If you read my earlier post about my first dog Gracie, you know that I am absolutely in love with my pup. She is such an amazing dog. The only problem we had was separation anxiety (on both our parts). She was (is) super clingy to me. If we would leave you could hear her through the door crying. So at this point in our lives, we had one dog and two cats which my hubby thought was more than enough. I didn't. I knew Gracie needed a friend. I also knew this time I didn't want to go through a ... VIEW POST
Lulu’s Story (Green Antique Dresser)
Look what I got!
I wasn't going to go to garage sales this morning. I told myself, "I'm was too exhausted".I checked the ads last night and there weren't many out there. Good, case closed.So when my daughter's alarm went off at six o'clock, why did I check the craigslist ads? Simply put, because garage sales are addictive. If you don't go, you lie in bed wondering what you missed, so you might as well get up anyway. Well I'm glad I did because I found some goodies. I was the first person at a sale, and I got all ...

I wasn't always a dog lover. Anyone who knows me now will find that hard to believe. Growing up, all we had was a cat. Now I didn't dislike dogs, I just didn't like walking into someone's home and being jumped on, having my legs clawed up and getting showered in slobber. Plus there's the fact that I'm allergic to them. When I married my husband he wanted a dog. I told him no way. I had lots of excuses: my allergies, the jumping, not enough room, the slobber. So for years we just had ... VIEW POST
Garage sale grief
Last Thursday through Saturday, I had a garage sale. It's a lot more fun going to them then it is having them. First of all, in Kansas you never know when to have a sale. Is it going to be freezing in in May? Or will you roast in September? I, it turns out, roasted on Thursday, endured torrential rain on Friday, and then had a pretty day Saturday. I must say I'm pretty proud of myself for setting up and running the sale while my hubby was out of town. I did encounter some odd ducks ... VIEW POST

Time marches on….right across your face
I'm starting to look old. Maybe I'm not starting to, maybe I have been and no one has told me. Because really, who's going to tell you? Not your friends because they want to remain your friend. Not your coworkers because they have to continue working with you. Definitely not your husband because even said lovingly it's a sure fire way to be in the dog house for a long time. I know I'm vain to even be talking about this but things are definitely going down hill fast. I'm hollowing out under ... VIEW POST
Boring Beige Basement
Hi Everybody! I want to introduce you to my best friend Mandi.Well I guess she's not actually my bestfriend per se, and I guess er, friend might be pushing it a bit seeing how I've never um, technically met her. I really, really, want to though, and we could be best friends -- you never know. Mandi's was the first DIY blog I ever read. I saw her on the Nate Show, and I was hooked. She is a DIY legend! Mandi is giving away an Epic Room Makeover, so I entered and I really, really want to win. Sept ... VIEW POST
