Six weeks of crazy

Wow, has it really been six weeks since I've blogged?  It has been so busy 'round here so let me just catch you up.

We had a few birthdays and celebrations in our family:  Dog, Sister in law, mother, brother in law, mother in law

A late night medical scare with our dog.  She's okay now.

We had our first snow of the year in October!

We helped move my Grandma and were so blessed to be gifted with her beautiful dining room table and chairs!

My parents visited us for the weekend from out of town!

We have watched every Duck Football game and are still fans even when they let us down.

I took a food sensitivity panel and am awaiting the results.

Halloween was spent here sick at home and Thanksgiving spent with my side of the family.  I won't mention then that I just got sick after Thanksgiving...We had some great time together and enjoyed shopping and watching the Civil War game.  Not to mention the FOOD.  I think I gained five pounds in two days!  Ha!

We had a great Thanksgiving Family Photo Shoot and are eagerly awaiting the final shots.

We got ourselves new snowboards, boots and bindings so that we're ready to hit the slopes this winter!

And believe it or not I haven't done ONE diy project!  How can that be?  Don't worry that will change very quickly!  I have a diy outdoor wreath on my project list and will be posting as soon as it's done.

And last but not least I got bangs!!!  The first real bangs since I was little and I am LOVING them!  Couldn't be happier!

More to come later.  Happy Sunday! xoxo

Dresser turned TV stand makeover!

Tonight, I am so excited to share with you what hubby has been working on for the last few months in his spare time.  Let me preface by saying that we've had our TV hanging on the wall above our fire place since we purchased it about a year ago.  And though I liked it there and it fit well, it wasn't exactly what I had in mind.  You see, while the TV is on and you're sitting on the sofa curled up in a warm blanket drinking hot tea, you can't have the gas fireplace running.  Not only do I use the TV for viewing movies and television shows, but I listen to a lot of music through it.  I love our fireplace but would love it more if I could use it!  So to solve that problem I was on a mission to find a nice TV stand.
After searching online and finding a lot of great furniture options, I realized I didn't really want to spend any money.  We had a dresser gifted to my husband years ago that we were planning on selling or donating but I really wanted to find a new use for i…

Homemade Mod Podge

We all know how expensive Mod Podge is at the craft store, right?  And since there are so many projects which use it, I thought I could find a homemade version online.  Love pinterest!  This is seriously the easiest DIY project I have ever done.
Supplies: A Jar (I rescued an empty Tostitos Creamy Spinach Dip Jar YUMMM which was on its way out to be recycled)Elmer's White Glue (I used two 4 fl oz bottles)Water Before I made the Mod Podge, I washed out the jar and spray painted the lid silver.  I also took off the label from the jar and did my best to get rid of all of the adhesive (first tried a paper towel and rubbing alcohol, but it didn't work and then I tried olive oil and it worked like a charm). Instructions: Empty glue into jarFill the empty glue bottle with water and pour into the new jar with the glue  (Ideally, you want 50% glue and 50% water)Shake, Shake, SHAKE the jar That's it!  You have made homemade mod podge!  EASY PEASY!
You can get a little fancy and create a lab…

TWO YEARS | remembering our miscarriage

We all have that day. The day when our world changed forever. For us, it was the day we lost our little one. I don't cry much anymore, but I remember. The pain isn't raw as it once was, but I will never forget.
I remember the day I found out I was pregnant. The day I told my husband he was a daddy to be. I remember the dreams we had for this baby. Our hopes. Our plans. Our future. I remember our normally un-snuggly dog coming up to me and nuzzling her head under my arm pit, resting her head on my belly as if she knew there was a little life growing inside of me. I remember the prayers. So many prayers. We prayed every night for this baby of ours. For their future. For their health. For their life. The unbelievable love.
The warmth of the sun and the smell in the air.
I remember the darkness descending. The blood. The emergency room. The tests. The feelings of fear. The spoken words. The reality dawning. The unimaginable pain.
The surgery.
The pain isn't raw as it once was…
