Will the twins' real father please stand up?

My husband shaves his head and is covered in tattoos.

The mail carrier is bald and is also covered in tattoos.

Do you see where this is going?

For some reason, our local mail carrier (usually I say mail man, but am trying to be politically correct and stuff), does not wear the typical mail carrier uniform.   Rather, he carries his shirt on his bag, and walks around the neighborhood in a sleeveless shirt. 

On Saturday, we had the front door open.  The mail carrier walks up to the house to deposit the mail.  The twins see the man walk up,  RUN to the door and YELL as loudly as possible - "DADDY! DADDA! DADDY!"

Mortified, I just walk into another room. 

I tried explaining to them that it was not their daddy, as they stand at the door, upset that "Daddy" walked away.  Connor said, "But it sure looked like him."

*****************
Upon telling this story at our Memorial Day picnic, my mother-in-law remarked to me (not once, but at least twice), "Well, he really could be their father, since they both look like you."

Yes,  I guess he could. ;)

That's so funny. My husband worked away from home when the kids were little. In the doctor's office my toddler once went around the room, holding her arms up to the men and saying "Daddy?" I had to explain, of course.

OMG! I love it!!!!
Ah ha ha ha ha! Thats funny!

At some point my oldest started pointing out random men that looked like Daddy (beard and ponytail being the look for us) and would insist that they were also Daddies. So far my twins are not doing it yet, but I bet its on the horizon...

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 …
