A visit to Aunt Jenny's :)

Aren't they the cutest ? Jack & Jayci came over to visit me the other day with Grandma. They love to play "rocket ship" on my hardwood floor. It's a great workout for me and a lot of fun for them . They go right to the blankets and pull off a pillow from our couch and lay down . Aunt Jenny let's play rocket ship!! So I wrap them up tight and pull them around as fast as we can and go into spins. They just laugh and giggle! :)I sure do love these two cute monkeys! And of course if Uncle Matt is not home they ALWAYS ask "where's Matt"??. So neener neener Honey I had them to myself this time. :)

~Happy St.Patrick's Day~

The Wearin' O' the Green

Today is the day fer the wearin' o' the green.
Today is the day when the little people are seen.
Today is St. Patrick's Day, so if ye'r Irish me lad,
Join the celebratin' fer the grandest time ta' be had.

Ya' put yer hand up in the air, the other hand on your hip.
Ya' tap yer toe, ya' tap yer heel, ya' bounce yer knee a wee bit.
Ya' prance 'n dance around the room, n' circle one two three.
The saints be praised, I must admit, ya' all look Irish ta' me.

Missing you on your Birthday...


Happy Birthday to my Grandpa Elies. I miss he and Grandma both SO much! My Grandpa has been gone for 24 years. I sure wish my siblings and cousins and I could have had him with us longer. Jess and I may be the only ones that really remember him. His nicknames were- Stretch and Dune Daddy. Stretch from his tallness and Dune Daddy from all the sand rails he built. I remember him always out in the garage tinkering and his peanut M&M's he kept in the fridge. I would always want to give him a manicure. I was between 6-8 when I would do this. I would trim his cuticles and DIG under his nails. Poor guy.. He was a good sport, my Dad tells me that he would just sit there and try ever so hard not to flinch. It seemed I would always make him bleed. I remember another favorite memory of Grandpa. Him taking Jess and I to The State Street grill in one of his vehicles he was restoring. There was a hole in the floor from a manual transmission that was once there. It was so cool to see the road under our feet. My mom and I would always make homemade sugar cookies that were four leaf clovers for Grandpa on his St. Patrick's Day Birthday. I love you and miss you everyday Grandpa.

Jazz Game !!

Matt was given some Jazz tickets for last Friday night. It has been years since I have been to a game. I used to be a big fan, but got really bored of it. It was a nice change for a Friday night. We had a lot of fun with Chris and Talmage. It was actually a pretty good game and they won! Thanks for a great night babe! Love Ya!

Introducing... Our Newly Remodeled Guest Bathroom

We FINALLY finished our guest bathroom. Yeah!! Next project will be our bathroom. We did new bead board and Matt tiled the bathroom. I wanted a bright happy bathroom. We used a lot of decor that we already had and changed it up a bit with paint and glaze effects. I love paint and glaze ! It can work wonders! The only thing I would really like is a new bronze faucet to match the dark hardware. I know the perfect one. Maybe the Easter Bunny will bring it ? ;)

My Humble Piece of pie...

I was thinking whether or not to post this, but what the heck. Why not? I was having one of those days yesterday for a lot of various reasons. I think it would be safe to say I have had a lot of built up stress these days. You know when you are being pulled in all sort's of directions? Having to be here and there and do this and that all in the same moment. I have come to the conclusion a lot of this is my own fault. I just need to learn to say one simple little word. NO.
After another 12 hour day at work yesterday feeling completely frustrated by people that don't even know the first thing about their own job. Being sick of picking up their slack and having to deal with frustrated patients and employee's from these people really got to me yesterday. All I wanted to do was go to my cute little niece's birthday party and see my family. Long story short we were late. I was on the verge of cooling off to be with family. Trying to remain calm from my frustrations. I did a good job of it too. I just kept thinking one more thing today and I will snap. Well.. This is that one more thing and I did snap, but not in a really bad way. I just cried most of the night in front of my cute family they were so concerned and sweet. I think they are used to seeing me be a pretty tough girl that does not crack under pressure. Can I just say though I feel so much better today after my cry and realizing all of the little things I was "sweating" are not that big of a deal. I have a wonderful life, husband, family, job etc.. Things could be a lot worse than they are. So today I'm truly grateful for my blessings. And it is just a car after all, but I do LOVE my car. We work really hard for the things we have. And if anyone knows me I love a spotless car. So hopefully she comes back to me good as new.
Oh.. I better say a bit on how it happened. There was just a little accident with some kids playing in the truck across the street. I'm so thankful they were not hurt. And that it was not a hit and run.
