4 ornaments and a fifty year old

candy cane bug ornament 6" ball

snow wolf ornament 6" ball

polar monkey ornament 6" ball

evergreen bug ornament 6" ball

last night i was inducted into full blown hagdom as my friends who are already in their 50's welcomed me into the fold. predictably i have a bit of a hangover even though i barely drank (gimlets). i actually turned the big five-0 on thanksgiving day which was a lovely day with several generations of family.

iamnot said i was a coward for not posting my real picture on the mute monday "all about me". so here i am, full frontal in my messy-ass princess room. moi, these are the harley davidson boots that look like those Fryes you like. thanks to all for the birthday wishes and a special shout out to mayden and vanille. thanks grrrrrrrrrrls.

You just had a birthday? How AWESOME! Happy, happy, birthday!

Look at you rockin' that totally cool outfit. Fifty, schmiffty. Fifty is the New 40. Or in your case, the New 30.

But dang. Now I have to Google Harley Davidson boots and there could very well be a dilemma here . . .

VE: thank you! im glad you like the ornaments i want them to be not too feminine. it seems the menfolk gravitate towards the monkeys. hmmmmmm.... i will be along shortly to save the gnomes.

moi: thank you, thank you. my hip said 50 is the new 50. grrherhahahaha. well, yeah, i was tryin. i wasnt going into the fifty induction party lookin' rough! the boots have a buckle up at the top of the boot too. i like mine loose so they stand out from the leg a bit. i love them.

aunty: grrrerhahaha. i know it. i am showing off. but thats ol K9 for ya. and yes mr K9 is a fine looking man no question bout it. and he is a good man too. thanks for the *gulp* half century mark greeting. when ya put it like that....

/t: yep! i mean bugs are like tiny jewels in their own way dont you think? i tried to find the photo you posted of yourself recently and couldnt. did you remove it? worried about stalkers i suppose. thanks for the luuvvvvvvvv too.

a.b.: that is the BIG DOG! see him in the photo on the right? he is carrying me over the matrimonial threshold. thanks for the fab 50 - its a little WEIRD. i guess i really cant recoil when the young mens call me "ma'am" anymore. grrherhahahahaha!!! yeah look up those HD boots. theyre comfortable too.

My Mister turned 50 yesterday - he's a little uncertain about his new age but started the day by reaching a goal of doing 50 pushups .... something he said he couldn't do at 30. I

You are my new poster child for 50.... and I'll be there soon enough.

Loving the ornaments, looking forward to a snow wolf when you get them posted.
While I love all things dog, I sure as hell don't understand why you are hiding behind the doggie face? Lovin' the boots.

vanille: the virgin bedroom. all the action happens in the boy's room. cougar? i think you have to date ashton kucher for that -and buddy, if i could? i would.
i like the shamrocks pic too - me laying out in the forest - thats more correct. 25? er.....nott even in my dreams. yours either.

diane: you are the sweetest thing! thank you. it is just a number, but those zeros kill. grrherhahaha

aunty: you are TOO kind. you remember that pic? i love that. i may have mellowed a bit remember K9 started with a bite. now im all tame well fed and laying in a dog bed. the princess room? critical for marriage civilization. its the no snore zone. and a place where i can get dressed with plenty of space around it. and where the sheets stay nice and crisp. all elderly ladies, such as myself, should have one.

enemy: i may visit YOU> one of my dearest friends is moving to philly.

thursday next: well i have an advantage in that i am not a gourmet cook in love~

iamnot: actually i probably have the better end of the deal...but i thank you. now see? i have finally posted a real pic but i am still not looking at the camera to protect my soul.

vanille: you just concentrate on taking good care of vanille! but im sure you would write an amazing haiku.

shamu: i should make a sarahdog! ;-) the snow wolf is so sweet and sparkly. and they are large - looks great on the tree. i put that dog face over my face last post cause i thought better of it - now i have posted the real me and then that can be the last of it. no more "showing off" grherhahaha

puerileuwaite: you know my own dog wont stay in the bed with me? maybe i should get a little dog.....;-)

Dang girl, I wish me at 50 looked as good as you at 50. I'm there plus one. Also, I'm new to the princess room concept but am mulling over my suggestions for fishy. And as far as self-portraits, this one is fantastic.
