Mistreatments and other cheap ideas

My stalking other blogs is really starting to payoff! I LOVE this Site and she has totally inspired me to just throw caution to the wind and GO FOR IT......on a small budget of course! So I went to my local fabric bin(Wal-Mart) and got this gorgeous fabric for $5.98 and not only mistreated a window, but also covered this pitiful side table! BONUS!
Lamps are coming soon......

Pretty amazing huh? Although I will admit it took longer than some fellow bloggers have you to believe. They say minutes, I say 2 hours. But no sewing, only pins, tacks and some hot glue!
Close up of all the glory! Watch out- I am feeling like I can do anything now!

Happy Valentines Honey

I know, you are jealous about my awesome 90's hair. Try to get past it. This is me and my honey circa Valentines 1993. So cute, so funny!

This was a limo date night on Valentines many years ago. Yeah, Dana has always been too sweet, so thoughtful. HE is the best gift giver I have ever met. This year included flowers, and a great date with friends, great take out and a chick flick!

Seriously, he is the perfect man for me. He always says he loves me more and I get why he says that. He has a natural openess about him, a willingness to give 100%, while I tend to hold back, hold at arms length. He always has to make the first move, He ALWAYS says sorry first, he always forgives first. He is a nature giver, naturally thinks of others first.

My mom always said marry a man who loves you more. And I never got that. Why would you want to be with someone who loves you less? But I get it now. I love him 100% with all I have but his capacity to love is greater than mine. And I am thinkful he loves me still. And I continue to reach deeper within myself to deserve him and try to be more like him.
So thank you honey.
For loving me more.
And loving me still.

What Have We Been Up To?

I realize I have not been blogging and before you jump to conclusions like I am on a month long vacation, let me set you straight! I have been mainly living in this vehicle. I take people to school(4 x a day, twice this week, same school), seminary,drop them off at jobs, take them to wrestling practices(3 x a week), take them to soccer games(2 x a week), take snacks for soccer, doctor appointments, friends and anything that they think is necessary for their well being. All within a 5 mile radius, but still able to use up a 25 gallon tank in 8 days.
Here is some proof of the wrestling. Cole is picking up some awards, but I have to admit it is b/c their is no one or very few kids in his weight class every week.
But he doesn't know that. He just likes the prizes.Part of Chloe's JV team. She is loving playing on the school team and I know it is so fun.(Remember those days...)

And I might have been pressured to sign up for Facebook which has taken some time away from my precious blogs! But I will not be swayed, and I will to be true to my blog and all it's treasures I receive.
