Oh Yea! Pink Flamingos Baby!

For those who know me, I have a little bit of a twisted sense of humor. One of the ways this comes out is that I want a pink flamingo in my yard, but my husband won't let me. (You already know this if you've read all about my riveting life).


The other day, however, my dream became a reality when a package came in the mail...
PINK FLAMINGOS!!!! Two of them...perfectly gaudy, just the way I like it!

This is me calling my dad and singing The Wind Beneath My Wings to him because, well, he's my hero, he sent me pink flamingos!

Isn't my "sick" hair so cute?! Life is good. :)

How fun! My mom LOVES pink flamingos, but she doesn't have any in her yard.

I have a daddy like that too. How sweet. And yes, actually, you look great for being sick. Hopefully you're just a few weeks away from it lifting. In the mean time, I have been catching up on my cleaning. :)

Living in Florida you have a tendency to see people with pink flamingo obsessions, my friend is one of them. All over her yard she had them. She recently moved to North Carolina so I'm not so sure how they are going to be accepted up there lol. You go girl.
Blessings,

Oh too cute. Living in Florida, we see plenty of the pink flamingo syndrome, lol. I would love to see a photo of them "grazing" in your yard. :)

OMG! Thats too funny! We have a plant nursery here in Austin that has this HUGE lot, and the entire thing is covered in pink flamingos. Occasionaly througout the year they change to white for the winter, burnt orange for UT, and when the bird flu was a huge scare, they put them all down on their sides so they all looked dead! lol Gotta love 'em!

P.S. Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today and sending your ideas! I cant wait to try them all out and post the final result! :)
