Door










i've got big expectations for today....front porch makeover b/c boy does she need some help!  i have had the rattan swing hanging up but it came down, when taylor was in it, and so i'm ready to retire her for a while.  my sweet neighbor gave me a chippendale bench and i'm about to take some clorox to it and some fun paint.  then i really want to repaint my front door- i'm thinking green, blue, or gray.  and i need to add ferns, plant plants in pots and bed, paint my ceiling blue, and update the light.  okay, so this might not all happen TODAY but hopefully i can start it....well, right after i finish babysitting....i've got a friend's little boys over in addition to mine.  i sent her this picture and said having 4 kids was a piece of cake (totally kidding, i would not be good w/ 4 kids but it's fun having them play).  in other news, i had a little girl time yesterday and got a mani/ pedi....loving the mint green nails...and i went bold neon pink for the toes!!  you should totally treat yourself :)  hope y'all have an amazing weekend.  wish me luck....the warning on the clorox bottle tells me to wear eye goggles, long pants, long sleeve shirt, hat, boots, and rubber gloves- what exactly am i using here??!!

I'm crazy about front doors. They really tell the visitor what to expect. They either, never want to leave or send the message, please wait here while I bring you your item's, dinner etc. Also, love the toes, the children surrounding you and working my way to liking the nails... xoxo

BTW, I reheat my coffee 3 times every morning. I'm thinking maybe it's not normal?

I decided to get the Tervis mug and lid after drinking cold coffee for way too long....does the trick and keeps it hot until I'm finally not distracted and can enjoy it!
