I start out this post with an awesome sketch from Cardabilities. They are still celebrating their birthday with prizes to be had. So, get over there for further details.




On another note, I celebrated my 37th birthday on Tuesday. 37??? Really??? Where has the time gone? This is a photo I took with my cell phone. This is straight out of the camera phone...un retouched. Angle and lighting is everything. That's all I'm sayin'. I wanted to make sure I actually got a photo...you know...for future reference to see just how bad TIME is to me. - LOL.

I had an excellent birthday. I started the day off with an extra 2 hours with my darling children due to a two hour delay :) Then, my Mother and I went shopping...to several places. Needless to say, I'm not a shopper. I don't enjoy it and if I'm shopping for anything apparel-related...I'm not at all thrilled. It always looks sooooo much better on the skinny hanger. Enough said.

Upon returning from our shopping trip, I made myself the Earthquake Cake that I soooo adore - yum! I whipped up four loaves of bread and proceeded to prepare marinated, grilled elk for dinner, along with cheesy potatoes and salad.
My Mother and darling husband cleaned up after the cake and ice cream. Ahhhh....life is good.


While my parents were pulling out of our driveway yesterday, I was on the phone with Charlie discussing the details of the demolition of our bathroom.

Day 1:

I took everything out of the bathroom, organized and relocated it. I then started ripping out everything I could without Charlie's help. Charlie returned home at around 5:45 and proceeded to prepare the plumbing items for removal. We took out the sink/counter/tub before we ate dinner at 8:30 p.m. We were all exhausted, but happy so much was accomplished.

Day 1 - BEFORE

Day 1 - AFTER


Today's schedule entails removal of wooden walls and whatever else I can get down by myself :) Oh, and just so you know...OLD glue does NOT smell pretty.

Thanks for stopping by!
