May Day! May Day!

"It's May....It's May....The Lusty Month of May...That lovely month when everyone goes blissfully astray...."

I love to hear Vanessa Redgrave sing this song everytime I watch "Camelot." I love Julie Andrews, but Vanessa really gives this song the va-va-voom it deserves! (I added the video at the bottom of the post if ya want to watch it..)

Hooray for May! No more bad mojo here! We are making May Day baskets and May poles here today! Catherine will be crowned in flowers as our May Queen! We are celebrating and welcoming in some joyful and abundant new energy here at Bee and Rose today! May brings birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and Catherine's First Feis (Irish dance competition!) Lots to be thankful for this May!
A wish for May....

That's right! I want a pink beach cruiser bicycle! (hint hint, Chilly McLimpy)

I also want this...


I had the 70's version, but this was always my favorite one to play. I also want this....
This was my favorite doll! (How weird is it that I use this same font as my signature here!? Tween Caveboy pointed that out!) I loved all of the Dawn dolls! Anyone else have one?

Go get your May Day on, folks! Enjoy!

Happy may Day! I have a cruiser and I love it! It is so fun to bike around. You should get a little basket on the front too - perfect for carrying things.

XOXO

LOVE the bike and yes, i had a dawn. wasn't she the one whose arm you twisted to make her boobs grow? oh, no, that was skipper. but i am sure i had a dawn doll, too.
Momo Fali said…
I don't remember Dawn dolls, but I did have a pink bike like the one you want. Well, mine had a banana seat, but other than that...totally the same. Thanks for the memories.
I never had a Dawn doll...how weird is that?

That's funny about your signature. Must have been a subliminal thing! ;)

My hubby's birthday is this month! Had rain already today. So long as we dont get a nasty storm before those irises in the front yard bloom. Last year we had a nasty storm and they got wrecked before they bloomed out nicely.
Debbie said…

I also feel as my luck is changing with the coming of May! Except for the fact my mother-in-law is coming for 3 long months. Hey! You both live in the same state! Maybe you can make sure she doesn't leave it!
Vickie said…
Yay for May!! As you did for me, I am sending you some good vibes for the new month:)

May is the last nice month before 4 months of 100 degree weather. I'm in Phoenix.
Megan said…
Had to believe that it's already May! This year is zooming by!

I've never heard of or seen any 'Dawn' dolls. Hmmm...
Heather said…
I have something for you over at my blog. Check out the post, "Sticky balls" to see what it is.

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….

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

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…

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:)
