Bunk Bed Find on Craigslist!

I am sooooo excited with a win from Craigslist! Time for another room redo! My youngest is growing up and has grown out of his crib. Found a great bunk bed on Craigslist! Oh the ladder is on top so our boys don't play on it right now. We'll see what I come up with for bedding and a room redo! Can't wait!

Motivated To Organize!

Organized is what I strive for but I'm not quite there yet. Definitely working on it though! I've been traveling some the past few weeks and this past weekend got to spend some time with some really close friends I hadn't seen in a while. What a nice weekend!

Anyhow I am trying to get organized and the motivator this time is TOYS! We have TOYS galore. I've worked to get them sorted and organized and will share what type of organization system I used. I'm really working to have a place for everything in the house. We'll see how it turns out! 

Long Lost Blog Images

If you go back to any of my earlier posts you'll see most of my images are missing. Technical issues have caused all my image links to disappear so I'll be taking time to relink all of my blog images. Bummer but hope you can bear with me. Hope you have a great week and we'll talk soon!

Cheapo Play Room Wall Art

I looked at my last post and can't believe it is nearing a month since I've been on here. Not intentional. Last night I sat and watched a new show on TV with my feet in a foot massage thingy to dull the aches from keeping up with them at the pool. It's all good though! How is your summer going? I hope you are having a great summer!

Below is a little addition I made to the play room. I picked up 5 small wooden painted cars at Michael's for about a quarter a piece and hung them on the wall with 3M wall hangers. Super cheap and easy. They don't have to be perfect or symmetrical and something like this can be a simple addition to a child's room. Happy summer. Gotta try and get to the pool today before it rains!

Summer Projects Started - 6-9-13

How are you? Is school out where you are? It's out here and I can't believe how fast the year went. I feel a little bad for my kids because the first official days of summer break I've been trying to get lots of sleep to get over strep. Things have been different - the past several months my family has been thrown some serious curve balls and we're all trying to keep moving and simply embrace change.

Today was more productive. I finally got off my rump (yay for more energy. i hate being sick and laying around) and worked on our exterior door knobs, locks and hinges. I am so excited to have made some progress. The door knobs have been sitting in a closet for over a YEAR and the hinges for MONTHS. I'm not sure why it has taken so long to motivate but I'm glad I finally did. Little things like drilling new holes to fit the hinges is so much fun when I get into it. The power drill was put to use today! Went out to Lowe's today and got some new drill bits and sure used them. I still have to replace the front door hardware and two hinges to the back door so everything matches and we don't have brassy gold glaring back at us!

I'm going to try and do a project a day and I'll let you know how it goes. What are you doing with your summer? What are your plans around your house?


I feel a little numb tonight. Well A LOT numb. HOLY COW! How many of you watch Game of Thrones??? There really isn't much that I like to watch on TV besides HG TV(go figure!) but my hubs and father both read this series and I got hooked on the HBO series as soon as I was introduced to the first episode. It's jam-packed with action and drama and unfortunately has the most shock factor of any story I have heard about. Tonight I cried. I'm still sad, sniff sniff. Seriously since I haven't read the books I don't know what good could possibly come out of the story and man does it know how to tick me off. I  think all of my favorite characters are going to get killed off. Still it's so intriguing with all of the stories going on at once. I have no idea how the Season Finale will turn out but this unsettling numbness sucks tonight. So sad. Just had to share my opinion of the show. Man!

Looks Like My Site Has Been Spammed OR Hacked

In the process of removing my Wordpress site and transferring back to Blogger, I have lost my links for a lot of posts. I am working to fix this but it will take some time. In the mean time someone has put ads throughout my posts. Just wanted to let you know where I stand. Can't wait to get some summer projects done to share with you. Happy Friday!
