Let your walls tell your story

I am now in a place big enough for me and my family…AND I LOVE IT!!! Everything about it just says comfort, secure and livable. The only thing is that I have NEVER had to decorate a place. My mother decorated my first place and any place after that I just put my furniture in there and just….lived. Now that I am married and have three little one I want my home to have some personality.  Continue reading

Sometimes I feel like just giving up. I think if I drop something then maybe I could get that little bit of extra sleep I wish I had or that extra time to relax. I want the chance to spend time with friends and family on the weekends without worrying about missing work. Continue reading

You Know You are a Mom When……

I found these hilarious facts from Lisajobaker website It actually had me in tears of laughter because we as moms can relate to if not all 98 percent of these.

  1. You are pretty much embarrassment-proof.
  2. A trip to the grocery store alone is your idea of a spontaneous getaway.
  3. You buy enough milk on a weekly basis to sponsor an entire dairy farm.
  4. When you put on make up the kids get excited that you’re all going out.
  5. If you don’t change the toilet paper roll, it doesn’t get changed.
  6. You can’t remember what the words “personal space” mean. Continue reading

Winter storm in GA?! ~List of school closings and late openings~

Image         OK NORTHERNERS before you go sucking your teeth calling us wimps, you all have to realize “US GA FOLKS DON’T DO COLD!!!!” We can barely do rain what makes you all we think we can do the cold. To make it even worse the ICE storm in 2011 that knocked EVERYTHING in GA out of business for a week really had us shaking. (Literally) I know I personally don’t want to be locked inside my house for that long again. WAL-MART even shut down. (Now you know how serious it was.) But now we are about to experience somewhat similar weather changes. Tomorrow we will have a high of 27 degrees and that still don’t count how it will feel with the heavy winds that will be blowing and making it feel like -15 degrees. I know for one am not liking the fact that I have to get up early in the morning to see the after effects of the snow that will be falling a few hours earlier. This is what FOX 5 Channel News had to say on their site. “The arctic chill rolls in later on tonight. This could start as a wintry mix for parts of North GA, and then we’ll see potential icing on roads and the coldest temps in over 10 years.” Read more: http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/#ixzz2paMOcJim  Everyone up North can have the cold weather. I will take “HOT LANTA” ANYTIME. 🙂

Fall Home Decor

Over the past few weeks I have found out that I have a creative side when it comes to D.I.Y home décor. I have always thought they were too hard or too expensive to do and was proven to be wrong for both theories.  Here are a few of my projects I did for my living room.

Materials used:

Ribbon (I used three different designs) (Wal-Mart & Dollar Tree)

Nature from outside (pinecones, pine straw, leaves, twigs, etc.)

Spray Paint (Don’t matter what kind. I do like the texture effect one of mine gave. It had a stone effect)

Craft Glue: (Chose one that either comes out clear or dry’s clear.)

Long Trumpet glasses (I bought mine at the dollar tree for $1 each.)

Vase (Hobby Lobby)

Bowl (Hobby Lobby)

Large Plate (Hobby Lobby)
