Friday's Letters

Don't forget about my giveaway! If you haven't entered, enter here


Dear Coffee Mug Swap,

I am SO excited about you. I can't wait to get my mug pal, stalk their blog, shop for a mug, and send it.  Hurray!

Dear unreasonably stubborn man who I call Dad,

Perhaps it is not such a good idea to use a chainsaw in the dark.  Or after a drink.  Or after both.  Shame on you.  Practice what you preach, sir.  Also, if you cut yourself with a chainsaw, no matter how insignificant you think it is, you should go to the hospital for stitches and not your bathroom for peroxide and band aids. 

Dear Hennessy and Bella,

Thank you for becoming good friends in less than a week.  I don't know how long I would have been able to tolerate the "who is going to be the dominate dog" dance you two were doing.  

Dear finals week,

Bring it.

Happy Day

I'm going to be an auntie again!  YAY! 

 Remember when I told you about my brother's girlfriend?  The one who was in the bad accident?   She found out she was pregnant while in the hospital!   God was watching over her and her baby because he's doing fantastic!  

Landen Thomas will be here in September!  I'm so excited!

Love Shack Update

It feels like we're getting no where fast with our little love shack.  Ugh..

Hennessy was determined to stay in the picture

My fridge and washing machine are currently hanging out in the living room.  So are boxes for kitchen things (because we tore out the kitchen cabinets), and bathroom things, and "I don't know what to do with this" things.  The tarp is my feeble attempt to keep the renovation dust from the kitchen off of the carpet. We've been hanging out in our bedroom...a lot.

The bad news...
I have a great distaste for the guy that my grandparents rented this house to before us.  

Hubby found a leak behind the bathtub.  He says it's been leaking for a long time. 

 My dad was under the house yesterday to check on a few beams that he thought needed to be replaced and to jack up a few that were settling.  What he found was a lot of rotten wood under the bathroom.  

The guy that lived here before us knew about the leak and didn't say a word and now we're left with rotten floors that need replacing.  Oh, and a floor that is sinking in the kitchen.

The good news..
We were already going to replace the kitchen floor so that's not going to be a big task to fix.  

I talked to my Grandma yesterday and we're getting a new bathroom! WOO!  She's taking me on Thursday to pick out a new tub :)  Goodbye purple tub!   

I'm going to wait to show you before pictures until after I have an after.  The bathroom is CRAZY messed up right now.  We're talking wood, dirt, screws, tools, and torn down wall paper EVERYWHERE!

Don't forget!
 Thursday is giveaway day!

Friday's Letters


Dear Bella,

I am sorry you that you had a family that didn't want you any more.  I'm sorry that they would rather have you put down.  I'm sorry that you've been tied up, not fed enough, and didn't have a name.  I hope you enjoy the warm bed we have for you.  Once we know you won't roam the house and chew things when we're sleeping, we will let you sleep on the bed with us (plus, you need a bath first!)  I hope you like your new name and all the treats, love, and affection we will give you.  I hope you love being a part of our family.

Dear Hennessy,

I'm sorry that we brought a stranger into your life.  She didn't have a good home and we thought that maybe you'd like to share yours.  Also, we wanted you to have a playmate.  Don't worry, we still love you very much.  I hope you love your new sister.

Future Giveaway

I have decided to have a GIVEAWAY!! 

Who doesn't like those?  

I'm thinking that I will have it when I reach 25 fantastic readers or next Thursday. 

Which ever comes first.

*dance here* 


Also---The Accused has now become The Guilty. 

I caught her in the act today.

I was sitting on the living room floor talking on the phone.  She was walking in circles around me and whining. 

And then...

She snatched my flippy flop and bolted for the back door (it was open because it was nice out). 

Her punishment = no sleeping on the bed with Mom and Dad. It probably won't last till bed time.  Hubby will ask why I told her no and the he'll laugh when I tell him why. 

He laughs because it's only my shoes that she does this.  Never his.  

(...jerk... )

The Accused

The Accused

For the possible snatching and most likely burial of my super comfy slippers.

I won't be able to go to Wal-Mart until I get a new pair:(

I'm going to get weird looks if I go in with my pajamas and normal shoes.

People are going to ask, "Where are your house shoes?  Don't you know that's the proper attire for Wal-Mart?'

And I'll be all "My dog ate buried them."

Then the confused looks will commence.


My life might possibly be over.

Have no fear! I am still here!!

It feels like FOREVER since I last blogged, doesn't it?  I've been so busy painting, moving, studying blah blah blah that I have completely neglected my poor little blog.  Not having internet at the love shack until a few days ago didn't help, either.

Let's catch up, shall we?

We're getting into the big stuff as far as fixing the love shack goes.  I am getting excited!  Hopefully this week we'll be putting up the last bit of drywall and painting.  Maybe even hanging the kitchen cabinets!  I can't wait until it's complete and we can sit back and relax.  We've already planned our first meal! Well, Hubby planned it and I'll cook it. HAHA!

Things are changing around here!  I've brightened it up a tad.  Good? Bad? No words?

I'm keeping my sponsors up for an additional month.  I want to proclaim my love for all of them but only did half last month :(  So, I will make up for it this month!  HOORAY!

I have no button....I'm working on this situation and will scream for help when I get frustrated.  Thanks in advance.

For today I am going to leave you with this gem.  I was so stoked when I saw it in the bathroom stall at school that I completely forgot why I was there and dug out my camera.  It made my day!

I posted the first stickie with the quote in black crayon and two people responded to it!  Someone wrote in pencil "Life throws curve balls all the time."  And someone else added the sticky written in blue highlighter.  It was there for almost two weeks!  SO FREAKING AWESOME!
