Blogging Blahs! Sorry for being absent lately in the blogging world! Who knows maybe it is the weather, maybe the time of year, or just maybe the busyness of our home. Whatever it is hopefully I will be back to projects, crafting and blogging about it all sometime soon. Please forgive give me from this break! Thanks. Until I return here is a very awesome and detailed website you will love and it all starts with the kitchen sink!

    New Plan

    I thought I would be painting the bathroom or almost done at this point well a change of plans!
    Have I ever told you I LOVE craigslist? In the back of my head I have been looking for the perfect bed for my daughter's room and you guessed I found it! You want to know the even better part? I have the cash saved for it and it is something I was prepared to keep searching for! The intention for my daughter's room is elegance. To get to that point I will have to patiently wait to stumble upon the things I would like for her room. For now I am so excited I can begin the process with the awesome find off craigslist! Here it is:
    It is a double size sleigh bed!! And no I do not intend to leave it looking like this. Super excited to pick it up and start painting away! The goal is to have the room complete and  somewhat put together over the next few weeks so stay tuned for the changes!

    I know you are all going to think I have gone crazy but I am on a mission for white, yes a white couch! Sad to say my thoughts are absorbed with daydreaming of the perfect well kinda perfect white couch. I have listed my current couch at least twice on craigslist but was to chicken to actually post the listing and deleted it. Just in case you have the most perfect imperfect white couch that needs a new home please don't hesitate to let me know. Until I find my treasure I have found some perfect inspiration pictures of your enjoyment!

    Yes it has been eight interesting years filled with lots of ups and downs. Thankfully I couldn't imagine going through these earthly challenges with anybody other than my husband! The amazing and wonderful thing is they are just earthly battles we face and our ultimate fulfillment is in the Lord. Thankful today especially that God has given me such a wonderful best friend, father, growing in godliness man to call my husband. I love you Don and Happy Anniversary. And so we all can enjoy my most favorite flower of all time, here is a picture of what I received today...
    from the most favorite man of all time that I call my Husband.

    Daddy Daughter Dance

    Normally I really try to keep this blog to crafty, decorating, or cleaning things but February is a month packed with other stuff so please bare with me as I fill you a little with the going on at our home!
    Tonight our town is having a Daddy Daughter Dance. This is HUGE excitement for our little girl. She literally waits all year for this event and loves every minute of the evening with her daddy. She has been going since she was 2 and she loved it then just a much as she loves it now. Hopefully years from now she will still get giddy to go on a date with her daddy! Anyway this event means a new dress and what girl doesn't love a new dress? There is an amazing shop in our town called Heather Hill, which if you have a little girl, it is a must to check out her website. Trust me you will fall in love with her clothing for girls! We definitely have!
    So this year we took our annual shopping trip to her store and Lauren picked out her dress for this glorious evening. The big dance starts at 6:30pm and my lovely daughter has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of her  Prince Charming aka "daddy" since ummm well about 2:30pm this afternoon! Lets hope these next couple hours fly by for her and she makes wonderful memories this evening that will stay with her for a lifetime!
