BFF's?? Sure thing!

Ashley at Little Miss Momma wants to be BFF's~and since I have a blog crush on her (or maybe I am stalking)....I thought, sure thing!  So, here are a few things she should know about me!

I truly think my children are my finest creation!

I will do just about anything for a fountain Coke from McDonalds.  Has to be McDonald's-and cannot be diet.  I swear it tastes better!

We've been married for over 10 years, he has been there for every birth of our 4 children--but I can't pee in front of my hubby....can't.  Girlfriends can parade through while I am going...but not him.  He has gotten out of the shower so I can "go"...and yes...I can go in front of the kids.

I have problems starting and finishing projects.  Lots of ideas...lots of sidetracking.  It took me a year to knit a simple hat for someone that I promised them.

If you are missing a Snickers candy bar, it is most certain that I am the one who ate it.  Same can be said for Coffee Haagen daz ice cream.

I love animals....I could be a hoarder.  I'm not...but I totally understand the inclination.

My goal is to totally simplify my life of posessions--but it makes me confused as to how to pare down my crafting ideas.

The last one also confuses me because I love to shop.....

I learn one craft, become obsessed with it to the point of perfection sometimes-then put it away and never do it again.

***edit***  because this one was just BAAADDD of me!  tee hee!
There.  It's a start.  Maybe Ashley won't go running for the hills!!  LOL

SNOW DAY!!!!!

Ok--well-it's been snowing FOREVER.  The kids have never been so excited to find out yet AGAIN, that school has been let out early.  Popcorn and drinks, they are ready to be STUCK in the house (until I kick them out).
--no, I didn't edit to add snowflakes...they are huge! What a contrast to a few months ago...(same view)

~but isn't it pretty now??  All "Christmasy" (is that a word????)

It's part of my lovely snow covered pot that we made earlier!!  Christmasy!!

...and I am off now to spend some quality time with my other love.....The one I simply can't live without.

Ohhh poor neglected blog...

What was I thinking trying to declutter around the holidays??  Ok, Ok...I did get the drawers and some cupboards in my kitchen cleared out--but then holiday festivities began and all goes awry. 

It's all good though.  Some really great memories were made amidst the clutter~like N~who spent twice as long as his brothers carefully perfecting his cookie before devouring it.  It's all in the details for N. 
Or how about a small girl in a pink dress?  She grins when being told by her brothers that she is PRETTY...mommy also likes to tell her that she is SMART!

and the tree....late is better than never-right?
In the middle of all this-I managed to bake 10 loaves of English thyme artisan bread yesterday-(teacher gifts), made the rosemary sea salt butter-I finished off the treats for a cookie exchange on Friday, nearly finished this dishcloth

and made another little taggie minky for Miss M~

so...I've been been busy--but a good busy  Lots of homemade gifts going out this year~consumable things for others.  I feel better about that.  I hate the accumulation of "stuff" which is why I am mildly nervous about the holidays...
Peace~

"stuff".....be looking for said stuff at a local thrift store near you!!  :)

Peace~
