Who Me? No way.

So cool! My friend Christin over at Pregnant with power tools gave me the Versatile Blogger award. How sweet is she? The rules for the award are list seven things about yourself and then nominate seven new blogs that you like to read. So here goes...

1. I have had the same four CD's in my car for six months, Glee vol. 1 and 2, Michael Buble, and Coldplay.
2. I have an amazing family- my parents are so awesome!
3. I love to use the word Awesome- kind of weird but true.
4. I hate to write- which is why my blog posts are so short, I kind of started this blog thing to help me get over that little deficiency.
5. I hate to cook but LOVE cooking shows- whats up with that?
6. I love my minivan- It is the perfect car for me at this time in my life and I wouldn't trade it (my car or my life) for anything!
7. I am a talk radio junky-which might explain number one :)

Now here are my favorite blogs....

1. Flamingo Toes- great ideas and great writing and my favorite blog name.
2. The Harvey Files- a great new homeschooling blog by Cindy who also has an awesome decor blog
3. Tattered and Inked- Kelsey does great things with cabinet doors
4. Decor chick- This girl is great, her ideas are endless and her awesome personality really shines through!
5. Love Susie- cooking, crafting and gardening- she has great photography
6. Sweets Indeed- This is a great site with a new blog section Marie is so creative and her hubby takes awesome photos.
7. Beckie Riggs Photography- Beckie is a friend of mine who does amazing work!

This was so much fun for me, I hope you had fun too!
PS. As soon as I figure out how to get that Versatile Blog button I will post it here. But you can always check it out at Christin's site Pregnant with power tools. If you figure it out let me know :)

Sweatshirt Redo

I finally finished my sweatshirt makeover. Sorry it is hard to see in the pictures but I am happy with how it came out. This sweatshirt was heading for the trash but has been given new life with a few appliqued flowers. Thanks to The Pleated Poppy for the great directions and awesome idea.

I am linking up to these cute sites....

Someday I am going to make this!

This amazing flag art piece is from knock off wood. Ana knocked it off from Pottery Barn. You can check out the post here. One day in my free time (ha ha ha ha) I would love to make this for the large white wall in my backyard.

Mission Organization- week 2

Ahhhh....it is already Tuesday night and I haven't really started on my mission for the week. For this mission I am going to clean out the laundry closet. I started by repairing the bi-fold door (photos above) which had come off and tomorrow I am going to organize and purge. I am only going to keep laundry and cleaning related items in there so we will see how it goes and where the other things end up. Here are a couple embarrassing photos, I can't figure out how to remove the top picture so sorry about the double :) Did I mention that I fixed the door all by myself (all except the hanging part which my man helped out with) I feel super proud!
