Check out my wall y'all

I have a favorite wall in my house. It's the wall that holds my daughter's artwork. All the years that we've called this place home, my kitchen wall has been our own little art gallery. I painted three rectangles on my wall (three different colors), placed frames on top of the rectangles, and ta da -I ended up with permanent mats! From the beginning, pictures have adorned this space and have been displayed in all their splendor and grandeur! You never know what you might find here... a giant finger-painted butterfly, a floral watercolor, a colorful abstract, or the more refined work of an 8th grade artist (as shown)! This wall has become a wall of memories... when I think back, I can remember gallery worthy pieces that were handmade just for me! Wow! Which brings me to this question...

if the shoe fits...

I must say that this shoe certainly does fit my personality, being a lover of ribbon and all. I found these half off - just $16 and some change. And talk about can match them to almost any outfit by just changing the ribbon! Aren't they too cute?

The Champ

da da daa dada dada daa da da daa dada dada daa dada da dada daaa dada da da daa da daaaaa...
(That's the Rocky theme song, in case you didn't recognize it...we're singing that at our house these days!)

Yes, we have a champ in our midst. Our DD took first place in the discus event at her track and field tournament ... and, as you might imagine, I'm one proud mama!

Special Delivery

This is what I had delivered for my husband this morning!

Of course, I'm just kidding! I don't even know what that thing is...and it's almost as big as my house. Anyway, I wish I could have it delivered to my husband, because it has reeeally reeeally BIG tires and it's green and yellow...yep! he would LOVE it and LOVE me for it!
