Crafty space.

Can I just say I have a wonderful husband.  I love him, he listens to me, and he likes to support my hobbies. He likes to give me time to work on different things. The sad thing is he also likes to make a mess. A huge mess, that needs to be cleaned almost everyday. (I know I used to be messy but I have slowly become more a of neat freak.) So, when my husband said that he is going to give me my own space to work on and store crafts (even thought it is one corner of a room) I'm super excited and of course went to Pinterest for ideas.

Just some small ideas...What do you all think?

Sounday Social

The weather has been beautiful and I still can't kick this cold/flu that I have going on. Ugh. I better kick it before my birthday on Thursday!  Anyways- I have been loving the sun shine- opening the windows, finally getting things cleaned out- going through my closet- it's a blast. But sometimes, I want someone to talk to while doing this. So why not talk to all of you with  The Sunday Social !

1. Did you sleep walk as a child- No, I didn't sleep walk, but I do move around (like kick) in my sleep and I talk in my sleep.

2. Did you ever try to sneak out of the house or run away- Once I tried to sneak out and run away- it didn't work.

3. Did you have any imaginary friends?  I had a pet mouse named fluffy- but sadly fluffy went away. :(

4. Did you ever go toilet papering- Yes- It was my first week at a new school and some kids took me. It was fun, but sadly those kids and I aren't friends any more. Oh well, their loss.  I'm pretty cool and I think they are jealous.

5. Did you ever sneak TV shows as a kid? No. I listened to my mom and never watched anything I wasn't suppose to. I was the perfect little child who didn't break the rules.

Dear Friday

Dear Friday
    I am so happy that you have finally arrived and you arrived with sunshine. Dear Sun, please, please stay for a long time. I have missed you and your warm touch. Which  lead to the song I want to share- it's an old one, but a good one.

Dear Winston, I love how cuddly you are. Today we are going for a nice long walk. We are also going to see if the dog park has opened. Next week I may have you write a blog post, so start thinking of your topic please.  Dear Jeff, I love you and can't believe that we have been married for almost a year. Dear blog readers, what type of topics to you like reading? What do you want to see me write about more.

Yummy yummy chicken pot pie

Good Morning,

Toby's Tails
<div align="center"><a href="http://tobystailsblog.blogspot.com" title="Toby's Tails"><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-NFtWr41cWWo/USz0l98PD7I/AAAAAAAADcM/zNgbosXbbbE/w497-h373/2013-02-26" alt="Toby's Tails" style="border:none;" /></a></div>

I have a wonderful husband. All the time I was sick  just wanted a good old fashion Chicken Pot Pie. I thought I would share the yumminess with you.

Crust: (This is for two small pot pies- it covers the bottom and the top- not the side)
            1 Cup Flour
            1/3 to 1/2 cup milk
           3 Tbsp butter
           2 tsp sage
          Pinch of salt

1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add milk and butter and kneed  until a ball forms. Put int he fridge

Inside(aka soup):
    1 can of cream of chicken soup
    1 cup of water
    1/4 cup milk
    cooked chicken cubed

1. Mix everything together in  a sauce pan. Bring to a boil.

Put together:
              Roll out the crust- set some int he bottom of the pan. Pour the soup in. Cover with the rest of the crust. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.


(I think if I were to make this again, I would brush some butter on top of the crust to give it a flaky texture and taste. What do you think?)

 And for some of my It's Okay's for the week:

...to be super excited for the 48 degree weather we had yesterday....
...to have crazy food cravings and NOT be pregnant but PMSing...
...to love the idea of paperwork just to be able to listen to music...
...to be super excited that the peppers I planted have sprouted.. YAY!...
...to want to wear sun dresses and have the body to wear sun dresses...

Perfume and PJ's

So I have been sick for the past few days. Actually since late Friday night, and this flu is one heck of a a flu. It really stinks. And yet, because of it, I haven't been able to take any pictures of what I have been wearing.  For my link ups today, I'm going to be posting a the different perfumes I like to wear (Not all at once though) and of course, some pretty cute PJ's
Ralph Lauren Blue Eau de Toilette Spray, 4.2 fl. oz.


I think this is really cute

Who doesn't love Doggy Pajama's? Winston might not- he get's sweaty when he sleeps. 

So what are pinning?

Poppy is dying :(

So I have a lemon tree.

(The picture will take you to the link)

But, sadly  I noticed things on it. Turns out, it had bugs and those pesky little bugs, are killing it.

oh hell to the no

So my wonderful husband is calling the nursery where we got the tree to see what we can do. I know the bugs didn't come from us, since  it's been winter, there is snow, the tree has been inside, and the bugs are not native to my state.

Britney Spears OMG

I really hope that it all can work out in our favor, because Poppy (that's my tree's name) has no leaves and was expensive.

New Blog design

Happy Monday Morning.

Don't you just love the new design? I know I do.

So here is the story behind it. Jamie from Toby tails was offering a free blog design give away from the wonderful women who designed her blog, Beth.  I really enjoyed working with Beth on my blog. She is super professional and didn't mind answering all the questions I had, and trust me I had a lot of questions.  With in a week of starting to work with me she had a mock up for me and I loved it. (Which is something for me, because I am a very indecisive person and always changes my mind) After letting Beth know that I loved her mock-up we went down to business. I talked to her about my button and the small about me section, as well as the side bars.  We came up with this wonderful design.

I love it.

So, I want to know what you all think? I also want you all to go and check out Beth's page, because she will be featuring my blog later this week.

What to wear?

TGIF...I guess.

This week has been very difficult for my husband. He loss his father when he was 9 and if his dad was still alive he would be turning 50 today.  Not only that, but today we have a funeral for an Aunt of his.  Which leads me with this- what should I wear. I was thinking of a plain simple black dress- but now with the snow and the cold I was thinking dress pants and a top.So  I was thinking og just wearing a dark color- what do you all think?

Anyways, since there is travel time...I'm thinking of knitting on the way. I want to build up my inventory of doggy sweaters.
(No- this is not Winston- it's a model for a new sweater idea)

Which leads me to this. I was contacted by a magazine..a knitting magazine about a free contest they are having. The magazine is called  Love of Knitting (I have seen it before-so yay) And if you want some free yarn, please click on of those two links below.


 I hope if you do want yarn- you enter.

Lastly, I woke up and there was a four letter word on the ground. Those of you in MN I'm so sorry for you. But please stop sending your snow our way.

 As for me- I may be off line for a while well I take care of my husband and help him get through this time.

On Cloud 9 Guest Post

Hi everyone, I am so excited and honored that Dani has invited me to do a guest post on her blog.  Dani and I first met through theknot.com (which is a wonderful wedding website for ideas and inspiration) when we were planning our June 2012 weddings.  I am an avid follower of her blog, as she is mine.

So, let me introduce myself.  My name is Ashlyn and I'm a twenty something year old, wife to an airline pilot, lover of all things pink and sparkly, blogger.  Of course these are just a few things to describe myself, but if you would like to know more about me you can follow me at thelifeofapilotswife.blogspot.com.  On my blog, I love to post about all aspects of my life - marriage, traveling, DIY projects, shopping, dreams/goals, and just life in general, so I guess you could say it's a lifestyle type of blog.  With my husband being an airline pilot, and us being married for about a year now, I've had a lot of fun things to post about and I'm sure we'll have many exciting things coming in our future.  I'd love it if you'd follow us through our journey and I can also follow you through your's. :)  Thanks again to Dani for allowing me to do a guest post!


Random 5!

Hi all,
 My name is Dani. Yesterday Jamie asked me if I wanted to be a co-host and I just couldn't turn it down. I'm hoping that the button below works for everyone.

Today, my thoughts are this...

                    I was  tagged by Kristen from Making each Minute count. So, why not jump right on in.

1.  My lungs suck
I've always had breathing problems since I could remember. Between the stuffed nose, allergies, and the asthma, I can clearly say I have sucky lungs. 
2. I like Grey's Anatomy. 
It's one of my favorite TV shows. 
3. I can play my nose. 
My mom taught me.I can play certain songs on my nose and it really sounds like music. Of course Jeff thinks it's weird and all. But that's okay. 
4. I'm a geek
My favorite classes of all time are linguistics and psychology. I love language. I love different cultures and I love learning about the brain. (I know a geek)
5.  I'm a midget. 
 I don't remember if I talked about this on here yet but I'm under 5 feet so that legally makes me a midget. I'm not a dwarf  because I don't have the genetic code to be a dwarf and I'm over 4 feet.

I forgot to tag people: (oooppps)

Today I'm tagging:
Ashlyn at On Cloud 9
Deanna at The Peony Princess
Heather at Every Girl like Me
Jess at Little Miss Undomestic
 Jazmine at Sassy Burnette

 With the weather being cold, snowy and rainy, I was thinking of investing in some rain boots.  I want them to be bright with a pop of color maybe like this...

Anyways, what do you all think?

Winston on Pinterest???

Happy Wednesday morning,

To start I will address the title of Winston on Pinterest. I will be showing some pins that I feel all animal lovers will like. (Although some may break your heart)  and of course some outfits that Winston likes to wear.

The two sweaters are made by me. 
The one that say's Woof is from Petco
The top one was a gift. 

and for me. This is about as dressy as I've been with all the rain, snow and cold.

And now for

I'm sorry if they offend,but it it how I feel.

Prayers for Boston

What do I say?

I have never been one to like Boston- mainly because I am an avid New York Yankee Fan. And yet- for today I want to say a prayer for them. I want to know what happened, and let all those affected know that things are going to be okay.  I want their to be peace in their hearts. I want them to know that what happened to them is horrible. I want there to be peace in the world.

I saw this on face
book and though it made a lot of sense. What do you think?

and a prayer to share

Books n Chilli n Knitting...Oh my

Hello all,
        After I made a big decision about NOT letting the weather get to me, guess what. We have sun! Sun (I know...what is that) Anyway, the decision was to spend time indoors, cleaning, making chili, reading books and knitting. But now that there is sun, maybe I will go outside for a nice long walk with Winston.

So, today I plan to make my classic Chili and for tomorrow it will be spaghetti with homemade sauce. I'm reading and knitting to build an inventory for my shop. Yes after a lot of thinking I have decided to go ahead with the shop. Anyways if you want the chili recipe you can go here. To let you know there will be no recipe for the pasta sauce mainly because its a secret and also because it's not sauce it's gravy as the pin below says.

 Oh the many problems of being Italian.

The Peony Princess Guest Post

Hey guys, I'm Deanna and I blog over at The Peony Princess!

A few weeks ago Dani was nice enough to do a guest post for me while I was going through a very difficult time, she's great isn't she?

When I was going through all of my stuff, I got to thinking about what could take my mind off things and just be a little fun. Well, living in South Dakota, I don't have many options when it comes to outdoor activities, so instead I thought I could pamper myself a little!

I'm a little crazy when it comes to my nails because I need to always have them painted, and if they chip, I need to either fix it quick or just take off my polish and start again.

I like to look to the internet for inspiration on nails, so here are a few of my favorites from pinterest!

I hope you enjoy and come stop by my blog if you get a chance!

X! Winter storm Xerxes. X!

Good  Morning everyone,

 For those of you who are currently having warm,sunny, spring like weather...can I please move in with you? Like seriously. This post may sound bitchy whiny, but, I'm done. I'm sick of the weather. And to top it all off- we are now getting hit by Winter Storm Xerxes. X!  I mean, there are 26 letters in the alphabet and right now there is winter storm X outside. (ice, snow, freezing rain, ice, snow, rain, ice...)

I feel this picture says it all.

Free Onions!

TGIF all.
Guess what- I got Free Onions.

Imagine this- it's raining out and you go into work and are just feeling ho-hum. And then, you go to the kitchen, and see a not addressed to you saying "The onions in the fridge are for you" Eeek! Free onions! It's like

And it makes your rainy day tens times brighter.  And then you stumble across this on the interwebz 

The first one- very funny. The second one just reminds me of Winston. But I'm glad yesterday was rain, because today we have

(Okay- that's not true. I love snow, I really do, just not in April)
Which leads Winston to look like
I can't go play ball outside. :(

Well, I guess that is all for now. Until next time.

Is it Friday yet?!?!?!?!?!?!

Hi all
 Today is Thursday. Not Friday, sometimes I want to ask Is it Friday yet?!?!?!?!  Even Winston wants it to be Friday. Look at this face, it's so cute and so...I don't want to get up, I want my day to sleep in.

and this was him the other night with his tennis ball. We had hail bigger than a quarter and he was so scared he grabbed his ball and buried himself under blankets on the bed. 

So I have a little problem, I moved where my button was placed, and now it doesn't work. Does anyone have any ideas on how to help me?
