Show and Tell Monday- Finally!

A couple of months ago, I shared my Fredericksburg find and my plans for it.

Well.... FINALLY! I cleaned that bad boy up and sat it in my living room. I am LOVING it and am so glad to finally have it in the house!

I didn't do much work to it. I actually liked the originality and uniqueness of it!

I wiped it all over with a wet wash cloth.

Then sprayed a clear coat of Polyurethane over it.

And that was it! Now it's my fun coffee table. Jared still isn't satisfied. He wants something he can put his feet on and eat on. No problem for me, I'll just keep looking for something else and put this pretty in another spot!

Happy Monday Y'all! Have a great week!

I am so glad it is FRIDAY!

This week went by really slow for me.

Heather and I failed at our WIWW post this week.

We had every intention on doing it and then the next thing we know it's Wednesday morning.

Oh, well maybe next week.

Do any of you use Picnik???

Have you heard that they are shutting down the site in the middle of April?

That make us so sad!

I am not sure what we are going to use now?

What editing programs do you use?

We need something easy and quick like Picnik.

Last Saturday night Adam was fixing the lock on our front door and this little one put his hat on and got my keys like he was going somewhere.

It was the cutest thing.

It surprised me that he could actually get the hat on.

He is so smart.

That same night our neighbors cat wondered to our house and hung out on our front porch.

Ace got a big kick out of that.

And set there playing with it.

That is probably as close as he will ever get to a cat.

This momma is not a cat person.

A couple of weeks ago Austin tried out for a play at his school and he got the lead role.

We are so proud of him.

He will be the “King” in The King and I this spring.

April sent me this pic of Ace last Saturday while he was there.

He thought this little tray was neat.

Jayden was nice and let him use it.

I love getting pics of the kiddos when they are not with me.

Puts a smile on my face.

Aydrie had to give up the high chair to her little brother.

But she is now big enough to sit in a chair at the table.

And she does really well now.

She likes sitting at the table like a big girl!

Yesterday morning I was having a bad morning.

I got up a little late.

I was having a bad hair day.

I left the house in a bad mood.

Then I get a text from Adam telling me to have a good day with this pic.

And my day got better.

Have a great weekend!!

Feels like Spring

The weather this past weekend was PERFECT.

It felt like spring and it got me really wishing it was.

Saturday we started out our day with a little visitor.

Derek and Miss Lillie came over for a while and we got to visit and play with her.

Aydrie and Ace had fun playing with her.

Since it felt like spring we decided to get some yard work done.

We took Aydrie and Ace to April's so Adam and I could do some stuff around the house.

Not to fun but if felt good to get some things marked off my to do list.

I tried to get a pic of these two before we left and this is what I got.

Ace was much to busy to take a pic.

We got everything done that we needed to so Saturday night we enjoyed laying around.

I spent the night catching up on my shows and watched a life time movie.

The perfect Saturday night!

Sunday we got up bright and early, ate breakfast, and got to work on our laundry room.

Another project that we needed to get done.

We cleared out the laundry room and my brother and dad came over and helped us put the new tile down.

It turned out so good and it is so much nicer then the carpet that was in there.

A big thanks to my dad and brother for helping us!

The spring like weather didn't last long it has been cold and rainy the last couple of days.

Oh, well it was nice while it lasted.

Fall Pics

I finally convinced Adam we needed a new family picture.

He really didn’t understand because we had taken a family picture at the beach just this past summer.

So, off to Heather and Jared’s we went.

We took these on a Sunday morning in November and it only took about an hour.

We got lots of good shots and it was hard for me to pick the ones to share.

So here they are.

We used some for our Christmas card this year which and I am just now getting around to posting them.

We got some great shots...thanks to my sister!

Friday Randoms

Happy Friday!!

It's time for the weekend! Yay!

Heather and I have been talking about starting What I Wore Wednesday again and I think we are actually going to do it next week.

I had gotten out of the habit of taking pictures and we just stopped.

I liked when I did it because it made me really think about what to wear and I loved getting ideas from all the other girls.

So, be looking for that next week...hopefully.

Have you heard who the next bachelorette is???'s Emily Maynard.

She is the one that Brad picked last season and they broke up last summer so now it's her turn to try and find the one. Ha!

And yes I will be watching it.

I am hooked on the Bachelor/Bachelorette.

Do you watch Lifetime?? 

I love me a Lifetime movie!

Saturday there is a new movie premiering.....Drew Petterson: Untouchable.

It is based on a true story.

So, guess what I will be doing Saturday night??

That is after it is done recording on my DVR.  ;)

This week we made cookie brownies. 

They taste a lot better than what they look

If you haven't made these have good!

Last Sunday morning I got up and cleaned the house.

I was dusting and this little boy wanted to help out.

He was so cute.

He would just follow me around.

Please pay no attention to the dust on that's gone I promise.

While we were cleaning this little girl was playing.

She loves to play with the balls.

I snatched up these cute shoes for Aydrie from The Children's Place.

They were on clearance and I just couldn't pass them up.

We are loving these glitter shoes!

Ace has been having lots of picnics this week.

He just loves this toy.

I just have to keep an eye on him when he is playing with it so he doesn't loose any of the pieces.

I am so particular about their toys.

I have to keep all the pieces together and if we loose a piece we must find it...asap.

I guess you can say I am a little ocd.

Last week I discovered the spicy ketchup at Whataburger.

You have got to try this stuff!

They say they are only offering it for a limited time only but I am hoping they keep it around.

I love it!

Have a great weekend!
