Monday Files


Wow.  Guys, I do not know what my excuse is, but I seem to be on a sudden one post a week stint.  Those of you who like to read more stuff here, I hope that once school has started up and settled down, I’ll get back on more frequent writing. Those of you who […]

Theme Thursday: Google Image Search

Screen Shot 2014-08-21 at 12.39.28 PM

Y’all, I’m in the middle of a design project from hell.  Like, never ending, house trashed, wailing and gnashing of teeth type project. I blame Ken.  He saw it on Pinterest, which just proves my point that men should not be allowed Pinterest accounts.  No, I do not care that this is a sexist statement. […]

10 Things I Learned from Better Gardens Than Mine

(but not in that order) A couple weeks ago, I wrote briefly about how our tent had been condemned, and until another one dropped out of the sky, we were out of the camping action. Do you know what happened after that?  Do you?  I got an email from the sweetest woman in the world, […]

Theme Thursday/7QT Mashup
