Hot Date!

The other night I spent some time w/
Theodore while his mommy and daddy went out.
It was a great time and lots of fun was had!
Some of my favorite parts were.
*When Theodore asked me if I was pretending
 to be his mommy when I made dinner.
*When Theodore's brother woke up and was
very unhappy. Theodore sung tiny a song
about death. He and his dad had had a deep
talk about how long people and pets live
and about when they die. I am sure Little Linc
was comforted by the death song!
* I couldn't get Little Linc back to sleep
after rocking him for a long time.
So I placed him in his bed and sadly he cried.
I felt upset by his crying. Theodore  then reassured me
that "Sometimes you just have to let him cry
a little so he will learn to go to sleep!!" I knew he was right 
and I felt happy to know that the three year old in the
house had things under control.
*The following day was mommy's birthday.
Theodore and I decorated the place and
he really wanted to hide and jump
out and surprise his mommy. Where
does he learn this stuff? I asked him
to do it in the morning when mommy would REALLY
be surprised. Wonder what time her wake up
call was?  
*I loved when Theodore would reenact a conversation
his mommy had w/ him and it sounded just like her!
*I tucked little man in bed but didn't pull the covers up.
It was warm and he had on warm jammies.
Theodore looked at me and said.
"Ummm I need these blankets on top of me."
What was I thinking!
Tiny people are the BEST people!!
Love you Fodie!!


I have some stuff to show and tell!!
So they have a channel. There post every few weeks.
They are cute quirky thrift and wear glasses!
Did you ever watch the PBS shows like 1900 House!? 
I loved it in high school.  I found The Coal House.
Last night and I love it!
Studio 5? Yes please. There has been some goodies as
of late. Check em out!!
What do you have to share?

Clock it!

I like clocks. I like clocks enough to collect them.
I am trying only to spend money on needs
and not on clocks. However when
this little fella called my name
and his sticker said 2 dollars.
I answered back "OK!"
This clock came w/ a yucky pinkey
flesh color. I thought I would spray paint it.
Then I remembered this post from 4 Men 1 Lady.
I thought I'd strip this baby down to raw metal for
that industrial chic look.
I lost the thumb print on my left hand
but after 15 minutes w/ a can of striper
and scrubbie this darling looked like
a shiny new quarter!!
I think I sweated a gallon of water but it was so worth it!!
Hope your summer is delish!!
Do something un expected!!


This house always makes me wonder!!
*I love small conversations my nephew (Eli) has w/ him self.
He is so animated and loves every thing dramatic!
I noticed him place a large yellow rubber band on his head and
admire himself in the mirror. The rubber band was better then
a gold crown in his eyes.

*I love that Eli reminds me often that "Heavenly Father makes thunder!"
*I stood at the side of the road while watching Elder Boyd K Packer's
family drive by to lay him to rest. I noticed a small sign saying "Welcome
Home Elder Packer" It was quiet and reverent. I wish
all people had such an amazing send off.

* I love that I just made a phone call and forgot
the last name of the person I was reverencing. Oh my!!
*Look up my sister's new art endeavor on Facebook.
Spray Baby is her new store front!!
*I could eat my tiny nephew Lincoln w/ a spoon!!

*My sisters family has been so so sick w/ the flu!!
I am so grateful for health!!

* My brother sold his house and it couldn't be
anything but wonderful!!
*I am tired of being HOT and poor!!

*My sister had some stubborn black marks on her
carpet. I whipped out the hair spray and TA DA
they are gonezy!! WOOT! Woot!
* I hate DI regret!!
* I love summer rain!

*My favorite yummy lunch date involves The Corner Bakery!

**I love that the library emails me to tell me my books
are almost due!!
Happy Summer!!

What is happening here?

My darling nephew Eli (2) was helping me look for a shirt
for his mommy to borrow. He looked at the pile of clean clothes and said
"What is happening here? I don't know what is happening here!!"
I guess the kid isn't used to huge amounts of clothing in piles!
Poor fella!!
New favorite You Tube friends.
You can thank me later!!

    The hand of the child on the piano
I love my nephew Fodie so much.
He can take me or leave me.
I mostly bug him lately. Yesterday was a rare treat
We played a little all day! It was an exciting moment
when his daddy fired up the new yard sale keyboard.
Little brother Lincoln crawled right up to the key board and
pressed his tiny fat baby hands on the keyboard.
Fodie not to be outdone pressed his hands down hard also.
I asked Fodie nicely to take his hands off!
Fodie looked and me perplexed and said
 "Auntie I can't take my hands off!"
Looking at his hands and looking at me!!
He had never and will never remove his hands from his wrists
and honestly wonders why I think he could or would!!
Love that Fodie!!

I did the raddest thing last night.
You should do it too!!
 I hate hearing how toxic everything is.
 I keep hearing microwave popcorn is toxic.
 So last night I made popcorn in a brown bag.
It was DELISH and so darn easy. I felt like MacGyver!!!

Happy Spring!!

I read about this book on a blog. The whole idea of
it sounded intresting to me. It is about a woman who loses
all her money in a bad investment. She is rich one day and down and out the next! 
 She goes from riches to rags in
one day. I loved to see how this woman was forced to 
look at life diffrently. It made me have very deep thoughts and
think about money diffrently. This book was very profound to
me and really spoke to me at this little rough spot in my life. 

**Disclaimer: This book does used the F-word about five times. 
Also this woman wrote a book that is about sex. It is mentioned a few times. 
I just skipped over those pages because they were a bit much. 
My library does not own this book and I had to borrow it from and
inter-library loan. FYI.

My new favorite thing in the whole wide world. 
(or not) is You Tube. I love to see what people
buy at thrift stores, dollar stores, yard sales
dumpster dive..ect ect. 
So I will be posting some of my favorite channels
in the next little while so you can partake of the joy too!! 

Happy Spring!!

Life as of lately!!

I will post my own photos again when someone
teaches me how to get the photos off my phone and on the blog!! 

*My favorite over heard conversation today. A friend was passing out mints during sacrament meeting The mints must have reminded Ms. E of gum. . Ms. E (4 years old) stated "sometimes when I chew gum it' slips right down my throat!"

*Tonight I sat down at a table of strangers at a wedding reception. I noticed the family next to me had accents and asked if they were from New Zealand. The woman stated they were and then said "You're Heather right? I know you from Facebook. Hello....Awkward long pause and lots of blushing followed!!

*Conversation I had today w/ my darling friend Benjamin (6 years old).
Me: Hey Ben who is the baby in this picture?
B: It's Jesus.
Me. I don't think it is Jesus. Is it you? ...
B: No it's Jesus!
B:Why don't you think it is Jesus?
Me: Well they didn't have disposable diapers when Jesus was born. And sadly they didn't have cameras.
B: Oh I could be wrong!

*Yesterday at church I noticed a little lady (2/3ish) doing jazz hands at me. I gave her a little wink wink and went about my business. A few minutes later she flashed the hands again! I noticed then she had noticed that we sported the same pink nail polish. I acted shocked and overly pleased, pointed to my finger nails and at her and gave her the best mid meeting jazz hands I could offer. We will be nail besties forever!!

*Funny how upon seeing my grade school teachers I become the child I was!! Saw Mrs. Romer (2nd grade) tonight and was all blushy and said in a tiny voice "Hi Mrs. Romer!"

Today my brother called in dis-stress.
He needed to complete a punch list by
 tomorrow for an inspection on his house.
 My mom and I went up to help. Upon arriving
 we could see how little we were getting done.
 My mom walked next door and talked to the
 neighbor (who happened to be the bishop)
w/ in 20 minutes 10 or more men (& young men)
 were there to help. I told my brother
 "It's a modern day miracle!!"
So grateful for kind people who do good even
 when there is no physical or monitory reward!
 Great reminder of the importance of service is!! Gushhhh!

I always resented CPR and first aid training.
It takes so long and it is so darn yearly!!
Today I was in the store and needed to help
a mom w/ a blue and limp 9 month old. It was so frightening!!
I was able to do and remember all that I needed
to do and pass the tiny off to EMT's.
Everyone please take a class!! You can take a class online
and you can do it for family night. In courage it in your
wards for adults and youth. I just felt so blessed w/
knowledge today! Empower yourselves!!
