Is it really almost Monday?!

I am up way to late again, and I just don't want to go to sleep because tomorrow is Monday and that means that Chad goes to work.....and I am on full time mom duty! I LOVE mom duty....but it is soooo nice to have Chad home! Everything is just SOO much easier with 4 hands to handle 2 kids!

We had a super busy weekend!!!! Chad came home Friday night after being gone for the week on a once a year sales convention in West Palm Beach. I have to say that the kids were great while he was gone. (although I hope he doesn't read this because I played it up BIG time, so that I could throw that card out this weekend when I wanted a break!)
I was BUSY BUSY sewing and finishing up my Spray Painting Projects! Did I mention that I LOVE spray paint?! And that I LOVE that they sell the colors that I LOVE at Michaels so I was able to use a 40% off coupon to buy it?!

Here are my 2 of my 4 projects all finished!!!!

I bought both of these red to match my red farm house dining room table....BUT I am moving away from the red and wanted a new fresh "me" look to it all! I LOVE the outcome!!!!
This "S" hangs right as you walk in. I LOVE it! I found it at TJ Maxx right after we got married, when I bought ANYTHING with my new married initial "S" on it! For some reason I ALWAYS wanted an "S" last name when I was in school! Growing up as a "C" meant always having to go first for projects....and All I wanted to do was sit in the end of the line with the lucky "S" people. I feel so happy for my kids! :)
These 3 Stars are right below my beloved "S" and I just painted them with primer white....and am still deciding on painting them blue. I actually like the white on the soft green walls!
This is a SNEAK PEEK of the IKEA PICTURE FRAME that I am redoing!!! I am SOOOOO excited about it!!!!!!!! I am hopefully going to finish this project tomorrow....all depending on my kids and their naps. I must say that I LOVE it so far!!!!! Ballet Slipper Pink seems to be the Perfect vintage pink that I have been looking for for my sewing/guest room!

I just read your other comment..WOW she colored her nose! You are so right..I love this kind of history to. That way you can put a face with the story and actually get facts from people that knew..Not saying our american history is not factual..just saying...I was thinking the other day. Where are Lincoln and Washingtons decendants?
