It’s been 3 days since my surgery and I’m home resting. I want to tell everyone THANK YOU for all of your support , love, prayers and hugs! It has helped me get through these past few days. My husband has been so great, even spending the night in the hospital with me. What would I do without all of this support?
This post will be short because I still feel like I’m going to doze off any minute but I wanted to say Thank You and share the initial pathology came back that the surgeon was able to get clean margins all the away around, so the cancer is out!!!! The rest of the pathology will take a little longer. I will sit down in the next few days and write a real post but wanted to get this “quickie post” out .
Please know every single note, hug, prayer, went a long way and I appreciate it all so much!!!!
Heard from the Surgeon today they Thankfully moved my surgery time up to 8am. Yay I will be so glad when this is behind me. Thank you everyone for all of your Love, Prayers and Hugs!!

I did a great big happy dance today when I found out my old window project was featured on Better After blog. Thank You Lindsey. If you haven’t checked out her blog, do it it’s so fun. She features before and after projects but my favorite part is how much her personality comes through in her writing. She is very witty!
Stay tuned for a couple more projects this weekend. It’s also my first Saturday back at work hairstyling. The shoulder is holding up very good. I am relieved to be able to work again. I hope you all have great plans for the weekend. It is Superbowl weekend after all. Also, stay tuned on Monday for a big announcement my first giveaway.
If you remember my post http://winecountrymama.com/2011/12/30/welcoming-2012-and-good-bye-2011/ you’ll see that one of my 2012 goals, number 9 to be exact, is organize, organize and more organizing. To help keep me on track I joined
I figured this would help me be more accountable.
Week #1 Organized Home Challenge
Kitchen Organization: Countertops & Sink
I was glad it was a pretty easy one to start out. You really don’t realize how much clutter is on your kitchen counters until you see the after pictures wow. My goal is to keep my kitchen sink clean. No dirty dishes left in the sink. I have shared this with my children, we will see how it goes………
Here are my before and after pictures:
cluttered kitchen counter typical day
as you can see we definitely have a junk mail/ litter problem
So I worked on de-cluttering. I put a couple of baskets in the glass cabinet for mail and papers. Deep cleaned the sink and counters.
I would still like to figure something out for the cords (chargers etc.) I can really see how mentally it makes a huge difference having a clean sink and uncluttered counters.
after: clutter free
I love this cute little red plate it adds some color and corrals my soaps. When we put in our kitchen we put in an appliance garage that hides all kinds of clutter.
So my first week is done now it’s just keeping it that way that is the challenge.
Week 2 is going to be more of a challenge its kitchen cabinets
I just wanted to send out a quick post to let you know I linked up my Thanksgiving Table blog. It’s a contest for tablescapes at Centsationalgirl. Kate’s blog was the first one I ever read. I fell in love with everything about it. You can find her at www.centsationalgirl.com. Home Goods (best store ever) is giving away some gift cards. So cool to look at everyone’s ideas.
I am working on a bigger post for tomorrow with lots of pictures so I hope you come back for a visit then.
I feel I have many blessing in life. I have always felt like a “cups half full” kinda gal. I have a great family, friends and clients. We own a house, the cutest dog in the whole wide world and many other material/non-material things that make our life full. But don’t get me wrong I also have “there will be days like this my mama said” days. I had one yesterday in fact. The trails of not working, missing all my clients and not physically being able to do things can really get me down but then throw in a really painful and hard session of physical therapy and it kinda put me over the edge. I felt like I was going backwards instead of forwards. So after resting a little I decided to lift my spirits I would start gathering props to take to my moms for the Thanksgiving Table. I am so excited to plan and decorate the table with my daughter this year. We have been going “Pintrest” crazy. If you don’t know what pintrest is you HAVE to check it out. you can pin up with me by following Amy Davis.
After lots of plotting and scheming we have come up with a theme of silver, bronze, gold and copper. You know me, I am a bling addict!
I also purchase small frames at the dollar Store in Vacaville, painted them copper and am going to use them as name tags either on the table or tied with a ribbon on the back of each chair.
I am heading off to my mom and dads again in the morning. My parents are picking up Kaylee at the airport at 9:00 so I will rush right there after PT so I can give her a great big hug and enjoy the rest of my family (aka blessings) for the Holiday. I will post pictures of the table when it’s all put together. I hope you are enjoying all of your “Blessings” this week!
