The Blonde Duck said...

I thought that's what that poor waitress had to wear to work at first!

I don't know what's wrong with my links. I copy and paste the code from sites explaining it and then fill in the rest. How do you do yours?

TattooedMinivanMom said...

What a sweet little boy! Must take after his mama.

Ok. I was starting to wonder what kind of "Thai Place" you were frequenting til I saw the caption. Good save.

I LOVE fresh air too. Must have windows open!

And, there is a Tristo(a)n in my boys K class but I can't remember if it's with an a or an o. I'll check tomorrow.

Crust on the apple pie is a crumb crust:

1 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup of butter

It is so much better than a double crust!

KDLOST said...

your son is soooo cute!! look how intent he is playing the game!

to answer your question: years ago i read the book 'the hiding place' a non-fiction book based on corrie ten boom (a dutch citizen) and her life. her family helped hide jews during wwII and also she and her sister went to a concentration camp as a result. she is just inspiring. over the years i have become more and more impressed with her... :)

anyhow - cheers to organization, cute kids, and great quotes!

Ace C said...

I was drawn to the sweet chili doritos in the pantry.

Melissa said...

I love the way fresh air sounds,smells, and feels coming through the house!! Any chance I get (which isn't a whole lot living in FL), I open up the windows

Deanna said...

I love Tristan's short haircut. Very handsome.

On the biscuit mix... bag up all those dry ingredients and freeze them. Add all the wet ingredients after you take it out of the freezer! Yum!

Erin said...

Oh girl, I love organizing and taking a bath ( with alcohol in hand) too! Your son is just precious and don't you just love the pics of your husband and him playing :) I had to laugh at the pic of the waitress ~ so funny! A fabulous post!

The Happy Housewife said...

The Blonde Duck said...

Thanks for the offer to help! I'll shoot you an e-mail tommorow!

Carrie said...

I'm glad you put the caption about the waitress in the costume. I was laughing thinking, "what kind of kinky Thai place is that?" Glad it was just for Halloween.

Liz said...

Great pics....you would fit right in here...we have many many beer tastings with many good beers - actually brew some of our own as well.

Casey's trio said...

Great post. Looks like there is alot to love in your life:)

Pumpkin Delight said...

Oh, that's a good one! I agree with all your "things".
BTW,The Shack was chosen by the person holding our next bookclub. Are you enjoying it? I saw that it's categorized under religious fiction...would you agree?

Life, Love And Lola said...

You have inspired me to makeover my pantry. I think I'll pick up some beers to sample while doing so!

Specifically, what it was that set them off throughout the bedroom. Naturally, the specific situation of penis sizegenetics was broached more than once, and these ladies were not shy with their opinions. However, what they said surprised me kind of additionally it will probably surprise a great number of guys. The true problem is truth about penis sizegenetics from two women who have experienced their share.sizegenetics matters, but bigger has not been always better. One in the girls pointed out the fact that very female orgasms in sizegenetics films (where they're generally having sex with guys who have been massively endowed) are very obviously faked.
