oh yes it is…..even Tina was out enjoying the weak rays of sun that were soaking into this chair’s padding  yesterday!!! smart cat….lol.


lol….my dd turned 13 on Wed. so we had a slumber party last night, 5 girls in total. We took them all out to Boston pizza for dinner, dropped them off and then picked them up when they were done. They rented scarey movies (remember that movie Misery with kathy Bates….delicious!! LOL), did facial masks and generally just goofed around. I did a mini photo shoot of her on the stairs and this is one of my favorite pictures….she’s too cute…lol.

….I hope you all have at least one of those friends that “got yer back” if you know what I mean…a friend who is there for you no matter what…who gives and receives hugs as needed….and when your having the shittiest of days they just know how to make you crack up….lol….if you have one of these kinds of friends count your blessing and hold them tight….they are a “gift”!!!!! 🙂

This is a gift I made for my closest friend….I gave it to her today in a black shadow box frame…. 🙂 (click image to view larger).
The papers, die cuts and tags etc. are by MME…. the paper kit including all these items can be found here, the title was made using AC Thickers and the quote was made using a teeny tiny alphabet from the Tin Box Creations “Block This!” stamp set…
the flower was one I had made previously from fabric etc. but to make it match I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist (Candy Apple Red, Burnt Red and Coffee Shop)…..love that stuff!

A man in the Spokane Albertsons tries to buy half a head of lettuce.   The very young produce assistant tells him that they sell only whole   heads of lettuce.  The man persists and asks to see the manager.  The boy says he’ll ask his manager about it.  Walking into the back room, the boy said to his manager, ‘Some asshole wants to buy half a head of lettuce.’ As he finished his sentence, he turned to find the man standing right behind him,  so he added, ‘And this gentleman has kindly offered to buy the other half.’

 The manager approved the deal, and the man went on his way.  Later the manager said to the boy, ‘I was impressed with the way you got yourself out of that situation earlier. We like people who think on their feet here. Where are you from, son?’  Canada, sir,’ the boy replied. ‘Well, why did you leave Canada?’ the manager asked  The boy said, ‘Sir, there’s nothing but whores and hockey players up there.’  ‘Really?’ said the manager. ‘My wife is from Canada.’  ‘No shit?’ replied the boy. ‘Who’d she play for?’

It seems a few people want to know where we are moving too…..well…I dunno….lol. We (meaning DH) wants to sell and buy down but we will still be staying in the same town. Maybe move into town on a lot. We purchased this home as an investment and he thinks the markets about right for a sale soooooooo we are listing it in a week or so. We will sign a three month contract, by appointment only, and see how that goes. 🙂
