A HAPPY BIRTHDAY

A HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY
to the BEST SON*IN*LAW
in the whole, entire world !
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JENT.....WE LOVE YOU DEARLY !!
***
*
*
NOW....
I AM GOING TO TELL YOU A SECRET.....
can YOU KEEP A SECRET ?
In case no one has noticed....
I AM ADDICTED TO THE COMPUTER...TO BLOGGING....!!
SO addicted that I use
PROPS
around SWEET NOTHINGS COTTAGE
to make it appear that I have been working...HARD...
all day long....
*
YES M'AM...as soon as MR. SWEET leaves the house each morning for working at the boot shop,
I RUN lickty split to the kitchen, pour out a little flour on the counter, pull out the rolling pin...
and, walla....it looks as if I've been hard at work on a cake !!
(i keep store bought cakes in the freezer...can make them look homemade in a jiffy!!)
OOO, yes...
I do have it bad...!
*
THIS may be the only way I can break my addiction to "IT"....
**
I keep THIS scene going AT ALL TIMES....
Those shirts have been clean for 8 months now !!
*

And the vacuum cleaner...it is a permanent fixture in the middle of the floor now...
with the cord plugged in !!
OOOOO, yes, girls....
this is what I do.....
stage everything to look as if I HAVE NOT been anywhere NEAR that computer all day long...
I've been too busy....
BAKING....
WASHING....
IRONING....
CLEANING !!!!
*

OH...the lying, cheating...sneaking around....
THE SHAME OF IT ALL...
It almost is driving me to drink but since I don't drink (ok...a little wine maybe),
I can just stand back and look at my little RED STRIP beer bottle I brought back from Jamaica
OR...
I can run get on the computer, go to BLOGSVILLE and see if anyone ELSE is going to Jamaica !!
****************
SEE...I spend so much time working to make it LOOK like I'm working,
I am working up an appetite....
*
I had to get THIS out...
*
So I could make THIS.....
*
Here's a CLOSE UP, just in case you couldn't see it very good....!!
Making you hungry...?
Me, too....just posting these photos made me have to go back for another!!
**

NOW...you surely KNOW that I would NEVER...EVER....try to fool MR. SWEET NOTHINGS
into thinking I had been working all day instead of blogging !!!!
NEVAH !!!!
please excuse me now...i have to go check my freezer
to be certain i have a store bought cake in there !!!
;<)

XO bj
*and...it really IS JENT'S birthday !!

If you say those clothes displayed has been clean for 8 months then I should say you have a dear husband. I'm sure he noticed but he still let you cause she knows how much you enjoy this :-)It was fun reading this post even though it's just a "play" :-)

Seriously though, those fresh strawberries with ice cream is making me hungry :-)

Beverly said...

I'm so glad that I stopped for a minute before I head to work. I need a good dose of BJ, and you were here for me.

I had not even stopped to think that today is April Fool's Day.

Thank you for the smile. I really needed it.

Stacey said...

Oh you figured out my secret too! I have to confess that sometimes when I'm sitting in this chair I just cringe when I hear someone walk in the house. I hate to get caught again. But since I also have a vacuuming addiction, it's usually out there too. I can always say I was vacuuming. :)

Marcela said...

Kisses and hugs

Now if you were really good...you would leave the vacuum unplugged but just run it across the carpet so it makes vacuum tracks so it really LOOKS like you vacuumed!!!

What a fun blog today! Just fits April Fool's Day! You see, I know how much work you do and you don't begin to goof off that much so I knew you were just foolin'. Tee Hee! Don't think Mr. Sweet Nothings is about to let you get away with hanging his clothes in the laundry room for eight months! You are such a fun person! Your dessert looks scrumptious!
Love you!
Martha

Twice as Nice said...

But you do work hard BJ, it isn't easy being a home stagger!! I'll bet you've gotten even better at it over the years. I know I have. It's a wonder I ever have any time for myself...HA. Are we happier after a day of cleaning or a day of 'puttin'? And we are better moms and wives when we're happy. So a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do to make the family happy. That's my story anyway and I'm stickin' to it!!

PEA said...

LOL you had me in fits of giggles reading this post!!! You are so much fun BJ and it's no wonder I so love visiting you....frozen cakes and all! hehe Happy April Fool's Day to you dear friend and a Happy Birthday to Jent:-) xoxo

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Beautiful family!! Many Happy Returns to Jent!

FUNNY post! Sorry..but I totally related to this. The clothes..still hanging. The vacumn sitting in the dining room plugged as if ready to (ha ha) do some serious cleaning..the entire thing...even the cake! So...you are certainly not alone.

I did pull weeds today..you know..just for some fresh air..but you can see where I am right now... :)
HUGS!!!!
Mona

CIELO said...

Happy Birthday to Jent! He's so lucky to have such a nice mother in law like you! Is so good to see you, BJ! May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.

Hugs

FarmHouse Style said...

Girl you are too much!!! I laughed way too hard at this, maybe because I know exactly what you mean:-)

Rhonda

BTW Happy Birthday to Jent.

Denise said...

Thanks so much for the laugh!! I needed it!

Have a great day, Denise

Deanna said...

hahahahahahaha!! I'm sitting here at Starbucks laughing my head off! BJ, you are so funny! I do have to admit that my living room has a permanant display of a sculpture...yep, my vacuum cleaner! I too, pretend that I am about to vacuum. I fool no one but myself!

Deanna :D

Neabear said...

I have fallen behind on reading blogs. Today I am catching up on yours and you have me laughing with this crazy post. Hubby had to come see what I was laughing about. He laughed too! Thanks for your visit yesterday. It is hard to keep up with everyone and post too. So posting only a few days a week is okay too, like you were thinking. That is why I only do it when the mood strikes me or I have something to go with one of the themes. For example I had not done a Pink Saturday in awhile and today I did, cuz I have Easter pretties.
