crazy talk: a reupholstering job part 1

 I'm trying my hand at reupholstering some chairs, crazy talk, I know. So far the demo portion of the project has been smooth sailing. {I may come to regret those words later}. The chair you remember from here.

The fabric:

 I picked up some drop cloth from home depot months ago for various projects and this great floral bird number is actually a shower curtain I found at goodwill for $4.99, what a steal! Wish me luck! So far the hardest part I for see being, is sewing the cover for the cushion and the double welting, GULP. Two things I have never attempted. Did I mention I have limited sewing skills? Double GULP.  

 Do you also like how I don't clean up any of my before pictures? I'm just keeping it real. I always have five projects going at once, so it's normal for our covered patio to have a rug, a recliner, baseboards, a paint can, and a dog kennel hanging out under it, doesn't everyone?

on my heart

Every time I hear one of Phil Wickham's songs I get lost in worship, he is a talented singer and song writer. And such a testament to using his God given talents to draw people closer to our CREATOR. Happy friday, enjoy!

Easter {Hop}penings

I am officially on Easter detox, this weekend has wiped me out. 3 Easter egg hunts,7 Easter baskets, and a birthday party. And we still have my family festivities this week!

Me trying to tell my toddler NO MORE candy, as he shoves whopper eggs into his candy stained mouth before I notice has proven to be fruitless.  
 I may or may not have snagged some goodies from some of his Easter baskets that were just too good to share. Can you say, Starburst jelly beans and Reese's pieces? 

I made $14 from an "adults only" Easter egg hunt that bodes cash instead of candy. My kind of Easter egg hunt. I apparently have a reputation for being a bit of a brutal beauty at it. As announced before the start, by my brother in-law who has a good foot in height and a hundred pounds on me. Technically, no one said throwing elbows wasn't allowed. 
 An altercation with a pregnant lady also may have occurred at that same hunt, not once but twice. She's family she'll forgive me. There was a $20 egg at stake, people. Don't judge.

Overall, a very fun filled weekend. Now I'm ready to put my feet up during nap time and enjoy some of Everett's my Easter candy.

This poor little baby of mine is in the midst of her fifth cold since being born. 5! I guess that's the result of being born in the midst of cold and flu season. That and being the youngest, always picking up the crud from the older kids.

Schlemiel, schlimazel, hasenpfeffer incorporated!

For some reason when this little lovely showed up on my door step this morning, I couldn't get this theme song out of my head. Hopefully someday soon, Zooey will be the Shirley to her Laverne. One can only hope.
