Oh, Jer!

Here is a conversation from tonight and this is why I am always laughing with Jeremy.

Me: “Someone said something about us being an adorable couple today.  And, it isn’t the first time I have heard that.”
Jer: “Really?  Huh.  Do they know that we don’t like each other?”
Me: “Doubt it.”

Isn’t he a sweetheart?  I do love him.  And, he does love me.  Promise.

Speaking of.  I am going to show off what Jeremy did a few months ago and I forgot to talk about.  He took an old coke machine and completely revamped it.  It looks amazing and my dad loved his birthday gift!
Isn’t my hubby talented?!  He restored another one for our patio and it looks superb. :)

Don’t fret!

I am alive and well; just SUPER busy lately!  I hosted my very first trunk show this past weekend and that took up a lot of my time.  This week I have been at an AP Institute and it was amazing.  I got so many great things to bring back to the classroom, so I am excited for that!  Even though it was a lot of fun, I am glad it is over… such long days!

Anywhom, I am off to do some work around the house because I am way behind on laundry and such.  But, Happy 90th Birthday to my grandma!!

1st Timer at Canton

Yesterday a few of my fellow 7th grade teachers and I headed out to the fun that is Canton!  We were so excited to just walk around and see everything.  I had nothing in mind to buy, just if anything jumped out at me.  Which, was great because I wasn’t stressed about finding that perfect item.  It was pretty hot outside, mid 90’s I think, but at least there was a slight breeze, so we didn’t feel like death on a stick.  It was acres and acres and acres of funness!
Being indoors was LOVELY!  Although, at times it was hotter inside than outside.
This guys were so much fun!  I wish you could see that everything dealt with rocks… so neat!

How fun is this place?!

So, I literally bought one thing for me and one thing for my nephew’s big boy room.  His duvet has owls in it and I found these guys and thought cute cute!  Jen can paint them or keep them as is.
(They are cuter in person, promise!)  I got these decor balls (haha sounds awful.. or maybe my mind is in the gutter?) that are green and I just loved for some reason.  Here is what I did with them.  I also added in some potpourri items that I wasn’t using to complete the look.  All in all it cost less than $20!  Splendid!

I have two more that I am not quite sure what I should do with.  I am sure I will figure it out.  But I like how it turned out!  Here are a few pictures of Shari, Kerri, Angela, and myself.  I love my SMS buddies!!

Angela hit the jackpot and found the exact headboard that she was looking for for her son’s bedroom and it was only $10!!  She also got the chair and stool to paint to match his new train themed bedroom.  And, how fun is her hat?!

Jeremy drove me around yesterday after I got back from Canton to try to find plates to put on the chargers in the dining room.  I just needed to find something and I was tired of looking for white freaking plates!  They were not white enough and I think Jeremy was getting a tad annoyed with this.  As he would say, “You get something in your head and you don’t even know if you will ever be able to find it.”  True, but I always come up with something!  Crate and Barrel had these plates that were super different and I just had to get them!

I like that I can use these plates with ANY color and they will last a long time.  The dining room table looks better, but I still have things to do.  It will have to wait though because I need to do touch paint in almost every room!  I am having a little gathering in a few weeks and I feel like I have so much to do.  Who wants to come and do a deep clean at my house?! :)

Already 100!

Summer is here and it is already incredibly hot outside.  We should reach triple digits this weekend… super.  Just in time for us to sweat to death at Canton.  I am really excited about going and I will take pictures and post more.  Here are my summer goals!

Get Into Shape
I work out at least 5 days a week now but I am really trying hard to tone up.  I am taking more strength classes and I am seeing a slight difference in my massive muscles in my arms and shoulders.  Can you sense the sarcasm there?

Start and Complete our Nightstands
Remember our Craigslist find?  We need to sand, paint, antique, etc…

Complete Zebra Chairs
Can you see where I am going with these?  That was coat one, I have done at least 3 coats.  I think one more than poly and dunzo!

Touch up Paint around the House
I have so much touch up paint that I need to do… I don’t know where these spots are coming from!  Maybe that will be a project for this tomorrow and this weekend.

What are your summer goals??
