prim2pink ~ letter B

Here comes Judy running down the school's hallway as fast as her little legs will move. Uh oh, the principal has spotted her "Miss Judy...there will be no running in the hall!!"

"Yes Sir" she says as she stumbles over her feet trying to slow them down. She finally gets to her room and rushes in. "Mrs. Matlock, Mrs. Matlock!!"

"Judy dear, would you please quit tugging at my dress and take your seat? Class is about to begin?" replies Mrs. Matlock.

Just as Judy turns to go to her seat, (the seat in the front row right next to the teacher's desk) "he" walks in! ♥Billy Burton♥ No one could be as cute as Billy. With his mop of red hair hanging in his face and the cutest green eyes. Ahhhhh!!!!

"Everyone take your seat now." Mrs. Matlock was ready to start the day.
"Judy what was it that you wanted to tell me?"

"Mrs. Matlock...Billy Burton was a Bad Boy on the Bus today!!!"

Oh no, did she just get her secret sweetie in trouble? She sure did! Somehow Miss Judy had the idea that he needed some extra attention as she stood up, turned around and pointed straight at him. "Billy Burton is a Bad Boy!"

Billy had quit talking to his friends by now and glared right back at her.
" What?" he said.

Mrs Matlock walks over to Judy "Let's sit back down and you can tell me what happened."

"Well" she explains, "Billy took the Blue Barrette out of my Blonde hair! And now it won't ...it won't...it just won't do anything!!" she shouts. Then she quickly glances back to make sure Billy is still looking at her and she flits her hair quickly out of her face.

"Billy, do you still have Judy's barrette?" Mrs. Matlock asks.
Billy puts his hand in his trouser pocket and pulls out the blue barrette along with a small stick, piece of gum and an eraser. "Yes maam." He wimpers.

Mrs. Matlock has figured out by now that Judy was just trying to get herself noticed by the boy. So she decides to take matters into her own hands and resolve this quick. She gets the barrette and puts it gently back into Judy's hair. "Billy I would like for you to come up here and write your name on the chalkboard 10 times."

Billy shuffles his way up to the front of the room and starts writing.

Then Mrs. Matlock turns to Judy and says " When he is through I would like you to clean the board." Judy looks up at Mrs. Matlock a little puzzled and then glances over to see that Billy has turned around. He is smiling at her! Billy Burton has smiled at Judy!!!
"Yes Mrs. Matlock." She said with a deep sigh ♥

I think Billy will be Judy's BEST BUDDY someday! Don't you?

While blog hopping one day, I came across this recipe on Betty Crocker's website for "Ultimate Turtle Brownie". (Have I ever mentioned that I have no willpower for baked goods?} I just knew that I had to make these for myself my son and his girlfriend. Chocolate, caramel & nuts! OH MY GOD !!!! They are delicious!!!!
I tweaked their recipe just a bit and here it is.......

Ultimate Turtle Brownies

1 box family size brownie mix
water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on brownie mix box
1 bag (14 oz) caramels, unwrapped
1/4 c. whipping cream
1 bag (11.5 oz)semisweet chocolate chips (2 c.)
1 c. coarsely chopped pecans

Heat oven to 350°
Grease and flour bottom and sides of 13"x9" pan.
In medium bowl, stir brownie mix and the ingredients called for on box to make them, until well blended. Spread 1/2 of this batter (about 1 1/2 c.) in pan. Bake 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in large microwaveable bowl, microwave caramels and whipping cream uncovered on High 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until smooth.
Pour caramel over partially baked brownie; spread to edges. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of the pecans. Drop remaining brownie batter by small spoonfuls onto caramel layer. Sprinkle with remaining 1 c. chocolate chips and 1/2 c. pecans.
Bake 33-36 minutes longer or until center is almost set. Cool 1 hour at room temperature. Cover; refridgerate 1 hour before serving. Store covered at room temperature.

I had to fix some Spinach Salad and homemade Veggie Soup for supper that night to make up for some of those calories!!!!

Really! Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have someone just take you in there care & give you a full transformation....new makeup, new hairdo, massage, teeth fixin, tummy tuckin, no one will ever know you kinda thing? I'm sure it would be like going back in time. Probably very ego boosting. I love pedicures!
But I know what would happen here at my house if one of my kids walked in and seen a new me! They would gasp for air and start yelling "Mom's gone mad! Go call the others!! I think maybe Alzheimers is setting in or sumethin. Go tell Dad!!"
I would be the most beautiful person at that 'OLD Peoples Home' that they sent me too... for sure!!!
Hummm just a thought!

Alphabe Thursday....Letter A

Good afternoon Mrs. Matlock!

Sorry I'm late maam! It won't happen again.

You say I'm to write on the chalkboard something that starts with the letter 'A' so I can be included in your Alphe-Thurday?
Hummmm, A? Hummmm....ok
{{{squeaeeeeeeekkkkkk}}} sorry I squeaked the chalk on the board.
A is for "apple". No no no that won't work. Let me erase that & start over.Hummmmmmmm
A is for "Awesome"? No no no that won't work either. Somebody else has already used that word. (cough cough) Geesh this chalk dust is nasty!
OK I have it!!!!

A is for "ANTS". Yeah that's it...ANTS!

I hate the little buggers!! Especially in my garden. Nothing worse than stepping on an anthill & not knowing it. First you feel this little crawly thing on your toe, then you look down and there is actually hundreds of 'em crawling up your leg!Image and video hosting by TinyPic
EEEk! Then you go running to the water faucet to rinse them away & Yee Gods the water is freezing cold. Now I'm hopping in the mud puddle I just made, trying not to step on them again.Image and video hosting by TinyPic
And all the time I can see Dear Hubby standing at the window...laughing his butt off of coarse.

Ummmmmmmm....Mrs. Matlock?
Can I be excused?

I have to go potty!

I would much rather read other blogs & leave comments for them than write on my own blog! Not that there isn't stuff happening here or I don't have much to say. I just get so wrapped up in my hunt of finding such interesting stuff. So I'm still here, just hopping around.
Maybe you have noticed that I've put a button on my sidebar that looks like this ▼▼▼

I have been doing a little blog organizing!
If you click on that side button it will take you to another blog that I've made to feature the great giveaway finds that I've run across during my hopping around.
Now I need to work on all the sewing sites I have posted :0}

I'm also playing with PhotoShop! Got one for Christmas and it's not as easy to figure out as I thought it would be. Just another thing to detract from the things I really should be doing.

Did you also notice that I won Jenny Matlock's giveaway!! Yes I did!!!! I could not believe my eyes. I am so excited.
She was giving away a $50 gift certificate to Tasteful Gardens. Now I can order some strawberry plants
Image and video hosting by TinyPic to plant in those tubs that Hubby brought home for me to make a raised garden in. She lives in Arizona & is having nice enough weather to still have a garden. Now she has me in a gardening mood. Even though I still can't see anything green in sight here right now. Just a frosty white. A girl can dream though!!!
Jenny is such a generous, funny and well-liked lady. Her daily posts are so creative. You can't help but strike up a friendship with her. So go tell her I told ya to stop by.

I've also been working on some Easter things to get my Etsy shop a going again! Sneak peeks ;0}

I'm really thinking of quitting the booth I have at a local shop and just trying to sell on Etsy. I'm finding it a little hard to keep up with both. With the economy the way it is, I'm just barely selling enough things at the store to pay for my rent. There isn't much profit in that for me, just for the store owner!
Looks like I have some serious pondering to do. So I'm going to go get a cuppa coffee. Oh darn! The peanut butter cake is gone :0{

♪ ♫ Hi HO HI HO It's off to work I go ♫ ♪

Yay...We're all feeling much better now that the flu bug has left.
Til I realized that I haven't picked up a paint brush or threaded a needle since before Christmas.
What???? How can that be?!
Well how's that for already getting behind?
So I'm headed to the craftroom right after I write this post.

Hummmm...I could use some energy. I think I'll get a piece of that peanut butter cake and a cup of coffee first.
Diet, you ask! It's a couple of months before I have to fit in that bikini. RIGHT???

Do you see my dilemma here?

Anyone know how I can get the border off from around my pics and siggie?

Somebody is shaking up the snowglobe again!

Remember those cute little bottles filled with liquid and they had some cute little scene on the inside. And when you turned it upside down and then back up...the sparkly little flakes would fall gently down?
That's what the scene outside my window reminds me of. Gently falling snow falling in my back yard. It looks so beautiful and calming (as long as I'm not the little figure inside the bottle, LOL) We are expected to get about 6" by tomorrow. That's OK, I've got enough of everything to keep me comfy & not starving for a couple of days. Just plop the GD in front of the TV, give me a hot pot of coffee & lock me in my room till its over.

I haven't been blogging for a few days because we have been passing the stomach flu around to each other. One person at a time so it can drag on forever. Why am I the only one that can stomach cleaning up the mess? Hummm that doesn't seem fair. Needless to say, Ive been pretty tired lately and been trying to catch up on some lost sleep. Everything seems to be over now, thank goodness.

I am so ready to get started on some new craft projects!!!! I've been kinda interested in making some quilt projects this year along with some dolls and some painting. I have some house projects to finish too. So this will be another busy year for me.

I hope all my new blogging buddies are doing well and hope to hear from ya'all!
