Welcome To On The Avenue Home Decor & Gifts. Years ago my husband and I bought our first home. It was a very old home and needed a lot of tender love and care. I had the vision of what I wanted and my husband was able to help me bring it to life. As we began building and creating items for our home, we had another idea..... What if we started our own business and offered our creations to others who share the same love and passion for decorating as we do. Here we are, 15 years later, sharing our creations and designs with friends everywhere.

Hey Everyone!!!!!
Last Week Was Seriously a BLAST!!!!!!  My sweet husband booked a "SURPRISE" Vegas Vacation for me and my mom for my birthday!!!  Our main event was seeing Donny & Marie Osmond's Vegas Show!!!!  My MOM was and still is a HUGE Donny Fan.  I grew up listening to the Osmonds and couldn't wait to hear them in person.  Oh My Heck!  It was so much fun. 
I have to admit.... I am not a traveler.   I am a HOME BODY!!! One of the main reasons for that is I get very motion sick.  Horrible motion sick!  I drive almost everywhere we go because I feel yucky if I don't.  So Flying is even worse!!!!!!  Unfortunately, I inherited this motion sickness  from my sweet mom, so we were bumps on a log for the first day!   But being a bump on a log with no responsibilities is kindof fun for a day!!!

The second day we were there was awesome.
  We were able to attend the Las Vegas LDS Temple.  Wow, it is beautiful inside and out!!!!  It was so amazing and I am so grateful for that experience with my mom!!!

Friday night was the concert and it was awesome.  Eric got us tickets on the front row and it was so cool!  During the show he asked all of us to message him on facebook letting him know we were there and he would choose a winner who would receive a free CD!!  
OH MY HECK!!!!!!  HOLY SMACK!!!
He PICKED ME!!!!!!!

Can you believe it?  My mom and I were giddy!  It was so awesome.  I messaged him on facebook thanking him for the cd and he replied!!!!  Just a cherry on the top of a great weekend.  

Today is also my Mom's Birthday!!!!
Happy Happy Birthday to the best mom in the whole wide world!  I can't imagine my life without you!!!!

And now back to business.....
We have a winner for last week's $25.00 gift Card!!!
Congratulations To Karen Duncan!!!

Good Morning Everyone and
Happy Monday!!!!!
Last week was awesome!  It was Spring Break Around here which meant Eric and the kiddos were home all week.  We worked really hard and also spent a couple of days at  Ghavan's Rodeo.  He did SOOOOO Good.  He and his partner actually caught (roped) their calf.  Ghavan was the header and his parther was the heeler.  It just made me so happy.  I think anytime a parent watches their child work hard and accomplish their goal it is a "Happy Parent Moment".  Another event in the High School Rodeo is Trap shooting.  My boys have both shot competitive skeet and trap for several years and they both decided to complete this year through High School Rodeo.  Ky wasn't able to shoot at this past rodeo, but Ghavan did.  It wasn't his best day for shooting, but we sure had fun being together.   Oh and my sweet Chloee...... she just goes with the flow.  Take a few treats, a notebook and a few other things to keep her busy and she just goes with the flow.  I was actually feeling a little lonely last night when I knew they were all going back to school and work today.  sniff, sniff......
I know they will be home before we know it. 
Way To Go Ghavan!!!

We have a winner for last week's Monday Drawing.......
Congratulations To Angie Petersen!!!!

Hello Everyone!!!
Seriously..... I could lay my head down right now on this desk and go to sleep.  I don't know what is going on, but I am so stinkin' tired!  DANG!!!!  Ky just told me to WAKE Up!! It's Spring Break.  Then I realized..... I know why I am so tired..... He kept me up way too late last night.  We had one of those moments where he decided to come in and talk to Eric and I last night while we were trying to go to sleep.  It was awesome.  I love those moments.  Everything alway seems a lot funnier after 10:00, so it was really fun!  - Thanks for keeping me up Ky!!!

Good Morning Friends.....
So yesterday I turned 40!!!  I can't believe I'm 40!!  My dad
said it is my harder to have a child that is turning 40 that it is to be 40.  Once again, I am sure he is right!!  Having Kylan turning 18 this year is killing me!  LOL  Yesterday morning Chloee climbed into bed with us (in the middle spot where she no longer fits - lol) and said..... "Just think Mom.... only 60 more years and you will be 100".  That was so stinkin' funny.  Eric and I laughed and laughed.  I just love being a mom.  

I have spent so much time pondering the last 10 years.  So many ups and downs.  Chloee was born when I turned 30, Eric started his college degree and graduated in 4 years with an Engineering degree. Eric taught high school for 5 years, both of my boys became teenagers, we opened a store front (On The Avenue), closed that store front and put everything online, I was diagnosed with cancer and after a year of surgeries am now cancer free, we sold our home of 17 years and moved into
our dream home.  I have served in the Young Women's and primary organizations in our church, went to a Bon Jovi Concert with my kids (and we rocked it), we attended the funeral of my sweet brother in law Kenny, I got my first smart phone and learned to text and I gained a much deeper love for my savior. I have fallen more deeply in love with my sweetheart of 23 years. I went from changing diapers to making dinner for my son's first prom.  We buried our precious dog Higgins in the pouring rain and cried for days because he was the best dog ever!    The list goes on and on....... what an amazing life!  I am grateful for EVERY experience.  Both Good and Bad!  Here is to another 10 years before us!  Wow..... here we go!!!

Another big thanks to all of you who have become such great friends!!!  We are so blessed because of all of you!  
Enjoy Every Day!!!!!


















Thank you for being part of the last 40 years!
Here is to Many many More.
Maybe even 60!!!!
