I have a fun post for today. I received a really fun and sweet little gift in the mail yesterday from two of the most talented and fun bloggers.  I know some of you know them. Vicki from  http://daranger911.blogspot.com/ and Tracy from http://crowsfeetchic.blogspot.com/

Those two are so funny and they just crack me up with their Sock Monkeys.  If you are not familar with their sock monkeys you must take a look here. http://daranger911.blogspot.com/search/label/Studio%20911%20sock%20monkeys

They both collaborated and Vicki made me a sock monkey and Tracy made her bikini.  I wanted one for my lake guest room and she is just perfect.  I just have not found a name for her so I thought I would see if you have any good ideas for a cute name.
In the meanwhile she has been checking out her new digs.


She is checking out the big old farmhouse mailbox in her new digs!!!! I am thinking she thinks that could be a good place to hide when she does not want to be distrubed!

She is liking "monkeying" around with the mailbox.

Then she checked out the sail boat and I told her she would have to wait a few months to take the sail boat out on the Lake. Big snow storm on the horizon!!!

Then she borrowed my reading glasses to read the cottage rules that she must live by.



Then she decided to take a bike ride to check out the rest of the house.

Wow if her legs were just a wee bit longer!!!

Then she saw the new Easter Bunny and posed for a camera shot with him on my dining room table.

Then she helped me with this post so I would capture her in the best light and always get her good side in the pictures.


After all this moving in stuff she is tired and needed to take a rest.  I love her pretty blue eyes and her sweet disposition. Now we just need a cute name for her.  Got any good ideas please share them in your comments.
Thank you Vicki and Tracy I love my new Sock Monkey.  I see many adventures in her future!!!!!

  2. She is adorable, Kris! Love her bikini. I also love your rules for the lake house. I could very easily follow them! If you play off the M in monkey, you could call her Midge, Mona or Mimi.

  10. I LOVE Midge too... it is the name I always use when 'playing' with my daughter!! hee hee So glad she arrived and I am LOVING all of her pics. Macy saw her too this morning before she left for school and you gave us a BIG smile. I think my fav' is her last pose on the pillow. Her belly button cracks me right up -- Macy loved her blue eyes. Her Red Cross button is just the right size... not much room on a bikini. If I remember correctly.... it's been quite a few years since I've sported one of those!

    Thank YOU so much for the sweet gifts you sent my way. Wilhelmina sends her best regards to 'Midge' and reminds her to apply her sunscreen. In a few months that is, when the snow melts. Thanks so much for the fun post Kris! xo

      I can't thank you enough. I just love her little bikini and matching hat. I think she is liking her new digs. I checked on her this morning and she was snuggled up in the bed all tuckered out from her big arrival day yesterday. She makes me smile. Thanks so much.

  18. 'Midge' sounds just right! She lookes like someones peculiar old aunt who moved to a snazzy retirement center in Florida. She always wears outdated huge sunglasses and is ready to throw on a flowerprint mumu when the air conditioning gets too much for her.

    1. So far the vote for Midge is winning!!!! I think she does kinda resemble a Midge and I love your decription of her. That might have to be her story in retirement years!!!!

  22. Well, we sure got to see your silly side today, Kris!! You are quite a natural when it comes to styling the set for your new monkey. The picture of her riding your famous white bike takes the cake! I can see she's already brought out your inner child, and I must warn you, once that child is set free, there's no going back! You better give the fire chief fair warning. :)

    Thanks for laugh! It's a good way to end a long day.

    Now for a name. I really am liking Midge. Mmmm, hmmmm. Mumu Midge.

    1. Ohhhhh Vickie,
      I am so lovin my sock monkey. I think the overwhelming vote for her name is looking to be Midge. I think Midge will have a lot of future adventures ahead. I think too everyone will be surprised to see when she graduates College and becomes a special professional in the future!!! I know you have a busy schedule this month so good thought to you and hopes that the month goes quickly for you. Midge is a sleep very tired today from all her moving in yesterday.

  23. Oh my goodness, you're crackin' me up! I've got a comical visual of you posing 'Midge' (there, does that confirm it for you?!) The one with your reading glasses on, the one next to the rabbit, on the pillow....they're all hilarious....one of my earliest pins on Pinterest was from Vickie's Ranger 911 where the monkeys were jumping on the bed....I have a niece who's crazy for sock monkeys, and I'm always snapping photos of them whenever I see them, sending them to her (like a couple under cellophane at the grocery, to which I added the caption 'HELP! Get us out of here!'). Doesn't take much for us all, does it? :)

    Best to you from Panoply in WV,

  24. She looks like she's enjoying her new digs. That bikini cracks me up. Midge sounds like a good name. Or Gidget? Except I don't remember if Gidget wore a bikin or not. Have fun with her!

    1. Hi Pam,
      I think the overwhelming vote is to name sock monkey Midge!!!! I think it is a good name for her. Watch for future adventures from Midge. I suspect she has some future adventures in the works!!! Have a great week.

  28. How adorable! I remember when I was a girl how sock monkeys were the rage. My cousin had one that he carried everywhere he went...of course if I questioned him about it now, I am sure he would deny it. But his was a boy, lol! Your's is the cutest, how blessed is she to be ready for bikini weather.

  29. Oh, I think she would have to be called Pammy after Pamela Anderson with those big lips!! And the bikini (even though it's not red!!). Looking forward to hear what name you chose for her.

  30. Well, the girls did you proud! Your monkey has a great combo of both of their personalities! I have to tell you I'm a tad jealous of that mailbox. Been on the hunt for one of those forever! I'll just have to enjoy yours for now, especially now that it comes with a bikini monkey!
