Order Up, Cowles & Williams

Williams full

Here I am, cleaning old photos off my phone again. I discovered my phone only holds 2,000 photos before it just shuts down and won’t take any more pictures. Can you believe that? Only 2,000 photos? I mean come on, I used to get at least 12 photos out of my very first camera… my Polaroid Instamatic. So anyway, delete, delete delete which means I found a bunch of stuff I never got around to posting.


Throwback Thursday – Little Piggies

Brown Paper package

It’s ‘Throwback Thursday’! That’s a thing right? If it isn’t it is now. Actually it’s just a cute title I’m giving this post to make it look like I had every intention of writing it a good five to six months late. So let’s just set my flux capacitor dials back to August of 2013. What? Were you expecting a trip back to the 1950’s ‘Enchantment Under the Sea’ dance? Sorry, nothing that exciting. We’re just going back to last August when I was invited to a baby shower for my beautiful little cousin Malaina. (I for some reason tend to call all of my cousins kids “little cousins” even though many of them are now grown adults as is evidenced by Malaina’s belly.)

I put in an order to sister Kris for some of her cute little burp rags (peas and carrots this time) and then wrapped them up in a “brown paper package all tied up with string” (just sang that as I typed) and headed out in the August heat (remember that August heat? I can’t believe I miss it) for a baby shower in the country.


Winter Song

Sunday, February 16th, 2014


Okay, I have a new favorite musical event. If you read my blog on a somewhat regular basis you will remember me gushing last spring about my alma mater’s production of “Fiddler On the Roof”, well here I go again… let the gushing commence. Saturday night I attended my school’s “Winter Song”, something I’d never done before. It’s been around for several years and for some crazy reason I’ve never gone. I won’t make that mistake again, let’s just say I was blown away.


An A’Maze’ing Valentine

Friday, February 7th, 2014

My Web-Guru, Photoshop Instructor, All Around Technical Advisor, Like Minded Television Watcher (we watch all the same stuff and discuss daily) office mate across the hallway made this “A’Maze’ing” valentine for his two adorable daughters to give to their classmates for Valentines Day! Oh, did I mention he designs mazes? He makes one every single day and posts them on ericjeckert.com. This is such a great idea I just had to share it. Download at your leisure.

Valentines Day… Bah Humbug!

Love Black

I’m really not sure how it happened. I don’t know what got into me. It must have had something to do with all of those Valentine’s Day pins that flooded my Pinterest page the moment the clock struck midnight on New Years Eve. You know how it is … “On to the next holiday! Full steam ahead!!” All of that red and white cheeriness slowly crept into my cold, dead heart and made me do it, or we could argue, I was just hoping to make a few bucks.
