Birthday Cards.. and Family Secrets


I received quite a few cards for my birthday yesterday.  I thought I would share a few of the funny ones with you.

bdcard11I'm grateful for you… (cheese and a grater.. get it)

bdcard10If you were Jesus, today would be Christmas…

bdcard9A good Mom is like a Good Bra…

bdcard8Supportive, makes you look better and hard to find!

**if you don't know this.. I've been selling bras on eBay for quite sometime now.


bdcard6Mommy, I love You  Happy Birthday  (that pretty much says it all :))

bdcard5One of my cards was a cute pig with a heart nose.

bdcard3I receive a really cute Vera Bradley bag from the Man.. and there was a card…

bdcard2This is what the inside of the card said…  "Rachel HIDE IT" 

You see when The Man bought this he thought he was giving special instructions to his oldest child #1 on the shipping LABEL. so when the package arrived, #1 would HIDE the package, he didn't realize he was signing a card.. for the present. 

bdcard12This card was from my sweet husband… and yes.. he knows how to get stuff done 😉

Help! An Estate Sale Threw Up In My House..

The last 10 days or so I spent helping my Mother and Father in law at their estate sale.  It was a BLAST.. so much fun I'm thinking about doing it for other people. 🙂   They gave us TONS of fabulous stuff.. + We brought all the left overs from the estate sale to our house to sort out between 2 different auctions and a couple of spectacular things for eBay.   Here's what my house looks like while we are sorting…

This is the best looking part of the mess…

Pinterest February Photo Challenge Day 1: My View

I'm taking the Pinterest Photo a Day Challenge.  Today's Photo is "MY VIEW".. I thought maybe I'd take a view from our front porch… then I thought maybe I'd just take a view of what I can see where I am sitting.  The view from my front porch is better than this..

Here's what's in front of me.  My laptop, sunglasses, scissors, birthday card, iced tea (not much ice in it), Star Wars light up candy light sabers, #4's MP# player, USB Cord, back scratcher, and my Chumby (that needs a new plug)

To the right of me is this kid #5.  He woke up last night not feeling so good.

To the left of me is this kid.. #2.. He's working.  Please ignore the mess behind him AND that we have not taken all of our Christmas junk down.  Most of it is down.. we just have a few stragglers here and there.
