i don't know about yall...

...but we have been busy. we have been outside quite a bit. i had doctor stuff back and forth last week (which i'm still waiting on the results. i called in a favor to our office today so that our records lady can pull it off of our computer without waiting on the hard copy from the hospital.)

luke had an impromptu camping trip (to our side yard with miscellaneous stuff pulled out of the garage.) he has even made some new friends in the neighborhood. they also had family fun day at preschool. my kids, as usual, didn't have much fun b/c they don't like the bouncy house things. but we went and that is what matters. and i forgot my camera. such a good mama.


and sethy...my little sethy bean. he apparently got busted in the head today with his fisher price aquarium that was thrown across the room by his brother. it made a small laceration behind his ear. (have i mentioned for yall to please pray for our house to sell b/c if i can't get those two separated, then someone may seriously meet their demise...and i'm not sure at who's hands??)


and as promised, the first project. i think it turned out super cute. it didn't polish up all perfectly, but i'm actually great with that b/c i have every finish in my kitchen. what's another one with kind of a patina? i have antique brass pulls on my cabinets. my door knobs are brassy gold (hidioderous in the words of the grinch) and i have wraught iron looking lamps and accessories in my living room, that my kitchen opens up to. so there you have it. this verse (which was hastily scribbled with some fat sidewalk chalk...note to self...i need the skinny kind) was chosen because of where the tray sits. if you look beneath it, it is hiding my bread basket. cause it's ugly. so i thought it was fitting. hope you'll give it a try!!



if i had a bread box like this one...


or this one...


i wouldn't be all "shamed" of my basket. but i've said it once and i'll say it again, i have NO design element in my brain. i did give my bedroom a new spring spin this weekend. but it is truly nothing to behold. so i'll spare yall. i'll let you know as soon as i get my test results back.

Can I mention again how much I love that project and how I'm totally going to hijack it when I have a spare minute? LURVE it, sista!!
And I will be prayign for those sweet boys. They are precious. And if you need to, take my mantra when I want to kill mine, "Child of God, Child of God, Child of God", but what I'm really thinking is, "Satan spawn, where did you come from???"

I am very impressed at how dark sisters hair has gotten. Looks like you may miss that 3rd red head after all!

Your tray turned out GREAT, and I love the verse you picked to put on it! (Definitely easier to write with the skinny chalk.)

Also Cool
