heart rocks

i've been waiting all winter for these


While looking for pictures of my favorite candy i came across its history ,which i think i will share.
In 1928 , the defunct F. Hoffman and Company, of Chicago, one of the original

named Milton J. Holloway who had an idea

I will be working in the backyard this weekend. There's lot's to do!

Instead i have to work til i get tired then go back when i get rested.

around the house

It's been a really stormy weekend! I spent two nights in front of the t.v. watching
tornadoes heading our way. Pretty stressful!
So this morning i just took it easy.
I took some pictures of things around the house, some of my favorite things.
Then went on and made them cool.
That's also one of my favorite things
to do.

Oh and the bird isn't real.

I love my little people house and so do my
