glider makeover

How cool is this? I have the same glider chair. It is SUPER comfy and great for nursing, but I bet I could attack this project for baby #2's room. I have never slipcovered a chair, but this would be a great project. I am really excited to try it out and find some cool fabric. Oh, wait...there is not baby #2 yet. I guess I need to get preggo first! =)

picture tag

I was tagged by Kelly to post a picture.

This is the 4th picture in the 4th folder on my computer:

This is a picture of Evelyn when she was 10 months old. I remember this day by the snotty nose and glazed-over eyes. She was REALLY sick this week. I mean 104 degree fever sick. Anyway, this day I thought I could slack off and instead of cutting her waffle into little pieces give it to her whole. After I took the picture, I had to take it away from her since she was taking huge pieces and cramming them into her mouth and nearly gagging herself. What? Come on, I doubt I am the only mom that has tried to cut some corners in the kitchen! =)

Now it is your turn. (kelly, I switched back to the original rules...only because the 1st picture in the 1st folder was was even more boring than the 4th in the 4th folder!)

  • Go to your 4th folder where you store your photos.

  • Select your 4th picture

  • Post the picture with an explanation and link it back to your tagger.

  • Tag 4 people (or as many as you want) to do the same!!

I tag:

Morgan G.

Sarah M.

Carissa V.

Melissa H.

Go forth and share your photos!

Thank you Kroger

I am usually an HEB girl, but this week Kroger had some deals on things I would buy anyway and their "10 item Mega Event". Can you see my total savings? Cha ching!

Sorry HEB. I will be back next week. I can't miss all your free samples two weeks in a row! =)

Just checking out what is on the other side of the gate

Tuesday, February 17, 2009


Evelyn was excited to see her friend today, but I am not sure I can say the opposite is true.

Evelyn: "Woo Hoo! He is here to play!"
Bobby: "Oh no...what did I get myself into?"

Evelyn: "Maybe if I just give him a few taps of the head, he will get excited!"

Bobby: "When is my mom picking me up again?"

Bobby: "Maybe if I had my face she will go away."
Evelyn: " there?"

I interrupt the decorating...

Funny thing Evelyn started doing yesterday. When I ask her, "Who's Mommy's big girl?", she raises her hand. HA! I love it. She is so funny. But what is better is that she waits for either Michael or I to clap for her after she does it. She is at a great age.

another decorating!

Ok, so thanks to all of your comments, I am going to go with the green chair (and possibly make a slipcover with the help of Erin!). Anyway, I have learned that decorating is really not my thing, so I think I will make the rest of my decorating decisions a "community decision"! That is if you guys don't mind. How does that sound? That means I need your help. Liz...that includes you too! =)

Here is my next question for you all. I found three prints at Michaels the other day and picked them up because I liked the colors. They are 16x20. I found three dark brown frames to match our new dining furniture at Target. Michael said the prints are "girly" (that word gets thrown around a lot here when anything with flowers are involved). But, I kinds think the husband may be right? Plus, I think they look like they could go in a teenage girl's bedroom. Anywho, that is why I need your input. Do these look ok? BE HONEST! I already have two votes for "yes" form Morgan and Erin W. who saw them in person, and a "no" vote from my mom and husband.

There are a few things to take into consideration though. The prints are still wrapped in plastic and just leaning up against the frames. So it may be hard to get a feel for how they really look. They would be hung above the sideboard in a row of three. I think you can tell form one of the pics that the chairs are a dark turquoise blue and the wood is a really dark brown. I was planning on doing accents of orange in the dining room to coordinate with the turquoise chairs (and yes, there is a sticker on the corner of the prints that says "sassy chic"...i think that might be a giveaway that they are designed for a teenager!) =)

So comment away. If you vote no though, what do you think I should put there instead??
