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!

RuPaul and Marg Helgenberger | Photo Credits: Logo

When you make as many millions as Marg Helgenberger did during her 12 seasons on CSI, you say yes to projects because they seem fun. So in April, this longtime fan of RuPaul's Drag Race will be a judge on an episode of the Logo hit (Season 5 premieres on January 28). In one competition, the drag queens must make gowns out of candy, a real challenge when you consider I witnessed a licorice dress melt under the hot stage lights. Other judges and special guests this season include Camille Grammer, Juliette Lewis, Kristen Johnston, Paulina Porizkova, Chaz Bono, La Toya Jackson, Celebrity Apprentice's Aubrey O'Day, Knots Landing vet Joan Van Ark, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Wilmer Valderrama and attorney Gloria Allred.



So where does Helgenberger go from here? She's turned down several recurring roles since leaving CSI because, she says, "I was on one of the best procedurals, so the bar was raised pretty high." And while she's hesitant to reprise her role as Catherine to solve a routine crime, the actress says that if the writers came up with something special, she'd welcome a call. "Transferring to the FBI was a big thing for Catherine, so the return would have to be worthy," she adds, suggesting "some international threat that opens Las Vegas up to the world."
