"Sea Food"

Here's the latest edition of "Funny Food" as my daughter likes to call it : )

Here's what I used to make this fun "Sea Food" lunch:
Boat - PB & J sandwich, celery sticks, raisins - didn't realize one of my windows was crooked until after lunch : )
Water - Ranch dip
Fish - goldfish crackers
Clouds - Slice of Provolone cheese cut into cloud shapes with scissors
Sun - Yellow silicone cupcake liner filled with applesauce - used left over cheese as a shim to level out sun as the plate I used had a ridge.

Miss A cleaner her plate! Another successful "Funny Food" attempt!

Until next time...

She's got all the right curves!

The other day I was sitting on my couch perusing through a catalog when I flipped to a page that made me stop in my tracks. OK, so I know you don't really make tracks when you're sitting on the couch eating a cookie, but I liked the dramatic effect that sentence added : ) Anyhoo... Gracing this page was the most beautiful figure I've seen in a long time. Curvacious and AMAZINGLY toned. I stared at it... It stared back... For what seemed like forever (actual time: 5 minutes) I sat there staring... contemplating... Was it even at all possible for me to achieve a figure as beautiful as this?!? Motivation struck! I set down my cookie (OK, so I stuffed the rest of it in my mouth as though it was the last cookie I would ever have in my whole entire life - please don't judge me:) ), I got up and changed my clothes, and then I got to work. With a little bending, some stretching, and a whole lot of perspiring this is how my figure looks now...

Isn't she lovely?!?

Here's what she looked like before...
A little too pale & gold for my taste. This was a lamp I inherited from my Nana about 2 years ago. I loved the lines but the color left much to be desired. I thought about painting it a million times but I was trigger shy PLUS I didn't want to harbor the guilt of ruining yet another one of Nana's treasured possessions - why did I paint that perfectly good mirror?!?

Here's the picture that motivated me to grab my ORB spray paint...

I LOVE the dramatic curves and the bronzish/goldish/ironish tone!

Here's one more look at my curvacious figure : )

Well worth the 10 minutes of hard work!

Happy Friday!

Until next time...
