It's kitchen day! Oh the kitchen...the heart of the home. We have been doing some minor updates lately and finally this weekend we have finished. We took out a bar, got new counter tops, had to fix the backsplash, new sink and fixtures, new light fixture, added pulls and added a shelf. I am so pleased with the changes and just love, love, love the granite and undermount sink. My kitchen gets tons of use because I love to cook and bake so it is a very important room in our home. Hope you enjoy!
Our very simple kitchen curtain.

My nephew, Hayden, got to come stay two nights with me this week while my niece, Ava, was in the hospital. I loved having him here....almost as much as Jack did. He plays so hard and is so loving of Jack and Sam...what a great example he is for my boys. He and I got to have slumber parties in my big bed. I can't believe how big he has gotten and am blessed that I get to spend time with him. He really lights up my life (even if he told me my Chicken Parmigiana is GROSS).
Here he is drinking hot chocolate at Mima's. He did not want to drink it forever and now LOVES it.
Thanks for all the prayers for sweet Ava. She is doing much better and is home from the hospital now.

I have been gone from blogging world for a little over a week (and missed it horribly). Our life quickly got CRAZY! Sam and I went out of town for a wedding and between work, school projects, and kiddos...there was no time for the computer. But, I'M BACK!
Starting with little Sammer's nursery. I wanted a very baby, vintage feel to his nursery and went with traditional blue, green, and white. My mom and I made all of the bedding and curtains. My friend Janet made the sheet for us and made the sweet little pillow for a gift. Every part of him was made with love. My husband hung the crown molding and painted the dresser (mine from childhood). He also painted the simple moon and stars staking a watch over Sam every night above his crib. The most amazing thing is that my mom redid a mobile with the fabrics we had used. It was a painstaking task....but I SO love it. Enjoy his sweet little oasis.
Please say a prayer for my precious niece, Ava. She is in the hospital with MRSA and is fighting this horrible infection. She is so full of life and I hope she has a quick recovery....I am sure she hates the hospital.

I have seen several people post about some of their favorite things on Friday's. I decided to follow suit. Something that I just love and wish I had more of is LAMPS! I love at night when the lights are low and my house is lit only by lamps. I love reading by a lamp. I love the shape of a lamp and how they look dressed. Here are a few of our lamps we have lighting our life.
Added the buttons to this lampshade for an unexpected touch.
My laundry room lamp. Bad pictures sorry....overcast day.

Don't you just LOVE when the mail comes. I do...especially when there are surprises from Glitter and Bliss. Today she sent me the most awesome frame. I love it so much and my little Sammers looks great in it. THANKS A MILLION! You are TOO generous. I also showcased a necklace I got bought from her a few weeks ago. I love that too. Go check her out!
