Linking up with the always delightful Katie & Jena
THIS ~ is my friend Nancy who passed last year..
I spent the weekend in the Bay area at her birthday party celebrating her life..
I miss her.
THAT ~ We all had a fabulous time toasting her & sharing funny stories..
I miss her quirkiness.
THIS ~ I got to hang out with a couple of friends I haven’t seen in 25 years..
seriously..there’s never a good excuse to let 25 years pass by without a phone call, text or visit
do it today
THAT ~ I made 2 new wild & crazy friends.
THIS ~ Had lunch at The Madonna Inn on the way up.
Super awesome place, you must stop by if you ever have the chance..
So much fun
Pink sugar on the table..how cool is that?
and a rock candy stir stick with my iced tea!!
THAT ~ I’ve had a headache since Monday, I think I have a sinus infection & I don’t want a sinus infection cause I’m getting all my vintage (I was going to say old but went with vintage instead) fabric from the attic so I can start sewing my very own designer baby clothes & I am way too busy to get/be sick…
Monkey Monkey Underpants
THIS ~ I have a book club meeting in one week & I have not even started the book..
I have watched at least 20 hours of Pretty Little Liars this past week..
THAT ~ My purple sunflower popped while I was away..

dude, I am exhausted.
I'll save the stories for another time.
Happy Texture Tuesday!!
I love linking up with Kim Klassen cafe & playing with her amazing textures.
This week's theme is Downton inspired the Downton Abbey series..
just not feeling the show..
I watched an episode..
(loved seeing Professor Mcgonagall)
but, don't get what all the fuss is about.
but, LOVE these textures!!
This is my amazing daughter & adorable granddaughter wrapped in kk_cora & kk_edith.

I've definitely been a tad MIA lately..
lots going on..
I've been doing a lot of thinking..
trying to find my online niche..
as much as I enjoy reading the blogs I've found..
we don't share the same..
we're just not in the same place..
let's face it..
at 56 years old..
I make two 23 year olds..
I've been a newlywed..
(seriously..I can't wait to read some of your blogs in 30 years)
I've been pregnant..
(3 wonderful times)
well..you get the idea..
as fun & interesting as these blogs are to read..
I don't fit..
I've been trying to figure out what I want my blog to say..
what voice to use..
where do I belong?
I haven't found it yet..
but I will..
I'll be around..
here & there..
trying this on..
& a bit of that..
looking for my fit.
As for now..
I'm linking up with Kim Klassen's for Texture Tuesday
because I love photography..
& I love her textures..
& her blog..
& her art..
& so many other things about her.
using her textures..
& her theme for today..
I took this photo of my gorgeous daughter & her handsome hubby on their wedding day..
(that's her MOH's cute face peeking through)..
cropped it & added a few textures to turn it into this..
Used kk_return & kk-paperstainedmusic

We put the phone in your bathroom for emergencies, please don't answer it when you are..
Dear Bathroom Scales..
Was hoping for a slightly lower number but..
I hate you!
I hate you!! I hate you!! I hate you!!
Your lack of organization..
your complete lack of the itsy-bitsy-ish-bit of empathy..
your snippy attitude..
makes me want to seriously punch you..
but..I got what I needed..
and you & I not need to see each other for a very, very long freakin' time.
My Dearest Lauren..
I love you.
I'm a bit sad to see you go, we've been good together.
I am so frickin' proud of you this month!!
YOU DID IT!!
You stuck to your plans & followed through!!
Good for you..
February will only be bigger, better & brighter.

Linking up with the captivating Katie for This 'N That Thursday..
Because I woke up with THIS song playing in my head...
I've decided THAT today is unofficially Matchbox Twenty Day.
THIS ~ I saw them in concert & they were awesome!
THAT ~ Had seats on the floor..
which would have been amazing if..
they were front row seats..
or..I was 6'4.
THAT-B ~ was excited when I heard Alanis Morissette was opening for MBT..
she was awful..
THIS ~ is my favorite MBT song..
THAT ~ but..my favorite concert EVER..
yeah, I know, you're shocked..
the concert was absolutely awesome..
THIS ~ oooops..
back to Matchbox Twenty..
THAT ~ love this song too..
and this one..
this one too..
Happy Matchbox Twenty Day!!
