Noah has RSV (a type of bronchitis found in children) and he's real sick. :(
He's having difficulty breathing so he has to stay overnight at Children's Hospital in Dallas.
He'll be fine but we just want our little man home!
... Thanks so much to everyone ...

So we're getting into wedding plans! I'm home in Dallas for the next week so my fiance (who's still in Corpus) is driving down to check out a venue I've recently discovered. It's a place (looks like a house but has a huge room for weddings, etc) that was built in the 1940's. It sits on the top of a hill and overlooks White Rock Lake. I'd love to have a "vintage" wedding... simple and classic and I think this place is very fitting for it. Here's a picture of the house for you:
The house sits on top of a hill and overlooks the lake.
I'm being featured this Wednesday on Kristin's blog The Faithful Fashionista for a giveaway! You could win this "Dream Bird" necklace! See Kristin's blog for more details. :) (There's more than 1 way to enter!! Multiple entries = more chances to win!)

Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people will accuse you of ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you.
Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.
Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.
It never was between you and them anyway.
I found this on Kate's blog over at ...be happy anyway and it really opened my eyes. ESPECIALLY the very last one.

Forever 21 - $19.80
Hello to all! I'm at home (in my hometown... Crandall, Tx) for the next week and a half! I surprised my mother by just showing up today. I left Corpus Christi at 8am this morning and made it here around 3pm, which isn't bad timing at all! She was so shocked... She was upset because I convinced her that I wasn't coming home until next weekend and that I couldn't stay longer than that weekend. :) And tonight we had a "girls night" with my mother and 2 sisters (ages 7 and 5) and we went to see Hannah Montana - the movie. It was so good! Much better than expected...
I just wanted to make this little post about the bold floral print dresses I came across. I wouldn't usually say it's within my "style" but I've come to love it! (This dress here for example) Ok, so maybe "bold" floral isn't the word for my dress... but I'm taking baby steps here :) It's still pretty floral and that's what counts! Anyway, I found that Forever 21 carries a lot of these...
Smile! It's FRIDAY!!! :) &&& a 3-day weekend!!

The interview went good today! I won't know anything until next week... so we'll see. :)
This one's a lot like the "Dream" necklace (with the bird) but I added the little black bead off-center for a bit of uniqueness. Passion is in your heart, right? :)
These earrings are probably my most favorite item I've made so far... They are so simple and elegant. I think I'm gonna keep a pair for myself!
I'd like to give an AWARD!!!
To my 3 favorite bloggers at the moment:
Rachel - Rachel's Pink Thoughts
Lindsay - One Day at a Time
*I also want to give this award to ...lovemaegan for
"Most Addicting Blog"*

She included some summer essentials along with "Smarties" candy because she said I'm a smarty since I graduated college. (And she's right) lol

I have to say "Stay... Stayy... Stayyy" lol But he balances his toy on his nose. Soon we wanna start working on him balancing treats :)
My fiance and I decided to take advantage of the beautiful sunset this evening to take Dierks out for a walk and here's some photos he took:
Now last but certainly not least... I have to give a special "Hello" to my Aunt Kathy!
She let me know this weekend when she was in town for my graduation that she reads my blog every day!! :) And keeps up with my Etsy shop... http://www.bellacene.etsy.com/ . She has been one of my biggest supporters (along with my fiance) in my jewelry making "business." lol Love you Aunt Kathy!

Creating new jewelry.
Thursday, May 7, 2009
Well, I've got a Sensation and Perception final tomorrow at 11am and I've been studying since 10pm and it's 12:55am and I am TIRED. (In case you're wondering, this class is about how our body works physiologically in perception ... like sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch.) Well, I hate posting blogs without pictures (because I've found I prefer blogs with photos but maybe that's just the ADHD part of my brain) but I've got no photo to accompany this blog :( I really wanted to film my show tonight but we forgot the video camera! Ugh...
Well, wish me luck!
ps. I'll post a picture of the skirt I made BEFORE I turn it into a pair of shorts. lol Yeah, it's not the most flattering piece of clothing created. lol Oh well, it was great practice!
Oh, by the way... no new jewelry :( I've been busy.
