Possible New Blog!

Happy Thursday Everyone! We are officially on the downhill to the weekend... or the up hill to Monday, whichever way you want to look at it.

I am seriously considering starting a new blog to talk about all my little projects I have been working on... I have been in this crafty mood lately and have created some fun things that would be fun to share, but I have some road blocks! It does not help that I am the worst at taking photos! Not that I cannot do it, just that I do not do it! For example, I have made 5 or 6 skirts, that I think were so cute, and have not taken a single photo of any of them!

So my first road block is the issue with my poor photo taking memory, the second and probably the biggest road block is the fact that I don't know what to call this said blog! I have thought of a couple names, but want your help...

The names I have come up with are as follows...

My Seventh Heaven - I am kind of embarrassed to say this, but I absolutely LOVE the show 7th Heaven. I might have almost all the seasons on DVD... Maybe... AND you could say I am in heaven when I craft, I mean I REALLY enjoy it! So it works all around!

Ash Has - This one I do not really like... I thought of this because I am Ashlee hence Ash, and I made everything you will see... not that all the ideas were 100% mine, but I did what I will show, and of course link to who I stole the idea from.

So any ideas? I would love to hear your thoughts!

And what post would be complete without a couple ADORABLE pics!!

Last EVER Work Christmas Party

Last night the hubby and I went to my last EVER work Christmas party. It was bittersweet!!

The drive there was an event itself!! We dropped the chicks off with the Hansen clan and took off! We decided to take frontage road to bypass rush hour traffic. As we were flying past everyone I was thinking... "haha, suckers!". That was my first bad! We were cruising along about 3 miles from the last on ramp and the road closes! We had to turn around and drive all the way back. (now who is the sucker! bummer!). On the way back some guy gets behind us and starts following way too close!! The hubbies road rage began flaring, the guy flew around us and slammed on his breaks! We had to swerve to not hit him! Now that got hubbies blood boiling! After we almost got in 2 accidents because of this guy he finally turned, Thank goodness! Now we were Christmas party bound!!

When we got there we first ate dinner, I am not sure who catered it but it was DEL-ISH!! They had some of the best pulled chicken type stuff, and steak! For sides we had a YUMMY green salad, rice, a roll and veggies... mmm! For a 'free for me' meal it was FANTASTIC!! My mouth is watering thinking about it!!

For the activity they had Common Cents Casino Parties come! I have always wanted to learn how to play Craps, so as soon as I finished eating, I hurried to the only Craps table there! The dealers (is that what they are called on the Craps table?) were SO nice. They taught me and the hubby how to play! Hubby was up to almost $10 grand! But with only 15 minuets left to play he bet it all on one roll and lost it!! Thankfully we were only playing for raffle tickets! I am not sure how much I ended up with, but I got a bunch of tickets!

When we finished playing we had a raffle. I put some tickets in a few prizes, not expecting to win anything! I had never won anything at a raffle in my life, so I was just putting tickets where ever! GUESS WHAT!?!? I won! I only got a $25 AMEX gift card and a bag of Reeses minis, but hey, at least I got something! I am not complaining about FREE money!!

The drive home was MUCH less eventful, but was good! I don't think I could have handled much more, I was tired and ready to go home and go to bed!

I didn't think about taking any pics there. I am fairly new to this blogging thing so I was not thinking about posting photos at that time! Sorry, just close your eyes and image it!

It was a blast, and the hubby even enjoyed himself, which does not happen often! So good job Benita for planning such a fun, and delicious night!! I will miss you Logoworks!!

Burn the Gallows

I am not sure if any of you are into heavy metal music, I am not really, but the hubbies friend (Lars Kocherhans - he is on the very far right, with the big beard!) is in an up and coming band called "Burn The Gallows". They have recently signed a contract and will be touring. Congrats guys!!

They had a show last night at In The Venue, so we left the little chicks with Abba and Papa and went with the Hansen clan to support him. They did great, this kind of music still is not my cup of tea, but it was fun to watch him.

(If you are a baby in the cold, like me, this is not the place to go in the winter, although it is inside they left the doors open so the cold air could get in. My poor toes were about to fall off they were so cold! I guess I should have joined the mosh pit, and I might not have been so cold!)

If you are into this kind of music you should check them out!!

My Homemade Shirt-Dresses!!

I found this blog that a friend recommended and I love it!! It is This woman is so creative, she makes all sorts of things and gives full instructions on most. Oh, and did I mention its all for free!!

I found a tutorial on her site for a dress that you make out of a mans dress shirt! They were adorable so I had to give it a try! I went home that evening and made KayLee this dress!

It turned out well and was a lot easier then I thought so I made one for Kacie too! The picture of Kacie didn't turn out that well, but you get the idea!!

Not only are they adorable, if I say so myself, but they have sentimental value, since they are Dads shirt !!

You all really need to check out this blog!! So inspirational, haha!!

First Cherries of the Year! FINALLY!!!

So I was on my way home from work yesterday and my mom calls me... "I was just looking at the Harmon's ad and they have CHERRIES!" I went speechless! "Are you serious?" I said "Yes" she replied "New Crop Cherries, $3.97 a pound" My heart almost stopped beating, I was SO excited! "Yeah" I exclaimed! And then I remembered I had given Jake my debit card to hold and never got it back... AND I was all out of cash!

As soon as I hung up with her I immediately text Jake and said "Harmon's has CHERRIES on sale. It is EXTREMELY critical that you hurry home so we can go get some! I MUST have them TONIGHT!"

After what felt like an eternity my husband finally got home! We rushed to Harmon's and got my

When I took my first bite, I think I had died and went to heaven! MMMM.... so delicious!

I tried really hard not to eat too many, so I would not get sick. But they were delightful!

I am so glad my mom found them in that ad!

I have been craving cherries like CRAZY for the last little while. Real, fresh, red, juicy, delicious cherries.... of course I cannot have them because they are not in season... I have looked everywhere for them... even online. I am willing to spend $10 a pound for them, but that is still not working...

SO.... for Mother's Day my wonderful husband bought me a cherry TREE! A whole tree! there are no cherries on it so I still have to wait, and I will probably not even get any this season, but still I now have my very own miniature cherry tree! It is one that you can put in a little planter pot and keep it inside in the cold times, and outside in the warm times!

We planted the tree yesterday and put it by our window! Here is the tree! Its so cute!

You see the little red tag on the bottom? It says RED DELICIOUS CHERRIES! Exactly what I want! I cannot wait until the cherries start blooming. In the meantime if anyone knows where I can get RED DELICIOUS CHERRIES, let me know... you will be my friend for life!
