And the Oscar goes to....................... boys who were very bored, yet creative. Maybe Spielberg started this way?

If you're watching and happen to be a member of the academy, feel free to nominate this for 2008's short animation category!


  1. This new store to buy fresh produce
  2. smelling clean laundry......especially whites
  3. 'teasers' that spring will eventually arrive - not today SEE 11
  4. fresh home made (not by me) ricotta cheese
  5. that my kids are independent and can get ready on their own
  6. a good cup of coffee (okay so what if I love this EVERY day?)
  7. comfy pajamas (but they MUST be cute)
  8. waking up early & having some me time
  9. my oldest who watched the Oscars and dished with me
  10. finding money in the dryer
  11. we just woke to 3.5 MORE inches of snow!

Friday Funny

Sometimes my dh and I enjoy breakfast together on Friday mornings. It's always nice to reconnect and have a real conversation about life.

This morning he starts telling me about this 'great deal' he got on skylights and how he EVEN gets to make payments on them for the next 12 months. (Those of you who know my dh and the long list of projects he has for our house KNOW my eyes are rolling by now). So after I entertained him by asking all the where, what, and whens about his newly devised project, I quickly changed the subject by saying........

You know, I bet if you went to the jewelry store right now you could buy something equally as expensive that would involve LESS work, MORE return on your money, make your WIFE happy, AND still get the 12 month payment plan.

He was NOT amused.

Friday Funny

I've decided to post 1x per week about something during the week that strikes my 'fancy'. If you don't see a Friday Funny, either nothing humorous is happening in my life or that nasty old age fog has crept in again and stole my last functioning brain cells.

Okay, this weeks' funny:

'Bath In a Day' company truck (you know those companies who install a complete tub/shower/tile surround in ONE day?) parked in my neighbor's driveway.

For FOUR days now. Must be one heck of a bathroom!?!

Sock Curls!

Okay, got this idea from a friend (Thanks Tara) and decided to give it a whirl. My Diva had trouble sleeping on the socks (sigh) -- she also has trouble keeping her eyes open for a flash LOL.
This is her right at bedtime last night.

This morning as I woke her up (I know blackmail pics for later)

And this morning after taking out the socks.

I'm anxious to see how long the curl holds.

Such a cute profile!

Who's counting?

Nearly 12 inches = one FUN snow day!

Snow Day for Scooter

Doing his best Ninja Turtle impression

If I pose nicely will you put me back into my tank?

Say Cheese!

When you're as beautiful as me you must learn to deal with the Paparazzi

The End!

Who am I?
