Puppy Love

New kid in town....and he is a wild one!
My Husband loves animals and he has always wanted a boxer so being the self scarifying wife, that I am. I bought him a boxer pup for his Birthday. My Husbands Birthday is Dec. 28th.....our little spitfire came to live with us on Dec. 22.

My husband is a Truck driver and is gone about 3 nights out of the week...which puts his new puppy in the charge of his new Mother...ME!!! That is where the self scarifying comes into play. It is like having an infant in the house and I don't get to be a stay at home Mom!

Diesel is his name.....and playing is his game! Sophee'a has grown fond of her new brother and is actually starting to act more like a dog. She was an only child for awhile and doesn't care much for other dogs.

This might explain the, puppy......and time with my new Husband. Life is busy but ohhhhh soooooo goooood!!!!!

Cruise with me baby!

My Hubby and I bought new bikes....Mtn. bike for him and Phat Cycle (Men's) beach cruiser for me.
Love the color.....Root Beer!
 I added a large metal basket to make it a little more GURLY and because my intentions were to take Sophee'a with us on short rides.
She has never been in a bike basket before and she acted like she was born in
She made herself comfy and was calm and relaxed the whole time. I love my poodle I love my bike and I love my City Gurl~Country Gurl life!

"The Rustic Rose"

Welcome.....The Rustic Rose!

 I sold my 1961 Fireball (3 yrs. ago) and had major regrets but life has taken me on a new path....and I am enjoying the ride. It has led me on an exciting adventure....a wonderful story is unfolding.
I love my job...I love my life...I love my Family and I love being married to my "BOY"!
We did not have vacation time for a year on our 1st Anniversary, we will be headed to Round Top, Texas...home of the "JUNK GYPSIES".
We will be traveling in our..NEW TO US....vintage, 1988 Terry, Resort Travel Trailer. She is different from my Fireball...who never was given a name..I am excited to Glamp this Gal... in Romantic Prairie style with a Rustic Western, Country theme....and lots of RoSeS!
I have started collecting and it is always so fun to purchase items that will create a "home away from home" or even our Guest cottage at "Green Acres".
We will not be repainting her....because she matches my husbands truck...AS IS.
I will however...have a small design painted on her....something like this.

I am so Happy to be back in the world of Glamping and  now I can FINALLY join the "Sisters on the Fly"!

UPDATE......I am Sister #4268

XOXO, Sheri

Our Vintage....Country wedding! 10~4~13

WE are now....Mr. & Mrs. Tate! My wedding and reception was everything that I had envisioned and more.
My dress was a $7 thrift shop find!

It was perfectly imperfect.....I loved every element. It was a family affair and it was an event to remember..FOREVER! The decor, the food....everything was ME and a reflection of us and the life we are building together. My groom was in on every last detail..he didn't always get where I was going but he was along for the ride and even he was impressed by the final result.

The ceremony and reception were held in our back yard at "Green Acres"...although this is a rental property, we hope to be able to purchase it one day.

I own everything in the pictures and we did not rent any props nor have a wedding planner or professional photographer. We purchased items at Walmart, Kmart, Savemart grocery store for mini roses and white pumpkins..and Vons grocery store for red roses used in big ball jar vases. I was able to find perfect items at thrift red rose plates and wheat plates....all burlap banners were ordered on ebay from a great barrels and old doors from craigslist and then I incorporated items from around my home.

 partial view of back yard....

 I was thrilled that all of our guests had a great time,enjoyed the food and commented on how amazing our decor was....My daughter made all the signs...I had the items to use and she personalized it based on sayings and songs that I chose.

Cupcake wars....

It's mere weeks until our wedding!!!! We ordered all the food and cupcakes today....We usually agree or at least meet half way...but he wanted strawberry and I said red velvet. Although it was far from an episode of Bridezilla....we all know the outcome...Bride wins and red velvet it is.

It is not that I dislike's just we were limited to 4 flavors because they make in batches of 24. 4 flavors..... and the choices were many!!!! I chose to stay within our color anyone but me will
