Simple Saturday: B

today's Simple Saturday is brought to you by the letter B

a few simple things that make me happy:
good BEER, a good BOOK, and my comfy BED!
 a note about the book pictured
i recently started following  
and then saw her book out...
(i read it around valentine's since it is "a love story")
i enjoyed it.

random note about me and books:
i prefer to take the paper cover off of hardback books.
the cover is cute...
but the book itself is beautiful!

happy weekend!

random-extra friday post

i think i want to change the name of my blog.
i dont like it.
but i cant think of anything else...
maybe "Daily(ish) Dose of the Dunfords"
eh, i dont know.
...also i dont know if i even can change it now!?!?

Friday Favorites: Flops

this is NOT a new favorite.
i have loved flops for as long as i can remember.

(in fact i have had these particular flops
since my freshman year of college...
the left thong has been sewn back together
bc a friend's cat chewed it one night...
so they are pretty rough looking,
but have been formed to my foot
which makes them super comfy)

i am so excited that we have had some days
that are warm enough to wear flops...

in other news, i need a pedicure!

Thankful Thursday: Technology

i am NOT a phone person.
i am  not a big fan of talking on the phone.

i am so thankful for 
text messaging,
...without those things i would have 
very little communication 
with friends and family!

Want It Wednesday: My Quotable Kid

this week is another realistic
Want It Wednesday!

i think this book is such a great idea...
sbj is already saying some hilarious things,
so im sure it will only get better as he gets older!

find it on google!
Outrageous, poignant, or bitingly witty the things our children say always offer an unexpected glimpse into a world that is all their own. Filled with roomy pages for jotting down conversations or overheard saying, this handsome keepsake journal also features a bound-in photo window for adding a unique, personal touch. Whether parents prefer safely stowing precious insights for future generations or sharing priceless quips with family and friends, My Quotable Kid will become a lasting record of a child's most memorable quotes.

_______________ Tuesday: Love

continuing the valentine's theme of the week...
it is Titleless Tuesday 
when i share fun bits of random good stuff.
so, let's talk about some sweet love i got from the hubs and sbj.
 it began when they snuck off to the store 
to get all the ingredients for
"mommy's fav'rite"

 they got home and started dumping the love right in...

then they mixed some more love in...

 then they baked all the love together...

after that, they spread some more love on top...
(sbj even left a few finger marks)

finally, we all got to enjoy the love together.

i hope your valentine's day was
full of love!

and i have a few updates.

i added 
Cyber-less Sundays.

i keep wanting to say,
"i sure hope that big rat predicts an early spring."
but that seems rude...
i dont want to be rude...
i dont want to offend him...
i REALLY want him to listen and bring us hope for spring!

i need more of this...
