When was the last time you felt like you needed to buy three porcelain elephants from Europe? At a cost of around $70 and they're definitely NOT a necessity AND you're about to head out for vacation?
Maybe it's because I just spent the past hour outside with the dogs and it's about 100 in the sun? Who knows? What I do know is I saw these and my heart sang! By the way..I moved our thermometer in the sun on our back porch to see how hot it was as it was 90 in the sun. It has gone beyond the hottest temp and is back at 60 degrees. Did the heat break it?
In totally UNRELATED news: Something (I think it's a cat!) is going to the bathroom in our firepit! In the sand! The dogs are continually drawn to it & I headed over there today and found...cat droppings. Good times, folks! I can FEEL the envy from some of you.
Also: Curtis the puppy: 5 Birds: 0. He has now killed five birds here in the past month. I couldn't talk about it for weeks because it was too upsetting. I have told a few friends that if these were Civil War times (anyone read "Cold Mountain" by Charles Frazier or did you see the movie with Nicole Kidman & Jude Law? She was starving on her farm until Ruby Renee Zellweger came & taught her how to feed herself, etc..) that Curtis could probably just keep the whole family going with his hunting. We have food, so it's very depressing. Aside from fake owls..feel free to let me know if you have any ideas..anyone?
I had posted this as one of my FAVE Pinterest finds about a month or so ago and...my hubby Brad surprised me by buying it for me! He said "I knew you'd never buy it for yourself, so I did."
Because I'm already all over the place with this post..why not go Balls To The Wall and just keep on with the unrelated everything?
I present to you November 2008. Grand Island, Bahamas. My sister and friend Eric a few days after our wedding. The Golden Girls are behind them playing cards. We loved that they were all vacationing together and in my mind I thought "We will all do this when WE are that age!"
Emerson. Same trip. He was five. He wore this life jacket pretty much 98% of the time. He was a nervous swimmer back then. He's really good now, but then...a bit scared and would tell Brad "Uncle Brad! Leave it on! This is NOT a toy!"
Emerson and his mommy. My sister Dawn.
Our wedding reception. On the way in. It was lovely. Em was the ringbearer. Look at that shirt! He still wears it for special school occasions. It always makes me laugh!
I've always loved a good nap! My old townhome. I think I felt awful this day & Brad brought me a bag of donuts, Oprah magazines and ibuprofen! Good times, Terri! I knew then that I COULD marry him. You've got to be able to care for people when they're down, or what's the point?
I leave you with Canada in the evening. Ahhh. We usually go every summer. We're headed to Colorado next week for a road trip instead. Fires will not stop us!
Seems like the perfect time for a lemonade with vodka EXCEPT that it's not even 2pm!
Did anyone watch the Tori Spelling craft show?!!
