Good Ole Family Fun in Tennessee

July 24, 2015



Wanted to pop in and quickly tell you all, how much I am missing you this summer. I made this decision to lay low and have fun with the kids during the break....and I have and I will for one more week (sigh, kids go back next Friday). At the same time I have missed my projects, writing posts, reading your comments and the pure joy that I receive from blogging. So thank you for that.


This past week we took one last family trip for the summer to Dollywood and to Gatlinburg in Tennessee.  Even with the extreme heat and rain showers, we had an amazing time. 
I will share some trip highlights and some trip advice in the upcoming weeks.

I will be heading to Sherwin Williams today to pick up more paint samples so I can slap a few more colors on the house this weekend, and have a decision by the time the painters show up next week. Real exciting...I know.

I sure hope you are doing something far more fun and exciting with your weekend....you better be!

Don't forget to follow me here for daily snippets on instagram and here on Facebook.



grateful
family time

My summer outdoor projects....and a new one to add to the list

July 16, 2015



I have taken this summer slackin thing to a whole new level....and I am not apologizing for it...... not one bit. So far this summer, I have managed to pull off one outdoor project, and even that would be a stretch since my hubby did most of the work and I haven't even pulled the post together yet.


Although, it is my intent to share the details of this towel tower before summer is over.  By the way, this thing has saved me from spending more time in the laundry room doing only 135 loads instead of the usual 438 loads.

Sunday Musings- OMG Makeover, sunflowers, paint decision, next project

July 12, 2015




This is my OMG makeover moment. And no, I do not miss the cherry stain walls...or those curtains for that matter. 


How to see time differently....with a new shade

July 8, 2015



Hard to imagine that my slow and easy summer bliss will be coming to an end in just a few short weeks. I have enjoyed the heck out of every second with my kids, and feel so incredibly blessed to be able to spend this precious time with them. 




The Rock Star of the Painting Scene....My Paint Saint

July 6, 2015



It's no secret....I love to paint. Oddly, it provides a calmness and peace that I can't really explain nor likely that would you understand, especially to those that have never picked up a paintbrush or don't like to paint. 
This is one of my recent projects that is currently on summer hiatus, the downstairs den. Going from beige to blue.....when the kids go back to school. It's between Tidal Water and Watery, colors from SW.



and the Guest House bedroom, which I am about finished with since I am trying to get it ready before my mom comes to stay for a few months. fyi......the apple did fall to far from the tree since my mother is not a painter nor is anybody in my immediate family or inner circle.
