I will be doing a repost of my Hawaii trip so that everyone can see the pictures without squinting!

Well friends I was over on the blog living from glory to glory reading about the "Great Apron Swap" when I couldn't help, but notice her lovely music. In the background was playing the Island version of "Over the Rainbow" which I love by the way. However, it got me to thinking that I have not posted about my lovely vacation.

So, now seems like a great time... other than the fact that I should be doing my homework : )

We had a great time. We took Military flights most of the way there and back, which is very adventurous if I do say so my self. You never quite know when your coming or going and sometime even where it is you'll end up, but the price can't be beat! FREE!

We stayed two nights at the Military Resort the Hale Koa and the rest of our night with my cousins family. We were able to see him only one night, the night we arrived and he went back down on the submarine the next day.

Please enjoy!

Master Bedroom

Redecorating project: Master Bedroom
The old wall color. Dark grey with darker
gray baseboards. So dreary.
The new tan with the old grey.
I haven't painted the half bath in our bedroom yet,
so it is still the dark grey, but the bathroom has a bonus
concrete type of pho finish.
Our new bedspread. Just needs a decorative pillow. And a decoration behind the bed. I painted the bed frame brown to match the trim, but you can't even see it now with all the bedding!
The wall color is Herb Tea. It's a little brighter than I had expected,
but I like it and can always change it in a year or so when I'm tired of it.
The curtains are reversible. I had them on the brown side with gold leaves at first
But when I put on the new comforter it was a little too dark so I flipped them to the gold side.
We will get new bedroom furniture someday... for now this is what ours looks like.
I changed the trim from dark grey to chocolate brown. I like it very much!
Here you can see very well the contrasting colors. Tan, green, and brown.
This flooring is on of my favorite things in the room. I don't know why
everything is underlined on this caption. Oh well!

I still need to get decorations. I would like to get some pretty sconces with a leafy look, a mirror or hanging jewelry box, a rug, and an ottoman/storage box for the foot of the bed. Oh and a new bedroom set! )

Take care!

Never Forget

Dear Lord,

Today we remember the tragedy that hit our Nation on 9/11/2001. We remember the lives that were lost, the families that were left heart broken and our Military Men and Women who are and have been over seas fighting for our safety every since. We remember the way people filled our churches after these attacks and pray that their hearts will be once again turned toward you, through your Son Jesus by the power of your Holy Spirit.

Lord you have not forgotten us, let our hearts not grow cold towards you.

In the name of Jesus




Well, hello there again. It's been a while and I have a lot to catch you up on
like vacation, school, and my house... but, today I'm only going to tell you
about my Goodwill find. I always see everyone posting all their great thrift store and
garage sale finds, but I never find anything good. Until today!

Today I woke up late piddled on the computer until it was time to go to Julie's Baby shower
then met Marie at her house and we drove over together. We had a great time! I met Julie when she was Marie's neighbor and she threw little Zane's baby shower. Now Julie and I sometimes see each other at the gym and chat about stuff and when we last saw Marie. : ) Julie is having a little boy and it was such a fun shower. There were just a few ladies, mostly Julie's family, but I love small groups over a lot of people.

After the party I dropped Marie off at home and decided to pull into the Goodwill on my way home. I was looking at pictures to go in my country room then turned around and much to my delight I saw this:

Of course I was delighted! I called BJ right away and told him that I was buying it. I have been
wanting a rocker for so long and I found this beautiful rocker for $20.00!
And since I was taking these pictures of the chair I decided to take pictures of the whole room I put it in. Enjoy, and take care!

I also got these two little pieces today for $.99 each
My cousin bought us this expensive comforter set for our wedding, and I love it.
I am doing our bedroom in a different style now, but did not want this lovely set to
to go to waste, so I am doing our spare bedroom in a country theme.
My closet is in the spare room so I don't wake my love in the mornings.
I got this sweet little bear at an auction a little while back, she was in a box
with a few other bears for $4.00. BJ doesn't like her but I think she is
adorable and fits in perfectly in this little country room!
Ps. My sister gave me the lace curtain and some shelving out of her garage sale stuff for free!
