DIY Photo Coasters

     I have been wanting to try these for a while now... Well, ever since I saw the idea and tutorial over here on my friend Karen's blog, The Pink Parsonage. Last night my friend, Bethany, came over and we tried it out together. I was really happy with how they turned out ( Some things I would do a little different next time, but that's how things go the first time around.) and probably will make them again sometime. Anyways, here are some pictures of the little adventure....

Putting on several layers of Mog Podge.

Spraying on several layers of sealer.

The finished project.

Of course, a hot cup of chai tea was needed as well. :)

The Accident

     Yesterday Michael was involved in a 5 car pile up, but thankfully wasn't hurt and the car was just scratched up some. He happened to have the camera in the car and snapped a couple pictures, but it was after they had cleared a lot of if up and moved cars so they could get to the people trapped in the first car that was hit. The big construction truck was the one that caused the accident. It is believe that he ran the light. Both people from the truck and car were rushed to the ER with injuries.

In My Seat


Above is the link to a very powerful story of the pilot who was to be flying flight 11 that horrific September 11th. For whatever reason I could not post the video here off of YouTube. I would strongly suggest watching it. It is very powerful and worth your time!

The Rearranged Living Room

     We were desperately needing more seating in our living room, other than what we had... Just a couch. We don't have much space, so the chairs needed to be small, no "big grandpa" recliners, etc. {Although they are extremely comfy.:)} We got these chairs for free, and even though the color is not amazing(they do fit in rather well...), they are in really good condition, and the perfect size. I had quite a time trying to rearrange everything, but I think I got it. :) It feels much more cozy in here....

    Also, I got a little desk {Thank you Mama for swapping with me!} in the kitchen to put our computer on, and have a little "work" space. I love it! :)

Muffin Toots-Wiggs (AKA: Muffy) :)

     We have had our kitten for 4 weeks now. She is getting bigger and lots of fun. Her personality is really starting to show. I thought I would post some recent pictures.
