The Weekend Visit

One of my best girlfriends, Jen came for a visit this weekend from Tejas. We had a great time! So much to do in just 2 days....but, we had a ball. I really enjoy her and appreciate her driving all the way up here to see me. She brought her sweet son, "Smiley" (my nick-name for him) and he was the best baby. He just turned one and is the cutest thing. Here he is on his first birthday - such a doll!

Here is a fun find at my favorite antique store in "Oklahoma's antique capitol". I love this grapevine pumpkin, it's a nice large size - and I am thinking of adding a really cute fall ribbon to it. I can't wait to get all my fall decor out.

I'll be darned if I didn't take any pics of us! We both don't enjoy having our pics taken, so it's not that big of a deal, but we should have done it anyway. Miss you sweet friend!

I love, love, love etsy. I browse the site a lot and really enjoy buying handmade goods - it just doesn't get any better. I have purchased quite a few things from there.

One of my favorite's is a little plaque that I keep right outside my door. It has really cut down on all the afternoon doorbell ringing...However, I do have my limits. I won't be outfitting my kids in any of these any time soon - what. the. heck?

Hi Ms. Sassy!
Oh, I need a sign! My neighbor always comes over just as I get my son down for a nap. She is a sweet 83 year old woman, but I don't know how to tell her not to come at nap time.

Holy Cow! That T shirt!!!! I can't think of a single situation where putting that t shirt on would be funny :0

I have never really trolled etsy. I guess I need to sit down after school gets started and take a look. Im always afraid I'll spend too much money.

From your Texas "White Trash Diva",

~ Humility ~

Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father
in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness, when all
around and about is trouble.
