Happy Birthday/Merry Christmas to Me!

July 31, 2008

Yeah, yeah, I know… neither occasion happens until Q4’08 (d’oh! too much time working in tall, shiny buildings!)…

But, my mommy loves me soooooo much that she bought me this pretty-pretty early 😀

I used to mindlessly pet it while I watched “The Dukes of Hazzard” on their black and white TV with my cousin Car-Lee!

    ** Note to readers – if you love something that belongs to a friend or family, do not hesitate to tell them that you want it when they kick off 😛 Hey, it’s better than having to eBay for things you could have had already had you just asked! HA!

  3. […] I need to replace the lamp in my FABULOUS new Horsey Homage to Nana & Papa, and I plan on relying heavily on the Master DIY’er, BAS (Beautiful Aunt Susie, for the […]

  4. […] miss my mom’s parents something fierce and I find myself trying to reconnect to objects of theirs because I’m terribly sentimental.  I can’t imagine the hours my mom, my brother and I […]

  5. […] awesome, even The Child had to admit she was wrong! October 6, 2008 Haley has moved from scoffing me to trying to plan my untimely demise so that it can be hers […]
