Without power tools

Sometimes we’ll do something that does not involve power tools! I know it sounds pretty crazy but every now and then we take time out to do something fun. Just in case you don’t believe me, here’s proof 🙂


Searching for a chair

I am still on a search for a chair for our reading nook in our bedroom! So every now and then I find something to add to my collection of chairs that I like.

By the way, I got an iPhone and yes it has changed my life!

Here are two chairs that I am loving:

I love the fabric, it’s the soft mirco suede. I love the 4 big buttons and the structure of the chair.

This one is stunning! I love the nail head trim on the edges and the tufting (don’t know if that is a real word or not) on the back. Of course this chair is more expensive and I just don’t know it it’s as comfy.


A tea party for two

Well the tea party was for a little more than two but it’s really for my sister and her new little one that’s on the way! If you don’t know, I am going to be an aunt in July to a new little niece.

My wonderful mother and I hosted the shower at my parents house. I have amazing aunts and a grandma that helped (they are wonderful)

I had to use a few of my skills to help decorate; I find way too many ideas on blogs and not enough time to do them all! I made my first pendant banner!

I also made a TON of tissue paper flowers to put in tea pots around the living room. (PS my sister loves all things Disney)

Here is a glimpse of what I made for my sister. Of course I had to try out a my new skills and make her a onesie with a tutu! Yes that is minni mouse on the front. Also, I made her a nursing cover!

My mom likes themes and she thought that my sisters new little one needed bunnies! I love you Mom, I hope you remember my blog address since I have told you 100 times and see this 😉

I have to give a shout out to my friend Pam, she is amazing and made the best cupcakes ever! I also have to give her credit since she was nice of enough to take all the pictures! 🙂

I get a F in blogging

Wow if I got a grade for the month of May for blogging I would be getting my first F ever! Wow thanks for still being my friends even though I have been the worst blogger, there are a few reasons why I have been MIA but for the most part we have been so busy!

A few highlights for the month of May, the bathroom is almost done! Yes we have spent every last free second on the bathroom!! I am so ready to have a life again on the weekends 🙂 We helped to host a couples shower at our home, I threw my sisters shower this past weekend at my parents house and a few other projects that have kept us busy.

Here is a small preview of the awesomeness yet to come!!

Please forgive my bad blogging for May, I promise to get better 🙂
