Check it out!

Miltie found the coolest website for editing pictures! It's called Picnik! It will definitely cause you to be sidetracked from your daily "list" (if you have one) but it is lots of fun to play!!

Just look at some of the pics I may have never posted without the new "enhancing" ;)

Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!!

WOW! I missed the WHOLE month of MAY!!!

Oh my! I have been an awful blogger! I missed an entire month! Let's see if I can sum it up in a nutshell(not nearly in correct chronological order)! I've been CRAZY busy at work (trying to be two people doesn't work well for me as I have trouble keeping the responsibilities of one in check)! I went to Arkansas to help pack M.A. and shared some fun laughs with the girls! I went home for my cutiepie Andy's FIRST birthday!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY LITTLE ONE!! We made a trip or two out to the Lakota tepee #1! Had my first ever massage! (and yes, it's SO worth the hype!! THANKS SO MUCH B3!) The folks came to H-town to visit and help with one of my notorious "little" projects! (You know the kind that will just take a day or two to finish...heehee) I have managed to squeeze out a few moments out for a cold one with a few pals! Missed a couple of my closest buds on their way through town :( sweetest most adorable nephew ever is running now(from what I hear)...not just walking! There have been a few surgeries in the family! I turned a year older! THE POOL IS STILL BLUE!! WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!! We bought ANOTHER piece of lawn equipment(ChaChing says the moneypit)!! Mostly I have been WORKING (like the old Dunkin' Donuts guy---OH YEA!)!! SO PLEEEEEEZ PLEEEEZ forgive me if I owe you a phone call (which is like every friend I have)(UH HUH??!! I can hear you.....)

I'll try to upload a few pics to go along with the much belated post for all interested parties ;)!! LOVE TO ALL FROM HOUSTON!!!

A sure sign we are BACK in Louisiana! :)

Here is the tiny walker (now runner but I haven't witnessed that yet)

The monkey cake made with love by Mama B! :)

The ever cautious 1st taste!


Our own little monkey!

Airline sight not often seen these days!! I was a lucky girl! :)

Wayne & the gang packing up!!

Springtime in the Ozarks!

Arkansas beauty!

M.A.'s new place is FABULOUS! :)
