Useless Information

President Lincoln’s oldest son was on the scene of three presidential assassinations. His father in 1865, Garfield in 1881, and McKinley in 1901.

My Newest Addiction.....

GemsTV - Has anyone else discovered this yet?

This is a TV channel on DirectTV and they also have a website.
They sell BEAUTIFUL jewelry at rock bottom prices.
This is not an advertisement, just a personal endorsement.
They have SOOO many beautiful gems from bracelets to rings, to earrings.

My favorite is the online "Web Games"....every 1 minute there is a display of jewelry and the prices drop, drop, drop....SO FUN.....
Check it out HERE

Be careful though, the prices are great and shipping is only like five bucks...


Ok...So my Blog is BORING......

You know it, I know it...we ALL know it.
I probably have absolutely no readers due to the fact that I never WRIGHT anything

I think if anyone comes it is for the freebies, and even then, I may only get a comment or two of thanks.
Don't get me wrong, I am grateful to ANY visitors I can get....I must be

I have decided to try to spice up the blog a bit. I will post interesting finds, fun facts, anything of interest to me, Family stories, recipes I like, and of course, FREEBIES and my Digi layouts.....

I am a Happily Married, Full-Time working Mother of an almost THREE year old little Maniac whom I love dearly and he is my LIFE. So if I come across any fun finds for children I will post those too.

Today I have come across these FUN FUN shoes that your children can personalize.

They are called GRAFEETIE'S......(click Here to go to site)

You can write on them, and erase, and do it again and again. HOW CLEVER for your aspiring artists out there. This really takes me back to when we used to mark up our Chuck Taylor's.

Journal read as.....

I can remember the day she passed, like it was yesterday. She was near the end and she grabbed my hand, and nudged my sister Toni and with the softest smile said "Hey they are here now, I love you and will see you soon" and then she was gone. We knew she seen the angels to take her to home. I was 16 and a senior in high school, and my whole world came crashing down. I hated the god's but then we all do when we grieve. She was way to young and to good of a person to just take her and before you took her to make her suffer in such pain for so long. It took me so long to grip she was never coming back. But now two years later I am strong and going on. Miss you Mom forever in my heart.
