Guess what was waiting on me at lunch?

My new boots were delivered at lunch today... I love them! I'll have to be sporting them at the next dance...

I had seen them in a store in Arkansas but they didn't have my size. So I ordered them off the internet... They are camo sparkle... wahooo!!!!

Spring break pics

Well, we made it back safe and sound. Of course I couldn't post until I had pics. I have them so here ya go!

Here is a pic of our camper. Boy is it more fun than tent camping! I think the best thing is the fridge...well, and the heat, I'm not gonna lie!

Here is the 2 footed oak. It is one of the sites that we always take a picture at...hey, I need to go back and post all three years by this tree...yes, that will be later in the week...just to compare...

I'm officially a "skilled rider" now! The young ladies in the picture...well, lets just say they played "roll over..."

Here is our happy little family.... Tyler, Clint, Steve and Me!!!

us girls went to the diamond mine instead of four wheeling...our dreams were shattered when we didn't find any diamonds!

an old pic..


I don't know if I have posted this one before or not. Tyler and I went out to a neighboring town and had some fun with the camera. This one that I ended up liking. Not a prize winner I'm sure.. but I like it. I'm going back there in a couple of weeks to do an engagement shoot so I was going through my folder of pics from there... I'm excited to go back and play

Finally it is Wednesday!

Not only is it hump day, it is the last day of the week for me, the day that Tyler comes home, the day before we pull out to go to 4 wheeling, the day when we get to see both of our boys, the day...well, it is just a great day! Two families have already gotten to Arkansas. They got there last night late. We will be leaving out at 5 in the morning. Our hope is to get there by 10 just after breakfast! Shelley sent me a picture of our campsite. It looks it is just waiting on us to pull in and build a fire in the fire ring! That is their camper beside us. Oh, it is going to be a great time! The boys can hang out and just be boys and we can sit in a chair and relax...who am I kidding, we will be on ATV's from sun up to sundown!

Day 3...

This is day 3 of Tyler being gone. I just got off the phone with him and he is having a blast! The first day when they got off the plane they went to Santa Monica Pier and the Farmers Market. They got back to the hotel after 10pm their time. Yesterday was Disneyland and they were there from the time the park opened until it closed. He sounded really tired. Today is Universal studios and Sony. They won't get back to the hotel until after 8... He sounded really tired. I miss him. He has been so good about calling, posting on the blog and posting pictures out there to a snapfish account so all the parents could see them. I taught him well...he is putting all the pics on his hard drive so mom can pic thru there and edit an print ones that she wants... he is soo good to his mom!!! Well, if I get busy working the day will go by faster. He comes home Wednesday night... I can't wait to see him!

We have vacation on our minds!

We have been busy getting the camper ready, the four wheelers ready, the food bought, and the clothes packed... now we just have to wait! Until next Thursday. We have a short trip of 4 days planned. The boys are headed out to the separate spring breaks today and Saturday. Clint is skiing and Tyler is going to LA.. while we stay home and patiently wait for them to return so we can go! Here is the post from our trip last year... same people, same place, we are just all taking campers this year! I think it will be even more fun! I can't wait to ditch this place for a couple of days!

Craft Critique

I had to share the news! Craft Critique is having a huge blog candy!! The drawing will be on the 11th, so go and check it out. It is a fabulous resource so start surfing!

I know, 2 posts in one day... Don't get used to it... I'm lucky if I do 2 in one week... ok, ok, month... :)

The garden

Ok, I post like this is my garden and all...but it is not! It is truly my aunt and Steves garden. I just like to take pictures and credit... oh, and eat a couple of things that come out of it. I have never seen the progress of a garden before so going out every weekend and seeing what is popping up next is great! Lots of things are starting to come up. I ran (ok, I drove the golf cart) to get my camera and by the time I got back they had watered. NO, we haven't had any rain...thankfully Vicky is more religious about watering her garden than I am about watering my herbs..hence the reason there are pics of her garden and not my herbs that haven't surfaced yet because they would have to have water to grow!

My Dad

I haven't talked my dad since Monday. That is the longest I have gone in a long time. I try to call him daily. I really am lucky to have him around. I almost lost him a couple of years ago in a wreck. He fell asleep at the wheel. I remember getting the call from the hospital in Tyler that morning. We have your dad here and he is ok. What the heck? Ok to them and ok to me might be two totally different things! Tyler of course was there to go make that long drive with me. Thank goodness. I was shaking like crazy. When I got there and found out he only had a slight cut on the head I was so relieved. At that point, I didn't know how serious the accident really was, until a couple of days later and I went to see if his truck was salvageable. That was a little bit of a wake up call to me. I try to call him every day now, if not every other day. I have tried to take a more active role, but I always feel like it isn't enough. Here are some pics of his truck. Lord only knows how he made it alive. There was not one inch on that truck that didn't have something wrong with it.

Thankfully he is still around to do this with Tyler on occasion...

I'm a few weeks behind...

Ok, so I haven't blogged's not like many people are looking on here anyway...they have given up hope on I am no pioneer woman! I'll get over it. Anyways, lets see, what has happened in the last few weeks? Lets see Ty had Legacy awards. He didn't want to go, threw a fit, I made him because I thought the teachers nominated him for an award...come to find out it wasn't that...he was nominated for Class Favorite. The students voted on it and he was VERY excited... he didn't win but he didn't care. He was just thrilled to be nominated. Here are a couple of pics from that night.

Then last weekend he competed in a Destination Imagination contest with a couple of kids at school. They will be going to the state competition in Houston on April 4th. Here is a pic of his team

So, that is enough about Tyler. I haven't really been doing much. Selling furniture on craigslist, moving my aunts furniture over. It is nice! Trying to save money to pay off debt. In this economy who knows if they will have a job or not so the less debt the better! The garage will be built either this week or next. I will be uber excited when it is finished! We have been shopping around for all the stuff to build the bathroom inside the garage. Trying to stay as cheap as we can... Hopefully it will all turn out well! I know that we are excited to see some progress down there. I'll of course post pics when it is completed!
