my favorite things

i love silver jewelry, especially this piece from the
mignon faget jewelry collection.
I own several of her pieces and would never
be able to narrow down my favorite one

i love, love, love collecting sea shells.
they are beautiful, natural and each one is unique

smitten with my crisp great white dishes

amaryllis and Iris are my favorite flowers.
I have a beautiful tattoo of an amaryllis on my right shoulder

what did the momma tomato say to the baby tomato... they crossed the street?  "Ketchup!"

And so it goes...
I've been very busy since my last post dated back two weeks ago. I am steadily keeping up with my school work and about mid-way through the semester.  Working 12 hour night shifts has provided to be difficult after the 6th shift, especially when I mistakenly try to squeeze in a night out to see a concert with some friends.  Who do I think I am? My ability to function on no sleep and a diet of cherry cokes and vodka disappeared somewhere back in 1998.  

Tonight Miss A and I decided to do a little mommy-daughter bonding and catching up.  We thoroughly enjoyed some ribs and Rango, which by the way is a very good movie.  My favorite line from the movie is "A man can not walk out on his own story".  My favorite line from my conversation with Miss A..."Mom, I'm too skinny for my skinny jeans".

fabulous friday

I am ready for the weekend, 
the feeling of spring in the air, the smell of fresh cut grass
and the warm rays of sunshine in a cloudless sky.
A new season always brings renewed spirit and energy.
See ya on the flip side!

yours 4-ever

Recently going though some old pictures of my parents with my mom, I came across this little gem.  For some reason it's one of my favorites.  My Mom and I put together a really great photobook encompassing my parent's 40 years together, using which was LOTS of fun. 
I added a little effect using

birthday boy - part deux

since today is his actual birthday...
Happy Birthday my sweet baby Owen
I miss the little baby toes and baby button nose, but he is growing into a wonderful little boy whom I love with all my heart.  He is my sweet boy who still loves his sippy cup of milk at bedtime and can't fall asleep without me by his side.  He can write and spell his name, knows colors, shapes and numbers and can't wait to start school just like his big sister.  His favorite food is SALAD and loves push-ups and yellow cookies (yellow oreos).  Everyday is full of lots of hugs and kisses from Owen and lots of "I love you mom".  Since it is his birthday, I'm gonna stop there and not mention that he's also addicted to our Wii and loves to chase his little sister around the house trying to tackle her, Oh wait, I just did.  
Being a mommy is very rewarding and often times not-so-rewarding too, and hectic, hair-raising, mentally draining, and so on, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.
