I'm back!

Hello friends! It's been awhile!! We have moved into our old farmhouse and have been here for one year now. It has been more overwhelming than I could have ever imagined. I feel like we are settled enough now that I can squeeze in a little free time for blogging. I will be blogging mostly about our farmhouse renovation adventures and have started another blog called the Fanciful farmhouse I hope you will join me there as the handy hubby and I renovate our old farm one room at at time!! I look forward to catching up with old friends!

Happy Memorial day everyone! I'm sure many of you are enjoying the beautiful sunshine and getting all of your flowers planted. I know many of us are struggling with tighter budgets these days. I wasn't even sure if I would plant flowers in my boxes this year. Then I came up with this. I bought one hanging basket of geraniums and cut it down the center. I added some vines from the yard to fill in the gaps and voila! I think it looks pretty good and it cost less than $15. We have been so busy here with boys and baseball, end of the school year activities, and that new and very naughty puppy!! Wishing you all a Happy Memorial weekend!!!!

So, If you have been here before you might remember that our house is for sale. Well, I was very excited yesterday because we actually had a showing! I cleaned the house from top to bottom...SPOTLESS! The last thing I always do before leaving the house is make sure all of the lights are on, toilet seats down etc. etc. Note to time check all chalkboards because you have naughty boys lurking around the house!! I smell...the perfect touch! Totally changing the subject, I'm sure you will be very happy to know that I bought some cute, springy towels for the kitchen. Due to my love affair with the hot glue gun, I went all out and glued a tail on the bunny. Perfect! Now, you won't even be able to believe this.... Hubby actually thought he would wipe his dirty hands on these??? I screamed and scolded...he thought it was very funny.

I just want to look at them. I don't want to have to wash them. That's OK right?

Since it's Sunday today and spring is in the air, I thought I would set the breakfast table all pretty!

Things are really waking up here! The grass is greening up and the Mama birds are looking very fat!

I just love Spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow! It's hard to believe that it has been a good month since my last post! Due to my work schedule, my husbands new job with crazy hours, plus three kids in school and after school activities....I feel like there is just not enough time in the day! We did however take some time off for a much needed vaca to the Sunshine state!!! We had a great time and I thought I'd share a few photos. It took some persuading to get the hubby to let me post this pic of him with his shirt off.Below are my three with their little cousin Mikaia. The dolphins swam right along the shore that night. They were beautiful!
Here is the girl with her cousin Bella.

The beach and the boardwalk on the Gulf of Mexico.

It's nice to be back home and I'm looking forward to catching up with you all!! Have a great weekend!
