Good-willin'

Last week I picked up this little number for .99 cents at Goodwill.
Bestie is really into crostich right now... it's rubbing off on me.



All i did was re-frame it
(in a frame I already had picked out for something else... meh.)
LOVE IT!



Perfect addition to my pile of wall decor I'm collecting to create a display like this...

Vintage Wednesday

One week until my 28th Birthday.
::sigh::
Thought I would share some vintage pics.
Before I even thought about being Mrs. Reagan.












Happy Wednesday Everyone!

My head is so big right now

I feel like I am 13 again...
walking into the lunch room...
and being asked to sit at the "cool girls table".

Lorie @ Be Different Act Normal featured my shamrock shadow box on her blog today... (how cool is that!)

AND

Carie @ The Life of Carie posted about the valentine treats I sent her during the I Choo Choo Choose You swap! (she is so sweet!)


I just love the blog world. I love the creative outlet. I love the blogs I read. I love the genuine interest long time readers have in your life. I love watching peoples families grow, mature, overcome obstacles, and lean on their followers for support. ::sigh::

Muffin-Top Monday! {Week 2}

Confession: I eat TWO breakfasts.

But, it's not what you think. {insert image of two dennys grand slams}
I get up early. I like to. Even now that I'm not commuting to work I still like to be productive in the mornings. So I eat breakfast around 5:30am. Think about it. With a lunch break scheduled at 1:30pm I would be going about 8 hours before eating again! ha. I can hardly go three hours without a snack, let alone 8 hours. So I eat another breakfast around 9am, then a snack at 11ish, and another snack between lunch and dinner. It helps me not to feel starved and over eat.


{1st: Peanut butter & honey on 9-grain thin bun}
 {2nd: cottage cheese & frozen fruit that thaws before I eat it}

And, since I did good at my weigh in I get to eat my favorite snack today!!

{pure heaven}

Notice the honey trend... I heart honey this week. :)
weigh in: -1.2 lbs (and I had french toast for breakfast saturday. not bad!)

I don't need a reason for CUPCAKES...

But, today is the first Nascar race of 2010 at Atlanta Motor Speedway!!
For us that means more customers/sales at the retail store where I work.
So I made my team some cupcakes to celebrate!
