Do you ever sit at Pinterest and just think “Gosh, if only I had all that stuff.” I tend to do that. I love that site, and I wish I had all the money to go to Home Depot, Walmart and all the crafty places to do things.

Pinterest is such an inspiration, and I know I could do it, if only I would stop making excuses and just do it! I know I will feel good about it, because I accomplished it.

Here is some things I wish I could right now!

I am going to be redoing Jade’s room in Lady bugs, so think about Red and White 😀 I think It will be cute in her room!



My style.. Things that I like, hopefully I can get everything to match together,
have complete outfits 🙂 Just maybe one day.

Having makeup that looks fabulous! Don’t you say so?? I think so!

Being able to read motivation or inspirational words, everyday!

Do you think you could get addicted to Pinterest? I know I did!

Living Room Makeover

Living Room Makeover – One piece of furniture at a time 🙂

When I was getting into this, well, when I was thinking about it…
I didn’t think about the heat, nor the time haha!!

I did decide not a flat black, but a semi-gloss black. That way the semi-gloss adds as protection, but the wood still looks nice and not like plastic 🙂

It took me about 3 to 4 hours to do this, and I didn’t even need to sand it. The only reason why it took so long was 90 degree heat + no shade = your insides are melting or cooking away, either one lol!

So, here is my completion, and next time it will be the coffee table. I hope all of you have had a wonderful weekend, but unfortunately the weekend has came to an end, and now our week begins. To me; it is just another day to be smiling about. Have a wonderful Monday my friends.

3-4 hours of work, drowning in sweat and heat.. I think someone should kiss the painter 🙂 (Which, on another hand, Hubby did help me)
~Thank You Hubby~

This Weekend; so far

It has been a clumpy weekend so far.

I went to the Doctor on Friday; got 5 meds I have to take, sometimes 2x a day.
I have allergy medicine to take at night, antibiotics for kidney infection take 2x a day, diet pill, nose spray (take 2x a day), and another one to treat another infection. It is like an ongoing thing. With taking all these at once I seem to be pretty out of it, not like sleepy, but my emotions are at the end. Everything is getting to me.

I worked in my landscaping project yesterday. While I was digging holes to plant my “monkey grass” I noticed the dirt was clumpy and rocky looking. I really didn’t pay attention till I had 15 holes dug and was already trying to plant my grass in the hole. I was sitting down trying to break up the clumpy pieces and it was like trying to break rocks. Husband looked me at me and he was like, “Nice going. You decided to put your flower bed in sandstone dirt.” Well, I continued to try to break up the pieces, trying to find the moisture clumps and failing at everything I grab. I gave up after it was taking me 10 minutes to plant one batch of grass. I walked away from it, seeing my project was draining away. It is at these times where you start asking yourself why everything you touch has to fall apart or never seem to work. I sat on the porch and thought about it over and over.

As I was sitting and thinking what I am going to do, Hubby walks by with the water hose. He looks at me and asks for me to cut the water on. I simply look at him and tell him no that I was resting. (Remember I have been working in my project. I went back forth about 12 times laying the grass at each hole. I got 2 of them in the holes took 10 minutes each, so I am resting).

Well, Hubby has starting getting smart with me and blah, blah, blah. I tried to tune out most of it, because it is the only thing I know to do sometimes. So, I am still sitting on the steps, looking at my landscaping wondering where I could get nicer dirt at. I need dirt that isn’t trying to form into rocks. I am looking away from hubby (he is watering the chickens). Next thing I know Hubby is now spraying me down with the water hose. UGHHH!! I got so mad. Now I have mud dripping off me, because I have been working in the dirt for awhile. I was so mad I was now in tears. I picked up my phone and walked off. I needed to cool off, gather my brain, and try again.

I went walking for awhile, about 30 minutes or so, give or take, or take and give. I got back to my project Hubby helped me put my grass in the holes, I covered them up, made sure all the hard clumps where out and we finally got it done. I stayed outside and watered my flowers as it got darker by night. It was so peaceful during that time; it was like I could think clearly and figure out what I had to do next.

So, my next thing is… is to get something to mix with the dirt so it won’t dry out so much.

Here in the south it is hard to find something that will help stay moisturized. You are looking at the temperature being in the high 90s, humid, and pollen counts through the roof. One idea is getting potting soil to mix with the dirt and then getting mulch to cover the top.

I still got some thinking to do, but I need to get outside and get my doors done. I shall return later. 🙂

We all need a good Hoe

I have been telling you guys about my projects I have been doing. I found my camera and finally got done hoeing the grass to make the shape of the landscaping. Now I am waiting on my mulch, and the plastic lining. I’m not done completely yet, but here are some pictures of my progress. Sorry I haven’t posted anything in awhile, but been busy with the outside, and spending time with hubby as much as I can.
On another thought. I hope my readers have had a wonderful weekend. I hope it wasn’t as hot where you are, as it was here. It was so hot here you could have wringed me out and hung me on the clothesline to dry.

I did most of this by myself 🙂 WOOHOO!! A garden hoe, shovel, and a rake. Who says a woman can’t do things?

Job is never done

To begin this lovely day I am posting a picture of what I did yesterday. I still have work to do, but it is getting done 😀 I am so happy that the projects I am working on is getting done before my eyes. I think I have 3 projects going on at once, since it is so hot outside I can’t finish my landscaping outside.

So, yesterday I hung up a curtain in my bathroom (there was a mirror missing, making it look off). I still need to put up my other curtain on the other side, but here is what it looks like now.

Now, all I like is Redo the pictures on the right, the curtain on the other side to make it even, and vacuum. Then I will like painting the mirror sliding closet doors frames black, and finding a huge picture to put over our bed, which I will post picture when I get that done and when I completely finish my bathroom which is halfway in my bedroom, ha!

Project 2

Project 1 is my landscaping and I will post pictures and update on that later.

I hope all my readers are having a glorious day!
