My thoughts today when shopping for ceiling fans:
1. Who knew there were so many options of fans?
2. Why does this guy know so much about ceiling fans?
3. My neck hurts.
4. I can’t even look up at these for five minutes... how the heck am I going to install these?
5. I thought this was going to be a breeze. (ha, good one self)
Check out at Home Depot was $350 for fans for the new house (grown up probz). I normally would’ve cringed then charged it to my credit card, but shoutout to the savings I built up for this adventure. It def wasn’t fun paying off so much debt, but I’m constantly reminded throughout this process how WORTH it it was. 💸🙏🏼
This post is going to be a sort of #tbt /#meettheartist /#meetthemaker all rolled into one. I'm not real sure about this, but here goes! I'm an artist, graphic designer, commercial artist, retired art teacher/special ed teacher/tutor, stained glass designer, crochet fanatic (since I was 11), mom to 2 adult children, human mom to 3 rescue cats and a rescue tortoise, life partner (wife), caregiver (to a 96 yr. old relative with Alzheimer's), crafty, traveling and camping woman. I love coffee, white chocolate, nature, the ocean, and pizza (it should have it's own food group). I dare anyone to put a label on me because you will likely get it wrong. I don't believe in labels. My latest adventure has been crochet and reviving my Etsy shop. I've been categorized by so many people as a crochet "granny", but if you look at my creations, I believe I'm nothing close to that! I love coming up with new ideas and learning new things. I don't think we ever "get there" in life, but it's a continuing process. I'm on this ride, so I may as well enjoy it! I stopped riding my motorcycle because of anxiety, but I do miss it. The best advice my mom gave me was, "Go outside and play!" I'm glad I did. I grew up in Minnesota and now live in the desert. I'm not too keen about either. Where to next? If you've read this far, I want to sincerely thank you! I never in a million years thought I would get 100 followers, yet I'm now pushing 200. I'm sure that doesn't seem like much, but it means the world to me! ❤️😘☮️☕️🕉💚🙏🏼💛 Lots of love, Kathleen. #tbt#meettheartist#meetthemaker#motorcycles#motorcyclegirl#artist#crochet#crochetaddict#yarnbender#catlover#coffeejunkie#hondanighthawk
What she tackles, she conquers. 🎓
Today, I achieved one of my biggest goals of graduating with my Masters degree. I’ve always had big dreams! No matter the obstacles I’ve had to conquer or the adversity I have faced, I’ve stood firm in my goals and dreams. Because of that, I can say I am damn proud of myself! It’s okay to go after your dreams and it’s okay to be be prideful in your accomplishments!!! 👏🏽
So with that, I want to say: Greet the future with anticipation. Dream big and work hard. Remember your roots and ALWAYS remain humble! 💜 #MHR#dreamer
I was standing in line at Starbucks the other day, and a sign hanging on the bulletin board caught my eye. It read in giant, blue letters:
Life’s most persistent and urgent question is “what are you doing for others?”
Waking up before the sun isn’t always easy or fun. Walking the same path every single morning can become a little monotonous. But the look in this dude’s eyes when he looks up at me and smiles midway through our walk literally makes my heart want to burst.
Best part of my day every single time. 🌞🐾❤️
《 PROUD MOMMY 》 Last day of second grade for this guy 😱 The beginning was a huge struggle (diagnosed with ADHD) but in the end he came out strong with great grades 🙌🙌 So proud... let's bring on the summer fun!! 💕
