About Me

My photo
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. :-)

LONG time no post

I figure I better get my blog up and running again w/ baby #2 on the way. I've been getting inspired by all of you faithful bloggers and to be honest...i'm feelin a little guilty for my negligence.

So, what's new with the Morton clan? Hmm, let's see... I'm 16 weeks pregnant with baby #2. We have our anatomy US on July 31. And, YES, we are absolutely gonna find out what it is. I can't imagine not finding out! Lanie Mae is very excited about becoming a big sister. She doesn't get it 100% yet. But, boy, will she get it when the baby gets here. She will be almost 3 1/2 when the baby arrives. I really do feel like she will be a great big sister. Her favorite pastime is playing babydolls and she is so nurturing. So, after the initial shock (a.k.a. WORLD ROCKIN'), I feel like she will be fine.

We leave Saturday for a week (a full 7 DAYS!) at the beach. We go every year with Neil's family. But, we didn't go last year and have NEVER been able go for the entire week. We are both ecstatic! The packing stresses me a little. But, it will be worth it.

Well, I'm not gonna promise that I will be the best blogger. But, I do promise to post more than once every six months :-) Have a great week next week. I'll talk to you guys when we return to reality!

We also now have a camper. So, from time to time, I may post some camping pics. This is from Peavine Falls at Oak Mountain State Park.
