Friday Finds and some other fun stuff!!!

Not sure if you would consider this a true find.  I didn't hunt for it, I kinda just stumbled across, didn't even know I needed it, until I saw it.

WWW #5

What I'm eating, What I weigh and What She wore....#5 

So I'm done with the 12 week plan I was following from the Kristi Approved Plan, only I'm not?  Yep still eating from the meal plan, but now I just mix and match the six meals I eat.
Currently the fave is chicken w/sweet potatoes and veggies.  Yummy!  I put curry powder on the chicken.  You can have what ever veggies you like too.  I had mushrooms, zucchini, yellow squash and parsnips.  Yep, parsnips!  lol  I love them, but they are an acquired taste I'm told.  lol

Calling all Bloggers!!!

I'm looking for some guest bloggers, any one interested?  Hmmm?  I'd love to run a guest blog every Monday starting in May.  Please leave me a comment, or contact me directly if you'd like to participate. 

Happy Easter!!!

I hope all of you have the Happiest Easter ever!  I can't believe it's almost May.  Beefcake will be home on the 24th, exactly one month from today. 

So the bunny slacked this year big time.  I had to get a babysitter Friday night so I could get all the stuff I wanted for today.  That is cutting it close in my book.
Then this  morning I had to get up with the sun to assemble all the eggs and hide everything.  Which was a ton of fun.  I love being the bunny.

Summer Wardrobe Here I Come!!!

I'm not gonna lie, I'm not just busting my hump everyday dieting and exercising for perfect health, at least it's not the only reason.  I want to feel better about myself, and look good in cute clothes.  I'm a girl, we like cute clothes and cute shoes.  It's in our DNA.

When Beefcake comes home for R&R this Summer he's taking the family to Disney for a week.  Hello!  Florida, in the summer!  I have to be in shape to pull off shorts and little dresses, not to mention a bikini.  Let's face it, I'm not getting any younger, so this could be my last year to wear a bikini.

Change of Ribbon

This by far was the easiest project I have ever done.  I bought some cute white dishes at Marshall's not to long ago, the kind with the ribbon woven through it.  I wasn't terrible fond of the red ribbon with white polka dots.  I like polka dots, but not on my dining table.

Before red with polka dots.

After green with artichokes?  I couldn't resist shopping my house and bringing my artichokes back out.  I love them, cause they are fake and green. 

I don't miss the polkadots.

Thanks for stopping by!!  xx

What do you think?

I went to Hobby Lobby the other day, cause I'm addicted, and found these cute trunks on clearance.  SCORE!  What do you think about them?  I put them in the office, cause the office doesn't get enough attention!  lol

I bought them to go in my room, but some how they didn't make it.  I  made the picture frame, well I embellished it.  I have a great tutorial coming up, you'll have to stop back by.....;)

I haven't decided what to put on them yet, or in them, but they will probably be used as extra storage.  They had three sizes available, but I only bought the small and medium one.  They would make a great side table too.  These two together are the perfect size for that.

Cheers and Happy Friday! xx

Wednesday Weigh In, What I'm Eating, What She Wore #4

Okay so I'm back to my regular scheduled workouts, no more daily videos.  So far no pain, and since it's only been 2 days not a huge difference in my weight loss.  It wasn't a bad week,  I lost 1.5 lbs, now the grand total lost is 23.5 lbs for a new weight of 151.5 lbs.  Hopefully after a week of my workouts I'll start to see the scale go down even faster.  Vacation is in 6 weeks!  Yikes.  Hubby is home in 5 weeks, double Yikes! 

My favorite meal this week is my tuna/egg salad.  It is so yummy, and easy.

2 cups lettuce
green onions
1/2 can tuna, in water
1 hard boiled egg
1 tb light mayo
2 tb sugar free sweet relish

Look at what she's wearing this week!  Omg, she is a funny girl. 

Here she is trying on her pool cover up, she had to have new clothes for the trip!

I love how she tried her suit on with her undies still on!  She's gonna be so stylish on vacation!

Don't forget to check out my Give Away and Party! xx

Patio Update!!!

Remember many moons ago when I asked you to vote on fabric?  Well the pillows have arrived!  The are GORGEOUS!  I'm so in love with them. 

I bought them online from this fabulous Etsian, This Little Home.  She is super friendly and helpful, and totally custom.  I wanted Euro Shams, and she didn't even blink, well she might have but I didn't see it. 

Don't they look comfy!  Okay, so I haven't gotten to far with the patio.  I think  I wll buying a little table this weekend, but not really sure what else to put out here.  What do you think?  I need stuff for the walls, but what?  There's so much color now!  lol

Don't hold back tell me what you think! xx

Don't forget I have a weekly 'Anything Goes Party' from Tues-Thurs every week!

Anything Goes Party #13

Party Time!  Is it just me, or are the weeks flying by?  Before I know it I'm gonna be in Disney with Beefcake and the kids.  I promise the party will still go on the week I'm gone.  Fingers crossed Beefcake buys me a Mac book!  (but if not, he has a laptop)

I'm completely gaga over this couch from Crisp Interiors.  Why can't I find stuff like this on craigslist?

 Attempting Aloha made this cool Coral sign, I may have to make one.  It would go great in my master bathroom, it already looks like the beach.

Peas and Crayons made my mouth water with this dish, I heart Thai food!

Loving this Pottery Barn knock-off from Elizabeth & Co

Those of you I feature, please grab a button from my button page, if you want.  =)
On to the party.  No rules, just a couple suggestions.
1.  I would love it if you became a FRIEND of my blog, it'll make it easier for you to find the party.

2. Please put a link back to this party some where on your post/page so others can join in the fun.  I even have a button if you want to use it.  If you have a party page you can put the link there, I do that.

3.  Please link as much of anything you want, no limit.  Etsy shops and Give Aways too!

Ready, Set, Go!!!  xx

New Kitchen Stool


It's quite possible,  that I have an addiction to my Kitchen.  I love adding and changing stuff in this room.  I don't even like to cook, I just love my Kitchen. 

I had this ugly black plastic stool in there for ever.  Finally I went to Michael's and bought an unfinished wooden stool and painted it.  Of course I painted it!  lol  I would paint my kids if they let me!

Isn't it cute?  I spray painted it, I really heart spray paint.  I used Colonial Red, favorite red ever!
I did prime the stool gray, and then painted a zillion coats of red.  I didn't protect it with anything, why bother, it's in the kitchen and the kid are gonna be climbing all over it.

I couldn't resist, here's the rest of the kitchen. 

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my new kitchen stool!! xx

May the Force be with You


I can't be for sure, because I don't know every six year old boy on the planet, but my Connor has to be the biggest Star Wars fan on the planet.  He lives Star Wars.  He asked me once why I hadn't named him Luke.  If I had only known, I might have.  

Recently I bought him some very cool vintage prints for his room, but after they were hung, I took them down and returned them.  Just because I love vintage, doesn't mean my boy does.  I thought about it, and I kinda felt pretty stupid, Star Wars.  What was wrong with me?  I should have known better. 

So I hunted down some Star Wars art on Etsy, and wasn't disappointed.  I found some awesome prints for his room. 

I made a lot of changes this week in his room, it was time to make it even more Big Boy.
I got him the mirror for over his night stand/dresser.

I bought these from Cutitoutart on Etsy.  The seller was awesome, more than happy to change the back ground color of each picture.  I love how Vader is red, it's such a cool pop of color with the other three in tan.  Connor picked which characters he wanted, I was surprised when he said he wanted Han Solo.

These are hung right next to the character art.  They are blueprints from 1977 of the two of the ships in the movie.  The Millennium Falcon and Luke's Land Speeder.  I bought these from Goblinhut on Etsy, very cool.

Then I found these movie posters at Joneallen, again on Etsy.  They were originally 11x17, but I asked if they could be made into 11x14, and of course they could!  How awesome is that!  I just love the helpful sellers on Etsy and the unique items you can find. 

Not sure if you remember these, but they were originally red, I decided to tone the red in his room and painted them Almond.  I should mention the 5 layers of primer it took to cover the red!  Yikes, red is hard to cover.  Then I took my chalk and wrote "May the Force be with you" on the top one.  The bottom one is a magnet board I made, the magnets are clone trooper, I made them too. How fun!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out his big boy room!  May the Force be with YOU!!

Two Awards, in One Week!

Oh my it's been a good week around here, a gift from a friend and two AWARDS!  Wow! 

Tanyia at Surviving Motherhood gave me a "Stylish Blogger Award".

Susan at Tea Diary gave me a "Kreativ Blogger Award", my first.

You ladies are awesome, and I appreciate these more than words!

Here are a few fun facts about me, like you guys haven't heard enough!  lol

1.  I'm afraid of the open water, I may never go on a cruise.  The Titanic has ruined me for ocean liners.
2.  When I was pregnant with my first born, Connor, I gained 95lbs! (I weighed more than Beefcake)
3.  My favorite cartoons are Ben 10 Ultimate Alien and Avatar: Last Airbender.  I've seen every episode.
4.  I'm in LOVE with Mark Harmon and Gerard Butler
5.  If you want to make me mad, ask me the same question more than once after I've answered it. 
6.  I would love to visit Turkey and Greece.  I dream about it.
7.  Do not for any reason, HONK at me when I'm picking my kid up at school. 
8.  I have an ornery side, and I fear I will be a grumpy 'Old Lady' someday.  Watch out!

Okay, so I would like to nominate a few blogs I stalk for the Kreativ Blogger Award.

I'm sure there were actual rules to follow, but #9 about me, I'm a rule breaker!  lol

Thanks again Ladies!!! xx

Patio Table Help Needed

Here are few of the ideas I've been tossing around for my patio.

This is the patio, still waiting on the new throw pillows to be delivered.  Which little table do you think would work best?  I'm kinda partial to the red stool, but they are all cute.

Thanks for stopping by!  Any input would be helpful, even if it isn't one of these.  I'd love to know what you think! 

 I think I'm going to discontinue the Fitness Friday posts.  Now that we are having nicer weather, my Fridays are going to be filled with garage sales and junkin.  Don't worry, I'm still working out.  xx

Looky What I Found!

I went to the flea market the other day with a good friend we found NOTHING!  Yep, a whole lot of zilch.  I was pretty bummed until we went to HomeGoods, and you know, my friend had never been?  Crazy right?

I got a couple tins, they have a fun vintage feel.  My son really like this one, he's learning about Abe at school and he's his favorite President.  Funny part is that the 6 year old noticed this way up there! 

He didn't mention the one on the counter, funny how boys can see what's right in front of them!

Then I found Big Ben to go with my Eiffel Tower, and this cute message board with chandeliers.  Now I need to make some cute tacks for it. 

Check out this baby!  I've been wanting a wooden bowl for ever.  Me and my bestie answered a craigslist add, and this baby was on the lady's basement floor waiting for me!!!

Chicken towels from Joann's, 1/2 off.

This next item needs background music, or mood lighting.  I swear when I saw it sitting on the shelf at Pier 1 my heart stopped.  I didn't need to replace the lamp on the trunk, I was actually shopping for a lamp to go on the yellow buffet.  It could not be helped, I'm in love with this lamp.

Close up, yep goldish mercury glass!  I swear angels are singing some where.

I've been wanting a bottle holder forever, well for a long time, and I finally found one.  Love this, can't wait to find some cute coffee mugs to hang on  it!

Sneak peak of a project I'm working on. I like to tease you!  lol

Have a great one, thanks for stopping by and checking out my treasures!  xx
