What do Jaime Pressly and I have in common?

Beauty? Talent? Fame?

Nope just this

Another thing we don't have in common ... Jaime escaped!!!

Jaime's book is the buzz around town. I hear names are changed, but anyone from Ktown will know the cast.

All the Pressly talk brought to my mind the day before my high school graduation when Jaime's grandma gave me a very scary haircut. I started that day with really long hair. Impulsively I took myself to the community college for a trim. Mrs. Pressly told me I needed the newest look. Lots of layers in lots of thick curly hair = disaster!!!! Two salons and two haircuts later I had the Mia Farrow look (scalped). I had to put a dart in my graduation cap to keep it on my now ....much smaller head.

Thanks for the memories Jaime.....Ktown loves you

Color me violet

Have you taken the rainbow quiz? I was surprised by my results. I do not like purple ,or I didn't think I did.
Your rainbow is shaded violet.


What is says about you: You are a creative person. You appreciate beauty and craftsmanship. You are patient and will keep trying to understand something until you've mastered it.

Lucky Me

My mama gave me this quilt a few weeks ago. She hand pieced the top and started quilting it in the early 1980's. It has been in a closet since then. If I finish the quilting it's mine. Hope I can get it done. I've never handquilted anything this huge.

My Baby Boy is 21
