lucky kind of day

I should be cleaning my toilets, vacuuming, wiping down my kitchen counters.....

But could you resist this face?

On our way to drop A off at school today we hit the jackpot. I had planned on buying J a doll house for her upcoming birthday. But today, emerging from the morning mist on my neighbors driveway, sat this. My rational side told me to keep driving. Fortunately for J, my rational side lost and after dropping A at school...I was carrying this mansion down my basement stairs.


So I should be cleaning for my Labor Day company (that will be here tomorrow....yikes!) Instead, I am setting up house and helping Barbie and her clan get ready for a beach vacation. They are having a hard time deciding if they should drive their car or ride the horses...decisions, decisions!

It's not everyday that you can make your daughter's dreams come true. As J would say..."I guess today is just a lucky kind of day!"
