Our Day

Hey ya'll! Hope your week has been a good one. Oldest was sicko for all of Monday but then woke up on Tuesday just fine and dandy! I was sooo thankful! We did not do much this week outside of the home but I was able to start on a few projects around the house.
WARNING: Bad Phone Pics Ahead!

This is the Windsor bench in our dining room I purchased last year before we moved back to TX. It was unfinished and needed some spindle repair. Thought I fixed it but still a bit wobbly. Anybody know where I can buy a spindle? This is the 5th layer of paint on it. My goal is to make it look old farmhouse looking. I was actually able to complete it today due to current events that I will get to later. I will take a completed pic once it is dry and back in its spot.

The bench project led me to begin this project. I have been fiddling with paint colors for in the dinning room since October and finally took the plunge. I started it at 9:30 p.m. and completed it at 2:00 a.m. after placing everything back in its spot and on the wall. I have a thing about seeing things finished all the way. I would not have been able to sleep without seeing it all put together.
At 3:00 a.m. after I was able to take a much needed bath Littliest woke up hungry.

This is what we have been doing today. He was in NO WAY hungry. He decided it was his turn to have a barf fest! Strange how it happened almost exactly at the same time of morning for both of them. I thought we were over it since it had been three days but guess I was wrong. I was awake for over 24 hours straight until I was able to catch a nice 2 hour nap after dinner which is how I have energy for this here post.

Today has also been full of this which caused a slight panic attack on my part probably due to the lack of sleep. It has been raining non stop since well 3 a.m. thanx to hurricane Alex! This is as full as the culvert behind our house has ever been and I called The Hubster in tears. In reality it still has 10 feet more to go before we have any worries and the rain is tapering off. Still a scary thing to think about though!

One last note, I have had time to day dream this week about my sewing/craft room. I have been dreaming abt what color to paint my room and came across Heather Bailey's craft room. It is to die for and my room one day will be a pink too!! So when I saw this here desk on Craigs I fell in love and know it would be sooo perfect for my room. The gal listed it for $195 and I just for the heck of it offered her $100 and told her how I was wanting it for my sewing room which I have no budget for what so ever. She was super sweet and came back with $145. Told The Hubster and already knew the answer before he said it. The desk is a no go. So unless I can raise enough money over the weekend I must bid her farewell. Anybody need any baby bibs!?Ha! Just joking!;)

Again hope your week has been a good one and sorry for the really BAD pics but under the circumstances it was the best I could do. If I am unable to hop back on this weekend have a wonderful and SAFE 4th of July with family & friends!

Hanging On By A Thread

It is Monday. How do I know that for sure other than of course looking at the calendar you may be asking!? There is nothing like having your kid come into your room at 4 a.m. after you stayed up till 2 am working on orders to have him toss , turn, get out of bed and then barely fall asleep as well as you and then have him five min later barf on your back. Yep that's right TMI here today but that has been my day all day. We are in hour number three of no barfing so that is good but I feel we are not in the clear. I am praying and knocking on wood nobody else gets sick. He has no fever just barf.
We had a great weekend. It was pleasant and all was well. Last night I piddled around in the yard even though it was 97 out and in return had to take my second shower of the day I enjoyed it.

See this guy peeking in the living room window? I think he is a cutie though I know some out there cringe just looking at him. His entire family and extended family seem to be living on our back porch. Maybe they are the reason why the mosquitoes have not been bad yet this year. The cats go INSANE with these little fellas. They spend most of their days running back and fourth trying to get at um. It is pretty funny.

Anyways, I put a lil' flag in the wreath on the front door. Thanx Joy for the suggestion!

Remember how I wanted to bring one of these home in my purse from the beach?

Well I found a miniature version at WalMart a few night ago. They were originally $15 but marked half off for some reason. They were still full price at another WM yesterday so who knows. I am thinking with some miracle grow and love they will get a little bigger. I just love um. I put lil' flags in um and then a solar ball in the middle.

Here is what they look like hanging. I also finally put out my rusty yard decor from Baton Rouge. We are not suppose to have um out but I will just chance it and see if HOA says anything.

I also put my crane out. Ignore the sad looking flowers. They were left overs and actually are getting ready to be replaced with Vincas which is funny cause some how some way there is one Vinca popping up in that bed. No idea where it came from. It is over there by the front of the rocks. This little area needs some work so I can conceal the meter. The jasmine is growing nicely though. I think I may actually get another trellis and plant one next to it so it looks fuller.

I have these iron scrolly things on the shutters which I just love. I did this at our Baton Rouge house as well. Found um at HobLob half off.
So thanx for killing some time with me today! I am sooo trying to stay awake even as I type this. Have a good one ya'll!
