All Around Updates

ARg!  I'm so bad about writing blog posts..  I love blogging, but most days I just don't have the time/energy to sit down and write..  I have stuff running through my head all the time that I want to say.  If I would just be disciplined to sit and write.  It's kind of like getting pedicures for me..I want to get them (need to get them) but I seldom take the time. Weird analogy? Probs.

So I just wanted to share a few things that have been happening around here this month~~

A couple of weeks ago I found this little guy and brought him home for my dining room

I guess you would call it a buffet?  There are shelves behind the doors so it's really not a dresser, it must be a buffet - so anyway, we sooo did not like the paint job on it and right away went to Lowe's and bought all the tools we needed to strip it!

Well, we got more than we bargained for - a full post to come.  We are still working on that thing!

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen some of the other activities we've had going on - Robbie's guitar class had their Spring Concert, and of course he was awesome.

And we prepared a Passover seder on the first night of Passover..

I don't think it's suppose to be a joyous occasion, but we always have fun with the kids, singing silly songs and each person reciting part of the service.  This year we were missing three of our kids due to travels and being away at college, so that part was a bummer - but that's what happens when you have grown kids!

Today I'm going to get back to working on stripping the buffet.  I also have another small table project that I can actually complete this weekend..  more Rub n' Buff involved!  It is going to be a gorgeous day in Georgia!  What do you have going on this weekend?  Or month?  If you're anything like me things do tend to be month-long projects - have a great one!

Love, Kelli

Welcome to the first ever fashion-related post from yours truly ~  Normally I just talk about the little projects I do around the house, and once in a while throw in some stuff about my kids - but when I saw this fun post here at Pinterest Told Me To I knew I had to join in the fun!

I mean I love Pinterest just as much as anybody - maybe too much!  I am always finding time to hop over there and scroll through to find outfits, furniture, recipes - obviously the list goes on and on!  But like I have confessed before - I do a LOT of looking and just a little bit of DOING - so when I saw this pin, I knew I could re-create it!

This is a fun, relaxed, weekend-kind of outfit!  I wish I had her awesome selfie picture skills!  Check out her blog - lots of fun outfits!

See, I just couldn't get the pic to look like hers..  When my son saw this he said "Mom, I didn't know there was a place to post pictures of a mom trying to look like a 20-year old.".. Really?  yeah.

Okay so side-by-side.. not too bad, eh??

Yeay for Pinterest!!  What have you been inspired to create?  Did you find it on Pinterest?  I'm going to share more soon and I would love to hear about you!

Love, Kelli
