goes...

Hello All!!!!!
It's the SOA. You know what that means. Yes! Sit down and watch My Big Fat Greek Wedding for the 52nd time and finish up that laundry! Woooo Hoooo!!!

*crickets chirping*

Okay! Plan B.

~~Plant new things~~
My new obesession? Succulents. Succulents, also known as fat plants, are water-retaining plants adapted to blah blah blah... All I know is that even I can't kill them. Give them the right amount of light, water every couple of days and taa daa.

They are the craziest little beings and some of their names are even better.
Fairy Washboard, Hens and Chicks, String of Pearls and Living Rocks...just to name a few.

I know it's like 142 degrees outside but hop to it.
Grab and BIG bottle of water and go outside.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding will always be there.

At the very least, on Saturday morning, go sit on the porch and watch the guys mow your yard.
Or maybe that's just me.

I had to stick this picture in.
I took it during one of my Not So Summer's of Awesomeness when I was completely bored. Yes. I resorted to playing with dead bugs.
It was a cry for help.

Sooooo...the grandbabies went back to live with their Mama. Yes. It was time. Yes. I slept for like a week AND YES, I cried for like two weeks.

My next step? Getting this thing called a JOB after 13 years. I'm exhausted and missing Maury Povich...but...I'm making my own car payment. Go me!!!!

Weekend Junking

We went to a little teeny tiny flea market here in Dallas. There weren't too many vendors but I'm betting it will pick up as the weather gets warmer. Can't wait....

For some reason, both of these called to me...especially the poodle.
Loooove the poodle and he looks like he's been loved in the past.
And who can say no to a wedding cake topper? Not me.

So I Get This Phone Call At Work...

One of my good friends husband calls me at work.
"Rachel's birthday is coming up."
"Yep. I know."
"She needs a surprise party."
"Yep. I agree."
"You make the cake. Okay?"
"Oh, it's tomorrow."

It's Just Not Right...

We're on day 4 of no school. Kill me. Kill me now.

The neighborhood camel. He ain't happy.
We got bored and headed to the back roads. It's what we's who we are...
Do you see the Cardinal?
I think I heard him say "I hate you people in your
4 wheel drive trucks with your seat warmers. Damn you."
Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night
will keep me from my Cherry Coke from Sonic.

Goodwill Love

I love to lay in bed and look at my wall of Goodwill finds.
I know...I should get a life.
Maybe tomorrow.
Here's my new friend.
My aunt said that it looks like David Hyde Pierce and Shakespeare had a baby.
I named him Leonard.
I love Leonard.
