Craft/Antique Store Goodness

I just had to share with you a few pictures of some of the goodies that we saw at one of the local craft/antique stores.

It was super hard, but I was a good girl and only purchased two things....

I've been looking for a tray to make over for some time! I finally found it! (Sorry for the bad picture)
There was sooooo much more that I wanted...

Crafty Easter Goodies

Easter is one of my favorite holidays! I just love all of the pastel colors and who doesn't love a Cadbury Creme Egg... or two... or more.

But, since I don't have a creme egg... yet... I decided to browse the amazing web and find a few Easter goodies that you can craft up for yourself and/or as gifts.

Loving these Patterned Easter Eggs from Urban Comfort!

Texas Weather and Another Sneak Peak

With the craziness going on last night that we call Spring weather in Texas, I was able to paint for a couple of hours then head outside to check out the nasty weather that was moving in.

I think that was the longest sentence...evah!

Of course, being the awesome blogger that I am... totally forgot to take pictures. Ugh...

School was delayed for two hours this morning because of the flooded streets and such. Yep, it got a bit scary and I got next to no sleep last night....

I Can't Belive This Happened Again...I'm in Shock!

Warning: Picture heavy!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the guy that ran his "friends"/"family members" truck through my parents fence....slammed into their tree... plowed into my Dad's truck... pushed his truck into my Mom's and took paint chips out of Dad's Vette with flying debris.

There's nothing like getting a call at 2:30 in the morning from my mother telling me she is staring at the truck that destroyed their fence....again... for the 3rd time. Not the same truck.... three different trucks. And damaged another vehicle...this time three!

After my Dad checked on the guy to make sure that he was okay, he ran... Really?! Again?! What the hell is wrong with people?!

So, I spent the morning, of my 15 year anniversary, helping my mom clean up the mess that this jerk left behind.

Happy Anniversary, Babe!

Here's the pics for ya! Sorry about the bad night pics...

Functional Friday Linky Party #23

Since I totally messed up last week and my brain is still a bit wonky... I wanted to get this weeks party up way earlier!

Plus!!!!!

I'm super excited to announce what I have been working on. It's a really big deal for me.

I'm not quite finished, but I'm tweaking a few things and hope to get everything together within the next couple of weeks.

I've always wanted to open up my very own Etsy shop! I'm finally going to!

I'm so excited!

Here's a sneak peak...

Spring Break Madness

Okay... not madness, but definitely busy-ness!

I've been hearing "Mom, I'm bored!" since Saturday.

We've been watching movies... Dolphin Tale is a great movie and I so cried!

Played Just Dance 3... my back still hurts, but Mom got her groove on. Well... at least in my mind.

We made another trip to Michaels and Hobby Lobby to give them one more shot at having what I need in stock. Since it's been a week and all... Nope.  Ugh... on to my next option.

10 Things That Cause Stress

I came across an article titled 10 Secret Stressors. I know that much of my worrying and anxiety comes from stress.

These are the 10 they listed with a bit of my opinion/input on each one.

1. Your Doctor. "Many women may find that certain doctors' interpersonal skills and lack of "bedside manner" can leave them feeling agitated and anxious." I totally agree. I know that if I don't feel comfortable with a doctor and I have an appointment that doesn't 'go so well' it can mess up my entire day.

2. Your Coworkers. "You spend the most time with your professional peers-and it may be that your stress at the office is more about your coworkers than your boss." Absolutely! Years ago, at one job in particular, it was horrible working with some of the ladies. The gossip... snootiness... drama and talking behind others backs... made it feel like high school all over again.

I Had A Brain Fart...

I totally forgot about Functional Friday. I've had my head buried in other projects and completely had a brain fart.

I'm so very sorry!

So, this week there will not be a link party.

Hopefully next week I'll remember to post it....

Geez....

Just Keep Crafting... Just Keep Crafting...

I've been attacking my never ending chore list and coming up with ideas for my.... ideas.

Yesterday, I drug my poor husband to Hobby Lobby and Michael's. I try to get him out of the house from time to time...just to get him moving around a bit more. He had to listen to my complaints, whining and ughhhhsss the entire time. I <3 him!


I went to Hobby Lobby first... hoping to find all the things I need and I have to say I was very disappointed in their selection of craft paint. Their paint section (if you can call it that anymore) didn't have all the colors I was looking for and their wood section didn't have hardly any pieces on the shelves.

The Doctor's Report Is In

And I'm totally freaking out... again. Well, Friday I freaked out. Today... a bit better. I swear... I'm going to have a head full of grey before I turn 37!

Friday was the day that the hubster went to the doctor to find out his test results from Wednesday. His mother drove him there and back since I had to take care of the kiddos. I'm very thankful that she is able to do that, but I wanted to be there so badly. Since most of his appointments are in the afternoon about the time they get out of school and his appointments have been two hours away... I can't go. The kids can't miss school. My son has already missed too many days.

The hubster called me to let me know they were on their way home and I could tell in his voice that something was wrong.

One of Those Mornings...

Not necessarily a bad morning... more of a really?!... morning...

We went to bed early last night. Well, 10:30. That's early for us. I'm so proud of myself! I only hit the snooze button twice this morning!

Got the kiddos up so they could get ready for school.

I told the kids to just have breakfast at home today instead of school...

Me: "We have cereal."

Kiddos: "I don't want cereal."... in their whiny voice.

Me: "Okay, you can eat breakfast at school, but we have to leave in 10 minutes."

I proceed to go brush my teeth while the kiddos finish putting their shoes on.

As I'm brushing my teeth I look behind me in the mirror and see my son walking up and down the hallway while balancing a pillow on his head.

Really?!

So, I have to stop brushing my teeth to kindly... yet with a firm voice... remind him to brush his teeth and fix his hair and to quit playing around. We.have.to.go!

Of course, we didn't leave in 10 minutes.

Is it a boy thing?!

I don't ever have to get onto my daughter about getting ready for school. She does everything that needs to be done and is ready to go.

My son... on the other hand...

He fiddle farts around each and every morning!

Really?!
