Thank You For Another Sweet Blog Award...

I have been so busy lately that I have not had a chance to post a Thank You to Jenn at That was so sweet of you to think of me and it really means alot to me that you picked me out of all of the amazing blogs out there. I do want to say that I am sorry for not posting this sooner so I hope that you did not take it personally where you felt that this award did not mean anything to me. It really does!! So thank you so much again!! You are just so sweet!

The rules of the award are to thank the person who gave it to you, tell 7 things about yourself, and then pass it on to 8 others. 

7 Things About Me:

1.) Since my son joked about me being short I thought I would tell you how short I am.. I am 5'2..

2.) Coach is my favorite handbags in the whole entire world!

3.) I love my Ugg boots and wear them almost every day!

4.) When I was in high school I had to carry an "Egg Baby" for 1 week. Well my mom made it for me and it broke within the first few days so she had to perform "surgery" and cut open the panty hose body and replace the egg. I still have it and here is a picture of it... Boy is this old!!

My mom has ALWAYS been a very talented crafter. I should take pictures of some of the things she has made for me over the years and you would be blown away. When she made my Egg Baby soft sculpture dolls were just becoming poplular. I still love this little Egg Baby. I had the cutest one in the whole entire school!!

5.) I am a major people person and I love to give!

6.) I think I have told you all that on Nov. 20th 2002 I had to have a total joint replacement on both sides of my jaw, my tmj area. I have severe chronic pain and must take pain medications for the rest of my life.

My Super Funny Interview That I Woke Up To Today...

So this morning I woke up to the funniest thing my kids have ever done to me. I woke up to this (look right above you) to my son Casey who is 12 years old who started interviewing me because I am "short" LOL. Listen to what he started saying to me during my interview. Oh, the blue cell phone was his tape recorder..LOL.. This was so funny that I could not stop laughing. This is what he said..

First he called me and he started out with Ok, so 
 "Shorty Mc 40"
(Then he asked while pointing the cell phone in my face) "Are you Master Yoda's Mother, because your not as wise as him but you are as short as him so he must get his wiseness from his father", "Is Bella going to grow taller then you?" and then I stopped him because I had to grab pictures of him. He cracked me up so bad that I could not stop laughing.. Casey can be so super funny sometimes and some of the things that come out of Casey's and Hallie's mouths stun me. Where do they come up with such things?

The first picture is Casey hiding under my blankets because he was acting shy when I told him that I was posting this on Then he came around and I was able to take a picture of Casey pointing the cell phone at me while acting like he was interviewing me for being short..LOL.
Shorty Mc 40!! Pretty funny if I may say so myself!!  ~Terri

WOW And OMG... I Won Some Blog Candy... AMAZING!!!

Well I just checked my Two Pink Peas Facebook page and I got a message from Andrea of and she had sent me a message telling me that I won her Jar Full Of Sunshine Giveaway!! How exciting!! This is So weird because about 2 or 3 months ago I had won this exact same thing from another blog but did not get back to them in time and lost it so I can't believe that I won it again.

Thank you SO much Andrea and Heart In The Details for this amazing giveaway. I am really excited and cannot believe it!! If you get a chance please hop on over to her blog and become a follower. Her blog is amazing and has so many beautiful creations. As you can see that I am almost speechless and that almost never I almost always have something to say about everything..LOL. Like you couldn't tell... hehe!

Before I go I wanted to thank those of you who have said that you were going to send Salifu a card. I am just literally stunned by your kindness and how you have opened your heart to this very special little boy. If you decide that you are going to send something to Salifu make sure to leave your return address because I believe that you will receive a thank you letter from Salifu for your beautiful card. These cards are really going to make his day, his year!! Just him knowing that so many people care about him will mean so much. I have been asked what he likes. Well, he LOVES soccer and he wants to be a doctor when he grows up so those are a few ideas that you can use when making your cards. Also, I would absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it if you would email me your card or leave me a comment where I can copy it so I can post it on my blog so everyone can see your beautiful creations!! I just cannot thank you enough for doing this for him. I really do not think that he has ever received mail like this in his whole life, so this is a HUGE deal!!  Since it is after midnight it is officially Salifu's 11th birthday!! Happy 11th Birthday Salifu. We ALL love you to pieces!! ~Terri

P.S. I will try and see if I can find my pictures of him today and try to post them later on in the day. I might have packed them away but there might be a chance that they are somewhere in my bedroom. I am going to look and look and try to find them so you can see how beautiful this little boy is.
