geisha girl

here she is...
the littlest geisha :)

kimono, shoes, and umbrella.
straight from china town.

not sure how we will top this costume.
love it. love it. love it.

hugs to grandma, grandpa, and aunt melissa for making her so stinkin cute :)



she makes me laugh.
if nothing else does, she will :)

here are 2 conversations from tonight...

conversation A. {lilly in bathtub... me wearing a bowling green tshirt, with orange lettering}

lilly: wass your shirt say?
me: bowling green.
lilly: no! it says home depot!

conversation B. {lilly, just having gone poopy in the toliet, and admiring her work}
lilly (to daddy): chicken nuggets!

infact, she likes to name her poopy, and does so pretty well.

she does this often, though this is the 1st time dave got to experience it on his own. (i think he was beginning to think that i was the one handing out the titles...)

here are some other names, all appropriately given.

"2 snakes!"
"alligator..." (must have had peas for dinner...)

she is a fun one :)

mine are a bit more random...
but they do make me smile at the moment.

10 things that make me smile.
1. caramel apples
2. milk duds in trick or treat portions
3. strawberry shortcake ice cream on a stick things
4. healthy choice ice cream sandwiches
5. potatoes
6. getting to crop this friday!
7. lilly's conversations (which are too too funny...)
8. fall TV (even if half the shows i watch aren't on right now due to sports)
9. visiting with friends in BG
10. going to a wedding of a friend i met in elementary school (a beautiful wedding... hope to post pics sooner or later)

and im glad to know that 7 people read and left comments on my last blog post :) thanks ladies... it is nice to know that someone is reading. (((HUGS)))

happy week :)



ah. are you there?
anyone reading this?
so, im know im not so exciting these days...

no great scrappy stampy work to show...
no crazy work or life stories.

barely any comments on my posts...
ah that's ok... i'll blog to humor myself :)

maybe ive been booted off your blog reading, blogline lists... lol.
(if you dont have bloglines yet, and you read a lot of blogs... you will really enjoy having it!)

so anyways... still feeling cruddy, but i've actually managed to cook 2 nights in a row... (something i don't think has happened in the past 2 months...)

here is the recipe to last night's meal... courtesy of Martha :)

Spaghetti Carbonara

very tasty. very simple. and it seemed better for you than fettucine alfredo (another one of my favorites...)

tonight i made Reuben's... our way (which really isnt 'our' way, but the way of a lady i used to teach with...) here's how you stack it up.

*rye bread (buttered on one side)
*corned beef
*swiss cheese
*coleslaw (that's the sneaky part... instead of sauerkraut...EWWWW)
*thousand island dressing
*rye bread (buttered on one side)

Grilled in a big pan on the stove... delicious!! I could eat this once a week!

alright, so there you go... another boring post by me :)
so those of you who enjoy food, may have something to reply about :)

happy week everyone :)

oh, and forgot to say... our almost FREE dale and thomas popcorn came the other day. now we are on popcorn overload... and that is a good thing :)



i've been tagged.
twice actually.
so i figure i better hop to it.

the first.

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether or not they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your LiveJournal/blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to.

alright, so i could only come up with 5 without stressing myself out... so i'm cheating a bit, but here is the list...

1. Sexyback – Justin Timberlake
2. Buttons - The Pussycat Dolls featuring Snoop Dogg
3. Crazy - Gnarls Barkley
4. London Bridge - Fergie
5. What Hurts the Most - Rascal Flatts

the second.

The rules:
1. List 5 weird things about yourself or your pets.
2. Tag 5 friends and list them.
3. Those people need to write on their blogs about 5 weird things, and state the rules, and tag 5 more people.
4. Don’t forget to let the people you tag know by posting a comment on their blog!

here we go...

1. my maiden name is the same name of the town i 'grew' up in.
2. i like all kinds of music. really. i pretty much like everything.
3. i am attracted to snoop dogg, and scar face from grease :) teehee. that's weird, right?
4. i have braces. lol...
5. i can be obsessive compulsive...

...nothing too weird i guess... lol.

if you haven't done these yet, and you want to, consider yourself tagged :)



we took lilly skating for the 1st time this past weekend.
dave bought her a tiny pair of Graf skates (same brand as his of course). (don't pay attention to the prices... it's sick. and lilly's are an old pair off of ebay) public skating prices are a bit of a rip... but oh well, lilly is growing up in a skating family, so i'll have to get used to it :) we have to have fun every now and then...



remember that popcorn that i posted about JUST yesterday?
well today, the UPS man drops off this box.

to lillian.
from aunt melissa.
from Dale and Thomas Popcorn of NYC.

in that box.
9 bags of delicious popcorn.
in an adorable crate.

thank you aunt melissa :)


almost FREE popcorn...

Dale and Thomas Popcorn

...this is the BEST popcorn EVER.

my sister had 2 bags waiting for us in NYC when we visited her.
we ate that and went and got more while we were still there.

i've been wanting to order some...

and looky here

must be time to order some :)

only $2.95 a bag, for shipping and handling.
TOTALLY worth every penny.
i'd even spend full price, and you all know how i am with money ;)

if you like popcorn, please. treat yourself.
believe me, you'll be happy you did.

if you aren't so much into popcorn... get a bag or two and give them as a gift.
the receiver will thank you.

ok... off to order mine :)
