Well, ladies & gentlemen. I must confess something. I am an addict. Yes, that is right I have a problem. So, I will start this way... Hello, my name is Misti and I am a Stalker!

Don't laugh! I know that there are others out there that are too. Let me just define stalking to clear the air. Stalking: the harassment of other people due to following them. Did you read that? FOLLOWING OTHER PEOPLE!

I just can't help myself. I must admit, every night before I go to bed, in the morning and several times through the day I check the blogs that I am following. I get so excited when they have a new post! It is like a high for me.

There are too many blogs that I get my fix from to list, but here is a few: Theresa, Mindy, Amy, Cathy & Deidra, Patti, and the birthday girl herself, Debbie. I stalk over 20 blogs a day.

The worst part is that I even get excited about being stalked myself! That is WEIRD! Come on people I know that there are those of you out there that feel the same way. I need you support. So, if you are a stalker too and or if you like to be stalked, please let me know. I need to know that I am not in this alone!!!

By the way I think that I have even contaminated my husband, David. That is right. Just click on his lttle name here & it will take you to HIS BLOG. My business partner Alisha also has a blog, as well as big girl McKay. You should stalk them too! LOL!

Junkers Paradise

That's right everybody! That is what we spend Presh's birthday doing-JUNKING!!! Can you think of a better way to spend your birthday. Okay, well maybe there is a few better ways to spend your birthday, but we didn't have time to get our passports!

Anywho, the day stared out good and progressively got better. We went here and there finding a few little odds and ends. Then we went to a little antique store that was on our way home. There we found a GREAT little garden ferris wheel. The next stop was the best stop of the day. Alisha said that she had been driving through town and saw some junk outside of this store and thought that it might be a thrift store of sorts.

Well, as we approached the place where she had previously scoped out some treasures there was a sign outside reading "Vergil's Electric". It looked like a store.
At least that is what we thought. As we pulled up we saw an older gentlemen on the telephone in the front window. When he saw us checking out the goods he came outside. He ask, "Can I help you ladies?" Alisha replies, "Well sir, we were wondering if this was a thrift store". Virgil (Well that is who I assume he is, but you know what happens when you assume) states, "No Hun, this is my house". Can you just say, AWKWARD! He did say that he was wanting to get rid of a few things and we could get out and look. Well, you know the rest.

We bailed out of the car like a coon dog on his first hunt. (Slobber and all!) Much to our surprise we had found a GOLD MINE!!! We went into his little work shop on the side of his "home", only after he told us that he was gonna tear it down. I believe that the angels in Heaven rejoiced at the great things that we found in there. Then as we scanned the shop Alisha said, "shut up" because that is always what she says when she is excited about a fab find, "check out those fixtures". They where thebomb.com!!! I said well, "ask Virg how much". Can you believe it. here we are at some man we never meets house and I am giving him a nickname. Alisha couldn't believe it either. She got so cracked up about it that she could not even ask.

Finally, she got it together and ask Virg"how much". He replied back with a great story about them coming out of and old church. We where in love! With the fixtures, not Virg. Needless to say they are property of M2 now along with a few other finds from "Vergil's Electric".

I will just put it this way. Alisha has third row seating and there was only room for the two of us! Oh, happy day! It was one GREAT junkin' day!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you...

Happy birthday dear Presh-Presh! Happy birthday to you!

Well, I am sure that some of you are wondering who the heck Presh-Presh is and why do we call her that. It is my very own partner in crime & business, Alisha. Today I am celebrating her birthday because she says that she "does not celebrate them anymore she just has them". WHATEVER! I am always looking for a reason to celebrate!!! (and eat!)

Besides that Alisha is well worth celebrating! She is Fab-U-Lous as Deb from Talking Trash would say! Her husband Justin sure thinks so, that is where "Presh" comes from. Justin calls her Precious, but just "Presh" for short. And that she is! She is a great mom as you read Sunday, a WONDERFUL friend, a truly passionate person! And the list could go on & on...

Love you Presh! Hope you have a SUPER day!

Honor Thy Mother

Well, this Mother's Day I would like to honor two mother's. The first is the better part of M2. She is great mom to McKaylei! I wish I could tell you the miles that she logs driving back and forth to McKay's Cheer practices & competitions. I know for a fact that it is a couple of hundred miles a week. No joke!!! She also puts in hours on end standing on her feet to make sure that baby McKay is "Best Dressed" in the K-town Jr. High! She is McKaylei's BIGGEST FAN! There are a million more things that I could say about what a great mom she is, but instead we will just say
Three Cheers to Alisha!!! The second Mom I would like to honor today is THE MOST SPECIAL mom in the whole world!!! My very own mom, THE QUEEN B! She has been a SUPER mom to me. She has been many things to me in my life time. Here are just a few: costume designer, hairstylist, makeup artist, therapist, disciplinary, comforter, supporter, doctor, party planner, chauffeur, cook......and the list goes on......
I could never thank her enough for all that she has done for me. She has taught me so much. But most of all she has showed me how to LOVE!
Happy Mother's Day!

Funky Friday!

Hey all of our blog family! We hope that you guys all have a Fab-U-Lous weekend as Talkin' Trash would say!!! Speaking of trash, I almost forgot that it is trash day! Sorry, peeps no time to blog! The neighborhood trash is calling. We must do my Friday morning duty and go dumpster diving! It is the bomb.com. Our husbands get so embarrassed that we (me, Alisha & even McKay) do this! Oh well! We get some GREAT stuff! Maybe I will post some finds if we get something great today! Keep your fingers crossed!

Peace, junk & dumpster,

The swine flu...

Just exactly what is it? I am not really sure... If anyone knows could you please let me in on it.
I do know this ... M2 is in full swing and we are junk and creating! We do need to get the bug to motivate us a little more. The coffee bug that is! Isn't this thing just thebomb.com? I LOVE IT! I saw it in Warrenton and just feel in love with it!

Alisha and I love a lot of the same things and one of them is COFFEE!!! When we are doing a show we just cant live without! That is why I am thinking that this will be one of our main hang outs in the fall. That is right ladies and Cat Daddy. M2 is on the band wagon! WE ARE GONNA BE SET UP AT ANTIQUE WEEK IN THE FALL! We are busting at the seams with excitement. We hope you will be too!

Peace, Junk & Coffee!
