The best thing that has happened this week-


First of all- I want to say HAPPY VALENTINES..

This week has been awesome.


This week has been the best week ever. We have had some family outings this week that blew my mind.

My kids are usually very “spontaneous” and “wild” and even more so when they are out in public. Not this week. We took some trips shopping for some new house items (a futon) and craft items (for me).

I hit the jackpot this year. Adam combined my Bday (not until next month) with Valentines..

guess what I scored?

A 98 Ford Expedition Harley Davidson Edition with 170,000 original Miles..

I got a blazer 2 years ago, and didn’t have for a full year before some idiot ran out in front of me and messed the entire FRONT of it up. So, I needed a new truck. I say TRUCK because I am not a car or van kind of woman. I am SUV all the way. I love this new truck. It has amazing gas mileage for an SUV. 22-23 MPG on the highway and about 18 regular. Why is this so awesome to me? It has a V8..

and gets more gas mileage than my blazer ever thought about getting.


A Kindle! I wasn’t sure at first whether or not I wanted one. I figured how could something electronic be as cozy as cuddling with a book?

But with the number of book review requests I am receiving, I am thinking it would be much easier to read the e-books on kindle instead of reading it on my laptop.

A tripod for my camera- that’s FLEXIBLE,

I can now make some Craft tutorials. So watch for them. as soon as I am caught up on work, I’ll start working on some. =)

Microsoft Office 2010

I had 2007 when I was in college. I just couldn’t seem to live without it. Google Docs is okay, but it can’t match up to Word. I am also CRAZY about OneNote. I am addicted. Ending up running me $160

A LOT of yarn and fabric.

These aren’t the actual pictures. It is dark in my house right now and my kids are asleep. I don’t want to risk waking them, so I pulled some from Google Images.

I got the fabric and yarn at walmart. No matter who else is selling, I always love Walmart more because they have so many choices at cheap prices. The most I paid for a ball was like $6 and it was triple the amount of the lesser balls of yarn.

I got some mixed colors as well as regular. I will post pictures tomorrow.

Some new Baby Phat shoes, 2 pair of boots, and a new pair of wedges (my first because I always thought they looked so weird)

The picture below is the new Fergalicious boots by Fergie and I absolutely LOVE them.


New DVD player with 2 screens for my truck, so when I am yardselling- my kids can watch Their shows while we travel in between the places. =)

I also got a pair of jeans, a new purse, some fingernail polish, mineral make-up, and 2 belts..


I also had my baby girl turn 3. I can’t believe that it has been 3 years since I had her. She is such an awesome little girl, and I KNOW I am glad to have her in my life. Both Adisyn and Aidan are my world. I love them so much and am glad to be their mom.


This is all for me tonight. I am wore out. Had a long day, although it was an awesome one. Got a lot done and tomorrow is laundry day

so I need my beauty sleep LOL.

Until tomorrow-



What is the best thing that has happened to you this week?
