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!

Another spot is opening up on The X Factor judges table.



After undergoing a major overhaul for the singing competition's current season, L.A. Reid will be exiting the show to devote more time to his day job as chairman of Epic Records, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "I have the utmost respect for Simon Cowell. He is the very best and I have had the opportunity to learn so much from him," Reid said in a statement obtained by THR. "Working with him on X Factor has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience, I'm honored to have sat on the panel with such incredible talent."



Added Reid: "Of course I will miss the show. In my opinion Simon attracts the best talent, but I'm looking forward to getting back to my core business and the responsibility of running Epic Records."

Reid, 56, was the first judge hired by Cowell in 2011 and was the only judge to remain after Season 1 at which time Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger were both fired.



Although Reid expressed disappointment over having to mentor the over 25 group of singers during this season, his finalist Tate Stevens has been consistently voted into the top two rankings and could very well walk away with the $5 million prize next week when a winner is crowned on Thursday, Dec. 20.



Fox renewed The X Factor for Season 3 back in October. It is unknown if new additions Britney Spears and Demi Lovato will stay on as judges next year. The network declined to comment on Reid's departure.



Will you miss L.A. Reid? Who do you think should replace him on The X Factor?
