I know that I've promised....

another giveaway....

But there has been just too much going on to even think about that right now (maybe in another week).

We've been preparing our house so we can put it up for sale this fall, which means new roofing, hardwood flooring, lots of painting, and tearing up our hall bathroom to make it look decent. (pictures will be coming soon).

We've had a heck of a time trying to plant grass in the backyard, but it's slowly coming along- thank goodness! We re-vamped the front porch so it looks nice, and I planted some flowers in some planters. We finally don't have the crappiest house on the block!

Along with fixing up the house (oh, did I mention that stripping cabinets sucks?), Layla's 7th birthday is on Monday, so I've been preparing for that too. Boy, time sure does fly by when there's so much to do!


  1. Best wishes on getting the house ready- we've been remodeling for years so I know how exhausted you must be! Happy Birthday to Layla too ♥

  2. Ohhhhhh man, that's a lot of work. I have painted kitchen cabinets that I was deciding whether I should strip before I paint or just paint over the existing color. I think I'll just paint over the existing color, lol. I can't wait for your pics!

    P.S. My brown dress was NOT a cool vintage find- it's from Marshalls! lol

  3. lol- Well, it looks like a cool dress. And yes, I'm totally exhausted. I wish I had an extra 50,000 to put into the kitchen, but it looks like it's just going to have to be elbow grease. Ugh!

    PS Amy, you'll be saving someone a lot of hard work if you strip those cabinets first! :)
