This is something that I really need to learn and remember.

Im not sure about the background picture. I might see if I can find a better one. I did have a picture of a wilting rose there. But that seemed a little sad and morbid and this is suppose to remind you of happiness. I might work on this some more. I really need to print it and hang it in my house.

So were going to try this new layout out for a bit. I need to work on my banner lol

Let me know what you think?

Is it hard to read? The more I look at it.. the more I think it is.

Maybe it wont last as long as I first thought.


I have had a bunch of photos that I keep meaning to edit. Yes, Im a slacker in other ways besides blogging lol The hubby is out of town tonight, so I thought I might sit down and mess with some of them.

This is from Natural Falls State Park. This shack was sitting outside one of the picnic areas they had.

Im seriously considering listing this in my Etsy shop.

Messing with these flowers was fun! My husband bought me flowers the other day. I need to find something to do with this also. Im in love with it! It might make its way on my wall. Believe it or not.. I don't have any of my own photographs on the wall. I need to fix that. I might start with this! (-:

Day Seven!

Ok so this is the last post in my seven day series about me. (That took two weeks lol Im such a slacker!) I should have just labeled them as entries and not as days.. but ah well. (-:

Just a warning... this will be the most personal of them all. Maybe the most personal I will get on this blog.

This is about one of my most prized possessions. I have several things I hold dear. Things from my grandparents and such. Things you would assume someone would hold dear to them. But this is about this painting.

(This is not the best picture of it.. I will try and get a better one.)

This painting was done by a wonderful artist that I am proud to not only call my friend, but who I also consider family. Family is not always about the people who you were born with. Go check him out. Folk Utopia

This painting was a wedding present. It is HUGE. It is almost the length of our couch. Its a depiction of my family. My husband, his kids, my kids, and me. Its our family. With some other details that our specific to us.

A couple of months ago I went through the worst 24 hours of my life. Seriously. Alot of things went through my mind during this time including how I was going to be able to bring myself to take it down. I almost covered it up. In the process, I also wondered how I was going to be able to let go of someone that means more to me than he probably knows. Because even though he is part of my family, I dont believe we would have been able to keep in contact. At some point it would have gotten too weird and probably not helped me get over things. Thankfully, things changed and I didn't have to take it down or lose someone else that was dear to me.

My worst fears came true during those 24 hours. Fears I had lived with for almost five years.

Fears I now deal with everyday.


But through it all.... this painting will always be a symbol of my life. It means so much and I pray to one day get to a point where I dont worry about my life without it.


I relisted this photograph this morning. I always forget about this photo. But it is one of my favorites! (-:

I relisted my photo cards today.... then it sold! Woo! Then I relisted it again! I think they are great. Not just mine, but photograph cards in general (-:

hmmmm.... I need to figure out how to make it to where you can click on the picture and go to the listing.

But for now.. here is the link!

Day Six!

Day Six here we go!

Another old picture.. sorry about that. It is not that old though. Just a couple months.

I LOVE airplanes, and flying, and anything to do with airplanes and flying lol

I work right across the street from the airforce base. But I haven't been able to get a picture of a plane. This is the best picture I have. I think airplanes runs in my blood. Both of my parents work on airplanes. I went to vo-tech when I was in highschool to be a airplane mechanic. I almost joined the National Guard to be a helicopter mechanic. I only had about a year and a half left to get my license, but never got to finish. Life had other plans for me. Its just something that I love. The sight and sounds make me smile. When Im having a bad day or am feeling a little down it makes me smile to see the planes out flying. I think that being a pilot for the Blue Angels or the Thunderbirds has got to be one of the best jobs EVER! I also wanted to join the Guard so I could fly a C-130! When I was in vo-tech we would sit outside on the patio and watch them do touch and gos.

Ok... so if you didn't already think I was a nerd with the Warcraft... feel free to think so now LOL

I am just glad that my husband likes planes too. (-:

Day Five!

(Ok so is it sad that I always have to look at the previous post to see what day I am on? I'm just sayin :p)

Day Five!

You know.. after I have gotten past the challenge of finding something to post everyday.. Im actually beginning to enjoy all this blogging!

I wish I could have a personal blog... but that is a story for a different time lol

Today you get TWO pictures!

Our favorite place in the world! They do have a better sign.. but this is the only one I have a picture of. It is a little blurry. I apologize for that. But without stopping thats the best I could do driving past it! lol We have started working on a plan to own a B&B there one day. (-:

This is our five kids standing outside the Crescent Hotel. (In Eureka Springs) Yes, I said five. We took a day trip on Monday and went to a state park and realizing we were only an hour drive farther from Eureka Springs.. we decided to go there for dinner! We may be a bit crazy. But it was a good day, even if we spent alot of time in the car lol

TTFN! See you tomorrow!

Day Four!

OK ok ok ... so I missed some days. Sorry bout that (-:

Sometimes it cant be helped!

I may try and get two in today since I missed so many days. We shall see!

Things you can learn from this picture:

1) I make breakfast EVERY Sunday morning. It varies from week to week as to what we have. But it does end up being waffles quite frequently. I got this wonderful belgian waffle maker as a wedding present. I LOVE it! .. actually.. I really really wanted one so I told my bestfriend thats what he could get me and I wouldnt tell anyone else lol

2) I try my hardest to buy made in Oklahoma products. (The Griffins syrup in the background.. which is really the best anyways. I was buying it before I knew it was made in Oklahoma) It is just good to support your local businesses. So as often as I can, I pick those things that are made here. We have lots of stuff made right here. It just makes you feel good. (-:

Im kind oif blah today.. so thats it for now. I will try for one more later. We had an awesome day yesterday and I need to d/l pictures off of my camera!

Have a wonderful St. Patty's Day! (-:

New Listing for Friday!

I have finally listed something new!

Day Three!

This is a little more challenging than I intially anticipated lol Im going to cheat a bit today. I did take some pictures but I dont really feel like getting them off my camera. So you will probably get those tomorrow. Today you get a screen shot.

Im such a nerd.

Yes, I play Warcraft. I actually only started playing because of my husband. He played when we met and it wasnt until after he moved in with me that we started playing together. Three years later (lol) we both still play. It gives us something to do together, that we can also do apart if we wish. Im not one for watching much tv and niether is he. So we have this.

There.... I said it lol

Im a nerd (-:

Day two!

Im on a roll!

So day two... now I know I said I would take new pictures... but this one is only about a week old.

Its totally true!!

I was not meant be down here in the south where it is hot... I was meant to be a Northerner. (-:

I'm doing it!

Ok, ok, ok... I know I have said it before. (I have three other posts to prove it lol) but Im doing it this time. I have been toying with the idea of not selling anymore and just letting it go. But I thought about it and I either need to let it go (which I haven't been able to do) OR I need to really give it a go.

So I decided to give it a go!

I thought if I am going to give it a go.. maybe people would like to learn a little about me. So I am going to post seven days worth of pictures of stuff about me. Ok, so I cant promise them everyday.. but I can promise seven. lol I am going to try and take new pictures and not use old ones, but sometimes that is not always possible. So I will try to not have them be too old. (-:

Here is the first one!

Ok, this is what you can learn about me from this picture.

1) I almost always wear socks. Even when it is 100 degrees outside. My feet get really cold for some reason.

2) I actually have three tattoos! I want more (-:

3) I am an advid sports fan! I like baseball and college football mainly. As you can tell I love the Mets and my Oklahoma State Cowboys (-: I also love Notre Dame, but I dont have socks for them yet.

4) I dislike that carpet. Its in our den. I can not wait until we can replace it.

That is it for today! Look for more tomorrow!
