The other day, Connor had a yo-yo (really just a piece of ribbon, but he learned about yo-yos at nana's). And he was playing with it and told me he was a cowboy. Then he said "eeeeee ha".

Last night he took his Elmo coat rack and brought it into the nursery. Then he held onto two of the handles and told me to say cheese. And then he took my picture as though Elmo was a camera on a tripod.

Also last night he asked me if we were going to Gigi's for a party. And if Ann, Lexi and Tommy were going to be there. (We were just at Gigi's for our Easter party.)

I went into the bathroom and locked the door. He came knocking and told me it was locked. Then I opened the door and he yelled, "Mommy's home!" (I had been home for about 2 hours at that point.)

He got ahold of one of my bracelets, put it on top of his head, and said, "I too big Mommy!"

When I tell him that he is being a good big brother, he says to me, "I no big brother, I Connor!"

Some mornings when I ask him what he wants for breaksfast, he tells me that he wants cheez-its. After I tell him he can't have that for breakfast, he says, "I know." And laughs.

Last night I was putting him to bed and had finished reading the story he picked out. He asked me to sing "twinkle", then interrupted me to tell me, "No, I do now." Then he sang it to me.

Book Review...and a Giveaway!!!

I was lucky enough to win an ARC of When the Rogue Returns from Sabrina Jeffries herself! I couldn't wait to read it.  After reading the first book in The Duke's Men series, What the Duke Desires, I was excited to see that this next book was about Victor Cale.

In When the Rogue Returns, Victor Cale is headed to Scotland to investigate a woman, Sofie Franke.  He has his suspicions that this woman is actually Isabella, his wife who disappeared on him ten years before.  He has spent the last decade searching to bring her to justice after she stole the royal jewels and left him to behind to deal with the authorities.  Isabella Cale, now known as Sofie Franke, has built a new life for herself and her ten-year old daughter after her husband ran off with the royal jewels.

Are you intrigued yet?

Victor and Isa's first meeting was great! Both blame the other for the missing jewels, and both are greatly suspicious of the other's motives.  Despite their renewed feelings of pas…

The Tree of Life

My name is Sarah, and it's been 11 months since my last post. I've thought about it, but life is constantly getting in the way. I even made a goal this year to write more, but it really hasn't happened yet.  Until today.

I went on Facebook this morning to check if there were any updates about the accident I saw on the way to work. Instead, I saw an obituary for a woman I've never met. But I know who she is. She received a kidney transplant a few months before I received mine.

And according to her FB page, she had a difficult time leading up to transplant, a tough recovery, lots of additional illnesses and setbacks, and long hospital stays.

I, on the other hand, never had dialysis, was on the transplant list for an unbelievable 5 months (the wait list is normally 5 YEARS), had a 3-day hospital stay, and other than not tolerating pain medication (so I could only take Tylenol which did nothing for the pain), I've been on my merry, healthy way for over 3 years.

I saw …

The Cindy Tote - A Review

I have been wanting a new work bag for, well, ever. In fact, I told Keith recently that I really wanted the Thirty-One Cindy tote, but couldn't justify the price at this time. He mentioned that since I had been complaining about this for well over two years, I could use part of our tax refund to get a bag for myself. I was super excited, but wanted to make sure it was going to be money well spent.

I emailed my wonderful friend, MB, who confirmed that yes, the Cindy tote was a great bag, and..... there was a great deal going on this month as well!

*Please excuse the cell phone pictures, our computer is still broken and I (meaning Keith and the mess that his desk) still cannot find the camera cord.

The front.  Isn't it pretty? 
And no, I swear I did not hug the bag  out of happiness when  I first took it out of the box.

The inside has one zippered pocket,  as well as three deep open pockets.   There is nothing I like more than a bag with lots of pockets.

Here it is filled with my …
