Shorty

I am 5’4.25″ tall.

    Feeling Thankful
  • My husband recently surprised me by saying he had purchased tickets to a Garth Brooks concert.

Though I didn’t necessarily… [Continue Reading]

    Wisdom From Garth
  • I am generally a fairly happy go lucky kind of girl. I don’t worry about much, and I have a tendency to think that everything will turn out ok in the end. But opening a storefront… it’s a lot of work. It’s pretty darn stressful. I knew it would be. And I readily signed up… [Continue Reading]

  • Lordy Lordy guess who’s…. just kidding. I’m not going to be that dorky! But you get the hint. I’m turning 40 tomorrow!  AAhhh! I don’t mind turning 40. I just don’t like the wrinkles, moodiness and body changes that comes with it. *sigh In honor of my 40th birthday I’m letting you in on 40 random… [Continue Reading]
