This is my 4th week to post a blog on Twyla Tuesdays. So far I have not been real wordy. I was not born with the ‘gift of gab’. I realized that one of the things I enjoy when reading other blogs is getting to know the blogger and hearing what their daily lives are like and their adventures. I will attempt to let you in my little world on this post.

I have two great kids, one you know, Lindsey, my inspiration and companion that I don’t know what I would do without, the other my son, Jordan.

He is very special, treats me like a queen. I don’t know how I got so lucky.

I have three dogs Muffin, Spencer

and Buffy (who now lives in heaven).

Oh, I also have a husband that I have been married to for 29 years! I can’t forget him! He works at the post office.

I have one best friend(BFF for all you texters), her name is Susan and it is our job to spoil her.

We did this even before she was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 1/2 years ago. I am very happy to say that she is now cancer free! Friday nights belong to her. She comes over and we eat what she wants, watches what she wants, paint her toenails, straighten her hair and give her massages!

I grew up with her and neither of us had sisters so we have always considered each other sisters and my kids call her their aunt.

I hope I haven’t bored you all too much and you didn’t stop reading after the part where I said “I have two great kids . . . and you started skimming to see if I posted any pretty pictures.

I found an absolutely amazing blog this week called Knot Garden. I am sure she is my long lost sister and we were separated at birth. She makes the most beautiful quilts (which I can’t), her knitting and crocheting are sooooo pretty. Hope you will enjoy it as much as I have.

Wishing you much happiness! Twyla

Hi Twyla,
Thanks for visiting my blog & leaving such sweet comments. I agree with you that this blogging is a lot of fun & I can hardly wait to check on my favorites every day.
I have been peeking around a bit on yours and I know I am going to love it. I love your Barbie posts and I have a large collection of vintage children's books too. I just can't resist those sweet graphics.
How nice that you and your daughter are sharing a blog. I will be visiting often.

What a sweet family you have! I laughed when I saw your husband listed AFTER the dogs ... that's something I would do!

I think that's so neat that you've had a best friend so long. I've never had that kind of friendship. My sister does and it is so special to her too!

You have a very nice family and I wasn't bored at all!!
