I still have not got my hair cut yet. I have been waiting until we have some money comming in before I do anything and I have a few more pics of not so short hair to post and see what you guys think. We helped my SIL and her family move into their new house and I got some good freebies out of the deal too :) I got a new china cabnit for my kitchen and I got a dresser for the boys room that is very needed. We dedicated Tyler at the baby dedication at church on Sunday. I am so happy we did! After church on Sunday we left and went to San Angelo to help out cousins and to pick up a welding truck for Michael to borrow until he can get his other truck up and running. We had fun while we were there. It rained the whole time which was kinda nice. We don't get that too often here in West Texas. We didn't get back into town until midnight Monday. It was a long drive...atleast it seemed like it. But all in all it was a good weekend.
Yesterday and today I have been dealing with all the business things. And boy is it a lot of work. I had to get our DBA and tax id number... and it is all in my name. So I am the proud new owner of a small business. Yesterday we ordered business cards that I designed and I have to say they look pretty good! And Michael has been doing contract work since yesterday...YAY! That is an answered prayer. God is Good!
I am off to do some grocery shopping and finish cleaning on the house :)

When I got home I realized that 99% of my clothes were from when I was in high school and before I had Jacob. Then I realized I do dress young! I need a serious change!!
I am on a mission to dress more age appropriate and to get a new hairstyle. I am not sure where I am going to start or how I am going to fund it... but will eventually get it accomplished.
Would love to hear ideas :-)

And since we are out of a job I am needing to learn how to be super frugal super fast. When they cut his hours Michael kinda started a lawn care service and has been doing that after work... now he is going to be doing more of that to supplement the loss of income. The kids and I will be going on a walk around our neighborhood putting the flyers I created on peoples door hoping to get more business. Also I will be going through the house tomorrow rounding up things that we don'e need or use anymore for another garage sale. It gets me some extra cash and it gets rid of junk I don't need anymore.
If anyone has any super frugal tips I would love to know them!

I am still in shock that an actual tornado touched down not too far from my house. Luckily it was a small tornado that did minimal damage, but the houses it did damage too were in the not so nice neighborhood and the houses don't seem to be constructed very well. *Note the aftermath photos are taken just south of my house in another subdivision.*
The day started out so pretty...

All those clothes you see are clothes that my kids can still wear. (I need to put up winter clothes and all but there are not many of those.) The problem I am having is one dresser is about go in the trash because my son used it as a ladder and it fell over on top of him and broke it. They have another dresser but it isn't that great shape either.
I was wondering if anyone had any cute and inexpensive ideas on how I could store the kids clothes so they aren't all over the place and so they are easy to get too. A friend of mine suggested the wicker baskets under the bed and in the closet, but I am not sure!?!
Any help is welcomed :-) I will post more pics of the closet and room when they wake up from naptime.

These are my herbs: Rosemary, Tarragon, Basil, Dill, Thyme Oregeno, Stevia and Mint. The Stevia is great as a natural sweetener!
And lastly are my tomato plants. I have 3 or 4 different kinds ranging from big to small.
Here is a look at my entire garden. I know it is not perfect but I absolutly love it!!!
