What Lola Wants……..

Lola2008_2 So exciting news for Sweetpeas! Ive been waiting patiently (not something I am good at)…. to present "What Lola Wants.. Lola Gets!"….. About a year ago Mary called me and said she wanted to know if I wanted to be in the Home Companion Christmas Issue 2008 with Sweetpeas. I was in the middle of my move at the time and stressed beyond belief… but I could not pass it up. I have been wanting to be in Home Companion ever since I picked up a issue about 5 years ago. Now was my chance, Add more stress to my Move, during Christmas….. well the answer was yes!  So happy I did it. Now We are having a amazing Event only Mary knows how to pull off. I mean you are in for a treat……. the day starts with  classes with Mary, Beth Quinn, Robert Maher and myself…. and  will end with a night that you will never forget! The entertainer at the Event is a Event in itself!  Well there you have one of the two of my big news…….. What Lilia (I mean Lola) wanted was to be In Home Companion and Lola got it….. Thanks Santa! Please e-mail me or Mary at Sweetpeas and Snapshots for more information and sign ups.

Well its Sunday… I missed my Sundays in Arizona so much. I had to make it seam like we were back.  I started the day with Hawaiians bread French Toast…. My Mom used to make it. Just use Hawaiian Sweet Bread instead of white bread…. ohhh so yummy ! Img_4582 I also made bacon…… sorry my veggie friends… I will always like meat. I have this old fashioned bacon press that works so good. I hate microwave bacon…Img_4584_2 Img_4574

Next I did some little things..Like putting labels on all of D’s sweaters and Jackets.

I cant believe how many jackets and sweaters are left in our class without names on them….. Please label your child’s things. OK, enough Teacher scolding……

I had the day to do little things that needed to get done….. you know the kind you dread during the week? I found these cute strawberry iron labels at my favorite Japanese store.

Next I convinced my Husband to hang up my chandelier……from Mary! Thanks Mary. Poor guy, it took all day. So worth it though…… here is a photo……Img_4576

I then went shopping for those fun Grocery’s and things that we are out of…..while the little Family stays home and watches football…. the sound of the game feels like being back in AZ…….

Came home to my little D looking too cute had to take some photos of her….. she still looks so little in her piggies…..Img_4588  the two sweet ones are my favorite and the other silly one is the one she wishes  they were all like! Well hope everyone has a great week!  hugsImg_4592
