No Words.....

I can't comment on this too much because I am at work and cannot start crying. I typically stay away from articles and reads like this because it breaks my heart but Ava's is not a story to be ignored.

Friday Deals

Kohl's always offers such great coupons. I personally love their Jumping Beans brand for JoJo for basics. I always stock up on fleece pants for winter or mesh shorts for summer whenIi get a coupon for a size or two, LOL 

Right now they have a 20% coupon in store or online.....

Also if you have never seen Sing-A-Ma-Jigs its a great toy to put away for Christmas. At just $5.40 shipped it might even be a great idea to buy a couple to keep as last minute gifts....there is always a birthday party or forgotten Christmas recipient!

All things birdy.....

I love owls, trees, sunset, gypsy decor, window seats, ice cream, and BIRDS! Not enough to have a real bird but I saw this DIY project and I am already collecting lids. I don't know where I shall put them but I certainly will be making some!
I found the tutorial on this fabulous blog and think the creator is amazing!

The Road to Fame

Ok sorry for the cheesy headline but I'm just tickled to announce that JoJo and Indy have made it to the online version of "The Bark", which is one of my most favorite canine magazines!

I'm so proud of my boys! The bond between a child and their dog is one I am happy to give my son and love watching them play!

Wild Angel Quote of the Week

A rose can say "I love you",
orchids can enthrall,
but a weed bouquet in a chubby fist,
yes, that says it all.

One Fine Cookie Morning

Needed to kill a hour with Baby bear, no directions needed, just made some cookies!

However I DID learn to feed them a full meal prior to frosting to help with the sugar high, LOL

Mixed up some color

Laid out some tools

Made a nice little mess

JoJo Approved!
