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....

My dad used to tell me that ALL the freaking time...now 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 things...my 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 keycard..in 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!)

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.

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.

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...
