reaching out

I am straying away from all the home and design talk and asking my readers to help me...

I am running in the St. Jude Half Marathon in Memphis on December 3rd.  As a way to give back, I, along with a few of my girlfriends, have committed to raise $2500 for St. Jude Children's Hospital.  I am blessed to have a healthy daughter, but there are families out there that aren't as lucky.  St. Jude is a godsend for them, treating children and saving their lives, and never once turning away a family for their inability to pay.  It is donations that keep this hospital going!

Our fundraising ends on September 30th so please donate today by clicking the link below!! No donation is too small to make a difference!

A million thanks!

This quote really made me stop and think about how I always forget to say thanks for all the blessings in my life.  I have an awesome life with great friends and a family I love to death. I should say thanks for them more often!

sorry for the unannouced break!

Sorry I have been MIA for a few weeks! It has been a crazy few weeks! We have officially moved out of our old house and into a furnished home, waiting for the new house to be completed. Fingers crossed, we will be in there in the next 6 weeks! The temporary home is close to our new home and we are getting acquainted with our new 'hood. My little one starts her new school today and I am hoping she loves it and we only have a few melt-downs in the car line!

I went through my phone to give you guys a  glimpse of my life in photos these past few weeks...

I got an IPad for my birthday...yay. And, I dropped it on the ground while we were moving...boo.

Luckily, the people at Apple are super nice and gave me a free replacement (one time only, the salesman kept repeating). I clutched the new one so hard when I left the store; there was no way I was going to let this one meet the same fate as the one above!

I have been working like crazy! Here's a snapshot of a cool tape trim with gold coins I found for one of my clients....

And, the new house has had a lot of progress! We have drywall up now!! 

They have also put up the Hardi-Panel on the outside (but no pics of that) and they are putting floors in this week!!! I will take some much better shots this week (as long as I can find my camera in the mess of boxes)!

Glad to be back!!!!
