I'm Are Smart!

No. That is not a typo! It is a quote from my little Alex a couple of years ago when she had figured something out. She said "Mommy, I'm are smart!". It is just an Alex-ism that will forever be used by several of us! Do you have -isms like that? I would love to hear them!
Here is why I'm are smart..I created a blog button! Yay me! I have wanted to do it for quite some time and since I opened my shop this week, I thought that would be a good reason for a button. I need all the advertisement I can get. I would appreciate any takers of the button!!
My friend, Cheri, was ready and willing to help me make it, but I know she is busy and since I'm are smart, I thought I could figure it out! Thanks, Cheri! I hope you like it!
Do you like it? Would you go there if you could? I think it is inviting.
Thanks for looking. Have a great day!
Until next time.

Meet my newest baby!

I have just opened a new shop on Etsy. If you do not know etsy, it is a site for all things hand made. I really like it and have been there several times looking and shopping. I have been making jewelry for a while and decided to put some of it on the site for sale. Since my shop is new, I am offering free shipping until May 1, 2010. This offer is only for my bloggy friends, so leave me a comment telling me what you want and I will go and take off the shipping before you pay. Click the button above to go visit. Let me know what you think.


Gotta go outside and play!

My Husband is a Star..and I Won a Giveaway!

My Husband is a STAR!

We went to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, TN for Spring Break last week and had a blast! We planned out the whole week and ran hard, but we did everything we wanted to do!

We went to the Dixie Stampede, which is dinner and a show. We have been there several times and never tire of going there. The kids love it. While we were sitting among a thousand people, someone came by and asked if we wanted to be in the show. I immediately said "no" because we had the kids and I had flip flops on and to be honest, it made me really nervous. I do not like being the center of attention. Autumn was upset at me for not doing it and I started to regret. I was wondering if I would ever be asked again. Guess what? They came back! A different person came and asked. We decided that it was meant to be, so off we went. I had to wear Austin's tennis shoes and Autumn and Austin sat with the girls. We were one of only four couples racing stick horses and we WON! Too much fun!

On to my Husband. The next night, we went to the Comedy Barn. Guess who was called up on the stage? Just watch and see. He is Julio! ...and a really good one! He is going to kill me!

Funny?...and it wasn't a sweater vest! :)

He was a really good sport! I have shown everyone!


I won a giveaway! Have you heard of Scentsy?

It is wickless warmers that you plug in. They melt scented blocks and are much safer than candles. Go check them out HERE. Thanks, Amber! I can not wait to get my prize!


My Step-Dad is getting better every day. He retires from AT&T this Friday, so we are really looking forward to having him around this summer! Please continue to remember the family of the lost children in your prayers.

Until next time...............

I Heart My Kids Necklace

I have been making jewelry and am really enjoying playing around with it and seeing what I come up with.
I made this necklace and really love it. It shows all my kiddos and I thought the circle in the center represented Derek and Myself. Isn't that sweet?

I made earrings to match. Maybe I will start selling them someday!! What do you think?

Have a great day!
