Into the Great Blue Yonder

I was privileged enough this past Tuesday to participate in a blogger event that we learned more about ADHD (I will be doing another post on the ADHD Book) and we all got to experience a helicopter ride.
Getting this experience for most people is a once in a lifetime event. 
Mine not only was a terrific experience but a needed one.

When I was 17 (prom night no less). My best friend's date who was the driver, fell asleep at the wheel and when he woke up suddenly, he swerved off the road up a dirt sand dune and the car rolled 3 times. After we finally stopped, and our car was laying on the right hand side. my date had to drag me out the side window and then commenced to help my friend and her date out of the front L window (which was the top of the car now). We we're really lucky that a lady was driving down that road soon after. this was a road that not too many people travel especially at night (it was probably 20 miles outside the town limits). She was able to contact 911 and within 30 minutes they had a flight for life helicopter and an ambulance with multiple EMT's to help us. The driver had a couple bruised ribs from hitting the steering wheel. My friend had a twisted ankle. My date had a headache. AND I had a broken wrist, multiply cuts from broken glass and bruises up and down my body. I was the ONLY one without a seatbelt on, reason being we had just dropped off another friend 30 minutes prior and I never scooted over to get into a seatbelt and the middle section didn't have one. So once the EMT's arrived on the scene. I was sitting in the front seat of the ladie's truck and 2 or 3 EMT's came over to question me about my injuries. They soon after decided to put the 2 guys into the ambulance and me and my friend in the helicopter, me because of all my injuries and my friend because she was going into shock. They lead me from the truck to a gurney and strapped me down. Once I was strapped in, 4 of the EMT's grabbed a handle, 2 on each side and lifted me off the gurney and carried me on the board to the helicopter. Talk about scary, I thought at any minute they would drop me. Once we got to the helicopter they opened the back area and slide the board headfirst into the tail part of the helicopter. So my head was the only part of me in the cabin. Chest down was in a confined area. My friend was put in the other side. They then put a air mask and head phones on me. So now I am strapped in, in pain, can't communicate and can't move. The flight was about 15-20 minutes to the hospital. I thought I was going to loss it. I prayed harder than I can ever remember and sang primary songs to myself until we landed.

So you can imagine every time I see a helicopter it reminds me of that experience. 
When this opportunity came up, I was determined to have a better experience and I am glad I did. 

These are some of the other planes that we're in there hanger.
they even opened up the 6 passenger private plane so that we could get in and see what it was like.

One Fear faced and gone!!!

Trick or Treat Halloween Home Decor

Halloween IS my favorite holiday. I love all the witches, monsters and fairy's that come out in October. Everywhere you look you see awesome Halloween decorations. I think I have more Halloween decorations then I do Christmas ones. I was so excited to be apart of the 30 days of Halloween Series that Allison Miller from Cupcake Diaries is holding. Come back everyday to check out what awesome Halloween Treat you will get from a different Blogger everyday. There's bound to be something that tickles your fancy.

I decided to post about my fun "Trick or Treat" wood block decoration. I had a lot of fun painting and decorating these. Each piece of wood started off with a base coat of black, purple or orange paint. Then on the trick blocks I added a layer of black & purple scrapbook paper, then another layer over that using drywall tape painted black, the or is purple and then the treat was covered in cheese cloth and then dabbed with a black ink pad. then to finish them off I added little bling stones on each letter.

When using them in your home you could display them a couple different way.

  •  My photo's show me using orange Easter grass placed around the base of the letters
  • You could use a cupcake stand and place each word on a different tier and then drape: cheese cloth, Easter grass, streamers, etc. around the words and up and down the stand
  • You could hang them on the wall with that white tacky stuff.
  • You could glue them to the front of a door wreath.
there are lots of possibilities with wood projects. Think outside the box.

Happy Halloween Everyone!!!
