Hey hey…happy FriYay!!! Looking forward to a great weekend…hoping to get the outdoor furniture polished off a bit and enjoy some outdoor time. Love me some vitamin D!

The pups are getting used to one floor living….they see it as an open invitation any time to just come and sit outside our doors….just waiting for the next opportunity to get some love. Since my hubs wakes up at 5:30 everyday…the pups were hearing his alarm and then would proceed to sit outside our door and whine until he would open it. Me no likey…me no likey at all… #notamorningpersonATALL . So I researched some doggie gates and found this awesome tutorial at yellowbrickhome…forwarded to my dad and tada! Doggie gate…with class:) Now, the pups wait for Bill to wake up…and they are NOT waking me up:) winner…

Just purchased about $340 worth of primer and paint for the beach house. We are excited to get started transforming the former storage shed into a rec room/ bunk room for extra beach guest.20160712_200631




My parents are going to be going down in late April to help us. My dad has used a paint sprayer before and so he will be priming and painting the ceiling and walls. So excited!!

Every morning I wake up at the beach….a live feed from Carolina Beach:) Check this out…I have been enjoying a late sunrise over the ocean….

Printing out this list for the 3rd time….we have completed this list as a family at the dinner table when the kids were probably 8…and then again at 12 or so. It is a great conversation starter and allows them to learn some things about you too. The link on the post will allow you to print out your own set and keep it on the table….

I made some of these sweet teacup bird feeders a few weeks ago. We were so excited when some birds started to use it and see it actually worked! It held up great in the cold…until it rained one night….and I found the saucer on the ground….insert really sad face here…boooo. I am going to try again with some white gorilla glue and test those results. I used E6000 the first time…apparently that is not water proof….I will let you know how the gorilla glue holds up:)cleverlyinspired teacup birdfeeder

Have a great weekend friends!
