Happy Labor Day everyone!!
I know many of you will be out at the pool or enjoying your last trip to the lake. Today, I have vowed to only work a total of 2 hours!
Gasp! I know!
I worked Saturday and Sunday, so I decided today I’m going to enjoy at least half of the day.
I think the kid talked us into going to see If I Stay. She didn’t have to twist my arm too much — Topher, on the other hand, is not sharing our enthusiasm.
Saturday we grilled out for my dad’s birthday party and watch my little niece toddle all around the house.
Sunday my parents watched her for the afternoon, and the unnamed child and I went over to play with her a little more. Man it’s been a long time since I watched The Jungle Book or Snow White. We watched them on VHS if that tells you how long it’s been since my parents had a grandchild (the last one is my 16 year old).
My creative ADD has been in full swing, because this weekend I was working on a two mirrors, a side table, and two coffee tables.
Sadly, I only completed the one down below.
I found this mirror at a yard sale for $3. [Check it out...]
Happy Pinterest Party Friday!! Wow, this week flew by! Probably because I had deadlines to meet! Today, I am stenciling a coffee table and painting a mirror … so not too bad of a day. We have been eating out all week, so I absolutely have to go to the grocery store because I think […]
Today is Thursday, and where I live that means today is garage sale day. Yes, garage sales are also on Friday and Saturday, but the majority of the sales start on Thursday. That means I wrote this post last night, and as you are reading this, I am probably out making the rounds […]
Happy Monday!! I hope you had a great weekend! We had a fun BBQ over at a friend’s house Friday night. Saturday, we took the pups to get groomed, and then we had a wedding to attend that evening. Thank goodness it wasn’t an outdoor wedding because it was in the triple digits here. Sunday […]
Happy Pinterest Party Friday!!! Do you remember the desk and dresser from hell I was telling you about last week? Yeah, well they continued to torture me again this week. The desk, is finally completed and DebbieDoos is featuring it on her site today. The dresser (my nemesis) is still in the works. It’s going […]
Does it seem like everywhere you go right now, every woman you see is pregnant? It seems like there must be something in the water over in my neck of the woods because I am doing custom nursery projects out the ying yang! (Note to self: Do NOT drink the water). First, congratulations! Second, if […]
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! Saturday was my little niece’s 1st birthday party! I can’t believe it’s already been a year. She had a lemonade stand party, and her mom did an awesome job! I got totally sidetracked when I got there and forgot to take pictures, so hopefully my […]
Happy Pinterest Party Friday!!! Do you ever have those weeks where you feel like you worked your tail off but got nothing accomplished? That was me this week. The unnamed child started school yesterday (she was not thrilled). Monday through Wednesday, we were running around getting her haircut, school clothes, school supplies, etc. Then yesterday […]
My mom and the unnamed child have always had a very close relationship. Sleepovers at mimi’s meant homemade cookies, putting on their swimsuits and getting in the jacuzzi tub while sipping cocktails (orange juice) in champagne glasses, and staying up late watching tv together. Even as a teenager, it hasn’t been uncommon for her to […]
Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! I spent mine working on projects, thinking I would have them all completed by Sunday night … but it seemed like one disaster after another struck. Here it is Tuesday, and none of them are finished yet. On Movie Night, we ended-up watching Divergent (which […]
Happy Friday everyone!! My gosh where did this week go? We got a bit more back to school clothes shopping accomplished, but haven’t bought one thing as far as school supplies go! Although in high school they don’t need as much as the little kids do, so you save money there. The clothes and college […]
