About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Peas, Corn and Venison, oh my!

We just returned from a trip to Mississippi to see family.  Dad and Glenda sent us home with 38 bags of peas, 50 ears of corn and some ground deer meat.  I bought a stand up freezer from Craigslist just to store my  goodies.  I picked the peas while I was home in July, but Dad, Mom and Glenda did the real work.  They planted, weeded, watered and put up the vegetables. 

We left Starkville at 7:00 a.m. this morning.  Glenda strolled through the door at Mom and Dad’s house a little after 6:00 a.m. saying, “I came to load your cooler for you.  I don’t want our hard work to ruin during your drive.”  She and Dad did such a great job that even after all day in the car, everything was still frozen solid when we got home.  Thanks Dad and Glenda for all the hard work.  Now Mom just has to teach me how to make a decent pone of cornbread and I’m all set.
