It's Almost Time....


Seriously. I can't sleep. I have to work in the morning ya'll.
I want every last one of you to win. I am so nervous for you!

On another note.... I am just going to come out and admit that the reason it took me so long to add people to my "blog Roll" is because I knew how to do it...and then I forgot. I am pretty sure I got the hang of it now though so look out.

Okay I am going to bed But I am going to be up bright & early to draw a name.

Give away!!!!!

Okay I am WAYYYY New to this whole blog thing...obviously. BUT I wanted to join in on the fun so I could not pass this up. I hope I don't mess it up!

Kim, who hangs out here The Twice Remembered Cottage put this together and I am very excited to offer these wonderful goodies to anyone who leaves a post between now and May 30 @ Midnight. I will put all names in and draw one at random. I think I will keep it as simple as possible for my first give away, so only one post per person. If you do not have a blog then please leave your email so that I can contact you. Have fun & make sure you go and enter ALL the fun!

4 Rose postcards

Happy anniversary to ME!

This is the sign the kids (not really kids...they are 20,18 & 13!!) got me for Mother's day.

Today is the thirteenth anniversary of my marriage to an incredible man. I am so blessed to be able to share my life with him. We usually don't exchange gifts but this year he bought me a beautiful little table for our porch. Now we can sit out there in the morning with our coffee and pretend we are on vacation! We are off to dinner in a bit but I wanted to post some pictures first. Enjoy.

What I have been doing with my time........

I have been helping my "baby" brother plan his wedding!! & going to punk rock concerts with my 13 year old....but more on that later.

My brother and his sweet bride Brandi had to move their wedding date due to work/insurance reasons sooooo my sister,Carol, her daughter Kindra & I kicked into turbo mode & planned this thing in 3 ...yes I said three.....weeks!
And believe it or not it was wonderful! They really are a sweet couple and they are working hard to make a good life for their baby Graycie. I am proud to tears of them both. I volunteered to make the wedding cake for them......I am not sure why I did this, seeing as how the icing barely makes it onto the cupcakes in my house!!!
I have to say it actually turned out pretty good. I used a "Faux Fondant" technique which involved paper towels & lots of rubbing.

This is my brother Adam & my husband Brian, who is a Pastor. He performed the ceremony, which was beautiful & personal. He has known Adam since he was about 15 (he is almost 30 now!) Adam looks a little afraid :0)

This picture just cracks me up!....Yes.....We are from Kentucky!
