Color Everywhere

{My MawMaw gave all of her grandkids one of these for Christmas when we were younger. I have yet to find a box of 72 crayons to fill it. They have boxes of 8, 16, 24, 48, 64, 96 & 120...but no 72. Why not? It makes no sense!}

I love color! Color is everywhere.
When people ask me what my favorite color is, I usually respond,
"Every color of the rainbow!"

{Post-it notes}

I love these things.
They are so colorful (and pretty).


Colorful Sharpies are a favorite!

White Collar

To solve the hardest crimes, hire the smartest criminal.

{Neal Caffrey, the criminal}

{Peter Burke, the FBI agent}

I've got a new favorite show. Well, I suppose it's a little early to say since there's only been one episode. It is a USA original series, though, and 3 of my other favorite shows are USA original series {Burn Notice, Royal Pains & Monk}. This new one was quite entertaining. I look forward to many more great episodes. It plays on USA Fridays 10/9C. Check it out!

My thought for the day: I wish work was like kindergarten.....naptime anyone?

{I got this wooden car from a classmate of mine in kindergarten, Karla Brudi. Her dad made everyone in our class one for Christmas. It's amazing how you can hold on to something for so long.}

Shawn's Fish Cake

Shawn celebrated his birthday in September.
A group of us went to Cracker Barrel to celebrate.
{He loves that place; so do I}.

I saw this cake and decided to try to make one like it.
It didn't come out exacly the same, but everyone thought it was cute.

I like round cakes.
I especially like round cakes that have not so smooth icing.

Who am I kidding?
I just love cake!

{Me & the Birthday Boy}

Zebra Cake

My friend, Lauren, and I made this cake for her Mom, Debby.
Debby loves zebra print, and red is her favorite color.

This was put together really quickly, so of course it didn't come out exactly how I wanted. I think it's cute, though. Next time we'll make it look more like a zebra. Debby liked it, though, & it tasted delicious, so I guess it was perfect!

Gone Fishing

I really love it when Shawn takes me fishing.
There's nothing like being out on the lake.
It's the best place to read a good book.

There's always so much to see.
The lake is also the perfect place to take some beautiful pictures.

Shawn caught two of these little guys.

Then he caught their big brother.

He doesn't look very happy.
In fact, he looks mighty grumpy.

After a while it started getting cloudy.

So, I drove us back.
{That was fun!}

As always, it was a fun time.
And don't worry. All of the fish were released.

p.s. Bass are slimy.
