It's a Birthday Luv Fest!

Happy Birthday, Miss Kitty!
(and yes, awards are here too...I promise!)

Today is my precious princess Catherine's 6th birthday! Six years ago today I was pleading with my doctor to "just get her out of me NOW!" (I really did say that...) This little bundle of joy loved my womb. Loved it so much that she hung out in there for an extra week! AN EXTRA WEEK!!! (In pregnant mom years that feels like 10 years.) Finally, she arrived with jet black hair, pale white skin and ruby red lips...just like a little Snow White! After a few days the black "mommy gave you too much hormone" hair fell out and soft fuzzy blonde sprouted through. Then all hair growth stopped until about age 3. That and no talking...I mean not a word except for an occasional grunt until 3. Then wham! Complete articulate sentences came pouring out of this kid!

Today I celebrate my sweet surprise! Yep, she was a surprise!!! I was 37 and thought I couldn't have anymore babies. But God always has a bigger plan! So this is for my peach pie! I love you, beautiful girl!!!!! (yeah, you are definitely worth the 345 extra tests I had to have because I was an "old" mom!)


Now... Miss Cat & Fancy Nancy

Barbie's New Pad...


I love presents!

Birthday Botox...

Congrats on your awards!!

When I read about your daughter not talking until three it made my heart soar. We are having such problems with Jillers speech, and your story gives me hope.

Love you!!Pam

Lori said…
You are so funny! hahaa I came to check out my award! Thank you my friend!! I've gotten that before but never posted it, I'm such a party pooper. I appreciate you thinking of me and allowing me to have a spot in the sacred 10!
I'm not sure why I wasn't "following" your blog....I thought I was?! Did you remove me or something? hahaa Well, I signed up because I want to be one of "the coolest in the land of blog"!!
I was just reading your "about me" and it could have been describing me.....up until the entertaining and jazz hands....whatever that is? I'm not an entertainer but I love the rest and of course I don't miss homeschooling anymore. :)
Have and great night and thanks again for the award!! (hug)

Love the hot pink Barbie pad too! Birthday Blessings!

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it!

Blogging is like taking a vacation to a place you never k…

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   

Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…
