Scotland Obsessions and Belly Button Piercing

Do you see what my husband has to put up with?
My den is where I write, so I have been slowly adding all things castles, Scotland, and now my cute little Arthur. He is my 3 feet tall knight in shining armor! If you are like many others who have seen him, you just rolled your eyes....
I decided to also show you some of my other acquisitions. I actually found a black velvet oil painting of a castle (Elvis or the poker dogs just wouldn't go with my decor).
I have a gorgeous roll top desk that I had every intention of using to write, HOWEVER, you can see my monitor sits on my tiny computer desk next to my book shelf.


Moving onto to other topics, this weekend has been another crazy one. My oldest, Tiffany, turned 14 and we had a sleep over.
Dear God....I have turned into my mother! Their music gives me a splitting headache after only a few hours. In spite of their choice in music, I think it was a success. We decorated tote bags (thanks Mrs. 4444!), they munched on veggie, meat & cheese trays, then we had chocolate and caramel fondue (thanks again Mrs. 4444). The last thing that we did that night was roast Starburst using tea lights (once again, thanks Mrs. 4444).


The following day, I loaded up Tiffany, my niece Alisa, and their friend Sam, picked up Sam's mom, and all the girls had their belly buttons pierced. That was what my daughter wanted for her birthday. My husband was none too happy that I agreed! I think it's cute though.

I suppose if I had a tummy like that, I'd consider getting mine pierced, too!

Glad the girls had fun. What did they think of the Starburst roasting?

Gee, doesn't anyone make old fashioned s'mores anymore? I suppose it's cool and everything to be pierced ... I just can't imagine it for me. How old does this make me sound? oh no ...

Mrs. 4444-The girls all thought Starburst tasted better melted, and were amused at the way they bubbled! It was so neat the way we did it, it was late (1:30 am) and I lined up all the candles on the bar, with the lights out. Very cool!

Skeeter-OLD! You sound old! Not really...my husband had a cow! I will say that I draw the line at that piercing, NO MORE! I agree w/ Mrs. 4444, if my stomach looked like that, I would have had mine done too! Ah, to be young again...

Dearie,

Your husband is a very good man! We think alike on this. Now don't be bashful, you can tell us the truth, if your stomach looked like that you'd be a pinup model or a movie star. The real question is ... would you give us an autograph?

Skeeter,

It looked like that about 16 years ago...I actually have a poster to prove it!!!

KID YOU NOT!

Having babies pretty much put an end to my lingerie modeling (have the pictures of that too)...hehehehe.

Oh, if I could get away with having an "Arthur" in my home, I would totally have one! And Gerard Butler... *swoon* Glad your daughter had a great bday! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog!
