It is about 5 1/2 hours drive. I finally got my new slipcovered furniture I have been wanting for so long..
Our budget could not afford a new a sofa from the PB or RA.. so I found a way to get what I wanted..
For the cost of one sofa from big name.. I was able to get one slipcovered sofa, two slipcovered chairs, and a chaise lounge.. We would have had it delivered but that would have cost as much as the sofa just for the sofa..since it had to come from warehouse in California.. My hubby opted to drive 5 1/2 hours to pick up ourselves... Never having shopped in Ikea.. made for an unexpected experience..The Ikea store had lots of goodies that I was dying to look at as we were passing them by walking to warehouse.. but we were on a mission! We had to get in, get out!.. ( My hubby talking ).. I did get my furniture.. love it! but need to go back someday to browse.. probably would take 1/2 a day or more.. I like to look at everything..

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day so far...
Just got off the phone with my youngest daughter madeline..I
love you Maddie!!!!! I hope you have a great afternoon, and remember that I love you!!!!
My daughter Madeline is one of those girls who if she puts her mind to it she can accomplish anything..( all of my children are like that).. She is a young homemaker and mother,, I envy her in some ways, but I remember how challenging it was back in the day... when all my children were little.. and I was alot younger.. I wish I knew a few of the things back then that I know now..
She is a musician, she plays the Viola.. That is what she was trained in.. but has self taught herself piano..she can play the harp, mandoline, guitar, I know I am forgetting something..
She also is an artist... she can draw and paint.. she is so talented!!!
Right now she has a little baby, he is 5 months old.. She has her hands full! He is precious and beautiful and such a blessing to our whole family!! Maddie is such a good wife and mother. She has so much more patience than I had when I was raising her..
I guess the reason I am singing praises of her, Is that I am constantly amazed at how graceful, spiritual, beautiful, creative, talented she is!! I believe there isn't anything she can't do!!!!!!! All she has to do, is believe she can, or want too!!
She lives in Idaho right now and that is very far away from us!! I miss them all very much!! Maybe we can see each other soon!!
I am sending her my love, hugs and kisses!!!! My arms are around you and your are always in my thoughts.. but most importantly, my HEART!!!!! As are all of my children!!
Aren't they beautiful? I love my girls!! They are my best friends!!!
My daughter Lauren is the oldest. She lives about 2 1/2 hours drive from us and she is also married and has 2 step children.. She is equally as talented and beautiful as you can see from the picture,, she is the one holding baby Jed.. her nephew. I get to see her next weekend.. cant wait!!!
Well I hope everyone has a beautiful weekend !!

American Idol comes on tonight again!!! WOOO HOOOooo!!! lol.. I get happy about the littlest things, sorry..
I don't have any pictures to post today..I am working on a few projects.. so maybe by the end of the week I will have something to show you!
We are in arkansas and we have been seeing the firsts peeks of springtime.. I am loving the weather.. 60's..
For the last two days I have worn short sleeves and sandals.. It has been so nice, and my toes haven't even gotten cold!
I came home from work and my husband had planted our rasberry, blueberry, and blackberry bushes..
I can't wait til they start producing.. I hope they will this year, but I am not sure if they do the first year planted.. they are 2 year old plants.. We will see.. I want to make jams and all sorts of goodies!! I recently learned how to make jams in the last few years and it is one of my favorite things to do now.. So easy!
But yet so rewarding!!!
Well, I guess I will go for now.. I want to check out what everybody else is up to on their blogs!!

A cute little snack set that I am going to send to my daughter Maddie, it matches her dishes.
I got 12 bowls in all for $10.00
This past saturday, my hubby and I spent the day together. We started the day at the gym and then got cleaned up and went to Little Rock for lunch.. SUSHI!!! Yummy!!
We then got out our new G.P.S. gadget that my husband loves to play with, and we were off and running.. put a few addresses in.. (some were good and some not!! ) We thought we would try a few markets that we haven't been to. We came home with some goodies!!!
