Favorite Friday

I love this time of year! It is quite busy over here. I am getting ready for several craft shows coming up, Wurstfest is starting today, Kendall's birthday party than who can forget about the holidays. I went to Target today and they have already changed out Halloween stuff and Christmas decorations are going up!

Yesterday we had to Trick or Treat a little early because Wurstfest is going on and that kind of rules our life for the next 10 days. Here is a little peek of Cinderella and Snow White....



Such sweet little girls.

Can't decide...

I got extension put in today. I can't decided if I like them or I look like the runner up in a plus size, small town beauty pageant.:) So if you see me out and think I look absolutely ridiculous just let me know. OK?

Than came home and laid around a little than craved up our pumpkins



I carved a G in mine. Kendall and Jeff did a face and the other one just got a polka dot bow cause we were worn out!

And yes that is a dirndl in the background. I'm getting our dresses and lederhosen ready for Wurstfest. Only 10 days left!!

Laundry Room...do you have one? I read all these blogs about decorating your house and it seems like everyone has a nice laundry room. Maybe that's why I can't keep up with the laundry because I don't have one. I have a big closet outside, yes outside attached to the "little house" (1 bathroom, kitchen and a living area = little house) as we call it. At our old house we had a laundry room that use to be the bathroom before it was remodeled so it was perfect and pretty darn big. I miss that room so much. I could spend all day in these rooms. I think I'm going to run outside and put a lamp in my laundry "closet" maybe that might get me inspired to wash some clothes.:)

Sick Days...

We are a little under the weather. It seems like everyone is sick right now. I made the executive decision that we would stay home all day today and just rest. I've had some little projects I've been wanting to do so I finally got to them.

Here is our Family Rules...





I can not take credit for this cute one. I found it over at the Nesting Place. Just a painted canvas, some cute scrapbooking paper, rules, and mod podge. It is in my craft room. This would be perfect in a playroom.


Than my dry erase board...



This is just a 14X18 frame ($10 on sale at Hobby Lobby) and some fabric. Now I have a place for all my orders. I've been using post it...this is a little easier to keep up with.

This is why my house is a wreck...

As I was putting the last load of laundry on the chair, I wanted to explain why my house looks like this....




Yes, that is just ridiculous. My mom even came over and offered to fold and put them away. Talk about embarrassed (obviously not to embarrassed because now the whole blogosphere or at least the 5 people that read my blog know my husband has to sort through clothes in a chair before he can find himself some clean socks to wear to his new job).


I've been busy making things, really cute monogrammed things for you to buy. So go over to Ruffles and Rhinestones and look at my cute new stuff and buy your daughters teacher something for Christmas or buy yourself a koozie for that adult beverage you enjoy after the kids go to sleep.:)

Ribbons and Trophies

Last weekend we had our county fair. This year I decided that Ken would make some cookies and I would enter a picture. We made those peanut butter cookies with the kisses in them. Kendall's job was to take the kisses out of the wrapper and but them in a bowl.



Notice all the empty wrappers and only 3 kisses. She said Um, momma, I hate to tell you this but I ate some of the kisses. So cute!

Kendall "won" a white ribbon for her delicious cookies.

I entered this picture...





It was a little log cabin outside of Cripple Creek, Colo. I won Grand Champion with it in the adult division. I had to go get my trophy, when I got it Kendall looked at it and said, Momma why aren't you wearing any shoes and why do you have wings? She thought that was me on the trophy...this kid, I wish my waist was that tiny.





Here is just a couple of cute pictures



Kendall in one of my old belt buckles and her new boots. They are so cute the top is light pink with purple and hot pink stitching.
