State Fair Fun...

My boyfriend bear and I went to the Colorado State Fair yesterday evening just to go for a walk and see what was going on. We got there a little bit before eight o'clock and pretty much just walked around and checked out what the vendors had to offer and the we went through the fine art building. We snapped a bunch of photos and just enjoyed the nice weather. It was perfect weather for shorts and a light long sleeve shirt. We are gonna head back out there tonight and maybe ride some rides and check out the crafts bulding, so I may be back with more photos tomorrow!

Dear E-mail Pals,

I got this e-mail from one of my dear North Carolina friend whom I still keep in touch with. She is so funny and always send me hilarious e-mails. Here is one i wanted to share that cracked me up. Please let me know if you take any of the precations mentioned in the letter. I know I have! Enjoi.

Dear E-mail Pals:

I want to thank all of you for your educational e-mails
over the past years. I am totally screwed up now and have little chance
of recovery.

I no longer open a bathroom door without using a paper
towel, or have the waitress put lemon slices in my ice water without
worrying about the bacteria on the lemon peel.

I can't use the remote in a hotel room because I don't
know what the last person was doing while flipping through the adult
movie channels.

I can't sit down on the hotel bedspread because I can
only imagine what has happened on it since it was last washed.

I have trouble shaking hands with someone who has been
driving because the number one pastime while driving alone is picking
one's nose.

Eating a little snack sends me on a guilt trip because I
can only imagine how many gallons of trans-fats I have consumed over the

I can't touch any woman's purse for fear she has placed
it on the floor of a public bathroom.

I MUST SEND MY SPECIAL THANKS to whoever sent me the one
about rat poop in the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet
sponge with every envelope that needs sealing.

ALSO, now I have to scrub the top of every can I open
for the same reason.

I no longer have any money, but that will change once I
receive the $15,000 that Bill Gates/Microsoft and AOL are sending me for
participating in their special e-mail program.

I no longer worry about my soul because I have 3,000
angels looking out for me, and St. Theresa's Novena has granted my every

I can't have a drink in a bar because I'll wake up in a
bathtub full of ice with my kidneys gone.

I can't eat at KFC because their chickens are actually
horrible mutant freaks with no eyes, feet or feathers.

I can't use cancer-causing deodorants even though I
smell like a water buffalo on a hot day.

THANKS TO YOU I have learned that my prayers only get
answered if I forward an e-mail to seven of my friends and make a wish
within five minutes.

BECAUSE OF YOUR CONCERN, I no longer drink Coca Cola
because it can remove toilet stains.

I no longer buy gas without taking someone along to
watch the car so a serial killer doesn't crawl in my back seat when I'm
filling up.

I no longer drink Pepsi or Fanta since the people who
make these products are atheists who refuse to put 'Under God' on their

I no longer use Cling Wrap in the microwave because it
causes seven different types of cancer.

AND THANKS FOR LETTING ME KNOW I can't boil a cup of
water in the microwave anymore because it will blow up in my face...
Disfiguring me for life.

I no longer go to the movies because I could be pricked
with a needle infected with AIDS when I sit down.

I no longer go to shopping malls because someone will
drug me with a perfume sample and rob me.

I no longer receive packages from UPS or Fed Ex since
they are actually Al Qaeda agents in disguise. And I no longer answer
the phone because someone will ask me to dial a number for which I will
get a phone bill with calls to Jamaica, Uganda, Singapore, and

I no longer buy cookies from Neiman-Marcus since I now
have their recipe.

THANKS TO YOU I can't use anyone's toilet but mine
because a big black snake could be lurking under the seat and cause me
instant death when it bites my butt.

AND THANKS TO YOUR GREAT ADVICE I can't ever pick up a
coin dropped in the parking lot because it probably was placed there by
a sex molester waiting to grab me as I bend over.

I no longer drive my car because buying gas from some
companies supports Al Qaeda, and buying gas from all the others supports
South American dictators.

I can't do any gardening because I'm afraid I'll get
bitten by the wood spider and my hand will fall off.

If you don't send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people
in the next 70 minutes, a large dove with diarrhea will land on your
head at 5:00 p.m. tomorrow afternoon, and the fleas from 120 camels will
infest your back, causing you to grow a hairy hump. I know this will
occur because it actually happened to a friend of my next door
neighbour's ex-mother-in-law's second husband's cousin's best friend's

Oh, by the way, a German scientist from Argentina ,
after a lengthy study, has discovered that people with insufficient
brain activity read their e-mail with their hand on the mouse.
Don't bother taking it off now, it's too late.

PS: I now keep my toothbrush in the living room, because
I was told by e-mail that water splashes over 6 ft. out of the toilet.

Wednesday Wishes...

This post seems to be an interesting mid-week post around here in the blog-o-sphere. So I though I would give it a whirl. Enjoy.

1. I wish I only had to work like 3 days a week and had 4 days off. That would be so awesome! Then I would have plenty of time to craft and take naps ;) I love my naps!

This to me is the PERFECT atmosphere for a nappy!

2. This is something I have wished for, for as long as I can remember. I want a tree house. I just think they are so neat and you can make it how ever you want to suit your own personality.

Aren't these Awesome!!??

What's on your wish list? Send me a link if you post wishes, I'm curious.

The winds are changing...

I think it's weird no matter when school starts the weather knows it and suddenly changes. I love the change because it's one more day closer to Autumn weather my absolute favorite time of year. I can't believe my oldest niece is already going into sencond grade! Our family's first little baby is not a baby anymore she's growing up. She is hilarious, she literally was dying to lose a front tooth so she basically messed with it until it became loose and yanked it out herself. What a nut! Then Addison on the other hand is going to school full time now too and it's so funny because this little stylish four year old has to wear uniforms and she tells my sister she doesn't want to wear blue polos everyday she wants to wear a Hello Kitty shirt. That's my niece alright.
Her are my neices when they were just little babes :(

On another note I got back from my Omaha trip on Sunday and boy have I been tired. I'm still trying to catch up on my rest. It was great to see my friends and Adria's little baby boy Emory. He is simply adorable. I call him my little boyfriend now because he literally would not take his eyes off of me the whole time I was there. The wedding was sweet, colorful, and HOT! It started at one-thirty and ended around five-ish. They served mini cupcakes, gelato, and sorbet inset of food. It was soo cute. The whole trip was nice I got a pedicure and ate some delicious food.

My dream suitcase...

This time next week I will be in Omaha. I'm super excited to get out there and see my friends and their baby. This Polyvore collection is what I would pack in my dream suitcase...meaning if money weren't an issue and I could drop 2,000 on a purse, ha! I don't think I could spend that much on a purse even if I had the dough for that. Anyway this would be my outfit for the wedding... sweet & simple! I love all the accessories too.
