Vicky Christina Barcelona

Thursday night...great friends, food, wine and movies! We watched Vicky Christina Barcelona...if you haven't seen it, it is great!


 We were celebrating Teresa being in town, Lori's upcoming big move to Barcelona and Becca's upcoming trip to Barcelona!
Don't ask...just watch the bananas from Costco...they have fruit flies that LOVE wine!

Willow, Wolfie and Addy

 Willow was beaming with excitement.  Wolfie and Addy are here!!  Our dear friends are in town for a visit.  We miss them so much but we are so glad we get to see them several times a year.  I think a trip to the Bay area to see them is in store soon!  There is something about that Willow and Wolfie. They have some soul level connection :)

Halloween candy and netflix....trampoline and blankets...Halloween candy and netflix... trampoline and blankets...











 Then Teresa brought home Happy meals :)
Looking forward to tomorrow!




Joy, Joy, Joy!

A Couple of Weeks Gone By...

It is amazing how time flies when you are having fun!  When did November get here? Things are growing and changing around here so much!

Some of the things we have been up to...
More cooking! ...this time a Giant Puff Pancake :)


Which I hear was quite tasty...I was doing a cleanse and could not have wheat     :( I think this is a keeper for future breakfasts...maybe add some blueberries or strawberries?

It is getting colder and that means "new" uniforms at work :) The collar up was his bosses idea.. Hey? that was the style back when I was a kid!

We have had fun making salt crystals.  ever heard of Mrs Stewart's Bluing? I had not heard of it before this project...but you can get it in the laundry section of most grocery stores..






 
My hot man and his beater truck...god why does he love that thing? I would not even know where to start with me of the projects he has done to that truck...removing the truck bed? Well, interesting, except our front yard kind of looked like Samford and Son for the day...{you can here the theme song playing now}

he had some help putting it back on...





Balloon ghosts... a fun project that soon became my project... That turned into Day of The Dead sculls!
"I don't like this...it's too messy and I just finished peeling the glue off my hands from the last project"

ok...so they were really messy because I improvised with the supplies...

But I think they turned out cool :) Still a work in progress...









Life is sweet :)
