finally, some clothes...

Just a few random things on Friday...



As the snow was melting with the lovely sunshine, Toby decided that as much as he wanted to go outside, he just wanted to enjoy it for a bit before doing his duty.  You would think that it would still be a little chilly and I'm sure that it was a bit, but he loved it.  These last few weeks have just been getting warmer and warmer and it makes the "winter blahs" go away.  Thanks goodness!



First, (as Lori said) NO, I'm not trying to pull a Brittany here.  I'm at work and that is my headset for which I use to talk on the phone.  Second, please ignore that this is basically a great boob shot, that wasn't what I was going for.  Third, please ignore the mini red blimish below my collar bone that showed up that morning as well.  Geez, this is awful and at this point I should probably not even post it but we're already this far, I'm just going to wrap it up...

Try to focus in on the flower pin in the picture.  A friend of mine and I have been trying to make these over the last few months.  This was the first one that I made and I'm actually very happy with it!  It's got my favorite color orange, green and brown in it and it goes great with the spring/summer colors.  What do you think?

We're talked about making a bunch of these selling them on etsy, but for now, we're just having fun creating.



Lastly, since I haven't done this in a LONG time, I wanted to post a picture of what I'm wearing today.  It's supposed to be a high of 65 degress today, which hasn't happened since last year and I'm taking full advantage of it.  I'm wearing a sun/maxi dress, sandals and bare legs!  I'm LOVING life today!  No socks, no heels, no pants... It's what I wish I could do everyday, but it's just not possible where I am...

Anyway, this is the outfit for today.

I hope you are having as good of weather, as we are, wherever you are today...

Have a great weekend!

Love the pin!! And, I have that same dress...got it in January at ON for less than $2!! Love it. I'm breaking out all of my springy weather gear, too.

Just wanted to say thanks for all of the support in the past few days. You really have a heart of gold and I appreciate it.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
