I was born and raised here in Oregon. I hate the rain but I love the beauty that spring and fall bring each year. I am incredibly blessed to be a wife to an amazing man and a stay at home mom to four beautiful, energetic children! I have been creative and crafty all of my life. With the birth of Revamped & Fabulous, the Lord has given me an outlet for my creativity and an income for my family!
I LOVE a good bargain! I enjoy finding creative ways to save money. I started revamping furniture and DIY decor for my own home as a frugal alternative to buying "new". People started saying "Hey, I love that, can you do that for me?!" And that's how Revamped & Fabulous was born! It gives me such happiness and satisfaction to have people put my pieces in their homes!
Welcome to my blog! It is a continuing work in progress. I'm a stay at home mom of three children...Well four if you count my husband (he, he). Blogging has become an outlet for me and lets face it, we all need one! Especially stay at home parents. We are in a class all our own. I've found that writing is cheaper than therapy and more sane than checking my self into a mental hospital, which has crossed my mind a few times. I invite you to become a follower and share your stories and comments or things you would like to hear more about. This is about as close to adult interaction I get these days!
It's official. In the great words of the hilarious movie "13 going on 30", I am 30 and flirty and thriving!!!
I have to admit, the build up to this day has been a bit of a depressor. I mean, where did the time go?? Am I seriously 30 years old?? My beloved grandmother just laughed at me and said " Honey, when you get to my age, you are ecstatic for another birthday because It means your not dead yet!" That kind of put things in prospective for me. Age is just a number right? Now that the day is actually here I feel great! My kids woke me up with a Happy Birthday serenade and surprised me with a present they picked out all on their own! My hubby had a hot cup of tea and a cake doughnut ready for my consumption. As if the day couldn't get any better, I'm spending a girls day out with my dear girlfriend! I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful life. If this is what turning 30 feels like than bring on the b-days! It's all down hill from here right? :)
My beautiful husband threw a surprise birthday party for me! Look at my cake!!
