Happy Birthday Ayla!

Don't think the Bee Bandwagon can work?  Think again!  The duck made this for me, wasn't that lovely?  

The mammogram was great, they read it while I waited.  The chest x-ray I haven't heard yet but expect it to be good as well.

Today is Lala's birthday.  Oh, I forgot, she doesn't use Lala anymore, she is Ayla now, her real name.  She's a beauty, that girl!  And her hubby isn't half bad either!  Twenty five she is!  Where did those years go?  I remember the first time I held her like it was yesterday.  The feeling of that first grandchild in your arms is like no other on earth.  It is life altering.

So grown up it makes my heart hurt!  When Matt deploys I wish she'd come stay with me for a while, wouldn't that be nice?  We could even take a cruise!  Ha ha...

Have you heard of Magnetic nail polish?  I got some and did it myself and it's not half bad.  It was kind of fun to do.  I'm not sure yet that I love it but we'll see.  I have been "into" some pretty wild nails lately, well for me anyway.  I used to be a pink girl.  Now it's turquoise, green, royal blue, purple, and now the magnetic polish in deep blue.  I still don't much like yellow but that's just me.  Oh, and this is not a paid ad either, just something I ran across.

Gosh that's a lot of reading and news for you today, sorry.  Hope your Saturday is totally tits.  Mine too...


  1. Al's new great-granddaughter's name is Ayla. Such a lovely and unusual name. And now I know 2 people with the name! Happy 25th, Ayla!

    YAY for excellent mammogram results! And Bee Bandwagon results!

    My nails are nekkid. Tons of typing lately. And my toes aren't going on any cruises so they are nekkid, too. Poor things.

    Have yourself a lovely day! big hugs xoxo

  2. The before and after pics are brilliant! I'm so pleased the mammogram results were good.

    Ayla is very pretty. Happy Birthday to her. Your first grandchild is very, very special.

  3. What color nail polish do you think that I would look good in? NOTHING! Ha,ha,ha. Your ganddaughter looks gorgeous, just like her grandmother.
    I had a great day golfing, A lady behind us had a hole in one and causes her to pay for drinks for everybody. She was flying high after hitting a hole in one. My friend Jerry had one before. I would love to get one someday.
    Ayla would love to stay with you and I know she would enjoy a cruise. Well Mary LOu and I have to go outside and work on our lawn. We bought a bunch of black dirt to spread around and then put some seed. We hope that it will help to make our lawn back to normal, thick and beautiful. See you Bee.


  4. Happy birthday to beautiful Ayla!
    And that nail polish looks neat! I had not heard of it but I like it. I pretty much stick with shades of pink on my toes and none or clear on my hands but I do admire it on other people! I like the "streaky" effect of this. Hugs!

  5. Happy Birthday to Ayla. It is my baby's birthday today too - he is 37!!!

  6. Happy birthday, Ayla! Looking good, Grammie:). And nice nails. All my nails are nekkid. I only put polish on my tosies, but they are all covered by sox now. And it is raining.

    Big hugs, honey...

  7. Happy 25th birthday, Ayla! And yes, I think it would be great if she came out to spend some time with you while Matt is deployed; I think it would be good for both of you!

    I must say that I rather like that nail polish! I don't wear polish on my nails but I am quite enjoying my purple toenails from my birthday. Not that anyone else can see 'em but I know that they're there and looking good!

  8. Happy Birthday to Ayla. She's at a wonderful age.

    I agree with Miss Linda, it would be great to have your beautiful granddaughter stay with you!

    Never heard of magnetic nail polish. I love the gleam ~ I'll have to try something other than the pinkish shades I use when I do paint them.

    But not in October ~ it's PINK month.

    Happy Saturday!

  9. P.S. And of course congrats on the mammogram! I got carried away with the nail polish topic. ;-)

  10. Dear Bee,
    So happy for you that the mammogram was clean! YES! Whoo-hoo!

    Happy Birthday Ayla!
    And yes, staying with Grandma (I mean cruising) while hubs is deployed is an excellent idea!

    Love the polish options - you're letting your wild side show while still being a gracious lady! There's so many fun things and colors to try now:)

  11. Way to go on the medical visit. Great news indeed.

    You look great Empress Bee. It does work and everyone that's really participating knows it works. Thanks for getting us motivated.

    I just got my nails and toes done on Wednesday. I could easily pass a cruise inspection. I love getting my nails and toes does every two weeks. This time I'm sporting a light pink. I'll go back to french tips next time.

    You have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from chilly but sunny California. :)

  12. Happy Birthday to Ayla. I love the magnetic nails. I saw the display at target but thought I was bad enough at using regular nail polish. I figured I could not do it!
    Also yea on the good mammogram!

  13. I'd love to come stay with you when Matt deploys! I could even give you a massage. :] I love you Grammy!

  14. CHEERS ...
    To Ayla
    To your mammography results
    To the Bee Bandwagon

  15. Bee, You are looking good. Your granddaughter and her husband are beautiful young people, I wish them the best. You are rocking those fancy nails. :):) I loved what you said on your comment , that sarge says pansies have happy faces. So sweet. xoxo, Susie

  16. Happy birthday to Ayla! She can come visit me as well. Love your fun nails! I've been a clear polish or neutral girl with mine. Been thinking lately of breaking out my dusty blue.

  17. I need to start painting my nails again. I stopped for awhile because I was constantly going on job interviews and stuff and didn't want to constantly take the polish off...but now that I'm working I can start painting them again.

  18. Happy birthday, Lala!
    Love that you are trying new things :) You are such a modern grandma! Wish I had one just like you. We could cruise all the time, you know? ;)
    Never heard of this nail polish, but will check it out now!
    Hugs from Ohio,

  19. Happy birthday, Ayla!!!
    Glad your control was ok!

    Big hugs, honey!

  20. Congrats on good mammogram results! Happy Birthday to Ayla.

  21. magnetics look cool. I am not into that crackle stuff myself but love colors. Yellow is such a hard color to pull off too. I have some. I have a nail polish problem myself . Yesterday you talked about wanting to do more things. Are there group or places that plan event with people in your age group. I bet that could be fun.


you know i love comments, don't be shy! and if you are a spammer that got through, buggers to you. get a life somewhere else!
