Happy Mother's Day!

I know it was yesterday but I didn't get a chance to post. We had a delightful day. Dean cooked  & our parents & my brother, sis-in-law & Logan came over for lunch. Lydia brought a cake that was amazeballs! Chocolate, cream cheese, DELISH!
Logan enjoyed it! I made a lemon ice box pie. This has to be the easiest thing I've ever made. 2 egg yolks, 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, 1/2 cup of lemon juice & a pie crust. It's good too!
Sorry, but there are still no pics of the kitchen. We said we were taking the weekend off & we did. We did buy the correct size screws & new bar stools. That's the extent of what we did. HA!

I think the birds are taunting me. After the discovery last week of the nest Dean tells me that he thinks there's another nest on the bakers rack. I went outside & found this.
It was hiding behind the Home Depot bag I stuck there. The birds are working fast. It's not like we don't have trees in the area either. Behind our yard is a whole bunch of trees. Plenty of room for nesting. I swear, they're taunting me.

On a sad note, last night when I was taking my contacts out I discovered not one but two grey hairs. How can this be? My hair has high lights, low lights & the leftovers from previous hi & low lights. How is it that I managed to spot them? I even thought maybe they were highlights. My mom suggested paint. Sadly, no. I had Dean get out of bed & come look. It was no mistake. Wiry, grey hair. Sigh.



  1. Oh, I have grey hair too! It's okay. Mine are on the middle layer of hair. We're just premature grey. :)

  2. Oh no, not grey hair! Poor baby! I hate to tell ya', but those little "grey suckers" don't take color very well & will continue to taunt you (worse than the birds, believe me)!

    On a happy note: Glad you had a great weekend!

  3. You are so funny, Traci. 2 grey hairs? Mine's probably all grey hairs if I don't color it....Christine

  4. Glad you had a fun day Traci!~ I was recouping from a seven boy birthday sleepover the night before. I have a few gray hairs myself...nothing to speak of though for my old age LOL!

  5. My sis and bro in law cooked for us too!

  6. I found a grey hair the other day too. I plucked it right out! haha!
