Dear So and So...Good Clean Fun Edition...

So I'm a bit early (like 4 days early) on the "Dear So and So..." post...The story of my life...I'm either too early or too late...sigh....


Join the fun brought to you by the fabulous Kat at 3 Bedroom Bungalow!
Dear Children Who Live in My House...

Cat...While I realize that Polly Pocket and her friends love hanging out in your room with Draculaura and her pals, I don't think they enjoy being trampled on by giants...especially female giants with hormone issues. Seriously, they might end up maimed or as amputees if they're not careful.  Teen Caveboy...guitar picks are not like rose petals to be scattered across the floor in some sweet gesture of love...PICK UP YOUR STUFF, OFFSPRING or it may turn up missing...just sayin'....
With all my love,
Mommy

Dear Booty and Behind...
Just a note of thanks for finally sitting down after ruining the Tegan and Sara portion of the Paramore concert for us.  (I was standingbehind you, Colossal Ginormous Dude when I took this phot…

Are You There, Oprah? It's Me, Dawn....

Ok...let's review the list of reasons I need a fabulous makeover and spa getaway...all courtesy of Oprah, of course...


Exhibit A....I recently doused my freshly styled hair with lavender/vanilla scented febreeze...in my defense, I thought it was my hairspray...it didn't even register that my hairspray is actually a pump bottle...nope, I just grabbed it and went to town...It even took me a few minutes to realize that my hair was wet and smelling like a lavender field in France before the horror of my actions set in...

Exhibit B...I was excitedly telling Irish Dancer Girl (age 7) that I'd found the perfect costume for Halloween...Sue Sylvester from Glee!  Boom!  Easy!  Just slap on a track suit, grab a megaphone, throw on a short blonde wig, and allow my snarky sarcasm to flow freely from my lips...it's beautiful...right?  Nope...Irish Dancer Girl just looked at me and said, "uh, isn't she taller than you...a lot taller than you?...and...(long pause...while she lo…

Back in the Saddle Again...

The last few weeks have flown by in a blur. School activities, the medical rounds with Chilly, and the very unexpected passing of my Aunt Lil have made for a stressful time around here.  I remember spending hours as a child copying Aunt Lil's handwriting because I wanted mine to be as lovely as hers.  I will miss her with my whole heart. My heart aches deeply for my Uncle Ben who has lost his soulmate and for my Dad...she was his sister.




As always, music has again uplifted our spirits during this difficult time.  Connor and I (along with his best friend) headed up to Phoenix to see Paramore in concert a few days ago.  It was simply AWESOME.


                                                  (Connor..on the right)


We had amazing seats (as you can see from my photos!) I've been to many, many concerts, but this one takes the cake! This band knows how to rock the crowd! It was a fabulous time, and I'm so glad Connor hounded me relentlessly until I agreed to get tickets months ago!…

It's What's Inside that Counts

Whew!  Company is gone....school is officially underway at our house...my menopausal brain continues to short out regularly (why did I come in this room again?  how did I get to this part of town?)...it's back to normal at the Smith house.


Keepin' it short and sweet today...found a little somethin' for Chilly...


Who wouldn't want an adorable cuddly kidney to squeeze at bedtime?  Here Chilly...for you...


Yep...urine in my thoughts, Chilly...hope you're having a pee-ceful day....


I didn't realize how adorable my own organs were until I saw this last night...






This is my intestine!  Isn't she cute???  Apparently, she loves it when I drink my Yakult probiotics beverage daily!  Awww...


Bet ya' didn't know how cute your insides were!  And talented too!  Mine blows bubbles...really...it's on film!  Check it out...my intestine made a commercial!





You're welcome...I know...you couldn't have gone another minute without seeing that....


Have a lovely day!
