Did You Know Tuesday...Peace in the Kingdom Edition

Did You Know Tuesday is a new creation by me because I'm trying to get my bloggy groove back. Did You Know Tuesday is purely my lame way of writing a blog post because my brain function is at zero....Please accept my apologies in advance for any boredom you may incur while reading...Here we go... DID YOU KNOW... that peace has arrived at the magical land of Bee and Rose? No medical dramas playing out with Chilly...Tween Caveboy survived his 24 hour flu (though it was not pretty and Mommy didn't sleep for 2 days...)...Irish Dancer Girl lived through her grueling dance schedule last week....Mommy finally has time to blog...that in itself is a major miracle... sigh..... DID YOU KNOW... that my bloggy will be undergoing some construction soon?...As Chilly would say whenever trying to weasel out of trouble..."We ask that you bear with us during this transistion." Thanks! DID YOU KNOW... that apparently, Cat Butts are all the rage these days? I have a cat, Shadow, and

Friday Fragments: Confessions & Questions Edition

It's short and sweet today! I can hear your hallelujahs to the heavens already! lol! Just a few fragments this fabulous Friday! Join the Friday Fragments Fun over at Half Past Kissin' Time ! Let's rock this thing... . No More Name Calling... My kids have finally threatened me with torture if I don't stop calling them "Children of the Corn" ... (they don't know what the movie is about....they just think I've completely lost my marbles and made it up...) *********** The Perfect Red Dress I gasped out loud when I saw Cate Blanchett wearing this dress in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." It's lovely, isn't it? ************ Confessions of a Book-aholic I am about to admit something that might cause a few of you to fall right off your chairs, weep in sadness for me or maybe you'll think I should be committed to the local mental institution... I watched the movie "Confessions of a Shopaholic" yesterday...and wait for

Thankful Thursday...Memory Loss Edition

Yesterday, while driving to Irish dance, my mind was zipping through my list of 45 million things to do when all of a sudden, I started thinking about how nice it would be to have a butler ....which then made me think of this guy...(weird, I realize, but my mind is filled with lots of weirdness these days) Yes, that would be Mr. French....the world's first tv "manny". Back in the day he was called a butler, but seriously, he was all "manny." (Which would you prefer...a manny or a nanny?) I thought it would be so lovely to be greeted upon arriving home by my butler..."May I assist you with the 25 gazillion items that need to be brought in from the car, Madam?"...."Here are your keys, Madam"...(that alone, would be worth the six figure salary he asked for when I hired him...)...."How about a glass of tea, Madam?" Then he would whip up a fabulous meal while I relaxed with my tea. Sigh..... Then, being the mind wanderer that I am, I

Not Me Monday: Tuesday Edition

I am NOT living in a time warp....I am NOT posting a NOT ME Monday post on a Tuesday.....I would never be such a lame-o....(I did NOT keep picturing these creepy characters singing "Let's Do The Time Warp Again" while typing the words above....I do NOT have that song stuck in my head now....oy...) ************************************************************************************* I am NOT extremely frustrated after spending many hours trying to comment on various blogs only to have this happen....After typing my comment, I am prompted to select a profile. When I click on google account, I get nothing. I click on post comment...still nothing...I went around trying to spread my comment love all over the place and discovered my comments were NOT being received. ARGGGHHH! This isn't happening on every blog I visit, just the ones that appear to have comments embedded in a post. (Pop-up window comments are still working fine.) I've tried to select other profiles

My Breakfast at Tiffany's

Today's post was originally going to begin with a fabulous Wordle I tried to create to honor one of my favorite movies, "Breakfast at Tiffany's." However, my computer is not cooperating with me right now so just pretend you that what you see up there is a real Wordle and not this fake thingy I'm trying to pass off as one. If you have a moment, why not visit Shannon's Wordle Weekends at Last Shreds of Sanity to join the Wordle fun?! (I love making Wordles...not sure why "my precious" (aka computer) is being so persnickety this morning.....) Back to my Breakfast at Tiffany's.... If I were having breakfast at Tiffany's this morning, this is what I would order off of the "menu"... I'd start with some gorgeous key pendants....I love keys...I have them all over my home in all shapes and sizes... Then I'll have this.... and I should probably order these off the "menu" too.... and then I should have some dessert.... I
