How to Lay Brick Pavers(1)This was definitely one of our "bigger" projects. We were looking for a way to extend our patio, we came across our neighborhood builder demolishing a parking lot made from pavers. There was a sign that said "Free Pavers" you just had to get them yourselves. So there we were with many other homeowners/workers loading free pavers into our cars. This saved us a lot of money!

Old Bench Revamp!

Bench

So I have been looking for a piece for our foyer and while shopping around I stumbled upon this bench. Now my thought when I saw this was how hideous, it looks like something that belongs in Miami subs (for those of you that are not familiar with MS, just think really tacky Floridan.

Advent calendar

We are super excited this year, we get to celebrate Christmas with both of our families in our new home, that's 15 family members all under one roof (you know like a "Home Alone" setup.) So much to do, so little time, here I am already thinking about all the little details and its only October! I have a million different ideas for recipes and decorating all going through my head. My sister-in-law and I are going to be planning this together!

Purchased this wood sign at Joann's a few years ago, it has been sitting half painted for about 4 years. I have finally completed it!

Summer Dress

I made my first dress! It was super easy, the material came as is so the elastic top was already sewn together. All I did was sew the hem and side and then I had to add two slits in the dress so that I could actually walk comfortably in it. I'm looking forward to lounging in it when we go on vacation.
