Little Tree Climbers

Just a couple days ago, the boys decided they like climbing trees. Actually, Miles the monkey started it...

Blue Chalk Painted Accent Table

It's been awhile since I refinished this little side table and found the perfect spot for it in our new house. I just completely forgot to blog about it. And I guess since we've lived here almost three months, there's no need to call it the "new" house anymore... :-)

Friday Favorites (Back to School Edition)

It's time for a new week of Friday Favorites. I will call this the back-to-school edition!

Hope you all are enjoying these picks. It's fun compiling them. Although I think I may move to a once per month format. I don't know how bloggers keep up with a weekly post schedule when I can barely keep up with my once a week Friday Favorites!

Anyway, here we go...

North Carolina Trip

A couple weeks ago Jeremy and I took the kids to North Carolina. I am just finally getting around to blogging about it! This was our first big driving trip for the boys. It ended up being a 15 hour drive when you factor in stops and road construction. On the way there, we split it into two days. Coming back, we did all 15 hours in one day. It was pretty unbelievable how good they were in the car! Of course, we were prepared with plenty of activities, movies, and snacks, but they did great overall with minimal whining or bathroom breaks. We all really enjoyed driving through the mountains (well, except maybe Jeremy, the driver) and seeing different parts of the country.

I hope this means more road trips are forthcoming now that we know what the boys can handle!

He looks thrilled, no?

Another First Day of School in the Books

How can it be? Summer vacation is over, just like that! It was fun, but man did it go by fast. I've enjoyed seeing other "first day of school" pictures, and we had ours today.

Tyson appears pretty bored with this pose

Tyson is excited to be a first grader in a multiage classroom with first, second, and third grades together. Miles is going into 4's preschool, four mornings a week, in the classroom right next to his big brother. We have partial days this week and then start in with the regular schedule next week. It will be quite the adjustment from our very loose summer "schedule".

Friday Favorites

Hi there! I can't believe it's Friday again. This week has been a bit exasperating with the kids. I think they are sensing the end of summer and giving it one last hurrah with all their energy, which is very draining for me! However, it's still sad that school starts on Wednesday for us... :-(

Hope you all enjoy another week of picks!

Repurposed Rustic Shutters

Hi there! Today I'm sharing a quick little project to add some farmhouse charm to our new abode. Last winter I acquired a pair of vintage wood shutters from my cousin, which were used as a photography prop around Christmas time. They were red (more of a burgundy) and perfectly rustic and chippy. Now that I scaled back and am not taking pictures as often, I decided to give them new life indoors.

Recent Mom-Made Sewing Orders

Hi guys, I have resurfaced and am sewing again! I took a much-needed break during our move in early June and it just stretched out longer than I expected. Orders were slow and we were busy doing all the tasks that come along with moving, arranging, and decorating a new house.

But sure enough things have started to pick back up again, and I'm happy to be back doing what I enjoy. In addition to the orders below, I've sewn up some pajamas for Tyson and also some travel pillows for both kids.

Coming up after this will be some cute additions for a baby girl's nursery and some appliqued super hero capes. Can't wait to work on those!
