Turtleneck:  JCPenney, Vest:  Thrifted, Jeans:  NY&C, Boots:  F21

This post isn't to be gross but why do people have to fart in the elevator before they walk out?  Really?  You can't wait 2 more seconds to get into an open area?  You make it awful for the person that gets on after you.  Thanks white haired man for the awful ride this afternoon.

It has been exactly a week since I've lost one of the most important men in my life, my Grandpa.

Memories of him have been flooding back to me in this past week.....

Getting ride after ride on the lawnmower trailer

Listening to 'Yes Sir, That's My Baby' so many times, I still know the words

Looking out our parents window and seeing him sitting in his lawn chair taking a nap on the front porch

Hearing the bell ring (which meant feeding time for the dogs)

Him saying 'Bah Humbug' every Christmas

Watching 'The Lawrence Welk Show' and dancing around

He may of looked his age of 95 years old but he sure didn't act like it!  He was full of life, jokes and always had a belly full of food.  We always wondered how he could eat so much but stay so skinny!  The last meal of his life was his favorite food, ice cream.

The Lord blessed my family so much in giving us those last special days but also giving him no pain.  He is now in a perfect body with the love of his life, Betty.

Well, I figured out what I want to do with my life.....take pictures of puppies.  Little puppies, fat puppies, slobbery puppies, really any kind of puppies.  Since I've gotten my new camera that is all I've done.

That picture of Macy below is really her thinking 'Really Mom, again?  How many pictures can you get of me laying down.'

Note:  Every dog to me is a puppy.

My sister was at the hospital last night with my Grandpa who is 95 years old and got a bad case of the stomach flu.  So, last night I babysat my nephew Mason and we had a great time....

Playing bouncy ball ALL night

Cracking up at Uncle Danny making Leo do tricks

Making Aunt Jodi get the bouncy ball from all the hard places

Danny and I trying to figure out what you do with a 2 year old!

My first time taking him to go "pee in the potty"

Him going poop right after I took him potty (that face above is the same face I made then)

Finding out Mason is a HUGE bed hog

The cutest thing of the night was when we were driving to my house and he was telling me how Grandpa Skeeter was sick.  We decided to say a prayer.

I started the prayer and he repeated every word I said and he ended it with 'Thank you Jesus'.  It just made my heart swell.

Baby Shower

My sister Anna is due next month with her first baby!  And it's a girl!  After 2 years of my nephew, who is ALL boy....a girl will be a nice change.

Yesterday we hosted her baby shower at my house with a tea party theme.  It turned out so cute and everybody had a great time!

Here is a glimpse of my morning conversation with a co-worker.
Whoever invented IM was a genius. It was too ridiculous not to share.

can vampires have babies                                10:02 am
i guess not because they don't age                      10:02 am

no they can't                                           10:02 am
but a human and a vampire can have a baby,
Edward and Bella                                        10:02 am

but is the baby human then                              10:02 am

half vampire/half human                                 10:02 am

so does it age                                          10:03 am

yes                                                     10:03 am

and dies like a human                                   10:03 am

but not like a normal human
all the human aging happens at the beginning and
then the vampire immortality at the end                10:04 am

makes sense                                             10:04 am

god, i wish people could read what we are typing        10:04 am

i know
they would think we were on drugs                       10:05 am

Favorite Things

My One Year of Thrifting came to an end on February 1st!  Yeah, Hallelujah, jump up and down and shake it all around!

I really thought I would immediately run out to a store to buy something, but that just hasn't happened yet.  No on-line shopping either. What happened to me?!

Over this past year, I have gotten some awesome things.  And I am more than proud to say that some of my favorite things are from Goodwill.  Take that all you people that think Goodwill is dirty and stinks (ok, maybe it does stink a little)!

This morning was full of....

snuggling as long as I possibly could with Macy

watching the sun slowly fill my bedroom

wishing that today was actually a Saturday

thankful that it was at least a Friday

creating a list of all the things I need to accomplish tomorrow

fearing the 9 degree weather outside
