Something Little That I Had To Do

Image
We've been in our house in Florida for a few years and we have made a lot of changes, (and I will be sharing them with you soon), but I want to show you this easy change that makes me happy. When you move into a new to you house there's always a long list of "things I want to do" and "things I need to do". This fell under the "need to do" category. I know some people would probably wonder why or even prefer the before picture, but I couldn't stand it anymore. It was my downstairs bathroom light fixture. Here's the before picture: Not too bad, right? Nothing against anyone who has these lights, but they're definitely not anything I would pick. I lived with them for a few years, always thinking that I need to change them someday. I stared at them every time I went in there and grumbled to myself how much I hated them. Then one day while at Lowes buying paint for one of my many projects I saw these wire light cages (or whatever they a

Blogging Again

So..... here I am. I may be the only person to ever see this but oh well, it is what it is. It's almost the New Year...2021, thank God...right.? Usually this is the time of the year when everyone talks about resolutions but this year is different. This New Year's Eve is all about leaving that burning dumpster fire of a year behind. It's about trying to function in our "new normal" (and yes, I hate that phrase as much as you probably do). This upcoming year is also about trying to keep everyone safe. So instead of talking about normal New Year's junk I'm just going to wish everyone a happy and healthy one. I do have to say that I am going to try and be on here more. I have tons of photos of previous projects that I want to share with all of you. I also have stories to share with you about my job. Being a flight attendant gives you no shortage of those. I also will share some pictures from my trips, nothing really glamorous, just stuff that catches me eye. O

For Just A Moment

Just a quick post of one of my favorite pictures. This was taken from the plane on one of the many redeye flights that I have worked. These flights are always very peaceful. The passengers are mostly sleeping as we make our way through the night sky. My favorite part is when the dawn is just breaking and the sun is waking up. It's always so beautiful watching the sun rise.... It kind of brings everything into perspective and makes me forget about the struggle and worries of everyday life. It makes me take a moment and just be thankful for what I do have. Sometimes I just need to step back and remember these things. Watching the sun rise always has a way of making me do that.

This just makes me smile. I’m definitely enjoying the Florida weather. Do I miss the cold and snow?...not really :)

Forgotten Joys

So here I am. Is anyone out there, still?.... I think I hear crickets and the wind blowing in my ears. It's been a while, a long while in fact. Over four years. I don't really have any excuses for being a bad blogger, if that's what you would call me. There has been a lot of changes in my life since I last sat down at my computer and shared anything with you. First thing, I have a new job. Its a career that I've always wanted to do but never really tried to do it. I am a flight attendant for a major U.S. airline and I have been doing it for over three years now and I love it. It wasn't easy to get this job, there were so many challenges and changes to make. The training for this job was hard. I mean HARD. I think I was always afraid that I couldn't do it, that I wouldn't pass all the multiple interviews and the training, but I did. Of course my family and my husband had to get used to the crazy schedule that I now have, but they've been great. They al

We Can All Be A Greek Goddess

I have decided to share with you guys one of my families absolute favorite recipes. It's called Grecian Goddess Chicken. My mother used to make this back when my parents were first married and they lived on a military base. Her neighbor made it for her and my mother instantly asked/begged for the recipe. As early as I can remember I loved it, so of course I needed a copy too. It's a great, super easy to make dish too…..for me that means that you just dump all ingredients in together, cook everything and it comes out perfect every time! I honestly have to tell you that I barely even measure anything anymore, I just kinda wing it :) You can tell from my copy of the recipe that it's popular….. isn't it always the "dirty pages" in our cookbooks that have the best stuff?! :) I'm not sure if you can read it so I will re-write everything for you: Boneless, skinless chicken breasts- potatoes, cut in quarters- 1 1/2 cups hot water- 1/2 cup of butter (1 stick)-

Something To Think About

Image
This morning I was wasting time, lingering around Pinterest. I was pinning all kinds of things that inspire me, recipes that I want to make and other various things. I'll be the first to admit it-- I was avoiding my housework. You see today was a rare day off for me. Don't get me wrong, I have a ton of stuff that I should be doing but you know what…I decided to just blow them all off. I think I deserve a day off every once in a while. I don't think there's anything wrong with that either. I know that I'm not a super woman and there's many days that between working full time, keeping the house somewhat presentable and wrangling four kids,that I am just struggling to keep my head above water. So today I took a day for myself. I'm lounging around, eating potato chips for breakfast and I'm loving it!!! Now some of you may be shaking your head at me but I don't care. Don't knock it until you try it……you just may enjoy it :) I haven't completely be
