Summer Lovin’

It’s happening fast!  I cannot believe it is already the middle of June!  I feel like May whizzed by before I could even flip my calendar over from April.  We have had a couple of visits from the grandparents and between those, and the yard and house projects, things have just been in high gear.  I must reflect back on one thing and that is Mother’s Day.  I now have a new appreciation for this holiday and will say it’s better than all the rest combined.  The Mister got the Little Guy in the morning so I could sleep in (Sleep = the greatest gift on Earth!) and then my boys made me breakfast in bed.  Later, they took me out for a nice brunch with some friends.  All in all it was a low key, but very lovely day.


(Here I am with my Guys!)

That afternoon we also ran to the home improvement store and bought the plants for this little patch out back:


(Here is a shot of our sad old flower bed on the back side of the house.  More on this yard project later!)

Shortly after working on our soon to be veggie garden I started the DIY project in the dining room and you all know the rest.  That room is still sucking away at my time, but looks to be finished up soon.  I just wish I was moving through June with a neat and clean home instead of the DIY disaster zone we currently live in.  Soon, soon I keep telling myself.  I am sure as soon as the dining room is finished I will want to jump on something else, but I am still going to keep my eye on the prize.

I hope all the mothers out there had a lovely day too and all you DIY’ers (inside and out) are having fun in the sun!

Such a cute family!

I can't wait to see the dining room finished. Did you decide which curtain fabric to use? I think I like the large medallions.

I know how frustrating is to live amidst the chaos of DIY projects. Our remodeling/redecorating adventures never seem to move at anything above a slow crawl. LOL

I love the picture of you with your husband and little guy! How lovely! And so glad you were able to enjoy a very nice day!

Yes, and I want to see the finished dining room and the fabric you chose!
