Parenting Magazine.

I found out the other day I was featured in the May issue of Parenting Magazine!

This was quite the surprise when I found out that I had to call my dad to troll the airport shops to find the correct issue (the airports get magazine's before everyone else). He found it and then immediately sent me pictures.  So exciting!!

Thank you.

I just want to say thank you so much to everyone that has supported my little shop over the last couple days. It means the world to me. So many amazing things have happened the past couple of days that its time to think about what my next move is for my shop. Crazy. It's so easy to get stressed out with all the work and time put into this little project, but when I slow down and look at what I've accomplished, I am amazed. I'm finally doing it, my dream of having my own business is becoming a reality. 

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Weekend Fun Times.

This weekend included:

Kitchen painting. 
Shelf painting.
Hook hanging. 
Baseboard replacing. 
Board games and drinks with friends. 
Lessons learned that tequila and I are not friends.
Sisters were here and once again no pictures taken. 

I see the light at the end of the kitchen tunnel (thank goodness) and maybe can have it all done by the end of next weekend. 

Hello blue wall
What started out as cleaning the baseboard soon turned into replacing the baseboard
I can't wait for my kitchen to be back in some kind of order
Thumb war
He is clearly happy about his picture being taken
Candice in her party hat 
I drew a card and had to have the top of the game box under my shirt the ENTIRE game. So uncomfortable.
I have no idea.

Did you have a nice Easter?

It didn't even feel like Easter to me.

Went to church in the morning, and met our new pastor and his family, still haven't made up my mind about that situation yet. Out to lunch with the usually group. Then home to work on house projects. 

We didn't eat Easter dinner until about 9 that night, when Husby's parents got home. By the time we were done eating I took one look at the kitchen and decided it was time for bed. 

The highlight of my day was talking to Jamie Jo and planning her arranged marriage. Yes, that's right she may be in Croatia right now but I'm lining up a husband for her when she gets back. During worship at the second service I might have been walking through the crowd with Jamie on FaceTime, trying to find get a picture of future husband. I know I'm kind of a creep.

House projects are finally getting done, almost all of my dining room furniture has it's first coat of primer and the kitchen in nearing completion. My goal is to have the inside done before the end of May. Totally doable. I've also learned that I need structure in my life, I'm much more productive when I don't have time to watch Dateline 6 hours a day. Currently planning a wedding (not mine), planning a baby girl's first birthday, working full time, keeping my shop going and getting our house done. Some people think I'm crazy but I LOVE it.

Right before Fuentes got in big trouble for putting his face on the table. 

 This is the chair project, and it's finally happening. I've only had them for a year now.

And a little side note. Apparently my cake stands were featured in the May issue of Parenting Magazine. Now to troll the grocery stores to find a copy.
