My Mother is Coming to Town - I Have to Clean, Not Blog!

But quickly, 2 things.

1. I bought flowers to make the apartment look sunny for my mom. Aren't they gorgeous? And I got that pitcher for the wedding, but I've only used it as a vase.


2. Blackbird wants to see our calendars. I have 2 calendars at work, and I use both of them for decoration, not for, you know, keeping track of thing. The first is pictures of one of the great things about my hometown, the Colorado National Monument. March's picture is of Independence Monument.


My other calendar is a page a day of shoes that my brother gave me. Today's shoes are little Indian sandals with a little button like eye. And I want them.


And now... back to the cleaning!

Love the shoe calendar (and the sandals) - good brother. I should get my mom some flowers- very thoughtful of you.

I have three on my desk: one that the gov't issued me (which I actually use for keeping track of stuff), a Page-a-Day of managerial tips from Who Moved My Cheese?, and one from Hawai'i with different scenic pictures, reminding me that there's more than what's inside the four walls of my office.

Love the use of the pitcher :-)

Say "hi" to your mom for me. I hope you have a great time with her. ^_^

Love the CO Monument calendar. Funny fact: my grandma climbed that spire. It still blows my mind.

The shoe calendar is fabulous as is the pitcher turned into a vase!
Have fun with your Mom!

Tell "momma pink shoe" that I said Hi!

The flowers are beautiful, and the shoe calendar is interesting to say the least!

A shoe calendar is absolutely perfect for you! Those flowers look lovely in that vase, I'd use it as a vase too. I hope you have a good time with your mom. Tuck her in early so you can (shhhh) sneak off to blog. ;)

tell your Mom she's super-dope-a-licious for coming up with your name!

Have a stellar weekend!

I am just hoping that you will have an in depth critique of what who wore at the Oscars. I'm really looking forward to it!
