Sister’s Barn Yard Baby Shower

Sister’s Barn Yard Baby Shower

I can’t believe I never shared pictures from the Barn Yard Baby Shower we threw for my sister way back in February!  The nursery has a farm theme so we decided we would carry that through to the shower.  We had one little big problem though.  The stage in the Fellowship Hall at my church was still up from the Christmas Play and it needed to stay up for another Show we were having in March.  And taking that bad…

Avery’s 4th Birthday Party {Costume Party}

Avery’s 4th Birthday Party {Costume Party}

We decided to throw a little costume party for Avery’s 4th birthday.  Her birthday is around Halloween so we thought it would be fun for me the kids to wear their costumes again.  The awesome thing about a costume party is anything will work theme-wise.  See the Scooby Doo cake below. No one could ever accuse our families of being stuffy.  Most of the adults were dressed up in costumes and had as much fun as the kids.  Clearly, we don’t take ourselves…

Cades Cove, TN

 We’re savoring the last week of summer before school starts back!  I can’t believe that summer is almost over.  We just got home from our last summer jaunt with my family last night.  I think I am officially a vacation crasher since I’ve already crashed a trip to White Lake, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC in addition to this one.  But we have had a blast doing it!  We drove over to Cades Cove, TN from Pigeon Forge one day of…

Mudroom

Mudroom

Going on three years ago, we contracted out the construction of our house. We didn’t have a contractor which meant I hired different people to handle the tasks of building the house. Plumbers, electricians, cabinet makers…you get the idea. We saved between $20 and $25 per square foot by doing this part ourselves. But it wasn’t for the faint of heart and at the end I was so tired of dealing with it and ready to move in that there were some rooms…

2012 {in review}

2012 {in review}

I intended to post a lot more in 2012.  I had good intentions.  But time was short and my to-do list was long. I decided to give you a quick and dirty recap of our year just like I did for 2011. I reduced my hours at work this past May. One would think I should have more time on my hands for blogging and such but as it turned out, I had less.  I tried to make sure I spent the majority of…

Date Night, VBS and Mom’s Birthday

Date Night, VBS and Mom’s Birthday

My husband and I enjoyed a Date Night last night. We rarely eat anywhere without a playground anymore. We had dinner at Atlantic Grill in Greenville and it was wonderful! They make everything from scratch and their radio advertisement says their beef is from a local grower. I had the molasses glazed pork chop. It was at least 3 inches think but cooked perfectly. Chad had a steak – which he said was one of the best steaks he’s ever…
