The end of summer is quickly approaching and I can’t help but feel a little bit sad about that. I notice the days growing shorter and the nights becoming cooler.
I know that our evenings sitting on the porch will soon draw to and end.
We have already enjoyed our final afternoons spent at the pool. (more…)
Oh yes its true. I have decorating ADD and I am pretty certain it drives my husband batty. We have been in our house for 6 months now and I have yet to get curtains or anything decoration wise hung on our living room, master bedroom or sissy’s bedroom walls. Yeah, that’s how I roll. So what was my latest re-do? Well the kitchen and breakfast nook of course!
When I told my husband I needed some more color in the kitchen and I was thinking about making new curtains, he wasn’t really amused but I decided it had to be done.
So I loaded the kids up and marched (drove) off to the mall with some of my birthday money in hand and bought some pretty fabric.
Once the kids were down for naps, I pulled together all of my supplies:
When I find something that I L-O-V-E, I tend to go a smidge bit crazy overboard with whatever it is. Some girls love shoes. Some love clothes or jewelry (I love all those things too). But with how much I enjoy entertaining, I get so giddy excited when I find some wonderful piece of service ware and even more so if it has a great price tag.
I’m not quite sure how late I am in jumping onto this diy train, but have you seen these pretties????
Hello friends! It has been all too long since I have taken the time to sit down and write a post. It’s partly the crazy busyness of the day to day things going on with life and well, lets be honest, a lot of laziness. If you do have or have had little ones, you know what I mean. When I put the kids down at night, the last thing I have been finding the energy to do is use my brain and write a post. But after being asked by some sweet friends that read my rantings and just missing my bloggy friends, I decided to make it more of a priority. So I promise to try and post at least twice a week.

Last week Jay had made up his mind that this was the weekend the shrubs out front HAD TO GO!!! We knew when we looked at the house and put our offer in that they wouldn’t be around for very long but had to idea how to go about getting them out. It was going to be a fast, cheap way to update the house immediately and completely change the curb appeal.
