New Orleans

   I should apologize before I start...
This post contains ALOT of pictures.
We spent the first few days of the New Year in New Orleans with my father-in-law.  It was such an amazing trip for our family. 


There were fluer de lis everywhere you turn.  Even on the lamp post.

Street entertainment was very entertaining. The kids were in amazement at the man juggling knives.
These men below were full of soul.
The St. Louis Cathedral was exquisite.  My breath was taken everywhere I turned.  My photography does not due it any justice. 

This angel held holy water in her shell.

We went on a tour by mule and carriage. Our tour guide was so funny.  He invited the kids right up to the front seat with him.

And last but not least Cafe Du Monde.  We had beignets for breakfast one morning.

OH So Yummy!!!

This is just a glimpse of our trip.. I will post more later
We loved New Orleans.
Any locals we talked to were so kind. Definitely a trip we will never forget.

Chalkboard Wall


What about you?
This wall in between my foyer has had everything on it.
Do you have one of those walls in your house that you change all the time?
Well I tend to change things alot in my house sort of my hobby ,but this wall in particular has been a tough one. 
So a little chalkboard paint and here it is.


Happy New Years 2012

We are so excited about our New Years plans this year.
We are getting an opportunity to go to New Orleans to meet up
with my father-in-law. 
The kids are super excited and I can not wait to check out the food, architect and of course thrift stores...

I hope to come back with some great memories and some awesome finds.

Hope you have a safe and Happy New Years!

I don't know how this mushroom fits into my New Years post but
I love its simplicity which is what I am looking forward to this
coming 2012.

Family Picture Wall

Like everyone else I have been going crazy with Pinterest.
The fact that you can sit on the computer and feel like you have accomplished something is quiet impressive.  Making to do list left and right.
Well yesterday I started pinning some inspiration for all the family pictures and signs I have around my house that I love but have never felt that I have found the perfect spot for. The one below was my favorite wall I pinned on Pinterest.

This is were we started...
The boys TV room.

I cut Christmas wrapping paper the size of all the pictures and signs that I planned on hanging and pinned them to the wall in a pattern I thought would work well for the room.

 One by one the hanging process began.  Lots of measuring and leveling.
This is the end result...
What do you think?

Overall a quick project we tackled.  It was such a big
wall.  Now it has a big statement.

First Day of Fall

First Day of Fall.....
A girlfriend asked me today if I had done any fall decorating yet.
My answer was "No".

I have been spending all my days off at my booth lately.  This morning I was very excited because I made over 20 yards of bunting (pendant garland) for my booth. Went up there today and hung it all up.  Realized I forgot my camera, so I used my phone as last resort.  Well the pictures came out awful!!!
Which leads me to this post instead of the new pictures of my booth.  
I broke out the first pumpkin in my house. 
Here it is..
Have a wonderful weekend all!!
