Welcome

Welcome to my little world! My name is Donna and I'm the mother of one very spoiled kitty named Clarice. I was a banker for over 20 years but now I'm a SAHM and loving every minute of it. I'm a super, huge Bon Jovi fan and an avid cross stitcher. I love decorating my home with flea market finds, primitive style items and vintage items. My hubby says if the last three generations threw it out as trash it'll end up in our house as a decoration.

Happy Valentine's Day

 
 
We don't really celebrate Valentine's Day around our house because Mark has said since we were dating, that he hated that it was only one day a year to celebrate love and that was just wrong.  Frankly, I think he forgot it the first time but we've stuck with this tradition every year since 1986.  Now we celebrate St Patrick's day usually with flowers and dinner out which works great because restaurants aren't crowded and flowers are fresh and plentiful. We do a lot of goofy things like this because we're not "normal"....lol.  Mark never gets me flowers for the expected holidays/occasions but instead randomly shows up bearing flowers because it's Wednesday or he thought about me when he stopped to buy milk or it's the week before vacation, ect.... It always makes me smile.   He's not perfect but he's perfect for me!!!!
 
We weathered the ice and snow just fine but ready for it to leave.  We were lucky that we never lost power and the sun is out so it's melting away now. That makes me really happy because there's an estate sale that is featuring prims that starts tomorrow that I'd like to drop by to visit.  I know I'm not suppose to be buying anything until we get our next home but I just can't pass up a chance to "see" prims.  The sale was suppose to start on Thursday but was delayed due to the weather.  I planned on going first thing in the morning but carpet/couch cleaner is coming at 9:00....dang it!  Just a note to everyone, don't use cheap carpet tape on your sofa to keep the cat from clawing it because it won't stop the cat from clawing it but it will leave tape residue on the sofa.  Yuck!  I actually did this back when Clarice was a baby and I've tried since then to get this residue off myself to no avail.  The cleaner actually came a few weeks ago but didn't get it off so he's coming again in the morning to try again.  I hope he gets it right this time because I really like this sofa and planned on keeping it after the move but may have to rethink that if he can't get it cleaned.
 
Well I'm off to straighten up the house and make him a Chess Pie because it's become his new favorite pie.  Thanks Donna Davis for sharing the recipe with me.  Hope y'all have a great weekend and do something today that makes you happy!

  5. Me and my hubby are the same, we don't celebrate Valentine's coz my hubby tells me he loves me every day of the week and shows it through the little things that mean such a lot, like the cup of coffee he brings me up to bed every morning, six days a week, before he leaves for work, that's love :)

  6. I like Mark's idea that V day should be every day.

    Sorry about your sofa. Hope you can get it off.

  7. I think your husband has the right idea. I think when it's frequent and random and really means something.
