I love a good dollar store project.  Recently I decided to re-do the décor above my kitchen cupboards.  I was going for a farmhouse-y sort of vibe/style but I didn’t want to spend a fortune.  I saw some ideas that used cake plates as a fun way of adding levels and dimension for decorations above cupboards.  Again, I didn’t wanna pay 15-20 for each cake plate so I went to THE PINTEREST for dollar store hacks.

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram this isn’t news to you. But because I have followers on my blog, but not social media, I need to share here. So long ago we planned to have two cows, well a cow and a steer for those of you who know the difference.  We put a deposit down early last year for a steer that was mini Scottish Highland from a ranch in Colorado.  We wanted it […]

Spring Break Brings a Reminder about Perspective

Last week was the kiddo’s Spring Break.  If you remember, last year on Spring Break we built the chicken barn.  This year, we took an airplane to visit my brother and his wife in the Denver area. Traveling with POTS isn’t easy.  It’s hard.  It’s heavy.  My purse has to include my emergency kit, ALL of my medications in original bottles, water, salt, entertainment (distraction), etc.  It’s annoying being pushed everywhere and not having independence to walk.  […]

Deep Thoughts About POTS / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This / Uncategorized

Hey.  Life gets hard even if health is perfect.  Things come up.  It can get overwhelming.  This past week I’ve been having more symptoms than normal and even being on bed rest have still had enough issues regulating my blood pressure that I’ve been to my primary doc and my electrophysiologist this week.  I’ve had more EKG’s this week than I’ve had in the last year.  But, I’m writing today about my tiny victories.  Not […]

Deep Thoughts About POTS / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This / Uncategorized

Apparently I’ve been missing writing.  As soon as the Christmas crowd and party was all over I was eager to get back into my book I’m writing, and while I procrastinate that I’ll just write little thoughts for y’all to read.  Ha! The New Year can mean so many things.  For some people, it’s a clean slate, a fresh start.  For others, it’s just another day to work on the same goals that have always […]

Holy moly, it’s been almost two months since my last post.  I apologize.  The end of the year always gets insanely busy.  Let me do a bit of a recap for y’all. During the second week of December Tom and I visited Leavenworth, WA for a lovely getaway.  If you aren’t familiar, Leavenworth is a charming little Bavarian-themed village known for their Christmas decorating, sausages, and Octoberfest.  We love a little getaway just the two […]

I’m just gonna tell you right now that I won’t show all the pictures here now because I’ll send some on Christmas cards this year and I don’t want to ruin the surprise. We had a perfect plan, but spoiler alert it didn’t go as planned. Photo Credit for all of these lovely photos, including some outtakes, is Empire Studios.  I highly recommend her because 1) She wasn’t scared of Tom’s cranky moments. 2) She wasn’t afraid to […]

Hold my Gatorade and watch this!  I made a little Etsy store with all of my handmade jewelry.  No, I’m never gonna make money or anything cool like that, but I really enjoy being creative with styles and ideas.  If you follow me on Facebook, you already know about this, but if not it still counts as news to you. Hey, maybe be a pal and jump onto Etsy and favorite my shop.  If you […]

Hey all.  I’m still here and alive.  I’ve been busy/distracted lately so I haven’t blogged in a bit. So what’s new?  Here’s what kind of stuff is going on lately: As of yesterday, NHL is officially back and for that we are all thankful.  Love me some hockey. Tom and I watched Arsenic and Old Lace on October 1st to kick off the month.  It was my first time seeing it, but I certainly enjoyed […]

Another year of life has passed. It makes me feel happy and organized to catalogue what kind of cool things happened in the year.  Plus, it’s always a good exercise in review.  Sometimes I get confused and think I just sat on the couch for a year so I need to put it all together and then I’m proud of myself.  Ha. Year 31: Conquered Vegas at Christmas time to see George Strait in concert […]
