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...]

Pinterest Party Friday #106


Happy Friday everyone!!! The last few weeks have been a bit of a roller coaster ride for us. Let me back up for a minute. For the last year, we had held off doing any real home improvements because we thought we were going to move this coming fall. Anyone who knows me knows that this made me a crazy person. Keeping everything the same because we didn't want to do any projects that prospective buyers might not like -- such as painting the mantel, painting the kitchen cabinets, bold paint … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #105


Happy Friday guys! This has been a week full of projects. Getting the house ready for my Balsam Hill Welcome Home Tour; Starting and finishing my French Script Ivory Painted End Table; Starting and finishing a vintage dresser that I will be showing you on Monday; and pulling everything out of my painting studio to replace the flooring and reorganizing it. That last task was not for the faint of heart my friends. You have no idea how much paint and painting paraphernalia I had in … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #104


Happy Friday everyone!!! It was the first week of summer vacation for the unnamed child, and we both were lovin' every minute of it. We stay up late watching movies and get to sleep-in in the mornings.  We watched two of the Harry Potter series and the Sex in the City movie. Topher and I started to binge watching State of Affairs, and it's been good so far. The unnamed child's air conditioner went out in her car, so she's been working extra shifts to be able to get that sucker repaired … [Read more...]

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...]
