Valentine’s Day

A couple of months late, but at least I’m doing it. I would probably have waited a couple of more days, but my friend Charity *HI CHARITY* asked me when I was going to update my blog. Oops, I’ve become one of those bloggers… Hmmm, looks like I may need to do another blog a day. Except I may not include weekends.

So, onto Valentine’s Day. First, let me set the mood for you.

We bought this blue car when I was preggo with Amy Lynne. We Benjamin loved it. It had a horrible turning radius, you couldn’t just go and get the oil changed, the dealer had to do it. You couldn’t just have a key made for your car, the dealer had to do it, you couldn’t change your headlights, you had to go in and have a dealer do it, (you had to take the bumpers off of the car to reach the headlights) You weren’t able to put chains on it. Those were just a few things that I didn’t care for. Of course, I didn’t realize a lot of these things until AFTER we’d bought the car. *cough*

So the weekend before Valentine’s Day, the blue car gave up the ghost. Personally, I was so happy! So on Valentine’s Day, we went and bought Benjamin a brand new Kia Forte. It is really fun to drive and I love Kia’s. My very first car was a Kia and I never had any problems with it. In fact, I was hit on the 520 bridge and the car was totaled. I bought the car back from the insurance company for $400 and drove it another 75k miles. Loved that little car. So I’m very happy with our purchase. No, I don’t have any pictures of the car. I’m working on it people!

So, my thinking was that if he got a new car for Valentine’s Day, I should get something fun too. Right? Riiiiiiiight. So, please let me introduce to you….






It was time, ya know? Her great great grandmother went to live in a new home.  I’ve heard she is very happy and used almost on a daily basis there.


Here is a picture of the two of them together. It’s ok, there was nothing wrong with her great great grandmother, but you know, a little bit of genetics came into play and now they have different colors! It was time for the red headed step child (Mabel) Which I have to tell you, Mabel is awesome. She works so wonderful. I’m very excited. I’ve made all sorts of stuff with her. I have a wonderful husband!

Question of the day: What is your favorite kitchen appliance and why?
