Well, I've done it again. I made the HR Look Alike Wall of Fame yesterday. Myself and Katelyn (a friend at work) dressed exactly alike. If this happens to anyone, your pic is taken and it goes on the Wall of Fame. Just some good ole' office fun. Neither of us had ever seen the other wear these. Too funny!!!!

I just realized that drop off for the Fall 2010 consignment sale is July 31st. First of all, I’m going to be on vacation that day. Grrr!!! Second, I have a boat load of things to do leading up to vacation.
Somehow, no matter what I do… this is my life. ALWAYS… ALWAYS… ALWAYS chasing my tail to keep up.
Things to do:
- Final touches on Kenzie’s 3rd birthday invitations, print, assemble and mail
- Assist Ethan with Thank You Notes for his 10th birthday
- Back to School Shopping for uniforms and supplies
- Wash, Pack and get ready for vacation
- Visit my hair stylist
….and now... iron, hang, tag and coordinate all the Fall clothing/shoes that is to be sold. Yikers!!!
Oh yeah, did I mention lose 10-15lbs before July 31st? Ahhh!!! Stressing a bit, but all is well I suppose. It always works out….right???

Feeling a lil' crafty lately.
Can't you tell?!!
I saw this oversized letter at a local craft store for $8 and thought I would experiment with it. What can I mess up for $8, ya know?
So, I painted and sanded and now I have a new addition to our home office. We'll see if it sticks around.
Ok, my mission continues to declutter my house.
Every drawer, every closet... EVERYTHING!!!
It's theraputic for me to feel clean and know everything has a place. A constant battle in my home with two children and a spouse that do NOT share the same enthusiasm for organization as I.
I've come a long way, but there are still items junking up my closets. I've been purging like a mad woman.
During this adventure, I'm finding plenty to get rid of, but in the midst of the clutter chaos there are a few jewels. Yes, these picture frames had been retired to a closet because they are brassy and dated. However, I LOVE their details and decided they just needed a lil' TLC and maybe some paint.
Before... brassy and really gold
Amazing what a lil' paint will do, but still not satisfied with flat white
... needs a lil' texture. So, I knocked a lil' of the point off of the edges and detailed areas with sandpaper
... and I'm pretty satisfied with the end result!!!
Now for their purpose... I'm still not certain which pics will find their way to display.
Heres to repurposing funky junk!!!

Ok, so I'm gearing up for another birthday party. This time for my sweet lil' Kenzie's 3rd birthday. Can't wait to work on it. I got many ideas from The Tom Kat Studio. I'm making everything myself... so it should be fun!!! Well, I may buy a few things. :-)
I'm feeling a lil' bit of anxiety, because I'm really busy at work and really busy at home and this birthday will hit right after vacation and right before back to school. So, I must get organized to pull this thing off.
I'm making my list and checking it twice.
Have I mentioned I'm a list girl!!!
White Betty Crocker Cake Mix - $3
White Cream Cheese Icing - $2
3 drops of red food coloring for a lil' girl that thinks it's a pink cupcake kinda night....
Take a look at Kenzie finishing off the pink batter with a very large mixing spoon. Sweet as icing!!!

Yes, Kenzie Grace's nap time is a great time to get those lil' 30 minute projects completed around the house. I purchased these several years ago and recently they were in the line of fire during an indoor game of dodge ball between the two guys in my life. Grrrr!!!! So, with new styrofoam rings, stuffing, green moss, new bases, hot glue and a lil' TLC these guys are looking as good as new. Thank goodness I could save them. :-)
Have I mentioned that I LOVE TOPIARIES?!!!
Yes, that is the fabric for my window treatments STILL hanging over the nook chair. I need more than 30 minutes for that one and a sewing machine. :-)

Here are a few pics from Nannie Trudy's phone from Disney. They have went to every amusement park in the land except Animal Kingdom. I'm sure Ethan is on top of the world being Ben's wing man. The pic on the right is of a gentlement that attends a church they visited on Sunday. He got them in one of the parks for free and gave them a park hopper which saved them lots of cash. Funny that E is so tiny and white and the gentlemen is so large and dark. Ha!!! Anyhoo...
Thanks to Papaw, Nannie, Ben and Ernzo for allowing E to share this special time with them for the summer. I'm sure he will remember it FOREVER!!!
