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!

If the end of the Mayan calendar signals a Biblical-sized flood, one man will be really prepared.



After 20 years, Johan Huibers has finished building a full-scale Noah's Ark, People reports.



The Dutch man used the Bible as his guide, converting cubits to modern measurements. His Ark is 427 feet long, 85 feet wide and 75 feet high.



Which shows have been renewed and which have been canceled?



Still, Huibers' Ark has nothing to do with a specific impending date. "I had a call from American television," he told the Associated Press. "This has nothing to do with the end of the Mayan calendar." Instead, he says, it's about what the Bible prophesizes. "I want to make people question that so that they go looking for answers," he says.



The Ark is currently home to a small petting zoo, a restaurant and a movie theater.
