One week

One week from today is Christmas eve. Man That time has simply flown by from Thanksgiving to now it feels like it was last weekend. I have very few to buy for this year seeing that the budget will be tight. Just a few things and a stuffed reindeer for Clipie will finish things up. I'll explain about the toy later when time is is not like an empty bottle. I hope to be done by the end of the week so I wont spend much time shopping on the most crazy Saturday this year.

I really, really, really, had a great time this weekend, it was very fun very. I needed the break and have y'all to thank for it. And with that I'd like to thank everyone for the extra goodies and gifts. The cookies were fabulous (now gone after my elf dived into them)I must say we are all very good cooks. The pages are spectacular! I'm not sure what to store them in but its not going to fit in our old album, I may need want a new album. Do y'all think we might do this again? Give me some ideals on why y'all are going to do with yours.

Also I'd like y'all to remember one another this holiday season. Some of us are going through very difficult times, I think we all could use an extra prayer in our lives. Blessings A

I had a vacation day yesterday and spent the day shopping with Jackie. She did most of the buying, she needed some clothes and stuff for work. I picked up a few last minute items, nothing big, my shopping is done. Just waiting on one package from Amazon and one from Barnes and Noble, don't care if they come before Christmas or not.

Also loved the weekend together and all the goodies. I put my pages in a hand made album by themselves. I might move them again, but for now the are good right there, I kind of like them by themselves. I have been recipe swapping for several years, so I have quite a few albums of varying sizes!

Thanks for reminding us to keep each other in our prayers and thoughts this holiday. The economy stinks and we are all effected in one way or another. I received devastating news earlier in the week from work, my health care out of pocket is doubling, almost $12,000/ year for health care in 2009. We have to make some drastic changes. Luckily I have all of you to "play" with at little or no cost, and luckily I have enough scrap stuff to last me a life time!

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…
