A different kind of love affair…

I have something to get off my chest.  I have mixed feelings about this, but the heart wants what the heart wants.  Well {whisper} I’m cheating on my ol’ faithful! {gasp!}  While shopping at Michael’s yesterday I fell in love.  I was powerless to stop the feelings that overcame me.  I don’t think The Hubs will be all too thrilled with me, but I just couldn’t help it.  I had to do it.  There’s nothing necessarily wrong with my old one, but the new one is just so much more exciting, ya know?

I just HAD to buy this a-DOR-able little glue gun!

{my new love}

Ain’t it cute?!?!

If you recall, I married into my other glue gun, but at just $4.99 I just couldn’t leave this one at the store 🙂

A dump truck kind of wedding

Tonight The Hubs and I watched “Barbie in The Princess and the Pauper” with the kids {yep, M enjoys a good Barbie movie now and again}.  At the “happily ever after” end, of course they get married and ride into the sunset in a horse-drawn carriage.  M turns to me and says, “Did you and Daddy ride in one of those when you was married?”  I answered, “No, we rode away in a trolley.”  To which he responded, “What does a trolley look like?” I told him I’d find some pictures to show him.  He thought for a minute and said, “Well, I know what a dump truck looks like.”  I just had to laugh.  Yeah, buddy…kinda like that 😉   I just love how his little mind works–you never know what he’ll come up with next!

Making the best of the white stuff

School was cancelled yesterday {bummer!} due to the Big Blizzard of 2011…or something.  Yeah, there was a lot of snow, but it didn’t seem like a real true blizzard.  But maybe that’s because most of it happened during the night and I didn’t leave the house so I didn’t experience the roads.  Who knows?  Anyway, the roads must’ve been good enough for a Trail Blazer to get through because one of A’s friend’s dad drove over to pick A and her friend/neighbor E.N. up for a playdate.  {YESSS!}  Thanks J.I. for that 🙂  While A was gone, M and I headed outside to take advantage of the big piles of snow.  E.N. and her dad had dug a tunnel while shoveling the snow this morning and M was having a great time crawling through it {thanks K.N. for snapping this pic}!

{crawling through the neighbors' tunnel}

 After a while M decided he wanted to dig one of our own, so back across the street we trudged.  It was tricky finding a drift tall enough, but we did it.  Apparently my tunnel-digging skills don’t quite match up to B. N.’s, but I got the job done. 

{woohoo we made it through! Yes, the tunnel opening did get a bit bigger than this...}

M had fun crawling through and I even made it through a few times.  I had to wriggle through on my stomach and my claustrophobic tendencies kicked in giving me visions of being trapped underneath the collapsed tunnel, but other than that it was great 😉  And, despite the great amounts of snow and low temps, this mama managed to stay quite warm with all that digging!

I wish I was more embarrassed…

…but I’m just not.  Yes, tonight I spent 2 hours of my life with my girlfriends watching The Bachelor.   Most of our time was spent being face-buryingly embarrassed for the silly girls on the show, but I love my Monday nights with my girlfriends watching silly, silly shows like The Bachelor and talking about how we’d kill our daughters if they ever acted like that in public!

Hello Kitty Bikini?


Monkey A is notorious in our household for running 10+ degrees hotter than the rest of us.  With the AC blasting, she decided she was still too hot, so she stripped down.  At least she got the stickers positioned correctly, eh?

The Fish Ain’t Bitin’

{Where are the fish?}

Using a dismantled bow, Monkey M can’t understand why there are no fish biting in the rainwater collected in an overturned trash can off our back deck.  Not to worry, his active little-boy imagination conjured up plenty of {big!} fish on the end of his line!

Girly Man


{A man, a chainsaw and a paper skirt}

I got The Hubs a chainsaw for Father’s Day.  He’s like a giddy little boy with his toy!  Today it was too hot to wear jeans and he didn’t want his legs to get pelted with tiny pieces of wood so he found this {un}perfect alternative.  I can’t stop giggling!  So {un}manly!

Gettin' goofy

After a long day of traveling in the car with family, Monkey A and I get a little slap-happy in our suite!
