holiday prep ramblings

November 21, 2015

Seems like I was just hunting down the perfect pair of mums for my front porch, and now it’s time to remove my pumpkins and switch my porch out for  Christmas. I’m not ready. I haven’t put any thought into our outdoor Christmas decor but the kids reminded me on this lazy Saturday that we have to test the Christmas lights and asked me a million times  on what day are we going to get our Christmas tree. I mean,…

Six Flags over Georgia Holiday in the Park

I tell you the things we do for our children. I look forward to Fridays as my day to relax before the hustle of the weekend starts. I traded in rest for a fun night in the park at Six Flags over Georgia with my babies. We went for a preview of  “Holiday in the Park.”  I’ll do a more in depth review later in the week, but since you know…..blogging everyday, I’m sharing just a few shots of our…

the real?

the real

I get perplexed at the tizzy people send themselves into ranting about how people who share on blogs and social media only share the good parts of their lives and not the bad. How my thought process is set up, after 36.5 years on this earth I know there is not O N E person walking God’s green earth that hasn’t had some level of difficulty or struggle in their lives. Not O N E. I know this, so what…

For those of you that participate in Elf on the Shelf you know very well how hard it is to keep the shenanigans going throughout the month. From running out of fresh ideas to forgetting to move the elf, the struggle gets real. Thought I would pull together a few ideas to get you started.…

dropcloth curtain

Now that soccer and baseball are over, I slightly have my weekends to myself and this weekend I am going to attack the curtains in my son’s room. I’ve mentioned before that my plans for his room are teetering on a style that is rustic chic. I have decided to try painting stripes on dropcloths. I went to Home Depot today and picked up painter’s tape and one 6X9 dropcloth. I am going to paint them with the same shade…

going gray gracefully?

November 16, 2015

The other day I was in the store and the lady behind me in line jokingly says, ” You know they make dye for that.” I turn around and ask, ” Dye for what?” Her answer? Your hair. My response? Word. But she couldn’t leave it there, she had to go on about how young I am and why would a pretty lady my age want gray hair. My response?  It’s mine and I’m fine with it actually, and gave…

planner planning part I

November 15, 2015

The new year is on its way and I have been doing a ton of research on planners and which one I am going to go with for the new year. Looked at both Erin Condren and Whitney English, was almost certain I was going with Whitney English until I went in Target and spent a whole 30 minutes at the end cap opening and closing and comparing all of the different types of Sugar Paper planners. Mae Bad on…

Banana Republic Sweater

I used to do these types of posts back in the day, not quite sure why I stopped.  This blogging everyday thing can be challenging and since at this time I have nothing poignant or thought provoking to add to the internet I think I’ll just ramble. This time of year is always so difficult for me because it’s time to start cleaning house in the sense of giving folks that have served their season walking papers. I’ve been thinking…
