M&Ms For You and You and You and You . . .

As most of you know or have probably guessed,
I have a love/love relationship with chocolate.
I just love chocolate in nearly way, shape and form!
Dark chocolate is not my fave, but if there is nothing else available, it will do
in a pinch.  
If I don't have anything chocolate at home, I resort to semi-sweet
chocolate chips -- that's not bad, right??? 
Don't you all have a little chocolate in the morning with your coffee or tea to 
start the day right?  
Yes??  Me too!

M&Ms have always been a favorite of mine.  But seriously, doesn't everyone love
M&Ms in some flavor or another or all the flavors??
For her birthday last December, I had some special M&Ms
made up for Mads!
You pick the colors, the images and the sentiments!

They were almost too cute to eat!



Of course, I meant to share this ages ago! 
 A sweet reminder from an email from the M&M people nudged my memory bank!
Guess what -- they are having a special
on special M&Ms for 25% off.
Soooooo, if you're looking for a unique way to express your love to your Valentine,
may I suggest M&Ms!

Love Characters -- Even Cows!

As you may recall from prior Disney posts, we love Characters
and character photos.
And we love Chick-fil-A . . . a lot!
If they had a frequent customer list, we'd be at the top!

Recently, the Chick-Fil-A cow was out and about at
the store.
He was rather dressed up the first time we saw him!
I think Mr. Tennis has a similar shirt and bow tie!




We heard our local Chick-fil-A had an overnight for patron's stuffed 
animals.  They posted updates throughout the evening.
We wanted to attend with the littles, but they were too tired -- maybe next time!
Maddie and I thought it was such a hoot and we
saw this photo on FaceBook of the cow reading (we presume)
to the stuffed animals



We saw the cow again recently in his Hawaiian shirt -
he is reportedly taking a vacation to get away from the
cold weather!
Great Plan Cow!


Even though we aren't at Disney seeing some WDW
characters, we love seeing the Chick-fil-A cow!


P.S.  Big Congrats to the Philadelphia Eagles on their SuperBowl win!!
Yippee!!

What Bill Said vs. What Phil Said!

Happy Groundhog Day!

I usually don't celebrate this important day mainly because
the usual prediction is 6 more weeks of winter, and
who in their right mind would celebrate that news???

Photo borrowed from world wide web
However, great news from Nebraska's own groundhog
known as Unadilla Bill!
Unadilla is a little town not far from Lincoln.
He did not see his shadow, so yay -- early spring predicted!
Pull out the flip flops friends -- you'll be wearing 'em before you know it!
Of course, it was only 8 degrees this morning - but no matter- 
Bill said early spring!!!

The news is that Punxsutwaney Phil saw his shadow today, 
so sorry Pennsylvania friends - you're stuck
with 6 more weeks of winter!
Plan a warm-weather getaway now!


Have a great weekend and
let's all root for the Philadelphia Eagles!! 
Fly Eagles Fly!

Fabrics: Who Wants to Sew Some Curtains?

Since Maddy and I have been sewing together,
one of our favorite things to do on the weekend is . . . 
look at fabrics!

I know, I know, it sounds crazy, doesn't it!
But, we really do enjoy spending time at the fabric store and 
checking out the new spring fabrics, the clearance materials 
and everything in between!
FYI - Walmart sometimes has great fabrics!


One of my sewing goals for the year is to make
curtains/drapes for the living room and maybe dining room too!
This doggie fabric above is adorable -- for bandanas maybe -
but definitely not the living room!

The drapes I have are fine, but really plain and dull and sooooo dreadfully
boring -- snoozefest!
I feel like I need something with a bit more oomph!


I really like this blue fabric above -- am kind of drawn to blue.
For a while, I had blue carpet in the dining room, but we discovered original hardwood floors were
under it, so we tore out the carpet.  Come to think of it,
we currently have a large blue rug under the dining room table
that I just realized looks a lot like that fabric!


Another blue option!  I like it, but am afraid I could go blind 
or crazy or both sewing that up!  That's busy!


Am afraid Maddy would call the flowery one above "old lady" fabric!


Hmmm -- may have to re-think blue as I really like this red, but
would need to see it in person to make sure it doesn't look orangey in real life!

We'll see if or when I get to this project.
I did read a tutorial from Miss Mustard Seed (do you read her?)
and it doesn't look too terribly difficult.
Any favorites?

Daydreaming

Thank you all for your kind get-well wishes!
We now have the residual colds/coughs
from Influenza A!
Soon, I'm sure we will be feeling better!

In the meantime,
on cold winter January days -
it helps to get through this never-ending month by remembering
some fun times in Florida last year!


Daydreaming of warm, sunny days
and fun times at the
happiest place on earth!


We need a little Disney!

The Bug!

Oh no -- Mr. Tennis and I both came down with the bug . . .
Influenza A!
Yes, we had flu shots -- I even had a "super-shot" or so they said!

 
But, oh my word -- this bug makes you feel like you've
been hit or run over by a train!
We both have had fevers, body aches, tiredness, chills, 
nausea -- the whole enchilada!
Mr. T caught it first and with his comprised 
immune system due to Crohn's and biologics,
he got right to the doctor (thanks to a little nudge by moi) and on Tamiflu.
Two days later - the bug got me too!
Also went to the doc asap and on Tamiflu.
I felt a little better after a day or two,
but still exhausted.

Now, we're in the cough and really tired stage,
so Mr. T got some surgical masks for us to
wear!  It's a fun look, believe me.
Haven't worn surgical masks since we returned from
China in 2003 during the SARS epidemic!
Luckily Miss M has not caught the bug and
I sure hope she doesn't!

We're having a snow day today due
to blizzardy conditions!
I think a nap is in order very soon!
Wash your hands and try to stay healthy friends!
