Cupid's Tea Party

I would like to begin by saying thanks to my bloggy friend, Kristin, over at The way it is ! She bestowed this lovely award upon me recently! She has a fantastic giveaway going on over there so please click here to check it out!

This award is given for "lovely and witty comments and for always knowing the right thing to say at the right time." The rules say share with 10 but being the crazy rule breaker that I am, I will be sharing it with 3...(remember I have kids that are starving, need educated..yada yada yada...) The awardees are.....drumroll....trumpets playing....angels singing...


Please go check these ladies out! They are fabulous bloggy gals! Spread your comment love amongst them!

Now on to Cupid stuff..

Valentine's Day has special meaning around here. First of all, there are hearts involved. As many of you know, Chilly had the big bypass a year ago. This is what I'm giving him for Valentine's Day....(special thanks to one of my bloggy BFF's, Marie over at Cpaphil Vintage Postcards for showing me this! Her blog is wonderful!)


It's a gentle reminder to STOP EATING GARBAGE!! Do you hear me, Chilly?! Stop with the coffee cake muffin from the quick mart on your way to work! Isn't the ginormous scar blazing down the front of your chest enough to remind you of this?? See how this little guy has a smile and is a healthy red color? That's because he eats a heart healthy diet, my friend! No quadruple extra cheese on his pizzas! And speaking of pizza, I DO NOT want to see you looking like this on Saturday when you don your Cupid outfit for me...(I realize he has a delivery box full of pizza...it's probably the quadruple extra cheese pies you ordered behind my back...just try to show a little restraint and not hijack the driver for a fast getaway to eat your precious pizza in secret...)


Ok...done with my husband rant...till he gets home anyway!

The kiddos and I are celebrating our V-day with a Cupid's Tea Party. We will eat some yummy treats, make Valentines for each other and exchange little treasures. Cat will wear her tutu and crown. (Want some fabulous tutu's? Check out Tutu's Bliss! Gorgeous tutus!!)

We'll have some red velvet cupcakes....

and some of these delicious chocolate
covered strawberries...

Maybe we'll whip up a special Love Potion punch! Jones Soda has a special promotion to customize your label and choose your flavor to create your own love potion! You could also pick up a few bottles of any cherry or strawberry soda and add your own labels. Kathy over at Kathy with a K did this with pink soda for a baby shower..too cute! Pink lemonade in fancy bottles work too! And of course, flavored teas in fancy pitchers are fabulous too!



We might bake some heart shaped cookies, and of course, Catherine must have her heart shaped pizza. (that you, Chilly, will have to stare at longingly...)

We'll play some fun games like Catch Cupid and Count the Kisses. (Catch Cupid...Cupid wears a belt with felt hearts attached that can be easily removed by the 'chaser' (think flag football.) Whoever grabs the most hearts from Cupid wins! I made this up all by myself!) Count the Kisses...fill a jar with Hershey Kisses...whoever guesses the amount wins!

We'll get out my scrap paper "collection", throw in a few doilies and make some cards. We'll annoy other family members with these...

Botox Lip Whistles (from Party City)

and these big red wax lips...



Here are a few treasures I found over at Fred Flare if you want to play Cupid...
Boo Boo Kiss Bandages!

Make Your Own Mix Tape USB Flash Drive!
(is this cool or what?!)


Rose Rings!
Voodoo Love Babies..get them here...


Go make your own Candy Hearts here! (Thanks to Zen Cupcake for sharing this little gizzy! I played with this all night!)





p.s. Word on the street is there is a Cupid Toile fabric used in bedding...It's deep red and tan...I want it! If anyone knows where this is, help a sister out and point me to it! Thanks!

p.s.s. I know there are lots of linkys! They're all worth checking out! I promise!

p.s.s. Thanks for sticking with me through my long posty today!

Oh and thanks... Baby J officially wants a red velvet cupcake. If I weren't SO lazy I'd drive on over to Sprinkles right now and buy two. Yes I said two. The minute Baby J gets his... his momma will want hers! hahahaa

Whooo's 100?

I am! This is my 100th post!

To say I am astonished and humbled by the incredible support of my blog from fellow bloggers, friends and family would be an ginormous understatement! I am truly, deeply grateful that ya’ll stop by and visit me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

(I had this scheduled to post at midnight, but for some reason, it didn't! I got up to check it about 1:30 am and discovered blogger's mischief! Sorry if you came by then!)

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it! It’s my 100th post and by the time you are done reading it, you’ll probably feel as old and tired as Rip Van Winkle! You know me and my long winded rambley-ness! (....the giveaway is here..I promise!)

So, this is what I’ve come to know about blogging in the last 100 days….

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…

Chilly Update...

I hate this disease with a passion...more on that in a moment...

First and foremost, there aren't enough words in the English language to convey my most sincere gratitude for the amazing love and support you've all shared with my family. I am completely overwhelmed and very humbled by it all. I've shared all of your comments and emails with Chilly and the kiddos. It has meant so much to us! Thank you, thank you and thank you again!

I wish I could write that Chilly is fine and coming home tomorrow. I wish I could go back to last Friday when every fiber of my being was screaming at me that Chilly was having a heart attack. I wish I would have pinned him to the ground and shoved an aspirin down his throat when he put me off about his symptoms. I wish he would have agreed to go to the ER...Sadly, I can't turn back time...

We were told today that Chilly has suffered a stroke in addition to a heart attack. These two events occured together...meaning, he had the stroke w…
