Pinterest Party Friday #116


Happy Friday everyone!!! The first half of this week we had great beautiful weather, and I got the house all cleaned up. Unfortunately, the plague hit here on Wednesday, and it has been rough going ever since. My whole body aches, stuffy head, and swollen throat. So as you can imagine, all of my productivity came to a screeching halt. Hopefully I will be back at it this weekend and can get caught up on some of my projects. On to my favorite pins of the week! … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #115 and Some Dog Troubles


Happy Friday everyone! I'm going to get right down to it:  I'm worried about my dog. A few weeks back, she tore her ACL (a ligament in her back right leg). The vet said to carry her everywhere for 2 weeks and give her pain meds. She seemed to be doing much better, and when we had our vet recheck on Monday he said she looked great. Wednesday night Gracie, was outside chasing Charlie around the yard and everything was fine. Two hours later, she couldn't put any weight on it and … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #114


Happy Friday!!! Today the unnamed child has her last first day of school. She went to school this morning wearing her senior girls shirt, and last night all of the seniors chalked their cars. I honestly have no idea where the time has gone. I swear it was just the other day I was walking her into kindergarten. I just don't normally feel like I'm old enough to have an eighteen year old. This week my brother and sister-in-law's babysitter was unavailable, so I have been watching my 2 year … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #113


Happy Friday everyone!!! Guess what I've been getting ready for this week? The unnamed child has her senior pictures tomorrow! Holy cow! How the heck is it possible that the time has gone so fast that she's old enough to shoot senior pictures? Let me tell you, getting ready for senior pictures has changed a lot since I got it done eons ago. First of all, we had to have a consultation with the photographer to see if we were even a good match; luckily, she didn't have time to know the … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #112


Happy Friday my friends!!! Another busy week as usual. I'm getting ready to paint all of the trim in my hallway from honey oak (which I am so over) to white! So I spent all day yesterday taping things off. Definitely not the fun part. Hopefully I will have all of the painting finished this weekend, and I can show you next week. I also finished a pretty Parisian themed coffee table, and that will be on the blog on Monday. My (almost) 2 year old niece will be hanging out with the unnamed … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #111


Happy Friday everyone!!! I have to say this has not been a very productive week for me. After the Haven Conference I attended last week, I have been exhausted, and all I have wanted to do was sleep. Add into that several doctors appts, and my motivation has been zero. Today I have to go get an MRI of my shoulder and they have to inject the contrast directly into my joint ... so I'm less than excited about that. This weekend I will be back at my projects in full force. I have a coffee table … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party #110 – With Topher Hosting


Happy Friday Everybody!! As most of you know, Shanna is out of town today attending the Haven Blogging Conference in Atlanta.  Since she's away having a great time, I'm taking over her Pinterest Party -- which will be interesting because I'm not that savvy when it comes to Pinterest. So here's how this will work (in my head).  I'll start off with a few DIY pins, and then when I run out of good ones, I'll move on to other "things". Hopefully you're OK with that (if not, please leave a … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #109


Happy Friday everyone!!! Another week has flown by, and I've been trying to finish up some projects before I head to Atlanta next week for a blogging conference. It has been freaky weather here. Yesterday, the unnamed child was able to wear a sweatshirt, but today we are back to sweating it out. Topher, the unnamed child, and our nephew are running in the Glow Run Saturday night, so we are trying to get through a bunch of tomorrow's chores today. The unnamed child has not been training … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #108


Happy Friday my friends!!! Can you believe it's 4th of July weekend? I swear it was just the other day that the unnamed child got out of school for the summer. The kiddo will be off with a friend of hers and her family on the 4th, so Topher and I will be all by our lonesome. We will probably grill out and might have my folks over. Our house is in a good location where we are able to sit out on the back deck and watch the fireworks in several directions. We usually don't stay up too late, … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #107


Happy Friday everyone!!! Do you ever have those weeks where it feels like you've been running your tail off but didn't really get anything accomplished? That was me this week. I had a list of projects a mile long, but I was running around to doctor appts, dentist appts, grocery shopping, and actually making dinners for my family (gasp!). So today I'm buckling down and getting some projects for next week shot, some custom pieces finished, and this weekend I am back to working on a coffee … [Read more...]
