I'm Back

Boy, it has been crazy busy for me lately. Work has been busy and I've been putting in extra hours. In the middle of that I had to squeeze in a week off to drive to Utah for my niece's high school graduation. That was a lot of fun and I'm really glad hubby and I could go. We also took my mom, sister and nephew with us.

When we got back from Utah we had two days with the contractor fixing the holes he made in our house to hunt down a water leak. Hopefully the leak he found was the only leak. Now our house is put back together, but for some crazy reason I decided the living room needed to be spruced up. That means I made a trip to the hardware store and bought paint. I thought one gallon would be enough because I was only doing 3 walls and two of them have windows. Well, two and a half gallons and two days later my living room is painted. I don't have any pictures to share of the room because it's still a disaster, but as soon as I get the furniture back in place and the pictures back on the wall I'll snap some pictures.

Today I thought I would share a picture of my niece that graduated and her mom and another one of the table decorations I made.

Here is the lollipop center piece I made. I had no idea how many suckers it would take! That thing is heavy!

Almost forgot, we also made her a money lei (is that how you spell it?).  We had a lot of fun in Utah, but I'm happy to be home and able to sleep in my own bed.


  1. Cute center piece...and as someone who has more shoes then there are days in the year....GREAT SHOES :)

  2. Those center pieces are so nice. I am going to lift your idea and make them for Halloween. Definitely one of my favorite center pieces I've seen. TFS. Ana
