Weekend in Review

This weekend has been a busy one to say the least.  On Thursday, I traveled home to spend some time with my parents.  On Friday, my dad and I cut out a ton more shapes prepping to showcase my Easter Collection for my door hangers.  Then we to clean out several units.  My parent’s own a storage facility, and when people don’t pay their rent their units have to be cleaned out.  We got about half way through one of three units.


On Saturday, we spent the day getting a new facebook page ready for my new business adventure with my mom.  We will be offering wood door hangers, and her boot bands to begin with.  Hoping to expand to more in the future.  I also worked on the door hangers some as well.


Sunday, I went to church with my parents, and then came home to prepare lunch.  After lunch, I took a little siesta.  Can’t have a Sunday home without a nap right.  Then it was back to painting the door hangers getting them ready to go.

Linking up with Bella, and Biana.

Weekend In Review – LATE


What a weekend it was!

We had a very busy week last week as well as a very busy weekend.

We didn’t do much fun, but we got a ton of things done around the house.

On Friday night, we took it easy.  We had dinner at the house, and caught up on our shows on list.

This is my little baby – Aiden. Yes, I named him a human name when I was back in college, and no I don’t regret it.
This is my mom’s baby – Sophie. I am keeping her while my parent’s are in Texas seeing my nephews.

I even snuggled with these little rugrats.

Saturday was quite another story.

First thing on Saturday morning, I got up and went to a little store right down the road from my house to purchase my wooden door hangers.  I purchase them from there first of all because it saves me time, and makes my husband not have to do all that hard work.  I got several for the upcoming holidays as well as a few for just everyday.  I typically do several burlap designs, but decided for these holidays I would try my hand at some wooden shapes.

Before the day was over, I ended up priming most of the shapes.



This is my husband painting our cabinet doors for our laundry room and mudroom area.  Last year for Christmas, my dad built us cabinets in our laundry room, mudroom, and a bench seat in our front guest bedroom.  We have thoroughly enjoyed them; however, we have been missing our cabinet doors for several months – almost 12 months to be exact.  Beggars can’t be choosers right? ha…

Earlier in the week, my husband built me the coffee table that I had been wanting so that it matched our end tables.  I was swooning over the exact style in a post earlier last week here.  I decided that I would go ahead and paint it using the same Annie Sloan paint that I used on our end tables.  I absolutely love Annie Sloan paint and the waxes.  After painting the coffee table, I decided to get adventurous and refinish another piece of furniture that was in the room.  Whew, what was I thinking?  Saturday night, we ended up relaxing while I worked on redoing my business site.

Here is a little glimpse at the finish…


On Sunday, we went to church, and came home for a little lunch and a nap.  Then we were back at painting the cabinet doors, priming the wooden shapes, and finishing the wax finish on the other piece of furniture.  We had a very productive weekend, but somewhat glad to be back to the weekly grind.

Did you have a busy weekend like us?

Weekend in Review

What an exciting weekend we had this past week.  This past weekend my in-laws, and my husband’s brother and sister came for a visit, and we all went to the Birmingham Bowl on Saturday.  My husband and in-laws are HUGE Florida Gator fans.  We were super lucky this year with them playing their bowl game in Birmingham; however, not super lucky because they didn’t win many games this year.

My Husband and I before the game.

Great Picture of the in-laws before the game.

WeekendInReview5 Us Girls.

Below you will see the shirts that I designed up with my Silhouette Cameo prior to the game.  A Southern Gal can’t go to the game without the right attire now can they?  If you are a huge football fan, then you know what the answer is.



Gotta love a picture of Alberta and Albert!

And I can’t have a weekend full of some SEC football without sharing a few action shots.

To say we had a good weekend, that’s an understatement despite hunkering under ponchos for the first two quarters.
