Paint by number...not.

I decided to get a little painting done over the last week. I usually paint before I place my furniture in the room for the first time. However, since my husband was tasked to buy a house without my help. I decided to take my time on painting.

The dining room is one of the rooms I look at when sitting in the living room. So of course I had to do it next. I hope you enjoy the difference, paint is very inexpensive and yet does wonders for a room.

Have a great day everyone and God Bless

Boo'd and loving it.

I know this is a little late but I love the story. Our neighbor, Helen and Steve, boo'ed us. This consisted of a pumpkin, a sign for the window saying we were boo'ed, and instructions to boo.

I laughed when I saw the pumpkins, because I had been making an issue of placing a pumpkin on our steps. I had put my foot down because of two things, hot. I thought our pumpkin would start melting and hence make one big mess. Second....not yet October 1st.

Steve and Helen, decided to boo us on October 1st. They of course had to place the pumpkin on our steps after midnight. That's what they did. I saw Steve, in my minds eye, creeping up the steps like the Grinch that stole Christmas, but with leaving something instead of taking something. Was he worried we would hear him, actually he never got busted.

I than saw the instructions and started my plan to boo someone else. After all was said and done we actually saw the "we've been boo'ed" sign hanging in 14 windows. What fun. I can't wait to see what will happen next year.

As always, God Bless and remember you don't have to do much to make a difference.

I was thinking.

Sometimes you just have to eat cake, cake and more cake. I really hate the talk about too much sugar in our diets. Listen. What is life without a little or a lot of sugar?

Throughout our lives things are taken away from us. Parties all night long, too much drinking, and fatting food. Than swearing, which I really didn't like in the first place. Sometimes just being mean; which many people do deserve a good tongue lashing from time to time.

So now they want us to give up sugar. Well once again I must protest. I love cake, cookies and other sugar laddened things, and I forgot to mention chocolate. So this is my promise, I plan to eat and be merry. Before you think that's my only food group intake, I plan to balance it out with fruits and veggies.

So there, I said it. Freedom at last from THOSE people who say I must be told for my own good, what to eat. I am a big girl, not big in size, but big in brains. So don't tread on my cake...that's all I'm saying.

Have a great day and God Bless.

When Fun Rules.

The family has a Christmas party every year. Over the years we have thrown, what we consider, theme parties. This one year we dressed like our nationality. Even though others considered us silly for dressing up, we had more fun than the effort it took to come up with the costumes. By the way the outlaws, who are the in-laws, were also in full dress. Good sports all.

We found that everyone, had so much fun seeing us like the characters we picked, that the party was so much more colorful. Over the years, our nieces and nephews have great memories of the, so called, silly aunts and uncles. And I might add respected for our self confidence in wearing and maybe having more fun for our age.

What I am trying to say is having fun at any age, is what makes the family great. We can laugh at each other and still be respected. Because, we do everything with dignity. Something our parents taught us.

As always, thanks for stopping by.

Once a bridesmaid...six times more a bridesmaid.

Good Morning...I once said that the first time I had to appear in a wedding, that was going to be my last. But being part of a large family, proved impossible to get my wish. Maybe I was a little cute due to the fact that they kept asking, or should I say telling me, that I was going to be in the next wedding.

I chose this picture to show how young and pretty we all were. I framed my sister and me to show you one thing I have talked about before. Her beauty, unlike my complaining about it, I was truly proud of her. In fact I wanted to be like her. I have to say that looking at the old pictures just proved that maybe I was a little hard on myself. Giving the fact that she was older, had a job, and by the way had a lot more taste than I did.

But this is my point. Someone to look up to isn't all bad. Even when we find the person way to hard to measure up to. But because of her and time, she was and is, a great role model. I didn't become her, why, because I am me. And in the end, I'm loving this beautiful sister. When we stand together we are equal in mind and love for each other and that is the best part of sisters.

God Bless all those around me and visit my little blog.

The Four of Us.

When I first saw this picture at a very young age, I thought to myself..."great no brothers" it was just the four of us. The thought that we were given the opportunity to have our picture taken with Mom and Dad alone was such a coo.

As years went on and Doreen became more and more beautiful and I got more and more gawky, I noticed that at this one time in life, I was as cute as her. Little did I know that me growing out of gawkiness, and I did, would open a new world of beauty.

This is just a start to my journey with a beautiful sister. As I write, you will either find humor in my travel or truly understand. She is not just beautiful on the outside and my journey opened me up to the person I love and call sister.

God Bless my Family and Friends
