Long time coming..

It's been a very long time since I posted.. I mean my goodness, Kaylee will be two next month and i've had ANOTHER daughter, Karlee, who is 8 months old! I'm just wondering if I still have followers. Those wanting and willing to read my blog. I loved blogging when I did it, but my heart has gotten away from it, and i'm not sure yet if i'd really be back into it. If you're reading this, please let me know what you think!

Until Next Time

Kaylee's first County Fair
Lovin her Bows!

So, my long absence started when lightening came through and struck everything except my house... our washer and dryer, an outbuilding, a couple of electrical lines, and of course.. our satellite internet. We've been checking e-mail here and there, since we are on a waiting list to get it fixed. It's a mess. Since then, I have started my new job at Crossett High School as an Agriculture Teacher. We are living in Crossett, and we just now found a rent house that we can move into at the beginning of next month. Things are going ok, we just have to keep on keepin on! I ask that you keep my grandmother in your prayers, she is not doing very well. Anyways, until I can write again, I still check in now and then with your blogs! I am still around, just can't write my own as much. I miss you all dearly!!

My Vehicle Evolution

I got my first car at the mere age of 15, a couple of months before my 16th birthday. I was away on a FFA trip for the weekend, just to come home to a 2001 pontiac sunfire, completely paid for. I kept that sunfire for 5 years, only being in a shop once for a recalled part.

My parents started to worry about the reliabilty of the sunfire since I was going into the 2nd semester of my junior year of college, and had been driving the wheels off that car. After looking a few places and driving a few cars.. my heart was set on this.

2007 Ford Mustang

I was happy, well, BEYOND happy. A brand new car with nothin but time to waste in it. I loved that car so much.. while I was single. I met Jeremy + Jeremy had two boys + Boys couldn't fit comfortably in back seat = Mustang needed to go & Sad Krystal. So I traded the following August, leaving me in the mustang seventeen happy months. Well, eight happy months, one month without, and the following eight months worrying. Why worry? Because I totaled a deer in the mustang. Hit it, drug it under the car, and did $6,000 worth of damage.

I went to the lot where I bought the Stang', looking for something bigger. I left with this.

2005 Chevy Equinox

Ehh, not so fond of this one. In fact, I had to look through 981 pictures to find this one single picture of the equinox, on the car lot, the day I got it. I hit a deer in this one too, and though I wish it would've totaled the car and NOT the deer... there was only $4,000 worth of damage that time.

I've been looking to trade for a while. A long while. I knew what I wanted, just couldn't find exactly what I wanted. Last Thursday, while taking Kaylee to Little Rock for some tests... I found what I wanted.

2009 Ford F150

Please excuse my husband, whom is talking on the phone in all of the above pictures..
I let him drive because he had just bought me this..

Woo hoo!!
And what does Miss Kaylee think of her momma's new ride???

She won't stay awake in it long enough to let me know!

I've been a bit crafty lately. Please give me your thoughts!!

These are flower pens. What you need:
  • 5-6 different fake colored flowers (or all the same, whatever you like!)
  • Ball Point Pens (not any that click)
  • Floral Tape

1. Cut Flower off of the bundle (leave plenty of "stem" for a good hold around the pen to be wrapped)
2. Put the flower as close to the end of the end as possible
3. Wrap with Floral Tape.
4. Put in Flower Pot. (I got accent rocks to put in the pot, so the flowers will stay better once they go back in.

Picture Frame
Just had an idea and went with it! I LOVE the results.

Hair Bow Holders in Kaylee's initials..
I painted the dots and hot glued the ribbon on. Sorry you can't see the ribbon very well, there are 2 from the K and H, one from the G, and it's reverse colors of the letters (red with white dots).
When painting the letters, I started thinking it was a little Easter eggish..
I did red/white since her room will be in farm animals

When i'm not doing things like crafts... i'm doing things like this..
Lemon Ice Box Pie


This is NOT one of my crafts, but it is one of my mom's crafts. She made this for Kaylee

We love farm animals
Kaylee stretchin on her new blanket!

My sweet little girl!

Isn't she just a doll?! Not an ACTUAL doll of course, unlike some people are doing these days. My little Kaylee cakes is cute as can be, and also as REAL as she can be.

Yes, I know. I've been away, for quite some time. I also know how bad you all have missed me. (Hehee). I could make a list of reasons why I haven't been around, but i'm sure none of you really want to know (right?!). Oh well, here's my list anyways...

1) Kaylee has been sick, high temp, congestion.. blah
2) I started summer graduate classes, I should have known.. right?
3) Packing. Even though I only have 3 boxes packed, it's better than the 1 box I had packed this time last week.
4) Spending time with PJ and Emma. Even though life is hectic right now- my friend PJ is staying with us while her husband is working in Magnolia. They have a precious little girl and a sweet little boy. You can check out and follow her blog here.. http://babysethryan.blogspot.com/

5) Did I mention i'm taking a summer graduate class? And that I have 5 books for this one class?
6) Looking for a house in Crossett. We found one, just hope everything works out.
7) Farm Town. I can't lie, i'm addicted.

So, now that you all know what I have been doing... what's been going on with you??!

Remember When?

Remember when I posted about a certain "Wednesday" that was a surprise...
Or a Tuesday that was "part 2 of Wednesday"..
Do you remember?

Time passed, and I didn't know what to say. Things did not go the way I expected. I had people I didn't even know telling me the results of these two days, just to later find out "something happened". I still don't know what happened, and I honestly still don't want to talk about it. I will say, it was for a job. A job I didn't get, even after everyone heard I had. Everything works out for the best though, or at least that's what i'm going to hope because...

Starting July 1, i'll be the 2nd Teacher in a 2 Teacher Program at Crossett High School! Teaching Agriculture of course, i'll have some Intro to Agriculture classes, a Greenhouse class and another Intro to the World of Agriculture. Or something like that, it's not all set in stone. I do get to meet my students next week, and spend some time with them. Luckily, next week, i'll get to meet MOST of the Officer Team also. I'm very excited.

We will be moving, so it's a good thing I started packing not long ago. I have a LONG LONG LONG ways to go.. but I did start.. that's a plus right?

This is where I live now.

And this is where Crossett is...

It's about a 2 hour drive. Not bad, but I want to live closer. I wanted to get out of Southern Arkansas... but Southern Arkansas LOVES me. And that's ok, cause i'm loving Southern Arkansas more and more!

My teeth are clenched so tight my jaw hurts.
My stomach is in knots.
My fingernails are non-existant...
My body is going through a crisis....
I'm stressed. I thought once school was out, I would be better. I thought once Kaylee was home, I would be better. I thought I thought I thought. I'm still thinking. Can't stop thinking. Why is this so stressful? Am I finally going to see the end of my "wednesday" that I no longer want to even THINK about much less talk about, my endless search, my constant struggle... as if I don't have enough going on in my life.
