our Happenins has definitely been a good while since I have updated on the happenins!! First off, we just moved into our new home a little over a month ago and absolutely love it! The reason being for moving out of our rental was because it was infested with SCORPIONS...I was finding at least two or three a week inside the house. Needless to say, every night I was having anxiety attacks worrying that my boys who love to run through our house bare foot, was going to end up in the emergency room because of stepping on one. The breaking point was when I went into my closet one afternoon to put my shoes on and a scorpion fell out, landed on my foot, and then scurried off. I have never screamed so loud and so long in my entire life, in fact now that I think about it, I had a sore throat for a good two days afterwards. Anyways, that was when I told my husband we were getting out of this arachnophobia nightmare ASAP. Luckily, we were able to get out of our lease early and found a perfect little house, bug free, and am finally enjoying feeling at ease during the night:)

Who would ever have thought that by living in Vegas it would bring out the crafty side in me, I was never the one to be sewing, painting, or heaven forbid using a hot glue gun but now, that's all I find myself doing. My new obsessions for the moment are creating vinyl lettering's for my home which I have all over the place (thanks to the fact that my mom has the most awesome vinyl letting machine) and my sis in law Melinda and I have just started getting into the craze of making those cute little headbands with the big flowers for little girls and babies..don't ask me why I'm making them since I only have boys but they are so fun to make and seriously I have been to Michael's and Joan's Fabric so many times that half the employees know me by name...hehehe...I love it! I have come to the conclusion though, that since it is so much harder(if that is even a word) to meet WHOLESOME people out here I have found myself at home much more than usual, and with all that spare time it has brought out some hidden talents that I never knew I had:)

Lastly but not least, I'm also very excited that my Dougi finally has weekends off now! Since living in Vegas he has worked every Saturday and sometimes Sunday to keep up with the demand of building casinos out here. Any who, his schedule has changed for the time being and we can finally have our Daddy home more often!! YEAH!!
