Try It Tuesday

Of course our first Christmas together we purchased our tree, ornaments, beads, star etc. So the past 4 years we've put up our tree and I have loved it... until this year. I knew it needed something... I just couldn't put my finger on it.

Enter Hobby Lobby.... and green, fluff, wrap stuff.

I'm not even sure what this stuff is called but lots of people these days have wreaths made out of it and many have added it to their trees or even made it into a tree topper. Mom and I played with it and realized it may look like a lot on a roll, but it does not go near far as I'd hoped. We tried many different ways and this was our favorite look.

Now please remember my tree was already fully decorated. And since putting this up 3 weeks ago, I have done more tucking in so it doesn't look like I threw up some stuff on my tree like this picture indicates. And since then I have also straightened that skirt and added presents. I do think the green wrap helps the tree to pop... and if you know me you know I like pop when it comes to decorating... to d's dismay. He was not a fan at first, but I think its grown on him. Although if you see him... don't ask him about it b/c he may change his mind. :)

What are your thoughts? Do you like it? Do you have some? How did you use it?

Ole Grad

Saturday my sister graduated from the University of Memphis...cum lade... might I add. We are so proud of her. There for awhile she complained so much I thought she might throw in the towel. She never did. She worked hard and it payed off. Congrats baby sister! We are so proud of you!

For some reason she wanted a picture with me wearing that dumb hat. Wearing it once 4 1/2 years ago was enough.

Will couldn't contain his excitement for her at her graduation party.

5 years

We celebrated 5 years in May. I knew that for part of my anniversary gift I wanted to have some nice pictures made. Now please understand I married "Mr. I don't like taking pictures... especially for a photo shoot." But because he loves me so much and the photographer promised to keep it quick... a shoot we did. Here are my favorites.

Thank you P.S. Photogrpahy!

I love pictures...

I came across some old pictures today... and I thought I'd share.

This (d) just makes me laugh and it also makes me thankful that I discovered ww.

D's ordination at Bellevue a couple of years ago.

10 years ago

Can you tell my husband is competitive?

This basiclaly sums up our beach vaca. Notice only my chair is in the sun. And then they wonder why they aren't very tan when we leave.

And then something new...

5 year anniversary shoot pictures coming soon!

Try It Tuesday

If you haven't discovered these little bits of Christmas heaven then you're missing out. It isn't really Christmas until you've indulged yourself in these little babies!

And you'll be happy to know that I have maintained self control and haven't eaten near as many as I've wanted.
