Can you believe it is suppose to snow tomorrow?  Brian is working tomorrow and we are hopefully going to stay inside where it is warm. 

We are getting our electrical problem fixed today at our house.  If it is not one thing it is another, so much for leveling the house.  After all is said and done we are probably going to have to rewire the whole house.  The wiring is the original wiring from the 40’s, back when they took a wire wrapped it around a glass breaker, then strung it down to the next one.  Brian found two live wires, hotwired together by a cutoff extension cord the other night.  Needless to say, HUGE fire danger.  We had to cut the power, and black tape those two wires together, well, in that process Brian lost his light in his bathroom.  Oh well, the house is old and we knew that going into it.  After we fix everything in that house that needs to be fixed, it will be like a brand new house!  There are many things on my want-to-do list, those will come with time and money!

Anyway, I hope I get a chance to sew a little bit this weekend!  I need to go buy some thread! 

Also, I am hosting a free couponing class on April 11th.  It will be at First Baptist Church in Marlow at 1:00 pm.  This lady from Yukon will come down and teach us how to get the most out of our coupons and where to find the most valuable ones.  I am so excited!  Ya’ll are all invited!

Also, has everyone heard that they are turning the Pioneer Woman’s love story into a movie!  I am so excited for that!!  Also, did you know that she is coming to Duncan, yep, she is speaking at the DRHHF Ladies Luncheon!  And she will be signing cookbooks!  I love, love, love her cookbook, if you don’t have it, run out and get it!! NOW!

Elmo Live…

Ok, so we took the plunge and went to see Elmo Live on Sunday. We got there early and drove around the Cox Center only twice until we found the box office. We were still early so we took Gracie to Bass Pro. If you know us at all, we are not “Bass Pro” kind of people. However, we bought jerky, jerky marinade, and some really cool storage trays for my crafts, but I think they were suppose to be for fishing lures, etc… Who cares, that is what I am going to use them for, plus we bought a few extra for the men in our family, so they can use them for their nuts & bolts, fishing lures, or whatever else it is that men have a lot of. Gracie did get to see the fish in the tank, so she was excited about that. Then it was time for the show, so off we went. Got into the Cox Center, and it was absolutely freezing. We all had goose bumps, it was so cold. At one point, I think Gracie’s lips turned blue. She watched the show, and was so mesmerized by all the singing and dancing. It was so great to see her so happy!

At intermission, she looked at us, and said It’s over. She was cold and hungry, and since we won tickets instead of buying them, we left. Her attention span was lost anyway. But not before asking for a $10 mylar Elmo balloon, which I lied and said they were only for the kids on the floor seats. Of course, I got caught lying, because some idiot beside us actually paid the $10.00 for a balloon that would have cost her $2.00 at Homeland. And she bought two of them. CRAZY!!

We then went to Carlito’s in Tri-City, which was awesome, as always. You have to try it if you ever go that way, they also own Las Fajitas in Moore, same food, same great & fast service!!! Get the steak chili rellano, it is the best! (I should get free food for talking up their restaurant, no really, I should)

Oh yeah, and by the way, I got a sewing machine on Saturday, so get ready for those pictures! My aunt taught me how to make a pair of shorts!

Here are a few pictures of Gracie at Elmo Live:

Hello All

Well, this is the second week with Pinky, and I think we are starting to get in a routine.  I wake up an extra 20 minutes early, let her out, feed her, jump in the shower, get out, clean up poop, put on makeup, clean up pee, fix breakfast & hair, get Gracie ready, get myself dressed, let Pinky out and nothing.  Of Course not, she already went all in the house.  Today we put her in her “Cave” as Gracie calls in and we will see how she does in it.  I know, I am asking too much, she is only 7 weeks old.

Oh another note, we are going to have a full fledge fun filled weekend!  I can’t wait for Jacob’s party tomorrow, and to look at my new sewing machine, and then ELMO LIVE!!  Whoohoo!!  We will definitely have fun.

Coming Soon

Ok, so I learned how to crochet over the Thanksgiving holiday.  I mastered the scarf, and moved on to hats.  Figured those out, moved to headbands, now on to flowers and I made this little cute thing from a pattern I bought.  It is absolutely adorable on and Gracie loves hers.


I will be selling these in the next few months and of course you could always pre-order one for next winter :)  I haven’t quite figured out how to make them really fast, so it might take me a while.

Also, I am getting a sewing machine this weekend, and I am so excited!  Learning a new craft!

March of Dimes

Ok, so it is that time of year, where Gracie and I will be walking with the Caldwell Twins in the annual March of Dimes walk.  Brian is going to have to miss out again this year, because of work.  I sure hope it doesn’t rain us out like last year, so Gracie can actually go!  I walked in the pouring rain, while Gracie was at Amie’s house.  Here is my sponsor page:

Thanks!  Love ya’ll Gena

Did I mention we got a new dog…

Yes, her name is Princess Pinkalicious, Pinky for short.  She is a schnauzer, and is very playful!  Gracie loves to help take care of her, but she doesn’t like her biting and scratching.
