Getting to Know Me

With all the new followers I thought what a better time for you to get to know me a little bit better. 


This is the Lisa you all know from my profile picture.  Truth be told I am rarely that well put together.  In fact my hair is longer these days so that I can ever so nicely put it in a ponytail, okay well maybe not nicely but you get the idea.  

This is my idea of a good time, well maybe a little less muskeg though.  My hubby bought me a bike a few years ago hoping to make this a fun family sport and I love it.  If only those darn trees would stay out of my way. 



I would rather give than receive, I love the way that one simple gift can change a persons entire day.  I don't like to give gifts just to give they need to be the perfect gift.  My mom can tell you this as she usually gets her mothers day gift in July when I finally find something perfect.  

I would rather have a few quality friends than hundreds of faux friends. 

I can wash laundry like nobodies business but when it comes to putting it away that is where I really lack, I go to bed hoping the laundry fairy will do it but she must be really busy these days. 

Coffee is my friend

I have high hopes for a really nice garden but I think it is just a pipe dream this year,  oh well maybe next year.

I cherish the time my family gets to spend with all the special people in our lives.


These boys mean the world to me, I think that if they come home this dirty they must have had a good time.

My husband and me have put an offer on a piece of land and are not so patiently waiting for the owners to finalize the subdivision so we can call it our own.  10 years ago if you asked me I would be living on an acreage I would have told you, you were crazy.  Today I can't wait to get out to where there is piece and quiet and space for my kids to run and play. 


My favorite project to date that I have done and shared on the blog is my boys playhouse.  I loved how they helped me with parts of it and how they were so excited when they seen it all done.  

So I hope you learned a little something about me that you didn't know before.
