New Decor Additions

I made this wreath from the burlap and wired ribbon I used for Christmas trees, and I wire hanger. I am actually pretty impressed with how it came out! And it took me 15 minutes? I wish I could have made a bigger one, but I just had an idea for it right after I decided to through all of that away and changed my mind, so I wasn't about to make a run to Hobby Lobby for a wreath ring.

Not bad!
That frame is wooden and I got it at a garage sale for $1. It came with a frame of a Jesus-looking man, but I didn't keep the painting. I just wanted the frame.
I also got this painting/frame combo at the same sale for $1. I really wanted just the frame, as it's gold metal and really neat looking.

I put the picture up one day, just to see how much space it would take up on the wall, and suddenly realized that the colors in the painting actually went with the rest of the room. Then I thought, hey, I have no ugly-art-conversation starters? So I just left the painting in and hung it up. We actually all like that painting, even though it's just dumb looking cougars in a canyon? Although, we all have different opinions of what it is. I do know that the signature says "1968" so that's pretty cool.
I can't wait to make this space really cool. I want to paint those curtains chevron one of these days, just to add some depth. We shall see!

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

My Trip To Rockport

My best friend moved to Rockport 3 years ago when her husband was offered the job as airport manager. His sisters, brother in law, nieces and nephews and mother all lived in that town, and two years ago, the construction on their newly built homes was completed. (his sister and brother in law, and my friend and husband built homes side by side)
A week ago Thursday, she called me and asked if she could bring her family up to DFW and would I be willing to have a few stay with us. She told me that there was a mandatory evacuation in Rockport, but they were thinking it would only be until Monday. Of course, I always love seeing her, so I was pretty excited for an excuse for them to come up and spend the weekend. As the day went by, they were predicting a more severe storm, and the family decided to get a hotel room in Waco, close to their son, who went to Baylor. They wanted to be closer to Rockport and brought animals on the trip, so thought a hotel would be the best option. My friend&#…
