Need to Change It Up

I have lived in my duplex for over 3 years now.  Most of my walls look exactly the way they did when I moved in.  I think know it is time for a change.  I have been gathering ideas on-line.  Here are some of my favorites:






Got any good ideas for me?

Need Your Help!

Awhile back I entered a giveaway on Megan's blog and I WON!!  She was giving away a photo session.  I decided to have her take photos of my 2 nieces and nephew and we finally coordinated every one's schedules and we took the pictures last weekend.  You can see them on Megan's photography blog by clicking here.  While you are there check out her other amazing photos.  She did a great job with the photos of the kids - I LOVE them!!!  Thanks, Megan!!!


Okay everyone!  My cutie pie niece, Tennessee, is in a cutest baby contest.  I need your help to vote for her.  All you have to do is go to:  either or and vote for her in the CUTEST Baby Contest. She is #212 and you can vote once tomorrow and once on Wednesday.

Your votes would be most APPRECIATED!!!

This isn't the picture they used, but how could you NOT think that face is the cutest!?! 

Thanks in advance for your votes!!

10 things

I am one day late with my list of 10 things again this month!  I was just doing too much yesterday to actually sit down to blog.  I have no pictures from yesterday - I am afraid you would be bored.

Several years ago, I made a list of 40 things I wanted to do before I turned 40.  I was too close to 35 to make a list of 35 things so, I decided on 40.

I decided to share 10 things off of that list:

1.  get a Tattoo - check
2.  go to Vegas
3.  write a blog - check
4.  start or join a book club - check
5.  Explore my family tree
6.  get NASCAR pit passes
7.  buy a designer handbag - check (from a thrift store no less!)
8.  go on a cruise
9.  road trip with friends
10.  take off more time from work - check

So, here are a few pictures from my weekend:

 He likes Aunt Barb's sunglasses!
The kiddos with their great grandma.

I am so thankful for my freedom!  We are so lucky to live in a country where we don't have to live in constant fear, where we have a freedom of speech, and freedom to just live.

I have had a really relaxing weekend and I have gotten some stuff done around my house too.

I took this last year - I haven't had my camera out in weeks - I don't know what is wrong with me.  Just haven't been in the mood for picture taking I guess!

We had a bbq and shot of fireworks at my parent's house this weekend - I think we enjoyed the neighbor's fireworks more than anything - they go all out - better than the fireworks show my town puts on!  It was amazing!

Last night I sat outside and watched my neighborhood fireworks with my duplex mate - we ended up sitting outside and talking until almost 1 AM - it was a nice night - the weather was perfect!

I hope you have a happy and safe 4th!

Day Off

I had the day off from work today.  Most of the time that would mean sleeping in until mid-morning, but not today!  I had gone to spend time with my niece, Tennessee.  I don't have any pics from our time as she wanted NOTHING to do with having the camera out last night.

I got up with the rest of the house got up this morning.  I love waking up to Tennessee in the morning - her smiles  when she wakes up are so, so precious and she gave me loves before we parted ways.

Then I went to get my oil changed- I was in and out in no time.  Because of their speed in changing my oil they left a big mess and I started leaving oil every where I went so, I had to go back to get things cleaned up and make sure it was all tightened up - I wasn't so happy about this.

In between my 2 trips for my oil change I went to the hospital to visit friends who had a darling baby boy on Wednesday.  I got to hold him for over an hour - he is so precious!!

I also finished reading The Castaways by Elin Hilderbrand.  I started and finished Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo.  Such a good book - I highly recommend it.  If any of my local friends is interested in borrowing it, just let me know.  It was so good and such an easy read - I finished it in about 2 1/2 hours.

I guess it is time to read my other books!

Have a great weekend!
