This post, however, is about a truly entertaining and inspiring lady I watch on YouTube. Her name is Nancy and her channel on YouTube is called Nancy Today. I find myself chuckling alot while watching Nancy. She is one true pioneer woman and although I laugh at some of her videos, the information she provides really is great information! Whether she's throwing a batch of twelve dozen cookies in the oven or sitting in one of her homemade teepee's (yes, I said teepee) while building a roaring bonfire inside or taking you along on a ride to the grocery store to educate you on how to shop cheaply, she really is fun to watch. Here are just a few videos that I really love! Take note, she is no nonsense. Seriously! If her house is a mess you just have to deal with it. Lol! I also love the crazy and adorable hats she wears. I think she makes most of them. I love 'em too! Enjoy!

I am hooked on Nancy's videos. She will even take you on her travels! I believe she's in Athens, Georgia right now. Hope you all get a chance to watch her if you're at all interested. I get such a great kick out of her and she always leaves me smiling. :)

We had tea twice while they were in town. Actually, the weather was kind of perfect for tea....it was rainy while they were here (go figure). We had our first tea at an adorable and very British tea house called Lady Di's British Store and Tea Room in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
Here's me and sis!
Various corners of the tea room were filled with vintage goodies...A delicate teacup waiting to be filled with some comforting tea...

Good coffee and chocolate croissants from Trader Joes (thanks to my sister's recommendation) helped out with the happiness factor. :) If you haven't tried these croissants from Trader Joes I highly recommend you run right over to your nearest TJ's and buy a couple of these packages. They taste as fresh as a croissant straight out of a Paris bakery!
Janet and Paris finally arrived! I showed them to the guest bedroom and this is the first thing Paris found and tried on. I think she makes a beautiful angel. :)
Right after, she found her new best friend who kept her company the whole time!
Quincy was such a good sport and was even man enough to wear a barrette. Lol
The next day I took Paris to the cat shelter to play with even MORE cats. I'm sure she had her fill of cats during her visit.
There were even a few Easter chicks there. Aren't they precious?
That's it for now! More on my next post and it will be very soon. I promise this time! All the kitties are doing fine.....Emma had one asthma attack a few days ago but I figured out how to gain control of it at home with help of her inhaler and instructions from the vet to increase her prednisone dosage. It's so funny, now Emma sees the inhaler and doesn't run. I think she now knows it makes her feel better.
More to come!
