A Little Update & Change of Heart

Holy moley guys. The last time I posted was almost a whole month ago. Yikes!! My unintentional break was because of… well… life. And my 2 left feet. Can’t forget those. They are what made my short 1 week break into a month long break.

A Little Update

The past 3 weeks have been the busiest of the entire year. And that is saying something because we are normally pretty busy. It started with my aunt and uncle coming in for a short visit. Fifteen minutes before we were supposed to leave for the airport to pick them up, I tripped and fell. And it wasn’t your average trip and fall. After all, I am my father’s daughter. That’s a reference to where I gained my 2 left feet.  My father had a history of bad accidents (Nail through the hand. Claw of hammer to forehead. Catching a softball with mouth… twice… once resulting in temporary amnesia. Me cutting off his finger… oops. THEY REATTACHED IT!)

I couldn’t quite get my hand under me fast enough to catch myself. This resulted in my fingers bending all the way back to touch my arm. After yelling for the hubs and trying to breath through the insane amount of pain, we rushed off to urgent care. David had to leave me there while he continued on to the airport. A few x-rays later, they said they were unsure if I broke it but I definitely tore a bunch of tendons. Yippee. And yes, I’m a righty. I was left unable to use any of my fingers to cut my food, write, type, or do just about anything with my right hand. Imagine what a joy I was to be around! Please ignore the toilet paper stuck to my shoe. You are lucky I was able to even get some off the roll. Let alone pull up my pants.

Patriotic Pinwheel Wreath + Ultimate Red, White, & Blue Roundup

Our newly painted front door got a little partner in crime prettiness! You know I have a serious weakness for wreaths (as evidenced here, here, here, here, here, and here.) Just the other day I realized that I haven’t created one in more than a year!! What!? What’s wrong with me? Have I been sick? Did my hands fall off? Nope. Not since the last time I checked. I just bought a house and have been putting my efforts into making our house a home. Silly me. Where are my priorities?? 😉 But I’ve been missing my wreath-making so I spent about an  hour creating this little beauty. Check out my adorable Patriotic Pinwheel Wreath!

Curb Appeal Tips (Part 3) - Shutters

Last week, I shared about our new roof and the landscaping we have been toiling so hard on. You may have noticed that the “after” picture of our house I have been sharing all week has fancy new shutters. That is because I totally forgot to take “after” pictures along the way, after finishing each step. Oops.

Curb Appeal Tips (Part 3) - Shutters

Up until a week ago our shutters looked like this. A deep hunter green. In certain lights, they just looked black. I wasn’t a huge fan.
