5 Question Friday and pics!!!

Yayyyyyyy it's Friday, it's Friday, hallelujah it's Friday!!  This week has been crazy, frustrating, annoying, long and extremely draining and I am so so so so sooooo glad that Friday is finally here.  So I know I said like a few days ago I would get you pics but thanks to a catastrophicly horrible minor computer glitch I had to retake all the pics and I did them today...see how much I love you guys?!?!??!!!

So first the questions that make you go hmmmmmm.....

1. Vow renewal ceremonies-yay or nay?
Totally yay!!!  Mr. M and I were supposed to renew our vows at 10 yrs but seeing as I had just had a baby and we were miles away from any family we decided to wait and do it at 20 yrs. I am really excited for it because by then we will be back in Oklahoma with our families and friends and our kids with both be old enough to be there and witness it.  Oh and if you are curious I want to do it in Vegas with Elvis Presley as our minister!! Wooohoooooo!!!

2. What sound/s annoy you the most?
Hmmmmm well I can NOT stand whining of any kind!!! Oooooooohhh dear it makes me want to lose my mind completely. I do have to say though that my biggest noise annoyance would be any kind of noise when I am driving. Let a drink be bouncing around in a cup holder, Mr. M's shoe squeeking from being on the dash, a coin sliding around in the door panel....oommgggg it drives me flipping nuts!!!

3. If you had to pick, would you have only all boys, or only all girls for kids?
Well I didn't get a choice and I got all girls. I love my girls and I have to say having the second girl was much easier with an older one to go off of.  They do get along and they like the same things so I would have to say same sex is a total plus!!

4. Do you believe in alternative medicine?
Absolutely!!  Let me tell you that the next time you get a migraine...cut the peel off of a lemon big as possible and put it on your forehead inside on your skin and tie a bandana or headband around it to hold it on and give it about 2's amazing!! Drug free and the best medicine for headaches I have ever tried!!

5. Would you take a family members children and raise them if they needed it?
Of course I would!!  Mr. M and I talk about this all the time about when our parents get older we will take them in. He is not so happy about it really mainly because he is one of those people who really likes his own space but that is jut the way it is going to be and so we have both agreed we will do whatever is best for our parents. Now our siblings and their kids would be a total different story. Hopefully we never have to deal with that EVER!!!  Seriously!!!

 The beautiful platter I bought in Greece. I have never seen these colors and I just had to have it.
 Can you just see the hand painted details? I love this piece!!
 This is our Greece shelf. You see with the new shelves we bought I made a shelf for every country or place we went. You can see the bottle of olive oil in the back and the post card of Mykonos.
 The plate is hand painted from Corfu. I love the scene on it and it means so much more that we actually stood there and saw that scene in person. You can also see the little marble egg. In case you don't follow me on a regular basis I am obsessed with eggs. I think they are beautiful and amazing and I collect them from every place I find them.
 Two mini statues from Olympia. The jugs are both hand made from Greece. Soo cute!
 The mini church from Santorini, Greece.
 Aaaaah Venice, how I loved thee!!  I had to have this mask. It took us all day to find one Mr. M and I both really liked. Of course, we went to hard rock...tradition!
 The top of the shelves I had to use too. Right now it is a little crowded because we realized we actually need more shelves but that will have to wait until I can reorganize our house to make room for them.  So here is our hard rock glasses from Koln, Germany and Heidelberg, Germany along with chocolate beer from Koln, the Heidelberg towers from the bridge and a bottle of wine.
 Also on the top of the shelves is our portfolio from the cruise.
 Here are the shelves with our stuff all set up.  It just makes me happy to have it all out and not stuffed in the curio or on the china hutch so no one could really see it.
 I decided touse this little corner shelf to hold all of my old books from every country we have been. Every time we go to a different country I look for old books in whatever language that country speaks to have as keepsakes.
 Here is the Pisa and Milan shelf. There is also the bottle of Swiss rocks from Switzerland.
 This is the Amsterdam and Belgium shelf.
 This is the France shelf. Of course Paris and the little house in front is from Strausborg Christmas market.
This is our Berlin shelf. That was one of my most favorite trips. There is so much to do and see there I could spend a week and still feel like I missed out.

Ok so you have seen some pics and sorry about it taking so long.  I hope all of you have a fabulous weekend and I will be back next week for more bloggidy blog fun!!

The tire saga continues..dum dum dum dummmmm

Ok so for those of you who follow me on a pretty regular basis then you will remember my tire story. If not go back and read it..NOW!!!!  No really...go!!  

So for those who know it well let me continue with what happened today. As you will recall I was due to go and pick up the new tire today from the Exchange and then go back to the repair shop to have it put on. I was already worried that I was going to have to pay again to have it put on but figured it was worth it if it just worked and I could be done with this whole ordeal. Wowwww what I wrong!!!  As I took the tire up to the store the first thing the lady says to me is "your tire is not here yet". What do you mean not here..go get it?!?!!  Ok so then the manager comes out to look at the bad tire and immediately tells me "no this is not a bad tire it was damaged in mounting" Ummmmm ok what the heck does that mean?  As the manager starts to tell me I have to go back to the tire center and tell them they messed up the tire and that he will not give me a new tire because it is their issue I say very calmly "Please can you call them and tell them what you just said because the going back and forth is killing me"  He picks up the phone and speaks with a manager who then tells him to bring in the tire when I come back and they will see what they can do.  In the mean time he explains to me that I have to pay for yet another tire and then hope that I get my money back from them.  Ummm and again...say what?!?! 
So now not only have we moved into the worst customer service ever from anywhere in the entire world but now......I yupp that's right...I get to pay for another new tire, then pay to have that one mounted and then fight with the tire company and the government to get my money back.  Ok by now I am just laughing because really I want to scream and cry and I am just to frustrated to do either one.
I go over to the claims office to ask them what I have to do and their first response was "well what does the tire guys say?" Well the tire guy said it was a bad tire and the tire store said it was mounting that broke the tire so I have no idea what to say except that I am about to be out another $187 for nothing that I did wrong!!!
So now we go with the 15 pages of paperwork that I have to fill out and try to make a claim so that they can investigate it and see if they will give me my money back or if I have to fight the Exchange over my money....are you following this?!?!  Honestly I am a bit lost and all I know right now is that I still have a bad tire in the back of my truck taking up space and when the new tire finally gets here I will have to pay for it. Then take it over to the man whom they are accusing of ruining a tire and ask him to put it on. Seriously?!??! 
In my honest opinion  I like the tire guy. He has never been anything but nice to me and I do not believe that he would have damaged the tire and then put it on my truck knowing that myself and my kids were going to get into the truck and drive away on it.  Does that change the fact that no one wants to pay for the damage and so atleast for now I am the one screwed...NOPE!!!!

So I will be back later with an update which will probably go something like this....the tire guys are now mad at me for claiming against them and all their helpfulness that they once had towards me is gone. I have a bad tire in my truck and a new tire in my truck and no one to put it on!! Yay me!!!!

Post it note Tuesday!!

5 Question Friday and the truck, the tire and customer service!!

1. If your husband had the BIG V and you got pregnant what would your first reaction be? For the dudes, what would your first reaction be if your wife told you she was pregnant after the Big V?
Well since Mr. M had the big V and I can talk from that perspective then...someone would be getting an in person law suit sent to them!! Every now and then I will be late and I always tell Mr. M if your blanks are active again I am shooting a doctor!!  So I guess that answers that!!

2. Best memory about this summer so far.
Oh well obviously it has to be our cruise to Greece!! It was the BEST time I have ever had on a vacay so far and we have been to old favorite but still totally in love with it and want to go back.

3. How often do you change your sheets? Your kids sheets?
The master sheets get changed every week and the girls sheets get changed at the same time. Unless there are things that come up..sick kid,aunt flo issues or really hot weather and we sweat like banchees then we always go with that.

4. Having just gone through TSA, would you rather have a full-body scan or a pat-down?
I would rather do the machine thingy..I can NOT stand when someone touches me whether it is there job or not I always feel violated!!

5. Since it is fair time...what's your favorite fair (county or state) memory?
OMG I love fairs and especially the one in Oklahoma. Mr. M actually drove down from Kansas when we were dating just to take me to the fair...isn't he a doll?!?!?!
Ok so there goes the questions for today! Now I know I have been promising you all pictures and I swear they are loaded and all but I have had quite a few issues this week. Let me explain...

A few weeks ago I had a flat tire and went to the tire repair shop to be told it would take me a week to get an appointment to get it looked at. So I drove around with a spare tire for over a week. Then when I finally get into the shop he tells me that my stupid stupid 20 in rims that Mr. M just HAD to have on my truck are corroded and worthless and need to be replaced. Well I sure as heck wasn't going to get more stupid stupid rims so I bought the more truck like 17 in rims and the big honkin' tire truck tires....ruff ruff prrrrrr!!! Sexy!!!
So of course being overseas it took me 2 weeks to get the rims in since no one around here carries them and then we had to order the tires. So the last 2 rims came in Monday and I ordered the tires and they came in Wednesday. I called up the tire shop and got an appointment for today..yay it didn't take a month this time!!!  So today I was all excited to not only get the new..and in my opinion prettier tires...put on my truck but to have all of it out of my truck and have my truck back to normal. So the girls and I loaded up this morning and headed to the tire repair shop to get my baby all did up!!  Yes I meant to say did ya'll chill out!

It took a little over an hour and the guys there are always so nice to me. I went and got into my truck with my beautiful girls and headed out to go to the recycle center to dump the old rims and tires. Mr. M was going to meet us there to help unload until......  Once we got to the gate of the other kaserne we heard a loud pop and air gushing from my truck...oh yeah we had a flat tire!!!!  Ok pick up your jaw now and keep reading it gets sooo much better from here.

I pulled off the side of the road as soon as I could to get out and watch my brand new tire on my brand new rim go flat faster then I have ever seen a tire go flat in my life!!! The girls jumped out of the truck just as I was getting Mr. M on the phone to let him know we were down the street from his work with new tires and new rims and flat tire. He freaked and came running over to us.  As we both just stood there looking at it like seriously we thought it was going to dance for us or something saying over and over "are you freaking kidding me?!?!"  Mr. M began getting the jack out to change the tire and put one of the old ones on so I could go back to the tire shop and find out what the deal was.  He had all the lug nuts off the tire and truck up on the jack when all of a sudden my worst fears came true...the truck began to roll right towards Mr. M.  Now I know any of you who have been in a situation where you see something bad going to happen and are determined to do whatever you can to stop it will understand me when I say this....I tried to grab the truck and yelled at Mr. M to move his ass!!  Thank goodness he moved really fast when I yelled and unfortunately I was not able to hold the truck like I SOOO swore I could!! Just an FYI for all of you...trucks are really really heavy k?!?!
So we put the tire braces under the tires and started again..haha yeah he didn't tell me we had those..sheeesh!!!  So tire off and old tire on the girls and I headed back to the repair shop to find out what the problem was. As we got to the repair shop one guys said "hey you still here?" and I said "nope I am back with a flat tire" He laughed until he realized I wasn't kidding and went to get the manager.  Once the guy who had just fixed my truck saw me he came right out and took the tire to see what was wrong with it.  After testing it and putting air back in it he explained to me that the tire was defective and had a bubble in it.  He showed the bubble to me so I could show the tire shop people and told me that normally a bubble in the tire wall means you hit something but since it is obviously a brand new tire and he can tell it was not hit in any way they might need to see the bubble to believe me.  So off we went to the tire shop where we bought it.  

Now for those of you who are military then you will understand when I say we bought the tire at AAFES, exchange, whatever they are calling themselves these days. I have always called them an injustice and ripoffville but we will go with exchange for now.  I walked in and told the nice lady who had helped me order the tires that I just came from the tire shop and one of the tires has a defect and I need to get another tire. A man standing there wanted to know what was wrong so I explained it and he then went to get his manager. The manager asked me what happend and I explained what it was and he began to tell me that a bubble in the tire wall is from impact and that I ruined the tire and I was going to have to pay for it....hold on ya'll this gets really good about now..I looked at him and gave him a chance to say his say and call me a liar and then I opened my mouth and every hateful thing that anyone has done or said to me this year came rushing out of my mouth at this man...errrrrr sorry dude!!  I told him I did not appreciate being called a liar and that there was no way that I could have hit anything in the 2 meters I drove before this stupid defective tire blew and my girls are screaming terrified that something is really wrong. I told him that I had already been to the tire shop and they told me it was defective and that if he asked me to pay for another tire we were going to have a serious issue on our hands.  He then looked at me, looked at the nice lady who was helping me and told her "order a new tire for her".  Hmmmmmm do you think that if I had been some mousey little meak woman whom this man obviously thought he was talking to that I would have gotten it fixed or gotten screwed?!?! 

I left there pissed off, with 3 new tires and 1 old one on my truck and all I could think was....are you freaking kidding me?!?!  It has been devastating enough for not just me but my girls and a whole lot of running around and he had the nerve to call me a liar??!!?!?!??!?!  Can you say  Ice complaint anyone!!!!?!??!??!?!

So I still have a truck full of tires and rims and wierd looking set on my truck at the moment and I will have to wait until next week to get any of it fixed which means no big traveling for us this weekend and definitely no fun for the exchange manager when I finish my complaint!! :)

So yes I will get to the pictures I SWEAR I WILL!!!!  Just give me a little time to get stuff back to normal around here first....thanks!!!

5 Question Friday!!!

Ohhh how I looooove Fridays!!!!  I wish they came twice a fabulous would that be!!  Ok ok so I am totally busy right now and I swear every time I think I am almost done for the day I go and do something stupid like check my emails...ughhhhh!!!  So I am taking an email and phone break to do questions. I love these questions and I think I love even more that they come on Friday the most beautiful day of the week!!

1. If you knew your best friend's spouse was cheating on her or him, would you tell her (him)?
Ohhhh what a wonderful question...NOT!!!!  Ok so just so you know I have been through this and it sucks no matter how you go about it.  First of all if you tell your friend and she is not convinced you will lose that friend even after she does finally realize you were right because she will just be too humiliated to admit you were right and she was mean. Secondly, if you tell her and it turns out that she already knew and has decided to stay with her husband and work it out then for a while your friendship will tear apart day by day until you are just cordial with each other because you just feel like you know secret information and she will feel like she has to explain herself which she shouldn't have to.  Soooo with all of that said....did I tell my friend?!  Well...turns out that her husband actually cheated with another dear friend of mine and so all I had to do was ask them both to dinner one night with their(yes I mean hers and his) spouses and you could NOT cut the tension with a knife if you wanted to.  Bottom line it all came out and no one was the wiser that I set it up!!  Ok well now I might be busted but no no I don't think they read my blog..hmmmmm rut roh!!!

2. Soda in a can or a bottle?
I don't drink soda.  I used to live for the stuff but then about 4 years ago we began the whole eat healthier thing in our house to be a better example for our kids and ever since then even when I crave a soda it just isn't the same to me.

3. What do you wash first, hair or body? That is sooo easy. You see I have naturally curly hair that is completely dry, unmanagable and course. I am so lucky...hahahhahahaha!!!  So I wash my hair first then slather on half a bottle of conditioner and let that sit in my hair while I finish my shower.  Wow why did this feel so intimate?!?! 

4. What advice would you give to any new mama?
Always count to 10 before picking up a crying baby!!  Always!!  No matter how calm of a person you think you are when you are holding a baby who is screaming bloody murder it will test every patience button you have. Counting seemed to ground me so that I was calm, relaxed and ready to deal with anything. Ok ok don't get me wrong when DD2 was born from 2 months to 10 months she cried nonstop from 5pm until midnight and Mr. M and I both thought we were going to go deaf before she ever would stop. We both would take turns holding her and walking in laps around the never worked but for some reason it helped us....and would give the warning "count to 10 it's almost your turn" and it worked. We may it through those months and didn't go deaf or lose it  not once!

5. What is your best hangover remedy?
Hangover?!?!  I would never get a hangover!!  Ok I have no idea what a hangover feels like. I know I got them when I was younger and would drink like an idiot because I thought I was cool but now I know better. I enjoy  a drink or two but never go far enough to have a hangover in the morning....besides everyone knows to take a pain reliever before you go to sleep after drinking to help!! haha

Ok I loooooooved the questions today even if you now think I am wierdo..oh well that's me deal with it!!!  PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME!!!!!  

I hope that everyone has a fabulous weekend and I will be back to update you on all the madness that is my life very soon I promise!! For reals ya'll!!!!

Graham crackers and milk....mmmm mmmm good!!

So yes I have been busy as you all have probably figured out by my oohhhh so poor blogger qualities...MY BAD!!!!

I just have enough to tell you that the travel plans are still coming along and we even added a short 3 day trip as well for my bday!! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

As I took a break though from cleaning, organizing and planning I wanted a snack. I rarely eat snacks and if I do it's usually a piece of fruit or something fast I can grab and go with. Today though I ventured out of my way to look through the cabinets.  Ok so now I have to clean out my cabinets because I had no idea how much junk was in them...but off subject I found a box of graham crackers and the first thing that came to my mind was a memory of being in mommy's day out and the snack I loved the most was graham crackers and milk. I don't know if I loved it more because it was so good or because it made the teachers mad that I always dipped my crackers in the milk before eating them and then would finish off my milk...what's the big deal anyway with that?!?!?!

So I grabbed me out 2 crackers and poured a small glass of milk and then was swarmed by two evil cracker snatchers...oops I mean my girls....who then wanted some for themselves.  As we all three sat there eating our graham crackers with milk I looked around and just though "this is nice!"  Isn't it funny how something so little can make a family moment you cherish?!

Has anything like this ever happened to you where you just realize something from your childhood you loved you have no introduced to your kids?

Trips, trip and.....more trips!!

So Mr. M and I have realized that we have less then a year left overseas and are trying to take full advantage of it in any way we possibly can.  So we have started looking up places to visit and planning our trips to the best of our abilities. Of course with the military there is always that little issue of "will they give us the leave for those dates?" but I think we have a pretty good handle on it now and we are moving ahead with any and all plans.

So far we have a nice weekend trip to Garmisch planned in August, a trip to Octoberfest in October, a cruise from Barcelona for next April, Christmas in London, and Carnivale in Venice. I am working on a day trip for just Mr. M and myself to Paris. I ADORE Paris!!!!!  We went a while ago but in case you didn't follow me back then or have forgotten we lost ALL of our pics from the entire trip!!  For some reason my old camera...we call her the devil...decided to format herself sometime between the last picture we took and when we got back home. We arrived home and I hooked her up to the laptop and all it would say was "no images"!!  O.M.G.  I was devastated to say the least!!  So we have been talking about a repeat trip ever since. Finally I just decided it would be so nice to do a couples day just Mr. M and I in Paris and so I am planning it..shhhh he doesn't know!!  I love to surprise him....even though it is really hard since he has to put in for leave or pass to go that far but I will get it all planned and speak with his people at work and make sure my dates are good and then tell him last minute to turn in the paperwork...taaaadaaaaa!!! Yupp I am that good ya'll!!!

So other then those little trips we are making some small weekend trips to get out and see more of Europe before we have to leave it.  I really really want to go to Copenhagen, Denmark but not sure if that will come to life or not. Cross your fingers that all we have planned go through and that we are able to find more things to do to take full advantage of our time here.

I want to share a few pics with you that I took the other day...well.....just because I think they are beautiful...

 Nothing can make you smile more then a I right?!?!

It was a double one and I had a hard time getting pics because the clouds were moving really fast but it's still gorgeous!

Ok happy hump day everyone and I will see you when I see you!!

5 Question Friday!!!

Woohooo OMG it has been sooooooooo long since I have remembered to do 5 Question Friday!!  I have been super dee duper busy and I have to say part of it has been my new lover.....I mean Ipad...and I am barely able to put it down long enough for it to charge so I can play more with it.  I just know my life is going to be soo much easier now that I have him...oh yeah it's a him and I have named him....wait for it......wait for it......Romeo!!! Haha yes I said Romeo..he was my ultimate dream want for a while now and finally Mr. M just went out and got him for me...what a man what a man what a man what a mighty good man!! OOps sorry that song always comes into my head when Mr. M does something incredibly sweet for me.  So let me get to these questions so I can go back to playing with Romeo ok?!?!  Don't judge me  he's really HOT!!!!

1. Do you think cursive writing is overrated? (Schools in Indiana have now voted to take teaching cursive writing out of their curriculum.)
How can any kind of an education be considered overrated?!?! Seriously ya'll the world today is becoming more and more about the money and less and less about trying to make better people.  One day we will all wake up and realize that our kids really are our future and unless we want to be put into run down nursing homes by them we better start making better, well educated and loving people out of them!  Just my opinion though!!

2. Do you still use a pocket calendar or notepad or do you keep your info on your smart phone?
Ok so I am one of those people who has like 5 different things. I have a pocket calendar I keep in my purse along with my ipod touch that has cozi on it and now of course my ipad had cozi on it as well. I also have a busy body book which I totally swear by and adore it immensely!! So the answer is I have it all and will not be giving any of it up anytime soon!! It works for me.

3. What 3 things would you save if your house was burning down? (family & pets are already safe)
The folder of all of our important documents, my external hard drive, photo albums.
Mr. M and I have already said when we finally get our forever home then we will have a basement with one of those giant fireproof safes in it. That way all the really important stuff will be safe from fire, flood, tornados and all that other junk that seems to happen to people like us who have the absolute worst luck ever!!

4. Country Mouse or City Mouse, err Person?
HUH?!?!  I am really not so sure about this question. If you are asking am I a country or a city girl then I have to say I am absolutely 120% a city girl!! I love my big cities and if I can not go to a store at 2am when I wake up and am craving something we never have in the house then I do NOT want to live there!!  Got it!!  :)

5. If you could pick ANY reality show to go on, which would you pick?
OMG OMG OMG  for reals?!??!! I would absolutely, positively choose to be on real housewives..any of them!!!  Of course if I were on there then it would have to be because Mr. M was a filthy rich businessman with a keen eye for great things well I mean of course he would have me right?!?! duhhh!!!  haha!!

Ok so now that I got to have that fun I will let you all know that Mr. M and I have been busily planning our next year. You see we have a year left here overseas and we want to be sure to see as much as we possibly can before we have to leave.  So far we have plans to go to Octoberfest, Christmas in London, Barcelona, another cruise to the canary islands and that is just the start. I still need to figure something out for our anniversary and something for Valentines day.  Sooo anyone have any ideas for any of those occasions?!?!  I am always up for any advice or ideas.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone and I will be back soon with more pics and updates on all our goings on around here!!

Greek cruise..part 8 in Venice, Italy

We were so sad that the cruise was coming to an end and we had such a great time.  It was very sad to pack our bags and know that we had to leave the ship and would not be stopping at any more fabulous places.  I do have to say though that cruising has definitely become our new way to travel. We love it!!  In fact we just booked our next cruise for spring break next year. We will be going to see Spain, Portugal and the canary islands and we could not be more excited!!

Once we got off the ship and headed to the truck..ohhhh yeah the truck...eeeshhh!!!  We got to the truck to actually take the time to look at the damage. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was and we were able to reattach the back light panel without damaging it any more then it already was. We knew we had our work cut out for us when we got home but for now we were in the beautiful city of Venice and we were going to enjoy it. After checking it at our hotel and googling a few addresses and grabbing the gps we were headed out to catch the bus back to Venice main city and start enjoying our day.

 We checked on taking a water taxi....uhhh let me advise all of you not to ask how much a water taxi costs...we then thanked the nice man and walked away very quickly!!
 We instead found the nearest vaperetto line and paid our smaller fee and went out to explore Venice.
 It is kind of hard to take good pictures on a moving vaperetto with 50 other people pushing and shoving you at the same time..
 We eventually got off the vaperetto and started exploring on foot.  We saw so many amazing buildings, churches and the best smells ever!!!
 This was one of my favorite buildings and we were able to go inside it and see all the beautiful carvings and paintings.
 There was a man trying to tell us about this bell tower but sadly he could only speak Italian and so I understood nothing!! sighhhhhhhhhhh
 A trip to Venice is not complete without seeing the gondolas going down the canals.  We waited in line for a very long time to try to ride a gondola but sadly it took too long and we had to head back to the bus before we missed the last bus back to our hotel.
I just adore this building. Isn't it gorgeous?!?!

We have already said we want to go back to Venice another time and hopefully ride a gondolla and see more of Venice. It is a rather large city and it is hard to get around to seeing it all in one day.  Maybe we will go back next year for Carnivale and get to see the costumes and the parades.  One thing we made sure we did before leaving of course....

 We bought a mask of course but....
Duhhhhh  we went to Hard Rock cafe!!!  My hurricane glass collection is getting rather large..hehe!!!

So that was our cruise to Greece and our day in Venice. I have so much more to share with you and of course pictures of the beautiful things we picked up on our little vacay but don't worry I won't forget to show you all of it.  I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday and I will see back here tomorrow for more goodies and pics!!!
