What I've Been Up To

So, it's been awhile.  A loooooong while.  Six. Months.  That is waaaaay toooo loooong!  I have missed my bloggy peeps so much, but it seems every single time I sit down to write a post, something comes up and I have to stop writing.  I am only supposed to work four hours a day, but between subbing for other teachers in the afternoon, PTO meetings and household errands, it's really hard to sit down and get to write.  So, here it goes.

Wanna know what I've been up to for the last few months?  I would love to tell you about my tour through Italy and other exciting adventures, but when I look back to the last six months, not much has happened but everyday stuff.  So, here is my very exciting look back.

In September, my oldest baby, "C", turned 15.  We celebrated with pie.

We also had new puppies, only two this time.

Bella went to a sweet family in Texas.

This is Jake.  He stayed with us.

In November, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving with some of our cousins from Texas.  We haven't gotten together for years so it was a blast to see them.  These three little cousins had a blast together.

On Christmas Day, we had record snowfall in Arkansas.  It was the first white Christmas in 80 years.  We got a total of 9 inches at my house.

In January, I turned 42.  No pictures necessary.  I'm trying to forget it happened.

February has been a pretty good month.  Hubby and I celebrated 12 years of marriage.  What did we do?  Not a durn thing.  We didn't go out to eat.  We didn't have a date.  E had dance and I think we ate leftovers.  My life is so exciting.  For Valentine's Day my sweet Hubby gave me my favorite chocolate truffles.  YUM!  I made him his favorite cake.  Again, no going out on a date.  ugh!  I need a nanny.  Wanna know who DID have a date with my Hubby?

Last but not least, the 1st grade at school has been reading and studying The Wizard of Oz.  On Friday, they had a Wizard of Oz parade at school E, of course, insisted on being Dorothy. 

The Dorothy with her face showing is E.  The other Dorothys were adorable too, but I didn't have permission to print their pictures. 

So, that's pretty much the last six months in a nutshell.  It doesn't sound like I've been busy at all, does it?  Oh well.  Hopefully things will be slowing down soon and I can get back to blogging on a more regular basis.  I can't wait to catch up with everybody!



  1. Well, hello! Miss seeing you around the blog world! Any crafting or sewing going on by you?

  2. Sure have missed you, Tanya! So glad you're back, if even for a little while! Glad to know that all is well in your corner of the world!

  3. Well there you are! Havent seen you lately;) was wondering about you the other day!!
    My life is super exciting too, ha!
    P.S. the cake wreck is from Harps. It tasted great-and they have made me cute cakes before-but this was bad, lol!

  4. It's great to see you blogging! I've missed you!

    Love seeing all of your pictures.

  5. Yay!! It was wonderful to look on my sideboard and see something besides your chicken fried steak!! (Be grateful that I didn't say your crack...)

    You have been greatly missed. I haven't posted much myself in the past six months, but I really and truly miss it too and want to get back to it. I sincerely hope you do too!

    (BTW,I love that father/daughter dance picture, and I'll be she was the CUTEST Dorothy of all. )

  6. So glad to hear from you again! Glad things have been going well.

  7. I think we all know what it's like to have a hard time finding the chance to blog, no matter how much we want to! It sounds like you've been having a great time though! My oldest baby turns 15 in June - I can't even stand it or believe it!

  9. Hey girl - I'm sorry I missed your comment last month. I keep getting so many junk comments that I think none are real. I've been slow on blogging, too. Did you make the Dorothy dress for your daughter? I like how it's different than the others. It looks more authentic as well. Hope you had a lovely Easter. We still need to meet!
