An Engaging Announcement

The Sgt and I got engaged!



What can I say...the man has good taste! HA He also found me the perfect ring... a ring from the 1940's with a matching wedding band. Told you he was good...no new bling for this gal...I like mine with some history! Good job Sgt!

Swamp Girl

I've been feeling like a swamp girl lately. Perhaps it's because I've been soooooo busy with work and trying to keep up with my daily life too?? I just need a change! I'm BORED with myself! What's a girl to do I ask?? A new hair color? A new hair cut?? New clothes?? All of the above?? I've been thinking about a new hair color for awhile. It's been really light red for some time....it might just be time to try something new?? What do you do when you get stuck in a rut and get bored with yourself???

This is how I felt this morning but then again I also got rained on! Artwork by graphic novel artist: Christopher Bonnette. Check out more of the angry swamp Gill-Girls here: BlueShirtsBrown

Umm okay how creepy, cute is this?? I'm so being a swamp girl for halloween!!! You can make your own and be a swamp girl too...Swamp Girl Costume.

Gettin Dirty with the Sgt....


Hey!!! Get your minds outta the gutter you pervs....I mean, gettin dirty in the garden with Sgt!! One of the things the Sgt and I have in common is our like for gardening. This past weekend we spent some time working in the garden at Sgt's house. I dug up and transplanted some of my over grown day lilies from the front garden at DeluxeVille and I also bought some more plants at a greenhouse auction. Yes kiddos, I managed to find an auction that was selling off end of the season plants and saved tons of money. Nows the time to get great deals on perenials and other year round plants such as trees and shrubs...check your local greenhouses!

DeluxeVille = DirtVille
I'm sure the neighbors are once again wondering what the hell I'm up to?? Actually, their guess is as good as mine as I have no idea what I'm up to either but change is a good thing! See how this works...when you run outta room at your house, just take it over and drop it off at your fella's house! If he really loves ya, he won't mind. :)

Hydrangeas, Lilacs, Blue Beard, Clematis, Ornamental Grasses, Butter Fly Bushes, Japanese Maple Tree, and some other stuff I know I'm missing!


Then we totally got busy planting...making new flower beds and adding to old ones! There's just nothing this gal loves better then getting dirty in the garden with the Sgt. Especially if it involves him taking his shirt off!!! *wink wink*



Sgt has been working on his own garden project...building a flag stone patio...and then I show up and make him expand the flower beds! Poor guy. He secretly loved it... I could tell he was smiling!


Oh look, there's something else I just brought over to the Sgt's house because I had no room at mine! Boy oh boy, soon BachelorVille will be DeluxeVille II!

Poco Loco


This is what my cats do during the day while I'm off being crazy busy at work!

Work sucks and that's all I know right now people.

No auctions, adventures, or the Sgt lately...I sure do miss that man of mine. Damn my stupid stressful job and the 2 hour drive it takes to get to Sgt's house. Oh why, oh why did summer have to end!
