Snowy day

The weather forecasters got it wrong again they predicted a non event. They said we were only going to get 1 - 3 inches of snow, I think we have at least 6 inches. The driving yesterday was treacherous. Every thing turned icy once it started to snow hard. It took me forever to get home.....I have never slipped and slid so much as I did yesterday. So much for the non event they forecasted. It is pretty though and the kids and dogs are loving it!

Office Redo

Here are some pictures from my office redo. I tried to spend as little as possible to get it looking good. The biggest expense was the desk. I am really happy with the way it turned out. So one project down.........countless more to tackle.

Project overload????

Well I have been SLOWLY working on cleaning and reaorganizing throughout the house.

At the the same time working on a bunch of side projects
-painting a few found treasures
-hanging curtains(trying to do some Nester window mistreatments....a work in progress LOL)
-bathroom updates

I think I may have too many things going on at once LOL. I get so many wonderful ideas from reading other blogs while it is great.....I then want to do it all!!! FOCUS!!!!

Today I am going to start decrapifying our office....while at the same time putting a second coat of paint on my projects. Multitasking!!!

Can you relate at all? Tell me I am not crazy..........

Undecorating and other weekend FUN LOL

Well now I am a little late with my undecorating this year. Just got around to it this weekend. Well it just isn't nearly as fun or exciting as putting it up!

What other fun have we been up to today....we made a trip to Walmart for some necessities.....isn't that always such a treat LOL. It was crowded people were grouchy....oh joy!!!!! We couldn't get out of there fast enough.

At home Meg and I made brownies in the perfect brownie pan. I got it as a gift for Christmas. And we love it. I couldn't cut brownies even to save my life now they are perfect every time!!! We also made pizza for dinner. I am tired and done for the day.

Hope you are all having a good weekend so far!

Well.....not like I planned

Christmas break is certainly not turning out as I had planned!

My Dad has been in the hospital twice in the last two weeks. Had two surgeries this week! We are hopeful he will get to come home this weekend. I normally love Christmas break each year....time at home with the kids....no schedule just hanging out. Well we haven't had much of that these last two weeks.....and break is almost over!!!! Don't get me wrong...I am so thankful that Dad is going to be fine in a few weeks time! I just missed my Christmas break....can I get a redo...do over?????
