~ Like Mother, Like Daughter, Like Daughter ~


Hi friends~

I wanted to thank you for all your kind comments on our guest room~ it really means alot to us. The room holds some very special memories and I'm so glad I could share it with all of you. ♥♥♥♥

Now for a little story~


My Mammaw has always been notorious for leaving her keys hanging in the front door~ ever since I can remember....you know as Moms, wives, shoppers ~ we usually come in the door with our hands full. Have to turn off the alarm, let pets out, answer the ringing phone etc all while juggling things in our hands. I have picked up this habit~ ( although the keys aren't hanging there for long ). I like to just leave the storm door closed w/the door open to let some light in the house but I have actually closed and locked the front door behind me with my keys hanging in the lock~grrrr. The genius is the one that has gotton onto me the MOST about this~

Look what the genius did the other day~





Yep~ that's her keys! She walked out of her room while I was taking the picture and she said: " You're blogging this aren't you? " I said " Yes, I am ~ as any good Mommy would do....lol. " The apple doesn't fall far from the tree does it~



We know this isn't a safe practice but I still thought it was funny. :)

Here is a sunrise for my friends~




What am I going to do when my tree gets leaves again. :)

Have a beautiful day!

Hugs~ J.

Okay, you're really not going to believe this but I swear it's true! On our wedding night my husband left his keys in the door to our apartment. We found them hanging there the next day! I even took a picture of them hanging there and put it in our wedding book! True story. I've always been grateful that we lived in a safe area bz this was an open invitation for someone to come in, and on a wedding night no less! I had the flu so they just would have found me retching but still, the thought is horrible! I'm glad you posted this, Larry has the day off so I think I'll tease him about it again!! LOL!

How cute! Many moons ago when Ken and I were on our honeymoon, my hubby did that (back when hotels had keys) and didn't discover it until in the morning. Now that is kind of funny but scary when you think about it now days.
I don't think he has ever done it since.

I did that once and some guy rang the doorbell to tell me ! I had locked myself in and was all cozy on the couch when some stranger rang my doorbell to tell me he could have let himself in!
stop it girls!!!!
it is kinda funny that she hassles you and does it herself!

We weren't leaving until the next day for our honeymoon so the keys were actually in our apartment door! LOL! We ended up cancelling our plans for the honeymoon bz I figured I could stay home and be sick a lot cheaper than in a hotel room. It's a good thing too that we did bz Larry got sick a few days later. It was the worst week of my life! LOL! We finally did take out honeymonn, 25 YEARS LATER!! We only went 1-1/2 hours away to Salt Lake so really really have never travelled together. Someday, someday. Enjoy your "mental health" break. I just got a new boss (again, third one in the past 12 months) and I sure could use one too! I have a blog coming up soon that may surprise you and it includes you!! LOL!

Jessica: Would you stand on your head just a little bit? LOL! There, I asked but I only asked for a little bit bz it's not that great but it was fun and I was thinking about you! I have to hurry and work hard today so that I can go to Salt Lake with Jill while she tries on wedding dresses!!! I'll be working a split shift so I'll work into the wee hours of the night/morning to make up the rest of my shift! Have a great "cleaning out the garage day." Mine could use it to by getting rid of that big "hunk of cheese" in the middle of it! Did you ever read my post on that? I'll link it to you another day if you want but it was titled something like Don't let a suitcase full of cheese....! Cindy
