Five Year Anniversary

It’s my five year blogiversary!  I can’t believe it’s been this long!  I have so enjoyed sharing many milestones with you.  A move, a new baby, a fixer upper and all of the ups and downs in between!

Five Years

Five Years

While the styles have changed since I first started blogging, my commitment to bringing you affordable, real mom style, sharing in my parenting sagas, showing you updates on my house and in the fixer upper, and whatever crazy project idea I have next has not.  Thank you for sticking through with me through long periods of craziness- summers and juggling a new baby with three others, beginning new writing venues, etc.

I love sharing my life with you and I hope to keep my readers stylish- even from the sticks!

A Couple of Shenanigans

Okay, so the snow officially “hit” here and I’m trying to put our fixer upper house projects on hold through the holidays.  I’ll still post more updates as there is still a bunch to show you completed but, for now, our work has stalled.  We need a holiday, literally.

Meanwhile I did a Christmas tree for our town’s Christmas tree festival and the theme this year was All Around the World.  Instead of doing a big tree this year, I thought I’d keep it simple and do a vignette. So here is my door and desk with a typewriter dressed up for Christmas.  Style from the Sticks is supposed to be writing Christmas cards which get sent all around the world.  Get it?

Another item I don’t want to forget to mention is a little movie roll I recently had. I played the ditsy blonde in a movie that was made in my town. I’m always typecast. 🙂 I had a really small part but I had a good time doing it and meeting new people. Here I am before the premier. The best part is that three of my kids got to be extras and I know they were excited about that.

Oh, and I’ll be out Black Friday shopping again this year.  If you’re out, live tweet with me! @stylefmthestixs

I am also hoping to get a little holiday tour of my house up later in the season.  We’ll see how fast I can put things together!

Have a happy thanksgiving!

A Little Fooling Around

We took one more round of pictures, just as the sun was setting the other night.  Thought I would share my talented friend’s hard work!

I wore my new favorite hat which absolutely mortifies the Mr. when I wear it.  Doesn’t he know that Indiana Jones is back?

Thank you friend!

New Pictures

So I had a few new pictures taken and I wanted to share them with you before I put them up and took down the pictures of me pregnant last year.  🙂

Just a quick little photo shoot with my friend.  Believe it or not, I’m very uncomfortable having my picture taken.  But she does such a great job, it’s hard not to have fun anyway!  Thank you girl!
