Easter, a Little Late

But that's how I roll ... Here are a few pictures I snapped on Sunday. With my cell phone.

The Ambrosia Cake is DELICIOUS.  I did leave out the coconut and added maraschino cherries. It's not Ambrosia without the cherries!




I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend too!

Overheard at Walmart

Boo and I headed to Walmart on Sunday night for a few things. Plastic Easter eggs and new folding camp chairs were on the list.  We tossed our old chairs in the trash after the Lax Tournament on Saturday. They were one butt away from breaking and the storage bags had been duct taped together too many times. Their useful life was over!

We were having a great time in the store, picking up the few odds and ends we needed. We stopped in the floor care aisle because I was out of the wood floor cleaner I like to use (Murphy's Oil Squirt & Mop) and I refused to pay grocery store prices for it when I know it's cheaper at Walmart and/or Target. And of course Walmart didn't have it for whatever reason. When I turned around,  Boo was rearranging all the foil boxes on the shelf. I watched him for about 5 seconds and said,

"Umm, what are you doing?"

"Playing Jenga!"

That boy ... and the unexpected things that constantly come out of his mouth which makes me laugh out-loud and causes people to stare! 

He's worth every stare.

How I Make Friends

My friend is over-the-top obsessed with the TV show Scandal. When the show first aired last year, it looked interesting but I already had enough shows on my plate and I didn't want to take on another one. Since the Season Finale was airing last night, I decided to have some fun with her yesterday afternoon:

me: can i call you around 10:15pm tonight?

friend: hell no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

me: lmao
me: i figured that's what you'd say

friend: I will cut you
friend: I will drive all the way to stinking New Jersey, and I mean stinking, and cut you.

me: well now you've baited me

friend: HAHAHA!!!

me: better yet, i think the best time to call would be around 10:56

friend: I won't answer but I will be flipping you off

me:  i crack myself up

friend: well it is good that you make someone laugh

I guess I should be glad she lives about eleven driving hours away otherwise she might make good on her threat!

He's 2 Today

Wishing our giant toddler a very Happy 2nd Birthday!


My wish for you this upcoming year:

Stop trying to eat small animals, including the cats you've lived with since you were BORN. You are a gentle giant with people and looooove kids but to small dogs and Tibby? You're a monster! They are not toys.

We love you anyway, you giant, smart, loyal, nosy, pain-in-the-ass! If you tip the trash can over one more time? I'm bolting it (and you!) to the floor. JUST KIDDING!
