Fill in the blank Friday!

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a nurse when I grew up.  Now that I’ve worked in a doctor’s office for 32 months, I know why that didn’t work out.  :)

As an adult, my dream job would be working for a company or organization that protects the environment.  I really don’t know where I’ll be in the next year or so but I do know that I want to be somewhere making something greener.


When I was a kid, I wanted to be just like Mary Ellen Walton.  I sure had the sassy mouth for it! 

I scored many a wax lip with this old girl.

The childhood costume that I remember most was THIS WITCH AND I ACTUALLY FOUND IT ONLINE!!!!  I remember this costume and mask SO well.  It was awesome.  HOT but awesome.

My favorite Halloween treat when I was a child was homemade Rice Krispy treats.  I’m a child of the 1970’s and we got lots of homemade stuff on Halloween.  Cookies, brownies, caramel apples, Rice Krispy treats.  You didn’t have to worry about folks putting harmful things in your candy bag. 

The time I got in the biggest trouble as a child was when me and Ricky were staying with Grandma when Ami was born and Grandma’s neighbor had a horse that got out of his pen.  We chased that horse down a very busy Highway 49 with Grandma hollerin’ at us to come back, waving her pink bedroom shoe at us from the front porch.  She tore us up when we got back and then Daddy tore us up when he came to get us.  I can’t even remember what happened to that horse.

I get daily inspiration from sweet toothless baby grins.

Happy Weekend!!

  1. Good memories except the horse memory. Sorry about that. Remember when Aunt Rosie emptyed her fruit bowl in Ami's bag but the homemade treats were the best. Love you
