President's Day

Yesterday went by so quickly. Mark was off school so we were able to get a few chores done around the house. We have been contemplating a project that involves our front door and decided to take the plunge! (I will show pictures soon) ;) so we had to make a Lowe's run. While we were there be also bought a new mailbox. It's the little things that make being a homeowner fun...right!?!? When we bought the house, 3 years ago, there was a dent in the mailbox. We have always just put one of those cute paper covers in it. By cute I mean a St. Louis Cardinals one because that's the only thing Mark would allow. Ha! The cover has since turned pink from weather so it was time to either buy a new cover or a new mailbox. This time we chose mailbox. It's nothing fancy...we already had the vinyl post so all we needed to replace was the box part. We purchased another white one and Mark had it replaced before he even came inside this afternoon. Fun huh?!?!

My parent's were up here for an appt. and my g-pa was with them. They stopped by for a bit and we had lunch together before they had to leave for their appt. We had a great visit even though it was short. I don't have any pictures from lunch. ;( Wyatt was good at the restaurant too! He played, smiled, and ate puffs the entire time. I hope he continues to be so well behaved in pubic, one can only hope right!?!? 

I haven't posted about my few items I picked up at IKEA this month. I found some really fun things:

I mentioned the paper and table top holder in my last post. What a great deal!!!
I knew we would be painting on the paper so I couldn't go without these:

$3.99 for the 2-pack! I am pretty sure they are supposed to be bibs but I am using them as paint smocks (sp?) It's the teacher in me...can't paint without protection right!?!?!?
I also picked up a few items for my living room:

I have been accenting with yellow and a touch of green so these were perfect. Here is a picture of how I used them....
(phone picture=bad quality)

I will be adding this vase FOR SURE next month.
This is also on my shopping list:
We just got back last week and I am ready to go again! My parent's aren't able to help this trip because they will be running in a half marathon that weekend! GO GO GO!!!! So Mark's parent's are going to watch Wyatt. Mark has a friend in Chicago that we may stay with Friday night so we don't have to leave at 3:30AM on Saturday morning. We still have a few weeks to figure out our plans!


  1. Just wanted to let you know I am praying for your heart tonight.

  2. Isn't IKEA amazing? I love it!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
