Been meaning to document my ever growing collection of birdies
...this started on accident, I had picked up one because of its color...then I saw another one that I thought was cute day found a picture I LOVED...

and before I knew it I became an official 'bird lady'

and this guy got shoved down the couch and lost his beak

and these next 2 guys caused quite the argument between my honey and I.  We were on a trip to the coast at an amazing store called 'Feather your Nest', when I picked these ones out to bring home.  Honey made a remark about them being too chubby for his tastes and that he preferred the skinnier birds!!:O!!!  Excuse me?  and what is wrong with  plump ?  So skinnier is better?  He knew he was in deep...and I'm sure the workers were curious as to why we were laughing so hard in the checkout line...
got these pictures for $1.00 @ a yard sale!!!

and there they are!

1.  Sooooooo  miss my husband on nights when he is away for work.  I get all sentimental and mushy.  I am pathetic and a scardy cat .  I have so much respect for military wives ( Love you Crystal)

2.   Been working on a little scrapbook all about Honey and I.  Answering questions regarding each other, etc., to mark our 10 year anniversary next summer!  Crazy how fast time goes...and my honey just loves answering the lamo questions I come up with:)...

3.  My house is a disaster.  My tidiness is so futile in a house with four kids ( and a husband;0))  Auntie Robyn used to have a sign that said cleaning house while raising kids is like shoveling snow in the middle of a snowstorm-yep-that sums it all up!

4.  In love with the shoes I just ordered from Forever21,cute strappy teal wedges with a flower!   Can't wait to get 'em!

5.  2 little monkeys are green snot nosed and coughing, had to cancel the first book club meeting :(  Praying H1N1 stays away...

God Bless,

Today's 5 Things...

1.  Happy birthday to Lailee, my niece, and Cole and Jessie, neighbors and my kids best buddies!

2.  That german choc. cake Orenda made was AMAZING.

3. Monkey #1 informed me he'll be asking Santa for a DSI...I'm afraid he will be sorely disappointed since Santa thinks dsi's are too expensive, inappropriate and just not happenin'

4.  Midway through Portrait Of A Lady by Henry James and thinking that he is one fabulous writer.

5.Monkey #3's blood work came back clear, now next we'll see an orthopedic specialist

God Bless,

Okay so I have finally "prettified" my blog to where I feel more comfortable writing!  It will be under construction here and there as I learn to improve it                                     ( I am a complete computer moron!)

So I will do a "5 THINGS" list on my posts, tell you something you don't know about us/me, whats going on in our lives, etc.


monkey #3 finally had some blood work done today to see if maybe anemia is the cause of the leg pain & exhaustion he's had since he was 1 1/2.  We will get the results tomorrow.  He was such a little trooper, no tears or anything.  The first time I had blood drawn I puked on the phlebotomists shoes :)! 

2.  I am TIRED, and yes, I am always tired, but especially right now, just want to sleep...

3.  Thinking about all our veterans, their sacrfices and their familie's sacrifices.  What a blessing they are and I pray they know the gratitude we as a nation have for them.

4.  I      CAN. NOT. WAIT.  to have a storage shed built and get all this JUNK off our front porch, tired of looking like a bunch of rednecks!

5.  I really need to get healthy...With the last pregnancy I just couldn't keep up and ate worse and couldn't exercise...and I haven't had the energy to start again.  That darn cyclical affect, need to exercise to feel good , don't feel good enough to excercise...

God Bless, Mandy
