I'm going to check this link again next year and see how it panned out! In the meantime:

In my little Christmas village, Santa is still handing out gifts and the Richingtons are still out visiting, but here at home we are all holiday-ed out!

And below is a gratuitous self-portrait. This is what I wore for my job interview last week. The good news is that we all got hired on with the new management company! I was playing around with the new features on picnik. This is supposed to be me 39% thinner! Yikes! But, it's okay.

Sweet Carmen moved away to Tennessee this month with her beloved Jeremy.
Poor little Yoda had to be put down.
My new, wonderful boss found a new job and left me.
My employer is severing it's contract with the HOA I work at, so in about six weeks I may be unemployed.
It can only go up from here. Right?

And now...uhh...well...what good looking, portly middle aged people! This is my brother's wedding in 2003. Actually- he looked good then and he looks even better today.

Ugghh! No wonder I'm ready for a change. Especially since this entire color scheme was chosen to accomodate him. I didn't hate it, but it never felt like "me". Hope you all have a lovely week!

Afterwards, the girly and I decided to hit Goodwill and check out the treasures. I don't know if it was the waffles or what, but we had such a bad case of the sillies! It seemed as if everything we saw was a visual treat. Like this lovely very vinyl purse:

I hope you are all enjoying a blessed day. The kids and I will be taking dinner to my brother, Jonathan, tonight who is in the hospital, but coming home tomorrow. He was driving his little Honda scooter and got hit by a car! This was two weeks ago and it's been a really tough time for him. His left leg was broken in a really horrific way and they couldn't even put the plates and pins in until this past Thursday because there was so much swelling. There was so much damage due to road rash on the skin that they had to do a skin graft. Bless his heart, he has been so great through this. And, of course, we are just so thankful that it wasn't worse!
Yesterday, Kelly and I set this up for our six (!) kids so they could make these:I don't care how old these kids get, they still love to make Easter eggs! Actually, I have to qualify that last bit. Carmen was not here so it was five kids. She spent Spring Break in Colorado with her dear friend. She tried to ski and found out that she inherited the "no ski" gene! Sorry Carmen!
Well, I'm off to munch on jelly beans! Hugs out to all!

Just Beachy is one of my newest favorite blogs because she has a passion for coastal style, which is a look that I am loving lately. I used to be quite a snob about coastal style- I felt that if you didn't live near a coast, then you shouldn't fling it all over your house! But now that I am dreaming of a future on the coast, it's become my obsession! I love to be surrounded by images and objects of the beach that inspire me to keep moving forward.
I don't know where I'd ever find the time and resources to re-do my living room in the next couple of years, but if I could, I would definitely give it a beachy-vibe. Not outrageously done with seagulls and such all over the place, but just a comfortable, inviting room that gently references the sea. A soft soothing shade of ocean blue (like Chris's) on the walls, some natural sea grass baskets with shells in them and that's about it. Ahhh, wouldn't it be loverly?
Hugs to all!

Here's a closer view, but sadly, I can't capture the "glow" of the alabaster. It's just so pretty. How do you like my little mermaid bendy doll? She was a custom order from Princess Nimble Thimble. Her name is Libby Oceana and she encourages me to remember my long term goal of life in Morro Bay when I get discouraged by all the work and study. Isn't she so cute?
Well, that's it for now- back to the chillaxin'! I'll have to leave for work soon enough! I wish you all a lovely day- whether it's football or NOT!

It's been a tough week here. I can't go into details, but a dear family member is in the hospital, so prayers for my family are welcome. There has also been a bright spot, unexpectedly, but it's too soon to talk about that. We will see if the bright spot remains just that, like Yoda's spotlight, or if it grows into something more...
Wishing you all a lovely weekend with the people you love.
