Where Does She Get This Stuff!

I have to admit, I'm an addict.  To my cousins' blogs that is.  You see, I apparently have two (and sometimes three) very witty cousins (Jess - Les, you know who you are!) that keep me constantly amused with the random musings on their blogs.  I find that I have to stop by at least every few days to see what new tidbits they have to offer me.  The great part is that I am always guaranteed a smile and usually even a small chuckle.  It's just a great and uplifting part of my day.

But at the end of it all I invariably find myself wondering, "where to they get this stuff!"  I mean, I think I live a pretty full and interesting life,  (okay, that might be a lie, I'm a stay at home mom with a 6 month old.  Exciting these days means I got to shower this morning.  But I digress) but I find that I just don't have half of the fun things to talk about that they do.   

I mean who would ever think to post about Newsies (sheer genius by the way), strange British desserts, or really sweet British YouTube clips?  (That last one was Les's not the cousin who is currently living in England) 

And the pictures!  I have to say, the main reason that you haven't seen anything new from me in quite a while is that all the pictures that I posted in my last post took me 3 days and several tries to get up.  I don't see how they do it!  And Jess, do you really just have that camera with you 24/7?  Because some of the shots that you get are just fabulous.  Like the crumbs of your weird British pie for example.  

And it's not that I don't try.  I sit down to write, all inspired by what I've seen and then......Nothing!  Because at the end of the day does anyone really want to hear about whether or not I've been puked on that day (usually yes) or the state of my daughter's diapers?  I'm thinking no!

I guess that I'll just have to try and do better.  Because averaging a whopping one or two posts in a whole month is just sad!

And I'm not even going to try for a picture.  I'll just do another post and stick it there!

Check out my Slide Show!

It's Great to Have Friends!!!!

This past weekend me wonderful friend Chris came in to visit.  And all the way from Tulsa too! She and I have been friends for a long time now and I always look forward to her visits.  She is one of those friends that it just doesn't matter how long it goes between visits.  We are able to pick up like we just saw each other yesterday.  Love that!
Anyways,  I wanted to share some pics of our time together.  You will quickly see what the focus of the visit was!
First up we have a practice run for the world's cutest Easter Bunny!  Just look at those cheeks!

Now the first bunny was good, but this one is probably one of the cutest pictures that I have ever seen!  (Not that I am partial or anything!)  On a side note, I can't take credit for this photo masterpiece, her Aunt Chris took this picture.  

Here we have my DD and her daddy a the pottery place.  I swear, that child had him trained from minute one.  But I really don't think that's a bad thing!

Here is my DD with her Aunt Chris.  You think she is just sitting there sweetly, but really she's plotting the best way to get hands on the paint.  The adults might have won this round on that front, but I hold no hopes for hanging on for the shut out.

And in the end Mommy just couldn't resist snagging a few kisses of her own!  Can you blame me?  Of course, my DD was only willing so long as I let her use my fingers as teethers.  Can't blame her.  I have to say that they do look mighty tasty!
