C….

It is C week.

I should be writing about my fantastic trip to Costa Rica a few years ago…it was cool!

But today I am thinking of  things I am able to Check off my list.

Christmas cards. They are done.  Yippee!

Does everyone keep their list on an excel spreadsheet?

I am a little crazy with my Controlling lists…my good friends know that if they don’t send me a Christmas Card for 2 years in a row…they are off my list. That is naughty. Are you a naughty friend? 

My desk is a little cluttered with Christmas Cards…some Christmas confetti and some other Crap! Must Clean it soon.

Our Christmas Cocktail party was a complete success.

My Chocolate fountain was a complete Crock of p00h. I messed up the Chocolate somehow…but I did not CRY!

Coach was a big help…he suggested I not cook so much and instead order some platters of food. It took me 8 minutes to ponder this and then I placed the Call. Suz and Coach

Our night of “denial” was full of good food and great friends..and some cocktails!

Sushi anyone? Cuban sandwiches? Crackers and Crab dip? Crazy Combinations.

I made a fantastic salad with Champagne dressing…will share later. maybe.

My night would not have been complete without my silly, happy and laughing friend Dawn. She is so cute!!!

Dawn and Suz My girls were awesome little helpers too. I Could not have done it without them!!  

Happy Monday!

Oh Deer!

I walked out this morning and saw this:

You would think it was a dliema, but I knew what happened. We had some guys here all weekend working on repairing stucco around the house…they clearly did not care for my deer. dorks.

Those deer reminded me of these deer:

Vixen is my favorite! But Dancer, well he reminded me of my Dancing Daughter:

Did I ever tell you of her dangerously weird dexterity? I was going to photograph some of her bending parts, but decided it might make you drop your doughnut.

My other daughter? Quite the Dichotomy. She is an athlete. She is a girly girl.

She is very diverse.

I only wish my Dad could see my Daughters…He would have loved them to death.

dad, J and L 1993 He met LoLo one time. I had to sneak her into the hospital…I am so glad I did. This is the only picture I have of them together.

My Dad did love to dance…and he played softball his entire life until he got sick. How genetically delightful is that? Not the getting sick part, the dancing and softball part?

And you know my other D Word: Dogs. This morning as I was picking up my dropped deer..the dogs were running like maniacs on the dirty driveway.

I can never think of the letter D and NOT think of my Dear friend Dawn. We have been friends for…for… forever I think. Ok, maybe not forever, but at least 10 years????

Dawn has a birthDay coming up next weekend, yeah for her. I can’t wait until she catches up with me in age. any year now….
