Welcome 2014!

Finally!  I am sitting at the computer writing a blog post.  It is certainly a long time coming.  I can’t believe I let the blog go for so long!  I have made a promise to myself to bring the blog back to life in 2014. 

Even though you didn’t see me (us) this past year, we have been watching and reading all about you!

Laura, Mom and I

Mom even had a chance to meet a local blogger!  Be sure to say hi to Debbie from!

Of course we spent hours looking at tablescapes and furniture redo’s, upcycled clothing and mod podged surfaces.  We poured over lots of recipes and household tips and along the way Pinterest became a way of life!

Interesting stuff happened in our lives too!  After a two year search Laura found the perfect home.


She and her husband moved in this fall, just after their son Christopher married his beautiful bride Jessica.


  We even found time to sneak in a cruise to Bermuda in the midst of all that! 


Mom and Dad celebrated 57 years of marriage. 


Nothing can slow these two down! 

Mom kept busy with fundraising for the Dietrich Theatre.


and decorating for different functions at church.

Not to mention attending her weekly Bible study with the best group of ladies you could ever hope to meet!

2013 has been a year of change for me in that I got rid of 80 pounds!  I actually feel like an average woman nowadays and can sit in airplane seats with ease.


There you have it…a mini update on our lives!  Going forward I will try to do better and keep those posts coming!

Gone to write more posts!


P.S.  I thought we would link up to some parties to say hi and spread the word that we are back! 

Please check them out and let them know you were there!
