It's beginning to look at lot like Christmas!

Hey Yall!

Well, it's Mid-Oct. and I'm already starting to feel behind on all of my holiday prep. I have SUCH a huge surprise for you!!!! I have to give a little background first though...

Levi and I went to LSU. We're LSU fanatics. Our girls have had LSU themed birth announcements, birthday parties, clothes, tatoos ... you name it, we love it! We've even had a bottle of LSU Alumni wine!!!

Well, every year about this time, I start to panic over what to get Levi for Christmas. Last year, Mr. NOT SO Handy got tools. Yep, pretty lame, I know.

But this year, with the move and setting up the house and all, I thought that something for his "study" would be cool. I'm going to be doing an "LSU Lux" theme there. Rich gold walls, Plum colored silks, guilded frames... Get it? I'm happy, He's happy, we'll all be happy when it's done, right?

So a good friend of mine that I met via blogland is a fabulous artist. I have gotten prints, cards, etc. from her in the past. Then she went to Santa Barbara and did these amazing sketches... WELL.... I begged her to do some sketches of some scenes from LSU and she actually agreed!!!! Yeah Me!!!! She just posted about them here and I just KNOW he's going to love them... He may even just cry with joy and amazement!!!

I can't wait to get these guys matted and framed!!! He is just going to LOVE them!

Thanks so much Vana!!! {HUGS!}

Well, Lookie Lookie

HI YALL!!!!!

I have the longest most depressing story to tell, but I just can't bring myself to write much about it. I'll just try to not ramble on too much and focus on the fun things I've been up to, and then get back to the Good Ole Bloggin Days!

So here's the scoop...
We evacuated. Gustav hit. Mom's house flooded. We went home. We moved. Ike hit. We visited Austin and San Antonio. We came back to our temp. apt. with no power. We FINALLY closed on our un-damaged home. AT&T screwed up my DSL AND my Blackberry so I was out of the loop for FAR FAR too long. I'm 3 weeks in and still swimming in boxes. I miss home terribly. I gave him a year.

So that's my story for the past month or so. I hope you don't mind really... I just haven't felt myself lately.

So what do big girls do when they are feeling blue? Come on now... besides DRINK EXCESSIVELY... that was a given, right? No No... I mean what ELSE do we do... You got it!!!


So here's where we stand...

I've nearly gotten the Game room done... it was a priority to get the girls out of my hair so that I could actually attempt to get the rest of the house livable. I'm not finished, but as soon as I find my camera battery charger in the sea of never ending boxes, then i'll take some pics.

I've gotten 1/2 of my sewing room unpacked... fabric refolded and neatly shoved (eh, stored)... and I've recently become the proud new momma to this little baby.... just wait for it... here comes the retail therapy...


Awe..... there there now.... Don't you feel better? I know I sure do... ;-) I'm hoping to get more done in the room today so that I can set her up and pet her !!!!

Yall have a lovely Fall day and do something creative!
