Our Date....

Well, I know you were all REALLY wanting to know what I planned for our date night. Well, we went to Kennesaw Mountain and laid in the field on some blankets and had a snacknic! We had fruit, chocolate and wine! It was such a great time to just catch up on life with the husband. We were able to talk and laugh, and no one was around to bother us. It was such a GREAT date!! After our snacknic, we hiked the mountain..well we walked a little ways up the mountain. My ticker over there only says I have quit smoking for almost 3 weeks...hiking a mountain isn't too easy! :) It was a great time though, and did I mention all that was paid for to spend this quality time with the husband was the fruit and chocolate??? What a CHEAP date, and one of my faves so far...lets just see if the husband can beat it next month! Wish him luck, and if you feel he needs help leave some comments of what he might be able to do to top my date! Here are a few pics of the date...

Date Night


So, the hubby and I have decided that once a month we are going to set aside a night for US. On these nights we will take turns planning the dates. I am so excited about this...the other person won't know where they are going or what they are doing until they get there! I just love this new idea! So, this first month is my month to plan it...I have got the BEST date ever planned. It is something we have never done together!!! I just can't wait...I can't tell you what it is either because he may read it...so I will let you know at a later date what this date is! I hope I haven't left you hanging...just a few days and I can tell you what the date is!! Although, if anyone has any suggestions for future dates...I am always up for new ideas, so just let me know!

Happy St. Patty's Day!!!

Just wanted to drop in and tell everyone Happy St. Patricks Day!!! I know, its a little late for that, but for some the drinking of the green beer has yet to begin, although for those of us with children are more than likely finishing up our days! Anyway, no matter what the plan is, hope you have a GREAT day!! HAPPY ST. PATRICKS DAY!!!

Rhett's St. Patricks Day Shirt...My first Applique Project

I decided to make Rhett a St. Patricks day shirt that didn't look so babyish, or have some corny saying on it. Rhett is all about skulls and crossbones here lately, so I had some fabric that had that on it, and decided to get a green shirt and applique a shamrock onto the shirt...seeing as this is my first time EVER appliquing(not sure if that is spelled right), I must say I am pretty proud. It has a couple spots where it could use some work, but all in all, I am pleased! Well, I guess I can let you see for yourself....

My extremely handsome Irish boy!!


Up close!

Hopping Into Spring

I was thinking earlier in the week how my house needs a touch of spring. I am not one to decorate my house with pastel blues, greens, yellows and pinks. Sorry, it just doesn't go with the main colors in the house. Well, while looking at all the blogs I follow, I came across some twine'ified eggs over at Domestically Speaking's Blog! You can view them on Domestically Speaking's blog here ! These are absolutely adorable eggs wrapped in twine. Well, I didn't have twine so I improvised and used some hemp. They still turned out GREAT! All I have done so far is enough for spring decor on my mantle...here are a few pics of what I did:

The Spring Mantle Decor

Well, I am going to get back to making more eggs...need to get a centerpiece done for my island! Everyone have a GREAT week!!

Taking the Challenge


Well, I woke up this morning and decided that I was going to quit smoking. I decided I didn't really NEED a cigarette, so as of now, I have 2 cigarettes left and once they are gone, that will be it. This is going to be a long road, and if history repeats itself, if I can make it through the second week...I will be good to go! I have always made it through the first week, and when it comes to the second week I turn into evil devil woman, and my husband will be the one driving to the store and buying me a cigarette. I mean, I become so bitchy that I can't even stand to be around myself. So, in other words....wish me luck and pray for my family! Hopefully we can all make it through this alive!

Home Is Where You Hang Your Bags!

This is what it looks like in the cabinet under my sink....


Wow! How embarrassing, can't believe I showed you that picture...Well, I have had enough of that, all the grocery bags need a new home...


So, I decided to use my sewing machine and make a home for the grocery bags, so today, I made a grocery bag holder...not the best looking thing, but I am extremely proud!! This is the first usable item I have made with my sewing machine! I am sooo excited, this bag will always be cherished. Anyway, here is my masterpiece...


Now my husband can't tell me he bought that sewing machine for nothing... :) I am figuring it out slowly but surely. I don't have much time these days since baseball has started, so I am working on it when I can. Keep checking back for more fun projects I have done!

I'm dreaming of a white.....


BEACH!!! I am so ready for a beach vacation it's not even funny. The only white we have seen around here is snow, and I am sick of that. I am ready for the warm weather, sand between my toes and pina colada with the little umbrella thingy in it! Yes, I said the umbrella, because it is not a pina coloda without the umbrella thingy! I can't wait for summer vacation to the beach...I can just taste the salt water and feel the sand! Alright, enough of me talking about it, let me go find a good deal at the beach!

Sincerely

Randi
