Pinterest Party Friday #103


Happy Friday my friends!! I hope you all had a good week! Right now, we are in the process of deciding if we are going to move. We originally bought the house we have lived in for the last 10 years to get the unnamed child in a good school district. The only problem with it was that with the good school district came high taxes, specials, and our neighborhood has high HOA dues. Now that the kiddo will be graduating in December, we are able to move outside the district where you can get a … [Read more...]

Happy Friday my friends!!! This week sure flew by! I've finally been getting caught-up on some new furniture pieces. Two of them will be finished this weekend, and I will show them to you next week. We will also be finishing spraying some big bookshelves for the basement, and if time allows work on a coffee table that I am building. This is the first piece I am 100% building on my own, so pray that I end up with all of my fingers after this process is over. The unnamed child will be … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #101


Happy Friday everyone!!! It has been raining cats and dogs here this week with about 112% humidity. I have been driving around with a vintage secretary in the back of my SUV for 5 days trying to shoot it for this site. Everyday it has been raining, but yesterday I got a little break, so I will have that to show you on Monday. Can you believe we are already scheduling senior pictures for the unnamed child? If you didn't read yesterday's post, I got a little bit on the personal side and was … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #100


Happy Friday!!!! I've been busy this week working on projects, actually cooking for the first time in forever, and destroying my house for photoshoots. Seriously, it's like an obstacle course trying to get from room to room with displaced furniture and decor everywhere. Topher, the unnamed child, and my cousin are running in the Warrior Dash in Tulsa this weekend. If you're not familiar with what that is, it is one of those races where you scale walls, crawl through mud, and jump over … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #99


Happy Friday everyone!!! This week seemed to fly by! The unnamed child has prom this weekend, and we have been scurrying around getting things ready. Dress altered: check, found earrings: check, nails and toes done: check, spray tan: check. Now we just have to pick up the dress from alterations today, and Saturday will be hair and makeup, and she should be all set. I'll see if I can convince her to let me show you a picture of her all dolled up next week. Since Saturday's Prompalooza will … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #98


Happy Friday everyone!!! It's been beautiful here this week! I am so in love with Spring! All of the flowers are blooming and everything is green again. This weekend I plan on finishing-up a secretary I have been working on forever, and Topher will be spraying some bookshelves that we have had in hoard storage for eons ... if the weather cooperates. The unnamed child is getting last minute things ready for prom next weekend, and next week I will be running around picking-up her dress from … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #97


Happy Friday everyone!!! It has been one long week! I spent most of mine in the hospital this week, still trying to resolve this whole kidney thing. 8,000 IV sticks, and probably a million hospital bills later, we still have no true diagnosis. I'm trying to figure out who to go to next. I'm running a fever, burning up so much I soak through my PJ's, massive fatigue, and pain right where my kidney is.  2 weeks ago, the CAT Scans showed swelling and that my kidney was a little misshapen but now … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #95


Happy Friday everyone! If you have been wondering where I have disappeared to this week, it's been the hospital. I was in and out of the ER Fri-Sunday with the most horrendous kidney pain. I was finally admitted on Monday and ended-up having surgery where they put in a stent. Now it turns out I am having more pain with the stent in and am meeting with my surgeon this afternoon to decide if we are going to remove it, and if so what to do next. So while I've been writhing with pain for the … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #94


Happy Friday guys! We had a couple of nice days over Spring Break this week, but the rest have been cold and rainy. At least this year it didn't snow! We are going prom dress shopping this weekend, and I can already hear my bank account screaming for mercy, but since she will be graduating early next year, this will be her only prom, so at least we will only have to go through this once. Honestly, though, I am excited to help her pick something glitzy out. We are also going to visit my … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #93


Happy Friday everybody!! I have been such a happy person this week with temps in the low 70's. The pups have been taken on multiple walks, I've had a spray paint assembly line going on, and the unnamed child even whipped out the ol' bikini and laid outside in the sun with Charlie. The kiddo has been on the internet non-stop since she was asked to prom on Wednesday. I'm really happy that she's going, but this isn't going to be cheap my friends. Some of these dresses online cost more than my … [Read more...]
