I love randoms! TOTALLY love them....That is how I THINK. Stop by Carissa's at lowercase letters by carissa graham. She has tons of sites that are part of the "miscellany monday" ! Go check it out and link up too! It's always fun to be a part of a little blog party. Be SURE and comment on this post and you are automatically entered in the
DISNEY GIVEAWAY from the last post. That's all you have to do. No hoops to jump through... Who knows, maybe there will be TWO
SO for a little random.....
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A GREAT FATHERS DAY GIFT, VERY INEXPENSIVE BUT A TREASURE, I will be posting about one in the next few days, so you will have plenty of time to order.
Parker is having his birthday party a week early since we are traveling, and it is going to be the MOST FUN SLEEP OVER. Amanda and Micah have put so much work into it and may need to go into PARTY PLANNING. Plus he got an early present, an IPOD TOUCH and he is on CLOUD NINE. He will be on CLOUD TEN if I get him an ITUNES gift card and I will. That's what Grammy's do.
Tomorrow one of my dearest friends is going to MEET her first grandchild. Sweet Elizabeth should arrive sometime tomorrow....induction in the morning and I am going to spend the day at the hospital with her. It has been a hard nine months in a million ways, but because I walked a somewhat similar/though very different road, 11 years ago, I have been able to take her hand and walk with her on this JOURNEY. It has been my PRIVILEGE!
I am still walking...just wish I was seeing a few pounds drop off. I SO WISH that someone would INVENT a BATHING SUIT that MADE everyone look at least OK. Also, wish I did not have to search it out, that it just arrived in the MAIL!
Yesterday I TOTALLY redid the boys room. I believe in the littles having their OWN room at our house. Jack had began to climb out of his crib, so we bought them TRUNDLE BEDS...Will make some pictures and show as soon as I get a new RUG down. And I will warn you, it is MICKEY PARADISE.
I really want CRYSTAL to win AMERICAN IDOL, in case you cared. Remember this is random.
I added this to my other blog, but want to add it here...Please check out this blog and BE INSPIRED.
I don't know about you, but I LOVE TO FIND a NEW BLOG. ONE that I want to go back and read their entire story.
My BOY and his family are going to spend a week at the beach next week. They may not be able to do much "beaching" but I am hoping they get some good R & R. This has been a TOUGH year to run a Toyota dealership.
I so want to be able to SKYPE while we are on the cruise...ANY tips or instructions? Have I ever told you I HATE to READ INSTRUCTIONS?
If you were a winner recently, I got everything shipped today with the exception of one thing and I hope to ship it tomorrow.
Be sure and check out my newest fanily member in this post. He is the CUTEST!

Random is good -- I'm anxious to see Disney pics! Have a great time!

Caroline said...

Hope everything goes well at the babies birth tomorrow. Love to see picces of the boy's room soon.

Sunny Sue said...

I love randomness, too. I had every intention of linking up with Carissa today but decided that I had to tell on myself instead. :-)

I love the bathing suit idea. Mine would have to be a wet suit, though. Black. Because it is slimming. heehee

Tell Greg that my wonderful Sienna that we bought from him so long ago is still doing great. We love our Toyotas! (Hubby has one now, too.)

Bacardi Mama said...

My niece who turned 11 on Friday also got an ipod touch. She was so excited, I thought she was going to burst.

JanMary said...

Great randomness :)

my husband was used skype for the first time last week and it was very straightforward. I would just have a practice call or two before you go.

By the way, you need one more follower - I don't like that number 666!

ethelmaepotter! said...

Oh, I can't wait to see pictures of the new Mickey room!

Congratulations to your friend and happy birthday to sweet Elizabeth!

Theresa said...

I love random, that is the way my mind works best! Sounds like you have big plans and I can't wait to see the Father's day gift tip! Have a blessed day!

Nezzy said...

Take care and have a terrifically blessed day sweetie!!!

Joyce said...

Andrea said...

Have fun at Disney and blessings on the new birth.

grammy said...

I so understand the swimsuit dilemma
I heard there is a spanks swimsuit
I can't imagine how squishy it might feel (o:

Tanya said...

Random makes the world go round!!! Yea for Grandmas!!!

Sarah Broadus said...

My niece is turning 11 in July and it breaks my heart to think about her being a tween! why can't they stay babies forever?

The Mini - Maker said...

Hey Theresa! Just wanted to make sure you got my email from the other day, giving you my address. My email's been acting up and it doesn't tell me whether it went thru or not. :(

I hope you're having a great day! God bless!


PEA said...

Hello dear Teresa:-)

I'm back to posting and visiting, my bloggy break is over! Now to catch up with everyone!! lol

Parker's birthday party sounds like it will be quite exciting and I can't wait to hear all about it. It's no wonder he's on cloud 9, which kid wouldn't want an Ipod Touch:-)

Bless your heart for being there for your friend, no doubt it will be awesome to see her grandchild for the first time.

Wishing you a terrific week filled with smiles and hugs. xoxo

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Oh I am sooooo agreeing with you about the swim suit thing! I hate shopping for a swim suit almost more than I hate going to the dentist! I have the same suit I've had for years, because I don't want to go buy another one. If one arrives in your mail box, let me know, so I can try to get one for me too. Enjoyed your miscellany. Have a fun trip! laurie

billypandnikkysmom said...

If you find a bathing suit that makes "you" lok o.k. be sure to let me know I NNED ONE TOO!!!!! Thanks for making me smile!!!! I always enjoy your posts! God Bless!!

Grandma Cyndi said...

Random is very good sometimes. Can't wait to see the new room. Wanted to let you know my son in law got the job as Pastor at a so cal church, he one one of 250 applicants. So the whole family is moving about 2 1/2 hours away. We will miss having them here everyday but are thrilled for them.

Mandy from Burkett Blessings said...

Hi Teresa!
I have an award for you on my blog! Please stop by and check it out. :-)

Heart2Heart said...


Can't wait to see all those adorable and charming pictures of the kids room. I am sure knowing how creative you are, it will be great!

I love random blogs too because sometimes you have so much to say about all the different things going on but you don't want 10 different posts to tell it all. Love this one.

Congratulations on being there for a new baby arrival. I just love births of babies. It such a special time in a parents life.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Lesli said...

Cant wait to see the fathers day gift, I need some ideas! I bet the Mickey rooms are adorable and I am sure the boys will LOVE IT! Kaleb went on the Disney cruise several years ago and he loved it, I am sure you will have a blast! Happy Birthday to Parker cant wait to see pictures! Have a great week and enjoy your day tomorrow with your friend!

Here's my advice on skype- as long as the person you are talking to knows what they are doing, then you really don't have to. Because they can find you and it's simple from there.

I've only done it once and I had no clue what I was doing, but the girls I was talking to did. LOL

Honey, Does This Blog Make Me Look Fat? said...

Random is good!

Can't wait to see the room!

Erica said...

I live for random! I hope you post pictures of the boy's room!!
