My Week in Snaps

9.14.2013

Last week was a busy one and I have several instagram snaps to share just to give you a peek into my daily life behind the blog.


I'm going to cheat a little with this first snap and only show you part of it.  I will be sharing what this is soon. This was a project I worked on last Saturday and can't wait to share the reveal on Monday.

Miss Bailey got real tired watching me work on the project.

And Bailey crashed again.

I don't buy a lot of bacon, but was shocked at the price it is now. Have pigs gone on strike or something??

While cutting the grass again, which will slow down soon, I noticed our poor confused tree. This tree gets these little white sticky bugs all over the leave that suck the life out of the leaves and then they fall off early. Now new ones are coming back and then they will die and fall off. So I am getting a double dose of leaves falling off this tree.

Ouch! This is a burn I got on the tender skin under my arm. I hit it on a very hot chandy light bulb. It looks much worse now.

I babysat my granddaughter, Leila, Tuesday and Thursday.

Tuesday was my 58th birthday and my dad sent me this card. At least this time it wasn't a pop up.

Also on my birthday I has a little angel watching over me. I was barefooted and went in the master bathroom and walked on through until I realized there was broken glass everywhere. The counter was covered and one of the sinks was full of glass. Well, quite a lot was on the floor, too. I did not step on a single piece. My flip flops were sitting pretty close to where I stopped and I grabbed them and put them on and started cleaning up the glass. I was still finding pieces two days later.

Here is the culprit. The globe had been cracked and for some reason it just finally blew.

My daughter, son in law, and Leila went out to eat with us at Carrabbas on my birthday. Have y'all heard of the phone app that changes your voice into the sound you make after sucking helium? My daughter had recorded her singing with that app and we were cracking up at it and Leila was showing us.

On Wednesday my mom, sister and sister in law came over and we went out to lunch for my birthday. Sorry y'all are probably sick of me saying birthday. lol. This is the card my mom gave me. I was cracking up!

Not the best phone picture taken by a waiter, but this is us with our glowing eyes at lunch and it wasn't from too much to drink. Sister, me, brother's wife, and mom. I wish she wasn't cut off. She looks darn good for 80 years young.

Then after lunch we popped into Pottery Barn since I wanted to check on ordering a new slipcover for my over ten years old PB basic sofa in the sunroom. The back is ripped at the seams and it won't zip so I can't even take it off again cause I will never get it back on. Uh, Pottery Barn, the prices of these faux pumpkins are outrageous at $39 and up each! No, thank you.

Leila and Bailey are best buds. I just love Bailey's expression.

Leila getting her groove on with the Bubble Guppies on Thursday.

And that was pretty much my life this week.

I'm going real pumpkin hunting today in the north Ga. mountains.

Have a fabulous weekend!

  5. Have you ever dried a real pumpkin so it lasts forever? It would save a bit of £! I don't think you can even get faux pumpkins here in the UK. I wonder how easy they are to dry...

    Pottery Barn is great for ideas and if you can get things on sales.

  11. Oh my gosh Leila is adorable getting her groove on. Glad no injuries from the shattered glass. That happened to me this week, I had a cake plate in the micro and Jack made popcorn and never took it out, it shattered everywhere, and I did step on a small piece. Nothing major though.

  19. Happy Birthday. Love your little Yorkie and your sweet granddaughter.
    Try wwwuglysofa.com........They have PB slipcovers for around $30. I think that is the site.
    You were not lucky about the burn but not stepping on the glass was really luck. That could have been so bad.

  21. Happy belated birthday, Kim! I had one on the 4th, but I am afraid I am 5 years older than you. It looks like you had a lot of fun things going on, celebrating with family. Yes, your mother still looks beautiful and so do you. The cards are so cute, especially the one with the blogging dog! That burn looks painful and I am so glad you didn't step on that broken glass. Both Bailey and Leila are so sweet. I couldn't help smiling at the Bubble Guppies and have to say, I have watched it way more times than I care to count, since I provided daycare for my grandchildren up until this year when the youngest started 5K. Bubble Guppies was a daily event, along with numerous others. I know the theme songs from most of them. Thanks for letting us share in your birthday fun! Wishing you many more happy returns.

  26. Happy Belated Birthday! Looks like you all had a great time at lunch. I love Pottery Barn, but I agree that they can be pricey...so I go to the outlet store most of the time. Bailey is so cute...she looks a lot like one of my Yorkies.

  29. Happy belated Birthday Kim! Mine was on Thursday and I have to say I am jealous! I bought myself a ceramic skillet and griddle. The hubs and I took the dogs for a walk at our favorite park. What is the world coming to; $9 bacon and $40 for fake pumpkins??? The only way I bought the skillet and griddle was because they were on clearance at Home Goods...they are wonderful to cook with.

  30. Well other than that nasty burn and the broken glass, I say you had a great birthday week!!!....Yes, it is those "designer pigs" that are driving the prices up on bacon.
