Well I haven't been blogging as much as I'd like to. My kids have been keeping me extra busy. And my 1 year old thinks that my computer is a big pretty toy and have messed a few things up. We had a tragic accident that happend right across the street from our home. I'm not sure who all is from Ohio but if you are you have probably seen the news about the oil well exploding on Sunday afternoon and two men being killed. Well that oil well is right across the street from our home and one of the men killed was my husbands uncle. We went right over when we seen the explosions knowing that his uncle would have been back there but when we got close only my husband went close because a neighbor said that only two of the tanks blew and another one could so I waited impatiently for my husband to come back out. He came out and said it was an awful sight he actually seen his uncle laying already dead on fire and there was nothing he could do. It scared me so bad because my husband and father in law work on those wells on the side to and it could have been them back there with the others. I feel so sorry for the whole family. His wife is such a nice lady and they have four children and one grandchild.So please all of you keep the whole family in your thoughts and prayers during this hard time. And that was also the day my husband was going to fix his brakes but didn't get a chance to because of all that was going on and he left for work Monday morning and the brakes went out and he crashed into a tree. Luckily he wasn't going very fast and it was right down the road so he wasn't hurt to badly just a black eye and a busted eyebrow. He is doing just fine now. So it has defiantly been a hectic week around here. Well gotta go for now but hopefully I'll be back on soon.

I just love mums!! Another one of my favorite things about fall!! I went to a local farmers market just down the road and got a pretty good deal on these. The owner actually goes to my church so I know him pretty well. I got these 3 mums for 20 bucks. The red one is HUGE and it actually was a very very bold deep red color but the sun has faded it before I got to take pics. I got a rusty orange colored one to but I cant seem to find the pic of it. I LOVE the bright yellow one!! It actually kills me to have to buy mums now cause I'm used to getting them for a dollar or two. But since my stepdad passed away last year my mom no longer runs the store/flea market where they sold mums and pumpkins and seasonal produce. I just love this time of the year because it reminds me of my step dad (but always felt like my real dad) I always went with him and my mom to the auctions and wholesale places where they bought mums and such. I always knew I would get to pick out what I wanted when we got back before they put it up for sale. I knew if I batted my eyelashes and stuck my lip out far enough that he would let me pick out any of it. Ok ok I admit I was way spoiled by him even as an adult.
Well at least I dont have to buy pumpkins this year it looks like I have a few growing out back right behind my deck. Ever since they put our new house in at this time last year I have pumpkins and gourds and squash growing all the way around my house.It must be where they tilled up the soil around the house and we never did get to planting the grass like we should have.And I'll admit I kind of just let the pumpkins and gourds rot that I had for decoration last year and so now instead of grass we have all these growing.The first pic is one that just started growing by my front steps. The other two are by my back deck.
I got all this Indian corn for 2 bucks from an amish girl that has a roadside stand right up the road. She sells her stuff so cheap!!
Hi, My name is Ashley I am a SAHM to three very upbeat boys Logan 4, Landon 14 months, Lincoln 3 months and Ive been married to my wonderful loving husband Justin for 4 years. I love anything to do with country living. I hope to one day have a few horses and maybe some other animals. I love going to flea markets and thrift stores and such. I actually grew up living right in front of a flea market.My parents owned and ran it every weekend.Boy I sure do wish they had it now that Im older and have my own house!!!My new passion now is to decorate our new home we purchased in anything primitive.It will take time since we are young and just starting out. My husband is pretty handy and has been making me things for our home.
