I have discovered that my dog Charlotte loves to be pampered! I mentioned last week that I had bought her her own doggy nail polish. The first time I used it on her she wasn't too sure about it. But that has all changed.

This weekend I cut and painted Charlotte's nails. She loved every minute of it. She just laid on her back and let me go. I was rubbing her belly at the same time, which she loves! Then I decided to make her a toy. Hubby had a pair of jeans that had only been worn once and then busted in the wash (I had a cow when that happened). I used the material from them to make her a toy. Using blue jean material, I didn't think she would chew through it all that fast, I was wrong! She did like it though.

She is a little spoiled! Just a little:)

Thankful Thursday!

Today's Thankful Thursday is hosted by Iris at Grace Alone. Go on and visit and tell her what you are thankful for this week!

I am thankful this week for friends! I know I did a Thankful Thursday post on friends before, but I always seem to be amazed at what a friend will do for me. As some of you have seen by my post yesterday, I had a horrible shopping trip recently. After my post was up for a while I got a call from my friend saying she would be with me on my next shopping trip. She didn't know I had such a bad experience and didn't want it to happen again.
Thankful doesn't quite describe how I felt when I got that phone call. To know that she cared and was going to do something for me was a remarkable feeling. I don't have a ton of friends, but the ones I have I cherish! Shaunice is one of them!
Thank You Shaunice for caring about me and for all your love and support! You are a true friend!

My Shopping Trip Horror Story!!!

Shopping is one of my favorite things to do. Whether it's grocery shopping or window shopping. I even LOVE to window shop on tv. I am a QVC watching fool sometimes. I just like to know what's out there!

I normally plan my shopping trips for when Hubby gets paid. Lately our budget has been extremely tight, but I still enjoy browsing.

This past shopping trip was one I had planed for Lake Charles (the biggest town around me that has the most stores, including a Kroger). I don't just run off to Lake Charles anytime. It takes about a half a tank of gas to get there and back, so I waited until Hubby had some business there also. It just so happened that we where there at night. A time I never really shop.

So, to make a very long story short, I took Will and went shopping in the not as nice part of town because it was closer to a friends house. I made a bit of a mistake doing this. I was totally freaked out at Walmart alone with a small child and then parked near a door that unknown to me was closing in an hour. I would have to use the other door and walk the length of the building to get back to my car! I was rushing!!! I had to get what I need and pay before that door closed. I just had too! On top of that I left my coupons at home!!! So, I didn't get half of what I needed. I did have some luck though. The lady at the jewelry counter had not left yet and I needed to get Hubby his watch for Father's day. Of course they only had one in the style he wanted and for a lot more than I wanted to spend. I got it though because I knew he would like it and it would last a long time.

Next I loaded up my bags in my truck while scanning the parking lot for the boogy man! I got back on the road and headed in the wrong direction to Kroger. I ended up at a different Kroger than the one I wanted to go to. I stoped at it anyway. Mistake number five thousand and ten that day! This Kroger had ran out of everything on sale and had poor service. I left there and made my way to my friend's house in a long and round about way, since I went the wrong way again! I hate driving in the dark and being creeped out at the same time! I finally made it to her house to find Hubby had just arrived back too. I was so ready to go home and just forget that shopping trip! I have never had such a horrible time grocery shopping. Then I didn't get everything I needed! Stressful!!! I never plan to do that again!!!

Birthday Parites and ER Visits!

Let me start by saying.....What a weekend!!!!

We have been busy nonstop with summer activities and promoting Hubby. This weekend was going to be our slow one. We had a birthday party not far from the house to attend on Saturday and then Church on Sunday. That was a slow weekend we had planed.

Well, Saturday I rushed to get a last minute birthday gift for the birthday girl, when I realized I didn't buy one yet. (I had planed to, but I didn't shop when I wanted to, or how I wanted to, and ended up getting lost and a little frightened. I didn't get all I needed and forgot my coupons on top of all that. But, that's another story that I may just tell tomorrow.) Of course Will wanted to get her a spider man toy or a toy he wanted for himself. We finally decided on a Mrs. Potato Head in a mermaid costume. She was turning 2, so loved it of course!

We left the party in a bit of a rush because I had to fix dinner for Hubby before he went to work (he is on nights right now). With dinner done and Hubby off to work, Will and I watered the garden as always. After coming in the cool house and washing some dishes I went to the bathroom to find I had a spider on my hip! I couldn't brush it off, so I had to literally rip it off! I then tried to kill it and it just wouldn't die. I smashed it, hit it with every hard heavy object I could find in the bathroom, and tried to smoosh it with toilet paper. To no avail. It just wouldn't die! So, I stuck it in a zip top bag (the walmart brand of course) and called my dear Hubby. I told him how I fought with the little spider and how I couldn't kill it and didn't know what kind it was. I never saw a spider like that.

Hubby told me to go to the emergency room. It could be a poisonous spider that bit me. So, off to the ER I go. Panicking by this time! I had to remind myself to breath a few times on the drive there. Did my leg just go numb? No, I am over reacting! Breath Joshlin, Breath!!!

I get to the ER and no one knows what kind of spider this is in my bag! After the 4th nurse walks up we finally discover the mystery spider is not a spider at all. (It had 8 legs. That's why I thought it was a spider!) Its a tick! Of all things. That is why I had to rip it from my body and why I couldn't smash it. I was told to keep an eye on the spot it bit me and if I noticed any rings appearing around it or if I felt sick to immediately go to the doctor. I could get Lyme Disease. My chances are low because the tick had only bit me and I found it. It was not buried in me or engorged with blood.

Hubby was so worried about me he came home from work. He wanted to make sure I didn't have any reaction to the bite. I was fine, but it was so good to know that he loved me so much and was worried about me. I am a very lucky woman!

Sunday started bad. I overslept and had only 30 minutes to get Will up and ready for church. We did make it though. After church we just rested all day. I read a book and Will played inside. It was much to hot outside and I didn't really want to be out and about after the tick incident:) I hope the week goes better, but I already know we have a lot planed. Please help me pray for Hubby's musical carrier. We are doing everything we can to promote him. We have so much riding on this. Every prayer is greatly appreciated!!! Thank You!

Thankful Thursday!

This week has been another week filled with reminders of how much God takes care of us and loves us!

Each day I seem to find something else that fills me with wonder! For a time the stars did it for me. Since we got a dog I have been spending more time walking her as I tried to potty train her. I have spent more time under the stars amazed at their beauty and of how far away they seem. I can imagine heaven just beyond that point and my Heavenly Father looking down at me from there. How wonderful that feels!

This week I have been working and praying over my garden. I feel so much closer to Him when I play in the dirt. Just knowing that my start came from the same dirt makes me feel so happy. I feel so close to my maker this way! In the end we are only still alive because of the dirt. It made us, It grows our food, and it is always against our feet to remind us of our Lord!

From way up high to way down low, we have great reminders of the love God has for us, and not even that can help me know exactly how great his love really is. For him to give his only son Jesus to hang on a cross.....WOW! Do I love Him enough? No! I am working on that every day, but I know my love will never be much compared to His love for me! Amazing!

Thank you Iris for hosting Thankful Thursdays this month! Go on over to
Grace Alone and see what everyone else is thankful for this week!

Crochet Baby Style!

As I promised, today I will show my new crocheted creations. I made this for a friend of mine who is pregnant with her second little boy.

I made a baby blanket with a shell pattern and a little baby cap. In all it took me 3 days to make, but I didn't work on it continuously. I mainly did it in my spare time (which is getting shorter and shorter these days.)

Doggy Nail Polish Is So Great!

Well, this weekend was a crazy good one! I didn't have much planed for the weekend. Hubby was going to work a little (much needed) overtime. (He was a little down over this.) I had a baby shower to go to and Will just wanted to play outside in the oh so hot heat!

Friday Hubby did his overtime and came home to a much needed rest that afternoon. He mentions to me that Saturday morning they will have someone playing at a coffee house in Lake Charles, and he wanted to go. In the end we decided to all get up early and go. This would be a perfect opportunity for Will to see someone play live (since he is not allowed in most places Hubby plays in). We planed to be home in time for the baby shower I was going to and all would be well.

We did have a good time at the coffee house and Hubby got some good info. and maybe a future gig there. But, we didn't make it home in time for the baby shower. We met up with friends of our who had tickets to a local comics show. So Hubby when to that with him and I stayed and visited with her and the kids.

I missed the baby shower, but come back tomorrow and you can see the pictures of what I made for it. She will still get them, but just later on in the week:)

I also got something I have been wanting. I got Charlotte a bottle of Color Paw. It's nail polish for dogs! She is so cute with it on, but wouldn't let me take a picture. I got it in Lilac Pearl. It's so pretty I may just put it on me too so we could match. Hubby thinks I'm a little nuts for wanting to put on dog nail polish and matching with the dog, but so what. I like the idea! Besides it's water resistant and chip resistant. It's already sounding better than people nail polish!

Thankful Thursday

The last few weeks, I have had so much happen in my life. So many good things have happened and so many much need things have come about in such unimaginable ways.

Thankful is just not a strong enough word for the way I feel! I don't even know how to describe the way I feel. God loves us so much! He has given us so much. We are in one of the hardest and worst financial problems we have ever been in, and He has still taken care of us. We have been selfish and caused a lot of our own problems, and He has still loves us. We have dreams almost bigger than our imaginations, and He still wants us. We sin and He still forgives us.

He is a great God!!! Do we deserve him? No! So, today I am thankful for Him, His Son, and all the love He has for us. Life is good when God is in it, no matter how hard it is for us to make it in this world. He is always at our side.

Thank you God!

Thankful Thursday is hosted this month by Iris at Grace Alone. Please join us and let us know what you are thankful for this week.

Birthdays! Baby Showers! Parties upon parties! When does it end?

This month my calender was so pretty and clean. Only three birthdays listed on it. Then all of a sudden the invitations and phone calls started poring in. How did this happen?

I don't hate parties. I hate having to continuously figure out what to buy other people's kids that I hardly know. I hate spending extra money I don't have on gifts and gas. So, why go do you ask? Well, I do have a child who likes parties and his birthday does come around once a year. I expect everyone to come to his party. Especially those who have kids that I attended their party. Not for the gifts or anything, but for Will's birthday experience! I want him to have a boat load of kids at his parties too!

So to all those who ALWAYS come up with an excuse of why your kids just can't make a birthday part......Don't get mad when all the other kids don't show up to your kids birthday party!!!

How rude to expect other to just come to your birthday parties when you so obviously avoid my child's parties!

Am I alone? Is this just the way I feel? I don't know about everyone else, but If I have 4 kids and you don't show up to any of the 4 birthday parties I give (I know 4 is a lot to attend, so at least make one!), then don't expect me and mine at yours. ( I know I only have one child, but I am trying to make a point here.)

Ok enough ranting. I am just so overwhelmed with birthday parties and a few showers thrown in right now on top of everything else going on. I feel the candle burning at both ends sometimes!

At least I get to work on a new baby blanket for the baby shower and Will can have a lot of fun at the birthday parties! There is always a light at the end of the tunnel.

$30.00 Kroger Gift Card Giveaway!!! (CLOSED)

I would like to introduce everyone to the great organization called Feeding America. They are the nation's leading domestic charitable hunger-relief organization. They provide assistance to more than 25 million low-income people facing hunger in the United States. Yes the United States. It all stays right here at home.

The Biggest Loser, The Kroger Co. Family Stores, General Mills, and a few other key sponsors have partnered up to donate up to $1,080,000 to Feeding America this year. This is your chance to lose weight and feed your community all at the same time. You can go to The Pound for Pound Challenge and pledge to loose weight. For every pound you pledge to loose, the Pound For Pound Challenge will donate 14¢ to Feeding America - enough to deliver one pound of groceries to a local food bank.

I made my pledge to loose 15 pounds. This is just the motivation I needed to loose weight. I have been wanting to loose some for some time now, but just didn't have the "want", if you know what I mean. I took a trip over the weekend to Kroger and purchased some healthy food to start me off.

I am now on the right track to loose my wight and just hope I don't fall off the wagon too many times. ;) I have a feeling I may need to keep blogging about my progress just so that I keep doing it. I need to be accountable to someone right? Why not all of you!

Now for the Giveaway!

To help you achieve your goals The Kroger Co. Family Stores, General Mills, and My Blog Spark would like to give away a $30.00 gift card to one of my readers, that can be used at any of The Kroger Co. Family Stores.

Lesson Learned?

You think I would have learned my lesson by now! I have froze sour cream a number of times, as well as a few other things.

But today I froze almost half a dozen eggs and a squash. Did I push them to the back of the top shelf though? That is the question. I am assuming I did it. Will I learn my lesson now? only time will tell.

I hope everyone is having a great Sunday!!!

Thankful Thursday

Today on thankful Thursday I want to share how thankful I am for Hubby's show going so great last night.

Mater of fact it was so great they asked him to do an extra show last night and booked him for two more shows this month!

As far as my baby sitter problem. Well, my neighbor was kind enough to watch him and let him play with her little boy until my Dad got off of work. Then when we found out Hubby was going to do a second show, my Mother-In-Law was kind enough to go after the first show and take him home with her. So, he was shuffled in between 3 different people and now I have to go get in today from my Mother-In-Law's house. It all worked out even though it was a little crazy. I did leave it all in God's hands by the way. He always knows the best way!

Here is a picture of Hubby playing last night.

If you would like to join us this month for Thankful Thursdays, you can link up over at Grace Alone with Iris.

The Mrs.'s Garden!

I am now the proud owner of a garden! Not just any garden, but the Mrs.'s Garden! I did all the work. (Because I wanted to! I know sometimes I look back on things and think I'm a little off too!) If you remember a post I did a while back, Hubby gave me a garden for our anniversary. He surprised me with a friend of his coming with his tractor to turn me up a "spot".

Since then I have proudly done all the work. I tilled it up about 5 times, I made the rows, and I planted all the seeds and sprouts that I already started in cups and pots. I did it all by myself with a little "help" from Will. I fill like I just completed a major milestone in my life. I'm now hoping and praying that it does good. Hubby said that it's the first year and a little late at that, so it may not do the best this year. But look out next year. I will be ready!

Here is a picture of the garden at about 1:00 pm yesterday. I only made enough rows for what I wanted to plant that day. It took me 30 minutes a row, but they look good.

This is a picture of Will "helping" me plant! He is so cute in his little fireman boots he wears anytime we are in the yard.

Look out when it's time to plant my carrots, pumpkins, and other fall veggies!

June 1, 2010

You Can Really See It!!!

Today is going to be a better day! It already started a little better. The dog let me sleep until 8:15 this morning. Then she started to destroy Will's toys. She found a little cheep tractor he left out and.........well, it's not in too good a shape now. She is punished and knows it too!

To sleep till 8:15 was such a good thing. I don't sleep very well and that extra two hours was just what I needed. Today I'm going to work in the garden! (giggles) I can't wait. Today is also the day I go sign Will up for the summer reading program at the library. This will be his second year doing the summer reading program and he LOVES it!!! He has decided the the library in our town is "His" library. The library in the next town that I grew up in is "Mommy's" library. (Mommy's library doesn't have a computer set up for children his age!) So, we will be going to his library sometime today.

Yesterday he did a little art work for my ice box. This is what I got!

Can you tell what it is? I saw the tree and flower right away. I also saw the elephant after he told me what it was. As for the thing on the top, he said it's a road that has a train track on it and lots of cars. Ok? If that's what it is then that's what it is! I'm so proud his art is starting to really resemble things.

On a sadder note, We found out yesterday that our baby sitter for Wednesday (when Hubby plays his first gig) can't watch him. So, I'm stuck with a problem. It looks like Mommy will miss Daddy's first ever show:( I am totally bummed about this!!! But, there is nothing I can do. My baby can't stay all alone and I don't want to leave him with someone he doesn't know. All will work out though. I have put it all in God's hands. Now just to remember to leave it there!!! That's the hard part!
