I think I found the color shingle{s} I'll be using for my roof.

Ignore the gold plate at the bottom of the door I'm not crazy about it. Most likely coming off when I get the keys.

I love the porch on this house because of the arches . You can barely see if because of the shrubs. Luckily one of my brothers has a lawn business and can help me maintain the shrubs as well as the yard. Oh and I only have to pay him in double cheeseburgers from McDonalds. {ha}

Which one do YOU think will look best on this house?

The neighbor to the right has a brownish color and on the left has a blueish {is that a word} color

I chose this one and then my interior designer sister also agreed! Maybe I could have a career as an interior designer. But I refuse to go back to school! {I won't tell you that I spelt school wrong just now before I got it right}

Just Thursday


Outside my window.. my quite neighborhood.

The time is.. 8:54 pm

Today I feel.. anxious that tomorrow is FRIDAY

I am thinking.. I need to make a trip to IKEA soon so buy a few things for my house. One thing on the list for sure is a computer chair!

At the moment I am thankful.. for a new day

I am going... to bed shortly! Didn't get in my after work nap

I am wearing.. a dress with cami under it

I wish.. there were no worries in the world

I am reading.. nothing at the moment

I am working on.. getting the energy to clean my room

I am hoping.. for a miracle.

I am hearing.. Hudson sing "Oh How He Loves Us" isn't that the truth!

Around the house.. my room is the only one that needs to be picked up

I bet you didn't know.. my niece thinks my real name is Enna. {actually you probably do know that}

One of my favorite.. body wash is johnson & johnson night time! Makes me sleep like a baby.

My weekend plans include.. sleeping in on Saturday then tackling this room. It won't clean itself and I need to get ready for the BIG move

Be sure to visit Abby over at Murdock's Mama and join in on the Just Thursday fun!

Sweet Girl

This girl could not be any cuter!

Don't you agree?

Because she wants me to share

& I seem to ALWAYS give in!

Summer Nights

Tonight the family went swimming!

It was the perfect night to get together, eat pizza then jump in the water.

How cute it little man! I mean I love this face!

Both H & R have no fear of the water! H had to warm up a little before she took her floaties off.

And in no time she was jumping in!

And more jumping....

It was almost time for little mans bed time but he had such a fun time. And so did big sister if you couldn't tell!

This is Sadie. Or as Haley once said Tadie and Sucker.

The perfect shot! haha! This will definitely get framed for my brother Josh!

And here is Tucker! King of the world!

Fun was had by all and now we're all EXHAUSTED!

Who knew that going to Lowe's

& Home Depot would be so stressful!

My new house has 4 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms that need paint! I felt like the paint world was taking over me! I had no idea what color to choose for my living room much less my bedroom!

As for the ceiling fans- Wow- where do I start? I'll take the cheapest one thank you very much! {kidding} I found a few i liked but wasn't crazy over.

I tried to look for a light to go over my kitchen sink.... I doubt I would choose any of those.

Now these! These are the blinds I WANT!

Now onto the refrigerators I know I don't want stainless steel since I'll have H&R living with me.I wouldn't want tiny finger prints all over the front of the doors. So i think I'll stick with the black side by side one.

I don't think my house has a mailbox or not and judging by the picture below I don't see one. Which one do you like?

I think it's time to bring in my sister who has a degree in interior design. Good thing that she's coming to live with me! Free advice!!!

Here are my NEIGHBORS!!! I love them already...{ not to mention it's my best friend from high school & they are about to welcome sweet baby girl Avery in September!

And this... well this is my lovely abode. When I get the keys to my house I'll be sure to take everyone on a tour!

This picture is for all the girls who helped Amber with the garage sale a few weeks ago. I had an 80 year old lady come to me and wanted to buy 4 of these double light switch covers. She wanted to give me .50 for all 4 packs but when I asked her for .50 each she told me she could buy ALL of them brand new for .50. Well she's wrong they were .44 EACH at Home Depot. That lady really did rip me off even though it was a garage sale!

Meet Coal

Tonight, my friend Ashley and her husband became a family of 3.

Ashley is one happy new mommy.

Let me introduce you to the sweetest new puppy around. His name is Coal!

He gives the best puppy kisses. Cuddles like no other. Hops in the grass. Is worn out after 5 minutes outside. Has the cutest little face with a white goatee. Also has a spot on his back paw that is white. And a white spot on his chest. He's all around so handsome!

I'm his newly adoptive Aunt Enna!

Wordless Wednesday

Cupcakes In A Jar

I had a few people ask me how I made these! It's simple & fun. First I went to Wal-Mart and bought 24 mason jars- cleaned them out- and left them to dry. {Like this}

Then I started mixing the cakes batter together- measured out a cup of batter into 4 or 5 different bowls- then put food coloring on them to give it the vibrant colors. {sorry no picture here} Filled 2 cupcake pans {24 slots} full without the wrappers and baked them.

Next, I started making the homemade icing. I got the recipe here and its absolutely to die for! Except I only add 1 stick of butter and 8 ounces of cream cheese in the icing.

After the cupcakes cooled off I cut them in half- added a layer of icing in the jar-topped with half a cupcake-more icing- then the top of the cupcake- and added -yes- MORE icing!

My mom helped me close each jar then held the jars while I added the cute little ribbons. Put them all in a basket and it's a cute little gift for everyone to take home with them.

You only turn 16 once

Saturday, my little cousin Chelsey turned 16!!!!!! I remember when she was just a newborn and now she's a beautiful young lady living her life for Christ. Her parents gave her a Sweet 16 because every 16 year old needs a party. AND a deejay! Her birthday was actually in June but all {or most} of her friends were going on our church's mission trip to Argentina.

How darling is this cake? One of my 2nd cousins {I think that what she is} made this!

Such a sweet group of friends.

This is my youngest cousin- Harley- she's 11 and already taller than me! We had to get this picture because she gets tickled that I'm 24 and she's already that much taller than me!

My mom must've gotten the memo that a deejay was going to be at this party! She looks a little too excited to be dancing!

Chelsey- Happy Sweet 16!
