Quick Change Weekend!

Our weekend started out with an old family friend Lee (he was close friends with my g'ma and g'pa McCoy) coming over with his tractor to help us regrade our driveway. He let the kids sit on the blade to be the weight and take little rides. He was so sweet and fun to be with. I didn't get to spend much time with my grandparents before they past so it was fun for me to hear the stories and find out more about them.

We are the proud owners of a brand new dented BBQ! We were going to get one that was not as cool (but substantially better than none... which is what we had currently) and found one that was marked down $100 because it had a dent in the back of the lid! Stayed in budget and landed an even better BBQ than we planned!

We have the sticky tiles in the kitchen and some of them were starting to come up. When I couldn't find a match... I went another direction all together. The tiles there now are grey and so I went with black and replaced the damaged ones. Then I did a few more interspersed throughout and tada!!! It really gives the floor a fun punch and cost under $10!

I have started on my garden set up and will keep you updated! I am going with a "fruits of the spirit" theme... uh, yeah... you can totally decorate a garden... watch me! LOL!

I was wondering -- when (or if) we get to that season of our lives -- if you do consulting for us women (woman? I humbly admit I may be the only one) who aren't house-making savvy.

I love seeing all the transformations in your's and your family's lives -- both internal and external.
