New Linky Party


There's a new party in blogland!!!


Wondering what that is???....Every week the link up party will be a theme...Example: Pinterest, by color, by room, DIY, book, recipe, indoor, outdoor, photo...etc...

My goal is to make it fun and bring in a wide range of ideas and things to "My Crazy Beautiful Life"...BUT, You guys get to pick the theme...So every week at the link up party, you will need to leave a comment to what theme you would like to see on Pick-a-Theme Thursdays...

On "Pick-A-Theme" Thursday...I will let you know what the theme is for the following week!!!

You also have a chance to be "The Queen"....


I will be featuring some favorite party themes...

So grab the "Pick-a-Theme" Party button and pass the word on and get ready to party tomorrow..

The 1st linky party theme is "Anything Goes"...And that means "Link anything you would like"....

ANY IDEAS OR THOUGHTS ON THE "PICK-A-THEME" THURSDAY'S PARTY???

Saying it "ONCE"...

This is "MY" blog...journal...life...motivation...inpiration...friend connection...ETC..

This is where "I"...talk about life...DIY projects...family...decorating ideas...memories...ETC...

Bottom line...I do what "I" want here and if you are going to say something "MEAN" don't bother..
 "I" will "DELETE" it...

I don't care what "I" say...what "I" do...or how "I" say it...

"MY" grammer is not the best...."I" use slang and sometimes "I" make up my own words..."I" make run-on sentences and "I" make no sense at all...

But, you see "I" don't care...if "YOU" don't like it or feel the need to correct me or say something rude...
Then "PLEASE" -"SHUT IT" and "DON'T COME BACK"!!!!

You see..."I AM NOT PERFECT"!!
(and news flash...neither are "YOU")

Thanks to those who want to be here and enjoy "MY" rambling!!!

SO, PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU REALLY THINK???
(BUT, LEAVE YOUR NAME SO I CAN TELL "YOU" WHAT "I" THINK)

Hormone Replacement Update Week 1

If you have read my blog than you know that I am going through hormone replacement therapy…if not you can read it here

A week ago I had my first HR Implant and other then the red welt on my ASS because of the bandage (adhesive allergy)… I’m doing OK!!!

This is what my life was like…



(I had a hysterectomy at 25...I try to use menopause as an excuse...LOL)

Itchy…oh yes!!! and to think I thought I just had dry skin or would blame the weather…I guess I was wrong…

Update: The itchy dry skin seems to be calming down

Bitchy…Depends who you ask…LOL

Update: My moods seem to be doing better

Sweaty…Not too bad…only when I was trying to sleep…

Update: Covers on…Covers off

Sleepy…Oh what I would do to sleep (Ambien don’t count)

Update: I’m taking progesterone and it seems to be helping…I still have a hard time falling asleep and wake up in the night but I do feel more rested in the morning than before…

Bloated…Wasn’t an issue…

Forgetful…I thought I was on my way to Alzheimer's…it is awful how forgetful I am..

Update: Don’t notice much of a difference in that area yet…

Psycho…What woman isn’t???

Update: Still crazy!!!

It’s suppose to take 1-3 weeks for me to notice a change…I feel like I have more energy...
(it could be all in my head)

Week one down...Two more to go...

I will be the life of the party in no time…

Table Top Decor

Have you ever just walked around your house and knew there was an area that just needed something???
I do that all the time (hence, the shelf dilemma’s)

This time it was my kitchen table…I liked the runner I had on the table but the centerpiece was just not cutting it for me…

Temp Blog 005

It was time to get creative and off to Michael’s I went…(I just love this store)
Secretly: I wish there was a hobby lobby close….

Table Top Decor

I love finding deals and than having a 50% off coupon…woo hoo Party smile!!
(Happy Dance)

I like to change things so often I hate to make it permanent…So all I did was poor sand in the bottom of the vase to hold the flowers in place…

Table Top Decor-1

I just arranged the flowers and added the moss…

Temp Blog 020

Love the moss but boy did it make a messsssss…….

Temp Blog 021

Nothing a vacuum clean can’t pick up…
Now that I have the centerpiece all together it’s time to see it on the table…

Temp Blog 025

That is so much better….My table now has some personality!!

Here’s the Before & After…

Table Top Decor-2

What do you think???
I am always open for decorating suggestions!!!

DMV...Oh how I hate you!!!

Where is the worst place in the world to go??? NC DMV

Where do people send you if they want to be cruel??? NC DMV

Where can you go to get tortured??? NC DMV

Horrible horrible place....


After 3 trips due to the failure of letting me know the FIRST time what was needed...Two trips were made today...If I didn't have a daughter pestering me to go get her learner's permit...I would have given up after the first trip...

But, NOOOOO!!

I'm a good mommy :)
(Repeat several times)

After 3 trips we finally had everything they needed...
Thank you for giving me my number B332... Oh look they are only on B221...

GRAB A SEAT!!!!
(you will be here a while)

And be here awhile is an understatement...

3 HOURS LATER!!!

B332 "We are ready for you"...
This is not the best part...

3 trips and 3 hours later...

I am NOT going back to the DMV!!!
(atleast until I cool down)

IS THERE A PLACE YOU ALWAYS HAVE A BAD EXPERIENCE???

Spiced Up IKEA Expedit

If you know me or have been following my crazy life then you know that my SHELVES drive me nuts...

I love them but decorating them is quite the adventure...

Place objects on shelve...step back and look...take objects off and move to another shelf...step back and look...REPEAT!! (for months)

Makes me "CRAZY"!!!

One of the shelves I have is the IKEA expedit and I love it because of the all the dividers...just if I can get them decorated to my satisfaction...
(Are we ever really satisfied???)

I vote NO!!!

My expedit has wicker baskets...love them...and drawers and cabinets...which I love as well...great storage...It's just they make the darn things "White" and to me it's distracting...

See what I mean???

No matter where you put them the eye just stops...boring!!!

If you sit and look at something long enough you get an apiffany (my big word for the day)

I busted out some supplies...

It was time to give my expedit a makeover...


Don't you just love mod podge??


I took them boring...eye sore...white drawers/doors and gave them a much needed face lift...
(Boy do I wish mod podge could do that to my face..lol)

Ready for the big reveal???

Taaa Daaa....


What a difference...it gave my expedit some chicness...

I went from BORING....

To fabulous....


Now I will stare at it as it sits on the wall across from my desk and work on getting the decor where I want it...But for now I don't have "WHITE" distracting doors/drawers...

I'm open to shelf decor ideas!!!

TELL ME ABOUT A MOD PODGE IDEA YOU HAD TO REVAMP SOMETHING???
