I think it's almost time to publish another year of my blog! My last book ended in June and it's almost May now! As of today it will cost $ 90.00 for the hardcover. I think my upcoming yard sale money I earn will go towards that!I love these books so much! They are our lives crammed into the pages. They would be one of the first things to grab in a fire. They are totally worth the $ too. I use sharedbook.com if anyone is thinking about publishing their blog. it is SOOO easy to use as well- if I can do it, anyone can! There are other options too that make them alot cheaper as well- softcover & black & white. There might be better websites and deals, but I've been happy with these guys and was really tired of searching for anything cheaper. Now, what color for the cover???

I am in love with my husbands deodorant, and I USE IT!!! Seriously, after days of the kids saying how great Trav's armpits smelled, I had to see what the fuss was all about. After putting my nose in his underarm one day, I came up for breath and exclaimed, "Wow, that does smell good!!!" Since then, I've been using it everyday!

I'm not one to quit, infact I'm fueled by someone telling me I can't do something- but this stupid thing wins today. At least for now. It looks awful and I know it, and apart of me just doesn't care which is bizarre though. I always care. I always want it perfect, but when it comes to my sewing, I'm also realistic and know that will never happen in a thousand years, so I guess I just surender and give in and know this is what we get!

I found this little beauty for $ 2.00 and knew the bears quickly had to go. After I've taken it apart and removed the ugly stickers I'm thinking this project isn't going to be a fun one either. I'm using fabric I already have although I've been super tempted to make another fabric run- but I can't. I have to stop buying fabric!!! Wish me luck on this one... I'm not very excited.

What is it with the dreams lately? Most of them make me laugh, but this one was a little troubling- for me. In real life, I am not a swear-er. I just don't swear. I don't even think naughty words in my mind when I am upset and the only time I ever do is like every other year when I'm really mad about something and my Mom convinces me to say it. I struggle with dam* and h*ll, even, but admit it has come out a few times in my life- just not very often. The dream: I was walking up to a group of older kids that were hudeled in a circle because I noticed Tristin was standing with them. As they kept walking, this big HUGE kid kept trying to squeeze Tristin out of the circle and it was really hurting his feelings, So I walked up and said, " Hey ******, knock it off!" ...and then I woke up. I've been really bothered by it all morning. I've repented, I promise, but now I have the darn word stuck in my head and I feel really guilty about it. I hope you're happy Mom, I finally swore, and it was a really bad one!

I was at a yard sale and picked up this HUGE book shelf for $ 7.00. I really debated because of the price, but I went ahead and grabbed it because the girl's books were buried in a huge basket and they never read any other stories except for the ones on top. I've seen all kinds of adorable book shelves for the wall on craft blogs that have looked pretty easy to make- I've just been tired, so I thought- sweet, and I wouldn't have to spend hours making one, totally worth $ 7.00! It was dark blue on the sides, so I quickly painted it all white to match the girl's room, and I must say I'm really glad I bought it. The girl's have been reading books like crazy, even more! Yeah, a point for Mom!
