The best Open House in TEXAS

The best in the whole state?  Okay, maybe I'm speaking things into existence with that comment but this is only the first of many new ideas we have for my husband's real estate business.

A little about the party leading

My Dance

Last night as I joyfully whirled around my house accomplishing menial tasks I was reminded of a dance.  Ballroom? not so sophisticated... Salsa?.... not so booty oriented. Two-Step?.... not so country.  Then what kind of dance was I thinking of?

time, ideas & encouragement for all:)

The past 5 days have been a whirlwind of motion for my life. During this time I've run into so many things I want to share yet where do I find the time? Truth is, there just hasn't been. For example, last night I had to get Marc's office painted and dry before movers arrived at 8am. I got home at 2am...just a little example of how busy it's been since last Wednesday.  (I will soon have pictures of before & after of the new office but right now we're mid project & it looks TERRIBLE).

I'm not even quite sure what this post will be as I sit for a brief collect-my-thoughts moment in Starbucks feeling as though I may collapse in a flood of emotions and

abundant RAIN blessings

praying for provision....abundance....rain
When you dig into the word of God to see what He says about your situation this is what can happen.

Without going into detail about what I'm believing God for I'll tell you this cute little story.

Excuse my absence yesterday and my short n sweet post here now.  If you read the last post about the party we're preparing for on Saturday then you understand.

Bee Box & another confession...is this getting old?

Confession....yet again!  

All that talk about my 6 am appointment with God before the kids get up and I failed.  I was told 3 different alarms went off ...I only heard one & it didn't do its job.  I must need a volume adjustment or some self-control lessons.  I nearly skipped my nightly post but thought I'd share one more little project with you.

A "Bee Box" just for those little bits that clutter your dresser or for your hair pins in the bathroom.  Hope you like the newest addition to my portfolio of transformation creations:)  It'll be for sale this weekend at my husband's big open house for his Elliott Ranch listing--a champagne shopping extravaganza--fun!!!!

Order & Balance...get some

As I observe my world speeding up quite a bit I almost feel as if I’ve been lazy the past couple of months...hmmm....how can that be?  I only thought I was busy before but now the real work lies ahead.  That leads me to my newest project as well as the one thing I've never really mastered

Time Management 

I encourage you to plan out your week before

stand tall & don't worry

something I made last year that I never shared...until now.  Philippians4:6-7 says it all!!!! 
 My defense mechanism when I’m going through something is to pull away, run away & retreat.   Run away mode has been in full effect so I’m here to apologize.   For me running away has always

recreating an heirloom

How was your 4th of July celebration?  We had a grand time at my friend's pool party...what a great group of friends we're blessed with!  I failed to take my camera, or even my purse, along for the ride so I'm going to post about something quite random.

Nearly 10 months ago my Aunt Sunday asked me to

Happy Freedom & Independence Day!!!

I had this big long post ready for tonight but I scrapped it for this. (you realize I type these up the night (or early morning) before I post at 8am:) 

In celebration of the 4th of July my cousin, Natalie, (who’s in town for a couple weeks) and I decided to make some special cupcakes for the pool party we’re attending tomorrow.  We signed up to bring watermelon but to be quite honest we spent most of the evening devouring one of the 2 we bought for the occasion. 


at 7pm Plan B was in full force.

We made simple chocolate mini-cupcakes with vanilla icingboring, right!  For added pizazz we topped them off with sliced strawberries & a blue berry.  

Admitting this to you is a bit tough...I use box mixes sometimes.  We decided to cheat a bit since it was a bit late when we started and the grocery store

Guest Post :: My Cup

This is written by my good friend since college, Kim.  She and I have some wacky stories to tell and she is to this day the silliest person (other than myself) I have ever met.  An innocent, loving silliness that marks her in my heart forever.  These are her words and her pictures.  Please welcome her with love and sweet comments so she'll come back again.

"To sum it up, in my opinion, living decorated is living a loving life.   Spreading the love.   To spread the love, you must first be filled with love.   Sometimes I am, sometimes I am not.

confidence vs. pride

A conversation I had with someone Friday rocked me to the core.

This dear, loving person said (in a roundabout way) that I come across as "pretty full of myself most of the time".  OUCHIE!!!  Who wants to hear that?
