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 minutes...it'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!!

I want to try the lemon peel thing... I tend to get a migraine at least once every other week or once a month... ugh.

I love the idea of a vow renewal. I hope my husband and I can do one in a couple of years.
