chalkboard mania...

i love chalkboard paint.
love it.
i have had so much fun finding stuff to paint it on.
and guess what?
i'll be selling some of my fun new chalkboards here.
these are two i've made for our little home.

one to hang on the shelf when you walk through the back door...

and this one here welcomes you to our porch...

it is a milk box that had a big ole ugly blog of paint on the front.
add some of my favorite paint and voila it's cute!

sorry about the chalk writing but i am chalk writing challenged.

make sure you come and see them in person on september 18th!! :D

dreams do come true...

seven years ago at about this very time of day one of the 
dreams of my heart came true...
actually it was yesterday that it came true
 but i didn't know about it until today.
a call came telling me that we had the
 opportunity to add a new little life to our family.
a little bundle of can read the story
  here, here, here, oh and it's finished here.

seven years goes by awful fast, doesn't it?
now she's all tall and funny and a little sassy.
not the fat little bundle that i brought home from the 
hospital that happy august day.
she's a little spot of sunshine in our house and 
we're sooo happy that she's ours.

yesterday we went to spaghetti factory....
she would eat spaghetti morning, noon and night.

grammy sent her some money so we of course 
had to detour over to toys r us...

she's been waiting for a zhu zhu pet and she got a 
cute little cowboy hamster named tex.

then we rounded up peytie and headed to ramona and beezus, which i loved. 
oh and i think the kids did too.
and what better way to end the day then with 
cupcakes and playing with your friends?

all in all a pretty good day.
not as good as the day i had seven years ago but close. ;D
happy birthday mybug...we love, love, love you.

well, so.  july was a rough month.
my world did a little crumbling down...
nothing we won't recover from.
but when my world crumbles i tend to crumble with it.
oh i still function...just not well.
damn the depression gene!
when the depression sets in then {poof} there goes all my ambition.
just. like. that.
but now i am manic.
manic is sometimes a good thing. ;D
i am in the middle of redoing a bathroom, redoing a playhouse, getting things ready
for the show,  getting kiddos ready for school,  trying to stay up on laundry and cleaning...
you get the picture.

today, however, is a momentous day.
i am just now waiting for the oldest to arrive back home so that we can move her away to school.
of course, she's coming right back with me because she has to work and have
her wisdom teeth removed.
but she is still on her way out into the big wide world.
i am a happy camper.
18 is a very, very, very hard age.
i mean on me.
world. crumbling. 18.
and as forest gump says, "that's all i have to say about that."

so off she goes.
they are here for 18 yrs.
consuming all of everything you have...physically, emotionally, financially.
then they are just gone.
oh i know she'll be back but here's the thing.
have you every noticed that when they start kindergarten they are never the same?
i have a sneaking suspicion that this will be the case with college.
she'll never truly live here again and have it be the same.
she'll just be staying at her parents house.

this is one of those life changing days for a mom.
and they don't get it.
and your husband doesn't get it.
thank heavenly father that there are millions of other moms who totally get it!
and that one of them is my big sister.
and she is the best to listen and talk to about all this shtuff.
and we get to go to the farmers market tomorrow.

this has been one long rambling post and i'm sorry bout that.

i did find this picture and wanted to share it because it is amazing the amount of shit that
one 18 yr old can shove into a tiny little bedroom.  this is what i feel like we are doing today.

happy friday!
my middle one is going to ride a sheep and chase a greased pig tonight...
that will make this day sooo much better!!
