Sooo, we have been super busy this summer. And now that school is creeping back up slowly, I am trying to get some projects done before it's too late. We are painting the kiddos' rooms. So much fun! I know I would have LOVED to hire someone to paint the inside of our home. But I know myself too well. Once the color got up, I knew I would want to change it. So basically it took me 5 days to decide on the inside color of our home. Finally, Martha Stewart Hemp Rope was the one! I love it. It's seriously the best darn cocoa brown ever. So warm and cozy.
So once that was done (last summer-LOL) of course the rest of the painting gets put on hold due to soccer, skiing, snow, school, school clubs, baseball, softball, swimming...etc. It becomes a nightmare trying to get projects done in our house during the school year. So we had to get the boys room painted and then our sweet daughter's room. Here is the progress of our daughter's room! Pictures of the boys room will be soon to come. Can you guess what color Chayce picked?
GO Hannah! LOL
See how messy I was? My sweet hubby painted everything perfectly! But when I set foot in her room, all chaos starts. LOL Okay I can't wait to show you more pics! Can you see how much I've changed? From all white shabby to some playful new colors? Not too daring but still. Not all white. More pics to come. I can't wait to find some cool vintage antiques to go in these rooms. And start adding all of the artwork to Chayce's walls. :) OOOH I did repaint her computer chair...an old vintage wooden chair...cherry red! :)
Here is a picture of what we have been doing alot lately. :) I'll be back soon! :)
to share...our t-ball and softball season has started. Of course this is so much fun but again means mommy and daddy's schedule gets collided with other things. :) Gotta love that though. Anyone else feeling the craziness too? It's always fun though to catch up with other mommies and see how they are doing.
...and I realized...I DID NOT TAKE enough pictures this summer! LOL Too much time playing and enjoying all the fun activities. Oh well. I guess I'll haul my big camera everywhere now again. I am SICK with a bad cold..ick! No fun and yet working and driving kids all over town...so apparently it's not the flu or anything. But I wanted to share with you what the AMAZING Lanne has done! Yet again she rocked another action. I know she made one for super miss shari b and sent me one as well! All I did was hit "play" in Photoshop and my pictures got this awesome rounded corner with logo popped on them! So I just sat here enjoying my diet coke and wallah...instant ready to go blog photo. Amazing eh? She showed me Shari's...it is way cute too. But wowness! I love this girl. She just rocks these tools and makes my life so much easier.
Lanne's AWESOME new TEXTURES that are in the shoppe! I swear I can't get enough of her action that comes with them! Even with any texture. It simply ROCKS and makes this go so much faster! :) We took the kiddies to a carnival the other day. :) They loved the rides...so funny to hear them giggle on every one! :) Here's how I played with them! The first one was made using Lanne's Mirror Mirror Pack! :)
K toodles! Have more swim lessons for the next few weeks and then soccer! :) Yeah!
Wow! That was about 2 weeks of being so sick! I've never been that sick in my whole life. Not even when I had the chix pox in high school. Turns out all five of us got that nasty Flu!!! The one that lasts a few weeks. It was so narley! Thankfully the doctor gave us antibiotics to help us all out. And even though I still sound like I'm a smoker (Lol..sooo not) I'm feeling much better. Whew!
Anyways, before we all got sick, we visited this awesome place in the middle of nowhere. My favorite place we visited when I was little. It's called 'cowboy town' by the kids. And a fun place to catch up on some history. Here's a few pics. If you kinda wonder why most of the alphas at the shoppe are westerny, then this might explain why. Have a super weekend!
Oh my! I hate chickens! LOL And I hate kitchen clocks! Don't ask my why. I just don't like them! LOL And this morning when the boys and I hit a few shoppes, Matt saw this clock. And kept saying"Mommy, that's a Cuckoo clock". I'm like "not really Mattie but it's a chicken". Anyways, we were in the store for awhile. Matt kept going back to this watching the pendulum swing back and forth. He became more and more intrigued watching it and kept commenting on how neat it was. And mommy is such a softy...it came home with us. It's in the kitchen where Mattie can see it all the time and for sure he has commented on this new Cuckoo clock near the dining room table where we eat all our meals. LOL I mean seriously, how could I NOT get it? LOL
Just also wanted to share a few things the QUEENS have done at the site.
Also, Amaaaaazing Kayla has a KILLER new video tutorial! OMG! She just ROCKS at explaining this confusing stuff! I tell ya I might try one myself but again might confuse you all! LOL I have taught my girlfriends here and in California and I still don't think they get it! LOL See how bad I am. But Kayla..TOOO AWESOME for words! Love this girl! And she is fabulous at teaching! So go lookie here!!!!! Check out her blog and upcoming classes in Utah!
K soooo hoping to scoot and go hit a few more shoppes! Am taking out the Shabby in Chic in my office space sooooo, hoping to find some new inspiration around! Re-decorating work space? Sooo much fun! Have a great weekend!
Thanks to Sarah and Gina...now I LOOOVE these! And I got this
to keep them warm and toasty and yummy!
Seriously, I rarely light candles but this was perfect! And wow the shabby cottage smells so warm and cozy!
Okay so WHEW! Thank you so much for your sweet emails and comments and posts about this new kit. I had no idea that the time I released it, that paypal would be totally down! I'm SOOO SORRY and was sooo bummed so many of you had to wait. Thankfully, adding the Google Checkout really helped and you all managed to grab the kit. But today, hooooray, paypal is back up and running and all is fine. Whew! I hate when these things happen..really..barely slept since I really had no idea what to do. And while on the phone with Paypal and E-Junkie, I was so glad to know it was 100% Paypal error. So, glad that's over! :) Truly the people over at E-Junkie totally rule! Robin is the most intelligent developer I have ever talked to. And if any of you have the need to sell something, anything, on a blog or whatever, go run to them and use their service. It just ROCKS!
Today was a FULL day for us. We headed to the local Pumpkin Festival. The kids had so much fun picking out pumpkins, petting mini ponies, getting faces painted and more. They really love this kinda thing. And then after wards, we attended our first Civil War Re-enactment. WOW! Chayce was whining saying "this is not going to be fun". LOL Once we got there and saw everyone in uniform, she was kinda wowed. And then seeing the horses, the flags and listening to what these people said about our history, was really cool. All three of them loved this! And of course had to get a pic of a cute little dude solder with his bayonet.
So today we got to travel to my favorite store ever...THIS ONE! My baby stopped working a few days ago! UGHH! Hate when things just DIE! And these computers don't really die that often. So I take it in and the Magic Man takes a look at it. Tries a few things on it...nothing. I sit there at the Genius Counter thinking I am leaving it here at the computer hospital so it can be repaired with love and attention. And while I was looking around drooling at these and these, the magic man reappeared telling me that my baby works perfectly now. Come to find out...Little Miss Shabby had reinstalled her extra ram incorrectly. WHAT? LOL I followed the directions completely. But....did not PUSH IT IN hard enough to snap it into place! Soooo, thus my baby wouldn't turn on. Crazy me! Next time I order more RAM, I'm taking it in for the magic men to do it. Now it works perfect again! Hoooray!
Then it was off to shop here, here and here. THIS is one RADICAL store! Chris LOVED it. He loves to fish and tie his own flies..so this store really rocked for him. Then before we left we made a coffee run here for a Pumpkin Spice Latte and Caramel Machiatto! Whoa Deann! :)
Okay so I'm heading off to la la land! Hope you all have a gorgeous weekend!
...Cuz we were playing around with the camera this weekend. :) I snapped the 50mm back on for some fun. Wow it makes it light. :) Anyways, who would have thought you couldn't take a pic of yourself with this lens? LOL Ahhh ha! Just playing! Besides having a small lens on for now means a lighter load in my hand. Have a great day guys!
