Thank Goodness!

It's been a frazzling week! {yes, I just made that word up} I am so glad it is over! I will have a busy weekend ahead! I will need some adult beverages to recover from all the frantic appointments I have! I will be attending my dear good friend Beth's wedding. Wedding you say? Yes, remember when I posted about planning a bridal shower? It wasn't much of a post, see here. Well, I hosted it at the Bride-to-Be's father's bar. I haven't posted about it because it was not so much a bridal shower as it was turned to a Bachelorette party in my opinion! lol I did take lots of pics and nothing turned out like it should. So to say the least, it was a fun event, but nothing that you would "write home to moma" about! If you get my drift!

Anywho, not only will I be attending this wedding, I will be styling the bride's hair, along with the three bridesmaids, and a flower girl. By myself! Eekkk! Say a little prayer for me! My husband is also in the wedding. The groom and my hubs are best friends. This wedding shall be a beautiful one. It's at a farm in the hills! I will def. take pics and post them for y'all! I'm off to get some last minute things and run myself ragged!

Where I'm from

TGIF Y'all! We made it and I'm thankful! It was a rough week! I have decided to start something new on Fridays! I want to share with y'all a little bit about where I am from. I will share a tid bit of information each week along with pictures. I want it to be a link up party so everyone can participate! All you do is post about this and then link up below! It's that simple! Here is mine for the week!

I am from a very small town.
Westminster, SC Population: Under 3,000
Where everyone knows each other and everyone is welcome!

These photos are taken around near where I grew up in Walhalla, SC. Walhalla is just next door to Westminster and we all still know each other. It's a great place to raise a family, everyone is friendly.




These are pictures of country roads that I drive on a daily basis. Next week I will show you some cool places to go if you ever visit!

 Link Up Each Week!!
Tell us about where you are from!

Fall Television

All the Fall Television Series are premiering this month!

My all time favorite: Vampire Diaries!
It started last week and I am so excited to see what happens this season!

A New Favorite: The Secret Circle
This show now comes on after Vampire Diaries. It started out interesting. Let's see if it will grab a hold of me like VD did! I like the characters and the plot, so we will see!

The story revolves around Cassie, a shy sixteen-year-old, who discovers that she is a witch and becomes a member of the Circle of witches of New Salem. She must face the manipulation of Faye, one of the witches; her new loyalty to Diana, her best friend and the leader of the Circle; and her love for Adam, Diana’s boyfriend.

These both come on the same night, Thursday! So tonight, I know what I will be doing! Considering that it has rained almost all week, I am staying in to do laundry and watch TV! maybe a little sewing in between!

Is there any particular shows that y'all like to watch in the fall?

My Hobbies

My hobbies consist of mostly sewing and light photography. The past few months I have been sewing 'taggies'. What are taggies you ask? Taggies are a small cloth/blanket that has ribbons on the edges. Babies love them for the texture and some even use them as security. I don't do it for profit, mostly for my enjoyment. And I like to have a challenge. My next project is a quilt. I'm still gathering my thoughts on it!

In the second block here you will also see a onesie I just recently did for a friend. I was proud of it.

Photo Phone Dump

I am starting something new. I've seen this on several blogs lately. I take pictures with my phone during the week and then, I share them with you each week. So, here is the first of many! ENJOY!


Big Brother Update!

Well, I'm a bit behind. The finale was LAST Wednesday. Sorry Y'all I'm a bit behind!

The final three were Porsha, Adam, and Rachel.
I wasn't totally thrilled that the final three were not what I expected at all. At the end of the game I was rooting for Kalia, she had upped her game and was doing well. Guess it wasn't as well as I thought. She didn't even make it to the final three.

They went through a bunch of competitions and the result was.....dun - dun - dun....

I really get annoyed by her but, I guess...I guess, I can get a little excited. YIPEE!

Her and Brendan can live 'Happily Ever After'. The End.

What did you think about the outcome?


Monday, September 19, 2011

And the Winner is...

Congratulations Southern Diva & Lindsey!

Southern Diva will be getting the Scarf from Old Navy and Lindsey will get the t-shirt necklace/scarf!

Thank you to all who participated!

I will do another giveaway soon so tell all your friends!
Thanks again y'all!
