Too many frickin pillows….seriously the pillows are going to take over our house. I was in a desperate need to clean up and declutter this week and these random pillows almost made their way to Goodwill. Instead, I came up with another purpose for them on the front porch. If you don’t have any random pillows laying around…and you want to make some of these for your front porch, check the local garage sales this weekend—I am sure you will find something that will be good enough to recover for the porch.
Hey yall! How was the weekend?? We had a great time doing not much:) It was too hot for me to start pulling out the fall decorations…booooo…. I am so itchin for a crisp morning. We did look at a few open houses on Sunday. Yes, you heard that right….open houses. We are just seeing what might be out there….starting to miss our yard a little—especially with 2 pups running around. Most likely we will stay put…but we are open to possibilities;)
Y’all see Bad Moms movie? I went last night with my fellow bad moms….really funny movie. Lots of laughs and one liners…none of which I can remember today–let alone post here…but look it up on Youtube (after you are done watching today’s video of course:)
Dang… I’m kind of tired of the hot weather! This time of year… around my birthday (#43 on Sunday whoot whoot:)… I start wishing for sweaters and jeans and the crisp fall air. I know we’re probably in for about a month more of Summer…but I’m hoping it fall comes quickly.
I have been busy and my bub’s room this week….loving how it is coming together. To bring you up to speed check out the moodboard for this project for my Teen boy room.
Hey yall! Back to school time in full swing here! Bubs started on Friday and peanut starts on Wednesday. Tomorrow will be the last day that I get up and drive my people to school—wow…hard to believe. They will be taking turns driving each other to school. Helps out that their schools are down the street from each other. It is weird though. When they get their license there is this whole new freedom—not just for them…but for me too. It is nice….but at the same time it is just one more milestone that comes and goes too quickly. They are gaining independence…and that is a good thing. I am happy for them….and just a little sad to see another chapter close—but 95% happy…only a tad sappy:) I keep repeating the mantra…I am here to help them be happy, independent people—and driving is just one more step to them living their own lives…and for that I feel very blessed and grateful.
There used to be this Penny Candy Shop where my Grammie lived…. In the summertime she/my mom and dad would give us a dime and we would ride our bikes and fill up our little bags with 10 Swedish Fish. I’m sure it was her and my mom’s way of maybe getting us out of the house for a little bit. We love that shop. It was called Klem’s Penny Candy Shop in Avalon, New Jersey. I wish they still had stores like that that kids could go in and use a dime for a cheap thrill like 10 Swedish Fish.
