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!

Whitney Houston was the top U.S. trending topic in 2012, Google spokesperson Daniel Sieberg said on Today Wednesday morning.



Was your favorite show canceled?



Houston, who died in February, was followed by other timely events including Hurricane Sandy and then Election 2012. Hunger Games came in fourth, followed by NBA basketball player Jeremy Lin and Olympics 2012. Amanda Todd, a teen who committed suicide after being bullied, Gangnam Style, Michael Clarke Duncan, who died in September, and Kony 2012 rounded out the Top 10.



Put away your cleavage, ladies!



As for image searches, teen heartthrobs ruled the Top 10. One Direction was No. 1, "Funny Pictures" was No. 2, Nicki Minaj landed at No. 3, Justin Bieber was No. 4, "Love" was No. 5, "Flowers" No. 6, Selena Gomez was No. 7, "Heart" at No. 8, "Money" at No. 9 and "iPhone 5" at No. 10.
