a quick plug

Some of you have asked where I got the quote that is above our bed in our new bedroom, so I thought I would do a quick plug for my latest venture! I am an independent demonstrator for Uppercase Living. Essentially, Uppercase Living is a catalog based company that has lots of really neat "wall words" that are burnished onto your wall or any other smooth surface. They have a ton to choose from out of the catalog, or you can create your own using lots of different fonts and colors. This is what I did to make the quote above our bed. Check out to see some other examples. If you are interested, email me at and I can give you a password to log-on to the Customer Corner so you can create your own expression. I also do Open Houses where you invite your friends and I can show you how it works in person (and you get goodies for being a hostess). I can also take individual orders if you would rather do that. Or, if you just want to check out a catalog, let me know and I can send you one. Happy browsing!

our new crib

We are done!!! The drywall dust has settled, the paint has dried, the chaos that was my house for the past 3 weeks is now under control. I am pleased as punch with the outcome. I have to give mad props to my hubby for doing all the really non-fun things. He did an AMAZING job! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! May I introduce to you the grand re-opening of the Marshall's basement!

a hot mess

We are knee-deep in our basement remodel project. Thought I would share a few pics of the process. I can't wait to see the finished product. I will post more pics when we are all done and cleaned up!


We are DONE!!!

so many men, so little time...

My poor niece Lyndsay is going to have a hard time picking a suitor from all of the darling babies that have been born in the past year. Here is a look at some of the potentials...

Bachelor #1 is Ayden with his devilish good looks and charming personality. Always picture perfect and ready to take on the world. He enjoys longs walks in his stroller and his favorite food is milk.

Bachelor #2 is Owen, a real go-getter with upper management written all over him. Even from birth, he was very strong, yet very sensitive because he likes to cuddle. Also, enjoys gazing into your eyes, or maybe it's just the ceiling fan.

Bachelor #3 is James. The boy next door. Literally. He lives 3 doors down from our bachelorette. Comes from a good family and enjoys playing in the cul-de-sac in his wagon. You other boys better watch out because it's pretty obvious Lyndsay already has James as one of her top picks!

Bachelor #4 is Sawyer, an older man who recently was promoted to big boy status when he began walking a few months ago. He walks on the wild side once he starts drinking the dew, but always a guaranteed good time with this bachelor!

Bachelor #5 is Jack. While Jack hasn't exactly made his arrival into the world just yet, we are confident that he will be a smart, charming, handsome young fellow.

Bachelor # 6 is Baby Criss. (Sorry no pic, I will post one when he gets here) Also not scheduled to arrive until August. Due just 2 days after Lyndsay's 1st birthday, Baby C could make his debut just in time to celebrate with the birthday girl. Who knows what could happen if they share the same birthday...that was my dad's pick up line to my mom, and they just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary..
