Good Morning!! I can’t believe how busy I’ve been! My kids went to their Grandma’s yesterday for a week, and I swear it took a week to get them ready!!! They left last night, on a plane that was delayed over an hour and a half. Who says hurricane’s can’t strain the traveler in Seattle? They are going to have a wonderful time though, first thing today they headed off to a local Water Park. I see them coming home nice and bronze~ NOT FAIR! I’m so happy that they got to go though, this is the first year in a long time that we haven’t gone on some kind of family vacation. The car problems we had last February took all of our vacation fund to get fixed. We have been doing a lot around here though.
Anywhoo.. Here are a few pictures of some new things around my house.. the whole family wall was done for only $6.00. Not even ten dollars I spent recently. The shelf I bought in Colorado at a yard sale for $1.00, the picture frames were old except the 8×10 ($2.00), I just painted them, the vase, letter M, and bird from the dollar store ($3.00), the wall words were a gift from my neighbor. I printed out the pictures. I have a plate that I wanted to hang, but it didn’t fit in the grouping. I also used some of the wall words on that pesky end of the hall wall. Hubs said he didn’t want anything hanging there since its such a small space anyway.. he’s afraid he or the boy will knock something down.. so this was the perfect solution.. a little somethin! And then finally, a picture of the frog painting that we bought awhile ago at a yard sale for my son. It was marked $150.00 from a Seattle Art Studio, we got it for $10.00. It goes so well in his teenage room.. someday I’ll get in there and get some more pictures.

Yesterday before we left, I got the whole house clean, dusted and the bathrooms done.. cuz after I go for a walk with the dogs, I’m going to sit and read BREAKING DAWN The 4th book in the TWILIGHT series.. I have to tell you, I already read it over the weekend.. but I read it so fast that I know I missed some good stuff, I just wanted to know what happened!!! ITS SOOOOOO GOOOOOOD! I know I’ve said this.. but definitely read these books!!! Especially the first one ‘cuz the movie comes out in December!
I’m off to walk Sully and Sophie.. and as you can tell by the picture at the beginning of the post, Sully’s waiting by the door!!!
