Part 2 of the Camping trip

Well time to start thinking of our next camping trip in three weeks. Cant wait to go over the mountain
to the fresh air again. Better get to the laundry mat with last weekends sleeping bags. I love camping
once or twice a year. I tend to be a clean fanatic most of the time but camping allows me to just be
dirty and lazy. However when I shook my blankets I had two nasty looking BUGS I had no idea what
they were. Hmn the things we sleep with when we are out there.

Great Job Ladan! He was the only one that caught a fish. Steve skinned it and cooked it for
him that evening. Enjoy the nice Sunday afternoon.

Oh Deer!

I have more pictures to share but thought I would share these amazing pictures of one of the animals
we got to see camping this last weekend. We couldnt believe how close she came. She was beautiful.
I was so glad Londyn was able to experience the beauty..

Have a great rest of the week. Sure tired and still catching up laundry but so glad for the fresh air this

Frequently asked question

So on a daily basis I get asked how the Wal-Mart is coming. Most of you know that this would not be
my first choice for a neighbor, however since I dont have a choice we are dealing with the noise and
the dust. This is what I see when I open my blinds.

They got their permit to work late. Should as far as I know work until 11:00pm and then
back at it at 6:00am. I heard rumors they will be open by October in time for the holidays.
I wanted to say how excited I was to win the pillow cases from Stuck on Gray(Brittany's Blog).
She did use the true number generator so there was to be no favorites. I am so excited! I am
always entering drawings and have only won once. It was some scrapbook ribbon from But do check out Brittany's blog and the slip
covers I have to chose from. Thanks again Brittany~cant wait to see them.
Now we are off to bed soon I hope. We leave tomorrow for a short camping trip which I must
tell you we have packed for a month. We cant possibly need all this stuff. Better to be safe than
sorry. Jordan wont be able to make it due to work and we will really miss her. This is our once a
year family camp-out and I just hate the fact that her and Lacey cant come. We will have Londyn
who is so excited to be going. She is going to pick lots of flowers and find lots of waterfalls she
says. So with that said I hope to share some beautiful pictures with you when I get home. Enjoy
the rest of your weekend.

A Goodwill Find~

So sometimes when Doug has a client over I plead with Londyn to go to Goodwill
with me. It is never hard as we call it the toy store. She lets me wander and she in
return if good gets to rummage through the toys. She hardly ever leaves with one
but just likes to look and touch. Which always leads us to the bathroom for a good
hand cleaning where she plays in the sink. We can be there a very LONG time.
Anyways I came home with this little scale which I was ever so happy with. I even
took it in the bathroom w/o paying for it as I wasn't about to leave it right outside of
the bathroom in the cart. I just knew someone would walk off with it. It was brand new
and I even had to open the screws and put the bowl on. Great find at $4.99

Then Londyn and I came home and painted a sign. Ssh.. Dont tell Aunt Penny as
Londyn said we were making it for her.

The bottom one is the one I made for me. The top one I added the bird. I like how it
turned out. Now Londyn has gone home. She grabbed my leg this morning and said
"Gammy I love you so much" then this evening as we made a stop at Fred Meyers she
told me that she wanted candy cause it was her favorite Vegetable."  Gotta love that girl.
Even the lady at the checkout said Oh I dont want her to leave. Such a nice lady. Enjoy
your evening.

A Project and a new Header for Blog

So as you can tell I used a new header on my blog. Please leave a comment and let me know
what you think?
I started my project the other day and realized how much I missed it. I even woke up in
the middle of the night and wandered in my room to add something to it.

This is going to get big I can just tell. I am having fun cutting pictures to fit and adding
little treasures that I have saved like a key I added to the rings of the binder. Will share'
more at another time. Yes Kate that is you and your pregnant belly. I need to see that
baby now that she is going on a year old.. I will miss you in the blog world. Do let me
know if you start another one at a later date.

 Bought this pineapple thing at a garage sale and painted one for me and one for
Penny I love the way it turned out. I think I gave 50cents for it.
 I have eyed this at Brittanys for sometime and guess what I ended up with. It is nice
to trade things once in awhile..

 So I made another chalk board I am not overly thrilled at how it turned out but thinking
maybe a little color to the frame might help.

I seem to be going in the nests and bird theme alot lately. Sure love them..
Enjoy your day! Off to a long day at work..

A Day of Pleasure~

Be patient with me as I try to learn how to use my new updated blogger. I am having some
problems with everything falling into place just right. Anyhow the rain came and made me
slow down which has been really nice. I had hoped to get to my lockers this weekend but
guess it will wait. Now I go back to work tomorrow and I am told it is going to be like 83!
I enjoyed a pedicure yesterday. And everytime I have one done I wonder why I wait so long
until the next time. I just made time for me yesterday which was really nice. I went to Costco
and printed some photo's for an upcoming project. Right now they are 9cents a copy. I do hope
to get back and print more. So last night I started my project. I realized that I started this blog
as my personal journey and to share my projects. I hope to get back on track with that as I so
enjoy it. For now I will leave you with more inspiration and stuff I LOVE!

It Finally Came!

I have wanted this book for sometime now! Finally a couple weeks ago decided to order it!
I waited anxiously for its arrival. Once I got it I wanted to wait to open it for a quiet time just
me and my book. Realizing that never  comes I opened it last night. I savored every page.
I had a discussion with a customer yesterday about her Coach purse. I told her about mine. Penny
has several and decided for my birthday back in Feb she would get me one. I loved it and stuck
it in the closet for a special day. Finally Doug pointed out how rude it is to put something away
when someone takes so much time and effort into getting it for you. I didnt really think about it
that way. The customer said everyday is a special day. Use that candle or piece of jewelry that you
are saving. How did she know I had both in the closet. So my point is: Enjoy the gifts people get you.
Buy yourself something nice and wear it. Thanks Penny for my purse. Now off to enjoy this!

My Next Project

So if you remember one of my posts I saw
these lockers. It made me want some for my

And this is what I ended up with. I started masking

last night and hope to start painting in the next couple

of days. They are a little big and not sure how my fam

will act when I ask them to help me put them upstairs.

Let me tell you I loaded these puppies with the help of

my dear 70+friend from work named Sam. Thanks Sam!

My body took a beating but it will be worth it I just know


Next go to my friend Brittanys blog. It is on my sidebar

Stuck on Gray. For some reason I cannot copy and paste

her link. She is giving a great giveaway... Off to bed!

We do not remember days we remember moments!
