{I Really Shouldn't Be Doing This }

Because frankly I really don't have time, but I can't help it! Addison's birthday is on Sunday, yes Halloween and she will be 3 so I'm scrambling to get this dress and a Halloween one done. 
What I should be doing is:
*Packing for our trip to Georgia (we leave on Monday)
*Cleaning the house (again) 
*Cleaning up dinner
*Drawing up 10 Stitchery's
*Wrapping presents
*Birthday decor made 

Need I go on???? No? 
Good because I don't want to, I just hope I get everything done that needs done. Well I better get off of here & get something done.

Have a FABULOUS Weekend!

{ My Favorite Family! }

I was able to take my friends family pictures while I was in Idaho a while back and here are a few of them.   
They seriously have some cute kiddos!
I love LOVE this one of the kids with their Great Grandma.

I'm by NO means a pro but can only HOPE that I am getting a little better each time.

{ Bunkie Board 15 Minute Makeover }

We have a set of bunk beds that used to belong to my Brothers kids, then they handed it down to us & our boys used them. The boys have officially handed them over to Brinley & Addison and this is what they look like, well the Bunkie board that is.
Terrible huh! 
Brinley told me I have to fix it, because frankly she thinks it's ugly and I tend to agree with her.
So I got out my supplies which included: some duct tape, a staple gun & some inexpensive fabric from Wal-Mart and set to work.

1. I clipped off all the excess fabric that was around the edges.
2. Taped all the holes in the cardboard.
3. Then put the new fabric on and stapled the dickens out of it.
This it took about 15 minutes but oh the transformation!

The best part was the price tag,
 I only used a little over 2 yards but I bought 3 at $1.00 a yard and 
So essentially this project cost me $2.00!!
Brinley appreciates her new view and I think it turned out pretty cute, even if my lines aren't totally straight.

{ 6 Years Ago Today }

Yes, 6 years ago I was doing this.....  
And snuggling this......
I can't believe that he is turning 6 today.
Last years 5th b-day He seriously is just an awesome kid. He's got a mind of his own and a fashion sense, leave it to this kid to wear a cowboy hat with everything he owns. :)
But I wouldn't change him for the world. 
Well I better get back to prepping for his party. He is all about Toy Story at the moment so a Toy Story Party it is.....
Happy 6th Birthday Corbin we love you!
