The Absent Blogger....




I love this quote....it is what I try to live by.



I am so sorry that I have not blogged for 2 weeks! We had Spring Break, in which I thoroughly enjoyed with my family, and then it was back to school and busy, busy for us! I have so many blogs to catch up on and so much to add to mine. Stay tuned!! I am hoping to catch up on them today...that is, after Maddie's softball practice and mounds of laundry to do! Ahhhh.....(sigh).

Have a blessed Sunday afternoon!

Happy Sunday!!!

It is a GORGEOUS day here in TEXAS!
SPRING has finally arrived.......

Make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep y...ou from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

-2 Peter 1:5-8

I have been absent for a week or so......it has been so busy at our house!

However.....it is SPRING BREAK here....and for the first time in many years, we are staying home! We always go on a trip, but this year we have decided to stay home and actually relax and get some much needed things done around the house on our time off! No practices, games, lessons, or anything for the kids......YAY....a REAL break! I have had my list ready for weeks and I am ready to get started on it....along with doing some FUN things with my kiddos too!

I can actually BLOG again too....and plan on spending this evening watching all of the DVR'd shows that I have missed this week, and catching up on all of my favorite blogs...there are 100's!!

For now....today....I am going to get outside and enjoy this GLORIOUS, BEAUTIFUL Sunday!

Very, Very Extra-Ordinary





I love me.....
You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserves your love and affection.

Oscars Fashion....

Oscars....I watch it to see all of the FAB fashions! What about you??

My FAV fashion icon is the one and only SJP! Loved her in this pale yellow Chanel Couture dress and Fred Leighton jewels. It was stunning!

I also loved her hair and make up!

Very Hollywood!

Another FAV dress of the night.....and my FAV for best actress. I think we were all rootin' for her! Sandra Bullock was wearing a gorgeous metallic silver Marchesa dress. Very Glam! I loved her sleek hair and simple jewelry.

Another VERY Hollywood dress and look....GORGEOUS!


Carrie Mulligan's modern but very glam look in this black strapless Prada dress. I love the cropped front showing her strappy Prada shoes. The long chandelier earrings with her short hair and bare shoulders look lovely.

Okay...now this is a DRESS!!
Marisa Hargitay's Vera Wang dress and Fred Leighton jewelry is classic.
I love the tied sash, ruffled edges and ruched top. Just so pretty!
This is something I would wear....

not that I woud have anywhere to wear it to!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I LOVED seeing Sandra win!! Well deserved and a LOVELY and heartfelt speech!
And how about the very first female to win best director....Katherine Bigelow! And she beat out her ex-husband and Avatar?? Now that is sweeet! Ha ha...just kidding, but you know he is dying!
