Things Making Me Smile Today :)






While my bunnies hop around in the yard outback...Im inside..happily displaying my "Peep" that I purchased from the very talented, Christy Meyers (ccswhimsies) and a new lil Birdie i picked up while in Julian over the weekend :)
I love birds.. and am lovin' this one with its crackled look..and thinking that I need to collect LOTS more :)

Can't wait for april to get here so I can spend time with one of my bestest buds.. and hopefully get to take a workshop together in San Diego!!!

TJ surprised me with a single white carnation :) (and so I had to capture the moment)..sitting in a vase on my window sill.. it was somehow capturing the light thru the bottom part of the vase..and creating this 'inner glow' inside the carnation. It was really quite pretty! I really didn't need the flash..as you can see the light coming from the 'inside' of the flower... it was so freaky! :)



So getting a flower from one of my boys typically must mean that they want a favor..right?? lol Im still waiting .. thinking there must be something he wants...right????


So i was a good Mommy today and did a load of laundry for him ;)

Earrings...


TJ has a friend that's working in a new, cute little shop in the mall..and she asked him to be her 'model' for the day..and got free ear piercing!!



Wasn't sure how I'd feel with my SON who has his ears pierced.. but it actually looks ok! So he graciously 'posed' for me yesterday :)

Im stuffed!!!




Ahhhh.. Last nite's "Breakfast" at the Kitchen Academy..was INCREDIBLE!!! Sooo much food..too little tummy!


Everything I tasted was delicious...and my now new favorite food is Crepes Suzette!!

Sara was in charge last nite of making these sweet little triangles of heavenly goodness!! Made with Grand Marnier (French cognac based orange liqueur) and topped with little mandarin oranges and a pretty dusting of powdered sugar..they were the Hit of the Party!! (at least in my tummy anyways ..hehehe)


There were Eggs Benedict.. Quiches of 4 different varieties, bacon, sausage, omelettes made to order, french toast on baguette bread that i hear was just as heavenly.. Crepes Mornay, i know im missing alot of others..and juices.. freshly made juices of all sorts.. my favorite was the strawberry orange juice!! yum!!! ( i think im getting hungry again!!)


The Theme of the night was "The Breakfast Club".. the decorations were done in a school cafeteria style setting..with brown paper table covers and brown paper lunch bags as centerpieces that held an Apples, Pencils, "Rules".. and bubble gum tossed about the table! It was cute!

We got to meet Sara's instructor, Chef Pierre. He is very proud of Sara and her enthusiasm, skills ,attitude and work effort :) This just made our buttons pop :) I think we beamed all night long :) ( oh ya..and even saw a celebrity strolling thru the area outside.. but we can't think of his name!!!!)


The class did such a great job on the food, decorations and the presentation of it all.. both Tim and I were very impressed. Everyone was very professional acting..and looking..and took pride in what they were doing :)


Congratulations Sara on doing such a wonderful job last nite... We Love you and are soooo very proud of you :) :) :)

~*~Memories~*~


I've been thinking of my mother in law alot lately..she's dealing with some health issues and not feeling very well :( She's usually one of the most outgoing, bubbliest people I know and her health really has her feeling down.
I thought I'd post these two pictures of us.. they were taken when she was visiting in June 2005 and we headed to the San Diego Bay for a day of fun in the sun, laughs and good food :)
I miss her..and can't wait for her to come back out this June for TJ's graduation :)
Hurry Up and get Here Mom!!!

..More Wildlife in my backyard..




Im actually happy to see the squirrel enjoying some of my cherry tomatoes in my 'dead' garden~ Why is it that the rest of the garden is dead..and the tomato plant survives any sort of condition??? Now if only the Bunnies would munch on the 'maters and leave my husband's grass alone.. we might have found a happy medium!

..Easter Bunny Training..



Man.. Im sooo not getting any work done because these cute lil bunnies keep popping up in my yard to nibble on my already dead grass!!



They are just so darn tootin' cute! I especially am in LOVE with the little one that appears..he sticks to the outskirts of the grass.. doesn't wander too far from the protection of the bushes..I've named him "Lil Bits" .. cuz he's just this little bit of a thing!!
If I were only fast enough to catch him and to be able to hold him and pet him..it would make my day!!!

Of course.. between him and the 8 adult bunnies poppin' in to visit me.. the hubby isn't too fond of these lil critters chewing up his grass :( I don't know what we're going to do.. they really brighten my day.. and my idea to get them to stop eating the grass was to plant a special garden just for them!! heheheh ::: tim just rolls his eyes and shakes his head :::



I think "Lil Bits" is in 'training' for easter.. hehehehehe
