I grew up in Charleston,WV and graduated from Charleston High School in 1988. (WOW...where has the time gone to?) After graduating, I attended Marshall University. (Was probably there a little longer than I was suppose to be). While at my stay in Huntington, I majored in advertising and minored in marketing through the school of Journalism. I later met my root to Jackson county (my ex husband) and we moved here to start our family and I finished my degree. I live in Ravenswood and have 2 sons, Hayden and Trey. Hayden is a freshman at Ravenswood High School. He is a member of the football and basketball teams. Trey attends Ravenswood Grade School and is in 5th grade. Trey plays basketball and recently was selected to be on the Elite Team at the Elite Center in Parkersburg. So between the 2 of them, we stay pretty busy with their sports schedules, etc.

I live in a home built in the late 1800's. Boy ole' boy has it been a continuous project since day one! Like many, there is either not enough money or there is not enough time.

Everything I've decorated with in the past sparks a memory today like a old song on the radio... It's fun looking at old photos and seeing items that made your space your \x34home\x34 years ago. . I have kept a few of my favorite decorations and have incorporated them in my home now, minus the yard sale mallards which hopefully flew south.

I look forward sharing home decor ideas with you through this blog and would love to hear your stories and ideas on what makes your house your \x34home\x34!

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Wednesday's episode of American Horror Story: Asylum. Read at your own risk.]



First aliens, then Nazis and now... a murderous Santa Claus!



He knows when you've been naughty and when you've been nice - and he'll kill you either way. That's how dangerous Lee Emerson (Ian McShane) really is. A former petty criminal who was raped by carol-singing jailers, Emerson escaped and took his pain out on 18 (!) unsuspecting families while dressed like Father Christmas. "You know the difference between that Santa Claus and me? He only comes once a year," Emerson says while threatening to rape not the wife, but the husband of one such family.



American Horror Story Postmortem: Bloody Face Unmasked! What's Next?



Alas, Emerson was eventually turned over to Briarcliff, which is once again celebrating the holidays now that the Grinch Sister Jude (Jessica Lange) is no longer in charge. She had banned the holiday after Emerson killed an orderly wearing a Santa cap and beard in the past. Sister Mary Eunice (Lily Rabe), however, doesn't actually care about the holidays. She just wants to unleash Emerson on the unsuspecting Frank (Fredric Lehne), the security guard who's fraught with guilt over accidentally shooting Grace (Lizzie Brochere). Frank eventually dies, but at the hands of Mary Eunice, who slits his throat in front of Emerson's cell.



But Emerson does eventually get in on the mayhem. After Arden (James Cromwell) tricks Jude into returning to Briarcliff under the guise of wanting to rid the evil within Mary Eunice, Emerson gets his revenge on Jude by beating her into submission. Fortunately, before Emerson can show her his, ahem, candy cane, she stabs him in the neck. But will she ever make it out of Briarcliff alive knowing Arden had betrayed her and the devil is still in charge?



Get Committed: Who Did the Angel of Death Visit on American Horror Story: Asylum?



Poor Lana (Sarah Paulson) was also held captive within Briarcliff, finally making her way to a phone to call the police on Dr. Thredson (Zachary Quinto), only to discover that he's in the room waiting. He reveals that he's burned all evidence of Bloody Face, but he'll start anew with Lana's body! Fortunately, Kit (Evan Peters) saves the day by knocking Thredson out, but he does prevent Lana from killing Thredson lest they have no proof that Kit isn't actually Bloody Face. (Too bad future Bloody Face is probably growing inside of Lana considering she was throwing up. Morning sickness, much? Maybe our theory isn't so sick after all!)



Oh, and who can forget Arden wheeling Grace's body out through the death chute only to come face-to-face with the aliens, who then take her body? No really, can we forget that part?



Do you think Thredson will really be discovered for who he is? Will Lana, Jude and Kit make it out of Briarcliff alive? Hit the comments with your thoughts!



American Horror Story: Asylum airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on FX.
