My First Day

Okay, so today is the first day that I am doing an entry for my blog. This whole blog thing is so new to me, and of course I have no idea what I'm doing. I would love to sound like an expert, but that I am not!!

So here is what you need to know about me:

I absolutely LOVE to read.
I love crazy tights and socks.
I love silly hats.
I love nutty rain boots.
I almost always love the underdog.
I love kind, loving people.
I love the not so obvious.
I'm a sucker for a good romance.
I LOVE Harry Potter (Ron Weasley is my favorite).
I adore the Twilight Saga (team Edward all the way).
I am a HUGE fan of most anything British (something about that accent!).
I totally dig foreign films.
I am soooooooo in love with my husband (he still makes me swoon after almost 12 years!).
I adore every inch of my children.
I love most anything that is vintage ( I swear I'm from another time period).
I'm a very eclectic person, I LOVE a little bit of this, and a little bit of that, so that's probably exactly what you will get on this blog!

The name My Lemonade Dreams was thought of by my husband. When I opened up my Etsy shop I couldn't think of an interesting name, that completely represented me. So I thought I would pick Al's brain (Al is my husband). It was quite interesting, because not only would this tell me how creative he was, but it would also be a test to see how well he pays attention to who I am ( I know, the whole "test" thing was a bit devious, but what can I say).

Anyhow, after shooting out a couple of mediocre names, he finally said "Hey, every week you stand here making lemonade ( a household staple with my family), and you're  always talking about what you're dreaming of doing. Call your shop My Lemonade Dreams!" Well, needless to say I loved the name,and he passed the test! It's funny, sometimes people "see" us when we don't even know their looking!

I would LOVE for everyone to visit my Etsy shop, My Lemonade Dreams at, and tell me what you think!

It looks like this is the end of my entry today, my little Scout is in the back harassing me. It never ceases to amaze me how someone so little can be so loud!!
