Wordless Wednesday…

I found this little bakery one day when I was driving around trying to find an antique store. I never found the antique store but I did find a delicious Snickerdoodle cupcake!  It was delish! So if you are ever in the area, this place is a must. I can see myself visiting this place to grade papers, study, etc!

A little vacation time…

While I am far away from home, I am very blessed to have family members nearby that I can visit on weekends! My Aunt Sandy and her family live about 3 hours to the west of me. I decided this past weekend would be a good time to visit before school starts up and the chaos begins!

They live on a little lake and so it is probably the most relaxing place you can be…I love is there! Friday afternoon Aunt Sandy and I went out on the paddle boat for a little evening stroll. We had a blast and it was nice to be able to look at  all the houses along the lake and visit! We only had one scare where we thought something was sticking it’s head up above the water and soon discovered it was a stick! I was worried about gators and Aunt Sandy was worried about snakes…thankfully it was neither!

This is a view of the lake…isn’t it great?? I could get used to this…

We spent the rest of the weekend relaxing and catching up! Saturday Aunt Sandy and I made some burlap curtains for her kitchen (that post will come later this week!) and cousin Bear and I watched a movie that night and hung out while the parents were out partying… Okay, they really weren’t “partying”. They had to go to a couples shower but I do think they had a good time.

Sunday afternoon we went out on the boat and swam in the lake! It was a nice day…not too hot and a slight breeze! I had a great time and can’t wait until I get to go back. It was a nice little break before school starts Wednesday.

Because there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for!

I was browsing around on Pinterest and saw this idea. For those of you who don’t know, Pinterest is a place where you can organize all your favorite ideas from online. It saves pictures that you can put into categories like DIY, Favorite recipies, Kitchen ideas, Things for my home, etc. Here is the link to my Pinterest account…check it out! I will warn you though, it is very, very addictive!

Anyway, now to get back on task… I made a “Jar of Thanks”! My goal is to put something I am thankful for in the jar everyday. We will see if I can keep it up or not!

For the paper I just cut up some thick tissue paper that was in a package my Mom sent to me.

This would be a great idea to do if you have kids….I think it’s a good way to focus on all God has blessed you with. It’s pretty easy to take those blessing for granted…

On Pinterest they were using the jars for all different things. One person had put a note in the jar everyday for 365 days…she put something she loved about a person (probably a significant other) every day and then at the end of the year gave it to them! I think there are many ways you could use this jar!

For some reason it kind of reminds me of the “Snap Cup” on Legally Blond….this makes me laugh!

The Flower dilemma….solved!

When I found out I was moving to Mississippi I was excited for many reasons but one of them was that I would be able to have live flowers on my porch! This may sound silly but in Kansas that isn’t an option… I always had to resort to artificial flowers which have their perks, like an unmatchable hardiness, but aren’t quite as pretty! The other night I was out searching for flowers and apparently it’s the wrong time of year to be purchasing them because I had no luck! I decided I would go back to the trusty artificial but it turns out Walmart has a very narrow selection and there is no Hobby Lobby. As you can see, this makes for quite a dilemma. (You are probably thinking, if this is her only dilemma she is doing good!)

I was going through some old wall decorations to go to the thrift store and I came across a board. Dilemma solved! So, I painted it and it now stands where the flowers would have gone by my little Adirondack chair!
