|Wayne had to pull me away from the shed...I didn't want to leave them.|
|Mommy Dog, she's very well behaved.|

Ok, so I really wanted to justify buying a whole jar of Gel Medium after doing my Photos on Wood and I tried researching online what else to use it on. I found some tutorial for glass (which I might do later on down the road) and some more projects on wood. Well, that wasn’t different enough for me…so I decided to experiment...HA! Check out my Craft Inspirations and DIY tab to find out how to make it. BTW, the metal shingle only costed me 33 cents! It looks really cool.

Craft Inspirations and DIY! Make sure you use regular paper (not photo paper) and use a laser printer (not an inkjet printer,) it's a common question I'm getting.

Lace shorts are emerging everywhere! These are so cute and trendy right now. I was scared to commit to sew lace on my shorts so I found a way to have the best of both worlds. DIY Snap On/Off Lace shorts. Now my shorts that can be worn with or without lace. Your favorite shorts can have two different looks. Very cute and you don’t have to give-up your favorite pair of shorts. Check out the Craft Inspirations and DIY to make some for yourself. I LOVE MINE!!! I've worn them like three the past week, hehe!

So, as you can see, my ceiling fans REALLY needed to be cleaned...YUCK!!! I have one of those special bristled brushes made for fan blades but it just makes the dust go EVERYWHERE. I saw on pinterest that you can use a pillow case but I also sprayed some dusting spray so that it would really look good and so that the dust would cling onto the pillowcase. I was amazed how cleaned it looked...I did the other fans in the house immediately!
I used an old flannel pillowcase I haven't used in years which worked perfect for this job. I sprayed the inside with Pledge and then I got up onto of my bed and placed the fan blade inside like it was a sock. I kind of was rubbing the p.c. while it was on so that I can get the under side good and around the brackets. Slowly pull off and Ta Da!!! Minimal dust fell down...YAY! I went ahead and washed my linens afterwards just to make sure...sans pillow case of course...haha.

Here's my specialty....these yummy S'more Pops. They are super fun to make and easy. Everyone loves how they don't get their fingers dirty and full of chocolate/marshmallowy mess after eating them.
Lollipop sticks/Desert sticks
Kitchen Torch or Candle
1. Melt your chocolate in a little bowl on low power in the microwave for 45 seconds. Stir chocolate.
2. Dip half of marshmallow into melted chocolate.
3. Dip into crumbled graham crackers.
4. Place them on wax paper and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to harden chocolate.
5. Remove from refrigerator and use a kitchen torch (not very common,haha) or an unscented candle to roast the other half of the marshmallow.
6. Place stick in marshmallow and enjoy!!!!

I admit...I need to add more embellishments to it, but I'm waiting until I come across something I really like rather than just throw some on there. Since this project has lots of steps, I decided to make the more detailed instructions available on Google Docs.
Remember when you are making yours, do it to fit your personality and customize it however you want. I fell in love with these colors and I didn't realize that it ended up matching my dining room...ha!

I think I need some more embellishments so it's not completely done. As soon as I'm done gathering the pictures, I'll post how I made it.

Go to my Craft Inspirations and DIY to find out how I made these stamped coasters. They are pretty cheap, $4 for a pack of 9 at Home Depot or Lowe's. I have them all over our house and made some to give. I hope you like!

Our bags were packed as soon as we had the opportunity to visit some of Wayne’s family that live just outside of Atlanta. Although it was a LONG way to drive, it sure was fun and I’m ready to go again! It took us about 20 hours just to get there from the time we left our house…and that’s just one way :-P
Unfortunately, we did not have enough time in Georgia but we did zoom over to the Georgia Aquarium, the world’s largest aquarium, and I was in AWW. I felt like a kid in there and had to be pulled out of there by Wayne.
|I touched a manta ray, sharks, and a star fish!|
|Look how big the whale shark looks|
compared to everyone.
|Right above my head|
|At the world's biggest aquarium.|
|We also strolled around the |
famous Centennial Olympic Park

My first thought was “this should be interesting!” What a shock to hear that Midget Wrestling exists and that we were going to actually go for my brother-in-law’s birthday. You know that feeling when you have been smiling so much that your cheeks hurt…well, that was how I was ALL night long. This was my first wrestling experience ever, I never watched it on TV or cared too much about it, I use to call it soap operas for men. But when you add 6 little people in the ring at one time (although one seemed like a short regular man), entertainment value goes way, way up. They were so awesome interacting with the audience, glad they didn’t pick on me though, haha!

I can't believe it's been 5 years since I married my best friend. We both know how truly blessed we are to have this strong, soul-touching love. I hope we have another 100 years like these past 5. Our real celebration was our trip to San Antonio last week but we also went out to dinner on our anniversary to Simply Fondue in downtown Fort Worth...it was Ah-mazing!!! The general manager gave us the best seat in the house and the ambiance was so romantic, perfect restaurant for lovers to dine. But the best part was the chocolate fondue at the end of course. I'm such a chocoholic :-) I found a couple of pictures of our wedding day on my laptop so here's a glimpse from the past. I wonder what the next five years hold for us!!!

About two weeks ago, I won some tickets to my all time favorite team, the Dallas Mavericks for Tuesday's game. Those who know me, know my love for Dirk. I really am not a sports fan, but don't mess with my Mavs. Wayne and I were so excited just to go that we didn't care that the seats were up in the nose-bleed, ha! They won of course.

I really do love road trips, especially since I love to sing my heart out to my favorite songs on my iPhone. Poor Wayne, he says he loves to hear me sing, even though I get most of the words wrong, but I don't care...so much fun!!! We left Friday morning and our first adventure was a sign of a great and unforgettable start, haha.
|Only in Texas...pig runs lose on the highway.|
|Breathtaking views at Mount Bonnell|
The highlights of our trip in San Antonio were the Segways, fo sho! We took a Segway Tour and zoomed around town. We did a Segway tour in Paris and absolutely loved it. Can it get any better than this? I think not! I so want one, ok, I guess 2 for the both of us, hehe.
|Definitely gonna remember the Alamo, ha!|
Wayne got a Captain America Seg, lol.
|Sportin' my cool helmet...Safety First!|
We didn't want to stop there so we rented some bikes from these kiosks that they have all over the city. We brushed up our riding skills and went all around SA. The weather couldn't have been any better, I get hot easily :-P
|Riding around Hemisphere Park|
Then we had to say adios to San Antonio. Hopefully it wont be long that we come back.
