Life around here has been quite uneventful *knocks on wood*

A great deal of my time has been spent working on some personal projects and schlepping my kids to their activities. I’m low key stressed at the fact that school will be out in a little over a month. I can’t even fathom the fact that this school year is already over, and I need to get serious about planning our Summertime activities. Can’t even.

I’ll do a house update sometime this week. There is so much that needs to be done around here that I need to take the time to write it all down and create a plan of attack….kind of like they do on Young House Love. The kitchen is improperly painted, the baby drew on my newly painted cabinets with a pink Sharpie…you know those little things that will drive you batty if you let them. I’m going to create a to do list, post it here and require y’all to hold me accountable.

I’d been moaning and groaning about wanting a rocking chair to put on the front porch but was too cheap to buy one. Finally found one in my price range. Placed it on the porch and now it just looks empty. Headed to Hobby Lobby the other day to get materials to make a wreath. Must’ve walked circles around that store for nearly 2 hours and ended up leaving with a large S. That’s all, not even a candy bar. Please don’t ask me what I am going to do with this S, I imagine at some point it will become a monogram wreath. I’ll keep you posted.

Apparently the front porch needs more than a rocking chair.

Outside of obsessing over what to do with a large S, and a Sharpie emblazoned cabinet I’m really feeling this whole gardening thing. Who knew? My babies are growing well and when I find time this week I am going to finally put them in their permanent homes. It’s going to be like container heaven. I’m taking the deck over instead of raised beds. I just want to make sure the area where I want to put them will get enough sun.

So that’s all going on in this burb’ of the ATL.

What’s going on in your neck of the woods? Where are y’all going for Summer vacation I might steal your idea? Summer camp for the kids or days of playing outside and only coming in for restroom and water breaks? Do share friends!!!

I’m running another $100 Kohl’s Gift Card Giveaway. Enter >HERE<

What’s up?!!

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes.  I can’t even hardly begin to believe that we are already in March.

Speaking of March I am so ready for Spring. Jack Frost has really shown his arse this year and I am over it. We’ve been teased with a few days here and there and that just highlights the fact that Jack is indeed a hater.

The laundry room is practically completed except for a few décor items. I need some curtains and a few more pictures to hang on the wall and I will do the reveal. I found these cabinet pulls at Hobby Lobby and fell in love. Wait until you see how they tie into the space.

Since I’m about finished with the space I now feel comfortable moving on to the kitchen. Ugh. I keep telling y’all picking paint colors to me is tantamount to making a life decision, as if I can’t paint over it if I don’t like it.

My children are growing like weeds. Lawd, how do people with more than 2 children handle the seasons changing and buying new clothes. I’e been watching my coupons like a hawk waiting on the perfect time to swoop in and rack up on the Spring items that go on sale. If they can hold on for a few more weeks without looking like the Incredible Hulk in their jeans I’ll be one happy Mama.

We’re heading to Miami next week for a little vacation. My father is coming to stay with the children. I can’t remember the last time the Mr. and I were able to go away without them…that might be a never have happened. I’m on the countdown. I guess I should start thinking about what I am going to take with me. Warm weather and sun….good thing I’m leaving the babies here. I have a reason to come back home.

I am pretty much obsessed about the décor of the outside spaces of the house. I suppose that is because at some point the weather will break and I want nothing more than to spend my days outside on the back porch, the front porch or in the garden. I just want to be outside sipping on a little Sangria and I need my spaces to be right. I’ll be working on those at the same time as the kitchen. Wish me luck.

Speaking of warmer weather, I’m lightweight worrying about what I am going to do with the children for summer break.

What’s up in your neck of the woods? Are you up to your neck in snow? Who’s ready for Spring fashion? What are you doing with your children for the summer?
