My life: mother of 2, wife, never bored, always moving, plain, real.....
making the boys' lunches before school
my view as my boys walk (i.e. run to avoid the rain) into school
I have finally been able to recently focus on our every growing to-do list. After 10 years in this house, it's time for some fresh paint and a few minor upgrades. I love this stuff.
The ugly brass drawer pulls are GONE!! When we bought this house those pulls were one of the first things we wanted to upgrade. Finally. It only took 10 years.
I love spending time in here now.
Someone needs to fold laundry more often--consequence of emptying the laundry room
So, I said I have been on a home upgrade kick. I always get antsy when my better half travels. I stay up too late working on projects and reading. I dream and create more work for myself. I got out of the shower a couple days ago and decided to paint our bathroom vanity black....and add tile around the mirror. So....

My boys are 5 and 7. They are not little anymore. They no longer need to stand on a stool to help me cook. However, their stool still sits in our kitchen. I can not make myself put it away. I recently painted it black and we added a couple extra touches. I have spent hours making handprint and footprint projects with my boys to give to grandparents but I have very few of them myself. So this is mine--a reminder of the point in time when they no longer needed the stool.
I am raising boys. BOYS. They burp and spit and make armpit noises. I swear it's all genetic because I can assure you that I teach known of those skills. While I grilled dinner B decided that he needed to try a new water spitting skill he learned from the movie Madagascar 2.
my heart swells with pride
Back to the grind.....
