Miscellany Monday

Is it really the 3rd Monday of 2013?  If I'm reading my calendar correctly, it is.  And, it is the first Monday for the sun to be shining brightly here in NE Louisiana.  This week if off to a great start with sun and being miscellaneous with Carissa.
Having fun.........
The Princess came to play this past Friday and she had fun with my Mardi Gras mask.  A little lop-sided but she eventually got it lined up with her eyes. ~smile~  Her Great Aunt and Uncle were here and she decided that she wanted to wear Susan's socks and she had more fun running around in those. They look like leg warmers on her.  Isn't it amazing what simple things can occupy these little ones?  Perhaps we should take a lesson from them.

Gotta love a bargin....... 
My sister in law and I did a little shopping this past Saturday.  I rarely shop with anyone, but my Hubby's two sisters are great fun to shop with.  They have good taste, good ideas and offer great advice.  Our first stop on Saturday was to Chico's (one of our favorite stores) and we found some great deals in what we call "the markdown corner."  The top two items were half off and then an additional 30% off.  The bottom animal print sweater/jacket was "only" 40% off but it was just too cute to pass up.  When I first looked at the  sequined jacket I thought I would have no where at all to where something like that but the gals helping me told me that all I needed to do was put on a white tee with that jacket and a pair of jeans and I'd be "good to go."  Well, would it ever, ever occur to me to put that type of jacket with jeans?  Absoluely NOT!  But, if I saw that combination on another gal, I'm sure I would think it was snazzy.  I did put it with black pants and a black turtleneck yesterday morning and wore it to church.  And, I did think it was snazzy and especially for the way discounted price that I paid for it. ~smile~  Yep, gotta love a good deal! And, can I just say that it was great to get out and have some "girl fun." ~wink~

Meet Chelsea Reagan.............

 Even before she was born, almost two years ago, little Chelsea has been prayed for and she is now finally home with her forever family.  She is the Granddaughter of some dear friends of ours.  Their son and his wife and their two sons have been in China for the past two weeks finalizing the adoption of Chelsea and they all returned home this past Friday afternoon.  Chelsea took to her "new" family like a duck to water and has never missed a beat.  What a blessed little girl!

Our little cowboy.........
I'm thinking this picture needs no comment.  Clancy is "right at home" on the back of Shug, but his CiCi still thinks that he is a mighty little fella to be on such a BIG horse.  Have I told you that he's coming to see his Poppa and CiCi on March 9th?  His Momma will be on Spring Break and they will be spending a few days with us.  That is exactly 48 days away. FYI - this photo is from a text message that my daughter sent me.  Not bad is it?  Isn't it amazing that we now have cameras that also serve as our phones. ~chuckle~

Laughter, the best medicine........
