Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesdays


I know, I know...I told you all about Pinterest in yesterday's post when I linked up to our own meme
 "In Your Neck of the Woods" at The RHOK
But today I just had to link up to a meme I found while Pinning. I am not going to bore you with any more finds this week. If you want an invite holla at me by leaving a comment- you know where to find me! You can also take a look at my boards right here!

Michelle at The Vintage Apple is AWESOME!
Her bio along makes me want to be her BBF-bloggy best friend and PBF-pinning best friend!

"I'm a reality TV watching, Texas livin', kid teaching, fiance lovin, family oriented kind of girl. I love sunny days, my car full of shopping bags, and sitting on my couch reading a page turner. It doesn't take much to make me happy and I am so loving this life! As my old pal Carrie Bradshaw would say, "As we drive along this road called life, occasionally a gal will find herself a little lost. And when that happens, I guess she has to let go of the coulda, shoulda, woulda, buckle up and just keep going.”

Michelle, if you happen to read this, you are what us RHOK-Real Housewives of Oklahoma coin a future Real Housewife of Texas!

Now I just had to share this one pin with you all. 
How many of you can relate?
(luckily, for my man, or maybe me- he gets to read most of my post before I hit the post button)

Happy Pinning! See you next Wednesday, can't wait to show you my finds next week!

The RHOK Stars ARE Hip to be Squared

I changed my FB picture and soon had had a few friends ask about The Cubed Project.
Today at The RHOK, Mrs. Priss features the RHOK Stars in all of our glamour in the "box"!
Then she tell our readers about the project and how they can get involved in it!
I have to admit, it was a lot of fun being a "model", but next time I will put on some darker lips!
Go to The RHOK and read all about it. If you sign up make sure you tell Geoffrey that we sent you!

Look at me- I am a RHOK Star!
All glammed in leather & ripped jeans w/ my black toenail polish!!

Today's Post... at where else but

I think I will put some of it on The 4-Crow's as well, after all it's my post and my first official book review!

Last August we welcomed my friend Michelle as The RHOK's first guest post writer. If you don't remember this post, Too Far South, then you absolutely must read it again or go read it for the first time!

And now, with extreme happiness for my friend, I bring to you her first book, a pirate novella,  Revenge of the Siren Song, published on November 20, 2010.

Oh, you thought I was going to put the entire post on this blog. Ha Ha. Guess you will have to head on over and read what Mrs. Hart had to say! And don't forget to follow the links and congratulate Michelle!

In My Neck of The Woods- My Fit


See this? 

Here, let me get in a little closer...


That is my $120 Chi Flat Iron.
and YES is is broken.
I did it while throwing a MOMMY fit. Have you ever done that before? You know when you tell the kid three simple instructions.

 Get the swimbag. Put your swimsuit in it. Then grab the two swimsuits on my bed.

Believe me next time I will throw won't throw the hairbrush on the tile floor and do it myself because the life of my Hot Pink Leopard Chi was not worth a Mommy tantrum and NO I did not feel better and still want to throw up over my actions. I have begged for forgiveness, understand that I am human, and praise God I am saved by the blood of Jesus Christ and will now have to work an extra 14 hours somewhere to have straight hair again! 
Thank you Hot Pink Leopard Chi-you were the best 4 years of my hair's life! 

Now before you commit me, head on over to The RHOK and let us know what is going on 
In Your Neck of the Woods!

*Disclosure- no human being was the target of the fit, only the tile floor and no four letter words came out of my pretty, little big mouth!

Father's Day 2011

Happy Father's Day to all the men out there that have influenced a child's life whether it be by birth or as a mentor! The positive role a MAN makes in a child's life really does matter! Thank you Jason Crow for making a difference in our children's life each day- I love you!

Jason, Braden & Kaybrie- their annual photo, for some reason posing just doesn't cut it anymore!
 The kid's didn't pick out cards this year, instead I had them fill out these cute little questionnaire's... 
Daddy Crow really enjoyed their answers!

I just had to share this little guy- no he's not a CROW! But he paid a visit anyway at Grandma Crow's House. Isn't he a beauty. But we aren't gonna feed him, there anyway. That fence is poolside.

Braden Goes to Basketball Camp

The Tulsa 66rs are hosting a "FREE" basketball camp at Academy Sports and Outdoor on June 11th and 18th and my boy is participating! I'm such a great Moma for making him get out into the heat and learn him some ball playing skills! Yep, he's gonna make his Moma some $ one of these days in one of these sports!

The Group Shot- Braden is behind the red headed girl in the green shirt!

There is my boy- back left!

Awww, look he is paying attention to the Coach! That's him on the left with his back to us!

The good news, he won the HUSTLE award this past Saturday and he won a pennant. He has one more day of camp left. Yeppers, their giving away basketballs at the next one!

(Thanks Tulsa 66ers for sending me the pictures, since I was otherwise detained at a baby shower in the air conditioning and also a special thanks to my BFF's DH for taking and spending quality time with our first born children so that they might one day really make us millions, we might share!)

In My Neck of The Woods- The Crafty Crow Strikes Again

Ha Ha!
I kind of like that...
The Crafty Crow.
It's kind of got a cutesy little ring to it.
So, if you are my family or friend you know if I supposed to give you a gift you usually see it on Facebook or receive it about a month to two weeks before its due date. Yep, that's how I roll.
My friend Angie and I decided that we/our infant room are throwing a first time mom/friend/teacher at our school a baby shower. It also helps that I was chosen by Vocalpoint to host one of the Pampers Little Miracle Mission Showers between June 4-June 18!
We are having the shower this next Saturday, June 11th for Baby Seth!
Now I get to show off a few of the things I have made- maybe next week I can show you how the entire shower wrapped up!!

A Wordle for the table, that doubles as a gift & decoration for Baby Seth's room.

A Diaper Cake- my first one! Too cute to use! Table decoration & gift, and emergency diaper use, I'm sure!

Now, what is going on in your neck of the wood? Link up at The RHOK and tell/show us!
