A special request......

Meet Hilary, Brinson and Luke!
Aren't they beautiful?
Hilary is a dear friend of mine from my younger years...HA!!!
We lost touch and have reconnected on FACEBOOK!!!!
This is one reason that I really LOVE facebook! I cried and cried when she found me!
Luke (the little guy) will be having a kidney transplant on Aug.4 and Hilary will be the donor!!!!!
Please pray for this sweet family! Please pray for the actual surgery, for the Dr. and nurses and for a speedy recovery!!!! Pray that there will be no complications!!!
I so believe in the power of prayer.....thanks for joining me!

She's crafty......

Meet my "new" table!!!
I got her FREE on the side of the road in someone else's trash!!!
Peyton cried and cried! He said I was going to go to jail because I was stealing! HA!
How do you explain that one?
She was really dirty and pretty old, but all she needed was some TLC!!!
We sanded her, primed her, painted her and prettied her up!!
I LOVE bead board and I loved the style!
I had a vision and I knew right where I wanted to put her!
She is now black with cute scrapbook paper and some funky knobs!!!

I think she cleaned up well!
Do you like my new lamp?
I got it half off at Hobby Lobby and glued this adorable HUGE flower on it!
Auburn says it looks like a head of cabbage growing on it, but I love it!
I think my little reading corner is super cute!
I will be adding ribbon to my lamp....I need another cute knob....and I need to put my families picture in the frame!!
Any suggestions???? I'm open for ideas!!!
I love turning trash to treasures!!!
Don't mind me if you see me digging through your trash!!!

Summer is flyin by....

It's been another VERY BUSY week!!!
Peyton finished up his swim lessons!
He really learned a lot!
He ended his lessons by jumping off of the big diving board!!!
He could almost swim across the pool with some assistance!
Go Peyton!
Auburn and I went on a date! We got to see The Proposal!! It's a great movie!!! It may be a chick flick, but the guys around me were laughing just as hard as the girls!!! We really enjoyed it and we definitely recommend it!!!

Auburn's little brother, Aaron, turned 29!
Happy birthday Aaron!!!!
We met the fam at Buca di beppo's for dinner!!!!
This was our first time to Buca's and we LOVED it!!!! I loved the eclectic atmosphere and the fun music!!! It's a good thing I'm NOT Italian....I really would be as big as a house if I ate like those people!!! How do they do it????

Garet and our cute little nephew, Cullen. He's getting so big and he is on the move!!!
Watch out world!!!
We sat in the Pope room!!!
We had dinner with the Pope...literally...HA!!!
Me, Auburn, James, Angela, Dorothy, Aaron, Cullen and Chasity.
If you think about our family, please continue to keep Auburn's mom Dorothy in your prayers. The cancer is progressing and she just really doesn't feel good! We just try to enjoy each visit that we have with her!
It's a picture of me hangin in the bathroom at Buca's!!!! SEXY...HA!!!!
Guess what????
It rained 1 inch here today and it's ONLY 90!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!

1 box instant vanilla pudding mix
2/3 cup veg. oil
4 eggs
1 can Dr. Pepper
1 tsp. vanilla
Combine first 3 ing., beating with the mixer until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each egg. Add Dr. Pepper and vanilla, mix well. Pour batter into 3 9inch greased and floured pans. Bake in oven at 325 for 35 min. Cool before removing from pans. Frost!
1 pkg. cream cheese
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. cocoa
1tsp. vanilla
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 c. chopped pecans
Mix well and frost that baby!
(Wish I had a pic., BUT my family devoured it and I almost didn't get a piece! Not kiddin!)
This cake doesn't have a strong Dr. Pepper taste, but it's O SOOOOO GOOD!!!
I'm a pepper...your a pepper....wouldn't you like to be a pepper too???

Please don't think I'm a flake!!! I really had intentions on baking all summer and making some extra money!!!! There has just been ONE problem......I haven't been home at all this summer and there is NO end in sight! What ever happened to LAZY DAYS OF SUMMER???? and where in the heck did June go????
I will most likely start my baking days up again when school, stay tuned!!!!
(Does anyone know why my spaces don't stay when I go to post??? So frustrating!!!)

Our little place....

We have found the perfect place to play this summer and it's FREE!!!
Today we had the whole place to ourselves!
It was quiet, restful, relaxing and surreal!!!
All we needed was a hammock!
They snorkel!

They build sandcastles and have mud fights!

They catch fish with buckets and nets!
These were small! They caught some big ones today!
We played with babies.....
and visited!!!
I love summertime!!!
(O...I got a picture of him yall!!! we had the place to ourselves besides one creepy man! We had ourselves talked into him being a serial killer! But, we are all alive and kicking!)
Please disregard the triple chins here! I'm pouting!
I'm pouting because I broke my favorite sunglasses!!! POO!!!
And I had an accident and gave the girls a show!!!!
I slipped down the hill and fell FLAT on my back! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry!! So, I decided to laugh with everyone else!!! Laugh hysterically!!! I fell, but my camera didn't go into the lake and I didn't spill my drink!
It was a good day with a little excitement!
