Good ole pinterest

I've been on a mission over the last few weeks to complete a few "to do's" on my pinterest list!  Obviously since Valentine's day is coming up they got priority on the list :-)  I am obsessed with my yarn hearts!  They are my fave, but I am also loving my framed hearts {top picture}.  I have one more valentine project up my sleeve for this weekend!  I'll be sure to post on Monday!

Birthday Invitations

Payten's Birthday invitations are all mailed out!  She insisted on a bowling party this year.  So the theme is "bowling"!  She is super excited!  I can't wait to see all the kiddies bowl.  Should be super cute!

Our weekend

Another weekend with not many plans.  I am loving weekends like this!  I better enjoy them while I can because February is a busy month for us!

Saturday morning we worked on our foyer project... its almost finish!  New monogram is ordered and pictures to fill the frames and then it'll finally be finished... woo hoo!

Yesterday the girls got celebrate Colby's 5th birthday with her!  They had a blast!  It was super warm yesterday, crazy for January but that's Florida for ya!

Better scheduling...

I need to remind myself next year not to schedule all of the girls activities in the first part of the week.  Literally by Wednesday morning it feels like Friday because I have ran around town like a crazy woman for two days straight!  Although then its nice to have it out of the way and finish off the week at a more calm pace... well until soccer starts in two weeks.  Then our Thursday nights will be busy too!  Thank goodness that's only for 8 weeks though, so that's cake!  The dance season is what gets me... 10 months!!!  I am thinking the girls will need a mental health day soon, or more like I will :-)

I've been running around to gather birthday party items for Payten's party.  I am trying to have everything done before my surgery that way if recovery is worse I am prepared and not having to send my husband to the store a million times, haha.  I think I almost have everything.  Although I am sure once the RSVP's start coming in I'll need more goody bag things.  Speaking of, invitations are scheduled to go out early next week!  I need to get addressing them this week.

I am so excited that my Storage Hall Tree has been shipped!  We've had ours for over 7 years so its time for a new one!  Of course now I need to order a new monogram for over the top of it.  Trying to decide if I want the same one I have or go with another one.

 This is our current monogram...

These are some other options... 

 For this one instead of the names, I would add Est. 2006

Lazy weekend!

It's was a nice lazy weekend... well maybe not lazy but low key :-).  Saturday the girls and I enjoyed a "girls day" of shopping!  There were some really good sales.  Even the hubby made out in our shopping trip!
The rest of the weekend we hung home.  Accomplished a few small projects around the house but most of all we enjoyed some down time.  It's nice sometimes not to have to be any particular place at a specific time!  February is a crazy month for us so its been nice to have a few weekends this month to be low key.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!  Happy Monday!

Crazy week!

What a crazy week this has been!  TGIF!!!  I am so ready for the weekend!  We have no plans all weekend, so excited!  I am hoping to sleep in {ya know until like 7:30a/8a, LOL}... and maybe even accomplish some house projects too!  The next couple of weeks will be busy so I am trying to accomplish as much as I can around the house before it'll be put to the back burner for a while.

It's gymbuck redemption week this week!  Started Wednesday and usually I have already ordered and all my gymbucks are used but this time I am having the hardest time deciding.  The girls really don't need anymore winter stuff and since the spring line is still full price I am having a hard time deciding.  There are a few super cute bathing suits that the girls really like so those are a must!

Hope everyone had a good week!  Happy Friday!

Rest of the weekend

I had all intentions of posting yesterday but what a day I had!  It started out at the surgeons office to confirm whether or not I need to have surgery.  Unfortunately I do :-(  The recovery shouldn't be too bad, I am just more worried about the anesthesia, I hate that part, but everything will be okay.  After I got home, my husband went to the doctor because he wasn't feeling good all weekend, after an ultrasound at the hospital if confirmed he has a bad infection.  Thank goodness after some meds he will be okay.  He definitely had me worried!

I did get several little projects accomplished over the weekend which was nice.  These were things that have been on a "to do" list for 6+ months!  Ironed 5 curtain panels, hung a collage frame in my room, prints in Cam's room, finished the Valentine decorations, and even did some organizing!  I love weekends were I can actually get some things accomplished!

Toy Closet (Now just need labels)

TGIF more then ever this week... this is my first 5 day work week in almost 6 weeks.  So lets just say its been a long one!  Plus throw in dance class started back for the girls this week as well, along with back to the gym, and juggling the hubby's busy schedule.

I am looking forward to tonight's Girls Bunco Night!  Yummy drinks, delicious, great laughs, good friends... great way to end the week!

We don't have too much planned this weekend so it should be a fun/relaxing weekend!  Love those!  Happy Friday!!

New Year = New Projects

It seems like once the New Year hits I get into house project mode.  All ideas are brewing through my head.  Pinterest definitely doesn't help.  I found this one photo gallery display that I LOVE!  Now I am determined to start this in my living room!  Isn't this awesome?! {this is from TatersandJello}

I've always wanted "barn yard" looking garage doors.  What a great idea and its less then $10 to do!  

Love how this bathroom mirror is framed out.... love this idea for the guest bathroom just in white!
I've been eyeing this idea for the bookcase in my office.  Looks like I'll be at Joann's this weekend for Fabric!
