Itchin' for Great Weather!"

So, our  high was in  the low 70's over the weekend.... Oh what a boo-tee-full day! Ohhhh it was nice and warm :) *siggghhhh*
Men had short sleeve shirts on... The women had skirts and boots rockin' it! Oh how I love thee... The weather made me smile.. even though I was at work most of Sat... I can't wait for SUmmer!! I'll go ahead and take Spring first..

But since it was beautiful out we went to the track.. And so did most of Hot Springs... It was packed! The horses give me chill bumps.. Very gorgeous animals :)
See the starting gate behind us? I begged him to stand in the sun and not in the shaded bleachers... or stand inside..

Well, the weather teased us tremendously  and now back to cold weather again.. Make the most of your cold day! :)

"Sew Crazy!"

Okay, when it comes to gift giving... My Mr. ROCKS!!!
He got me into scrapbooking... And all these different crafts... He's WONderFul!!!
Sew..(get it?) for Christmas... He presented me with an Embroidery Machine! AWWWW!!! I love it! However... he's been playing with it sooo much.. I don't have a turn yet.. {anything mechanical... he's on it!} He made me several things... I love this!! More ideas for gifts... {If I remember to send them..} He's made: *scrap towels for my craft room with a cute design on them *our bath towels have our initials on them....{love it} *cute decorated covers to cover my machines in my craft room *cute owls on my pullovers..

"Craft Room Pics...."

This where I love to go and just CREATE... *sigh*
The sweet Mr. worked very hard on this room for me... We are not done yet, however it's at a point where I can go and still play. He purchased a flat screen little TV for my room, so I can watch my Crime shows as I scrapbook!

Not sure if you can see it... but the little shelf with the lil' rubber stamps on them... it's actually a drawer from a  Flea market.. They wanted $30.00 for this! It's awesome and nostalgic...but a little spendy.. But I looks very nice in the room... Love me some Flea Markets Though!!
I will post the crafts that were made in here... :)
Have a wonderful and Creative day..

"Wine anyone?"

The Mr. and I are not 'drinkers' at all. more like,  'social' drinkers. I have to ask him what I like... That's how much we drink. Once in a while a beer or something... But if we are at a gathering or something... and I hear, "would you like a drink?" It sounds classy in a weird way... {BUT always decline b/c we are driving...scared of the little blue men with red & blue lights. They are scary} reminds me of soap operas or some kind of movie I watched. Where they go to the liquor cabinet and get a drink. I always watch them make something and think?.. How do they know what to carry?
So, when moving here to Arkansas we've had a few gatherings with people who have a bar in their home and it's so neat looking. So, I saw this "Birdcage Wine Rack" and freaked! How perfect! The Mr. just looked at me... "We don't drink, let alone enough to have a wine rack in our home" Me: pleading and cupping my hands together... "PPPPLLLLLEEEAAAASSSEEEEE…

"We Run With Scissors!"

I had the Wonderful Pleasure to spend A whole weekend... {last weekend that is..} SCRAPBOOKING! surprised? We stayed at a cute place on the lake. In a cute lil' cabin.... very nice... :)
The Snow was special ordered for our Retreat :)
Where we stayed...
The beautiful View from the back deck... *sigh*
Here they Are!! Ta! Da!!! The Ladies! Wonderful-Special-Sweet group of Ladies! :) Brenda said it the best. When her family surprised her for her Birthday and showed up with balloons in all... she was so excited when introducing her family life to her Scrapbook life. She said, "I want you to meet the Ladies. These Ladies understand me!" Very well put.
Our group was a large group.. so we had two cabins with a joining room. We just opened the door and we can talk YELL  to one another! Good times :)
Nothing like a "good morning" pic....

Our lil' souvenir T-Shirts to go along with the Retreat! :)

"Let It Snow!"

Side note: The UPS man from the prev post... Well, we weren't expecting anything. It was for  the neighbors next door....booo... However, I love goodies from the "Brown Man".

However! Ta! Da! These are some pics from our first snow here in Arkansas. In our backyard. 6 inches. In 1 day. The Mr. was like a little kid. He exhausted me! Running window to window, having every weather report on. On every TV in the house. I even bought him a weather station for Christmas... Perfect Gift for him. But , he gave a play by play for every snowflake that dropped. Literally. He was in-out, in-out alllll day! It fell on a Sunday, and stopped the whole town on Monday morning! I was scheduled to work and NOOOO phone call from our manager... from anyone if we were closed... could not get a hold of anyone who knew anything... So I beeeeegggggeeeeddd the Mr. to drive me to work Monday morning, to at least take care of the animals. {our kennel person was unable to make it to work the prev. day} Not hearing a I h…

"Me? Watch too much Crime shows?Naaaaa!"

Well, it's no secret in our little household my fav thing to watch  {and always have going on in the background}  if I'm just too busy to watch TV. Reality Crime Shows. Murder Mysteries That are real Life! I'm talking about the wife was killed by her husband and the whole time your yelling at the TV. "I know you did it Mr!" or "Eww....Oh I bet it was the mailman who did it.. or "Yip. He did it for the insurance money!"
Well, the Mr. says I watch soooo many of them that he never worries about me, because I'm constantly referring to an episode I've watched recently. I don't trust repairman coming to our house especially if  I'm home alone. I tell'em my dog bites and please don't pet her. I never say her name around them. {she will turn to Jell-O}
Well! So, last week I was home alone on my day off. Doing laundry, packing for my Scrapbook Retreat, la-la-la. So, about 10:30 the door bell rang. I was just about to jump into the shower. I FROZE! {I was …

"Okay....A little behind..."

Really.... this pic has nothing to do with anything... Just something to put here....
But I had to take a break from Blogging and realize why I do this? WHO do  I do this for? ME? To Gain followers?
My Biggest Fan was my Dear Father... I guess,  this was a way for him and I to reconnect.... For him to get to know ME. But I now miss him more than ever. I still keep his cell phone number in my phone. Not ready to 'delete the contact' just yet. He's still one of my friends on my FaceBook Page. Whenever I come across either one. All I think about  is: "God,I miss you and would really like to talk to you right now"
I will revamp my Blog Page  and do this for my sweet Family and Friends back home. And to some of my Sweet followers here on Blogspot... You'll have to please excuse me... I had NO idea people even still read my blog,  Til I got messages! Thank you!! My un-loyal followers dropped me,  and now I have less followers {OUCH!} But I know who my  TRUE  friends are.
Life just gets gets aw…
