Feeling Nostalgic

Mainly because I haven't posted in almost a year. Lazy, I know, but what are you going to do? Here are the kids! I know you want to see them, you didn't miss me!! :P

(snuck one in of my hubby!)


Happy New Year!

Hello everyone! Just stopping by to say hello and I hope that everyone had a great holiday. Hugs!!


Oh, who am I kidding?

I truly don't have time to blog right now. There is so much going on and I just don't spend that much time on the computer anymore. Sure, I have some friends I chat with on Facebook, but I no longer feel the need to blog about all my doings. I guess I'm just going to call it a day for now. Maybe I'll come back, but I don't know.

Thanks for all the love and support and friendship I've garnered from this endeavor. I wish you luck and love in all you do.

Hugs N Luv,


Closed, for now

I closed my Etsy shop for the time being, but don't worry, I have some new things coming back real soon. I will tell you, there won't be jewelry for a little while. I just don't have the time to invest, so I'm putting some other items in that I do have time for. Hope you all like it.

The big Grand Opening for my physical store will be this Friday, so don't expect too much this week. Oh, let's face it, I barely have time to blog at all anymore! I'll try to do better. HUGS and LOVE and I will chat with you all soon!!!



Such a silly pair, these two! I wish I had more time to write, but I have been so busy. We moved the store so that has taken up a good chunk of my time. I've had lots of other stuff going on and I will write more when I can! LOVES!!


Would you like to know what I've been doing?

For one thing, we are moving the store to a new location. It's scary, it's big and it's going to be COMPLETELY AWESOME!! I'm really excited but there is a lot of work that has gone into this and there is still more to come. I went on a buying trip this weekend and bought more frames than I intended but I think it will work out.

Miss Pinks gets out of school this week. I cannot believe she is already done with the second grade. Where does all this time go? Before I know it, she'll be dating and driving and going to college. OH, I better just stop. She is just so amazing and I am so proud of her, every day. You know, she only missed two days of school this year and that was just because I was having her baby brother! She likes school and we are going to miss her teachers! MAN, did we get lucky with some fabulous teachers.

In other news, I joined Weight Watchers in January. Having Mr. Man really did a number on me and I've needed to lose weight, but I put it off for one dumb reason or another. I didn't have much of a choice though, my blood pressure was high, my joints hurt all the time and I needed to lose the weight to be healthy, not thin. So far, I have lost 26 pounds!! WOO! I am very proud of myself. Here is what I look like less the 26 pounds:

It's actually been pretty easy to do. I also got new glasses and I must admit that they make me feel very sexy! I just had my birthday so now I'm 33 and I'm working on being more fit for me and my family.

That's really about it. I've been super busy with the store change over, but it's going to be good. More space, more stuff and just plain "more" of everything. I even get to have an office at the new store! Impressive, huh?

Well, I am up way past my bedtime and Mr. Man will be waking me up at 6:00, so I should go. I hope everyone is doing well. I miss blogging and I miss getting to find out what is going on in the world. Maybe one day my life will slow down enough for me to do more on the internets.

My love to you all!


Baby Face!

I know it's been forever since I posted but I am SO busy! I figured if I posted pictures of the cute baby, all would be forgiven. Right?


It's been a month? What? NO! you've got to be kidding me!

Well, I guess it really has. I've just been so swamped with work and family that I barely spend any time on the computer. Even now, I've got to go get Miss Pinks in the bed. I'm posting a pic for you guys since, believe it or not, Mr. Man is already 6 months old! Holy Crapola! He's getting so big and is doing more and more every day. Amazing little bugger. Well, he's not really little. He wears 18 months and up, but it isn't all pudge! He's LOOOONG! Big baby! LOVE HIM TO PIECES!!

Here is one of his Sissy feeding him imaginary food:

It was really sweet! He loves her so much.

I've got lots going on and a sleepy little girl that just fussed at me for not tucking her in, so I better go. I hope all is well out in the world. Hugs, love and all that jazz...



My Esty Shop

I neglect it all the time. I'm thinking I may close it and sell off all my beads. With the business, 2 kids and a house to run, I don't have time to think straight. I'll let you guys know if I have a big blowout sale and reduce everything.

Other than that, I'm busier than a one legged man in a butt kicking contest. Yeah, I wrote that, no, I don't really feel that bad about it.

THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY! Hope you all have a great one!


OH! What pretty kids I have!

(don't you just want to eat those cheeks!)

(she's growing up so fast!)

My beautiful darlings!
