Mostly, I have been taking care of a little boy with a broken leg, 3 weeks ago tomorrow, and reading lots and lots of Greek mythology....for my class I am taking this quarter; add this on to well ... LIFE and I have been rather busy.

Easter weekend

I hope everyone had a happy Easter weekend.
We stayed around the house. 
Saturday night we colored Easter eggs.

Sunday, the Easter bunny showed up!
The kids were up and found the eggs the Easter bunny left hidden by 8am.

Easter bunny left some baskets too.

I made Easter dinner: ham, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, noodles and rolls.

It was a nice weekend.

My daughter Tatum (who is 4 1/2) is completely smitten with the Girl's Bedroom from the new HGTV Green Home.
She wants this room: from the pink ceiling to the pink walls and the pink rug!

She loves the pillows especially the ones with dots!
She asked me if we could make her room look like this.

So what do you think? Is it too much pink? Have you seen the Green Home? What rooms do you like?

I personally think the pink room is really, really cute.

where I have been

I have been gone for a little while, and the reason is Ollie broke his leg last Thursday night.
He had just got out of this night night bath and was in his room by himself.

Ollie in the ER Thursday night

I was in the kitchen with Petey. Then I heard Ollie yell, "mommy help, mommy help".
I ran up stairs to find Ollie rolling around on the floor.
He calmed down as soon as I got there.
He told me his foot hurt and wanted me to kiss the bottom of it. ( his boo boo)

Ollie on Friday, he had just got his cast on. He picked the orange color.

It took me a minute to understand that his leg was hurt too, but as soon as I did, we took him to the ER.
Ollie told me that he stepped on a toy and fell.

here is Ollie with his wheel chair that he got yesterday.

He is already stir crazy and tired of laying and sitting around!
He went back to school today. I can't wait to see how well he did.
This will be a very long six weeks.

horsefeathers, Q&A

Liquid Sunshine @ HorseFeathers

Favorite season, and why?
I love Fall.Any of you long time readers will know how much I gush over this time of year.I love the weather, how its warm and sunny in the afternoons and cool and crisp in the evenings. I love the clothes we get to wear: Usually short sleeves during the day and jeans and sweaters at night. I love the smell that is in the air. I love the colors: orange, browns, greens and yellows. I love the holidays: Halloween and Thanksgiving. I love hayrides and pumpkins!

How would you describe your personal style? 
I like vintage style and classic pieces! I love pearls.

What's one weird thing you can do? (The stranger the better!)
not sure about this one. let me think about it.

Rain or shine?
Shine. I love the sun shine! However, there is nothing like a summer shower and the smells after a summer time shower!

Confession time... what's a flaw of yours?
I am a horrible speller! before spell check, I always had a dictionary.

Favorite music?
right now, I really love Kings of Leon. I love Coldplay, John Mayer, Pearl Jam, Amos Lee, and Van Morrison.Those are really just the tip of the iceberg.

Have you ever made a decision you instantly regretted? What was it?
Yep, I have. When I was about ten, I was at my grandmothers house. My little cousin was playing with her cat. She was putting it in ta stroller. The cat didn't like it. I tried to let the cat out, and the cat latched on to my arm and bit it.  OUCH! The bite was pretty deep and bled and bled. I still have a scar on my arm today.

  Who do you admire/look up to?
I love, love Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy. Both ladies' style was classic. When I dress up, I try to think about their clothing style and go from there. A more modern girl crush is Emerson from Emerson made. She has an understated elegance to. 

You've just won an unlimited lifetime supply of... what?
for my family, I would choose food. I have four munchkins with healthy appetites.  
for myself, I would choose either clothes or books { you can never have too much of either!}

If you were an animal, what would you be?
honestly, I have no idea! I think I would choose a kitty cat because they seem to have so much attitude and personality.

If you knew you were going to die in a year, what would you do with your time?
this one is so easy. I would spent as much time with the ones that I love. I would try to create as many memories as I could with each of them. I would want everyone of them to know how much I love them.

You're now a gazillionaire... where do you go to spend your money?
honestly... I would spend it on my children. I would take them on many family vacations to all the places that they want to see. I would have a fun little wardrobe too.

Classical music: love it or hate it?
 I used to really like to listen to it. I haven't in a long time, but I would still say I like it.

heights!!!!! I hate them. I don't like snakes either.

Hop on a plane and go live somewhere for a year... where is it, and why?
places I would like to see.... London, Dublin and Paris. I would also like to see Australia and Brazil.

 Are you an extrovert or an introvert?

 Would you/do you perform on stage?
nope, and I have to be in a play for class this quarter .... NOT looking forward to it!

well, here they are, I had no idea that there was so many when I started!
