Oh Dear! What did I just do?

Well first I am re posting a picture of Earth. I made her for the ADO 4 elements challenge. You can see the original post here. All of the challenge entrants should have their wonderful dolls up and posted to their blogs today. Be sure to go to the ADO blog and check the list of all the entrants blogs! I can't wait to go look at them all! :)

This week has been and will continue to be a grand adventure! A bunch of firsts happening in my small circle. My youngest son just passed his written test and will be taking his driving test tomorrow. Hopefully he remembers you have to drive on the right side of the sidewalk! :D

My oldest son has divulged his plans to move out within the year.....YAY! and sigh :( I have some major conflicting mommy emotions going with this one.

My oldest miss found out she has been accepted into an Irish studies program, and will be abroad in Ireland next school year. I must admit I am a wee bit jealous, but I'll get over myself! What a grand adventure for her. :) The youngest miss is leaving this weekend for a whole week long camp.......WAH! The baby is going to be gone a whole week.........what am I going to do?! I'm going to smile and give her a great big hug, and hope she has lots of fun.

So amidst all these changes and shifts in dynamics, what do I do? I registered for my own domain name and signed up to make my own website......OMG.....What did I just do?! I guess I just set myself up for another grand adventure. LOL and where is husband of wonder during all of this you might ask? :D Dozing in his easy chair.....bless his heart.
Have a grand weekend all.......hope it's an adventure.

Worth Mention!

Just a few awesome etsy sellers and products I think deserve a mention.

First up I just purchased these sweet matchbook Thanks You's to put in my orders. This is such a cute idea, and her prices were right up my alley. I couldn't resist. I bought them at EnchantedByBeka. Bless her heart! I asked for a large order, and she whipped them right out for me in heartbeat. This gal has friendly customer service down pat! There's a bonus to visiting Beka's shop.......she has some of the most romantic and gorgeous jewelry! It'll be worth visiting her shop repeatedly. :)
Recently while wasting time perusing blogland I stumbled on a post about Teddystartedit. I was intrigued with her natural bug repellent, and bite cream. Mosquitoes seem to think I am the local blood bank. I hate the chemical smell of over the counter stuff, as it gives me a bit of a headache. (That can't be good, right?!) So I decided to try out her natural repellent. Ok I tried it and I must say this stuff ROCKS!!! Not a single bite in the last month! It has a nice herbal smell that is in no way over whelming. My daughter did get bitten while she was here...and she stole my Once Bitten Cream....She said the swelling and itch just disappeared. So now I have to order some more of that, and it's definitely worth it!

Just thought they were worth mentioning! Have a grand day Beauties! :)
