Hi all. Stopping in to say hello. Dustin's surgery went well on Monday. We are still in the hospital and have had some speed bumps over the past couple days, but they continue to monitor him closely and we will eventually get home :)
Just wanted to share that my fun and something-other-than-just-crafty blog is up and running :) Did I mention I have a giveaway for a gift certificate to a great place going on???
I'd love to have you come over and follow:)
Pretty please with a cherry on top :)
You know I'd be happy to return the favor!!
Much love to you all and thank you so much for your fab thoughts and prayers!!!

Challenge day at FCCB! Today's challenge is Summer Time at the Beach: Create a project for summer using something you would find at the beach.
Well, you know I love my flip flops! SO, another flip flop banner was in order :)
Can't do a beach without flip flops :)

Happy Father's Day!!!! Last Monday was my daddy's birthday and I love when I can celebrate him 2 weeks in a row!:) He is the most AMAZING man. A hard working farmer who taught us kids to appreciate the Earth, the animals, the land. To enjoy the simple things in life, to not sweat the small stuff, to pray, to love, to give second chances, to believe in each other, and to appreciate every minute I get on this planet. That growing up on a farm is such a blessing. He taught me that a good name is more important than a bank account. He is my hero and I love him more than he will ever be able to comprehend.
ANd here is my Daddy I love so much :)

Hey everyone. Well, I will be MIA over the next little bit. Another ER visit Tuesday (We had to go Friday too) (He had a six shot spinal cath done Thursday that really aggravated the area and Dust said he was in more pain than when he had to have a discogram nicknamed "Scream-O-Gram" done last summer) night with my hubby and the surgeons decided to do back surgery this MONDAY. Yeah. Again. For the 3rd time. For those who want to read the background on all this here is the post from before surgery in November and before the surgery in August and here is the drama we have been dealing with b/c of this procedure, and here is the post about hubby's Marfan's which is the reason all these things happen. I don't expect you to read or want to read all this, but for those who have emailed me asking for more details..here you go :)
Today is a new day adn there is HOPE this surgery will help. I have so much FAITH in the 2 surgeons performing the surgery. (They happen to be friends with Dustin's uncle who is a ortho surgeon as well, so we stay in the loop :) and LOVE and the Blessings of God will make it all okay! Also pray Matthew is good and not too homesicj for me while I am away. THANK THE LORD for my parents and sister. THey are a God send, ecspecially when the going gets tough!
Life is so precious! Off to spend quality time with my family!
Eye candy though:)

Just as an FYI, I have not been ignoring everyone. All of the posts the last week were prescheduled. A longtime friend from my "past" was brutally killed last weekend and it has been a rough week. I went to the services on Sunday and after getting to hug his family and send my condolences, I am dealing with the shock much better. I will be back on board in a few. Please pray for justice and healing for his family.
Live each day to it's fullest.

Here is a quick LO I did, nothing fancy. Just the before, during, and after pics of my little bull rider :) He LOVES the PBR and bull riding. He will seriously "bull ride" until he passes out, as evident in the last pic :) I love the sticker that says "Champions are born. They're raised 8 seconds at a time." LOVE IT! Cowboy Up!
