Yes, we also had my Grandma's 100th birthday party on Saturday, did i take my camera? NO! Me, the one who takes it EVERYWHERE in my purse, the one who is NEVER without it... i was sick!! There were cameras snapping everywhere so it's not like i can't get copies, but... my OWN camera... boo! When the party started a friend of my grandma's was by her & my Grandma says "you know i never wanted all of this" & her friend says "yeah, they just don't get it do they". Yeah, right you glory hounds! If you didn't see the pictures of my Grandma in a previous post where she is holding up her trophy (or body wash... whatever), go look at it & tell me this lady didn't LOVE the attention! It was bitter sweet when it ended & we all walked her back to her "unit", she was crying, we were crying.... it was hard. Today is her actual 100th Birthday! She made it! Way to go Gram!!

I survived a Japanese Gameshow... i mean a child's birthday party!
Here i am- we survived! Darling daughter had a great birthday & we are FINALLY done celebrating. The mister did this thing when i turned 39 where he spread it out for 3 days of celebrating & once you set the bar that high, you kinda gotta keep it up! Saturday was the "official" party- the park with 6 girls, a pinata and a tub of sawdust makes for nothin' but pure fun!Who invited the weirdo's? a tub of sawdust full of change & goodies oh i love her hair like this! you would have thought I'd driven stakes into her eyes, like i tried to pour gasoline on her, like i am the WORST Mother on the face of the earth for making pigtails with tulle bows no less! But, she survived... barely!after the park we took the girls for ice-cream, i'm not sure if their mothers want their kids posted on the internet, so here is the "witness protection approved picture"For the final day of celebrating, Darling daughter picked "Logan's Roadhouse"... no idea why, she only ever orders those chicken strips! But here she is in FRONT of everyone they're all yelling "YEE-HAW" at her! Notice her excitement, notice how she's egging them on, notice how she's THRILLED! No, really she is, this is just how she shows it!Back at home with some cake...
should i open a bakery? Isn't it pretty? Yeah, the Yorkie was her birthday gift, but when you're the ONLY child... Besides, you have to have gifts to open on your birthday! Is that owl pillow the cutest darn thing ever? Even though we just did her bedroom i've got to go back (TARGET!!) & get the quilt... thankfully the pink & brown in this set match her paint exactly! I told the Mister "it was meant to be", to which i got the look "of course it was"...Ok, yesterday i got this burr up my butt, a wild hair, inspiration... whatever you want to call it, but the island looked like this until 1:14pmand then it looked like this. Now, let me say this picture is bad & i just noticed a spot on the lower rt side that needs touched up. Don't my plumb counter tops look horrid, more horrid? I'm wondering if i shouldn't sand the edges & distress it like the other furniture i've painted black? What do you think?
Please also note: i'm a choosy MOTHER!
