Easter Bunnies

Mitch doesn't often do "goofy" photos with me so it's always exciting when he does agree to one.

Some Lovin' From Mother Nature

What does the bright green light and temperature setting in this photo tell you?

Yes, today is warm.

Mother Nature is loving us right now. Yay for spring!

A Conversation Before Work

Holly: Is it too much with BOTH the earrings and necklace?

Mitch: I didn't even notice you were wearing earrings and a necklace.

Laying in bed this morning, Crickett farting in my face and Mitch snoring in my ear, I couldn't help but think

I'm a very lucky gal.

That Old Smell

Mitch and I ran errands yesterday, one of which included checking out a new store in town that sells vintage items (brought to my attention by Amber). Unfortunately the store was closed so all we could do was peer in at the merchandise. Mitch was not impressed; I, however, can't wait to go back on Friday and check it all out.

Mitch: I don't know about this place.

Holly: I think it looks fun.

Mitch: It smells old.

Holly: That's because the stuff in there is old.

I don't think he gets it.

I Tried

While taking my lunch out of the oven today, I decided to do a cute little butt wiggle in my husband's direction. Seconds after asking him "do you like what you're seeing?" the hot pan made contact with my arm.

As I was nursing my burn under cold running water, my husband asked why I was goofing off in the first place and then informed me that I had looked pretty awkward during the whole process.

So much for being sexy.

I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.

Scientific Proof

I know for a fact that spring will be here soon. How do I know this? Well, I just caught a nasty case of the spring cleaning bug. It's so bad that I've even been dusting! That, my friends, is scientific proof.

Friday Find

After finding Friday Fill-Ins, I was curious to see if I could find fun activities for the other days of the week. Ta-da! I'm so excited about this site - I'm definitely going to participate when I don't have anything else to write about!

A Little Letter

Dear Gray Hair,

I've always had a fear of going bald; this is the reason why I appreciate the fact that you've stuck around and didn't just leave when the "going got tough". What I don't appreciate, however, is your refusal to conform. Why must you stand up on end when short and refuse to curl when long? Most importantly, please explain to me the need for you to grow right along my part where everyone will see you. I don't understand why you need so much attention.

I have tried to get along with you; I've put the tweezer away and let you be. I thought we could live harmoniously, but it turns out I was wrong. If you don't change your ways real soon, I will have to take this matter to someone who knows how to send you into hiding. You've become a nuisance, an embarrassment, and I will not put up with it much longer.
