Borrowed talent...

Tuesday May 19:
Something Borrowed
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I LOVE BEING A GIRL. I love the pretty dresses, the sassy shoes, the cute bags, the hair, the make-up, the moisturizing products that promise me prolonged youth, and best of all, I love that I can still make my husband act like John Travolta in the last scene of Grease when I enter a room. Being a girl is awesome.
With my love of all things girly, it may not surprise you to learn that as a youth I thought it might be fun to participate in a pageant. “Miss Teen America Jeanette” ahh, it has a nice ring to it don’t you think. Sadly I could never be a part of this fabulous feminine festival because, as near as I could tell, I HAD NO TALENT.
I could have paraded around in a fancy dress and heels with ease and even a swimsuit wouldn’t have intimidate me (back then), but thinking of the cursed talent portion of the competition made me draw a blank every time. I couldn’t sing, dance, or twirl a baton. Thus there would be no pageantry for me. So, so sad.
If only I could have borrowed a talent from one of my gifted friends, then maybe I’d be writing this from the top of Trump Towers right now. I mean just imagine what we could accomplish in life if we could borrow talents from each other.

A case in point is my new fabulously adorable blog page. I love my new fabulously adorable blog. And I owe it all to my fabulously adorable and multi-talented friend, Mary Crabtree http://marymaryrc.blogspot.com/
Now there's a girl who should have been in pageants.

I borrowed Mary’s talent this week and ended up with the cutest blog page in all of blogdom.
(I also borrowed these pictures of her from her blog.)

This is us 100 years ago on Halloween. Mary is also very talented in all things Halloween.

And now I just found out that Mary made me a button too. My very own button! So much better than a tiara!
Please feel free to “borrow” one of my cute new buttons by copying that there code found under my button on my sidebar and pasting it into a HTML/Java Script page element.

Then come back to see me anytime. I love having you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Mary. I love my new blog and I love you too.
Now if only I could borrow your talents as a make-up artist every morning.

Boy would that come in handy.
