I Just Want To Feel Better!

This was my Sunday and Monday...

And, this is my today...

I was hoping a trip to the doctor would not be necessary, but it feels as if it's settling in my chest. Yuck.

On a brighter note, I had some pink happiness!!!! I won a pink crystal bracelet from my friend Cindy Adkins at Cindy Adkins' Whimsical Musings and then a surprise gift from my friend Linda at Itsy Bits and Pieces arrived in the mail. I LOVE my blog friends!!! Thanks for making my week!!!!

A Grand Business Venture!!

Since I have found myself without full-time employment, I am spending time completing my recent move and thinking (hard) about what I want to be when I grow up. ;)

I keep coming back to the idea of working for myself. I still have insurance for the rest of the year, so I feel that I have a little time to play with. I am still exploring options, but one of the things I am going to do is sign up with Just Jewelry. It is a Christian based company whose motto is "Who You Are Is More Important Than What You Wear".

Please contact me if you want to order or hold an open house.

browsing on etsy and found the cutest things!

My favorite is this super sweet dress from Bellini Bridal... ( same as above)


Love this necklace from Ionas Closet!


Had a few more in mind, but I have to go pick up a sick kid at school...
Have a beautiful pink afternoon!!!

Oh Happy Day!!!!

I started my day smiling.
And kept smiling...

I spent my evening blissfully happy, still smiling...

I'll Fly Away

Alison Krauss-Gillian Welch - I'll Fly Away

I LOVE this song! I'm being baptized in the morning and I'm so excited that I know I won't be able to sleep.

I've found a wonderful church home and my church family is amazing! My experience has truly been life-altering.

A Little Bit About My Day

So, I got up this morning, (and I am NOT a morning person) expecting
my work day to look something like this...

Instead, I started off my day at home, looking a little something like this.

That's right. The toilet won't flush, and the tub won't drain. And given my past
experience, this can only mean one thing. Someone is going to have to rent a roto-rooter and clean out the drain in the side yard... JOY!

I don't usually sleep well at night and today I may have been doing some of the above.

Although I love my new business, I was way too tired to tan anyone this evening.

I really needed to be working on that huge stack of dishes made worse by my
delicious cooking tonight.

Did I get to create anything today? Ummmm... no.

If you need me, I'll be making like the gal below.

A Tribute To The World's Greatest Mom

You never said "I'm leaving"

You never said goodbye

You were gone before I knew it,

And only God knew why

A million times I needed you,

A million times I cried

If Love alone could have saved you,

You never would have died

In Life I loved you dearly,

In death I love you still

In my heart you hold a place,

That no one could ever fill

It broke my heart to lose you,

But you didn't go alone

For part of me went with you,

The day God took you home.

Four long years and I miss you more each day. I am so blessed to have belonged to you. I've always been and will remain so very proud of you. So many things you taught me, even those lessons that I pretended to ignore. Every day I strive to be the kind of mother to my daughter that you were to me. Thank you so much for the gifts you gave. I love you Mom.
