Before I get to my tag, I need to share will all of you a beautifu post I read today....
Please visit my friend Clare for a dose of reality and inspiration!
picture from
Now ... more fun stuff: Melissa from Oh, My Darling tagged me with some fun questions, let's hope my answers have some amount of entertainment:
1. What's for dinner tonight?
2. What movie star would you choose to play you in a film of your life?
Isla Fisher .. for no reason other than that she's incredibly cute & fun in Confessions of a Shopoholic!
3. What's your biggest fashion faux pas?
I wear pajamas ... a lot ... not just inside my house. Can't help it - they're SO comfortable. I know - all of you fashion-bloggers are shrieking right now. Sorry.
4. Which song always puts you in a happy mood?
Blue October's "Life's Like A Jumprope" ... it makes me start jumping around :)
5. How crafty are you, and what has been your best project?
Not as crafty as ANY of you readers. Best project: It would have to be a card - I used to make cards a lot, and someday would like to make more ... Honestly , I was tempted to find a neat project online and post the picture as my own project - but my conscience got the best of me.

Now .... I tag:
Brand new blogger Barb at Barbs Heart Strokes
Desiree at Simply Simon

Have fun girls ... grab those 5 questions and list your answers :)
Everyone ... have a great weekend!


  1. Great answers. I liked Isla in 'Confessions....' too but liked the books better. Have a great weekend.

  2. wow - your blog is awesome and very powerful! I skipped here from butts and ashes blog.

  3. Thanks so much!!! I loved reading this and I too, love Isla Fisher :) (working on my post).
    Happy and lovely weekend,

  4. Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. Tell your daughter I said hi. tell her I said that guilt is the worst thing a mother should feel unless she has major reasons (I would say a cocain addiction in this case counts) to feel this way. If your daughter has trouble breast feeding that is not a reason.
    She can e-mail me or contact me if she wants.

  5. I love isla Fischer! I used to watch her when I was a teen on Aussie Soap Operas.

    PJs are sooo comfy, I agree! I would wear them all day if I could!

  6. wow! your story is amazing. thanks for stopping by my blog.
    can't wait to come back...

    Thank you, my dear & new friend!


  9. I have missed being with you here in blogland....It is good to be back. We all share so many things, I felt a little lost.
    Thank you for your comment, it made me feel so wanted. I love your answers on the tag...I love to wear my PJ's too, I have gone to the store in them and find others doing the same.
    I love summer, it is a time when things are relaxed here in Ole Idaho. I am a Southern California girl and wore shots year it would not work, we get too cold.
    Missed you very much, Hugs Mary
