Ok so I know it’s been forever since I’ve written and I promise there has been good reason. If I could write every day I would, but for now I have to limit a few days a week. But Friday I had to skip and thought I could write Saturday. And I missed it. And I missed it Sunday. And I decided to skip it all together. Now my favorite post of the week has been delayed.

So remember how I hurt my ankle and it’s taking forever for it to be healed and how it’s going on almost 3 months? Ya…..there is a possibility they may have found something else…….we aren’t for sure yet….and we are still waiting on blood tests…..but I have been a wreck because it’s just ONE MORE THING on top of everything else that we need right now. So I haven’t been feeling that great and for that I apologize for not writing.

So on to happy times, when I was younger, I had major tomboy qualities. I did have my barbies and My Little Ponies, but when my brother would leave, I would secretly play with his toys and I LOVED it! One of my favorites to play (and even favorite shows to watch!) was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. My favorite? Raphael. 🙂

We don’t have blinds in our room yet (I know, weird) and the sun LOVES blaring right in my eyes so this would be a pretty cool way to cover them up. 🙂     (source)

I love fun earrings and these are worth getting! (source)

K, this hat would be super fun for my boys, but I think this picture is super cute and funny!!! (source)

I so hope one of my friends get this……………………………(source)

This one is great for adult AND kid in you. A coloring book flask? This even comes with your own set of 12 jumbo crayons. Talk about awesome. 🙂     (source)

These make me want to play with them again and watch the OLD cartoons again. I’m sorry, but I can’t really get into the newer ones they have playing now. They just aren’t the same to me.

And I promise that I’ll be better at posting. It’s hard when you aren’t feeling well and are SO tired and in pain. But being able to post is something I truly enjoy.

But NOW…….onto something else……….


Would you like to have something dedicated to you? don’t you think it’s fun when you see something out there and you think…..ya, that’s me…..that’s for ME, or that’s about ME? Well, now you can. My sister shop Abbey Roo is going to have a contest where YOU get to create a picture dedicated for you. You don’t have to be a fancy artist. Or even draw anything at all if you don’t want to. But this is still a time where YOU get to create. Head on over and send me ideas on a picture that YOU would like to see. You can either put it in the comment box or send a little sketch. I will be picking a random winner on May 13th. The Winner will get a print of the piece and it will be sold in my shop with it dedicated and named after them.

I am VERY excited to see what you all come up with and how creative you get. Remember, have FUN!!!




80’s movies. I LOVE them. That era is seriously my favorite when it comes to movies and music.  We have been having the kids watch all of our favorite movies we watched as kids to see if they would get into them. I can tell there are some things they aren’t as crazy about, but the top favorite of theirs for now is………

Who you gonna call?

That’s right. They are in LOVE! So today I am dedicating my post to one of our favorite classics!

I love these earrings. Rylie has declared that the Stay Puft Marshmallow man is her best friend. She freaks out anytime she see’s him and wants a doll of her own. If I laugh at her for being so cute, she will get mad at me. Then it makes me laugh even more.   (source)

I love these nesting dolls. I would totally put them on my fireplace. (source)

And this is just plain awesome. You can stock up early for Halloween as Dana Barrett! (Source)

This Slimer necklace is so cute with the food dangling around him! (source)

And who could forget the Keymaster? (source)

These bring back SO many memories and think these make great gifts or collectibles for ANY Ghostbuster fan. I think for awhile I may be doing segments based on my favorite 80’s flicks.  I just never get tired of them. What 80’s movies are your favorite?

I just realized that it’s soon coming to an end to my 30 day challenge and I have to say, it’s been interesting.  I’ve actually enjoyed myself!

Hmmmm…..a letter to my parents…This is a little tough since my father died when I was 11. So, if this is to both of them, would I have to write as if I was a child again?

No. I would rather not relive that age.

Dear mom and dad,

I wanted to write a letter to you and let you know of the gratitude I have.

First, dad.  I know that I don’t know you as well and can only remember bits and pieces, but I know that I have inherited some wonderful things from you.  For one, you have made me a great prankster.  I thoroughly enjoy trying to find fun and interesting ways to scare my husband and I know that I wouldn’t have been able to do it without your teachings.

(Yes. I still remember sitting in my room then opening the door to leave with you knelt down growling at me. ) I also know that I am getting better and better at it too. Especially if he is jumping out in the MIDDLE of a shower just to see if I am home yet. Yes. I’ve made him THAT paranoid.

And mom. Sweet mother.  I want to say thank you for all the baking. I’ve become so in love with baking that it makes me feel better having some normalcy in my life. Having to work full time makes everything hectic. But with baking, it relaxes me. The work, the smells, and the taste testing……I love it all. Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipes with me. And most, thank you for actually baking WITH me. I will cherish these memories forever.  (But still, the taste testing, Mmmmmhmmm….)

Thank you parents for making me the person I am today.  I make sure to not take the little things for granted because you never know what’s going to happen.  I make sure to let my family know how much I love them and help them know how much they mean to me.

I thank you.






I look at this picture and try to remember what I was feeling that day.


I know that I was mixed with emotion.




In pain.








Why can’t I be happy with myself?


Sometimes I look at these pictures and think about the choices I have made and directions I have taken.


Why didn’t I take the other road?


I am stronger because of the pain I went through.


I am wiser.


I’ve made more mistakes.


I’ve learned from those mistakes.


Life has taken me on quite the journey. Lots of ups and downs.


But really if I hadn’t have taken those journey’s, I wouldn’t be who I am now.
