On the Road AGAIN

Wow say it ain't so??? Yes we are back on the road. Left at 10:10am and currently eating at McDonald's (I hate fast food - but then goodness they do have salad because that is what I am eating). Time to slim down because well "THAT WHAT I AM ABOUT" - SO DON'T RAIN ON MY PARADE...

It's been a weird winter for us but we are thankfully it's over - we went from work to work with no time off for us and that's what we are doing now - is taking time for us. 16 hour days and you know what "IT PUT FOOD ON OUR TABLE, MADE OUR DREAMS COME TRUE AND SAVING IN OUR SAVING ACCOUNT - so don't rain on our PARADE... Cranky I sound??? YEP and NOPE....

We are having a great day today... Jorge and I have been chatting about everything and anything and just loving it.... The route we took made no sense but that's what we wanted. ADVENTURE without a PLAN or PATH....

I would like to give a shout out to my boss for giving me a bonus to allow us this fun freedom and for believing in me and for just everything she's done for us. We can't thank you enough for all you've done for us. CRASH I did this winter - medical, emotional and entrapment in my own hours. Gosh, I have the best husband in the world who says to me - "YOU DID IT"....

So Yakima is strange little but not so little town - we will venture around to sneak peak and visit some and then it's back on the road.

I know a lot of you are coming over from Facebook to read this and I can't thank you enough for being our friends and all the words of encouragement you've given to us - and my new customers who are life long friends now - gosh I love you (Rhonda & Ryan hint hint)....

So many blessings this month - Holly our sweet beautiful friend is having a boy, Ryan is OK (thank goodness), Heather new business, my brother and his grant for his farm, and the list grows and grows, and we are so happy to be a part of it all... Life is Good no matter how many hours you work - we are just lucky that we like our job(s)...

Ok, updates later... Keep well our dear friends....

Winter Blues

Say it ain't so??? Yes, its us... For real??? Right now I am battling the winter blues... Get me the heck out of here already!! I am so ready for summer fun.

So where have we been hiding ourselves? Well, some would say our rig. And they would be right - but busting our butts working. Yep some say or would like to think we hide for fun - it ain't so but oh well, let them think the way they want. I have a goal and so does my husband and it just so happens to be the same goal. And by golly we did it... Our business and I repeat "OUR BUSINESS" has grown "BIG TIME" and we can now move to plan B of our adventure. A bigger rig. That brings us back to my winter blues... All I see is cardboard boxes piled high and bins full of inventory and supplies in almost every corner of our rig, taunting me to madness. Just a couple more weeks, my husband says, just a couple more weeks. And then for a moment I feel joy....

Mr Crafty (our 24ft motorhome) is being given to a very sweet young man, who is planning on his own new adventures with the RV. And OMG he's keeping the name. We are so excited to see what becomes of Mr Crafty and the new upgrades and all the adventure our Darien will have with Mr Crafty. I think he is going to do wonders with Mr Crafty... Also to boot we will spend this summer working for the same company and we'll get to learn more about him (jazzed about that big time - it will be like having a little brother again - ummmmm maybe he'll let me tap him in the head to really feel like family lol).

Well, we had our last fun adventures (not that we had many this winter, because we had a goal and well we did everything in our power to follow through) today. And figures it rained today and so it had to be about fun inside. And so we went to the Maryhill Museum. WOW,WOW,WOW,WOW,WOW,WOW.WOW,WOW we loved it. But lets take a step back a bit. We side tracked to a cemetery and eeeeeeeeeek it was weird and creepy... Look at pics and guess...

They had a small section of graves and then way over in the corner it looked like a pet cemetery so we headed over there and it was full of weird stuff just everywhere on top of graves, and they were mounted piles of dirt. I'd say 90% were children graves. Check out the picture by clicking on them and it will go bigger - it's just creepy... Not sure of the history of the stuff everywhere or what....

And then we headed to the museum and it was awesome. Clean, huge and friendly. And we were interviewed by a news reporter from WA. It was so weird.... So we may end up in the paper - she even wrote our etsy info down and was in awwwwww of our life.... Finally a fan - I kept saying...

http://www.maryhillmuseum.org/ the web site really is nothing compared to the visit in person. It was $9.00 a person and it's 3-4 floors... We stayed for about 3 hours and still didn't read everything... It was a lot of fun... We love the theater room the best... It's a must visit!!

Then we had dinner with friends Travis and Carol (Carol noticed I was having some issues with winter blues and did wonders pulling me out of my funk - God love her for it). LOL it was awesome to hang out and just be silly and chat about anything and everything. We can't thank them enough - Happy Birthday to the both of them as well!! And there you have the end our winter. In just 2 weeks and a couple of days we head out for some much need vacation time BUT until then it's back to work.. WORK WORK WORK so we can have a fun filled summer. So how are your winter blues??

Our New Year Present Exchange

New Years Present Exchange

I wanted this year to be special for Jorge. He so amazes me as a person, a best friend, a husband and one heck of a worker. This year we went for our dream and we've reached it and now we can enjoy it. Working for ourselves was such an important goal for us.

With the New Year our goal is to have us both working side by side and that means now I get to sew right along with my husband. It's something we love and it's something we can count on. We can go anywhere we want and do the things that make us happy and the key word here is FREEDOM.

The pictures below are of Jorge (I got a beautiful crochet hook holder along with a very very very cool Joann's card that I get to use for myself - not the business) taken last night at 12:10 am... it's our thing to do the present exchange on New Years instead of Christmas - it may be weird to some and that's ok but for us it's special!!
These are all for Jorge -
however the sewing machine didn't get here in time

He was in so much shock - can you tell?

Yippee his Cabela's wish item came true - here we come IDAHO!!
