Hi my name is Tess…and I am addicted to Pinterest


I along with a million plus other people are addicted to Pinterest. I love it. You can go on Pinterest search for whatever your little heart desires and you will most likely get a result. Take a look around your house. Do you have toys, gift wrap, tubberware all over??? You know you do. Search on Pinterest organization. You will find ideas for organization that you didn’t even know you could organize. You will be able to turn any space in your home into an organizational maze. Do you teach? BINGO….search what you are teaching and come back with a ton of ideas for charts, lessons, crafts, etc. Do you love to cook? You will have hundreds of pins you would like to try. Do you love to bake? You will have hundreds of pins you would love to try. Now do you have a bunch of pallets hanging around the house? You will find a ton of uses for pallets. I could go on all day what you can find.

NOW that you have your countless pins what do you do? When do you have to the time to tackle your ambitions? Do you have the finances to tackle your ambitions? Do you have the drive to tackle you ambitions? I have been successful when it comes to food. I have been able to accomplish a lot of the dinners and desserts I found. The biggest hit being fudge. I have done a few crafts and organizational things, but I want to do more.

Future…I am going to try hard to accomplish more of the things I pin. I have found a lot of things that I love that can be bought but I love making things. The kiddy art and craft side of me comes out. I will continue pinning and crafting….If you have found pins that you love and have accomplished please post. I would love to see them!! I will try to post more of mine!

New Year’s Eve…Bring on 2013


Yes…December 31, 2012 is upon us. That would be my daughter on her New Year’s Eve hat. This past year as many of you know has been crazy with a capital C…

Last year at this time Sean and I were expecting our second daughter on April 16th. What we were not expecting is the loss of our precious Brayleigh. On March 28th it will be one year since we said hello to our baby that was born an angel. It is amazing what has happened in this past year. Between our loss of Brayleigh and the passing of both my Grandmother and Sean’s Nana. But with all the lows that were thrown at us on September 1st, Sean and I got married. It was a long time coming but we did it. We were suppose to get married in October but his brother was leaving for Air Force basic on September 11th. We pushed our wedding up to make sure he could be there to share in our day. It was a great day! Along with our wedding two of our friends got married in November.




As I sit here watching the movie New Year’s Eve on New Year’s Eve I look back and remember last year but most importantly I’m looking forward to a year that I know will be our year. I start my new job on Jan 2nd. Which I am both excited and nervous about. Also like many people do on December 31st every year I will also be making resolutions for 2013. My resolutions are more like hopes and dreams for 2013. I hope for a healthy year for my family and friends. A year full of joy not sorrow. To not sweat the small stuff. There are so may things that happen that really don’t mean anything of significance.

Lastly I want to give out a few thank yous. Most importantly to my wonderful and caring husband. I may some times (well most of the time) be a little hard or a lot hard to deal with. I am pretty stubborn but you help me out in so many ways. I know that without you in my life this past year it would have been extremely difficult to pull through. A thank you for my beautiful loving daughter. Everyday she greets me with a smile and a hug. Without her in our lives I am not sure where we would be. She brings so much joy and laughter to us everyday! A thank you for our family. Our family is always a phone call away and they are all so amazing. Without their love and support together we all pulled through a few dark spots this year. Finally to our close friends. You were there to help pull us up when we were low and you were there to help us celebrate a high of getting married. You know exactly who you are and you know that we like you are a phone call away to help or celebrate. I also want to give a little shout out to my cousin and his girlfriend. I just found they got engaged today. I wish them many years of happiness. As you watch the ball drop in NYC tonight and kiss your loved ones. I wish you all a year of happiness and dreams come true.

God Bless!
