My Etsies

Hey all you faithful viewers. Just wanted to take a post to point out my mini Etsies on the right side bar of our blog. Baby Bug Nugglet is my newest Etsy. As you may be able to tell from the name, it specializes in Baby Items.

Some may question how I came up with this I'll just take a moment to explain. I actually had to have it explained to me recently too. Bug Nugglet was my grannie's nick name for me growing up. I asked her last week how she came up with that name. She said that when I was little I LOVED chicken nuggets, only I couldn't pronounce nuggets so they were "chicken nugglets." Cute huh? So that's how she came up with nugglet. As for the "bug," her nickname for my sister was "Jennie Bug" so it's only fitting that she call Jennie's mini me "Bug" Nugglet. I think I may have overused the quotes, but you get the point.

Right now as you can see I only have sets of burp cloths listed, but I do plan on listing other baby related items such as fashionable wipe cases, nursing covers, diaper bags, etc. SO if you are planning on becoming pregnant or know of people who are pregnant or will be pregnant that you would like to get a gift for, please keep Baby Bug Nugglet in mind.

Also, I have my original etsy Meagan's Creations, which features jewelry items: earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and right now there's also a bookmark. In the future, there is a chance that I may add other items such as laptop sleeves, tote bags, etc. (You can go to Jennie's blog to see a laptop sleeve that I recently made for her.)

Lastly, if you would like to request an item, I can do custom orders. You can tell me exactly what it is you are wanting, what color, and how much you are wanting to spend.

Thanks for reading my sales pitch. Have a good weekend!

For some reason not all of my Girl's Trip pictures downloaded from my camera. Luckily I realized it before I deleted them from my memory card. SO here are a few more pictures from that:

This is the original Iwo Jima in Harlingen, TX. Aparaently one of the men who raised the flag was from Harlingen.
Not too long ago, Josh and I bought new energy efficient windows for our home. Here are the before pictures:

Don't you love those screens?!?! Ummm, maybe not so much. Here are the new ones:
SO beautiful!
I went to a flea market at the State Fair with my friend Karlie two weeks ago and found this dresser. Isn't it so stinkin cute!! I love it. I didn't buy it right away but snagged it literally as we headed home for the day.
And as you can see from the picture below, my living room is the only room in our house that had open space. I think it fits nicely in the space though.
Shortly after being re-energized by my refurbished finding at the flea market, I finally finished up my window that I've had sitting in the garage for several months. I preped it and painted it antique white with chocolate brown crackles.
This is what it looked like after I finished all of the painting.
Here is a close up of the crackled detail. I still have a few things that I need to do to it. If you look closely at the picture below you will see that I broke one of the glass panes. My sister cut me a new piece of glass to size this past weekend so now I just need to redo the caulking so that the glass doesn't fall out. I plan on having Josh cut me some etched vinyl frames so that the glass will looked frosted and I need to decide what pictures I want to place behind the frosted frames. My sister also suggested that I incorporate some vinyl wall art, so I'm still throwing that idea around. I'll be sure to take a final picture after I get everything done and hang it on the wall.
Finally, I wish I could claim the flowers below as my own, but I can't. These are pictures of Mom's flowerbeds in Mission, TX. She always does a wonderful job corrdinating and upkeeping her gardening.

Have a good week!

Fun at the Lake

On Saturday, Josh and I went with our friends Scott, Ginger, and Amelia to Lake Arcdia which is just a few miles down the road. Here are some pictures that I enjoyed taking with my new lens that Josh got me for Christmas!Getting ready for take off.Nice close up shot. Looks professional huh? j/kCatching some air....just a little bit This is Scott riding the wave
I love this picture because of the water in the bottom of the frame. I think it looks really cool : ) Scott doesn't look bad either....great form.
This is Miss Amelia riding a few feet behind the boat at a steller 5 mph. She had a great time in the water.Here's some more pictures of Josh. He had a wild ride on the intertube.
I also rode the intertube, but I only had my fancy camera so you'll just have to imagine how good I look holding on for dear life with my eyes squinted to keep some of the water out of my eyes and my mouth closed so that I don't get a mouth full of fish pee water if I happen to fly off. :) It was a great time!
I hope you get the opportunity to enjoy the lake too sometime this summer.
