A Few Things I'm Thankful For...

The chance to make some new blocks...
for my NEW Etsy store...
My BEAUTIFUL new cuff...
from Brown Eyed Fox!
Finally...number one thing I am thankful for today...
well, not counting hubby and Allikaye...
ummm...and my mama and dad...
here it is...
No...I'm not thankful for the tornado...
but I AM thankful that...
the beastly thing didn't come to our house...
we didn't have to go hide in our bathroom (no basement)...
and that the bathroom was ready for us...
just in case!
You can make fun of me if you wish...
but I was FREAKIN' out!
I have always been so scared of tornados...
had the dreams that my dad would be watching it, and not taking cover...
dreams that I couldn't find my cat during the storm...
you know...the typical nightmares.
Well...this was the first time it was up close and personal!
AH!
Matt was running outside to take pictures...
while I was loading up the "safest place" with anything I could find!
Here I am after the fact...
Matt wanted to take a picture...
mostly to make fun of me...
but I'm ok with it...
notice the waterbottle...ya need hydration...
and we have the toilet paper ready...
And I am THANKFUL!!

I'm so excited for you!!! Opening up your own Etsy shop, how fun!!! I can't wait to check it out. :) :)

I will be hearting your shop as soon as I log into Etsy!

Also, I would be doing the same thing hiding in the bathroom! That is one of my stipulations when we buy a house it has to have a basement. We even found one we loved, but it didn't have a basement!

Those are neat blocks! I may purchase some in the future. Do you paint the entire thing? I was thinking of you and thought I'd check your website. We still should try to find a time to get together. E-mail me: sheriludlam@yahoo.com
That is the best way these days.
