All is well with the world!

Drew {because she is RAD!} sent me
a giant package of the best dishes


I now have totally forgotten about the cabinet debacle because


Hannah Montana!!!
Mardi Gras!!!
Strawberry Shortcake!!!
Tiki Guy!!!
Cute Dog!!!
My Little Pony!!!

How can I be sad eating on these?

Thank you so very much Drew.
You really made me smile and laugh today.
Plus, my kids are STOKED!

Now it is time for Me! Me! Me!

Easy questions today.
I am too giddy about my rad new dishes.
Plus I am meeting a group of new people tonight and trying not to have a panic attack.

Do you have siblings?

I have a younger brother who lives nearby with his wife and sweet little girl.

Do you have a favorite author?

I am a nerd and a brat.  I hate almost everything that I read.
Plus I am pretty sure that my book club hates me for this month's selection.

But my favorite book of all time is
A Farewell to Arms
by Ernest Hemingway.
I read it every year.

The best book that I have read recently is
Crazy Love
by Francis Chan
It messed me up  in the best possible way.

Were you born and raised a Cali girl?

Yes.  Born in Orange County.
Lived here every minute of my life sans a little detour to Missouri for my freshman year of college.
That is a whole extravaganza in itself.

I know you got a new camera.  What camera did you get?

My husband abundantly spoiled me with the Canon 50D.
I adore it.  I snuggle it.  It is lovely.

That is all.
Gotta go breathe and flat iron my hair.

Peace out.


  1. excited for the big partay tonight too... a little nervous. I had to wear the right sweater so I don't have sweaty-pits. :) So excited to meet you.. by the way.

  2. the dishes are adorably priceless. so stinkin' cute. i have camera envy. : )

  3. where in MO did you go to school. From MO went to Stephens and then moved to TX(where I will be forever thanks to being married to a native)
    Have fun at your party and certainly glad that the dish thing has been taken care of....

  4. LOL @ Drew and her fancy package that she sent you. That's so awesome! I wish I had known about that fantastic blog party. I might have even worn heels.

  5. I'm glad that you have solved your dishes problem. My best friend who also lives in Orange County also went to college her freshman year in Missouri, totally weird.

  6. Love the dishes! I'm in the middle of reading Crazy Love right now! Have a great weekend!

  7. I just finished the Crazy Love bible study. It was crazy... and I loved it :)

  8. OMG I am way jealous you are going to BLOG SUGAR!!! I wanted to make it up there so badly, but am home with the little one tonite since his dad is working! BOO! Say hello to everyone from MOMMY HOLLY hehehe!! :) xoxox Holly

  9. i am jealous that you are going to blog sugar. i am sitting here (in az which isn't helping the cause) working on last minute plans for a preschool fundraiser that is making my head hurt, and wishing i was there. have lots of fun, and some for me too, k? oh, and could you say hi to all those gorgeous girls for me? thanks friend.

  10. Nice dishes. Crazy Love is crazy good.

    Seriously, you left Orange county for Missouri? There must be a story there?!?!?

  11. did you really make your book club read pride & prejudice & ZOMBIES? i would have straight up kicked you out the book club for that one. ;)

  12. Have fun at the meetup tonight! I just know everyone's going to love you!

  13. Hope you are having a great time tonight!!

    What a fun thing that Drew did for you!!

  14. Drew is so AWESOME for sending those fantasticly fun plates to you!!

  15. Oh, these are adorable!!

  16. i hope your date was lovely. i want to hear all about it!!!

  17. I enjoyed Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I thought it was a fun read. You just have to go in with an open mind and prepare yourself for it! (I adore the original, but I think it is fun to take a classic and put a twist on it, for some comic relief!)

  18. It was great meeting you at Blog Suger, Joy. Wish we could have talked more. Next time!! Have a great day!

  19. Wow, such cute party plates! I want The Little Mermaid on mine! :)

  20. I am so sorry....but that "i" in "Cali" totally looked like another "l" to me. I had an honest-to-goodness WTF? moment there for a minute.

    Ahem. Anyway. Glad to realize it was an i!

  21. just found your blog!!! Thank you, I am so encouraged!

  22. I don't think I've ever seen lovelier dishes! Truly from the heart :)

  23. So I'm kind a book snob too, but it's not my fault. My mom only kept the best books in the house. I just read your book club selection a few weeks ago. Kinda weird, but very creative. My brother loved it though.
