making up for picture free days...

I saw a discussion on blog frog the other day - all about what people want out of a blog... humor, blah, blah, blah, wit, blah, insight, blah, blah, and pictures...

ummmmm... and then I noticed that I have 3 text only posts in a row - which is apparently the equivalent of chasing someone from my room with a cattle prod.

So, lets make up for it here... with some random photos that I've been meaning to share but just can't seem to make a whole post out of any one in particular...

...have you read The Help?  (did that sound as random to you as it did to me?)  Well, I certainly read that book - it was my turn to host book club even... and if you've read the book you will know why my book club attendees looked at me with a questioning eye when I served this for dessert...
there is NO surer way to know who has read the book and who is just coming for a night away from their kids than to serve a chocolate pie after that book.  For those who are wondering - of COURSE I didn't... didn't DO that, but my guests were a little worried when I wasn't eating it (still, don't like chocolate - even though that admission got my poor cousin thinking that I was wrong in the head yesterday!).
If you haven't read the book - run off, buy the book, read it - and THEN come and look at that wonderful dessert with the knowing eyes of one who is aware of the horrible ingredients used in the book...  don't worry - we'll wait...



Don't you hate it when someone writes WASH ME on the back of your car?

Well, compared to our sixties peace-mobile that just doesn't seem so bad anymore does it?  Ugh - and they had to drive home like this!!!  Fortunately this is about when I switched cars for my ride to the airport...

...speaking of the airport...
seeing as I'm over the age of 18 does that mean I'm allowed to play on or near the equipment now?

...and finally - for just another bit of randomness - I bring you the jewelry tree...  I bought one of these for my husband to give me for Christmas  (yes, that IS how it works in our family...)
this one of course is not mine...  because if I were to photograph my own jewelry tree you would be uber jealous of all the fab bling that I have and tempted to break down my door...  OH - and you'd see that while the jewelry tree sounds like a wonderful idea... your average user probably should either buy two (and a MUCH bigger house with a better bathroom counter) or three of them... because in that photo - what are there - 6 bracelets and an earring?  Maybe that is useful for my guest bathroom... it will hold just enough jewelry for a week... as long as you have only one ear.


Ta-dah...  photos.  You're welcome.  Now you know why I stick to text most of the time - perhaps a photography class will fit into my schedule soon?

Cute jewelry tree. And now I feel like I have to find pictures to put up...but I don't have any immediate ones I want. Bother.

Okay, you know what? Totally worth it just for the "one ear" comment. You seriously are funny~and I'm not one to throw a compliment around like dung on a farm. Really, really funny.

I have actually been looking for a necklace tree or something like that. Where did you get yours?

gigi said...

Okay, I like randomness and pictures.

Humor? Check.
Wit? Check.
Insight? Check.
Pictures? Check.
Blah, blah, blah? Check.

You nailed it, sister.

I have a cat that would love to play with a jewery tree. All those pretty shiney necklaces dangling, soon I wouldn't have pretty dangling things. Yeah, that could be a disaster.

Garden of Egan said...

OK, my life is complete. You finally posted pictures.

Also, I know that your jewelry tree has a ton more on it. I've seen the bling you wear!

Cluttered Brain said...

oh man! I know u hate chocolate, but that pie looked FABU...
YUM!

So that wasn't your jewelery tree huh?
oh well, I still LOVE the concept of hanging your jewelery UP...

Less tangles.

I didn't see your diamond earrings...U need to post that soon, K?

LC said...

I like to buy my presents too;)
The car dust art is pretty awesome. Your kids can make art out of anything...dust, crepes, painting rocks at the reunion, what's next?
Love your posts. You have a great sense of humor!

pictures with every post? I'm in trouble. I do text only posts a lot. Except lately. Lately I've been more in the just don't post at all camp. I'm pretty sure that's not very good for overall blog health either.

Totally missing out on the Blog Frog thing. What's wrong with text only? If it has content, who needs pictures? As long as the text isn't 10 minutes long, I'm fine.

I didn't even read anything... I just stared at the pretty pictures... aaaahhhh pictures... so pretty.

LOL.

Cute post I actually did read it.

Cheeseboy said...

I am okay with just text posts, but this was cool too. Your car is very dirty, but it makes for some great fun for the kids.

If that is a conveyor belt, I have ALWAYS wanted to play on one of those things.

Very cute jewelry tree. I think you are doing great with the blog with or without all the pictures, though of course they are always nice :)
