i don't have a green thumb....i'm not a gardener by any stretch of the imagination (in fact, the plants i bought over a week ago are still sitting in front of my house waiting to be planted).... BUT i am LOVING these boxwood (? is that the right word) in those woven baskets.  my question is: do you have to take them out every time you water them??!!

sometimes we all need a little push out of our comfort zones....these words are a good reminder for me today.  hope y'all are having a wonderful week.  speaking of comfort zones, i'd love to be pushed out of mine and sport some ankle boots....but it kind of scares me :)

this AM i woke up totally on the wrong side of the say i was in a monday morning funk would be an understatement.  i stayed up entirely too late doing important things like watching bravo's shahs of sunset (did i seriously admit that), then i got in bed and started thinking about all the things i had to do this week....i stared at the ceiling for a very long time....then the alarm went off to go running but right before i was about to leave i checked my phone and my runner partner had canceled....i needed to turn my day around.  ask warren, he'll vouch that was mood was rotten.....
so after dropping taylor off, walker and i went for a run.  and i must say there is nothing better then pounding the pavement when things aren't going your way.  before i left, i created a new playlist that included we are young (seriously see if you can listen to this song and not be transformed into a 21 yr old) and otis (this just makes you feel like a bad a$$).  and afterwards, i was transformed into a new person.....
 so i think i owe my family a due over for this AM.....
 here you go honey :)
in other news....i did start my front porch makeover......and i am already so much happier!!  i painted my bench, got ferns, added pine straw, had some bushes chopped back, and bought flowers for my planters and bed (now if i can just plant and water them)......
still need to paint my front door and ceiling and get a new light but things are looking up!!  okay, i'm off to love on this little man...
have a HAPPY monday!!!!

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??!!

sorry for being MIA...we had a rough weekend.  we lost our sweet doggie barron.  we got barron right after warren and i got married and moved into our first home, seven and half yrs ago.  it is not fun being  a grown up and making painful decisions.  it is equally not fun to have to tell little taylor that barron is in heaven.  we know he's safe and sound and no longer in pain.  he will forever be in our hearts and is definitely missed in our little household.  we love you "B"....
