Check me out....
I'm getting a May post up before the end of the first week!
Cinco De Mayo is a few days,
Are you ready?
I just reminded myself, I need to buy some tequila tomorrow!!
I got a head start on the fiesta and made some Sombrero cookies the other day.
I know.. they like more like boobies than sombreros!
Note to self:
next year, make some for Mardi Gras!

Oops. It's April and I don't have a blog post up!
I've started this post a while ago and it just sat.
I've had so many things going on that I wasn't sure which to post about.
And dang, Time is flying by!
First, I hope that you all had a happy Easter. We had a great day here.
Easter Sunday was also our oldest daughters 30th birthday so we had a fun birthday/Easter celebration.
Also, I can't believe that we are parents of a 30 year old. It's kinda freaky.
As I mentioned in the last post, I did paint the dining room and I am halfway through spring cleaning.
It will probably be summer before it's done. And.... I swear, I need to do-overs already!
If you are on my social media than you already know how obsessed I am with my latest project.
I am sitting at it now and I will repeat it...
I. Freaking. Love. It.
You wanna see right?
I have wanted a "real" island in the kitchen for sometime. Unless we are dying eggs or carving pumpkins, we never all sit around the kitchen table anymore. Anyhow, I've been watching lots of DIY tutorials on how to build one using kitchen cabinets and while I liked them, You know my style is a little funky. I wanted it to be unique. A few years ago I saw an island made from a dresser and that's always been an idea in the back of my mind. So, along with the cabinets, I've also been searching for the perfect dresser ~ just in case.
Not mine.. but isn't this cute! And all of those drawers for extra storage!
A few weeks ago, while on another hunt for supplies that I would need to make something, Michelle and I stopped into one of our favorite little consignment shops and a piece just jumped out at me. Every about it was perfect. Look at the baby drawers at the top. I loved it!! I didn't buy it that day, but I thought about it all night long and I went back the next morning and bought it.
Not the greatest picture, but its a great reclaimed wood table that was made by veterans.
No worries, the table was going to go to good use. I'm not completely getting rid of it.
I disassembled it and the table top got sanded and restained .
you know where I'm going with this!
I saved the feet and base ~ I know I will think of something to use them for.
I can't wait for you to see my new island
Before I show you, I will tell you that I originally planned to paint it white. I know that green is in style, but I really wasn't sure about it. We decided to keep everything as it was and it changes the look of the whole kitchen. And, wait until you see the pot-rack clock that's been hanging in the kitchen for years - it pops now!!
Okay, enough babbling.. You wanna see it?

I'm still creating and playing around the house.
This weekend I focused more on the tiny house .. wait until you see how cute it is!!!
On Sunday morning I scrambled a bunch of eggs so that I could have the egg shells to paint and make into little planter pieces for the Easter Table.
Aren't they adorable!!!
Here's a little video of the table decor all put together.

I thought I posted this.. oops!
Have you all been attacking those spring projects?
I was doing pretty good with the spring cleaning until yesterday.
It's been grey and rainy again and I honestly can not function on rainy days.
Since it's been so Ughhh outside, Yesterday and today I just focused on working on some crafty projects. I found this cute and fun idea on YouTube last night and I just happened to have all of the supplies needed to create them.

Yay! It's officially Spring!
After a week of dragging my tail, I had the best busy weekend.
What did we do? Nothing.
I cleaned, ate a bowl of ice cream and I pushed through my lazy spells and made the most of the decent weather.
And I slept ~ at night!
I spent most of my time on the porch - changing things AGAIN.
I decided that I am going to keep the branches up all year, so I removed all of those pink flowers (I wasn't really a fan of the pink) and I replaced them with green leaves.
