My Big Summer Project



Any guesses what my big summer project is???

...

No, I am not starting my own bakery...

...

No, these are not gluten free {gross}...

...

These are not a new recipe I am trying...

...

Well, first came love


Then came marriage...


and now



Baby BOY Jarrett is set to make HIS appearance in January 2016!  Yep, I have been making a baby all summer long.  We are so excited and terrified!  I have been feeling great except for being extremely tired {like post full marathon tired}.  I plan on doing a couple posts on how we found out, told our families, and what I have learned about pregnancy so far.  I am such an expert now.  Totally kidding.  I hope y'all have an awesome Friday, and please have a margarita for me!

Painting Adirondack Chairs


Hello! What do you think of our "new" turquoise adirondack chairs???  Our {backyard} is still a work in progress but these chairs are definitely helping ;).  Poor Tall Tan Man has to put up with my side projects weekly.  Here is the before picture of the chairs:



The seat and arms had lost most of the finish and I was tired of the stained look.   I wanted to get out of my usual go to neutrals, and used Glidden Exterior Marine Blue paint.  Originally I planned on spray painting, but Bill at Home Depot convinced me to use a skinny roller.  I also used a foam brush to get into little crevices.  



These chairs definitely brightened up our back porch!





I have to go into school this week to get some work done.  It is happening, summer is ending.  I am excited to share my biggest summer project this week.  Stay tuned!
