part of me wishes i had a south facing or even east or west facing house. so in the winter when it snows the sun will melt it away and i won't have to shovel it as often...but then part of me loves that i have a north facing house because my tulips come in later and stay longer. so for now i am happy with my house. until winter. these are my tulips. this is the first year i have ever planted tulips and seen them come in. i love them. there is only one thing that bothers me. the red ones in the back are shorter than the yellow ones in the front. how did this happen! there was no warning on the bag that said short or tall tulips that i can remember. but i love them just the same. the are so pretty. i can't wait till the fall...i am going to plant more in the front and a ton in the backyard. my mother in law gave me a daisy plant that i am planting tonight and look forward to watching the TALL daisies grow in the backyard. i want them to take over back there. i love flowers that are independant!

yesterday was mine and b's anniversary. and to celebrate we went to see Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at the capital theatre. it was so funny...a little crued but funny. we laughed so hard. i am so glad we saw it. for dinner we were suppose to go to olive garden but by the time we got downtown we only had 45min. so we ended up at pier 49 pizza. it was good...i ordered a chef salad because one mention of olive garden i start to crave their salads. i love them. anyway...the salad was GINORMOUS! so many toppings: ham, pepperoni, green peppers, olives, mushrooms, red onions, mozerella cheese, tomatoes, crutons...oh so yummy. well we enjoyed talking to eachother without being interupted and not having to share our food. it was great. i love going out with b....and what i like is that we can act like adults and dress like adults. it was nice. 11 years down...eternity to go.

i love candy apples. it's gooey, chewy, sticky-ness make my mouth water at the sight! we made candy apples for dessert on saturday night. m said, 'this is a party'. i told b that for halloween we need to make these again. and drizzle chocolate over the caramel and then roll it in nuts! YUMMY! i can't wait. the kids really had fun with the caramel. a and k made braces with theirs and m didn't want to eat it cause it was too sticky. f took really little bites but i think it was way too sticky for his taste too.
