I would walk 500 miles....

I thought everyone would get a kick out of this....I had a mix CD playing (upbeat stuff to keep me dancing while I am cleaning) and the boys were dancing. When I took these pics...500 Miles by the Proclaimers was on! Such a hilarious song and the boys were just dancing and TOOO cute! LOL ( living room is UNfinished...LOL...that's why it isn't "pretty" in there)

And....just because I love my dining room...I took a few pics of in there...notice my new table runner...i love it! The star things on it are actually hot pads that I just laid there! And an oil lamp...i LOVE those...aren't they beautiful?

Chris, the kids and I have tried to eat by oil lamp for supper (when it was dark out earlier) and let me tell was NOT an easy task! LOL You can barely see your food or each now it is just there for looks!

I am also including these pics so Chris can see some "home" while he is away!!! :) If you would like to see more pics of my HERE! (Chris...if you are reading this..make sure you go down to the next is especially for you!!! xoxo) I am having a home and garden party tonight. It's another great way to keep me busy! It should be fun! :)

  13. I give thanks for the gift of music-I can't sing or dance but me and my twins turn up the music when daddy's out and dance all over the house!! It is so distracting which is usually what I need!!! Hope all is going well while your husband is away-many blessings!!

  14. I want to go live with you OR have you come decorate my house? Either way I'm flexible LOL

    I just LOVE your house :)

    And I LOVE that song, it used to be one of my favorites at the time it came out and I still get a laugh out of it nowadays :)

    Hope this time away from Chris is not too hard for you and the kids, but being a military wife and having had to endure these separations often, I know otherwise. I'm thinking of you all and keeping you in my prayers.
