The time has come...

I've been thinking about it for a long time and today's the day I quite thinking and make the change...this blog is moving to a WordPress platform.

Same me, same quirky posts, same gaps in blogging, but in a format that's a bit easier for me to manage.

So update those blogrolls, readers, rolodexes and cavewalls and follow me to

...not too different...just change one little word and you've got it.

All the old posts are there waiting for you to join, even a new post with a layout and a funny video...come on let's go play.

Friday Fill-Ins

actually on Friday...I know I'm shocked too


1. Good times: good times. (I always think it should be a pair and this phrase always reminds me of my sister.)
2. I need to clean my home.
3. Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?. Go on I dare you to try and come up with something else.
4. _Little by little, my house is looking more festive.
5. Once more for old time's sake.
6. when will it end?
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to watching Glee again, tomorrow my plans include cleaning (blah) and Sunday, I want to bake and craft!

Real world Math

Uber cold weather = short walks for the doggie
Short walks + Genetic Energy = bored doggie
Bored Doggie = Destructive Dog
Destructive Dog = Unhappy Mom
Unhappy Mom + Guilty Mom = New toys for Doggie
New Toys for Doggie = smaller bank balance for mom, but a happy dog

Good thing he's cute!


And to think my HS geometry teacher said I'd never be good at math, either he was a genius at reverse psych or a total ASS, 20 years later I still choose the latter.

Stay warm my friends!

Going on a Horsie Hunt

Our mission was to find some horses and we met a couple of beautiful creatures as we enjoyed a fabulous fall day. I knew as soon as I saw the red and brown papers from Jenni Bowlin they would be perfect for this page. So happy with the way it turned out. Now if only I could get my hands on some more of these corrugated letters from Jillibean, yes I know I have a paper crimper and could make them myself, but where's the fun in that?

Friday Fill-ins and a Layout

1. You get what you deserve.
2. You gotta fight for your right to party. (yep, vintage beastie boys proof my brain can be pretty random)
3. It's hammer time.
4. That my brain is thinking in musical answers is pretty ridiculous!
5. I feel more of the holiday spirit this year than the past few.
6. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a...goodnight! (ok a little early on that one)
7. And as for the weekend, I vegged Friday night, today my plans include breakfast with Houston and a little crafting and Sunday, I want to watch the Broncos hand it to the Chiefs!

And now for a little layout, pretty happy with the way this one turned out. So many times, I'm afraid to cute paper up, it's just too cute...That was the case with the blue gingham, the other side looks like a reading primer from the 50's...after being in the stash for a couple of months, I finally allowed myself to cut it, and I'm so glad I did.
