Last night we were doctoring one of LR's (many) boo-boos. I put some medicine and a Transformer band aid on it and LR was all set. A few minutes later he came back and told me he needed the medicine to take to school. I'm certain my face showed a look of confusion because he promptly said, "I need it to fix Gabe's boo-boo on his knee. I can make it aw better." Be still my heart. Y'all, I nearly melted into a puddle on the floor. My little tough boy totally has a soft side. Don't tell his daddy!

The (CDC) Center for Disease Control has issued a medical alert about a highly contagious, potentially dangerous virus that is transmitted orally, by hand, and even electronically. This virus is called Weekly Overload Recreational Killer (WORK). If you receive WORK from your boss, any of your colleagues or anyone else via any means whatsoever - DO NOT TOUCH IT!!! This virus will wipe out your private life entirely. If you should come into contact with WORK you should immediately leave the premises.
Take two good friends to the nearest liquor store and purchase one or both of the antidotes - Work Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE) and Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system. Be a good citizen and notify others of this alert. If you do not have five friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.
LR took his first spin in a kayak and was actually pretty good at the whole paddling thing. I can't for the life of my figure out what is so fun about kayaking. I'm quite the adventurer, but have no desire to even go there. I mean you are STUCK in that tiny, silly looking boat all alone. There isn't even a place for a cooler. Craziness I tell ya, but Mr. Sass obsessed, so I'm thinking I need to up our life insurance policy.

Little Red and I are going fishing tomorrow. He is PUMPED to say the least. Ever since he caught his first little fishy from the dock on Easter, he has been chomping at the bits to go again. I'm having a hard time believing his patience will be as good this time but we'll see. We pass 2 lakes going to and fro daycare and EVERY time he tells me he wants to "go fwishin in dat lake!" We are headed out on the boat, so I'm sure I'll be his "best fwiend." If you need me tomorrow, I'll be soaking up the rays at the lake with my little man and some great friends.
I'll be traveling for work at the beginning of next week, but I promise (Molly) that I'll be back Tuesday with some seriously blog worthy material.

This was the view from the chair where I happily planted my rear for 2 days straight. Ahhhhhhh!
Yes, this pic is now my computer screen saver, phone background and has been burned into my brain, thank you. Can't ya just hear the waves crashing?
Now, back to reality...

Here is the bachelorette in all her garb. Congrats, KT!
Keke and me cheezing it up at Bud & Alleys...
And our crew after a fab dinner of seafood alfredo (Thanks, Susie & KT) and before our beach house dance par-tay USA. That's how we roll.
Other gals took tons of pictures, so I am sure I'll have more for you later and don't worry our next girls ONLY getaway is already in the works!

Me: Why in the world did you roll in a mud puddle?
LR: I not. I was spwashing all awound in the water and I fell in. It was an askident (accident) and it was scusting (disgusting).
Me: That just wasn't a good idea. You need to stay away from puddles when you are playing outside at school.
LR: I will never ever do dat again. I pwomise with aw my heart.
Somehow I doubt this is my boy's last romp in the mud, especially considering how much his daddy loves to play in it. Who am I kidding? I've been known to get a little mud on my tires, too.

Here is the basket full of goodies that was waiting for Little Red on Easter morn...And here is the little stinker (bed head and all) tearing into his fabulous goodies. Yes, there is a sippy cup, shampoo and a new toothbrush in addition to candy, toys and big boy underwear in there and he loved it all, thank you very much!
We hunted eggs and feasted on a wondermous meal prepared by GiGi.

He is such a loving little thang (when I can get him to slow down for 2 seconds). I'll be so sad when he becomes too cool to kiss on his mama.
Don't be judging the inside of my messy Yukon. Why oh why didn't I shut the door?
He was checking out a cutie patootie little girl with pig tails & a princess basket...
This cuteness was the result of me telling him to stop flirting with said little girlie. And just so you know I will be cleaning the Yukon out today.
I FINALLY got his attention, but what is up with that goofy look on his face? Is that supposed to be a smile?
And here is my little lover boy just a swangin at the park. GiGi HATES this shirt, but it totally cracks me up.

And the winner is...
Shannon at Sunshine and Open Hearts
Congratulations girlie! Please email me at cassiehare at yahoo dot com. I need your address so I can send your basket and get your info to Allison. Thanks to everyone that played along. I loved reading your faves and am always excited to read product reviews from real live folks.
Wish me well at home with Little Red tonight. He can sense weakness and will do his best to capitalize on my sickliness.

LR- Dat girl can't be a pirate.
Me- What? Why can't she?
LR- She's a gurl and she's too pwitty.
Me- Actually, she can be anything she sets her mind to. You know girls can do anything boys can do.
LR- Nope, only me and Daddy can by pirates. Mommy is too pwitty.
Ack, I didn't know what to say. Do I thank him for calling me pretty and hug his neck or do I stick to my guns and continue explaining that I can be a pirate if I want to be(even though obviously I don't)? Ugh, he got me. One point, LR!

This is my cozy little corner in the kitchen. Keke painted the flowers and the desk is a really old sewing machine table. I am ready to part with the elephant lamp, but I have to find a replacement for it. Any suggestions? I also changed out some of the stuff on the shelf after I took this picture and am much happier with a much less cluttered look.
And just for fun here is my pantry door plastered with all my lovely birthday cards...
On to the living room...
This arrangement is over the couch (that I cut out of every single shot unknowingly) . It appears, some of the pictures could also use a little straightening or that could just be my mad photography skills...
This is the only picture I am prepared to show of my bedroom. It is still major chaos in there, but I love these two little diddies and am pleased as punch to have them on the wall!
And here is Little Red, who was madder than snot at me for not letting him take the pictures. After seeing my mad skillz I'm wondering if the pics might have turned out better if I had let him. Mama is no photographer. I won't quit my day job.
Decorating suggestions are welcome and constructive criticism is appreciated.
