Easy Project

My brother is always saying the home projects I pick are alittle difficult haha. Well a few days ago, I picked up a few items because I was going to finish an easy pinterest project. And another wreath for the house

There was really only a few steps. First, I wrapped the wreath with blue and red yarn. This was the most time consuming part.

I also spray painted a few stars

I finally got a glue gun!

And attached them to the wreath- ALL DONE!

you can find the project here.

Question for you:

Last Day!

Last Day of First grade that is. How crazy is that?!?!?!

Ok. Let’s move on 😦

Today, is just random. But days like today make life exciting and fun.

First, I found some protein powder at Sam’s. FOUR LBS OF IT!!!!

Strength training workout of the day: Dumbbell Tricep Extensions (demo from sparkpeople.com)

Andrew had his last day of first grade.

The first second graders met at Ted Drews for a nice treat. The kids were everywhere!

I am going to start another project. Thanks pinterest! This one should only take an hour or so (more to come on that)

And look what I found on my way to bed!

Well, I hope you had a great Thursday.

Question for you:

Do you use protein powder?

What is your favorite way to use protein powder?

-I put it in with my green monster shakes. YUM!

Happy News

Today, started with a field trip with Andrew and his classmates to the zoo. Oh man. I don’t think I could be a teacher. I only had five kids in my group, but WOW I’m exhausted haha.

Andrew and I actually left straight from the zoo (skipping the lovely bus ride) to get to his ENT appointment. From November, he was always having ear infections or strep. We finally met with an allergist a few weeks ago, and today we met to talk about if he needs tubes in his ears, or his tonsils out. LUCKILY! We are thinking neither! WAHOOOOOOOOO

She said, we just need to keep an eye on him. I am so happy that at this moment he is doing so well, and hasn’t been sick in two months!

Now to leave you with a pinterest quote

And a found these old photos…..

Just for giggles

Since I wrote SOOOOOO much yesterday, I thought I would just share some things I found on good o’ pinterest. I know it seems like a silly site, but I actually find recipes, workouts, and quotes.

These are a few that have meaning to me, after the past few days of needing a pick me up

The last one is my favorite 🙂

I hope you all are having an amazing day. Thanks for listening. This blog is like my diary, and I’m lucky to have amazing people who listen. Thank you.

Question for you:

Any funny quotes, pictures, or things you found online? or just in life?

– Today, I accidentally poked Andrew in the eye. After yelling OUCH, he asked “Am I going to have to wear a patch now?” haha. I about died.

Before and After: Mantel

I love “before and after” shots.

From Fall to Christmas, messing w/ contact paper, I even have a previous mantel before and after.

Today’s isn’t such a big deal, but I LOVEEEEE the after.

I have this picture from pinterest (yup. I love it and yet it gets me in trouble haha)

I found these really pretty flowers at Target, and bit the bullet and bought them for the mantel.

AFTER

Question for You:

What is on your mantel?

Do you like having flowers around the house?

taking down more walls

Today was a whirlwind.

Breakfast started w/ eggs, pb, and banana

I then grabbed a gas station coffee and headed to my “home away from home” Home Depot.

I got some good stuff BECAUUUUSSSSEE I have decided to redo the bathroom on the first floor. Or as we like to call it “The pepto bathroom”

At first, we were just going to put in the new sink, paint the cabinet, get some new fixtures and light, and a new lid for the toilet.

WELLLLLLLLLLL then I found myself looking at Pinterest and it all went to hell down the drain from there.

I found this bathroom which I really LOVED. And I thought. how easy- right?!?!?! WRONG!!!!

because everytime I want to work on a project, it SOMEHOW involves taking down walls. Why oh why do I decide to work on my house. I really just need to stop haha.

I was really excited to get started on my own. (dont mind the hair and how extremely tired I look!)

I  removed all the towel racks (there were THREE!), put in new door handles, painted the cabinet, and spray painted the mirror.

They will need another coat of paint, so I started on getting the tile off the walls. which happen to be CEMENTED to the plaster.

 FABULOUS! (remember the kitchen!!!)

I was really bummed because I like starting a project and see results, or at least progress.

Anyway, the damage has begun. The tile is going to have to be CUT OUT tomorrow. It is not going to be an easy or fast task AT ALL. Luckily, my handyman brother and his assistant my dad are coming over to work with me. I love them 🙂

Lunch wasn’t till 1, and it was a simple turkey, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, with a side of apple and colby cheese. Nothing fancy.

Dinner was easy as well, since my kitchen is housing all the stuff to work on the bathroom. I made a turkey burger, and had a side of grapes and corn on the cob. Dessert was frozen yogurt w/ fiber one cereal.

Lab Update: I still don’t have the results back from Friday. (I hate when it takes so long on the weekends but it is what it is) Luckily, tomorrow I am calling the office, they said they should have them by then. I am still having really weird symptoms……

Well time for bed, Happy First Day of Spring!

Question for you:

How did you spend the first day of Spring?

obsessed

I know the rest of the world has been on pinterest since the beginning of time…..well I just finally got on board. (thanks Anna for getting me obsessed.)

So I typed in my email to get an invitation, but I still haven’t got one.(just an email saying I will someday….) Anyone know what the deal is?

Anyway. Here are a few things I found that I love!

~~~~~

Twins. One baby wasn’t doing so well, so they put them together and the sicker baby started doing much better!

I would love to make a fire pit for my back yard!

I think Andrew would want this,since he is obsessed in love with legos

Fall outfit! and of course the starbucks 😉

and the quotes are amazing on there too!
