If you are reading this post today….I’m here at Haven (the blogging conference).

If you are reading this post on Friday at 10:00 am….I’m about to speak.

{gulp}

I think I’m ready.

I mean….I have a kind of funny story to start off with and I brought the most amazing pair of earrings and I bought some new red lipstick and my toes are painted with the cutest pink polish.

Oh….and I figured out what I’m going to say about how to build your blog.

*sigh*

Now….if I could just get my knees to stop shaking….it just might work out.

I’ll keep you posted. :) Continue reading

We just got back from vacation yesterday.

Just our family….the entire first season of Duck Dynasty….and 900 miles of open road.

And somewhere around mile 726….my husband and I started talking about clever ideas to hide the flat screen television.

I told my husband that once on an old episode of Oprah…..she was on this over-the-top liquid diet and pulled in all that fat in a wagon into the studio and totally looked so amazing in these skin-tight blue jeans.

Sometime after that …..she gave a tour of her house.

And in her bedroom there was this cabinet when you pressed a button….the television slowly rose up from the center with a whirring sound that resembled an episode of the Jetson’s.

Seriously.Continue reading

Did you wonder what I found on the 400 mile yard sale?

It wasn’t deer antlers.

What do you write when you can’t think of anything to say about Easter table decorating?

Does this ever happen to anyone else?

You know all about tables and decorating and Easter and daffodils and moss.

*sigh*

You just don’t have the words.Continue reading

Who Wants to Be Perfect?

Who Wants to Be Perfect?

Pallet Table

I laugh sometimes when people ask me if my house is always clean.

Or if it always looks like it does in the pictures.

Or if it’s always perfect…..not a pillow or picture frame or dish out-of-place.

Ummmm…..negative.
