Tagged...the name game

I have been tagged by a wonderful artist Elaine. Here are the rules: You have to post these rules before you give the facts. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your own middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog. Ok...my middle name is...dont laugh, Lee.



L - love life!




E- energetic




E - easy going~

A Jumble of Everything.....

Hello Everyone,

I haven't posted in awhile....time flies. I feel the summer has flown by and we went on a vacation last week, then school started today....OH MY!! I have two that are in school and today was hard for me. I cant believe the years are flying by and I get to be a participant in the grace of God. I have always been in wonderment of my kids, but I think I am more so as they grow and their personalities are forming. Each stage is a new journey and I am grateful everyday~
So I will carry on.....our vacation was a great getaway. We went up north and spent a few days at our friends summer home. It was great. We boated, fished and cooked out every meal....which is fun because my hunny thinks he is a chef and goes all out. So I like vacation, because I get to be on vacation from cooking. Even though I love to cook, it's nice to have a break once in awhile :0 plus he is a great cook!! When we were noodling around we came across a roadhouse we had to try...the name said it all! Fat Jack's Roadhouse! So my husband had a break from cooking and we had some local food...delicious~plus the name :O) love it!!


The kids loved fishing and boating. Even though it was a bit overcast we made the best of it~ We only caught three fish.....I should say the girl's only caught three fish. We had a lot of fun makin' smores, swimming and just hanging out. We even taught the kids a game called "spoons" so it was a grand time....a much need relaxing getaway :)







Boating was a fun....our youngest had a tough time with the life jacket, she was more like the abominable snowman...it was quit funny~ Our oldest two had blast tubing. The lake was like glass and we had such fun watching them giggle and jump wakes! Our youngest is waving at her older siblings...maye next year will tug her around in the bay.

Of course I had to noodle around the town and find treasures...quaint little shops and eye candy for me~

We also brought one of four legged children, our puppy Finnley. He actually turned one while we were on vacation. Finn had a wild weekend.....he went on the boat for the first time, fished with the kiddos and even caught some rays on a float in the pool~ he had a great birthday!

Lastly...before I bore you too much I will add a little creation I just did as a custom order for two little girls room. I added this picture...because "Nice Matters" and I wanted to thank you for voting for me...I was very touched. The love bugs were fun....I did a pink and lime green one....so I am thanking you for all the love...a love bug bite :)


I hope all enjoy the beginning of the school year and have wonderful labor day.....I will be posting soon. I did a swap with two amazing artist and cant wait to share my treasures that I received...plus I am working on a new project...entirely different then what I am doing, but I am loving it~take care and many blessings!!
