Feeling a lil' festive...

Sooo i thought I would put up another Christmas tree, but a little different since it is still quite early. I gathered some branches at our land and wah-lah...

I noticed in this month's magizine of Pottery Barn and Ballard Designs there were lots of twig trees being used as decor. Good thing about this it was free!  The stand it is sitting on was a five dollar revamp too...here is it's before picture:)
it was also Paris themed at one time (pic below), and my neighbor was throwing out some lampshades and she asked it I wanted them. The little ole leopard shade made me redo the entire bathroom :) One gallon of paint was 30.00, everything else was just laying around :) Pretty cheap redo!

Howdy folks....

and welcome to the State Fair of Texas

 Funny story on the above picture.. brad blacks out on rides, but he decided he would try this one. After the harness went on he freaked out and had to get out. Chad and Amanda are trying to talk him into staying. The teenage girls to the left are laughing at him too. Poor guy! Sooo FUNNY! 

 I love this oicture of my mom and dad! When my mom and dad were dating he used to always win her animals at the fairs and carnivals, she had tons! Then when my brothers and I were younger, i can remember him winning us all huge stuffed animals. I always felt so cool walking around with it! What great memories!
 Try # 2 on the rides.. should have known with it called "vertigo" Brad blacking out, and Amanda getting sick..
 Helping her get up
 Maybe they will stick to the people watching and food next year :)
