Tour Through Blogland

A few weeks ago, my friend Kathy from Petticoat Junktion,  invited me to participate in a Tour Through Blogland.  On this tour, each blogger shares a bit about themselves, answers four questions, and introduces you to some other bloggers that they adore. I have known Kathy for several years through our blogs and have had […]

It’s Our 20th Anniversary!

  20 years ago today Mr. SP and I were married.  How quickly the time passed by!  The day I met Mr. SP at the YMCA was my lucky day, this guy is a keeper!   I was a daddy’s girl and you can see that I’m his mini-me.  He would have been 74 yesterday. […]

Sherman and Uncle Sam Celebrate the 4th

Happy 4th of July! (Artwork by Mr. SP on my dad’s 1940’s chalkboard.)   Have a wonderful day celebrating with your friends and family!

Mr. SP Turns 50!

Today is Mr. SP’s 50th birthday!  His present is sweet Sherman, the dog he’s been wanting since we met in 1993. It’s going to be a great day in our area and we plan to celebrate his 50th year with a cookout on the patio followed by cake! Speaking of cake, we celebrated three birthdays […]

A Blog Planner for 2013

I’ll have to admit that it’s sometimes a struggle to keep up with making lesson plans for five classes a day at school, commitments after school, and my blog.  I absolutely adore blogging and in the past have kept my blog plans and ideas in my head.  In an effort to be more organized in […]

2013 Goals

I’m one of those people who are very motivated by checking an item off a list.  I don’t make resolutions, but I do like to set goals.  My hope is that by sharing them, I’ll be motivated to complete them.   Home Goals: 1.  The carpet on our steps desperately needs to be replaced.  It’s […]

My Clutch Magazine Feature

Back in August I submitted a project to a local magazine with the hopes that it would be featured in their winter issue or on their blog.  It wasn’t used in either publication, a disappointment, but I enjoyed using it in my home and intend to use it again for Valentine’s Day. In the fall, […]

2012 :: A look Back

2012 is coming to a close and it’s time to take a look back at what was accomplished and to share a few popular posts from the year. The first house project started this year was a remodel of our tiny upstairs guest bath.  Mr. SP worked on and off on this project all year […]

Merry Christmas

How is it already Christmas Eve?  I’m looking forward to a day in the kitchen preparing a meal for family: rib eye roast, scalloped potatoes, spinach salad, roasted brussels sprouts, pineapple casserole, and rolls.  Christmas Day with family is always enjoyable.  My niece and I are going to stay with my mom for a few […]

Saturday in Bedford County

Saturday was a perfect fall day.  After a brief debate to decide if we would work around the house or go out and about, we decided to venture to Bedford County for the day. We started at a craft show at Bedford Elementary where a sweet reader stopped Mr. SP and told him that she […]
