Birthday MONEY!!!

So as you may remember my Birthday was back in February, but I have just now decided what to do with my BIRTHDAY MONEY!
I mentioned this to THE HUBS last week and his response "um, you've already spent that money like 3 times over"
HAVE NOT!!!!!- I screamed
Which he responded to- the GPS for your car, Full Moon Sleigh Ride and Dinner at the Devils Thumb Ranch in Colorado, wait the WHOLE ski trip for that matter.
The only appropriate response to his asinine allegations was SHUT UP!!!

So, here is my BIG plan with my Birthday money.
I was at an Art Festival in Mount Dora a few months back and saw a fabulous painting, I just loved it, this is it:
I don't know if you can tell, but the woman's skirt is made from real cloth. I love all of the artist's works, something about them caught my eye. All the women in the paintings were beautiful, womanly, delicate, strong and feminine, the perfect balance. Besides almost all of them had animals in them, and of those most were dogs...and well, you all know how I feel about my Little Lulu- the most gorgeous baby (you might call her a dog) on the face of the Earth.

Here is one of her doggie painting-OMG- I just ADORE them!

Well La Pequena Lulu's Birthday is coming up: May 5th, yes she is such a Latina lovely, so to commemorate our first year together, we will be commissioning a portrait by the amazing: Gena Semenov. Click on her name to see all her works, she sells prints on-line and they are truly fabulous!

This is the BEST idea I have EVER had!


  1. Yeah, crazy. And there's nothing "little" about that crazy-ass dog.

  2. Oh yeah, this is a completely brillant idea.

  3. I love the paintings and it is a great idea!! I love the girl and the crow one...but....I can't help thinking of that rhyme that goes, "One for sorrow, two for joy, three for a girl and four four a boy"....there's more....I just don't know what they are!!! but the one for sorrow thing worries me with that painting!! Do I need therapy???? Get the dog one:)

  4. LOVE the crow! (I own Black Crow Boutique!) Her work is fabulous! Glad that Mother's Day is around the corner! I agree with you...a brilliant idea!

  5. ah ha ha ha ha--this post just made me laugh and laugh! and yes, brilliant idea--can't wait to see the result!!


I love you Darling, really! Thank you!
