A Little Beach Bungalow

I am moving to Uruguay
to live in this little beach bungalow...
it's perfect
no electricity
no problem
i love burning candles
no running water
might be a problem
since i cannot go without shaving my legs
but there is always the ocean
since i am a hermit
this would be perfect
atlantic ocean
not the indian ocean
which is where i have always wanted to go
did you see top gun?
indian ocean
it sounds so romantic...
of course,
my hubby is invited
i couldn't live without him
and his ability to make me laugh at everything...
and the kids are invited
we would build them their own bungalow
wink, wink

Happy Monday
wishing I was in Uruguay
wherever that is...

The Little Black Dress and Coat

If I had
a money tree in my back yard
I would buy this dress and coat...
this has tomboy style
written all over it...

Happy Weekend...

Let the Games Begin

I am so excited for the Olympics this year.
Go USA...
I have one little confession to make,
I will be cheering for Roger Federer in tennis...
Please don't hate me
other than that,
it's all about the USA kicking butt

I love the vintage Olympic t shirts from Gap
I swore I would never make another sugar cookie in my life,
but how cute are these
Olympic cookies?

just because of the title

to visit this place

What do you want to do?

I Spy...

a window open
and its July in Arizona

the smell is intoxicating
Love it...

Abraham Lincoln was a Wise Man

You cannot bring about prosperity
 by discouraging thrift.
 You cannot strengthen the weak by
weakening the strong.
You cannot help the wage earner
by pulling down the wage payer.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man
 by encouraging class hatred.
You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot keep out of trouble
by spending more than you earn.
You cannot build character and courage
by taking away man's initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently
by doing for them what they
 could and should do for themselves.

Abraham Lincoln

Happy Independence Day!
I love this country that I was born and raised in,
now, more than ever.
