Nothing a lil' shoe polish can't fix...

So, I found this mirror at the Lakewood Antique market several weeks ago, I knew when buying it that the gold just wasn't going to go in my house, but a friend of mine, Rebecca, told me about rubbing shoe polish on it to make it blacker and less gold and give it an older look. So that is what I did....



Here is the before:



And here is the after:

You can't tell too much difference in the pictures, but it made a world of difference...really went well with the black mantle, which I will post the before and after pics in a later blog for you! Oh, and did I mention I only paid $40 for the mirror? Yes! That is it, and I love it!

What not to do when you are cheating on your wife...

One major rule of cheating on your wife...DO NOT break it off with your mistress and piss her off, or this could be you:


Apparantly Charles Phillips, a top business executive, had an affair with YaVaughnie Wilkins for around 8 years. Phillips filed for divorce in 2008, and has since broken off the relationship with Wilkins. In the meantime, she had billboards with the couples photo, a website and a quote "You are my soulmate forever". The billboards were in Atlanta, New York and San Francisco. So to all you men cheating on your wives...just know you are now stuck with the mistress no matter what...you never know what that crazy mistress may do!! :)

Stop Thief!!

So, lucky for you, something happened at lunch and I must blog about it because it is something I must say, REALLY bothers me. I was sitting in the break room, minding my own business speaking with a co-worker, when along came another co-worker. I was having some chicken fingers and fries, the other co-worker that came in walked up to my plate, asked me oh, can I have a french frie and as I was saying no, no, no, is reaching her hand into my plate and taking a frie. She reached into my plate, while I was saying NO, and took a frie! Really? Who does that? That is so gross, I don't know where your hands have been, leave my fries alone. If you want one, aske, wait for a reply and I will hand you one. That simple. Don't just grab my food....oh, and not to mention, if she had grabbed a chicken finger, there would have been a fight in the break room! I mean a knock down drag out, because you DO NOT and I repeat, DO NOT touch my chicken fingers! Ok, thanks for letting me vent about this particular situation! I feel much better now!

What do you tell your children???




Bank Robber Brings Along 3 Year Old Daughter


For those of you who haven't read the full story here it is...you have to know the story to be able to understand...




Alright, so now that you have read the story what exactly did this man tell his daughter. "Come on honey we are going for a ride that at times will be like a roller coaster...its going to be soooo fun!!" Or was he just honest with her..."Come on honey, we are going to rob a bank today, this is an educational expeirence so I want you to take notes and next time you can help!" What is wrong with people today? They are becoming more and more crazy. It is almost depressing to turn on the news, but then again the stupidity of people is humerous. I just don't know what to think of people anymore.....

Pants on the ground....






So for those of you watching American Idol will know what I am talking about when I say pants on the ground...Larry Platt the 63 year old man that came before the judges on American Idol sang his own song called Pants on the ground. I have to say, I am finally glad to see someone speaking about this. I mean some of these people that where the pants on the ground should listen to this. It is ridicoulous why your pants should be that low, what is the point? I don't see how in the world you can even walk, much less run if you need to without your pants falling down. So, to end this post...You are looking like a fool with your hat turned sideways, gold in your grill walking around with your pants on the ground!!!! Go Larry Platt for finally speaking out!!

It has to start somewhere....

Well here we go! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and celebrated the New Year in a memorable way! I know I did, watching the peach drop in Atlanta was an expeirence that I can now say I have done. I have been there, done that, and even got some cool blinky 2010 glasses, and probably won't go back!

Enough about all that...now, lets buckle up and enjoy the ride on my blog! I hope to be able to post at least once a day and fill you in on life, my favorite things, projects I have been working on(or the hubby has done and I have taken credit for), decorating ideas, and anything else my mind can conjure up to talk about!

TTYL!
