one and a half scarfs later

Hi all I'm back from my Easter Vacation of 4 days. Wow it was just what the doctor ordered, I'm finally feeling pretty much like my self, sure I'm not going to to be going on any long walks just yet but I haven't had any need to sleep with my inhaler in my hand, so things are on the up swing. I was so glad to see my Mom. I have never been away from her this long (before) and let me tell y'all I needed some Mom time. Since I'm not speedy Gonzales just yet I actually got to sit and just have fun with her at home. Since sis and I are still having a bit of a cough we did visit our local Cracker Barrel (despite the fact my Dad wanted Arby's or McDonald's) and we had a good dinner. I did manage (with help from Betty crocker) to finally make my very first spice cake in a 13x9 pan with cream cheese frosting. I have only one thing to say Why have I not discovered spice cake more soon? I had made it because of late I have been the neglectful Aunt forgetting Bethany's (march 4)and Mikes birthday (the 14). I really do feel like an inch tall for forgetting, it was the first time, EVER! But any how Mr Mike had asked me to make him a spice cake quite a while ago and me liking to play in the flour I was was game on the spice! It turned out great and my Dad was caught several times with a little "extra" frosting near his upper lip. And yes of coarse I forgot to get a picture of that.

While I was home Mr Incredible took me to Achievers! Oh yeah it was fun and Yes I WAS VERY VERY VERY BAD, aha it felt good to be bad. My big purchase was a Score it and a fancy pants stamp. Oh my goodness half of the store was stamps. I also indulged in some ink that I cant get here. I'm going to be have a baby shower for Raven (Clipie's nice) here soon so most of the purchase were centred around it.

Yesterday I took mom to Micheal's and that was good for her. I also bought one of the Martha bird stamps. (yes Betty you can borrow it) And I'm now regretting not buying the handkerchief pack of Martha paper, I also wanted a punch but they were out. They had no new dollar stamps. And a bunch of miscellaneous Martha stuff on Clarence and I laughed my head off.

I'm Martha, and My stuff is to "special" to go on sale. NOT

As for the moment I'm off in search of a missing stamp (I have it just cant find it) I hope you all had a great Easter, safe travels and enjoy the great weather we are having for the next few days.

Did anybody see the Full page Hobby Lobby add in the Sunday paper. I'll take a pic and post it later.

Glad to hear your feeling better and had a great visit with family.

Too funny about the Bird Stamp - I will definitely take you up on that. Stamps seem to be the latest obsession in my house for some reason....

Yes, Hobby Lobby has been putting full page ads in newspapers on Christmas and Easter since 1997, which is awesome. Not to mention they are only one of a very few businesses that do not open on Sunday.

Hope you continue on the "upswing"
and I'll talk to you soon!!!

so much

Where Do I begin again? I. Have. No. Ideal. I'm going to hit the ground running here and just say the past few years has held a great amount of change for my husband and I. We have lived new places made new friends and started over again. We are movers and shakers I guess. Not really just doing what we can to make life feel comfortable as possible. so lets get off and running, I haven't had a scrap space for almost a year, its been well over a year since I've used a cricut but not the gypsy. The cards most fast and quick and not picture worthy. As some things stay the same I'm still into clean lines its still a timeless favorite. So much of what you will see is rockin it old school or cute and quick and a few Pintrest inspirations. I'm a girl on the run so more quick than anything. For the first time in three years I plan not to travel for a few months and that makes crafting, blogging, and everything else less complicated and room for relaxation and fun. Enjoy the…


Ahh so I know no updates of late. A most lazy poster am I. I ve been not liking the current upload system for my pictures so that why I don't post often. Life is ok. We are still in Fort Worth. Traffic boggles my imagination daily I spend about an hour on the road everyday and its only 6 miles to hubby's work and back. Bright lights, big city, crappy traffic.

Do we like it? It's not the worst place we have lived. You'll find original Texans are friendly, problem is not many are around. Of course the possibility could be maybe I'm not that likable. I doubt I'll ever be able to answer that.

We have never bought a house for many reasons the main being ours in B.G. never sold. It sits after price reductions and after every real estate analysis you could think of. 30k plus under market value and yes I've had a recent estimate. The other is taxes. Taxes are about 6000 on a .25 acre lot here . so even if you buy a little house you have a horrid bill. In Arlington …

I want to live in Bexley

Of course you will not know this song however i must express myself

I want to live in Bexley
So I can drive a big car
I want to live in Bexley
So I can act like a big star

At least that's the way I remember the parody song in my head. This lovely song was composed by two male disk jockeys who hosted the pop music station in my home town. At the time Bexley was "the" place to live. So those who cant afford to live there naturally make fun of the people who do (do men really change as they grow older?) Today I was thinking about that song clipie and I went to Springhill Tn, drove through Franklin Tn, then we came to two little towns called Brentwood and Oak Hill. I must say I have seen some huge homes in my time I've been to parade homes worth millions and had more than 10,000 sq feet so yes I've seen big. However I have never seen a community of homes so big I would not be able to gander upon how big they were. Let my try to compare most of them, they made our old tow…
