Bored with the gourds

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

After a month of gourds sitting around the house in vases and wooden boxes, not to mention used as bowling balls for Trae, I grew a little tired of them.

Although there are only a couple more days for Fall decorations, I thought I would liven them up for Thanksgiving. I took to them with gold spray paint which gave them some instant bling. I should've done this a long time ago. Note to self for next year.

(I also should've edited the photos but you get the idea.)
Have a happy day!

Getting to it

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

I was so excited to begin the weekend with reduced work hours and dive head first in to a bunch of projects and continue for the week. But then this migraine crept up on me and for three days it wreaked havoc. I was so happy when I woke up headache free this morning.

So this week I am finishing a bunch of photos and I already sanded down a piece of furniture which will be painted. I'll be blogging about weekend adventures with my dear friend Janet who came to visit from Utah the exact week that Hurricane Sandy came for a visit. It was planes, trains and automobiles for them!

I am also going to try my hand at wiring a new light for the hallway. It can't be that hard, can it? Famous last words. The last time we did this it took forever because of some strange wiring done in the 70's that we had to figure out. We'll see...

I have room parent stuff to attend which I am really looking forward to - it's all about making pilgrim hats with Blair and eating a Thanksgiving meal with Reese. I loved those days in elementary school, didn't you?

And I might even get a much needed haircut too. It's going to be a good week. Hope you enjoy yours!

Trae and Blair, the only two who stuck around for a picture before trick-or-treating.

A confession

Monday, November 5, 2012

I know it's PC to say that I limit my kids' television watching exposure. Really, I know I should limit it but when I really need to work...which is everyday, I turn on Disney Junior and let Trae have at it. There, I said it, I feel better now.

And speaking of Disney, we went to Disney on Ice the other night. We haven't been to a show since BelĂ©n and Charley were little so it was time to take the other three and since they were running a great special on tickets, we couldn't pass it up.

This is how good it was: Trae crying when the show was over.

Have a great day!

Mini cakes = fewer calories

Friday, November 2, 2012

It's that time of year when I do a little baking.
First up, miniature pumpkin shaped cakes.
I saw these on a magazine cover and thought they would be cute to give away
so that is what we did.
Who wouldn't want a mini cake?
