A party, a holiday and a national Holiday.

We hosted our Company party a few weeks ago and it was a great success! We had over 90 people attend this year; it was lovely to see so many people enjoying themselves.
Of course, a couple of the people are my favorites.

Wearing my wedding pearls; Mom would be proud!

Christmas was fun. Different, but it was fun. We celebrated on Christmas Eve with all our regular people (12), but not in our regular family room/kitchen since that might not be done until 2022!
This year? We were in the Craft room. (which is also the laundry room, the office, the dogs room, my makeup/vanity room, my workout room, our kitchen and our dining room)
We’re not just multitasking people, we’ve not got a multitasking house!!!
We did a potluck and it was fabulous!

When you run out of chairs for dinner…..

Guess who turned 20 two days after Santa’s arrival?
No, not me, but thanks for even letting that thought cross your (apparently senile) mind.
Our little Lindsay is no longer a teen.

She’s always been one of my favorite children. She’s doing great in school, stays busy with her sorority and hasn’t been arrested ONE time.  (See why her day is a national holiday?)
She and her sister are actually moving in together late January. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? 

I hope ALL Of you sweet people have had a nice Christmas. Wishing you a beautiful, healthy and joyful 2016.



Do you remember me? I remember you. I don’t always remember ME, but I remember you.
And Adelle. She’s very memorable. But who isn’t ready to say GOODBYE to that song already.

Lots of happenings at La Casa De’ Busy Bee. In case you know actual spanish, I don’t.

Lolo has recently moved back home. Temporarily. We’re happy about this. Why? Cause we weren’t happy with her choice in a partner….it took her some time, but she’s come to the same conclusion as we did 5 minutes into the relationship. He’s NOT worthy.

So, she’s back home for now and with her comes her baggage.


She adopted him from the humane society a few months ago.

If you’re a mathematician as I am, we’re up to THREE dogs now in a matter of months.

He comes with his own battle wounds (burns) too; we have no idea what happened to him.

He’s sweet and jumpy. Like Tigger.
He’s also a cuddler. Like Suz.
He’s 17lbs of love. We think he’s part Basenji and perhaps chihuahua. Perhaps 3 years old.

He and Callie are the best of friends.
Cocoa is kinda like the third wheel….*sigh*

I feel like I need to tie a pork chop around Cocoa’s neck so someone will play with her.
What? Well, according to my Dad, that was the only way I had anyone to play with as a kid.

See why I am the way I am?

We’re making progress on our house renovation too. Not fast enough for our liking, but we’re trying to be patient. We’re SO thankful that we are even in the position to do this….so, we’ll bide our time.

I’ve got men coming and going around here ALL day long.
Hopefully the neighbors will still respect me when this is all said and done.

Happy Humpday.

Bee thankful.
Bee grateful.
Bee someone’s hero.
