We are going to see Footloose tonight and I am so excited to see it! It has been getting rave reviews. The dancing is supposed to be fantastic. I'll post and let you know how I liked it tomorrow.

Hello Kitty homemade flower arrangement

A young adult friend of the family is a huge Hello Kitty (HK) fan. My son took her to her High School Prom, so I made up a little flower arrangement with a HK theme. Here in St. George we have a Harmon's grocery store, and they have a nice floral department. For about $8 you can get a nice little bouquet of flowers. I brought the bouquet home, and "accessorized" it. I started with some HK stickers, and put them on some card stock. I punched these out with a hole punch, used some glue dots and stuck the punch-out to a bamboo skewer (used for BBQ), and put them in the flowers. You can cut the skewer to be the height you want.

I also put a stick on a hang tag, and tied it to the mason jar (cheap vase!)

I have been missing my Mapleton property......at least when it comes to planting flowers and having the opportunity to work in the dirt a bit. That is the downside of renting. Anyway, I bought a few plants to plunk into a pot. My friend, Char, brought me some of her extras. After one week, it is looking so good. We actually filled 2 pots and they are both wonderful to look at.

Pug and His Teddy Bear

I thought that Pug looked so cute this morning. He loves his Teddy Bear (it used to be one of David's bears) and will play with it, then carry it to his bean bag and usually put his head on it. Today, he looks like he is hugging it! What a funny little dog.

Do you have any fun pet photos? Post a comment with a link to your blog posting!

The rewards of getting out of bed!

I really wanted to sleep in this morning, but somehow forced myself out of bed. I let the dogs out and was amazed by this gorgeous sunrise! I'm glad I got out of bed. The vibrant colors were gone within a half an hour.

Hope that your morning was lovely as well!
