Poor, Neglected Blog

Hi Everyone!

I am still alive and kickin’! Princess Buttercup and I were in a play that ran last weekend and will run this up-coming weekend. Last week was “tech week,” and we survived! I also taught a creative writing workshop at a nearby library and had some writing deadlines, so I was operating in super-overdrive.

Hope to have more posts soon!

Hugs,
Stephanie

Road Trip 2014

Road Trip 2014

Well, we are finally back from the beach, and I took a ton (a ton!) of photos!

We had so much fun visiting Gulf Shores and Dauphin Island. The weather was absolutely perfect for mid-September–neither too hot and humid nor too cold.

We grabbed our boogie boards and caught some gnarly waves, built sand castles, and searched for ghost crabs at night.

We ate so much seafood (and junk food) that we all are going to have to detox in the coming weeks.

I have several (s-e-v-e-r-a-l!) writing deadlines on October 1st, so I’ll just post a few of the pics from the beach. More stories to follow…

Will Write Soon!

Hi Everyone!

We just got back from a fun beach trip and a 3-day Dauphin Island Sea Lab field trip with Princess Buttercup’s class! I am all relaxed and ready to post on Monday about the fun things that we did and saw. Meanwhile, I’m looking forward to a nice, long bath and catching up on sleep!

Best regards,
Stephanie

Shabby Chic!

A lady who I recently met introduced me to University Pickers on 3024C University Drive in Huntsville.

I went a little Shabby Chic crazy and took a bunch of pictures of stuff I liked. University Pickers sells vintage, re-purposed, and handmade products.

Hope you enjoy!
