meet my new boyfriend

I haven't felt this close to a perfect stranger in a long time.
It was like kismet.

He goes by Uncle Dan to most,

but me?
the first time I tasted his wares it was like
"hi. you can call me Dan."

and wow!
after one taste I was hooked!

I am closer to Uncle Dan's Classic Ranch Dip than I have been to any of my other food cravings.

It's smooth and creamy.
calorie filled and tangy.

Uncle Dan really does know how to get 'r done!

I've never eaten so many vegetables!

the best part is, my hubby and kids love him too!
He just fits right in as though he's always been there.

on my table, on my plate.
and in my tummy.

OOOOOOh it's sooo good!

Problem is Uncle Dan and I have a long distance relationship,
not unlike the one I have with my other boyfriend,
Bob "Wildfire" Evans.

It's sad really how I just can't seem to find any favourites around here.

Unlike Bob,
Uncle Dan lives in B.C. in some grocery store I've never been to.

So my friend,
no blog Mo,
who initially set us up,
now also makes sure I get my supply.

Uncle Dan has completely manipulated my pregnancy cravings.
he's monopolized on all my grazing habits.

Trust me.
It's that good.

and if Uncle Dan lives in your area,
he also makes a dill dip which is heaven.
You two should really hook up!

I'm not the jealous kind.

As long as you send me some dip :)

Hi there,
and welcome to my blog makeover...
what do you think?
Pretty sharp, eh?

I won a giveaway waaaaaaaaay back from B's Blog Boutique and put things off for a bit 'cause,
I just didn't know what I wanted.

Well, Bailey took the bull (me) by the horns, so to speak,
and helped me come up with a strategy.

She's got a fabulous blog and is SUPER helpful!
She doesn't even make you feel dumb for being so boring with your choices or for not wanting something she suggests.

She just wants you to be happy!
and I am!

my header has a pic of me when I was little with my daddy.
Then the middle is a pic of the blanket that I made for my dad when he was ill.
and the last frame is a pic of my pumpkin with my dad a year or so before he passed.

The header alone is very precious to me.
thanks Bailey for all your hard work!

Mother's Day

Mother's Day was so special for me this year.
It was the first year Hubby really included the kids
in things.
Pumpkin and Bubby made their own cards this year
which I big puffy heart!
Pumpkin had crafts from school that she had made that were wonderful.
Bubby drew snakes in my card-- and I have to say,
even though he's only 2 1/2 you could actually
say they were snakes :)
Then Hubby took them to buy mommy a special book.
A special book from my favourite used bookstore!
I just love Sophie Kinsella and have the rest of the series except this first one.
Pumpkin said they even got to pay and you could tell that that was a big deal to her.
Then there was the big gift which daddy clearly got in on but I don't mind...
no don't mind at all!
Pedicures are one of my favourite luxuries and he knows it!
Especially when I'm prego.
Not bad eh?
(yes. my feet are small)
The nail colour is "I'm not really a waitress" by OPI.
I wore it on our wedding day.
Hubby bought me a bottle of it on our honeymoon.
Love this colour.
I didn't get a new mousepad...
but I got something so much more...
My family.

is my mouse pad...

It has seen some serious use.
Bubby got ahold of the tape the other day and tried to fix it for mommy.
bless his 2 year old heart!
I whispered in his ear that maybe he should get mommy a new one for mother's day...
I guess we'll see tomorrow!
Happy Mother's Day!
