Wise Decor

This website, wise decor is a really cool thing. It lets you purchase quotes...scripture...words...whatever you want and it sends them to your home with instructions on how to apply them to your wall. I have seen these in person and I didn't know they came from a website and were applied by the homeowner. I thought she hired someone to do it by hand. Check it's really cool! Here's a picture -

Mom's surprise party

Oh, we got my mom good this year for her 50th birthday party. She turned 50 on July 13, however, all of her friends were gone and everyone was so busy that we planned a surprise overnight slumber party at one of her friends house in August. She went there thinking it was just going to be her and her two friends, Kim A. and Archilene. But when they got home from dinner, we were there to surprise her. I think we scared her more than surprised her! Haha. We had such a good time. We stayed up till 4:30 a.m. I am still recovering and it was Friday night. Oh, so much fun!

Update to Getting to work in OUR home

Well, as I stated in my blog last week, Joseph and I devoted our Saturday to cleaning and organizing our guest room/office. I am very excited to report that we did finish in one day and that it is the best room in the house, in my opinion. I have pictures on the wall...a beautiful bed spread...and our office is set up with some of Joseph's sport's memorabilia. It looks really nice...I can't wait to have our first guests. I will take some pictures tonight and post them tomorrow...if I can remember.

Next big weekend project is to clean out the hall closet which looks like a storage unit exploded in it.

wedding pics

Okay, I broke down - here are some pictures from the photographer.

Getting to work in OUR home

For anyone who knows me, I have a limit of time that I can handle clutter, a dirty room, or just boxes everywhere before I can't deal with it anymore and I act like a crazy women trying to get it cleaned up. Poor Joseph is just now really experiencing this about me. I have already informed him that our Saturday will be devoted to getting our guest room/office cleaned out and set up. This I'm sure will be an all day, maybe all weekend, project. Also on Saturday, I hope to get my dining room chairs...I am tired of looking at folding chairs.

Once that project is done, I next want to tackle the upstairs storage closet and get it completely organized, because right now it is not. After that, I will start my painting project...which will be to paint the chair rail wall in the dining room red and to change the lime green bath room into a beautiful peanut butter color.

Once all that is done, then I can concentrate on decorating my walls and so forth. I saw online the coolest thing to do with picture's a picture of a giraffe that is cut up and individually framed and put on the wall in a puzzle like manner. It really is one of the coolest things I have seen for decorating with picture frames. I think I want to do this, I just have to find a picture that will be easy to use and figure out where I want to put it. Maybe in the hallway/staircase.

Of course, all of these ideas won't happen this weekend. They are just things that are on my list to do whenever I can.

Wish me and Joseph luck this weekend as we attempt to clean and organize!
