Is This Chicken??? Why Yes, yes it is!!

Walked on down the road to the neighbors house last night for dinner.
On the menu was their home made chili. I brought hot dogs to add to the menu just in case my little punks hated the chili cause I'm nice like that.

I was secretly told on the sly that the meat in the chili was venison ( deer meat).
I quickly ordered my friends to keep that little bit of info quiet as I know my little punks and knew that they wouldn't come within ten feet of a bowl of that chili if they knew that "bambi" was in it.

So we bellied up to the table with our chili and hot dogs and the kids were gobbling it down when Indy says to me...

Indy "Mom I don't really like the chili I just only like the chicken in it"

Me, " That's OK honey... you can just pick out the chicken and eat it."

Neighbor enemy friend, " Hey kids how do you like the possum chili?"

Indy, looks at me, dumps the big chunk of meat back into the bowl and says, " I'm done"

me , looking over at my frenemy " REALLY?? did you have to say that?"

Frenemy, " I 'm only kidding Indy... It's not possum."

Indy, " Mom I don't believe him, can I go outside and play? I'm really done."

Me "yes yes honey you may be excused... do you want one more bite of chicken?"

Indy " HELL NO No thank you... I'm really done.

So the  hot dogs got all eaten up and Ari gave me the "look" after finding out the truth about the meat.

My neighbors have a lot of left over chili thanks to SOMEONES big mouth!!

When we left I told them thanks for the " road kill " chili

I'm a Huge DORK!!

OK so I was all set to show you the big reveal on the girl's bedroom that I just finished, 
I went to pull the pictures out of my iphoto and they are all blurry. I will get my act together and post them hopefully tonight or tomorrow.
 I am also starting another girls room in my neighborhood so I will also be showing you that room as well. It's always fun to get some inspiration.

Have a great day!!

Oh Sorry!!

I've been so busy lunching that I forgot about blogging.

As soon as I was feeling good I hit the ground running and haven't stopped much. The last week has included lots of lunches out with girlfriends, and lots of decorating for other people. I get the huge pleasure of decorating a friends house for the holidays so I've been shopping for beautiful Christmas decor for her home. SUPER fun for me... not so much fun for her. Thank GAWD that she gags at the thought of having to shop for decor because it keeps me busy and happy, and well.. employed!!!

I just finished an eight year old's bedroom. My first client in  several years and my first client in Alabama.
Here are the "before" pictures of the bedroom,

 These Southern Belle's... they like everything monogrammed.

 And they like their shower curtains to go from the ceiling to the freakin' floor!!!
Tomorrow, I will show you the "After"!! stay tuned

Momma's Back!!

I have turned the corner and am on the fast track to a full recovery. It practically happened over night. My neighbor who is an oncologist tweaked my meds and added a couple and it seamed to do the trick.

On Monday I was so week still. Then by Wednesday I was out and about and wanting to make a lunch date with anything that had a heartbeat. This week I have already had two lunch dates, (it's only Tuesday) and I'm good to go. I have spent the past two weeks watching the food network with a spiral notebook in hand taking copious notes on all of the different foods I want to make. I'm on a roll. I have made Mexican, Italian, and tonight was Indian. Tomorrow is leftovers and then Mexican again!! LOVE it.

I'm hungry.

The 25 pound weight loss that comes along with a week long stay in the hospital ,and then the vomiting and diareah that was before that and then that followed, is still off but I'm hungry... really hungry.

Happy to be back. I am so grateful that I have a husband that was able to completely run the ship while I lay on the sofa and then in the hospital and back to our bed and then to the sofa again. He did EVERYTHING!! I'm not kidding when I say he did everything and I did nothing. 

Thank you honey for running this household and for taking such good care of me and the little punks for so long. I couldn't have gotten better without your love and support. 

And thank you to all of my family and friends who sent their love and prayers and meals and cards etc. It's so nice to be loved. The support has meant the world to me and I am so grateful.

Happy Birthday Alex

Ten years ago today I gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. I felt like I won the lottery that day...
And I still do.

Dear Alex, thank you for being the kindest most sensative soul and for making me laugh... even when I don't want to.

I love you.
