Found it

I FOUND it.  The charger that is.  If it was a snake it would have bit me.  It was get this ...just where I left it the last time I used it... I thought I had looked there, but when I went tonight I was there.  YEAH charging now and you can see what I got in the mail on Monday.  I have a mission to look for color and pattern this weekend.  See you then!


Oh where oh where can my camera charger be? Oh where oh where can it be? I have pictures to post, but my camera says I have no battery. Truth be told I knew it was running low. Now in which pile of stuff to file, pack, toss, donate could it be? You know what I'll be doing this weekend. Right hunting for my charger. Have a blessed weekend and I'll post my pictures on Monday.

my wonderful husband made the most excellent coffee this morning with a hint of coconut. Yum He went with his sister Linda into a TJ Maxx and bought a bunch of different flavors to try. I know I'm spoiled rotten, but my coffee is just not the best.

The story behind the proposal. It was Christmas eve day (Michael's favorite holiday) and my son (Ethan) and I drove down to Salem to celebrate with the Taylor's (Mike's sister's family). Michael and I went to Tokyo Express for sushi lunch. When we were done he said let's ride up to the Mill Mountain star. It was cold and snow was on the ground. We are looking at God's beautiful creation and he says to me that he has something more beautiful and I look down and there is an open ring box and he said Marry me? I say YES put it on. I kiss him and he says we have a lot to work out and I said yes, but not today. I of course call the key players on the phone on our drive back to Salem to celebrate with his family.

So I'm trying to snap more pictures when I'm out and about.
I'm celebrating and getting ideas down for use at a later date.
This was on the wall of our hotel and I just loved the pattern.
This was in Virginia Beach and I loved the shapes and of course the pink.

My husband took this with a panoramic feature on my camrea. It's beautiful.

Goal and Love Birds

My goal for this New Year in my life is to blog daily during the week so here it goes. I’m so excited to be the recipient of the wonderful love birds quilts from Em. I found that out a few days ago to be honest. Yesterday was all about me day and that took over my blog. Well a day or so after I found out about the Love Bird quilt I had gone to my desk in the back where I work and found a box and do you know what the wrapping paper had on it? Yes love birds so I had to take pictures and God Winks continued. Well look at this box – it’s a surprise wedding gift. I’m to take it to China with me and open on November 1st. She has this gift all planned out. So my philosophy of stretching things out like my birthday or wedding is continuing. I take a late well wish and say oh it’s continuing. Look for the joy in life. So you know what I’ll be posting around November 1st the pictures of said gift. Have a fabulous weekend everybody.

Birthday 2010 part 2

Flowers from my AWESOME husband
Here they are with the balloon.

Birthday 2010

It's my birthday today. I'm CELEBRATING!
We have an employee lunch at work today and I've been here 15 years so I'll be recognized. Mike is in California at a conference, but I had an e-card at 12:01 and a phone call as soon as he got up CA time that is. My Face Book page is off the hook with all the birthday greetings. Being a single Mom so long I take this one day and run with it. God has been winking all day. It started yesterday with Em and continued with Alicia bringing me my balloon and banana this morning. Start a fun tradition like that with someone you love a BFF and Alicia qualifies for sure. Oh the e-cards - check out Dayspring e-cards they are a Christian company and free.

Birthdays and Presents and God is Winking

I'm so excited as my birthday is Thursday this week. The wishes on Facebook have started. I commented on this post and my girlfriend replied that I'm the dear friend that she made this for. I'm so excited. Em's stuff is amazing so if you don't follow her do. Love you Em thanks for my God Wink!

Have you ever noticed that frequently the word verifications relate to what you posted?  It might not be the exact words, but if you glance at what you are to type it amazing sometimes.  I'm thinking how did they know I was going to say that.  Is it a program that takes a word in my comment and then tosses in extra letters for security?  Not sure, but it's fun to check them when I write a comment.

New Sandals

So I had a road trip this weekend. I went to see the best friend I've had the longest. Wouldn't you know we didn't take any picture of the two of us, but we shopped until we dropped. Just check out these sandals that screamed at me at every store we visisted and the price unfortunately the same everywhere. So I finally gave in. They are very comfortable and Kimberly tells me they make my foot look slimmer. I had no idea it was fat. LOL Have a great day everyone.
