Happy Pinterest Party Friday everyone!!! This week flew by!
Only five days left of school. The unnamed child and I are so ready for summer!
I went to citywide yard sales yesterday, and I found some goodies! Three end tables, a fabulous old dresser, and two great, carved mirrors. I might have to hit a few more sales on Saturday.
I will be painting all weekend and getting ready for my garage sale next week! More on that later…
On to this week’s pins!
I’m so excited to share my vintage grey dresser makeover with you! But first, let me tell you a bit about my day.
It started with a heated discussion with the unnamed child. She wanted to wear a pair of shorts to school that she had worn last summer. The only problem was that she had grown, and the shorts had not. Yes, I did understand that they went perfectly with her shirt. But they were just a little too hoochy, and she just didn’t see that.
After 20 minutes of “discussing” she finally changed, and I got to hear lots of stomping around … and the car door happened to shut just a little too loudly when I dropped her off (probably just the wind).
We have had battles over her wardrobe since she was three years old. I remember her getting ready for kindergarten one day, and she had these wooden clogs that she was obsessed with. She had to wear them to school, and we fought and fought over them, and I kept telling her they weren’t appropriate for school. In the end, I had to go to work and she won out.
Every year for Mother’s Day, Topher makes me breakfast. This year he surprised me with Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls!
These were so good!
Since I didn’t make them, I am going to turn it over to Topher to let you know how to bake these babies. Continue reading
Remember when I said I was going to start going back to the gym again? Well … I have been, which is a start — but just not as often as I should. With summer right around the corner, I have got to kick it into gear, people!
Yesterday, I had to drive one of my unnamed child’s friends home from school, and we had to go down a very bumpy dirt road. I glanced down at my legs, and the amount of jiggling that was resonating from them was mortifying — like two jello-filled water balloons sloshing around in my driver’s seat. In fact, I was so distracted, I did a terrible job avoiding all the ruts — which, of course, only compounded the problem…
That ride disturbed me enough that I drove my car straight to the gym.
I’ve written, on more than one occasion, about how I am a complete germ-o-phobe, so the gym is kind of my worst nightmare as far as that goes. I can not stand touching the same weight machine handles that 147 other people have already touched already.
Today kind of pushed me over the edge though.
Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had great Mother’s Day’s.
Topher and I made a big brunch here, and my mom and dad, and brother and sister-in-law all came over. We had jalapeño and feta egg casserole, Topher made caramel apple cinnamon rolls from scratch, fruit, toast, bacon, and my sister-in-law made yummy muffins.
Needless to say, we all ate too much.
Today’s project is what we used as our Menu board yesterday: a cute, white washed chalkboard.
Happy Mother’s Day everyone!!! I am so lucky to have an amazing mother, and to be a mother to such a wonderful daughter (no matter how many times she may roll her eyes at me these days).
I hope you all get to relax and let others pamper you today! Continue reading
Happy Pinterest Party Friday everyone!!!
First of all let me apologize for being a sucky blogger this week guys. I over did it last weekend and tweaked my back — which meant no projects ready for the first half of the week.
Then once I was healed, my WordPress tweaked its back(bone) for a couple of days after an update went bad. Topher now has us back up and running again … thank goodness.
Next week will be filled with some of this week‘s fun projects I couldn’t show you — including the fun gift I am making for my mom!
Speaking of gifts for mom … what are you all doing for Mother’s Day? I am hosting brunch at my house for my Mom and Dad and brother and sister-in-law. Next week, we will try meeting up to have dinner with my mother-in-law.
On to this week’s favorite pin’s!

Yesterday I wrote that I would have a new project for you today. It turns out I’m a liar.
After bending down painting the entire weekend, I tweaked my neck and back. I am in a pretty immense amount of pain right now, and I might not be able to share a project with you today, so instead, I thought I would share a few of my favorite things (cue Julie Andrews).
Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend!
I was going to city-wide yard sales Saturday, but with the rain and freezing temperatures, we decided to pass.
I did, however, take the fur babies to get groomed … and that was a disaster. Topher and I had all three of them freaking-out in the car while the rain was pouring on us.
Gracie freaked out so much she pooped in the back of the car (my car, too), and then in frantic pacing managed to walk through it! Poop paw prints all over my car, and the smell was making us literally gag!
So we pulled over and in the torrential rain, and Topher tried to clean up the dog and the car. By the time we got to the groomer’s, we looked like drowned rats and smelled like … well, you know what.
