**DAILY THUNDER STORMS**

HERE'S A POST JUST TO PROVE I CAN GET MOOSHIE !!




A CHILD'S VIEW OF THUNDER STORMS.....................


A little girl walked to and from school daily. Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to the elementary school. As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with lightning. The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school. And she feared the electrical storm might harm her child. Full of concern, the mother quickly got into her car and drove along the route to her child's school. As she did, she saw her little girl walking along. At each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up, and smile. Another and another flash of lighting followed quickly and with each, the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile. When the mother's car drew up beside the child, she lowered the window and called to her 'What are you doing?' The child answered, "I'm trying to look pretty because God keeps taking my picture."

May God bless you today and everyday as you face the storms that come your way.


And I'd like to thank Maria from "Unpretentious Style" for being so sweet and giving me this award....


...let me tell you a little something about Maria....she lives here........



I know...every fantasy you ever had was in a room like this right!!!
But it gets better....she looks like this...........




Totally UNFAIR....she has amazing decorating skills....she lives in a fantasy house, she is GORGEOUS....but wait...you haven't heard the best part. She's actually NICE....really...not just pretend nice...but really down to earth...sit and chat with a cuppa....NICE. Doesn't it just make you want to scream? Thanks Maria....I appreciate the award......even though I seethe with Envy everytime I look at your gorgeous home! Head over to her blog and take a look for yourself...that is if you dare!


And check out these two great awards from FireflyShe has a great blog with cool ideas for kids stuff and great recipes....yummo cheesecake! I just discovered her blog and I'm sure you're gonna love it!


Thanks so much for thinking of me!

I say you and I go to Maria's house and have a slumber party. I will bring the cheetos and Big Red and you bring all the make up. Then when she goes to sleep, we can give her a make-over and do her make up like MiMi's and we can wipe our hands and spill our drinks on her perfect white couches. Then we'll take pictures and say this is the real her. But she will probably be still just as gorgeous and her house will still look better than ours and we will be the ones who fall asleep at 11pm because we are old. Congrats on the awards and Maria, you're gorgeous. Just lie and tell us you have cellulite or a wooden leg or something.

I found your blog on Lilly's life. Lilly made a comment today on my blog, I visited her blog, I saw you there, I came over and was so surprised to see a fellow mormon! Too Cool!

I too am a Utah raised girl, my husband is a BYU fan although he attended the 'U'. AND even though we live in Southern CA he will not give up on his UTAH JAZZ! We both sat here and laughed at your picture of the BOYS!

It is a small world!

Lisa Loo said...

I didn't know that you did not do mooshies. That was a good one & a cute pic. As for the Maria thing--I have to get over being green first.

Jill said...

That was a sweet story. And it's just not fair that Maria has it all, she should share some of her looks with the likes of me. Youth, size,looks,home......Yeah, i could live with some of that. :)

santamaker said...

Hi Nikki. I was visiting my neighbor today and told her about the nobrainer dinner idea thing and that the requirement was that there was no measuring and it had to take less than 10 min. to prepare... she looked at me with a quizzical look in her face and said, "you mean like a peanut butter sandwich?"...LOL
Hey, at least you keep cereal handy!

Natalie said...

Hi!

Congrats on the well deserved award!

I know what you mean. I *loved* her place on RMS, and considered myself a fan of her work. And on top of that she's gorgeou. My house wants to look like hers, and I wouldn't mind looking like her one bit, lol!!!

Off to read the next post as I see it's about my home state. I'm going to guess you know the proper prununciation of Worcester then?

haha!

love your blog,

Nat :)
