About Me

Thrifty finds, DIY, and a soon to be Home Reno...


I love to find cheaper ways to do expensive things. Whether this be through Thrift-store-shopping or DIY decorating, I find a way to get it done. I NEVER shop in the regular priced area of a store. If I do happen to see something I love that is regular priced, I wait til it goes on sale. OR, i make it my own version of it. I love to paint and do crafts. However, being a mother of two and a night-shift nurse, I have very little time to do it. We are also in a rental home while we search for my forever home. So, I am LOVING the blog world right now as I find ideas for my new home. Be sure to follow me so I will know I'm not just blogging to myself. :-)

Good Grief...

This has been a crazy week. It has been so long since I've logged in here, I forgot my password. Pitiful, huh? The week started out with me working 3 nights in a row without childcare. Poor Lanie Mae had to play solo while I layed on the couch trying to stay awake until nap time. Finally, on Wednesday, my Mom (Nana) and my neice, Anna Charles (Cha Chas) came to visit. I got a few hours of uninterrupted sleep and things started looking up. The visit from my Mom was great. We just hung out and watched the two princesses play (and fight...what can I say??? they are ages 2 and 3 & FEMALE) Mostly, they played. They are adorable if I must say so myself.
o.k....I cannot figure out how to rotate this on here (it keeps showing up vertical) But, I just wanted to show what I get greeted with when I get home from work. You can get the idea, even if it is upside down.

Neil had to bring LM to me one morning at work. This is the souveneir she got (and O.R. cap!)..unused, of course!

Cha Chas loved Lanie Mae's t-ball set

Nana and her girls

The last entry I made was before we went to Eric's b-day party. We had a blast! Good food and good friends, what more can you ask for?

Lanie Mae is practicing for Aug 22

Neil and I are headed to Ross Bridge today for a couples day/night. Lanie Mae is spending the night with her Nonee and PaPaw. This will be the first time she spends the night away from us. I am very anxious...but, I know she will be fine. I know we will have a good time (I will post pics next week)

Oh yeah, this is for husband rocks b/c he cleaned the house while I was at work Monday night. That's all I've got this time! i'm tryin! :)

Glad to see an update, Kelli. Great job on giving props to Neil. Before you know it you'll be doing "my husband rocks! Friday" and you'll have a t-shirt, too : ) Hope you guys had a great time at Ross Bridge!
