I Wish to Live in a Pottery Barn! (my thoughts in a poem)

I wish to live in a Pottery Barn


And these are the things I would do

Kick off my shoes on the bound seagrass floor,

And put in a cd or two!

I’ll run through through displays with soft cushy rugs,

And land on a cushion or pillow,

Looking at sparkly Christmas d├ęcor,

And treasures made out of willow.

I’ll grab my festive red cambria mug,

And whip up a hot cup of joe

Turn on some Luke Bryan and sing like a star,

As I snuggle in my faux fur throw

Clutching the linens, blankets and wools,

Soaking up the fresh smell of pine

There is no doubt, with 5 in my house

Dreams of a clean house are just mine!

No cat or dog hair to wipe off my sleeve

The dishes and trinkets a’gleam

But remembering this is only my wish,

I don’t want to wake from this dream

Candles are burning, stockings are hung

Ornaments hang in the tree,

I want to return here every day

All I need is the key

I wish to live in a Pottery Barn

I’ve waited all year to be here

Please, tell me my ultimate wish will come true
On my favorite time of the year!
[Disclaimer: I'm no poet, several structural parts to my writing I'm sure are all destroyed. I was only having fun. I don't work for Pottery Barn or get anything from them for advertisement, they do a pretty good job on their own! Yes, I'd still love to live in one, or maybe my home decorated nice. In any event, don't judge too harshly please! :) Photo is courtesy of Pottery Barn online]

A little football fun!

A proud year for my husband and I as we watched our son play football. His freshman year was his first try at this, and found it to be so much fun. We always told him he had to be older. Baseball was his first love, and we didn't want bones crushed and growth plates destroyed. This year as a sophomore, shooting up to 6'3", he fell in love with being a wide receiver. I tried to get some of the plays, but wanted to share a couple..

One fun night, Dan Hampton from the 85 Chicago Bears showed up! He came to watch a friend, and was standing along the fence. He actually saw our son catch a touchdown. My husband was talking to him a little bit, and I was shocked he wasn't going crazy because his son just caught the ball and was running for a touchdown. So I yell at him from the stands, "What, now you can't yell?" He was no doubt playing it cool for the man. :)  That will forever be a great memory for him from this year!

Bottom of the screen, # 9 in purple.. shook off a few guys. SO fun!!

and another, bottom of screen in purple... nice yardage! We were screaming!

 and who's to say he can't tackle? LOL loved this.. he stalked his prey, then went for it!
