getting a little crafty...

I've had the little craft bug quite a bit lately and here's what has transpired from that...

 it starts out like this (with felt)!

 and then there's more, but this is on a small fraction of the amount of roses I made

 then I pained a pot, put glass beads/marbles in it and started adding the roses to the strofoam ball!

 and voila!

 and here's another one I made for a friend!

 my next "flower ball" I made with paper...

 here it is all covered in flowers!

 and finally hanging in my guest bathroom!

each was so easy and fun to make!!!

we can all dream

when (not if!) I have my dream home, it will definitely include a library.  an amazing library!  and of course a craft room.  I have a craft room now but I can't wait to have a huge craft room outfitted with tons of stuff and storage and of course organized.  the following pics are a glimpse of what perfection looks like...



(most pics found at one of my fav blogs and a few just by googling!)

Fat Ho

yes, that's right.  Fat Ho Burgers.  it's a new place in Waco and it's making quite a stir because of the name.  A friend and I attempted to have dinner there this past weekend but they were sold out!  I can't wait to go back and try the Supa Fly Ho...

What happens in VEGAS stay in VEGAS!

my little sister is turning 21 in July!  I'm so excited!  To celebrate, my mom, sister, sister's boyfriend and I are going to LAS VEGAS!!! My favorite place!  Besides gambling, of course, we want to do lots of other random, fun, crazy things!  Here's a few things we're checking into doing...

Peep Show, of course.  We definitely want to see a show and why not the famous Peep Show starring Holly Madison!

Who wouldn't want to check out this class?!?!  How fun and a good workout too!

Not sure if this is something we'll actually see, but it's a fairly popular show that's been around Vegas for over 20 years. 

If you're into science stuff this is for you.  It's an exhibition about the human body.  Looks really interesting!

If you want to get married in Vegas, they're are tons of wedding chapels to choose from.  I've been to a friend's wedding in Vegas and it was so fun!

Cirque du Soleil's LOVE at the Mirage takes audiences on a magical journey through the fantastical world depicted by the timeless music of the Beatles.  I definitely want to see this!

Sugar Factory.  Amazing.  I'll need all the sugar I can get for the all-nighters that will be happening.  Definitely going there!

There's soooo many more things I would love to do and see in Vegas.  I've been to Vegas many many times before and plan to go many many more times in the future so I can keep checking off things on my Vegas to do list!  Can't wait for July 2011 :)

13 years

"You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."

gotta love a good quote

“Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.”

I know it's been a while but...

apparently 2011 is not my year...

2010 was great.  Nothing too special, but just perfect.  2011 on the other hand - has not been that great. 

I came into 2011 with a nasty cold.  Right before Christmas I went to the doctor and got meds, but needless to say, they took a while to work.  Then, during the first week of the month while laying in bed, I thought my eye ball was going to pop out.  Seriously.  I was laying in bed when it felt like something was in my eye.  I rubbed it and all of a sudden it hurt really bad.  I got up and looked at it in the mirror and my eye ball was literally coming out of the side.  It totally freaked me out so I headed straight to the ER.  Needless to say, again, four hours later when the doc saw me, it was fine.  Of course. 

About a week later I woke up on a Saturday morning covered in hives.  You might detergent?  take a new med you were allergic to?  anything new?  Nope. Nothing.  I went to the Urgent Care Clinic near my house and got some steroids.  Thank goodness the hives were gone soon after. 

But it's not over.  Last week I was in a wreck.   Some guy hit me while on my way home from work.  It was horrible.  The worst part was that the air bags went off.  That was super scary.  And I'm still sore.  And stiff.  Still. 

Last but not least, I come home from work today and while sitting on the couch I notice a tooth is loose.  Really loose.  Like it could fall out at anytime.  Seriously!  What's next???

At least I'm alive, I suppose.  But really, I feel like this is not going to be my year.

Hope your's is better!

 Just gotta remind myself of this :)
