Who's Coming to Convention With Me?
Mini Masterpiece for April – Collect them All!
So a couple months ago I was at Joanne's I had to get some tulle for my Spring Fling demo and the lady that cut my stuff looked so familiar and I was like OMG it is Miss Araujo, she was Eric's favorite teacher, God blessed us when he brought her into Eric's life. He loved her and did not want to disappoint her ever. My memory is horrible but I think maybe 4th or 5th grade was the first time he had her. She could make him mind and if he misbehaved at home we would tell him "Miss Araujo wouldn't like that, or do you want us to tell Miss Araujo?" and he would usually straighten up. So he had her for quite a few years and then his last couple years of high school he got her again when she started teaching at the high school, what a happy day. So when he graduated she was crying as bad as us. So I could not wait to take him to Joanne's with me. So today when he got home from school I had to run to the store so I asked if he wanted to go and he said sure. I didn't know if she was working but yay, she was. When we walked in she was right there at the register.
So she excused herself from the register and came and gave him a big hug and he was so surprised and happy. She teased him about his beard and she gave him a kiss and we promised to get together very soon. I sure hope you have an amazing teacher in your life. I know I have had a few.
Also last week I went and got my Nitro washed and there is an antique store right by there, and it beckoned me to go in…so I did…you can't say no to beckoning. I picked up Jeff a very cool metal drawer dealie for his shop. While I was there I saw this shabby bed frame and it was full size just like the guest room. It was originally $225.00 and I think it was marked down to $130.00 or $150.00…but since I had gotten Jeff his thing I resisted…but I kept thinking about it. So today Jeff had to take my Nitro in and have the tail light fixed so I had his pick up. While I was reading my morning email, I saw an email from the antique store saying sale and the bed was $99.00…I called right away and was like is that the bed in the back room, and it was and they measured it and it was the right size, and well I had the pick up so it was fate so I went and got it.
Right now it is kind of a white/greenish/chalky kinda look, so after we get back from vacation I am gonna make it more vanilla shabby. Cool eh?
Well this old gal is off here, today was hotel registration for convention and it was crazy busy. I have been on the computer too much lately and I think that is causing my shoulder aches…so I'm calling it a night early.
Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in.

I'm so glad that Eric had a great teacher in his life. They can make or break a kid. Jade has been lucky like that as well. There are a couple of teachers that went above and beyond for her and she still keeps in touch with them off and on. I remember going to a friends wedding. It was a small wedding, only their close family and friends – and I was honored to be included in the guest list. When it was time to do the speeches, when her hubby got up and did his, he spoke about and to a fella and it turned out to be a teacher he had who was a very big part of his life. They kept in touch over the years and it was a very special and trust me emotional part of the wedding. So I am glad that Eric had a special teacher like that. Our kids need as much help as they can get and with good/great teachers, they will turn into great adults.

Mrs. Newton was that teacher for me. She knew when I was not myself and took me aside and let me cry out my sadness and that meant so much to me. Thank you Mrs. Newton.
