Nature Bin

Standard

The other day the munchkin was bored and asked if I could make her a bin, and that’s how these simple little bins came about. She had tons of fun playing with them and there was very little mess when she was done(always a bonus)

I used fake moss, pine cones, birds nests, our tree blocks, some fake leaves, and a few animals
Almost everything was purchased from the dollar store including the bowls, the only things not from the dollar store are the tree blocks(My husband made these by cutting a regular tree branch) and the pine cones which we found at our local park.

How Bout Them Cowboys

Standard

Today was opening day in the Cowboys season, and if you haven’t read my about me and don’t know I am a HUGE Cowboys fan.  I am more into football than most guys! I was born and raised football, my Daddy grew up in Cleveland and is a Browns fan, my Mom was a huge Giants fan, and I was born and spent a lot of my early life in upstate NY, so you would think I would be a what Giants, Jets, or Bills fan…but you would think wrong.  My sister was a Cowboys fan, I say was because now she is a traitor and she’s not a real fan at all, If you are reading this sissy, well you know it’s true, she says she is a Jets fan, but still roots for the Cowboys and the Giants.  You can NOT root for both the Giants and the Cowboys, unless of course the Giants are playing the Redskins, then by all means root for them.  My feelings on the Giants, they shouldn’t be a NY team, and neither should the Jets, let’s be real they belong to NJ and the Bills, well we all know it stands for Boy I love Losing Superbowls, or it used to, now they can’t even make it to a Superbowl. So anyways the Cowboys, my sister got me liking them and I have been a fan since i was old enough to talk.  I took a lot of slack for it living in New York, I got called a bandwagon fan throughout the early and mid 90’s and when I moved to Maryland where I spent my teenage and early adult life it didn’t get any easier, Do you know what Redskins fans don’t like? Cowboys fans! Throughout it all and the last decade and a half of losing more than winning I have stood by the boys, It’s not always easy, it’s not always pretty, but it’s always interesting, They do not call them the Cardiac Cowboys for nothing, and I am certain that is how I am going to die one day, having a heart attack watching my boys play, and I’m okay with that, really I am!

COWBOYS-1

And a little trivia for all of my football fans: Where and how  did the Hail Mary pass originate?

 

Cookouts I can do, dinner parties, well we survived

Standard

My husband and I decided to have a little dinner party here today, and I am not sure what either of us were thinking.  Cookouts, bonfires, those we can do, dinner parties, not so much.  If nothing else it was pretty comical!  I did something that resembled a mini Thanksgiving dinner and I wanted some moscato d’asti, figuring it would go pretty good with dinner, and I would have been right, in fact I kind of was.  The problem was the corkscrew that I thought we had, had somehow got put back into storage with the army gear that doesn’t fit in our house, so as our guests looked on my determined husband spent 20 minutes trying to open the wine with everything except a corkscrew.  He did get it open and honestly it provided some pretty good entertainment, who knew laughing at my husband could be great fun for other people too…

Let’s follow up with somehow we ended up watching Adventure Time, while I thought about the hundreds of ways I could gouge my eyes out and when I begged for the channel to be flipped I had no clue that I would be praying for Adventure Time to come back on, then again who would have thought they would settle on the redneck pet psychic show.   I am assuming at this point I was less than entertaining, but no worries A took over and there was plenty for them to laugh at. I mean we got questions like “What does one up mean” and If you weren’t trying to be exposed why would you make a sex tape”  How are those not fun?

Then C’s friend knocked on the door and we had 2 crazy girls trying to play limbo with an ace bandage and bed poles.

But it couldn’t have been to awful since they stuck around for quite awhile.  And I did get a thank-you from my husband, I’ll just not ask if it was sarcastic or not 😉
