Yes, I know, I’m a day late with Manic Monday. And I apologize. We were in the mountains for a few days this weekend, and I made a promise to myself to disconnect and relax with my family. And for that reason, I had a lot to do to catch up! So here with go, with catch up. Not mustard, ketchup. HA! Just kidding. I can practically FEEL Tom rolling his eyes while reading this.

Speaking of bad puns, this really cracked me up last week. I found it posted on Facebook:

Please join me in remembering yet ANOTHER great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes to the belly. He was 71. Doughboy was survived by his wife Play Dough, three children, John Dough, Jane Dough, and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

Come on, now tell me THAT didn’t at least bring a smile to your face, if not a full-on laugh?

Why is it that you don’t have to pee until you’re all tucked into bed, comfy and cozy? Bad timing, bladder!

We went to Winter Park, Fraser, Hot Sulphur Springs, and Granby this weekend. Whew that was a list. They’re little mountain towns close together, Winter Park is the ski town that most people might recognize. We went to an antique store in Granby called Mountain McGyver. How fun is that?! And a German Shepherd named Wyatt greeted us at the store. I am SUCH a sucker for dogs, I could have played with him all day. But I pretended to be an adult and looked at antiques instead. And darnit, I found something I actually liked! They had an old Victrola that was in awesome condition, but Tom, my voice of reason, reminded me that we’re saving for a wedding. *sigh* He’s right. So we didn’t get it.

Coming up this week: March Goals revisited, and April Goals! Also, a recipe for toffee tiramisu. And the Melting Pot. ‘Nuff said, right?

I recently made an Iowa Hawkeyes jar for a friend for Christmas. Yes, I realize it’s April, but she just opened it because we haven’t seen her. It pained me to print and cut out Iowa paraphernalia. But that’s the kind of friend I am, printing out stuff for a team that isn’t my own. ;) Hey at least the colors are black and gold! So that is what I will leave you with today, a photo of the finished jar. Kaden helped me, he was so excited to see the logo cut out with my Silhouette. And glitter – even if it’s black – is always a good thing. See I had to say it that way because it was Martha Stewart glitter. ;)

Happy Tuesday everyone, have fun!
