I finished reading a book last night! The book was boring and not one that I can recommend. The story the book is based on is crazy fasinating though. It is a true story about a mother and daughter pair who walked across the country. Spokane to NYC in hopes of earning money to save the family farm. The woman were 2 weeks later then their planed arrival and so the sponsors would not front the money.

Trick or Treat!!

My little sister and her little family
 are adding a new little pumpkin
to their patch this Spring!
I am more then a little excited!

Pumpkin Head!

I am an ebb and flow kinda girl.
 Sometimes I am all about the blog
and some times not so much.

I saw Ms. Melissa make these (above) on TV the other day.
I feel the need to have a tiny pot belly stove near me at all times. I am cold!
I could eat at Fire House pizza everyday! I am sure of it!
I am solar powered.
I can make angel wings..and I can do it well!
I was a bunny for my token Halloween party. It was easy!
Say no to these protein bars! They look like candy but taste like DOG FOOD!
How does my pillow case shimmy off every day?
My just around the corner. I hate birthdays!
I startle easy!
I am so not in to the spooky part of Halloween!
Most often my slipers are in the furthest room from my cold feet!

Happy Fall and Happy Halloween! l

And I can not NOT share a good deal!! Look what I saw yesterday!
 In Logan in the old Boarders Book store. (next to Old Navy).

Syd my little niece would love this ruffled number!

Who doesn't need new modest swim wear!?

Cute 3 dollar tanks! YES PLEASE!

Little Miss Muffet!

For the last 2 weeks I have been sitting quietly in chuch and
feel a tiny tickle on my arm. BOTH times it was a tiny spider!

Little thoughts!

Yesterday in primary we were talking about
 the first family on earth. I held up a picture of Adam and Eve.
 I asked the kids if they knew who these people were. No one knew.
 I pretended I was rocking a baby in my arms.  A little boy then yelled.
 "The first baby sitters!"

Sheep Parade!!

Today while leaving work I happened on this (below). I was w/ one of the women from the group home where I worked. She was sure this was a sign of the second coming. I assured her it was just a "sheep parade". Hours later she said "So do you think those sheep were just out for a walk?"Life is nothing if not funny!! Happy Fall!

"LOVE..It's exciting and newwwww"

So my sister fell in love w/ a darling young man!
 They have chosen to get married on December 30!
 (That is come'n up quick)

They will marry in an LDS temple!

I got old doors for the backdrop. They are these exact colors.
I paid a dollar each! SCORE!! (backdrop)

The bride to be bought this for the sign in book!
(Her birds will be RED)

These would be cute!

Did I mention her colors are

She wants a candy table for refreshments!

More color ideas!!


My sisters reception will be held in a darling vintage
 LDS church in the avenues.
 It has charm but it's also old and has basket ball hoops.

Your mission if you choose to except it is to
 think of some more darling ideas!
 Mainly darling center pieces.

Use things you have around your house.
 Things from the thrift, dollar store or yard sales.
Use things that we could buy tp recreate your idea easily!
 Must have each of the above colors.
(or most of them.) The theme for the wedding is "Classy, vintage, fun"!

Send in a picture before 19th.

I feel better today and so I worked on a little project!! Yipee!!
 I found this ugly orange pine stool at a yard sale for 1 dollar.
I forgot to take a picture before I primed the top! Oops!

I need a tiny step stool to sit on while painting.
Sitting on the cement is just so yucky
and squatting can make moving the next day painful!!

This little number was perf and totally fit the bill!

Yes! I promptly ate the cherry tomato props right after the photo shoot!

Happy Fall!
Notice the rain in the pictures?
They are talking snow in the mountain this week. Sighh!

I feel awful! It makes me thankful for my good health 99% of the time!! I napped...and then I had promised to take my sisters engagement photos. (Yeah she is engaged. Dec. 30th is the big day!!) Being a photographer is harder then I dreamed. I mean I can photograph things no prob! People move though...and get moody and hot and they have to change their clothes mid shoot. Hard! I think we got some fun ones though!! Heres hope'n!! Happy Fall!!


Head Cold!!

Head Colds like this should be illegal!!
