Sometimes I just love to grab a new journal and play a bit in it…just be silly…and, of course, that probably means I will create a cute whimsical girl to adorn the page with! I did just that the other day and in a matter of a few mins I had drawn this sassy chick. […]

    This is one of my favorite blogs ! When your Granny lived with us, I would say to her so many times, “Don’t worry, Be Happy”. ReplyCancel

Springtime has been filled with an array of things making me and my mom smile and pulling us towards summer!  I’m guessing her heart smiles big when I’m wearing my “Surfer Boy” tee because she keeps squeezing on me and telling me how “stinkin’ cute” I am. And, then, because those breezy spring days call […]

Ah, quaint beach spots always make me smile!  The cute town of Seaside is close to our home, and we love going there to stroll along the beach, check out some of the shops, or do a little taste testing at some of the yummy cafes and airstreams. And, of course, I love taking photos […]

    Enjoyed your post today, Tucker! I am familiar with administering fluids to little Westies like this, having had to do this myself with our Bentley. It was a tough time for all. 🙁 I’m sure you are in great hands with your Mommy and Poppy!

    The smoothies look delicious!! We’ve been making them with our Vita Mix and even the kids will drink the green smoothies! 🙂 Thanks for sharing – I’ll have to try the Hawaii Dreamin’!

    What a sweet bunny painting! Reminds me of a book I read today by Jan Brett – her drawings are incredible.ReplyCancel

    • amteatime - May 5, 2013 - 12:20 pm

      Hi “Miss” Cindy! Thanks so much for stopping by! Oh, yes, you know all about the extra TLC we sweet Westies sometimes need!! I sooo appreciate all the love and care I’m getting, and I can just imagine that sweet Bentley did, too! Let us know if you try the Hawaii Dreamin’ smoothie and how you like it! My mom is always thinking of new combinations to try…that is a fancy machine, I must say! 🙂 My mom says “thank you” for the compliment about the bunny…we want to check out the lady you mentioned. Sounds like we’ll find a dose of inspiration there! Hope y’all are having a happy spring! Big hugs, sweet friend!ReplyCancel
