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!

West Virginia Senator Jo Manchin has a bone to pick with MTV's new reality show Buckwild.

The series, which premieres next month, follows a group of twentysomethings living in a small West Virginia town and has been described as "The Jersey Shore of Appalachia." BuzzFeed obtained a letter the senator sent MTV requesting the network cancel the series.

"As a U.S. Senator, I am repulsed at this business venture, where some Americans are making money off of the poor decisions of our youth," Manchin wrote. "I have no problem with people in this country trying to earn a profit, but I would ask them: Would they do this to their own children, in their own neighborhood, in their own home state?"

According to Manchin, Buckwild is a "travesty" which "plays on ugly, inaccurate stereotypes about the people of West Virginia." Buckwild's producer John Stevens spoke to Entertainment Weekly in defense of the series, explaining: "It's not like looking at a train wreck. That's not what it is.

"It's quite the opposite of everything else on TV," Johnson continued. "These kids aren't hooked into the internet. They don't do Facebook. Shane doesn't even have a cell phone. The parents have to go find in the woods when I call to find him. He's usually out there on his ATV and motorcycle. That's their idea of fun. That's what so refreshing."

Watch a trailer for Buckwild below. Do you agree with Manchin or Stevens?

Buckwild premieres Thursday, Jan. 3 at 10/9c.
