My very own "mis treatments"!

Lately I have become a blog addict. Home decorating blogs that is. There are so many fabulous tips from other budget and DIY decorators out there it is overwhelming! I am like a kid in a candy store when I read these ladies genius ideas and I get so inspired. This week I took out much frustration on my poor house. I started with trying the "Nester's" ideas for "mistreatments".
You can read more about her ideas HERE.
Also check out some of my other button links on this blog for more brilliant blogs.

These lovelies simply require hot glue and your own creative mind! No sewing!

Tired of your outdated bathroom cabinets?


Time out.... outside! Another Camping adventure.

Last weekend we went camping to get away from the daily grind and relax in the GORGEOUS weather. It is so nice to pitch a tent by the side of the river and have all day and night to enjoy it! We took the top off the jeep and strapped the canoe, and off we went! We did learn a lesson. Don't bring the canoe. There are not many places to put it in (the water there is more for Kayaking) and with it strapped to the Jeep it limited our off - roading abilities. Nevertheless, we still had a lot of fun and even spotted a "must have" camping spot to snag in the near future!

Payton loves to throw rocks in the river and was teaching me how.

Flashback Friday: Easters past

While looking through our pictures this year I could not help but remember last years Easter pics which were very similar.....only so different! Which brought me to my new idea, Flashback Friday! I think it will be fun to put together pictures now and then to reminisce and remind us how fast time goes by! Savor each moment!

Spring Fun!

Now that Spring has officially arrived I wanted to share some spring moments from our home. My favorite things about Spring are our family campfire gatherings in the backyard, the longer days of sunshine, YARD SALES, outdoor picnics, a cold drink, and music of the season. My current music selections to get me geared for the warmer weather are Jack Johnson, Sugarland, and Jason Mraz.

I am currently enjoying a cold Diet Cheerwine ( a southern favorite) and just noticed it is aspartame free! New favorite drink!

What are your favorite things about Spring?

Payton in her rain boots before dance class. Love these boots. These are on my list of Spring loves this year.

I love the way the shadow of the tree is in this pic. Can you see the egg?

Canoeing Around

Last weekend we decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and take the canoe out. Along the way we discovered some dirt trails to take the Jeep 4 wheeling. We had a blast! The Jeep got quite dirty and Tommy is very proud of that. Payton got a little scared but was yelling for more by the time we finished. We are looking forward to many more trips this spring and summer!
