Recap Part 3

While out thrifting the 99 cent day at Goodwill, you see a lot of cute things. If I was a size 2 or a petite, I could be a well dressed person!! But I am not.

One day, I saw the cutest paisley pleated skirt in every Tennesseans favorite color - Orange! I was ecstatic to see that it was new with tags and it was MY size!! Woo Hoo! I really felt like I won the lottery! Super cute, new with tags and MY size! I snatched it up quick!! What do you think?

I did manage to find the perfect orange sweater to go with it. Unfortunately, it wasn't on the 99 cent rack. I had to pay $2.98 for the cashmere sweater.

I love this outfit! It is so comfortable and cute!

Be back soon!

Recap Part 2

Jessie made some angel tree toppers out of those badminton birdies. Aren't they adorable?

I told Julie about Martha Stewart's tissue paper pom poms. Thinking she may want them for wedding decor. She tested them out in red and green Christmas tissue paper.

They turned out great and they were simple to make! I think they are a keeper for wedding decor! Just not in red and green.

Jessie and our granddaughter Katie made the BEST chocolate chip cookies ever!!

and they used my does that work??? Mine never tasted that good. Reminds me of when I was growing up. My sister Tami's chocolate chip cookies always tasted better than mine. Must be the technique. I just don't have the magic touch for chocolate chip cookies!

Be back soon!

Recap Part 1

Recapping things that happened while I was gone (from the blog). Jessie finally learned to french braid hair.

She actually managed to do her own hair here. It took watching U Tube over and over again, but she finally managed to do it! Yeah Jessie! I can't even do that!

Since she was successful with that, she learned to do the fishtail(?) U Tube to the rescue again! (What did we ever do without U Tube?)

Here is my hair, with Jessie's talent, sporting the Fishtail! Pretty cute! I did add a ribbon to cover up that big black hair band at the base of my head.

Be back soon!

She's Back and I'm Back

I have been gone for a while due to the fact, my computer died. My computer usually sits on my messy kitchen table. When my computer died, we confiscated Jessie's laptop for the kitchen table, but it just never felt right to me. I would use it sometimes, but just for things like checking ebay or my email.

But thanks to our Genius son-in-law Chris and $20.00 I have my computer back! So now I feel like posting again!

Isn't she pretty! And Yep the table is still a mess!

Important stuff has been going on around here while I have been gone! Son #2 got engaged to Julie the day after Thanksgiving! Yeah!!!

Here will be the blended family!

Aren't they cute!!! Can't wait for the wedding, October 8, 2011!

Be back soon! (I'll probably be recapping things that happened around here)
