Hey Y'all!  I hope you're all having a good day today. 
One minute the sun's out and the next minute it looks like the bottom's gonna fall out.  I can't decide if it's gonna rain or not so we'll see.
I am SOOO excited!  I entered a giveaway over at Linda's Blog, A LA CARTE and WON!  Thanks Linda for hosting the giveaway and the sweet things you said in my email that I just received.  Also, thanks to Erin at THE VINTAGE PEARL for my necklace...before you even make it!  I know it's gonna be awesome!!  This was my favorite necklace Erin had in her shop:
 Now...after getting home from work yesterday, I had planned on getting me a good cat-nap on the couch since Robbie was with his MiMi for the day.  Instead, I chose to watch the episodes of "Little People, Big World" that I have had on the DVR for the last month and get caught up.  Not a good booty is dragging so far behind me today....actually think it still may be on the back porch steps somewhere...hee hee
Speaking of Robbie and yesterday....
He spent Monday night with his Pop Pop and Mimi (Big Daddy's parents).  They both work in law enforcement and have been working the night shift for awhile.  They have missed having him spend the night so after we ate Japanese Monday night, Robbie went home with them.
Instead of taking Robbie to daycare on Tuesday morning, Mimi decided to take him with her to a Women's Law Enforcement meeting in Raleigh, NC.  It's about a 3.5 hour (or so) drive from here to there but she had wanted him to go with her.  He did great...but...while she and one of her friends were giving their presentation, Robbie says, a LOT too loudly, "MiMi---I have to go POOP!"  Whew-wee....MiMi told us that everybody in the room busted out laughing and thought it was hilarious!  All I can say is, "Thank you Jesus, that I wasn't there!!!" because I would have crawled my big tail underneath a chair and hid in the fetal position!  hahaha!!
After we got home, had supper, got ready to get ready for bed (yup--you read that right), my phone rang.  It was my mama telling me to go outside and look at the corner of the house.
For a few years I have been aggravating my daddy to make me a flower for my yard.  He made one out of tractor plow disc know the big circular thingies that are on the back of the plow of the tractor?!  He made a huge flower for my little sister and attached a ladybug to it and put it in her yard.  This thing is the size of a basketball goal or bigger but it's adorable.
Finally...last night...I GOT MY FLOWER!!!
My sweet sweet daddy snuck in the yard while we were gone to pick up Robbie and put a HUGE Metal Daisy at the corner!
***Please totally ignore the algae that has grown on the side of my house recently.  We are gonna get out there and scrub it with steel wool this weekend...maybe...HAHA!***
He cut the petals out with a torch, painted it, and then welded it onto a pole.  It SOOO rocks!

I absolutely adore it!!
While I was on the phone with mama, and daddy was listening because she had me on speaker phone, Robbie grabbed the phone and said this:
"NANA!  My Papa made my mama this pretty flower and put it in our yard.  You know why he did it?  Just because he loves her!" couldn't have been more right!  Thanks Daddy for my AWESOME FLOWER and for thinking of me yesterday when you made it and for loving me enough to spend your time making it!
