Delivering School Supplies to local Children’s Hospital with Champions For Kids SIMPLE Service Project #Champions4Kids #socialfabric

We just returned from our whirlwind trip to Las Vegas.  Not only were we able to FIX my son’s heart, but we were able to do a little shopping.  Walmart had SO many sales on school supplies, that we were able to snag some goodies to donate to the local children’s hospital.  (our whole shopping(…)

School’s starting soon!  We’ve been buying new school clothes, school supplies, crossing our fingers for good teachers….so much to do and SO little time.  It’s SO easy to get caught up in all the preparation and forget that there MAY just be kids in your own community that need a little help in gathering supplies(…)

Dreaming my Perfect Backyard for a End of Summer Bash #SummerWithSears #SearsPatio #CBias

My boys and I just went to visit my sister.  I don’t think I’ve been to her house in at LEAST two years (BAD sister)!  Well, while we were watching the kids play outside, we took a look at the backyard, and that’s where the daydreaming started. Really…do the farm animals need THAT much space. (…)

Laundry and the Hamper–CountingToTen

Laundry and the Hamper–CountingToTen

  MY “CountingToTen Moment” are those rare (or in my house, quite frequent) moments where someone (usually my kids or husband) does something SO outrageous that I have to STOP in my tracks….TAKE a deep breath….and COUNT TO TEN.   IF I don’t do that…I will probably start using my OUTSIDE voice in the house, children(…)

Family Fun Time with NCAA Football 2012 #CBias #NCAAFootball13

We have spent the last TWO weeks in North Carolina on vacation.  I can’t tell you how AWESOME it is to see my parents, brother and a sister, my cute nieces and nephew….and just lounge on the couch.  I haven’t done a DARN thing (totally said in my most Southern Accent).  Take a look at(…)

It has been a truly LONG year for our family.  As a family we moved from a small coastal town in Washington to Reno, NV (rain to sun).   I personally had a hernia repair and then my gall bladder taken out.  My husband was diagnosed with colon cancer and then had to have surgery on(…)

How to Make a Coat Rack Lamp-Western Themed Bedroom Part 3 #GELighting #CBias #SocialFabric

It’s been a while since I’ve worked on a project for Eli’s “Western Themed” bedroom. Let’s start at the beginning. Here’s a reminder of his bedroom now: ; Yes…he SHOULD be keeping that room MORE clean, but he knows that I’ll swoop in behind him and take care of it (I’m such a pushover!) We’ve(…)
