I'm Alive!

I haven't blogged in quite some time and my twitter friends have been asking if I'm okay. Yes, I'm doing okay. My birthday was last week and I had an amazing day/weekend. I'll try to post all about it this week, nothing like being late. I've been a little down lately and I know I'm going to be okay but I have lots of things going on. I know I will be fine eventually and I'm not going into details here until the time is right. I'm just asking for lots of prayer for peace and understanding at this time in my life. Thank you all for being so supportive.

Charity and Advertising Opportunity

I am priviledged to be a member of Amica, a wonderful organization of 40 women in the Rockwall area who work to give so much to our community. Last year, we gave back over $107,000 to different organizations around the area including Helping Hands, The Rainbow Room and scholarships to high school seniors. One special high school senior had an amazing story that brought me to tears because it mirrored my story. She lost her father in the same way that I lost mine and I couldn't believe how meeting this girl would effect me. I was so happy to put my arms around her and just tell her how much I truly understood. She is actually in college right now to be a teacher.

It's stories like hers and mine that make me realize that all of the work that Amica does for our community is for a great cause. I'm sharing this with you so that you can help. Our annual gala is November 20 where we will have a silent and live auction as well as a casino, dj and other fun events throughout the evening. If you would like to showcase your business by donating an item for the auction, please leave me a comment letting me know your contact information. Or, if you are in the area and would like to attend our 34th annual Denim and Diamonds Gala, please let me know as well! I would love to meet you!

Fall Spruce Up

I have most of my fall decorations and candles out. I am still waiting for my monogrammed pumpkin to be completed and then my decorations will be complete.
Welcome to our house

I have my cornucopia on my formal dining room table

I found this little luminary recently and I love it

I have pumpkins and my favorite fall candle, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin on our coffee table.

There are also plenty of jars of candy corn around.

My favorite sign graces my pantry door

This is the cute little sign I got at the homeshow last week.

I'm still not sure where I want to display them. Right now, they are in the family room on the end table but I don't think that is where they will stay. The only decoration left is my new monogrammed pumpkin. I will share a picture of it when it gets it's home!

Home Show Shopping

Lisa and I went to a home show recently at a friend's new house. There were tons of things that I could have totally broke my budget for but I ended up with a couple of shirts and a little Halloween sign. When we first walked in, we had to check out the rules..

I love rule number 3!
One of the shirts I got is this one...

This shirt is definitely my motto. After all, I moved to Texas because my mom was here!
I'll share my Halloween sign that I picked up in my Fall decorating post. It's very cute!

I Scream, You Scream

We ALL scream for ice cream!! I love ice cream. I could eat it every single day! I don't think there is a bad ice cream. I have recently found the joy of Culver's ice cream. It's actually frozen custard and I think it tastes more like homemade ice cream. The Culver's store in our town has a name of the day thing they do and anyone who has that name gets a free dish of ice cream. Well, last Thursday was my turn...

I stopped in and got my free dish! I tried chocolate this time and it was good but I love the vanilla!

I can't wait to see my name in lights again soon!

Movie Review

Saturday is usually date night at our house and we again held true to our routine this weekend. We started off by taking my car in Saturday morning for maintenance then hit a few stores while it was being worked on and ordered our newest fall decoration- a monogrammed pumpkin- that I had to fight tooth and nail over the store employees about, another story, another time! Saturday night we went to dinner and decided to go to the late showing of the movie, The Social Network. This movie wasn't exactly what I expected it to be. It was more of a documentary style show. I found myself fidgeting about an hour into it and continuously checking my watch thereafter. It was good to know the background of FB but I don't believe this movie was worth all the hype that it has gotten. I would probably see it again if I was at home in my pjs maybe! Have you seen it? What did you think?
