Shopping Radar!

I have what I like to call "Shopping Radar"! I will be thinking of something that I would like and then one day it just hits me! I need to go shopping!
So lately I have been thinking I need to go check out the new Crazy 8 store for school clothes for my kids. Plus I just did not want to clean the house that day! So I got all ready and right before I left I checked the mail. What do you know there was a 20 percent off coupon in the mail waiting for me! It was a sign! So I head off to the mall with 3 children, expecting only to find a few things, and I found a ton of stuff! The pictures do not show everything, but in all I found 9 pairs of jeans, 16 shirts, 1 dress, 1 pair shorts, 2 hair bows, 1 pair barrettes, 1 bracelet, 2 pair of shoes, and 1 stuffed guitar that my 3 year old insisted on having for $319! I am pretty much done shopping! And for three kids I did not think that was so shabby! And my coupon that happened to jump in my mail box before I left, saved me $60! I only paid full price for 2 items!
Thank you coupon!

I have been taking advantage of the summer and have been LAZY! I love sleeping in and not having to worry about being anywhere! So sorry about not posting for awhile!

Here are some of my favorite pictures that we have had taken or I have taken in the last couple of years! Photography is something I enjoy, but do not do it often enough!

Happy Fourth!

I am a Patriotic person at heart! There is something about that American Flag that I just love! Especially waving in front of my house! I am so grateful for all the many men that have sacrificed there lives for our Freedom for so many years! Thank You for our freedom!
Happy Independance Day!

Part II of Avery's Room Makeover

My good hubby had a few days off a week or so ago and got some of his "Honey-Do-List" done; with my help of course!
One of the projects we got done was the molding in my daughter's room. I originally wanted to do bead board, but got lazy and went for a little more formal look with some molding.
This was very simple to do. With some good measuring, a miter saw, and a nail gun we got it done.
This is a picture of the 1 1/4" molding on the miter saw being cut on the right side at a 45 degree angle. I had 8' moldings so I did a square 2'x2'.

This is the left side of the molding being cut at a 45 degree angle. Make sure to measure right so that everything squares up at the end.

We measured everything out on the wall, put a few pencil marks, used a level to make sure they were straight and nailed them up.

This is a picture of it all painted with all the furniture back in place. Sorry you can't see it that well, her huge bed takes up the whole wall. The bedding by the way is not done yet. I can't decide whether or not to keep the black and white on it. What do you think? I will be making some pillows in the near future that will tie everything in better. But this is it for now!

This is the other side of the room

This is her growth chart on one small wall by her door that I painted for her. No, I have not put her height on there yet! Bad Mom!

Here is the material that I will be making her pillows out of soon! I just need some darn motivation!
