New Layout and Social Media

I am very excited about my new layout! It actually looks like a real blog now. I am very pleased! I want to say thank you to Lynsey for all her help designing my new blog layout. I found her on Etsy. If you are thinking of doing any kind of revamping I would highly recommend her. I've been thinking for some time about making some changes and after lots of thinking I decided it was time to move forward and clean up my online persona all over the place. First up was to visit all the sites I currently use as social media and decide which ones I wanted to stay on and update and which ones I wanted to give up. Of course, this is all personal preference and time spent online on social sites for me is just for fun but since all the people don't use all the sites all the time I wanted to pick out the ones I personally find appealing. The ones I use, if not on a daily basis, then more than others. I did however decide to monetize my blog. After all who couldn't use a bit of extra …

I juiced up my iPhone and I love it!

Do you ever buy anything and then think, why in the world didn't I get this sooner? Well, that's what has happened with this juice pack I bought for my iPhone. I am always plugging my phone in to charge and I saw some buzz about these juice packs for more battery power. Being tired of always having to watch my phone for power and seeming to always be plugging it in I decided to try one. My cover I purchased for my smart phone when I bought it had broken a bit on the edge and was looking a little worse for wear so I was in the market for a new cover anyway. I went ahead and paid the extra for the juice plus since it wasn't that much and gives you an additional couple of hours. I have barely had to plug my phone in at all lately and I've stopped worrying about whether or not I need to charge before I leave home or the office.  It's a nice heavy case and should fit tightly. I read a bit that there are some knockoffs floating around the web that do not fit well so, as…

A blue dress on a hot day

The weather lately has been rather cool but the last few days have been sweltering, muggy hot. I finally scheduled my vacation and I am so hoping for pool weather so I can wear my new swimsuit. It looks like summer will be almost over before my toes dip into the pool. I've been trying to get some things done which mostly have been online or indoors or it's been too cold. I've been updating all the sites I like so if you decide to follow or connect to me I will have some updated content. Since sites are so easy to access through my iPhone I am hoping to be able to keep up. Getting things done I have been putting off so it is feeling good to get some things accomplished. Rather than thinking any more  I have made decisions and following through which not only feels good but feels awesome is more like it!

Summer Strawberries on a thick waffle...OMG, YUM!

See what happens when I am left alone to fend for myself for dinner. A few too many calories but oh so good! I hadn't purchased waffles for quite some time but while walking through the grocery the other day I spotted these Ego Thick and Fluffy waffles. I'm not crazy about toaster waffles due to the fact that they are so skinny but these are now a new favorite. Toast them a golden brown, add fresh strawberries along with warm Mrs. Butterworth's syrup and you will be in waffle heaven. And all in about 5 minutes. Just forget about calories and indulge in a bit of sweetness for supper. You won't be sorry!

The Cabbage Patch Kids inspired crochet hat

I just love Cabbage Patch Kids! Years ago my dad went on a mission to get me one when they were hard to find. With the invent of the internet you can almost find anything these days but back in the day it wasn't so easy. He finally succeeded but there was always a story about what a time he had. He was able to get me two in the long run. The first a little boy named Bobby George (my dad's name was Bobby also) just in case he couldn't get his hands on a girl with red hair. Luckily eventually someone was able to get the girl doll for him to give to me. I was so pleased to get them and he was so happy giving them to me that it is a memory I will always treasure. Whenever I think of Cabbage Patch dolls I always think of him. I get them out once in awhile and clean them up but I hope to display them after I paint my second bedroom which I hope to make whimsical and colorful. Arlene looked like she could use a bit of sprucing up when I got her out for pictures so I'm not su…

Fadra is 4 on the 4th of July!

Happy birthday to my baby! Happy 4th of July too!

I got a new ride!

I am so tickled right now! I've been driving around in my new little car I just got. It's actually old but it has low low mileage and looks better than some brand new cars. It's a convertible at that! I have been missing my old one. Best of all it's paid for. As you can see my blog has a whole new look too but more on that to come. I wanted a test post and what better way to earmark the day I got my car. Lucky me today!
If you've looked over much of my blog you'll see that I pretty much listen to rock or pop music. People have been know to hear me say I hate country music but I don't guess I hate all of it, just enough to where I can't listen long enough to the radio to find out which songs I do like. Sometimes I'll hear one I love in a bar somewhere or a restaurant and think, man I should listen to me some country music but then my beer wears off and I'm like, no thanks. 
The cd player in this car is in the trunk and when I checked it out I sa…
