Nothin' to do with paint!

I am taking a much needed break from my crazy kitchen. This little HUGE project has taught me to think before you do something CRAZY.

I decided to Mod Podge my girls little table. I was going to paint it, but my friend "paint" and I have been spending too much time together.  This is the first thing in a long time that I have finished in under a day.


Cadbury Eggs will make anything beautiful!





Shea had this great idea to take all of our scraps and Mod Podge her magnet board.  She really enjoyed it...a little too much.  I hope I don't find her using it on anything else!

My Baby is 5!

My baby Shea just turned 5, and all I can say is...WHAT!  It was just like yesterday that I held my 6lb 2oz baby girl.  She has been a blessing in our lives since she was born.  Shea always has a smile or a giggle to share with those around her.  She can make a friend where ever she goes. I am honored to be your mother.  I love you little Shea Shea.  I hope the next 5 years don't pass by as fast.  Happy Birthday!

While we wait for the paint to dry...


While I get caught up on my kitchen cabinet redo, I want to post my jars.  I have had these for years but decided to add a little something to them.  I don't have a lot of storage so I have to sometimes make the food the decor.  A little bit of advice though....never put chocolate in them...you'll be sorry!

Distance makes the heart grow fonder

Distance makes the heart grow fonder.  I went to Utah on the 4th for a week with my kids.  My husband had to stay home because of work. Anyway 1 hour after I left  I recieved a call from my husband.  He was wondering if I put Miracle Whip or Mayo on his sandwich.  Right then I knew I would be missed.  
My husband was so excited to see us on Thursday. He cleaned the house and purchased flowers, my favorite chocolate and a card for me.  We started home and about an hour into the drive the weather forced us to turn back.   I called my husband to tell him we wouldn't be coming home that day.  His voice was very sad as he said "well I guess it's better to be safe than sorry".   Finally, two days later we came home.  My husband is incredible. He loves me for me and puts his family first.  So Happy Valentine's Day Tanner and to my three wonderful children.  My heart grows fonder everyday, some more than others! Hahaha

P.S.  He had to buy the card he said. It must of spoke to him or something.


UTAH

All of the grandkids
We had a blast in Utah though.  We were able to spend time with Xavier and  the rest of the family.  We really enjoyed our time there.  The only part that is hard is seeing my son so sad to leave.  He is still wanting to move back.  He has made some good friends there.

Mad Makeover Continues...

Here are a couple of pictures of the cabinets.  We I'm only a third of the way done (the glass is half-full though).  I want the maddness to be over.  Maybe by taking the kids on a little trip to Grandma and Grandpa's house will give us all a much needed break.

The shelves are my favorite part.  It was just waisted space and so my husband cut into the cabinet wall.  Now I have a space for my phone book. ( thanks honey!)
