The Oleg Cassini Wedding Gown!

Nicole and I went into Davids Bridal to look at Bridesmaid Dress and the colors they are available. Then, to my surprise...she said let's look at dresses. She found 3 that looked like possiblities, and now it is fate...the dress she loved, and looked so perfect on Nicole. This beautiful gown is the choice, in an ivory color. It is perfect, stunning, updated ball gown, with wonderful fabrics and details. Wow! I was there with her. I am thrilled!

Thanksgiving Blessings


November Musings


We have a cow who is going to have a calf anytime. I checked her when I fed her this morning and I thought that she might be in labor. It was 19 degrees. She is safe and sound in a box stall, not very happy....but I want that calf to have good conditions for birth. Thanksgiving is upon us...tomorrow! I will be packing up the fall decor and moving to Christmas. We have about 16" of snow, but the weather is going to warm up and melt it. Good!

Learning new things for my blog

Gosh! I just spent 1 1/2 hours attempting to redesign my blog. I used the cutest blogs on the block for a new design. I messed up so many times. I think that I finally got one that I like, and that works. Frustrated...yep.

To Choose

Yes, sometimes it may be easy to let go of restraint and make silly, or "bad" choices. Like food, it is so easy to let go and have whatever....a huge piece of cake for a meal. I believe that there are times to live like that. I haven't baked anything sweet in a long time....and really craved a piece of cake....so I let myself go and really enjoyed the special treat. I chose wisely to take care of myself and to love myself. I have had times in my life when I beat myself up over choices...it was truely terrible. I had depression to go along with it, not a good time. I have been receiving daily messages from the Brave Girls Club for about a year now. Those messages can be extremely mind opening. I have learned from my nearly 59 years, that I should be kind and gentle to myself. I am practicing this belief for a while now... and I find a peacefulness with it.

Be Kind and Gentle to Yourself.

All the comforts of Home.

I have been traveling a bit lately, close to home (within 150 miles). I saw this old wood stove outside a coffeehouse in Brownsville Oregon. I had to share it with everyone. Fall is here, but I am still seeing cool stuff.

The Convertible - A 2001 Audi TT

UPDATE---- This is the car! Need I say much, wow! It is going to be soooooo much fun! I love it and next year it will be turning heads with me in the drivers seat. Yeah!Wow!

Dancing Deer Mountain



I found "The Perfect Location" for Nicole's and Bryan's Wedding, on July 30, 2011. These are photos that I took of Dancing Deer Mountain. This is a private residence, that has this wonderful place for weddings and other events. It is so perfect....I love it. The lower photo is of the walk for the bride to make her entrance. There will be chairs on the grass, and the deck area at the bottom of the slope will be beautifully arranged. There are enough trees to nicely shade the area for a July wedding, so it will be comfortable for everyone.
Check out their website. Dancingdeermountain. The location is a few miles from Junction City, Oregon. There were actually deer there when hubby and I visited.

I am so happy that this site was available. :)
