Prom Weekend

We had not one but TWO Proms last weekend….Malory’s Prom was Friday night…Cameron’s Saturday night…

Cameron and Malory have been together about 4 years….I know they are mine…but my heart just swells every time I see them together….such a beautiful couple…




Elizabeth and Malory….they are first cousins and Elizabeth is my best friend’s daughter….we are all family…I was there when BOTH of these girls were born and never in a million years would I have predicted that Cameron and Malory would meet one summer at the beach….Cameron was 14 and Malory was 13….I KNOW!  These girls are beautiful on the inside as well as the outside….


Evan, Elizabeth, Malory, Cam….


Buds since they were 5 years old….yeah I cried about three different times Saturday night….

James, Jace, Cameron, Dakota….


This is really how they like to roll!


I heart her….


Next up….Senior Week in Panama City Beach, Florida…..

Of course I am going too, what do you think I am….NUTS?

Sneak Peek…

I have been crazy busy working on my bedroom…I said I was just going to do a few things and Springify it a bit, but we all know that one thing leads to another to another to another…..the one thing that is finished is the bed skirt…


Love the fabric….


If you have read my blog at all, you probably know that I “think” I can do anything…..even sew….HA!

Alas, I CANNOT!  I get so frustrated it isn’t even funny….this bedskirt, which is stapled on a board which I slide between the mattress and box springs took me….I’m not even going to tell you how long it took me…..

okay, I will….


I am an idiot in the sewing world!  I admit it!  The simplest things take me the longest time to figure out…I swear, Steve get’s so upset when I work myself up into such a tizzy!  By the time it was done, I had thrown the staple gun, a million staples littered the den…(because they wouldn’t go in the board) and I gently “tossed” a hammer…..JUST BE’IN REAL!

But I did accomplish the said task at hand….


Sewing machines…….hate me…

A lil peak at what else is going on in there….



How did that get in there??  My cutie patootie Cammie Pie :)


Pitching….they won….YAY!!


This weekend is Prom weekend and Cameron and his girlfriend Malory, go to different high schools and as luck would have it BOTH of their proms are this weekend….one is Friday night…the other Saturday night…busy weekend ahead…..

Stay tuned….I am going to attempt to sew again this weekend at some point…..

Lord help me….and Steve!

Her Majesty….

I am making some changes in my bedroom and had taken my BIG boa wreath that Seth got me for Christmas off the wall and laid it on my bed….when I came back, this is what I found…

Chloe taking a little nap…


She was really OUT!


May I help you?


Cats…..gotta love’em!

I wanted to lighten up the bedroom somewhat, a little more Springy….I am trying to get everything pulled together and finished which is difficult when you have to work!  I hate that!  And I am the WORLD’S WORST for doing “the look for less”….sometimes that is just a pain in the rear!!!  But I am trying to persevere!  ONWARD!

Hopefully, I can get it all pulled together and get some photos posted….

Hope you are all having a great week!

Spring? Where did you go?

We have been having Glorious weather and wonderful temps in the 70’s for the last couple of weeks!  We thought that Spring had surely arrived….I even bought a couple of ferns for my front porch…..

and then…

…Spring went away!  We are back in the 40’s and it is raining and yucky!

However, I did do a little Spring prep around the house because I am SO READY!!!

This is the table in the foyer/dining room….




Kitchen island…






Hope you are having more “Spring” than we are right now!

Thank you for stopping by :)

Fluffed up…and Springified….

I managed to get the dining room table “dressed” in between work and baseball games and all of that stuff that keeps me in a twist most of the time….

I had bought the fabric to make a runner, however, I found this one at TJ Maxx for 9.99, loved it, bought it….actually I got two….one for the table and one for the buffet…


I did have to alter it as it was waaaaay to long for my table….and I added the

trim …

love me some beady fringe….



I  also found the rabbit at TJ…..



This buffet is the next thing that will be replaced in here….I am on the hunt…







Thank you for stopping by…..have a great week!

I am linking up today with Linda at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays…..please stop by the party!
