Boy did I hit the Mother Load....

Wow, this morning started off on a rocky start.....I guess this is what you don't want a typical Monday to be. My dear loving hubby gets in the shower at about 5:30 and takes the shortest shower known to him (he likes them really warm and really long). He lasted in there probably less than 5 minutes then crawls back into bed with his cold body to tell me that he used all the hot water (typical). Instead of getting mad (like I usually do) I tell him that's fine. He proceeds to put and icicle of a hand on my shoulder and says he thinks the hot water heater is broken and he suffered through a fast, cold shower. Great, just what I want to spend money on....a new water heater.

I get up to make lunches for the boys and hear a whining noise in the back room. I go investigate and find that the problem is not my water heater, it is my washing machine. It was on all night......filling with water and pouring out of the bottom. In essence we had a flood in the laundry room ALL. NIGHT. LONG. Sadly I am faced with cleaning up a flood, making sandwiches, breakfast, cocoas, harassing the boys to get dressed and brush their teeth. This is the way I always want to start the week. The only thing missing was the incessant fighting that usually goes with the morning madness. I guess I can thank God for the little things.

Now on to the good stuff!
See this pretty pink box? It was from Pooba.


I bet you want to know what is inside. Here is a sneak peak.

Can yo see them now?


Now they're ready to ea!


Jealous? You should be!

Pooba sent me those out of pity because she loves me so much. We made a deal that was all about an apron over at The Apron Goddesses. Both of us has been entering to win a give away week after week and our number was always a bit elusive so we decided to gift each other if we didn't win. Well Pooba won! So she sent me a pity package of those tasty treats. Betcha want one. Too bad, they only lasted a day. My boys had plans for them. I did however sneak 2 before the wolves attacked. Thanks Pooba!!!!

What a morning! I would have made my husband heat up some water on the stove for me...not really but I'd like to think he would...

...You are so welcome for the cookies. You know I baked those myself don't you? I'm glad you were able to sneak 2 before the wolves had their way with them!
