Words, Words, Words......

Words, words, words, and more words!!! Yes, I have words in my home!!! It's almost like reading a book when you come to my house. No use to come and visit, you can just come and READ!!! OK, it's not really that bad.

Here are a few of my favorites.

This is hanging on the door of the laundry room. I do get help, however, it's never enough!!

This is a favorite of mine.....the first song Alex sang was "You are mine Sunshine", so I thought this was appropriate to hang on the wall with all his photos over the years. I was so happy when I found this sign.

I think every home must have this one..........

Sadly, this is soooooo TRUE!! Thank you Arthur!!!

This is hanging in the hallway by our bedrooms. We've actually have had this for a long time.

Encouraging a good nights rest.

I actually bought this for my mother, but I thought my father would be offended, so I kept it for myself. His way is the only way, you know.........????

I have a few more, but these are the ones that I have pics of, so far. The rest are up too high, so the pics did not turn out that well.

That's all for now. Please be sure to leave a comment, so I know you stopped by!!

Have a great week!!!!!!!!

Friday Garage Sale Finds........

Happy Sunday!! Hope everyone is having a great day. I had to write and tell you all about my great garage sale finds this weekend. A couple of my friends were having sales this week, so my friend Amber & I went looking Friday night.
First off, I found this knock off Prada bag for $1.00!!
Was looking for a backet for my gourds.....thought this would be perfect.....50 cents

Not sure what this metal basket will be used for, but I had to have it!! $3.00

I loved this little item (not sure what to call it) I think for now, I will use it for fruits & veggies that I find in my garden. However, can be used for many things.......$3.00

I have been looking for something for this part of my wall....well, I think it fits well here, now just have to find a candle or something for the top shelf. The greenery was also a garage sale find. I actually got quite a bit of greenery for around the house. $3.00
I also purchased a 7 ft Christmas tree for $10.00. I was kind of looking for a replacement for the one I have, as mine has to be put together branch by branch. This is all on hinges. Hope I like it when it's out of the box!!
That's all for now. Enjoy whats left of the weekend!!

First Day of School

My Alex started school today!! He's a sophomore, and have been told I will not post his picture from this morning!! Apparently the whole picture thing was not cool. So, I will just post some pics from previous first days of school. How's I just have to find them. Be right back!!
OK, I only found a couple. The rest I already have scrapbooked.

Here he is ready for school....(not sure which grade, my bad!) I do know that it was when we lived in Fargo.

And another in Fargo. Again, not sure which grade.

Look at him now!! This is not a first day of school, but was taken this summer when he was in Atlanta for the Nat FBLA Convention.

Now he's driving, has his own car, and doesn't really even need me around much anymore. However, I did have to wake up this morning and make him coffee. So, he does still need me!! He even walked to school today......rather then drive his car!! ( we are only a few blocks from school.)

That's all for today, I am off this morning, but will be on my way to work in a bit. (I'm on call)

Have a great day, and will be back later this week!!

Thanks for all the great comments!! Keep'em coming!!

Vacation, Coming to an End

Sadly, my 10 days off is quickly coming to an end. I cannot even tell you how much I enjoyed not being at work since August 8th!! Not that I got anything accomplished....had plans to clean out closets, organize things, clean the garage, etc. I am happy to say that none of that got done!! The following are pictures from my week away from work.

Alex taking is easy fishing.

C is for cucumber!!
Alex and my nephew Nick at a Baseball game. Alex's 16th Birthday!!

Mini golfing on Alex's birthday.

Alex and Nick mini golfing.

I have actually posted these pics and others 2 different times, and it would not post. I am hoping that this will post, or I may just give up!!

Hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend. We start school here on Aug 20th, so our days will be changing, real soon. (no more sleeping in for Alex) This is probably the first year that I am not excited for him to go back to school. (I'm anticipating harder classes this year and more homework) He does very well, so I shouldn't worry.

Thanks for stopping by and
please do make my day and leave me a comment!!

Happiness at Our House..........

Happiness in our home is more then just getting a car, working 24+ hours of overtime, taking a week off of work for a little vacation.

Here's what makes Alex and I happy..............

Fresh from the garden...........mmm,mmm,mmm. I am impatiently awaiting my tomatoes to turn red. I have a ton of green ones, so I spose they will all turn red at the same time.

I was surprised to see these 2 new lillies when I got home today.....they are a different color then the previous ones, and I like them!! They have many potential blooms, so looking forward to more pretties.

And my Gladiola bloomed while I was away at work this weekend.

From our home to yours.........Hope you all have a happy week.
