Black Friday Weekend Fun!!


This past weekend was SO MUCH FUN! I went Black Friday shopping with a dear friend from Texas! We had a blast!

We went to Kohls at 11pm and stood in line till they opend at 12! We got some GREAT deals! Ill get pictures of my shopping soon and put them up!
This was are Kohls savings!

 We went to Micheals later on in the day ( after we had got some sleep!)

Ihope for Breakfast was a MUST and this was the coffee I got :)

And no trip to Jackson is complete without Starbucks! Pumpkin Spice Latta baby! :) 

I decided this year to make my own Christmas wreath! I LOVE how it came out!!

This weekend was also a sad one. A friend from when I lived back in PA that used to babysit me when I was young and has been a very close family friend lost her fight with Cancer Sunday night. She will be greatly missed. 
When I first heard sh had passed I smiled, why? I was thinking how she is up there with my Grandma now, she can enjoy time with her like old times!!

More later this week!!

WARNING...Political Post!

Before I even start this post I want to warn you that this is a political post! If you feel you will be offended by it please don't read it!
I have decided that this is my blog and I need to be sharing more me. So I will be doing more post on my beliefs  I understand I may loose some followers for that, But I need to be true to myself! Thanks Y'all!

On Tuesday America made a choice, one I do not agree with, but none the less they made a choice. 
No, I did not vote for President Obama, I voted for Mitt Romney. I understand it was a leaser of two evils type of thing,but I have some strong beliefs that I have and they just did not meet up.
I was watching some TV right before the elections and I happened upon an ad campaign that The President put out. Most of what he was promising to do for his next 4 years was the same as he promised before, and that confused me. Whats to say he wont do them this time like he did not do them before?
I am very much against abortion, Yes, I am one of those weird people who believe it is life and you are murdering! Me and the President don't see eye to eye on that. Among other things.
Dont get me wrong, if you voted for or love the President, its OK  you have how you feel, and I am NOT going to tell you not to! We live in a FREE America, so we can all have that right! That's one thing I love about America! I can post blogs like this, and I wont be in trouble for it!

Ok, I am done for now! I just really needed to get that off my chest!

How do you all feel about the election?

So I have been online and have done EVERYTHING they tell you do to! I am trying to just wipe the phone and start again but my Itunes is being weird! Grrr....
The one bad thing about living in the country, I'm not near an Apple or a Verizon store!
Anyone have any other ideas for me?

Praying...No More Tears!

                                                                    Pray for Dante

I posted the link picture above some time ago. My blog has gone thru some remodels, has moved states with me, yet that button has still stayed. Why, because I support it!
 I pray for this dear baby boy all the time!

I just got an update from a bloggy friend telling me that Jesus is ready to take this sweet angel home. As this saddens my heart today it also makes me joyfull!
No more pain, no more tears, no more bumps, not mistakes. He is going to meet the most amazing person ever!
Please pray for his family as they go thru this! If you want updates I will try to keep them here but you can also click on the button for more! Would you take this button and share it with your friends?

It has been SUPER cold around here! I dont mind so much! I have always loved the cooler months! Bundling up and all!



Monday, September 24, 2012


The past few days here in Mississippi it has been COLD! 45 at night and the high has been 77!( today its gonna be 88 but that does not count! )

I got 2 Mums for my front porch and I have a very cute wreath! I am getting pumpkins this weekend and I CANNOT WAIT!!!! ( Note this did not post when I wanted it too, internet again, so I have my pumpkins, pictures coming soon!)

So in the spirit of fall and the fact that I cant wait to get my pumpkins, let me show you what im pinning on my fall board!!

Monday, September 17, 2012


Yes, I have been very quiet. And for that I am sorry!

I could use the excuse that It has been busy around here, that our internet has not been working, and that I started teaching 2 weeks ago and am up to my elbows in Literature and Spelling! And all those things would be true! But that is not a good reason!

I guess for me I have sorta lost myself. I started blogging for me! Because it looked fun, and I enjoyed writing things, and posting pictures, and linking up with things.
And I loved looking back on my post and stuff. 
But than I ment amazing people on the blogging world, and no, that was and is a good thing, but I guess I took it to far!
I started to not get a ton of comments, and people started unfollowing me. And I started taking it to heart.

But I am finding myself again. Finding why I loved blogging!
So I  am back!
I am busy with teaching, and our internet has been rough, but when that does not hinder me I will be blogging allot more.
And even if I have no more followers, and no one comments, I am going to blog for me!

Ok...I am done! Keep an eye out for some good blog post to come!
