some randomness for your wednesday.

can i just say how in love i am with the smell of lilacs...
they have been blooming all last week and this week.
by far the longest they have EVER bloomed.
i brought some inside, cause i just can't get enough of that sweet fragrance.
mine are miniature lilac bushes.
my bestie tonya found one at our local garden center called a bloomerang.  it's supposed to bloom again in june. 
i must get me one of those!
lilacs in june!  yes. please!

tonya and hubby sean came for Easter weekend.
friday night we went out with them and our other friends mark and susan to eat.
i love getting together with my two favorite girls from high school.
we laugh. a lot!
like a doofus, i forgot my camera. :(

later that night we took the poochies to the dog bar.
yes, we have a dog bar, and it is soo much fun.
duke and miley loved it.
again, no camera.
hopefully tonya will share some pictures since she remembered her camera.

last week this little guy came for a play date with miley.
miley will tell you all about it .
yes, she said she is going to start blogging again.
she's working on her facebook page right now.

these still haven't made it into pots.
somehow our lovely spring has been kidnapped.
it has been cold, gloomy and damp.
no beuno!!!!!

some of you asked about this little guy from the Easter post.
i found him on the driveway sat morning. 
he is a chubby baby cardinal.
i didn't even zoom in with the pictures, i was laying on the driveway with the camera 2 inches from his beak.
he didn't care.
one reader said he looked like he had a little too much Easter candy. :)
i am happy to report that i saved him and that chubby little body was able to somehow take flight.

i am not a fan of doing prom hair. has to do with those glossed up pageant looking up-do's that all look the same.
i don't like that.  i like natural looking, non-helmet prom hair.
so i was happy when the next american idol wanted big sweeping curls.
some day you will see her on idol.  you will!
she has an amazing voice for a 16 year old.
i've done her hair since she was born, and i lover her to pieces.

a very unfocused photo of me being goofy.
thankfully, i have been super focused lately.
i have gotten so much made for the big barn sale!!!
the condition of my house is another story!

here is a flyer...SPREAD THE WORD!!!
there will be little red barn signs to tell you where to go.
...and if you could say a little prayer for good weather?
i would appreciate it :)


  1. That bird is so cute. I love his pudgy belly and fun pomp hair feathers.
    I hope the barn sale goes well. How's the weather there now? I keep hearing about tornados and wild weather.
    The prom hair is absolutely beautiful, I love it. I'm with ya on the simple style. She looks fabulous. Well done.

  2. I am so hoping the weather will cooperate next weekend! I won't be a fun helper if I am cold. :)

  3. I found your blog from Meg's. I love the smell of lilacs also. I am praying for beautiful weather for your barn sale. Good luck!
