Another One...

So I found another totally awesome and cute idea.  See awesome idea here
I mean seriously, how many bland t-shirts do you have laying around in some drawer that you never wear because they're boring...

I really need to get my sewing machine fixed or stop blog reading, and we all know option number 2 will probably - no definitely never happen.  Off to find a sewing machine fixer...

What a Cute Idea

So, as I was reading through the way too many blogs I try to keep up with, I came across this fantastic little idea.  You have to check it out!  So super cute.

I have some projects in mind.  I am trying to plan them out and hopefully get started up in the next few days/weeks.  Really, it just boils down to the fact that it has been over 4 months since I've spray painted something.  So I'm getting a little trigger finger itchy.  :)

Seriously though, I do have 3 projects at home that need a little TLC, and a work project.  I have 2 small drawer units at my desk at work, and they are so bland.  So I am going to make them pretty.  I'll be sure and post before and after pics.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

It's Been Awhile

Well, summer is about over, school starts back up on Monday (for the first time, I did NOT wait until the last minute to buy school supplies) and our lives should get back to normal somewhat.  This summer was so incredibly busy - good, but busy.  I'm excited to get back into blogging a little bit.

We just got back from a short little family getaway - it was so nice to just get away and disconnect for a few days.  We didn't do anything special, just went camping, the kids and Brandon did a little fishing, we took a paddleboat tour and just relaxed.  Why do vacations always go by way too fast??

I have alot of things I want to get started on this fall... running and working out are 2 of them.  I just had absolutely no time this summer for anything extra, so I'm excited to get back into it again.  I'd like to do a half marathon, but I need to find a really easy one.  :)  We are about to do a body cleanse (advocare).  Has anyone ever done one before?  This will be our first time, and I have no idea what to expect... But after all the crappy eating and no exercising all summer, I feel like I need to do one really bad.  And, I am trying to get around to finish re-doing my kids bathroom.  Nothing major, just painted cabinets and hardware, new shower curtain and accessories and removed wall paper, textured and painting the walls.

Anyway, that's about it for tonight.  Gotta go get my Hell's Kitchen fix for the night!
