Lately n stuff...

Had a hard time getting a good close up. Got this lovely Jack bracelet from my friend, Annette. His picture is on the other side.

Hanging with the C family for the Big Time Rush Movie premiere.
Tons of fun and lotsa groovy singing.

I never did take a before shot...but this is the after shot. Decoupaged coat rack for the shorter people of the house.

This was Will and Ethan's dresser when they were little. Then it was Levi's. Now it's empty and back home, just waiting for me to do something crafty to it. Down with Noah's ark and up with something new and cute, so I can use it for Molly.

Speaking of she is, helping Ethan make some fried eggs.

Funny kids, making some amazing faces. love 'em.

This is our new pub table. it seats 8. Levi told me we had enough spots for Jack to sit here with us. mmmmm. I wish, buddy. thanks for thinking of him. See those yellow walls? they are going buh bye. I've finally chosen my palette and will be sure to post pix when I'm done.
Happy Monday.
I'm so tired for some reason. Probably because I run, run, run all the time, and when I'm not running here or there, I'm here, exercising, trying to get my booty trimmed down and drop some of this Jack weight. not that I wanna shed the Jack weight but it's time for me to take care of my body and teach my kids that it's ok to do so.

Anyways, I'm sure you wanted to know that.
I have so many blog posts rolling around in my head. I am hoping to get on here this week and next to get caught up.

I might need to take a nap first. with the weather being as awesome as it has been, it's been hard to sit still. Gotta get out there and take advantage.

Spring is coming...
tomorrow. it can only get better from here, right?

see you later, taters.

I like the coat rack. Now, I am waiting to see what you come up with for the dresser. Happy Spring to you, Tory

First of all, I LOVE the coat rack. Jealous!

I'm good friends with Celia Barnes. She made a pendant for your sweet JOY baby boy.

I wanted to share something I do, also for bereaved mothers. -----> This is a link to a project I started in honor of our own boy we lost in 2009 to Anencephaly. If you are interested, I would be more then happy to help you create something.

Your family is beautiful. Your story has touched me, and I have enjoyed reading about you and your loved ones today.

Britt, I hope to get the painting officially done very soon (ha ha, you've got to stay home to get anything done, ya know??) and get some pix up soon. <3
NZ, what color have you gone with?? I'm all about beachy house colors...I was inspired by the (tacky) furniture at my parents' condo and bright, cheery. maybe kinda gawdy. hee hee...wanna see my dresser...Levi used to be so cute and tiny.
I'm counting on that, Lori! I am sitting up and listening to you...if you say so, it MUST be.
Misty, thanks for visiting my blog...I've actually been checking out your wall hanging name plaques. BEAUTIFUL!! what a beautiful thing you do for grieving families. and you are so right, I love to see Jack's name everywhere!
Happy spring to you too, Annette. And everyone.
Tory, I am atta loss on that dresser. It might have to wait till I get done painting, though I'm so scatterbrained, that I paint, then move onto another stupid project. Such a ding dong I am!
hugs and love to all of you, thanks for hanging out with me at my blog!
