A Mother's Love... I didn't take this one, but I thought I would still add it in.  My pregnant mother glowing. I love this picture! She looks so cute.

Friday Fill In
1. If you had to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, with all human neeeds -such as food and water, were taken care of what two items would you want to have with you?

This is easy. My husband and some chapstick! 

2. If you were a salad, what kind of dressing would you have?

Oil and Red wine vinegar. It would be simple, but a little surprise at the end.

3.  If you had to live on a ranch, what kind of animals would your raise/own?
Horses! I would love to ride horses! Pigs (Oink), I could help the family Sausage Company with their meat! I would also adopt dogs!! Ooh and cows too. How amazing would it be to make your milk and cheese? so organic
4. If your life was portrayed as a movie, who would you choose to play you and your significant other?
We would be like the characters in "The Quiet Man", John Wayne and  Maureen O'hare. We can fight like animals, but we love just as fierce. Of course, he would not drag me by my hair into our house from town. Obviously, that is a little extreme. :) I think we had this question in a different format a couple weeks ago and I also said John Wayne for my hubby. hehe

5. What was the last thing you put a stamp on? (envelope dah, but what was in it?)
I am a big fan of the post office. I love it! I love sending mail and I adore stamps. I am pretty sure I have mentioned this before on the blog. However, the last thing I put a stamp on was a birthday card for a family member. His birthday was today. Happy Birthday Adam. 


  1. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. I love all your pictures. Your mom especially! She really is glowing. How beautiful! : )

    Laughing my head off about what is the last thing you put a stamp on : )

  2. Thanks for the wonderful comments. Yes, it is too funny that the card was for someone's birthday today. OOps.

  3. Glad he won't drag you by your hair! Kudos for restraint ;) Just stopping by from Wife of a Sailor.

  4. oh my gosh your puppies are adorable! Your pictures are amazing! I forgot about chapstick, good thinking!

  5. Charlie and Lucy look absolutely precious! I had a sneaking suspicion that you didn't take that photo of your mother, though... ;) I half-considered sharing a photo I didn't take (and was taken before I was born), too! And I just have to say it... I LOVE your last name.

  6. Your photos are great! I'll need to join in on the foto fun next week!

  7. @Kara, thanks for the compliment. I am rather a fan of my last name as well... if you couldn't tell. My husband's mother has been remarried for a long time and he didn't know his paternal grandmother very well. I kind of get to enjoy being Mrs. Peacock without anyone else having it too. I guess that isn't too common. Our pups are fun! They are a constant source of entertainment and family discussion. They will do well once we have kids... I HOPE! Thanks for visiting. You should take part in Foto Friday. It's fun. Next week is family and friends theme.

  8. Oh, I'm definitely having fun with Foto Friday (that's how I came across your photos, actually). It's my first time participating in something like this, and so far I'm really enjoying it.

    My husband and I also have reason to suspect that our dog will be good with kids someday... I hope we're right!

  9. Me too! Hope we are both right! I have heard too many ugly stories of owners giving up their pets after having kids... so sad.

  10. Your dogs are so adorable. I like your blog! Thanks for sharing the post about Shutterfly, I might try that. I was thinking of being paperless for holiday cards.

    Your banner is great!

  11. awe thanks for the compliment! I guess I just like the idea of cards and letters that I hate the idea of not having them for the holidays.
