One, Two, Three, Four, I Declare a Thumb War.

I walk into my daughter's room Sunday night and ask here what she is doing. She tells me that she is having a thumb war with Maggie. This is what our poor dog has to put up with non stop. Thank goodness she is one of those kind of dogs that just doesn't care.

My Best Gals

Monday we didn't have school so Bella and I went to have lunch with one of my most favorite Alumni, Sabrina (Hi Sabrina). It was pouring but Bella and I really wanted to see her before she went back to school for the semester. Did I tell you that Sabrina is an amazing student, a great musician, and she wants to be a doctor?? We miss her already!!

Who Will Buy, Who Will Buy, Who Will Buy....My Headbands?

Bella my little entrepreneur wanted to make headbands to sell. She worked oh so very hard and made about 7 headbands. She is most definitely going to be taking care of her mama in my old age, she is a non stop thinker, and oh so creative!!

A Cup of Heaven...Almost

Heaven would be a Iced Venti Sugar Free Cinnamon Dolce Non Fat Latte, but since caffeine is persona non gratis in my diet this is the next best thing, and makes me very very happy. I mean VERY happy. It is a Large Iced Apple Tea Latte No Sugar Added.

I know my beverages of choice are very complicated.

The Greatful We're Not Dead

Our Middle School had a battle of the bands. As a surprise to the students some of our faculty put together a band and performed Knockin on Heaven's Door. They were a big hit with the students. I laughed my butt off...not really, oh if it were only that easy!!

You Go Ahead I'll Catch Up

Rich and I ran some errands. I got a new serrated knife at Macy's Home Store. I am telling you I was so excited to get a new knife, I got home and just randomly cut some bread to give it a try. As we were leaving we saw these awesome manikins. I thought they were so funny...I had to pose. I had a couple of other options to pose like them running at me, or over me, but this one was the least odd to the passers by. Now you all know my true personality, by posing for this picture. More importantly you all know Rich's personality for actually taking this picture and for always being my partner in crime!!

In summary: I really think that even with opposable thumbs Maggie's personality would never make her good at thumb wars. Rain will not keep me from the important things in life, food and friends. My daughter needs an Etsy shop, so she can continue to keep fueling my expensive coffee shop drink habit long after I am able to. I teach with the coolest faculty, and am going to spend the rest of my life with a man who is crazy...just like me!!

  1. I loved all your pictures this week, but your summary was the best!!!

    I need the candy wrapper headband...actually maybe not, it might still smell like chocolate and then cause me to digress in my diet!!

    not a fan of

    great week!

  2. Awww. Your daughter is SO creative and cute. She reminds me of what my 3 year old (Audrey) seems to be like. She is already creative even at 3. I would like to buy one from her if she really wants to sell them. I would mail her the money. Ask her how much they are for me if you would please. :)

  3. A fun week despite the rain :-) Having a partner-in-crime is the best! Next time I totally think you should pretend to have them running after or over you. lol Who cares what passers-by think -- only old fuddie duddies would be scandalized.

    I think starting an etsy store is a great idea! My daughter would have totally done that if it had been around when she was that age :-) As it was, she went door to door with samples of homemade cookies and then took orders -- she actually made a good amount of money doing that one year! And we benefited from the broken and discarded not perfect cookies :-)

  4. Amy, can I email you and ask you a few questions about ovarian cysts? my email is sarawbowyerATmsnDOTcom.

  5. thanks for stopping by my blog and for the nice comment. What a cute picture of your daughter and the doggie. our dog is that kind of doggie too. Cute. Love the headbands as well.

  6. I think that Dr. M & I should double-date with you two - we think alike. We might get thrown out of some place though. Hmmm.

  7. enjoy week 5!
    great pics and writeups...again!

  8. Such great pictures. Your pup is precious... truly. No look alike outfits? ;)

    And I'm cracking up at the man in the background of your last pic. He's trying hard not to look. Haha...

  9. The thumb printed rainy photo is my favorite.
    Oh, and the running pose ;)
    So happy for you in new found love and great relationships.
    Blessings in Wk 5.

  10. great pictures. Love you and the manikins. Too funny. I'm tired of rain too!

  11. ok, i seriously wanted to reach through the sreen and grab that drink! mmmm, that sounds like just the thing I would love!

  12. I get excited about anything new in my kitchen, a good knife makes all the difference.

    Great 365!

    Have a great rest of the week. I did not do 365 last year but I am having fun with it so far.


  13. Oh my goodness...the drink order?

    I love the 'laughing your butt off' line..too bad it takes way more than that to shed a few pounds. I wish!

  14. Haha, I love that picture of you. I do think it shows the real you.

  15. Your titles and summaries were very entertaining. That's a lot of rain for Jan.

    Dogs can be such great friends!

  16. What a fun week in pictures you had...despite the rain. (That's a lot of rain.) Your coffee drinks overwhelm me. I don't drink coffee and wouldn't even know where to BEGIN to order a drink like that. I'm a "Plain Jane," too, so you know what I order at Starbucks and the like? Hot cocoa. Plain old hot cocoa. And I consider myself going all out!

  17. fun photos esp your photo with mannequin :)

    u may view mine here

  18. Loved all the pics, but especially loved the wrap-up! Very funny!
