These little turtles are so sweet! The pattern is amazing! My dear friend's entire family has been slowing getting a turtle of their own from Grandpa's sweater. He had 8 children, so I have been busy. The turtles get a little crazy while waiting for their new homes. I find them all over the house, playing with the toys, climbing into craft supplies, even out in the garden!

"As I grow in age I value women who are over 30 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:
A woman over 30 will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask "What are you thinking" She doesn't care what you think.
If a women over 30 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And, it's usually something more interesting.
A woman over 30 knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few women past the age of 30 give a damn what you might think about her or what she is doing.
Women over 30 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course if you deserve it they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.
Older women are generous with praise often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated.
A woman over 30 has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn't trust the guy with other women. Women over 30 couldn't care less if your attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won't betray her.
Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 30. They always know.
A woman over 30 looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women.
Once you get past a wrinkle or two a woman over 30 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.
Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk or if you are acting like one! You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her.
Yes we praise women over 30 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately its not reciprocal.
For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of 30+, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year-old waitress.
For all those men that say, " Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free". Here is an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage, why? Because women realize it is not worth buying an entire PIG, just to get a little sausage.

Please take the time to watch this wonderful video. The song is so true. No one ever plans for their family not to be "perfect". We all plan our lives based on "perfect". The "it will never happen to me" mentality. My sweet nephew Carter was born with Angelman Syndrome. My sister, his mom, is my BEST friend in the whole world. We live 4 minutes from each other. We wanted to raise our kids as siblings, not just cousins, yeah we are that close and crazy! Our lives are still close and TIGHTLY entwined. Her son Carter is turning 5 this month and our lives are FAR from the "perfect" lives we always had planned. Life is HARD! I encourage you to familiarize yourself with this syndrome. Awareness is half the battle in receiving proper funding for a cure. We are walking as a family this Saturday to support our Carter Bug. Feel free to click on the link on my sidebar. It is not just to donate, but is a great site for help and information. If you would like to join us to walk this weekend we would LOVE it!

I got these organic cotton matching numbers at Walmart both for 5.50! They are sooooo cute!Look at this SPIDER I, Gina, found just outside of our garage! Thank heavens it was dead already, because I don't think I could have stepped on it! It would have crunched like a mouse or other small animal. Ewwwwwww. I can't even think about it. Worse I hope there isn't some big family of Tarantulas living in my garage or worse my house!!! I couldn't find a penny for size reference so I used a pack of gum. Remember it is DEAD so I think it looks smaller with it's legs all curled under it. This thing is fuzzy my friends. Can you see its eyes? I put it in an artichoke jar for Gina to take in to her class tomorrow. ( Sorry Miss Bode)

Since Gina got her ears pierced last year her earring collection has been growing. She informed me that she needed some place to keep them all. We looked all over for a cute affordable earring tree and found nothing we liked. I thought there has to be a way to make one. This project is super affordable and in my opinion super cute. I had all of the supplies on hand, but even if you need to purchase them you will spend less than $3!!!
