Drum roll please...


I finally took some pictures of my room! LOL..I have to admit it's only one side of the room. The rest of the room is still a sight you would rather not see!! I had so much trouble downloading this one picture that I was about to give up! I am glad I didn't. So, now you can see the room I have been talking about for over a month now! Here is my bed. That sad looking thing on it is a rabbit I have had forever! The comforter is the one I bought at the yard sale for two dollars. The chair next to my bed was from the same yard sale and it was five dollars. I draped the doll throw over it to give it a more Victorian look. The drawing above my Thomas Kinkade border was done by Mackenzie for my graduation. It's portrait of me and it looks identical to the photo she copied it from.

LOL...How do you like my flash? Oh well, this gives you an idea anyway. The dresser doesn't look that clean maybe because it is not.'s the most used piece of furniture besides the bed in my room.

I hope you all enjoyed this much anticipated post.

Happy fall a few days late.

Can you believe fall is already here? It's quite unbelievable. October starts next week and then there is only a few small weeks before November is upon us. Which means Thanksgiving and of course the next day is shopping day! Just a few weeks later Christmas will be here for which I am already thinking about gifts.

I have a small announcement to make. My day home is officially being advertised. Now, I just need people to be interested and give me a ring, which hasn't happened yet. I ask you to pray for my day home and that the right people will call.

Working as a librarian at the Christian school has proven to be so much fun! I love helping the kids pick out books and seeing their facial expressions when they find a book they just have to read! I was recently told that I can decorate the library with seasonal decorations and such. I am so excited!

Also, for the library I have to read a whole lot of different books to make sure they are appropriate for the school. It's fun because I love to read but I get overwhelmed thinking about all those books I need to read. Although, I do have lots of help. Other teachers are reading some and my mom and sister have volunteered (or gave in to my begging one or the other.) lol

Okay, I have to go for now.

Here's the low down....

Okay here's the story. You may be wondering why I haven't posted pictures of my bedroom yet. Well here it goes the awful, but plain truth. It's a mess!! lol....Yup that about sums it up.

I should have taken pictures of it weeks ago but I didn't have my computer and I'd rather not have pictures sitting in my camera just waiting to be downloaded and taken up much needed space. So, I am going to try my best to get my room suitable looking so I can show off my bedroom.

You may have noticed I have changed my blog look. I love my pumpkin header!! It looks so fallish don't you think? I took it this past Saturday when we went apple picking. My profile picture is still a work in progress. (Roll of the eyes) I really have no idea why every time I download it on blogger it looks like my face went through a stretcher. lol...

I need to do a cheap plug right here and announce my best friend Susie just started a blog the other night and already is very faithful in posting. She's much better than I am. lol Please check it out. I know you will enjoy it.

Okay, I guess that's about it for now. I will try to clean my room soon so you can see the pictures I am making you die of anticipation for. lol

Apple Picking with Patrick

Before Patrick went home on Sunday we took him Apple picking on Saturday. He enjoyed sitting on Uncle Aaron's shoulders and taking bites of an apple that my parents gave him.

My mom was taking the picture.

Here she is.

I will post more later. Oh, I added a couple new blogs to my blog roll. Make sure you check them out!! Until next time...

Patrick went home today:(

"Here's Patrick watching football."

Thought I would be nice and download at least one picture. lol...My PC was taking forever to download so that's why I only have one on here. Gotta run!

Did you miss me?

Sorry about how long it has taken me to write a new post. I have been really busy. I will be running out the door again in about an hour.
So, I really don't have that much time to give you one of my famous rambling posts. lol... As you can see my other PC is back up and running. So I now can show pictures again.
I will be posting some of my room as soon as I have time to take some. This picture is of me and my nephew Patrick on Labor Day. Isn't he doll?
Hope to post more pictures soon.

A run down of the last week.

Yes, I agree. Not the most exciting title I could come up with. But, hey I am tired!! lol...I know, I know. What else is new, right? I really have had a long week though...honestly. I have!

Thursday night, we got Patrick (my nephew) again! It's so much fun. We are enjoying him just like the last time. I wish I could show all of you his adorable face but I can't. Yes, my other PC is still not in my grasps. But, if you'd like to take a glimpse at his adorable self you can check back in my late June early July posts. lol...

Friday morning nice and early, I got up for my first day back to the Christian school. I was so excited to go back! Seeing the building made my heart do a flip flop. You may think I am being over dramatic but I am not. That school is so special and I am so excited I am part of it. Most of the children knew who I was but their were a couple of new comers who won my heart instantly.

This week I will be working there Thursday (helping out in the kitchen and library) and Friday being a chaperon on a field trip that the whole elementary is going too. Oh, yeah I also got to look around the library the other day. I didn't work in there 'cause I was too busy that day. But I was able to look around and even take a few books home to read and make sure they are suitable to keep in there. Isn't that cool?

Update on my room... I found a nice folding circle shaped chair at a yard sale on Saturday for five dollars. The color is blue and really didn't fit my decor. So when I took it home and found a place in my room I draped a doll throw over it and now it looks really nice. I also found a full twin comforter set at the same yard sale for two dollars!! My mom washed it for me and it looks great in my room!

I hope your Labor day weekend went well. We had a small get together today at our house. A few families from our church came over for food and fellowship. What can I say? We are Baptists! Yeah, lame joke but hey I have heard it all my life. It was bound to wear off on me. (One thing us Baptists can do is eat and fellowship) It sounds like we are huge and don't know how to keep our mouths shut! lol...Sorry I couldn't resist.

Okay, if you couldn't tell I am tired and in need of sleep. I'll try to post a little sooner next time but no promises!! Good night!
