Wedding Dress-Kelly's Blog

I thought I would join in on Kelly's blog and share my wedding dress. Everyone said the moment that you find the dress you will know, but I did not fall into that category. I loved a lot of dresses, but EVERYONE came back to this one. The veil was my Aunt Angie's from her big day 31 years ago. It was very old fashioned and everyone could not believe I was going to use it. I had a vision that I could not explain and one night I got out the scissors and hot glue gun and it came to life. I encourage you to use at least one thing that is sentimental. I would not trade my veil for anything in this world. Visit for more dress pics.

Yard Sale

I LOVE to save a dollar and I have found that you can find some great treasures at yard sales. I decided to head out Saturday morning to see what I could find. I went to an estate sale first and I saw lots of pretty things, but nothing I really needed. After that I was ready for some coffee so I could not decide if I really wanted to continue on my adventure. I talked myself into going to at least one more stop. I put the address in the GPS and I was on my way. It took what seemed like forever to get there. I pulled up and immediatly the artwork caught my eye.

This one was $1 and I think I may use it in my kitchen.

This one was $4 and it had a price tag on it for $150.

These 2 are my favorites and I got both for $5. I am going to hang them in my foyer. They were brand new with the tags of $150 each still on them.

I found out that the lady's husband was in the business of selling artwork at the furniture market and he has decided to get out of the business. I was amazed that I got 4 pictures ready to go for $10. I sure am glad that I let my coffee wait. :)

Please visit Southern Hospitality to see what everyone else found this weekend!!

Proud Moments!!

I hope that you don't mind if I brag just a little bit. My brother, Zack, is preparing to deploy again in August. He is taking a couple of weeks to rest and relax before he goes to serve our country. He has had very little time off in the past 2 years since he joined the Army and this week during his leave he decided to go be a camp counselor at Cragmont. As a child he went to this camp and his wife, Alex, goes each year to be a counselor so this year they decided they would go together. When he told me I was thinking are you sure and do you remember that you have NO patience. When he got to camp on Monday he was assigned to the 15,16, and 17 year old boys that did not want to be at a "church camp". When my mom told me that I thought this should be interesting, but I forgot that Zack can make a walk down the street interesting. By Tuesday they had started bonding and in Zack's words "This week has been awesome". Zack called and told my mom that it is amazing to see God work in young peoples lives. As you can tell I am so proud of Zack and Alex for giving up a week to go serve. Alex's family has gone to camp as a camper or counselor for years and I think that is really neat. Tonight is the last night and service so I ask you to remember those impressionable lives in your prayers and ask God to move. Zack and Allie I am so proud to call you my brother and sister!! Keep serving him!
