Happy Birthday!

Hey Shorty, Its my birthday....

I am embracing my birthday this year! 
I am on vacation and just whooping it up - sort of... LOL 

Let me stop here and say that I am all about a crowd but MAN OH MAN look at the beach in Rio when then Pope visited there....

I mean that gives me anxiety just looking at! 

Anyways I am off to celebrate the day! 
Happy Birthday to Me!

Here we are in mid July! 
Did I not just take my Christmas tree down?
Time is FLYING by!

Any who I am sitting here in front of my TV listening to the news hash out the Zimmerman trial! 
I am obsessed and cant turn it off. I swear I think I missed my calling as a lawyer !
So while I sit here I will upload some summer pictures....

I am weird and I think that the local news people are famous so when I see one out amongst the masses I have to get a picture! 

We celebrated Ryan's birthday...


Atypical Family picture...

Are we the only family that balances the camera on something to get us all in the picture?

Happy 4th...

So HUMID....

I took 300 fireworks pictures and this one is my FAVE! 

Straight from my garden! 

Another peak into our new office...

Love that I can fly the RED, WHITE and BLUE outside of my house! 

I had a lunch date with the sweet Lilly yesterday! 
I miss that sweet girl since I moved! 
I wont lie the cow kinda freaked me out but I had to take one for the team :) 

Seriously loving my garden! 
We joke that my Pap-Paw is smiling down on my garden skills. 

Ok well I am going to try and tear myself away from the trial to get somethings done....Lets be honest I will just turn the TV up so that I can hear it all throughout the house :)

Ellie Mae

Im sharing a project! 

Here is the before...

This bad boy literally came from a side of the road sale, sorta...
You see on Saturdays my brother is out and about working early and I am sleeping late, drinking coffee and probably watching The Pioneer Woman.
So if he sees a sale and thinks there is something that I will want he immediately calls me, drives away and then waits for me to call him and BEG him to come back, load something up in his truck and then he lets me beg to borrow cash because I NEVER have cash! 
He is a good brother :) 
He has found me an AMAZING bench, a mirror that literally probably cost $500 that I got for $20 and now this hutch. 

So let me tell you about this hutch! 
There was a huge sign taped to a truck that said "Moving Sale" but the catch was there was no house where this sign was it was an old tattoo parlor? 
I was for sure intrigued. 
I walked up there and there was tons of stuff outside and I told myself that I was not going inside that building! 
Well I went in....
There was no power  in there but there sat my hutch! 
I bought it, Ryan came back and loaded it up and home it came.
This bad boy smelled so bad. 
I was literally gagging taking off the hardware but a little vinegar, basking soda, dawn and sunshine we were golden! 

So here we go...
Here is the finished project (its not decorated yet just painted)....

I loved the color of these handles from Lowes.
They are simple but pretty. 

The coloring is not great in this picture ( I took them at night).
 I painted it with The Southern Honey paint - Ellie Mae Color. 
I love love love this paint. 

Here is the colors that she sells...

I am super happy with how this piece turned out and it looks like it was made for my kitchen!!! 

* Let me know if you want to try her paint! Maybe I can talk Kim into doing a Beth's Blog Discount!

Last Free Weekend...

I am doing my Friday Dance! 

Its been an insane week with and insane amount of hours put in at the office (I know I sound like a broken record)! Im really hoping that after we move it will SLOW down! 

Y'all I went to the new office this week and I teared up! 
I am not a crier but it just shocked me to see how amazing it looked and to know how much WORK we have put into this place! 
Here is a picture from our Austin office...

Our new office will have the same feel of this but it will be a little different! 
So Exciting! 
This will be my last free weekend till we move so I have to make it a good one! 

Last night I went to eat with the little brother! 
Oh my stars he cracks me up - he owns his own business and let me tell you he could have cameras follow him and I guarantee people would watch. 
The stories he tells are hilarious! 

I have to share my first homegrown rose! 
I love it! 

I have become insanely obsessed with ice coffee! 
I mean its becoming a problem but I love it!!! 

I made the Pioneer Woman's recipie and I am mad at myself because I havent made it sooner! 
Go check it out here

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
