I am still here

ACK! What a week! One of my best friends is moving away to New York monday and yesterday was her last day at work. Talk about an emotional day for us! I think her and her mom are coming over for dinner sunday night though. I guess on the upside the Daddy and I will get to plan a NYC trip next spring to visit, but it still wont be the same. I am happy for her though. She is getting married this summer to "the one".

Hmm, other than that the Daddy and I are going to spend the day doing yard work. Our yard NEEDS it,lol. I will try and post some pictures later. We have some pretties blooming out there right now.

Well the girls are off to school so I think I will go get another hour or two of shut eye before Little Brian wakes up. Yep, my baby like to sleep in! I am truly blessed!

Taking the weekend off!



But first, check out my handsome little guy in his new dino pj pants that I made him! I mean seriously how can you not just want to eat him up?

So now onto my weekend off. Let me start out by saying that Hannah has an ear infection and Little Brian had his ears rechecked and they look great! Good and Bad there!

Tomorrow night some of my church girls and I are going to church it up with dinner and this concert. Girls night out, Woot Woot!

After that I am thinking a nice low key weekend at home catching up on some things that I have been putting off like finishing that headboard and such and a little family time would be nice so with that I will meet you all back here on monday!

A new creation!



Nothing too fancy for my fellow bloggers,lol. I was checking out some other blogs when I came across this idea. I had to get the old hot glue gun out and give it a whirl. She ain't the purdiest, but I am proud of her!

My Craft Room in Progress




I have had a few of you ask to see this craft room I talk of sometimes so I thought I would take a quick picture while it was relatively clean. Now please ignore my UUUGLY carpet. It was here when we moved in and is one of the next things on the "To Be Replaced" list. The chest of drawers is one that I bought from my friend who is moving for $30! Back in the corner you will note the "old school" stereo that still works so I am still using it,lol. That is about it I guess. Nothing special. I am just grateful to have my own space. There is also a couch and chair on teh other wall but they are nothing fancy so I chose not to picture them. I dont think they will be in here much longer. Anywho, enjoy!

A couple of yard sale finds

These are a couple of items I picked up last weekend. I also got a couple of framed peices for Hannah's room but for some reason Blogger won't let me upload that photo. This votive holder , the art for Hannahs room, the 2 plate holders, and a couple of other things were only $4 total!! I got them all from the same sale!

A new pillow to love!


I LOVE pillows. L-L-L-Love them! Since it can get pricey to by them I make my own. I made this one last week. I have been using alot of this fabric in my craft room. Not sure what it is about it, but I will sry the day I run out of it,lol.

Mail time!




These lovelies came in the mail for me today. I was super excited to find out that I had won Jenny's blog giveaway! You can visit her over at Fated Follies Studio. If I am not mistaken Jenny made the tags, which are adorable. I did include this last picture for fun because if any of you are like me then you will automatically think of the scene from "A Christmas Story" when the leg lamp comes in the mail. Cracks me up every time. Oh and Jenny, kudos to you for recycling. Nothing wrong with that.

I have a favor to ask

Hey everyone,
I have been busy working on a few projects and I hope to have some pictures for you all this week. I do have something else on my mind today. Actually this friend of mine has been on my mind most of the week. Her name is Joann and I met her a few years ago through one of my best friends that she worked with. Joann was diagnosed with cancer this week and the doctors have told her that there is no hope. Not too long ago she had to battle breast cancer. At best she may have 6 months to 1 year to live. She is a member of the church that we attend and is a very sweet lady and I just want you all to remember her in your thoughts and prayers.
Thanks in advance to you all!

CVS rawks yall!

First the bad news. Little Brian has another ear infection. This is the 3rd time since february that his left ear has been infected.

Now the good news. I LOVE CVS! I had a coupon for a $25 giftcard if I transferred prescriptions there so I took Brians prescription from the doc today and got my giftcard. They had CVS brand pullups on sale. 2 packs for $12 which is awesome in itself but even better since with my giftcard they were free! To top of a good experience they were out of the generic form of his antibiotic so they gave us the name brand and only charged for the generic to save us another $20!! Add in all the new coupons and extra care bucks and I was one happy shopper!

Help! My baby is growing up


Look at this sweet little girl would ya! I think it is finally safe for me to post on my blog that she has her first boyfriend. His name is Jordan and now that she is out in the open about it boy let me tell you I cant shut her up! Ha! No really next year she will be in middle school which is 6th grade here. For all of you mamas that have little girls and heck I think this shold apply to boys also, the most important thing you can do is talk to them. My girls both know that they can talk to us about anything and they do. Kristen told me tonight that she was gonna miss it when I stopped coming in her room and talking with her about her day before bed time. I of course was unaware that I was planning on stopping,lol. Well thats all for tonight folks. I am tired and off to bed!
