I’m Still Here!!

March 2, 2015

I just turned the page in my blog post calendar.  Hello, March!  Its page is full of white space and empty boxes.  Oh, the possibilities!:)

I really don’t know where February went.  I had a whole slew of ideas rolling around in my head, but got completely off-track trying to learn some new technical blog stuff.  I won’t bore you with the details…but in a nutshell, I didn’t get much actual blogging done, and my computer is now in at the repair shop.  (uggh…)

So, here I am typing away at our old dinosaur computer.  Apparently, it seems to have enough life in it to churn out a few more words.  Pictures, however, are out of the question.  It seems to have completely died in that department.  So, you’ll just have to imagine the pictures I intended to go into this post…

I’ve decided not to choose a theme for my blog posts this month.  Maybe I’ll write the ones about paint that I wanted to last month…  And the sun is shining now!  Although we’re still loading our wood stove on a very regular basis, looking out the window tricks us into thinking Spring has arrived!  We’ve done a little yard work and I’m itching to put up some happy Spring decor.

I’ve also booked some tickets.  At the end of this month, I’m going to visit my family in Montana.  I just can’t wait to kiss my mom’s sweet cheek and be surrounded by sisters and brothers and nieces and nephews and their sweet little babies!!

What about you?  Do you have any exciting plans for this month?

What I Wore~ Fashion Over 40

February 25, 2015

I can’t begin to tell you how sad I am to see Target leaving Canada.  It was my favorite store to browse in in our little town.  But, even more than that, every time I drove up to it and saw the shiny red painted balls outside, I thought of my sister Becky.  She has a Target close by her house and the (far too seldom) times I visit her, we always make a Target stop…

So, if you’re listening, Target (I’m sure you are? tee hee) ~ although some people have said some awfully mean things about you… I want you to know:

I was a fan.

Before their liquidation process began, my friend gave me the heads up on some really good deals.

So, thank you, Target, for my new $8.00 pair of jeans…

and the $7.00 boyfriend cardigan.

I’m going to miss your pretty store (and your pretty bargains!).



Flower Arrangements

February 19, 2015

I read recently that one of the best things you can do for your home is buy a fresh flower arrangement each week.  Although I love the concept, I find it isn’t always the best idea for the budget!:)  I do however, like to peruse  the fresh flower section of the grocery store just to […]

What I Wore ~ Fashion Over 40

February 18, 2015

I’ve been going through an I’m-just-not-that-into-you stage with dresses for quite some time, now.  I don’t own many, cause I just don’t wear them that often! I’ve been inspired, though, by seeing how creative ladies are in transforming their summer dresses into winter outfits. I had some time today to experiment with a dress I’ve […]

3 Ideas for Using Paint in Tabletop Decor

February 12, 2015

Have you ever had one of those weeks where your to do list was turned right on its head?  That’s been my week.  I’d hoped to have a whole bunch of painting projects finished by now, but alas, I haven’t had the time to even open the closet door, let alone reach for the paintbrush!! […]

What I Wore – Fashion Over 40

February 11, 2015

The truth is, I’m not travelling anywhere soon ~ unless you count the trip I’m taking to my magical hairdresser this afternoon!:) However, I realized that today’s outfit is actually my favorite travelling outfit.  I did, in fact, wear it on a trip to Alberta last month with my husband. In my humble opinion, the […]

Mom’s Lullaby

February 10, 2015

I distinctly remember when the grieving started.  I had just spent 7 exhausting days in Montana.  The details are a complete blur, but I remember they included doctor visits, phone calls, late night conversations, family meetings, and a confirmed diagnosis of dementia for my mom.  I tried to stay calm and level headed during those […]

I Spy {A Link to Make you Laugh!}

February 6, 2015

I got majorly sidetracked this week.  I totally intended to get a whole bunch of painting projects done here at home to go with this month’s painting theme. But, I also needed to do some work scheduling blog posts and social media for the camp. I’ve been spending hours writing, scheduling, and looking through thousands […]

You’re the One that I Want

February 5, 2015

I’ve been humming a little ditty ever since I saw this little youtube video recently.   (If it doesn’t show up on your device, click here) As a total aside ~I admire Olivia and John’s pluck with this song…but the part I really love is right around the 2 minute mark where they both go […]

What I Wore ~ Fashion over 40

February 4, 2015

I remember when ankle boots first came out.  I thought they were the strangest things ever… But, I guess after seeing thousands of outfits with them, I began to get used to their look, and decided I’d jump right in ~ with both feet!  (pun intended!) I researched and researched “how to wear ankle boots”.  […]
