Angela's Angel Pin

I entered a contest to have this Angel pin named after my niece Angela. And I won!
Winner: Cherrie Shaw - Her entry is as follows:
I would be honored to have this angel named after my niece Angela Martinelli Warner. Angela passed away on July 8th 2008 from complications of a seizure, at the age of 33. She had suffered with seizures for 9 long years. Angela had a heart of gold just like this angel. She touched so many lives with her bubbly personality. The church was packed and people were standing in the isles at her funeral. Just a few weeks before she died she told her mom she had a dream that Jesus is coming soon. Well he did, he came for her. She is our angel now. I want to give this angel to my sister Cindey (Angela’s mom). Cindey’s birthday is June 19, Angela’s was June 18th and Cindey’s youngest daughters is June 17th. This is going to be really hard on my sister. June has always been about the girls birthdays. Cindey never thought of herself as a strong woman. She has survived breast cancer and now the loss of Angela. I think she is a very strong woman!

"True Colors" by Kristin Hannah

I love Kristin Hannah's books. Friday night I stayed up late to finish reading "True Colors" I loved this book. Last year I read 'Firefly Lane" by her and it was my favorite book of the year. "True Colors" was even better! I am looking forward to her next book!

Shoes I wish I could wear!

Shoes I wish I could wear. These sexy red heels! I also wish I had her legs too! lol
Maybe these flirty pink heels!

Or these chunky hot pink ones.

Now these look like they would be good dancing shoes. How about the swing!

These cuties look retro!

Or go on the wild side with animal prints!

Or the barely there jewels!

Disco night with the chunky yellow heels!

Just love the polka dots!

Pretty in pink!

The black tie event, Here I come!

But no I am stuck in my comfort shoes!

Grand Kids

I love taking pictures with my grand kids. Here is Nicholas and me. He's kind of making a face. Maybe he didn't fell like having his picture taken. Or maybe he needed to take a poop!

Allyssa and me! She loves having her picture taken. She had lost her front teeth here but they are coming in now. She is a beautiful girl inside and out!

Getting Joshua to set with me to have his picture taken is not easy. He thinks he is too old and cool. The preteen years have began. He is a very handsome young man. He will be 12 in Dec. where has all the time gone. We took this picture at church on Easter.
I love black and white and sepia tone pictures. I think they look classy and timeless.

RMS Titanic

On April 14, 1912 the RMS Titanic was on it's maiden voyage to New York.

It had over 3500 people on broad.

It only had lifeboat capacity for 1,178 people.

It had beautiful wood panelling and expensive furniture. She offered an on-board swimming pool, a gymnasium, libraries in both the first and second-class floors.
About 11:40 pm the Titanic strikes an iceberg. About two hours and forty minutes after striking the iceberg, the "unsinkable" RMS Titanic slips into the sea to the ocean floor. 1517 lives were lost.
The wreckage was discovered in 1985.
Our local science center had the artifact exhibition on display.
When entering you are given a copy of a boarding pass
Mine was for passenger Mrs. Wilhelm Strom (Edna Matilda Person) she was accompanied by her daughter Selma age 2 and her brother Ernst Ulrik Person. They were 3rd class passengers. They did not survive.
I read many books on the Titanic, my heart goes out to the passenger's. Even the ones that were lucky enough to survive that night was forever changed by their experience.

"Deep Dish" by Mary Kay Andrews

I love ready Mary Kay Andrews books! "Deep Dish" is a entertaining story about two battling southern chefs. It's a great love story! Her books always make me wish I was born in the south. This one made me hungry for Pecan pie.
It is not her best work but it is worth reading!

Hockey Time

We went to the Coyote's game on April 2, it will be our last game this season. Here is Allyssa, she just took a bite of Dippin' Dots Ice Cream.
Allyssa and me! She is such a beautiful girl.

It was an exciting game the Coyotes won!

They only have a couple games left this season. They didn't make the playoffs. Hopefully next year they have a winning team.

I will miss going to the games. Who would have ever thought I would become a hockey fan. This Arizona girl can't even ice skate!

It's my Birthday

Today is my birthday. I know April Fools! If I had a dollar for every time someone said I must be a fool since I was born on Fools Day. At least being born on April Fools, almost everyone remembers my birthday!

In a way I fooled my parents on April Fools, I was their 3rd daughter. They were hoping to get a boy. April Fool's I am another girl.! They never got that boy. I am the baby. Here is a picture of me taken when I was about 18 months old.

This picture I was about 3 years old. Thank goodness I still don't have that under bite anymore!
Happy 49th Birthday to me! I think I am going to start lying about my age. I could get away with it, April Fools.
Hope everyone has a great April Fools Day!
