A little background on why I named this blog what I did.

I should probably do a little explaining on my title of this blog. First my last name is White. Therefore I live in the "White House." Living in the "White House" makes me the 1st Lady. My physical address says I live in Westwood Ca. (not the one by Los Angeles) but a little mountain town in Northeastern Ca. However I really live in a section out of Westwood known as Pinetown. With all the joking going on between my friends, I inevitably became Pinetowns 1st Lady living in the "White House." With all that said, this is just going to be a more personal blog of my life here in Westwood/Pinetown. My family and friends being a big part of it.
Originally I really wanted to take a picture a day for one year and post it on this blog. Perhaps like a photo diary. My life though is quite quiet and perhaps is not photo worthy for a picture a day but I plan on trying. So why not hop in and take a ride with me through little mountain town U.S.A. You may just love it as much as I do!

Yarn Shopping on my Anniversary Day 48

Srince Dave was sleeping up in the room, I went downstairs to do a little gambling, and I do mean little. I am not a gambler . There's just something about throwing money in a machine and not getting a gallon of milk or tomorrow nights dinner or the electricity paid that keeps me from feeding these money hungry machines much money. I did although have a $20.00 on me with the intent of feeding a machine. I got a little lucky and won (3) $33.00 jackpots in a row on (3) $1.80 bets. I took my $99.00 winnings and ran with it, right across the street from our room.
Above is the Atlantis from JoAnns. Even sideways it is a beautiful building. So yarn shopping is what I did on my actual Anniversary!

Since we got there I had noticed a JoAnns store. JoAnns is a store that sells material, and notions and stuff like that. I had never been in one but always wanted to go. I am a avid crocheter and I am almost done with a bedspread I have been crocheting and I was hoping to find a couple more skeins I need. I was lucky as they did have what I was looking for with a whole lot more. I got some beautiful yarn out of this store. I truly felt like a real winner today. It is nice to physically hold an item from a win from a money hungry machine.

I did not forget my husband on his birthday today, I wrote Happy Birthday to him with soap on the bathroom mirror as he was sleeping! LOL!!!

View Larger Map This is where I live. To the right of Westwood barely visible is the little section I live in called Pinetown. We have probably 150 to 200 people for our population. Westwood on the other hand is HUGE by comparison with a population of around 2000!
