I've always been quite fond of the alliteration. It's just a fun writing element, don't you agree? Plus when you are bored you can turn them into tongue twisters. I'm obviously also very fond of the tangent. You probably know that if you read this blog with an regularity or know me in person. My son Cole will even hold my shoulders and say, "FOCUS MOM!" Peyton unfortunately gets this little "problem" from me. The following is one example. Just one weee little drop in the bucket.
Last night, while eating cold cut sandwiches and chips for dinner because I had preheated the oven before dance, smothered chicken breasts with seasoning and BBQ sauce and promptly PUT THEM BACK IN THE FRIDGE. Needless to say 50 minutes later when the timer went off, the chicken wasn't cooked. Dang appliances. ANYWAY, we were discussing our upcoming Disney Trip. Peyton suddenly says, "APPARENTLY, Cory is adopted." (someone in her class) Not sure how that fit in with Disney but she's my daughter so I will not be hypocritical and say much about it other than to share it with the blog universe.
This all leads me to my flea market flower frogs. (I'm not sure how it leads me, but it does). I've been collecting the metal ones for a bit and I picked up two more recently when we were doing some birthday antiquing. The one with the cool white Bakelite base and the cage one are new. I LOVE how these little round ones form a flower frog cake! ;-) Doesn't take much to make this chick happy, huh? ;-) 5 is our family number so I have it stuck in there on my kitchen sink window sill. It makes me smile. My favorite is still that curli-que one. MAN I love that little bit of squiggly metal goodness!
I'm participating in a couple parties today, so check them out over there on the right under parties and see what other goodies everyone else has! Ohhh, BTW, I love the soft pink of the drying hydrangeas in the background of these photos...it's yummy.
ALSO, don't forget, if you want to be included in the blog roll over there on the right (it's still in draft), just drop me a line letting me know and I'd love to add you!
