Well today is day 16 of my 24 day challenge with AdvoCare. I have lost 10 pounds so far and my energy level is higher than it's ever been. My husband and I feel that these products far surpass anything you can get in the health food stores. I will keep you all updated on my weight loss/inch loss. My goal is to lose at least 80 pounds. Well now 70. hee Ü If you are interested in learning more about AdvoCare products, please email me and I'll answer any questions you may have!

May Happenings

I can hardly believe it's the end of May already. Our weather seems to think it's still February but I know that summer is around the corner somewhere!

I have been crafting my little heart out lately. I haven't taken the time to take pictures or post about most of the items I've made but I decided to share the tags I made for a blog hosted tag swap for May. It's hosted by Marie over at The Pretty Paper Boutique
Here are some pictures of my tags...

I also had the opportunity to take a class with my mom this last Saturday. We learned how to needle tat. My mother has been shuttle tatting for years and my grandmother also shuttle tatted. I've tried but just couldn't seem to get the hang of shuttle tatting. We thought maybe needle tatting would be a bit easier with the same results and we were right! I had so much fun. I did have a bit of trouble and did not finish my project in class. I came home and worked with a larger thread and was able to get the hang of it. Now I am ready to start some different projects and learn how to read various patterns. I am really excited to be able to carry on the art of tatting that has been around for centuries! Here is a picture of my completed project and one of the thread and needle.

So the end of school is only one week away and the girls are aching to do fun things. I will post pictures of our various adventures as they take place!

Our new van

We got this van with the settlement money from the accident. It's a 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan. We love it!

Car Accident

Well, yesterday was an adventure! I was driving my 19 year old daughter to a friends house and some boys pulled out in front of us. I was probably going about 50-55 mph. Our van is pretty much totaled. The boys from the other car and us all walked away which is awesome praise God! All the airbags went off so I have some burns and bruising. I'm a little sore and so is my daughter. Here are some pictures of the van.
