Ah Bed~

I am so excited to crawl in bed tonight. It has been a very long

day... I had Londyn today, she is a busy girl. Her momma is

off now for four days and after a 16 day stretch she is ready. She is

tired so good ole mamma went and cleaned her place today. She just

is home long enough to sleep and awake so hasn't given her much

time for anything else.. Along with that Noah is moving back in so

we are getting him settled. Lots of going up and down stairs.. Needless

to say I am ready for bed.. I found this linen the other day. love it!

I have no real theme I am going in but love it all. Enjoy your Sunday.

The sun is out and it makes me crazy with chores~

Easter pics to share

Is she not the cutest thing you have ever seen~ Her mommy

was gone so we tried to make the best of photo's w/o her and

if you read on my previous blog I do not do hair! So I was worried

when I left her hair down. I think they turned out fine. This girl

has never had her first haircut or trim. I have like 17 to share with

you but blogger is being slow so more later.

I am off to Dream~
Cant wait for Friday to get here... I have hopes
to plant some flowers, do yard work, build a shed
and get some organization done in my home oh and
if all goes well print some photo's of Londyn's easter
pics. Enjoy your sleep~ What will you dream about?

So the day didn't quite go as planned

Burger King!
So long story here~ Jordan left Wed for buisness and will be back
Monday.. So we are enjoying our week but missing mommy dearly.
With Easter weekend we are trying to make the best of it w/o her.
We had Easter pictures last night with Jenny from Classy Capture.
The evening was nice so she took some outside photo's. Cant wait to
see how they turn out. Today I planned to take her to North Albany
for chocolate bunnies and picture with Easter Bunny. Grandma great
was good to go, so off we went. However when we got there the line
was way out the door and way to long for a two year to wait and a grandma
great to stand in line so we bailed on that idea. We went to lunch instead.
Mind you I got up at 5:45 to catch up on some much needed house work.
Londyn woke at 7:15 so made for a very long day.

Gammy does not do hair never was good at it. Can barely do my

own. That is where we miss mommy.

Showing grandma great her silly face..

Sorry mom not the best picture but i love them all.

Things were going so well until she started vomiting

everywhere and we made a dash to the bathroom. Why do people

look at you like you are the worst people in the world. Dont they

remember what it was like when they had kids. Oh well.

A little blurry but this was the first of many banged

up knees to come. Must of been the cheap flip flops from

Old Navy. Poor baby rough day!

Look what my mom found in her attic for Penny and I. We split

them of course. I have been wanting some of these for awhile. Made

my day after the apparent bee sting I got in my finger at moms today.

I put my hand in a bird bath to dust off and thought it was a splinter

until I got home and it swelled and was beat red and pulsating. Oh

and after leaving my cell phone on top of the car and driving off it got

ran over, I had two pull over and pick it up in three pieces. It is not pretty

but it still works.

At the end of the day Penny and Tony came over with goodies for

Londyn. She loved all her goodies. Thanks so much Penny for the

spilled bubbles on the floor, spilled koolaid from the bottle caps,

and the sugar of course. Thanks for making her day special.. love you!

Close your eyes!

Aunt Penny loves to spoil her. So my day didn't go

as planned but I wouldnt change a thing. I am going to have a

day of rest tomorrow. Happy Easter to all~ Enjoy your Sunday..

Catching up!

I really want to start getting back into my scrapbooking it gives

me such joy! This one I started Friday and didn't get finished

until today.

I have wanted one of these cloches(sp) for along

time. This was my treat for working yesterday at the

Vintage Market. However that will probably be the

last time I fill in because they are moving into the

antique booth across the street. Brittany's booth is

right inside the door to the left. She has a window spot.

It is so cute! She already had her first sale and hadn't been

there but a few hours. Not sure where Marianne(sp)will be

yet! They should be at both locations for another week or so.

My little easter egg decoration~

A peek at my new bed I found on Craigslist. I have wanted to

replace my bed for sometime. I think we had the log bed for like


I will miss my old bed. It gave alot of height.
This was the hutch I listed on Craigslist for free~

We had over 85 responses for it. People even offered to

pay me for it. It needed new paint and a little tlc but it

served its purpose over the years. Of course I chose the

lady that was putting it in her craft room. Hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

This Girl

This picture is one of my all time favorites. It makes me smile first thing in the morning.
She has since moved out of our home two weeks ago! Of course

she still calls this home and says I want to go to mommy's house.

This was her coming over first thing in the morning Sunday when

mommy had to go to work. We had breakfast and she caught us up

on her day. Yesterday she came by walked in and said "Im Home".

Then found her Gammy and reached gave me a big hug and said I

love you so much... Melts my heart. She loves to come see me at work

and I am so proud to show her off to my customers...

I have became an avid Craigslist shopper this last week. I am in love!

I listed some things on there and bought a bed over the weekend.

Jordan found a boston terrier last night and oh yes has got herself

and Londyn of course a new puppy. He is sooo cute!!!! He is a licker though

and will give you a bath if you want it. As much as I miss them both

I see the independence in Jordan and love that she is doing so well. I also

am reminded how much my mom helped me when I got my first place and

how nice it was to say can I borrow~ What goes around comes around.

Enjoy your evening...

Isn't this a cute idea!
Great idea for gift cards!
This picture is for Penny! She is storing one of these

doll houses for Daelene and while it isnt really hers to do

this with it sure is a cute idea. Enjoy your week!

Getting ready for Junk Swap!

This girl got the chair and crawled up and washed her hands.

She loves to get ready right along with Gammy!
So Londyn wanted to go to Goodwill for Toys. She knows

where to go. I scored this mirror for $3.99! Was going to paint

and turn into chalk board but kinda like it the way it is!

Getting ready for Junk night at the Vintage. I took two items.

I came home with this adorable basket. Welcome Spring!

Kinda funny I ended up with something of Penny's go figure.

Happy Friday~

Loving my space!

Still need to label my jars with chalk and hang shelf.
My little desk lifts to put my layouts in! I love that.

Storing fabric in my basket above bed..
These two white drawers on the wall hold my inks. I love them!

This is a work in progress. I love my scentsy on top!

Might paint the shelf white. My closet is all scrapbook stuff

to. Waiting to be organized.

Okay so the dresser at the end of the bed is going to go to Jordan's

house she just hasn't picked it up yet. But I loved it so much and

didn't really want to part with it. How great it would be to store more

scrap stuff. So today when I stopped at Goodwill guess what I found.

Yes this beauty for 19.99. Who could resist!

Finished my "Hope" letters yesterday! The frame on the right

I found at Goodwill too for $3.50! Think it will be a chalkboard!

My new entry way. Ignore the ugly dog bed. They love it though!

I had a coat rack tree stand with bench that I gave to Jordan when

she moved. So I rearranged around and had a fun day of playing.

I had the wall full of stuff. I took everything down and said Less is More!

Rooster found last week at Goodwill. I know it is my addiction.

Upstairs landing where I moved things around too! Like this

corner. The bottom drawers open for laundry. But know room

in my laundry area.

HOPE~ well that is what I was hoping for today when my mom had

her check-up. I am so thankful. Thank you God!

Her tumor has not grown and not spread nor have her little ones grown.

I know we have alot of friends, family, co-workers, customers who pray for

her. THANK YOU! Continue to pray if you will . Next appt 3 mo!

We do not remember days we remember moments!
