About Me

My photo
After being told I would never be able to have children, I am now a stay-at-home Mommy to Maddie who happens to have Down Syndrome. I've been married 16 years to my best friend, having the time of my life. Thanks for stopping by and sharing in our little journey through life.

A Few of my Favorite Things

So, Oprah just did her favorite things show.  I started thinking about my favorite things.  Here are a few:

Canon Rebel XSi
I love, love, love my camera!  Best purchase ever.

Ugg boots
Finally! It's cold enough I can wear them again.

Red Wine (particularly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon)  and I really like the Mad Housewife label (mostly for the name, because you know I have mad housewife skills : ) 

My Seven jeans

Sewing Projects, especially ones for Maddie Rayne

Garage Sale Finds (woot, woot!)
 I know I could go on and on, but those are all the pictures I have.
It's Thanksgiving week and it would be weird to post a blog of favorites and not mention how grateful I am for the inordinate blessings in my life.  Blessings like my husband, my baby girl, my family, my friends, my house, my backyard, my morning coffee (hee hee - is it bad that it rates up there with family and friends?) 
So, Happy Thanksgiving!  Thanks for reading!  Enjoy turkey, stuffing, and all of your favorite things this week!

    Doug, I'm so excited to meet Shana (and have some cherry strudel)! : )
