No, no! I will take pix soon. I've been too busy this afternoon with kids and I will be gone most of tomorrow. Thursday for sure, or tonight if all the kids are gone before too late.

OMG!!!!! He is the cutest thing evah in his outfit!!!!!! So sorry I did'nt check in last night...I had to put a new dressing on Ardeo's leg, worm one of the others,and then dropped a metal thing on my foot and had to have it iced and elevated the rest of the evening!

That little watch detail and everything about the outfit, the color rocks!
It is so unique and cool! I like the way the hat looks, but he really could use a taller top hat if you can find one!

Well, off to work I go again! After I give the horse his painkiller and 10 antibiotic tablets.... Shocked

Have a great day!

Thank you! I think he looks super cute too! The glasses came today! I was out but I didn't have to sign for them. Thank goodness. Lately I have had to sign for every little thing from overseas. I'd have been upset if I had to drive to the Post Office just for those tiny little things! They look great on him. I cannot wait for the gray wig to get here. Not sure where I would find a top hat for him, but I will look around ebay and the craft shops one of these days.

Sorry to hear about your foot Crying or Very sad Hope you are doing much better today! Your babies too! I have no idea what it means to "worm" an animal No Sounds gross though pale

If you need something to make you feel better tonight, take a moment to check out the links to the opening night concert videos of DC's set in his thread. They are freaking amazing!! He is teh sex on "Hello" and he rocks the guitar and wails on "Billie Jean"!! Love him like crazy! Best artist ever to come out of AI!

Well, Mom and I had another fun day of shopping and going out to lunch! If you ever go to Applebee's you have got to try the Fiesta Lime Chicken! Out.Of.This.World!

They said storms would hit us anytime after 1:00 PM. I got home at 4:00 and the sun was still shining! We didn't get a drop of rain until 6:30! It is raining right now, but no storms yet. They are running warnings across the top of the TV now so I guess they will be here soon. Just so glad Mom and I didn't get soaked like we did last week! Laughing

TTYL!

Now all you need is the wig!!! Do you like the glasses? Yep, Milo is perfect for the mad hatter character because he has so much personality and has such an attitude about him!

I bet the wig takes at least 10 days. When did you order it?

The ankle and foot are fine today! The icing and keeping it elevated last night did the trick! Good thing because I am helping a friend saddle her horse tonight in 97 degree weather! I am going to fall into a heap of goo after that! Laughing The horse worming is not a big deal really and is more preventative. You just inject a tube of worming paste into their mouth and that is about it.

That fiesta lime chicken sounds great! Will have to try it sometime.

We have been lucky about not getting the storms they have predicted for us a few days this week...it has just continued to be hotter than hades!

Yes, the glasses are very nice! The lenses are not the quality of the ones I got from the US seller, but the frames are very nice!

OK, the worming thing doesn't sound so bad. I just hate worms!! Mad So gross!

It was pretty hot here today too, but the storms are suppose to bring cooler temps. Low to mid 70's the next few days. Sunny and 77 on the 4th so that will be great for grilling and going to see fireworks!

I ordered the wig on Tuesday morning . I know I will have to sign for that. I always have to sign for the CanCan wigs.

I got an email from JPOP and there is a wig I would like to get Shyla on sale for $13. I am so tempted for that price Twisted Evil

JPop is having another sale eh? Would you mind forwarding me the notice if the wigs are not listed on her site? I don't know why she does'nt have me on the mailing list after all the wigs I have bought from her!

It is supposed to gradually cool out a bit here by the weekend which is good... I need some weather in the 80's again for good riding weather.

So what are your big plans for the 4th?

No list. I just got an email saying there was a sale at JPOP of some wigs and some other doll items and to go to the site. I clicked on wigs I liked to see which ones were on sale. There is a pretty "Ginger" that I always liked and that is on sale for $13 and a couple of the short boy wigs were on sale too. I am not sure what else as I didn't have time today to check them all out. So just go to JPOP and click on the wigs - I think it was the Monique Gold that had some sales.

Just grilling, chilling and catching some fireworks at a nearby town.

Thanks for the wig info! As if I need any more.... Evil or Very Mad

Yeah, we will be just grillin' and chillin' ourselves. We have lots of projets to work on this weekend before our company comes in August. Mainly outside. Inside, we just have to have the bedroom carpets cleaned, but I want to wait a few weeks on that.

Next weekend is the Police and Elvis!!!!! cheers

Well, I just got Shyla the Ginger in Carrot. $13.96. I also got Milo the Bleach Blonde BJ. I thought it would be nice to have a wig that didn't cover so much of his forehead and eyes. I REALLY am now done with wigs for Milo. Also, if I get a Mo for Xmas I want that Bleach Blonde wig for him since I will probably get him nude and bald. So since I always liked that wig for a boy doll figured might as well get it when it's $13.96. Only $4.50 total shipping. Two Monique Gold wigs shipped for $32 is pretty darn good!

You are so going to love The Police! I loved them when I saw them years ago! Sting is just gorgeous and amazing! I had a mad crush on him after the concert! I honestly do not know much about Elvis's music. I guess I should check him out on You Tube!

Got to get to bed. It's going on midnight here and I have to get up at 6:00 AM to be ready for 7 kids tomorrow! I bought them special treats today in honor of The 4th! Great big decorated star shaped cookies all frosted and sprinkled with red, white and blue candies! I am an evil daycare provider am I not?! I send them home bouncing off the walls! Twisted Evil

Good night! Talk to you tomorrow!

ETA: Or if I get a nude and bald Min the blonde would be good! I am not sure which of those two boys I want more No Tough choice.

Miss Debbie! How precious!

Yes, that Mo is one fine boy... Twisted Evil It has that etheral pretty boy thing going on for sure.

Well, off to ride the former reform girl student tonight. It should be a good test of what I got for my month or so of training!

It is a little cooler so I am going to hit the dusty trail tonight and tomorrow!

It was just gorgeous here today! Low 70s and sunny! The kids had a nice day outside. When they left I went to Jewel for the meat sale that started today. I got everything I needed to make that Tuscan Chicken dish. I might make it tomorrow instead of grilling because it isn't going to be hot and it would be a fine day to turn on the oven. But, my hubby ALWAYS grills on the 4th so he may say he wants to grill instead. Then I will make it on Saturday.

Glad you are having gorgeous weather too! Enjoy your ride! I hope you are pleased with your baby's schooling!

Yes, I almost wonder if Mo is too gorgeous! I do want another boy for my girls and he is as beautiful as the girls Razz So I am back to being torn between Mo and Min. Meigi, Mo and Min - I guess I have a thing for "m" boys! Laughing

BTW - I am making the Orzo to go with it. I have never made it before.

I am excited to see how you like that recipe! I think it is delicious and super easy! I am glad I inspired you to try something new. I hope you are not disappointed.

Well, reform school girl tested me to the limit last night, but I can see the results of the training because I was able to keep her in line with the techniques my trainer showed me. I just need to mentally gear up for another year or so before she is my dream horse...sigh. Getting them to the dream horse stage takes years and tons of patience. I always pick the spirited horses it seems...and they are fun, but extremely challenging. Shocked

I hope my injured boy gets better soon...I so enjoy riding him. I am a little worried about him, he is still very tender on that foot, but the wound is almost healed up. We are so in tune with each other. I can ride him anywhere by myself and have fun and feel secure. I cannot say that about my mare. She does well with other horses, but that is not always an option.

It looks like we are going to get a thunderstorm here today...lovely. Evil or Very Mad

Have a great day!

I have the chicken in the oven and a flame under the pot to boil for the Orzo. I am going to make the Arugula salad pretty soon. We should be eating about 2:30 or 2:45. I got a fresh loaf of Tuscan bread too! We need to eat early before Justin leaves for work.

When I told Justin what all we were having he said "Tuscan Chicken and Tuscan bread" he said "Hey, isn't this the 4th of July? Where's the hot dogs and burgers? What's with Italian stuff?" Razz BUT, I bought extra legs for him so he is fine with all that! I will be shocked if he eats much of the salad though. The only thing green he likes is $$$$ Rolling Eyes and sometimes green beans Laughing

Hope your boy gets better each day! Your Mare will be your dream horse before you know it! Just hang in there!

Got to run! Have a BLAST!!

I will cross fingers you do not get rain No We are having a glorious day! 77 and sunshine with a clear night! sunny

I know they will love the chicken...mine came out so juicy and flavorful!
If the orzo comes out, I will definitely make that sometime! I love the argula salad with the chicken, it really complements the flavor!

We are having Chimichurri flank stead, corn on the cob, salad, and the works! Hopefully hubby can score some fresh berries at the fruit stand if it is open!

I found this lovely SD that I am swooning over! I will use the inspiration of his lovely face-up for a creation down the road I'm sure! He is on Ebay as an Edward Scissorhand SD...


I just tried on a Pullip fur wig like Milo's on Mo and Thorn and it looks really cool on them! I think I will get a pink one for Mo from Sunny's for a fun change.

The sun is out now! Gotta go! cheers

Done with dinner and clean-up!

Well, somethings were a hit and some a miss Razz With the boys anyway.

Everyone loved the chicken! Will make that again for sure. So easy too! I want to get one of those things Martha had to get the skin off the garlic. I think I spent more time peeling the garlic than anything else Laughing . Love the nice dark brown garlic on the chicken pieces and loved the lemon meat after it was cooked and brown! Yum!

Rob and I liked the Orzo more than the boys. I used just the dill and olive oil like Martha did (except I added some Rosemary and a few other Italian spices). The boys would have preferred some sort of sauce on it.

I jazzed up the arugula salad by adding some more spices to the oil and vinegar mix along with cheese and I tossed in some sea salt and black pepper Texas Toast croutons. Rob and I LOVED the salad. Justin did try it but didn't care for it and Eric wouldn't even try it. Eric loves salad but didn't like the "look" of the "leaves" Rolling Eyes

I actually really did it up by setting the dinning table real nice, using good dishes, silverware and glasses and served the chicken over the orzo on a fancy platter. Rob joked he should take a picture of the platter Razz because I was making a big deal out of making a Martha recipe Embarassed

Anyway, it was pretty successful. I of course made much more than Martha did since I was feeding 3 guys and we only have 2 breasts and 3 legs left. I made 6 breasts and 10 legs as those are our fave parts of the chicken.

I think one Weds. I will pick my mom up and bring her over and make the same meal for lunch for her. We can have a little wine with it Very Happy

Glad the weather cleared up for you!

That Edward doll is stunning! Why do I always like the fur wigs in pictures and not in person? No I so wanted to love Milo's stock wig Crying or Very sad

CanCan shipped my wig yesterday and I got a notice from Grace that the Monigue Gold wigs were being prepared to ship. cheers I am going to try the carrot wig on Rylee too to see how it looks with her green eyes!

Check out the October Taeyang! Awesome stock!

http://www.jun-doll.com/newItems/taeyang.html

Got to go get a few more things done before the fireworks!

So glad to hear the chicken was a hit! And at least you and Rob enjoyed the salad and orzo...It is really an authentic type Italian recipe which tells me you and Rob would love the food over there...it is so wonderful! I think the chicken is such a great recipe and so easy! I will try the orzo based on your experience and will add the cheese and crotons to the salad like you did! Excellent idea! Twisted Evil

Well, I got inspired by the beautiful Delfiniums I have blooming in my perennial garden and did a photoshoot that I posted on DOA..check it out!
http://www.denofangels.com/forums/showthread.php?p=3413089#post3413089

That Taeyang is really nice! I do love the stock! I would love to have it in MSD size for one of my boys! Twisted Evil

Well, off to ride one of the horses and clean a little! Man, I am so glad to have a few days off to relax and get some things done!

Well, we probably would love the food there - but we will never get there No Not unless somebody dies and leaves us a whole lot of money Razz

Yes, the cheese and croutons really added a lot of flavor. I would like to try the orzo again in a different recipe with some sauce.

Mom and I went out for some fun today since I cannot take her out Weds. since we are taking Eric to the neurologist and then Rob and I will spend some time out together. We went back to Bed, Bath and Beyond because mom decided she wanted a few more things for the house that she saw there last week. She bought me the place mats I had fallen in love with the other day! They are the thick cork back glossy ones. They are so pretty! I will bring a link with pix of them later.

Your story and pix are wonderful at DOA. I posted a reply AND I finally have an avi there since I have an "acceptable" BJD! Razz

Yes, that stock would be perfect for Thorn! That is why I wanted you to see it.

Guess what? A gal at PS just got a Meigi-2 and she named it Milo too! So we talked for awhile. She had a few names picked out but her friends and hubby liked Milo best. I guess that boy just looks like a Milo!

He does look like a Milo! Laughing Glad you had fun with your Mom! Those placemats sound really cute for summer/Spring!

Glad you enjoyed my little photoshoot over there...you will probably be one of the few that does! Oh well...I do it just for the pure fun of it anyway. Wink

Well, just rode Milagro for about 40 minutes. Even though it is supposedly only in the mid 80's, it feels like low 90's to me! Whew!

Now onto to some cleaning before dinner! I am up for a no mess dinner tonight! Salad or sandwiches sounds good to me!

TTYL!
