WOW…SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED…

March Madness for sure! We finally moved to South Carolina, same town we used to live in a few years ago.  The house is beautiful and super comfortable.  We are slowly getting new furniture…and I am super excited.  Every package that arrives brings all sorts of joy to my heart.  I decided to start with the living room, I chose gray, yellow and white as the base for the room, and it looks beautiful.  Then I moved to the big dining room.  I am obsessed with farm tables, so I decided to order a big one from World Market, and it arrived today.  I had a hard time picking out chairs, so those will arrive next Tuesday and so will a painting to hang on the wall.   After that arrives I should be able to take pictures and show you that beautiful room.

Our house in Mississippi has been on the market for 10 days and we already accepted an offer.  Needless to say that I feel blessed.  I feel the presence of my God every second of every day.  Often times we take things for granted, often times we do not understand things, but we must trust HIM always…because HE knows what is best ALWAYS.

Always,

All Kinds of Crazy…

Let’s the crazy begin!!!  Hubby is on his way to MS, movers will start packing tomorrow at 8 AM, then loading Friday.  Bon Jovi’s concert is Thursday and I am beyond excited! All sorts of craziness going on in my house.  At least I am done with this quarter and I am expecting two A’s, so I am super happy about that. This quarter was a little bit tougher than last, but I worked hard and conquered my employment law class.

Now is just a matter of being patient while others touch and go through your stuff while packing everything up.  Tonight when Jason gets home, he can help me re-sort what is going with us in our vehicles and we should just sit and wait for others to do the big job.

Both kids are home, is Spring Break here in Mississippi, so they will be home while their stuff is pack, I can’t wait to see JJ’s face when everything starts moving.  He is so excited about going back to his neck of the woods. Now, Janie is another story, she is sad to go, she has a group of friends that are more like sisters to her and she has been dealing with emotions for the last two weeks.  I know is going to be super hard on her, and as a mom, I hate to see her struggle.  I know her friends in SC will make her feel welcome and she should be able to be content soon.  A good thing for her is that she will be 16 this summer, and she is a pro at traveling, so she should be able to hop on a plane and visit her friends in MS.

Life has been normal for us, we have been blessed beyond our wildest imagination, but we have dealt with our fair share of struggles. Needless to say, that in order to have a family one must want/fight to have it.  Walking away is easy, anyone can do that, staying together and sorting through things, that is what makes relationships stronger, a family is a relationship between people with different wants and needs, personalities, and desires, one must respect each individual and help them achieve their needs, wants and desires in order to make this thing called family…work!

Next time I post, I will be in South Carolina.

Always,

Pinterest Favorites This Week: Ideas For The New House

Hello!

I’ve always been a super fan of Pinterest.  I love the ideas, the hints, the recipes, etc.  Since I am moving into a new home, I decided to share with you all, some of the ideas I plan on doing once I am in my new house.  The ideas are random, from gardening to decorating, to cooking. 

I hope you enjoy the ideas, and if you have some ideas you want to share with me, please do 🙂

Let’s start with my dining room area, I have a nice size dining room in my new house, and I am having a custom-made farm table built.  I want to have, one bench and then just buy some dining chairs.  Below is an idea of what I want my table and chairs to look like.

Dining room: Avondale (Macy's) table & bench with fabric chairs from Target. Kate Spade runner/Pottery Barn lanterns:

The next area I want to decorate is the living room.  I just ordered a brand new living room set from Rooms To GO, the color is gray, and I want to have blue and yellow decor to make the room classy and beautiful.  Below is an idea of what the gray and yellow looks like.

"Indigo & Citron Living Room" herringbone curtains, gray tufted love seat, ikat blue chairs, citron green/yellow accents, pebble cream rug, wood tables, subway art, wooden clock:

Thinking about these color scheme…again, I just want to add some accents not have a rainbow looking area. 

teenage girl bedroom paint colors:

Lastly, I want to have a small vegetable garden.  To be honest all I can grow is tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and zucchini.  I wish I could venture into other things like lettuce, celery, etc, but then I have a reality check, I just want to grow the things we eat the most without making myself a gardening slave.  Below is an idea of what my garden MAY end up looking like, maybe smaller, well, definitely smaller 🙂

Deer Proof Vegetable Garden Ideas On Deer Proof Garden Fence Garden:

Those are some of the ideas I have, there would be plenty of others, but I think those three areas are a good start.  What ideas do you have? What was the first thing you did when you move into your new house?

Always,
