These Are a Few of My Favorite Fiends....

All right...She's not really a fiend, but she sure is cute!  Miss Irish Dancer Girl performing at the Tucson Meet Yourself Festival...caught in mid-air! back to my original plan for this post....I love October!  I adore Autumn, Halloween and we have Irish dance performances at various festivals to enjoy.  We've been busy putting our spookalicious touches around the house to celebrate the season!  Thought I'd share a bit of the boo with you!

Even Snow White joins the Halloween fun at our house!

That's just a wee bit of the Halloween mojo we have going on!  Because I love this holiday so much, I'm hosting a Halloween ~ Autumn themed giveaway this week!  Check back in a day or two to see what freakishly fabulous goodies I have in store for you!  Also, a Perricone giveaway is coming soon too!

Happy Autumn!

Dawn, I am so glad you pulled out the Boo this year! You are a great one for going all out on the holiday stuff and I love seeing it! (and since it is at your house, I don't have to dust it or put it away, Yay!)

That photo of dancer girl is fantastic, she looks like such a graceful, and big-grown-up girl. How can you stand it? Now I just need to see the cave boy in similar flight...!

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!

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:)
