Happy Anniversary to ME, well US!!!

Hi Everybody,

So one of the biggest reasons for my absence is that Hubs and I celebrated 5 wonderful years together September 8, 2012.  We have been unable in times past to really go out and celebrate, but this year we made a point to do some of the things that we have been wanting to do.

So early in the am we started on a two hour drive from Springfield, OR to Portland, OR.  We have the best drives ever.  We talk about about everything, have in-depth discussions, share ideas, laugh a lot, and just have fun being with each other.

So once we got to Portland we were hungry for breakfast and decided to visit a place featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.  We love that show.  We stopped in at Pine State Biscuits.

Here is the video from Triple D....

To walk off breakfast we walked through a street fair and had a fantastic time seeing the talent people have.  Then we grew hungry again.  Well, I grew hungry again.  So we went to visit another place shown on Triple D.  This time we went to Byways Cafe.

Hubs ordered the biscuits and gravy and I got the pancakes.  We were so full that we had enough left over for breakfast the next day.  But it was soo good.

Then it was time for a little shopping.  We met up with some friends in the area and went to the outlets. This is a pic hubs took of me being silly with these shades he picked out.  They did not take the trip home with us.

So we wrapped up our day and finally took the drive back home.  We did stop off and pick up an anniversary Lemon Meringue pie from Shari's here in OR.  It was the perfect end to a perfect day.

So we really took the week and celebrated our anniversary, however, that trip alone made me so tired that I didn't have the energy to create or post anything.  I would come home and crash on the couch.

So this is what has kept me away for a little while.  But I am energized and ready to go so watch out.  :D

Well, that is all for now everybody.  Enjoy the videos.  Until next time..

Hi Everybody,

Yes I know it has been quit a long time but life has just been quite busy.  Not that this should be an excuse.  work for me starts at 6:30 am and I still trying to adjust to the new schedule.  I have been working on getting my camera and the computer to place nice with each other so that I can upload the videos that I have created of new projects to share with you all.  I have been going forth, stepping out on faith and doing what God has instructed me to do.  A bit out of my comfort zone but I know it's what he wants of me.

That being said, I am sharing this project with you all.  Ministering to people in song is what the Lord has asked of me and when I do I give it my all.  I tend to get hot when I sing as most do and so my straight hair tends to become an afro after about 15 min.  So solve this I wanted to find a cute way style my hair and stay afro-less (much love to the fro's).

So my hair piece is nothing new but new to me since I made it myself and I am proud of it.
Here it is...
This purple flowers I sprayed Lindy's Stamp Gang - Scintillating Silver spray once I hot glued all the flowers together.  I found the purple flowers and berries at Dollar Tree.  The cream flowers are from the thrift store.

The Mum and Poppy flowers are also from Dollar Tree.  Though hard to see, the Dogwood blossom is from the local thrift store.

I picked up stretch bands from, where else - Dollar Tree, glued the flowers to a piece of felt and then attached the stretch band to it.  I whipped these up in a matter of 20 minutes, literally!  No I have to make more in every color within my wardrobe.

Okay everybody, that is all for today.  I will really work on the camera thing and get those videos uploaded for you.  Thanks for stopping in and I will see you all next time.
