Okay, for real I've been learning how to make my blog be what I want it to be. I find peace in that, maybe that's what has kept me from being what I consider a "real" blogger. I'm just not "cookie-cutter" in any way, form or fashion. I have always marched to the beat of my own drum. And I never liked all the "ready-made" templates for blogs. So I suffered from a bout of embarassment. I chuckle, not really embarassed (like when your skirt is tucked into the back of your panties and you don't know) but kinda. But to me a blog is personal to the person writing it so it should be a reflection of who they are, their style. And up until now other people's designs weren't cuttin' it for me.
But between homeschooling my oldest 2, keeping the 2 year old out of trouble, cooking, cleaning, keeping my sanity,being 8 months pregnant, preparing for the holidays....i won't go on. Well, just one more thing...AND the fact that my 2 year old I mentioned two lines up had mysteriously found the USB cable to my camera and then mysteriously lost it just adds to the chaos ( I can't upload ANY recent pictures!). sigh...................But ALAS, I am making progress! If I don't find the cable today, I will purchase another one TODAY :o) And I'm almost done/ready to make "MY BLOG" a reality!
So again, not that anybody is reading this....heeheeheehehee.....but maybe one day when I make it to the big time this will be in my archives, oh my humble beginnings will be revealed.

Wow! Okay first of all, I just learned how to upload pictures to my blog....for real, I'm LOL...but it's because it's a time thing. I want to do this thing so bad, but it takes time.....uggggghhhh! But okay, so here it goes....The first picture is of us when we were dating.....12 years ago! And the next is one of my bridal portraits. It was taken on the back lawn of Oak Hill, the home of Martha Berry. This is the house Reese Witherspoon "pretended" to be hers in "Sweet Home Alabama".
This picture is of Adam and myself exiting the church on our wedding day....almost 10 years ago. And yes that is silly string hanging from his suit....crazy cousins. Another story for another day. But I love this picture, it makes me smile, a LOT! And it is a good start to getting pictures on my blog. I like telling stories with pictures.

We had the best day on Wednesday. The kids and I made boiled eggs (we need the shells for a project) and we had egg salad sandwiches. We (well, I) put together a picnic lunch and met Adam. We actually spent about an hour at the Chatahoochee River. It was soooooooo beautiful. A great day to bask in God's greatness. Pictures to follow soon. We had such a great time, Harrison especially loved it. He threw rocks, got in the mud and of course walked right into the water. We saw several men fly-fishing, we saw a flock of geese enjoying the day as well. Thank you Lord for sharing your goodness!
Before heading home we stopped at the Goodwill (for snooty types you won't enjoy this). But let me tell you, I hit the "mother-lode".....no joke! I was looking for some fabric and I needed to grab Harrison some shorts since he spilled nearly a whole bottle of water on him(no, he didn't get them wet at the river....he waited until we got into the van a poured his drinking water on himself....bahahahhahaaa, just like a boy!). As I was perusing the drapery, blanket, and towel section my eagle eye spotted two ginormous bags of what appeared to be "FRINGE"....yes, that's right, one of my love's. As I heard this little-old lady as the Goodwill attendent "what is that?" she quickly replied with "i have no idea".....I knew it was MINE! I felt like the wicked step-mother on Snow White plotting and scheming.....and in seconds my eyes gazed upon my find. And I'm still a little shaky when I say it out loud, but as I looked at the sticker I had to pick my bottom lip off the floor! $5.59 on each bag.......be still my beating heart! "No stinkin way!" oh yeah, I didn't care if it "hair-lipped" the governor I was getting that. (pictures to follow of course). Once I had a real opportunity to look it over I'm thinking if I tried to buy it brand new at the fabric store I'm looking at paying at least $100 easy. "Hallelujah!" My creative brain is still high......can't wait to put it all in action. I also picked up a beautiful white, solid, heavy turkey platter for $5, a classy gold lamp with a tacky-white trash looking shade (already removed of course) for $7, and another great find.....white, tab-top, checkered, sheer panels....two pair for $8. They have even been dry-cleaned and pressed! We had some when we got married and they were cream colored. I used those things over and over and over and "mistreated"(see the Nester for definition of this wonderful term :o) them in every way. I think I eventually gave them away so I know that seed was sewn and now harvested!
I truly love good deals and it's not so much getting things "cheap" but the adventure of the find! It's like a treasure hunt for me......I love a good challenge :o)
More to come later...............gotta go highlight my hair (my hairdresser is on a cruise.....the week of Easter! oh well, I'm glad for her, she's hardworking and deserves it.....and my hair budget is getting used for something else fun!)

Life is good and we're entertaining the idea of moving. I would love to move to the house that we've got our eye on. Details to come later.
But the kids are great. Everyone is growing and healthy. Spring fever has hit all of us, but unfortunately our weather is so unpredictable we go from one extreme to another on a weekly basis! Crazy for sure. Just two days ago we had 70 degree weather and today 40's and snowing :o) And then the sun will peek out for a few minutes and then back to snowing! LOL As much as I want warm weather the longer it stays cold the fewer nasty mosquitos and bugs we have this summer. So I'm at peace with whatever we have.
Until my next post........
