Just check out these fantastic buttons I received from ‘There will be Buttons’ on Etsy! 

I was browsing the site, trying to find something perfect for my husband, when Lieutenant Dan appeared with his ice cream cone and his headband.  Could it be any more perfect?  I think not.

Of course, to order a single button would be ludicrous.  Why, the $1 spent on the tiny button would be overshadowed by the $2 shipping fee.  And why order one, single, solitary, silly button when there are so many buttons to choose from?

I mean… Nell?? A coy looking Pee Wee?? And Buzz?  I want them all!!

I did not originally want Mr. Rogers, however.  I really wanted this fantastic Wayne’s World quote, but, alas, it was on another button site and I couldn’t get it…without ordering 7-10 buttons from that person.  I might still order it.  I’m not sure yet.  I do love silly buttons. Who am I kidding? I’m probably going to order it today.

Although I’m not sure who else I know loves to wear silly buttons.  Definitely not my husband… but he’s getting Lt. Dan and he’s going to love it.  If only he were just a little more geeky…then I could order all the things that make me giggle and I would giggle all the live long day!!

Thank you, button makers of the world!!



Today it was -13…with a wind chill temperature varying between -40 and -50.  The kids had no school.  It was brutal.  It’s the type of cold the news people dream of! 

I had to work, which was fine, I suppose.  Yes, it would’ve been nice to stay cozied up in a pile of blankets with my little lovelies and dog, but….

I drank a shit ton of coffee today because it was the only warm thing to hold onto…so I don’t think I’ll ever fall asleep.  I’ll be buzzing around until the chilly wee hours of the morning. 




Check out this veggie turkey!  Isn’t it hilarious?  I’m so thankful I found it to bring to our open house today.  I volunteered to bring veggies….and giggles.

And thankfully I didn’t have to do all this work. I’ll pay extra for that convenience. 

Look at the pepper gobbler.  Ha! 

I’m tempted to stop for a coffee this morning.  Something delicious and holiday-esque.  Perhaps cinnamon or peppermint?  Perhaps my old fave Americano? 

Will I?  Won’t I?  Should I? Shouldn’t I? 

I don’t know.  I’m torn.  I’ve just been so sleepy lately and I want a good little buzz to get me through this busy day.  But I suppose I know what might happen if I do have coffee…and I’m not sure I want that to happen today. 

Severe #2’s. 

Yep, poop. Diarrhea maybe.  Painful even. 

Maybe I’ll just stick to the veggie turkey platter.  Gobble gobble!
