Love is in the Air

Did I tell you the first thing Mr. Daddy bought with some of our windfall? Did I? Take a gander:

I'm getting new dishes! After ten, almost eleven, years of eating off the same dishes, I'm getting this gorgeous scarlet Fiestaware set. I'm so giddy it's almost like getting married all over again.

On another love related note, Bubba has a Sweetheart Dance at school tomorrow. This morning as we were getting ready, I heard Mr. Daddy and Bubba talking.

"Do you have a girlfriend these days, Bubba?"

"NO!" he replied gruffly, with just a tinge of embarrassment in his voice.

"Did a girl break your heart?"


"Has a girl been mean to you? 'Cause they'll do that sometimes, you know."

At this point I could no longer hold my peace. "Yeah, they'll do that to you if you're a...a..." I fumbled for something appropriate to say in front of a 5-year-old.

"If you're a silly boy" Bubba piped up.

Well, that wasn't quite what I was thinking, but it'll do.

I'm off to make pigs in a blanket for tomorrow's preschool soiree. 'Cause nothing says love like miniature hotdogs wrapped in a croissant.

new housewares are so exciting aren't they? I love the red--perfect for valentines too!

Pigs in a blanket are like my most favorite snack food!

And very nice dishes!

Ooooh! Love, love, love the dishes! I'm jealous.

Tell Bubba he'll have girls crawling all over him in no time. Then he'll wonder how to get rid of them. ;)

Oooohhh! I have dish lust! Very pretty.

Karen said...

EEEK!!! New dishes, and they're red! I am a dish whore. And those are hawt.

How cute, a first dance, complete with hot dogs. Ah, young love.

Karen said...

Great, those dishes got me all hot and bothered and I forgot to tell you that I have some bloggy bling for you. Good grief.

Colleen said...

nice fiestaware!!! love the saucy color!

and you're right...nothing says love like nitrates wrapped in butter!

Lulu said...

It's a party every night with Fiestaware, am I right? All you need now is the mariachi band. Those are awesome!

GR always says that I'm mean to him. Next time I'm telling him it's because he's a silly boy. That sounds much nicer that what I normally say.

P.S. What's the deal with the "Choose an Identity" thing with Blogger? I swear it changes every week! But I love you anyway.

Lauren said...

OH!OH! Im so jealous of your dishes!! They're so PURDY!!!

Im so sick of my plain white boring dishes...perhaps Mr. Daddy and Hubby should get together and have a chat???

Laurel said...

Beautiful dishes! Did you say sweetheart's dance? How old is that kid anyway? I'm having visions of my Jr. High dances flash through my brain. AAAaaaaa! Make it stop!

I'm assuming his will be more harmless.

Your dishes would look lovely in my kitchen.

Your dishes are sexier than my dishes. I'm jealous.
