dollies, mothers and the winner!

todays baby finds
how did we get to monday already?  the weekend went soo fast!  These little babies were my saturday morning finds at the doll show.  wow.. this year there just wasnt a lot calling to me!  I guess on one had thats a very good thing.. (the hand that carries the purse!  LOL.
Figgy and frannie, aka  the naughtie pies. (see them on the table??  nothing new.. they go there alot..  sorry to those of you repulsed by that.. but seriously,  it doesnt bother me...)  anyways, they wanted to check out the new babies.. I think figgys just checking out the competition for my attention!
the naughties..
Saturday afternoon and I cleaned and puttered and then had Rob, tiff and marla over for pizza bagels, as they were going to be unable to make it out to dinner with us for mothers day.   and DUH!!  I failed to take any pictures of marla pie! 
Yesterday, I puttered around and then went out to dinner with the other kids and torry pie.  Lets just say... Im afraid to weigh in tomorrow night!  I will surely be scrimping on my points the next two days~ lol!
I got sweet gifts from my kids, a parking pass to the beach... so awesome to have!  and some birds and birdnests and mushroomie type lovely things!  and of course dinner.. such a nice afternoon.. inspite of the blustery snowy, windy rainy weather.. and cold!!   This time, I remembered to take pics, but the lighting was goofy and they just didnt turn out well enough to post.
And so now,  I drew a name for the birdie print and it goes to Vintagebettys!  will you please send me your address my friend?   Hoping to get to the post office tomorrow or wednesday.
I never mailed my mothers day cards...   I have them sitting here ready to go.  I suck.  but really part of the reason was that I was trying to get a good picture of myself to stick in the cards and I must have taken 50 pictures over a few days last week and let me just tell you, I truly am not photogenic...  and then finally I got one that turned out pretty good.  probably just a fluke as I dont think I usually look like that! LOL!
anyways, this is the picture that im sending to my mother and step mother.  I did manage to call my mom last night and I will call my step mother today. 
me 1 
for now, its time to get started on a new week and off I go to get ready for work..  such fun such fun... (that was sarcastic incase you couldnt tell but the tone of my typing! lol)  
happy day girlie pies!

You really are such a pretty lady! Love that picture! Most of the time our kitties don't get on the table...we trained them with a spray bottle of water to keep off the counters. I keep it on the counter...has a label with a kitty skull and cross bones reading "Bad Kitty Repellent." lol! Most of the time I don't mind them on the table...we never eat there.

NEW GLASSES, my beautiful friend! Seriously, Viv, you are so, so pretty! I MEAN THAT! And I just love you to pieces!

Just like everyone else ahead of me has said...your picture is lovely. You are just beautiful, Viv. Your dollies are very sweet too. Congratulations to your winner. You are so darn generous.

Monday is nearly done and I survived my office move. I have a zillion classes to teach this week and Emma's slumber party Friday night. Yikes.
