I am insane and now I have proof!

Welcome friends.  I found out today that I am really insane.  As you know DH is home but really busy visiting everyone but me.  I am pretty much bed bound and miserable.  I went totally nuts today. I loaded the dogs in the truck and decided 'road trip'  Now my excuse is all the drug residue in my body.  I am having a fit to have good photos done of the dogs and can't find anyone to do them.

So we are driving around and I think PASSPORT PHOTOS!  LOL  I take 13 pound Trina in the store (drug store) and tell them she is a famous dog actor that works with a petting zoo that is going to Mexico and she  needs passport pictures.  The person taking the pictures keeps saying I never heard of that.  hmmm. Finally she says I better call my manager.  I thought, I better get out of here!  They would not let me leave so I am waiting to give my apology.  Mind you there were NO other customers in there at all.
The clerk came back and said the manager sad to treat her like a baby and hold her up over your head.  Well Trina is 13 pounds ad we finally got the above results.
Was I happy with that?  NOOOOOO.  I go get 65 pound Josh and tell them I just had back surgery and can't lift her.  They were so kind trying to lift Josh with her 10 foot legs flopping over their heads.  It took 3 of them.  I about peed my pants.  No picture of Josh, but not for lack of trying.

I will call them tomorrow, apologize, send flowers or candy. or a cake.  I am still laughing.  Was I awful?  Darn it was funny.  Am I officially crazy?

So much fun, so little time

Welcome friends, wow it has been busy around here.  With DH arriving home, our precious younger niece coming for a visit (12 years old) my mom, sister, and brother came by for a quick visit also. My precious niece cooked, decorated , and in general prepared our entire meal for Saturday evening.  Let me tell you, it might have been heavy on the dessert end but it was wonderful!  She used 2 cookbooks and  the back of
a can of cocoa.  My advice is to watch this blog, an incredible 1st anniversary giveaway coming up.x
Thank you for stopping in and be on the lookout for the goodies to come.
Thank you so much for stopping in and sharing the happiness our family is experience  this few weeks.
I treasure each every comment you leave.

My most beautiful tablescape evah!

Welcome!  I am joining our lovely hostess Susan from Between Naps on The Porch for Table scape Thursday.  It has been a little over a year since I found her site and have seen tablescapes that have blown me away.  Incredible, talented, gifted  men and women have wowed me with images and information that keep me entertained for hours every week.  This, my friends would be my most beautiful table scape evah! 
Many of you know that my husband went to work in Saudi Arabia in Feb,2010. For 8 long months
my tables have pretty much looked like this.  A table set for one.  These are our everyday dishes, a spoon cause I am having soup.  Walmart flowers, but tonight.......drum roll please.......

My table is set for 2!  My husband will be home any minute.  Can you tell I am excited?
That is his favorite glass.  He stole, I mean borrowed it from my sister 14 years ago.
Have you ever seen such a beautiful table.  He is having chicken wings, that is why he has no

So there you have it, my most beautiful table.  I am sitting on pins and needles waiting for the phone
to ring.   Give your significant others and your kids a special hug and kiss tonight.  While this table
may seem plain in comparison to so many I have seen, trust me it is the best.
When I set this table I sat down and cried. How lucky I am to have a husband that would travel 10,000 miles across the world to support his family.  It has been difficult, and he has to go back in 3 weeks
but boy and I going to hold on to him so tight.

I will say that he wanted ham, ham, ham.  But since it is so late I did not want to prepare much.  He will get his fill of ham and beer,  LOL.

Thank you so much for visiting.  Go check out all the incredible tables.  You will be amazed.

I treasure each and every comment.

I am channeling Martha!

Welcome friends!  Well Doug is in the air.  He will touch down in Atlanta tomorrow at 4:00PM EST.
I am a nervous wreck and so excited!  Thought I would share some of my fall decorating.  I actually made some things.  Can you believe it?
I bought this candle holder for $1.75 at a flea market, you really can't tell it but it has little orange crystals hanging from it.   Then I hot glued 5 dollar store pumpkins. I scattered leaves and gourds and pumpkins around.  I think it turned out right cute.

 OK, my picture taking sorta messes this up.  Last January I found a white Christmas tree at Rite Aid for just a couple of bucks.  I spray painted it black and added lights, bugs, spider webs and creepy stuff.  Hanging on the wall are Quacker Factory witch stockings.  The table has a black lace lighted cloth with skulls and scary pictures all around.  I go for the mildly scary, not gross scary.
 I wish I could remember whose blog I saw this on to give them credit.  I took 3 black dollar store picture frames, cut  scrap booking paper and added the letters.  The spiders were from the dollar store also.  The crows on the stocking hangers were from the dollar store also.  One of the folks that I shop with on ETSY sent me the bats.  Again, my picture taking is terrible, you sorta have to combine this picture with the one above and you will get the idea.  I am pleased with the look. I forget the nieces aren't babies any more.

My Halloween apron is a candy corn print with orange accents.
I am enjoying going through my aprons and actually using them
Thank you Miss Janice for the great idea.
 Doug found this bottle last year and one of the blogs offered the downloads of different creepy labels.  It looks so real to me.

 Thank you so much for visiting.  I always enjoy your visits, but today I want to tell you how I treasure the bonds and friendships I have made here.  It has been difficult while Doug has been gone.  You will never know how many nights I would be crying and missing him so badly and click on the blog.  Sure enough, someone will have posted  something I needed to hear.  I have laughed, I have cried but most of all I made it through with YOUR help.  Thank you my friends.

Our Precious Grandson!

Welcome my friends.  Happy October!  I am sorry I have not posted or even read blogs in quite a while.  I had to be admitted to the hospital 2 more times.  I am tired but otherwise doing well. Now have you
ever seen such a cutie pie in all your life?  LOL

It is 4 days until my husband will be home!  I have been working on the most beautiful table scape I have ever done.  Hopefully I will have it ready to share with you this week.

Thank you for stopping in for a visit.  I enjoy them so very much.
