Cheddar Pretzels and Rainbows

He doesn’t remember the cheddar pretzels. We always had a bag of them in the pantry when we lived in the States. The kids snacked on them all the time. But they don’t sell them over here. And it is stupid expensive to order them online. So, we’ve gone without for 2.5 years.

Quick Trip to DC

I was sent to Washington DC for a short-notice two-day training session that left me with very little down time, but I managed to catch up with these ladies … and a strawberry margarita. I will forever be grateful for having the kind of friends who will drop everything and change their plans, and even […]

Flashback Friday: Ghosts and Gab

[dropcap style=”color: #9b9b9b;”]A[/dropcap] visitor from the United States arrived this week.  We call her Sy, and she’s the daughter of my friend Stacey, who I’ve mentioned more than a few times here on the blog.

Flea Market

Flea market shopping with some of my fave people today — my friend Stacey and her girls. There were some GREAT vintage clothes there. If only I had unlimited funds and giant closets, ya know?!?!

Bright Awesome Sunshine

  It was such a wonderful spring weekend. Did you get some sun, too? Did you get to go outdoors and sit in some fresh, green grass? We did and I’m telling you, all five of us have been more upbeat and energetic. It’s been a long winter, but now it’s over and we really […]

Photo Target

I found this photo of Martin on my camera yesterday. I learned that Miss C took it over the weekend when she noticed that her dad and Ellie the Cat were essentially making the same face. It makes me laugh.
