I'm obsessing

This house has been on and off the market for a couple of years. Now it is in foreclosure. I am in love with it. Yes, it is out of my price range, yes, it only has one full bathroom, but I love it! This would be a perfect place for a retreat. It has a nice park behind it, it isn't far from Dallas, it has all the room that we need with only needing 2 bathrooms added and kitchen redo...I'm going to follow up with the city and see if it can even be zoned to do a retreat, and then just wait, and wait, and see if it goes down any... I would of course have to change my whole thinking from cabin to shabby chic or something...but hey, I can do that. Then we can build a smaller house for us to retire in....

I'd lose my butt if it weren't attached....

My dad used to tell me that ALL the freaking I beleive it. Since we moved I haven't been able to find anything...not that it happened in the move, I just don't have "places" to put things where I normally would... so I wanted to report that I have been on a roll today. First, I found a $17,000 check that I accidently threw in my scrap bin when I finally cleaned off the table last night. (If only I would have waited one day...) next I was on a tear looking for 3 other purple bag with my ipod in it, our passports, and my keycard for real estate. All were things that I could not for the life of me find... Well, I am happy to report I don't have anything missing now! I found my my car...right where I used keep it...only I looked there a couple of times, and couldn't find it, the bag, in my closet, and the passports..on my pseudo desk...right where I normally put them... I swear...I'm retarded... (no comments on that please!)

Barn Dance

Well, I have neglected to post pics of the barn dance. This was a blast. It wasn't too terribly bad to get set up and it went great! We had a huge crowd and I am betting the one in April will be even larger. Here are some pics that I wanted to share.
Here's some slow dancing:

Here is some Shottis (or however you spell it!)

Grab your pardner and dos i do to the cotten eye joe

Lance and Tonya struttin' their stuff (they are really good!)

What is country without line dancing??

A little hokey pokey..

A lotta funky chicken

A YMCA embarrassment..

more line dancing...

And finally, what the hell am I doing here? Am I wasted and singing "I'm too sexy for my shirt"??? (which we all know I'm NOT!!!)

Now you all see why I stay behind the camera instead of in front of it.

Thanksgiving crowd

ok, I know I am a little late in posting Thanksgiving pics... but here are some for you. We had quite a turnout this year, with the addition of my Uncle Ed (moms brother) and his family. It had the total count to 37. We managed to get a group shot before everyone left. Then I was recruited to take some..ok lots of family pics... it was a lot of fun and to see people ooh and aahh over the pics before I even edited them made me feel great! So here are a couple of others as well.

It's someones birthday today!

Well, it was one year ago that hippie chick introduced me to the world of wine and some of her good friends on a fabulous forty birthday trip to Pittsburg Texas. We had a blast. Well somehow, the year has rolled around again and it is already her birthday again.. Someone keeps aging...and someone doesn't... :)
Well hippiechick, I hope that 41 treats you as good as 40 did! We will be dining at one of faves for lunch...
