An Award

Mrs. Grits awarded me with this fun little award. Thank you!

So I am supposed to tell you 7 things about myself that you might not now already.

Let's see...

1. I love being creative and starting new projects - embroidery, sewing,...etc except I never find time to complete those projects. :(

2. I think I truly bleed orange. Tennessee is my alma mater - received my bachelor's degree and master's degree there. My eyes are glued to the tv when there is a UT football or basketball game on. I even sing rocky top during the game when my boys are struggling thinking that they will hear me thru the tv.

3.I am fluent in sign language due to my job - a teacher of the deaf.

4. I work hard for my money - seriously! 1 fulltime job and like 4 part time gigs.

5. I am addicted to my tivo. One of the best purchases I ever made!

6. I don't wear makeup to my job (teaching). My hands are so active and when I get frustrated I tend to rub at my face and all the makeup would streak or come off so I just go with lipstick.

7. My favorite food of all time is chocolate chip pancackes. It is just heaven to me but I limit myself to it maybe once a year.

I tag everyone to do this!

a new look

Doesn't it look fabulous?!!! I just adore it! If you are looking for a new blog or twitter design, please go check out the work done by KrizzysDesigns! Her work is wonderful!

Getting ready for tomorrow at Memphis in May's World Championship Barbeque Cooking Contest! It is so much fun! You should see some of the booths that the teams build. Some are two story that all over look the Mississippi River. It is quite fun! I will definitely get pics this year up on the site.

Well it is time for bed, but be sure to check out my blog this weekend for a special giveaway in honor of my new look!

coming soon

So it has been a while since I did the blogging thing on a consistent basis. I am determined to changed that. To get me going again, I am having some design help from KrizzyDesigns. I am looking forward to something different!

Well I have approximately 15 more school days until the end of the year and I am thrilled! I will then jump on a plane and fly to Vegas with my mom. We have already gotten tickets for -



I am so excited! I love Las Vegas! This is my third time and I even got married and had my honeymoon there. I love the cirque shows! I have seen KA, LOVE, Zumanity, Cirque Believe by Criss Angel, and Barry Manilow.

I may not be going with a lot of money to shop but that is okay. I just love being in the Vegas atmosphere!
