New Goodies Coming Soon and A Few Changes

New changes coming soon to my blog site and new designs as well. 
Please visit again soon!
Thanks to everyone for your continued kind comments and support.

 I also want to give a warm felt Thank You to Nellie at McCarthy Designs for awarding me with my first blogger award. Thank you so much Nellie for this honor!
Check out Nellie's blog  McCarthy Designs.
You'll love it! 

 So as a recipient of this lovely award, I must share 7 things about myself. This will be hard because I'm an extremely private person, but here goes.

1} I am a Licensed Vocational Nurse by trade, but I decided to be a stay-at-home mom for my boys.
2} My dream is to have my own antique shop someday. My life would be fulfilled if that ever came true!
3} My favorite T.V. show of all time is, {don't laugh} Murder She Wrote. I actually have the first four seasons on DVD.I know most of the episodes by heart!
4}  I love to write. I am actually working on several different drafts of a book I hope to someday publish. Or at least finish.
5} I was born in the South and I love anything fattening or fried. Can't help it, it comes from my roots!
6} I have two beautiful boys and I actually was never expected to be able to have children. My first one finally came along after my husband and I were married for 10 years.
7}I have two different colored eyes! Truly!! One is blue and the other is brown. I was born with it.

Okay, that's it. I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me.
Take care.

  4. Congratulations on your award. Good for you. I love Murder she wrote, and have to confess to even Diagnosis Murder with Dick Van Dyke. The two shows were kind of at the same time. I look forward to seeing your new changes.

  5. Hello Melinda! Congratulations on your pregnancies...what a wonderful surprise especially after being told you'd never have children! I love the fact that you have two different colored eyes...I've only known one other person with eyes like that and think it's beautiful. Lucky girl! Good luck with your antique store (future) and your book! Take care Maura

  6. Hi Melinda, I just popped over to say Hi and to thank you for stopping by my blog! I am so glad I did, I loved this post and it was great to learn so much about you on my first visit!! I love Murder She wrote too (not as much as the Waltons though!). Congrats on your award - I am already a huge fan of sweet Nellie and her gorgeous blog:) Wishing you a lovely week Melinda ~ Tina x

  7. Hi Melinda,
    congratulations on your award - I got one from Nellie too!
    It's really funny you like Murder She Wrote - I was off sick from work for a couple of days last week and watched Murder She Wrote and Diagnosis Murder - when I told everyone in work they just groaned! I enjoyed them though - nice clean old fashioned murders - never much blood or gore!
    I too was told I'd have trouble conceiving and ended up having none - just two beautiful babies who I adore!


I am always so happy to hear from all of you!!~ Thank you for taking the time to stop by for a visit, you always make my day sweeter with your kindness!!~
