Who ate my lip balm?

Yesterday was my Mom's heavenly birthday. She would have been 76; like the bicentennial. Goodness, I still remember what a big year 1976 was. All the hoopla. All the red, white & blue.
Anyhoo, I'm still keeping up the tradition of celebrating her in the way she would like.
Two of my besties and I have a nice Mexican lunch with a margarita in Bev's honor.
I love that they also love this tradition. You can't beat great friends.
Well, you could. But then they wouldn't really like you so much, now would they?

But something cute happened this week.
On Easter Lolo's dog, Mattis found my 'Suz's sitting on the couch necessities basket' under the coffee table.

Does everyone have this? It's all the important things I might need once I sit down for the night and don't want to get up again:
dental floss, foot and hand cream, lip balm & eye drops.  (I'm dry I tell ya!)

Well, Mattis found my lip balm and proceeded to open it and eat the balm.
That's NOT the cute part.
Luckily, it was on the low side, but still, Mattis should have moisturized lips for a few days.
The cute part is two days later I get a package from Amazon that I didn't order.

Lolo replaced the lip balm X6.
I'll check with Mattis and see which flavor he prefers and save it for him.
My girls are the best.
Also on Easter, Linds brought me flowers and candy for us both.
Mama did well.
Have I mentioned how much I really love those girls? Like.A.LOT.

Anyhoo. That's my cute story for this week.

Have a great weekend!


  1. It's definitely a cute story!

  2. Yep, definitely a very cute story! I have my stash of weird stuff in a drawer on an endtable. I also have clippers and eyeglass wipes. It's so funny the things we must have nearby. Happy lip balming. :)

  3. Just goes to show that you raised her right. She takes responsibility for her dog's actions. That will serve her well when she becomes the mother of a child.

  4. What a sweet girl you have raised!! And Dan and I were just telling the kids all about the hoopla of 1976. I remember eagle plaques everywhere. We were saying how we would be dead for the tercentennial but they would hopefully be alive!
