OMG the craziness of my life has been nothing short of incredible!! I had one of the best summers I could have asked for in a really long time. Im sure you are saying, AWWWWWW good for you! Let me share with you.. It started off a lil rocky with my youngest starting the summer breaking his ARM..
This was what I looked like when I saw his X-Ray
But it got better from there, I started Origami Owl (<click to get to my page), as well as Younique ,(<click to get to my page). We took a road trip to North Carolina, very good possibility we will be relocating in the near future and I just feel I have grown as a person.
This summer was my 40th year on this earth.. YUP..me Im 40! And I love it. Now earlier in the year as you guys know my oldest left for the NAVY, and I was a sad MOMMA, but I got to see him a few times through the months, SKYPE, and text and all that good stuff! Well what I did not know was this, my family was planning a surprise party for me and what my family did not know was my boy was planning a surprise visit! So needless to say on 7/12/14 I walked in to my family yelling surprise ….HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! OMG I was so happy and so surprised..
So ya know I said my hellos and gave out hugs an kisses to everyone and figured, ahhhhhh how great would it have been if both of my boys would be here at the same time. My absolutely most awesome husband says ok lets get some photos before it gets to late and we are all in the pool and drinks start flowing and the camera gets put away. At this point I was like WHATEVER you want me to do, this is so GREAT!!! we get all lined up and WELLLLL guess who comes walking out:
It really was one of the best days of my life..as well as the best summers of well EVER!
Weekend Warriors–are the men and women who decide I want to update my house this weekend and actually do it!! Well I did it.. I have been saying it for months..ya know like everyone else who says yeah im gonna freshen up the paint in this room, but just never get around to it, I made myself have the time!
I have been searching the internet and different sites to find the color I want, I wanted a country kitchen type of look, so I went to Lows on friday night and stopped off in the paint section..WELLLL is that OVERWHELMING OR WHAT!! I had one color in mind and then I saw 12 others that I could do also..ok time to put up the blinders, get the color I need and get the HELL out of there.. JEEEEZ that was a close one I could have spent alotttt of money in there, cause you know I need this and I need that and OMG I CANT LIVE WITHOUT THAT..
So needless to say I went home and with the samples I had and painted it on the side of the cabinets, cause ya know what if I did not like it.. and I did I loved it.. Soo it began, got up sunday morning because saturday I had company and well took everything off the counters and from the tops of the counters and off came the cabinet doors. Section by section, and let me tell you getting the hard wear off sucked..It was so time-consuming but it had to be done..
So this is what our kitchen looked like before the cabinets were done. VERY WHITE!!!
Well with a lil paint and some time you can change the look of the room very drastically it took me all day to paint with a break or two..I mean it was St. Patrick’s Day, but I did it and here is the finished look..
OMG I could stare at it all day long…Really for my first solo project I think I did good!..
