Sasha doesn't have BRACES!

Sasha is so GORGEOUS! Look at that pretty smile!

(It was nerd day at his office)

Today was a monumental day in our lives. Sasha had her braces removed after having them on for two years. I love her pretty smile. That smile is worth $6,100 bucks....although I prefer to think of it as her million dollar smile. Now....let's hope she remembers to wear her retainer like she is supposed to so it will not have all been in vain.

An Exciting thing is happening today!

I can't tell you yet, but a wonderful and exciting thing is going to be happening this afternoon. Check back later for pictures and a new post.

Monday Moment

One of my beautiful Brazilian friends has this thing on her blog that I just love. Every Monday, people post something about their Monday....good, bad, or indifferent. She challenged us to write something on our own blogs, then link it to hers.

Here is my Monday Moment. This morning started out like most other Mondays...wake up at the butt crack of dawn to make sure that my teenager gets up and out the door for Seminary. Then I took a shower, then went down to welcome the little one to my daycare. When my son got up for school he asked me if he could make my breakfast for me. Of course, I said YES!. Jayson is 12 and loves cooking...whether it be for himself or someone else. I was so tickled that he would want to make my breakfast.

So, how could I have anything other than a fabulous day? I love him. He is a great boy. Someday he will make a great husband.

Online Tutorials

I have been spending a lot of my free time lately on the computer watching online tutorials of just about everything. Sewing, quilting, re-purposing things, organizing, name it. I think I have found a new love. I LOVE sewing but don't spend enough time doing it. It is such a pain getting the stuff out, getting everything ready, then having to put it away so that we can eat off the dining room table. Well....even though these tutorials haven't solved all my sewing problems, they have inspired me to get off my keester and use the fabric that I have stashed under my bed for some awesome things. So, the next time that you have a few free moments....get on the computer and learn something. It is never too late to learn something new. If you want to see some of what I have been learning, then go to

My Old Time Love

When I was a little girl, I used to LOVE watching "The Price is Right". I mean, LOVED it. I used to go to school year around, so every 9 weeks, I had 3 weeks off. This was a perfect way to watch a lot of TV. Well, I also loved playing with these hard plastic animals. One day, I decided to name this cow "Bob Barker". read correctly....! So, after many years of play and being chewed on my my crazy chihuahua, my Bob Barker still lives. I found him at my mom's house a few weeks ago. It brought back a billion memories. So, I proudly present to you....Bob cow.
