Ya Gotta Get One..

Okay, so anyone who knows me knows how I feel about supporting Breast Cancer Research and Awareness.
Well, hubby called me this morning and asked me to get on line and order him this t-shirt. He wouldn't tell me what it was (wanted me to see for myself), so I went and checked it out. When I seen it there was no hesitation, I ordered it right then and there. I almost ordered one for myself too, which I still may. ;)

Isn't it awesome?! I love it!

Click on the pic to see a bigger image and to order.

The shirts are only $15 and all the proceeds go to M.D Anderson Cancer Center.
If you aren't familiar with M.D.A Cancer Center, they are the best.
My grandma, grandpa, dad & myself have all been patients and gotten our treatments there. My dad was actually told that there was a 5% chance that his treatment would even help. Well he has been completely cancer free for about 8 years; and I have been cancer free for 11 years. (My grandparents have since passed from other causes).

It's a good cause.

Be sure and let me know if you decide to get one.

Getting Ready for the Move...

Hey y'all...
Soooo sorry for the long absence.
Been fighting the flu for over 3 weeks now and haven't been able to completely shake it. Along with being sick, I have been trying to get things packed up.
Yep, we are moving.. We found a place in the country so we decided to buy it and sell our house that we just had built 2 1/2 years ago. And ya know, I am sooo ready..
I have to tell ya, it may seem like the best thing to be able to build a house in a brand new neighborhood. Everything is all nice and shiny and new; but seriously... be careful.
We love our house and we really like most of our neighbors but it's the developer mostly that has caused so much grief.
When we bought into this neighborhood we were the 11th home built. There were a lot of promises made for what would and would not happen as the neighborhood developed. None of which have held true. And to top it off, one of the builders went bankrupt and left about 1/3 of the lots undeveloped and you know what that does to property values.
Anyways.. Longer story short... We found a place that we love about an hour & a half out of the city and on the lake, so we are movin' on out the first of November.
I probably won't be posting much until we get settled in but there will be a lot more DIY posts and before/after pics then. :)

Hope everyone is doing well and I will talk to ya soon.
