Anywho, back to the subject. The Derby is this weekend. Our family loves The Derby. Last year, seriously was Seabiscuit in real life, except better. Yup, I said it. It was better. The Derby had 4 horses flown in from Dubai. They had ritzy, glamorous horses from all over the country. They also had a little horse from the south that arrived in his trainers trailer. Driven by his......trainer. Mine That Bird was his name and take a look here to see what that little horse accomplishes. Just so you know, when the announcers are talking about Calvin, that is the jockey of Mine That Bird. Also the announcer they are talking to with the name of Gary, Plays George Wolf in Seabiscuit. Ahhhhhhh, I think he is strangely hot. Go figure. Don't know if there will ever be another Derby quite like this one. We will just have to see what tomorrow brings.
This is the original announcers at the time of the race. Listen to him call it, he doesn't even know which horse it is because the horse was such an underdog. Here is the link

Well today is a monumental day for this family. My Grandma Johnnie is 89 today. I can't believe she is 89. She is and has always been a shining example of woman to me. She is an amazing mother and grandmother. Her home has always ment comfort and good food. A place where we could never get enough of. I need to call her today. Happy Birthday Grams.
This day is also a sacred day for our family one of private meaning but it does hold special meaning to us. It is also a marker of time. I can't believe it has been such a long time.
I don't usually post such details about my family on this blog but since I have yet to begin a family blog, I will post this little tid bit also. Meg's last prom is this weekend. It is the beginning of many lasts for us and this girl. The month of May brings a whirlwind of festivities. I truly and honestly can't even believe that she is graduating. Let me just say this, I AM NOT READY TO LET GO! In any way, shape or form. I try on a daily basis to come up with the advantages of her absence in our lives. But it falls short, always short. She is beautiful, she is our sweet girl and she is ready to go out on her own.
Breathe mamma.It's gonna be OK.
Happy April 29th~ Mamie
PS)The spoon rings were a huge sucess, I have ordered 5 more if you would like one.
PPS)Called my Gram tonight. How cute is this? She had a wonderful day! Her boys took her out to dinner last night. Today, she went to lunch with Eleanor and Lois and sat on a patio and had latte's for hours. Said it was wonderful, had no place to hurry off to. I just love that lady! She is pretty darn amazing!(have I mentioned that before?)

I had a hard time finding it for sale. I didn't check Target but Costco and Walmart did not have it. It wasn't very popular when it was released. I had to see it in Scotsdale, but it was worth the drive every time.
I am a romantic, through and through. I also have a rebellious streak in me and this movie appeased both of those emotions. It struck my core. I just loved the relationship between Victoria and Albert. Theirs was a love that is not often found in the history of people in power. It is a beautiful story. Rent it, buy it but do watch it. You will thank me.

1-I love the lizards. I think they are so cute, especially the baby ones on my tree out front. They are so tiny!
2-I love the bike trails, along with the long season we have to ride bikes.
3-I love my hummingbirds. They are all over. When I let my feeder run out, I have a coup on my hands. I love all the birds down here, we get so many unique and interesting ones.
4-I love the movie theatres. This is quite a luxury. The kick back seats, refillable popcorn and soda's. That is living. And not to mention they have flavors to flavor your popcorn with. That almost puts me over the edge.
Well I am sure there is more, I will think of them. But for now I want to go read my book.

These Bracelets are so fun! The black one on the right and the brown and blue one in the middle are made from vintage buttons and charms. These are definitely one of a kind, and can be adjusted to fit your wrist! Right now they will fit a 7 inch wrist. The bracelet on the left is so sweet and simple. I've taken faux pearl pastel green cabochons and attached them to a flat bracelet. It is large fitting and 8 inch wrist but can be taken down. All I need is your wrist size!
[These bracelets are 19$ each]

I do have some super cute stuff to post, but honestly I just have not felt like posting it. Is that allowed?
I have been up to good and no good, in the past few weeks I have done things like stand in line for 7 hours to try out for The Biggest Loser. Go on long relaxing bike rides. Hole up in my room watching endless hours of CSI. Tote my kids around, some days I spend hours in the car. Give a helping hand when needed. Laugh, Cry, and sometimes both at the same time.
I am not really sure, I will be back though. Just keep checkin.......
