She's a "grader" and there's nothing greater than that. Here's Brooklyn on her 1st day of first grade. She did so well and was so ready to do something other than being bored at home. I'm just glad I don't have to listen to SpongeBob anymore!

Here are the current projects. Two dressers and a toddler bed. We already did our office desk, but the room is still being assembled so pictures will be posted soon.

First is the sad Michael Jackson dresser that's been missing some handles. Mike put the stickers on when he was a kid. I can honestly tell you that Michael Jackson no longer exists on this dresser. It's time to let go (*sniff*) This dresser will be sanded down, stained, then will be struttin' some new hardware.

This was Brooklyn's toddler bed that we got for $35 from IKEA. Taylor's room is already yellow so the orange would be a horrible clash of color. All I have to do is remove the hardware and spray paint it white. Can't wait for the clean look!

This is a dresser I got from a neighbor who was giving it away for free. Tip for the wanna be DIY-ers, if it's free, just take it! This one I want to get creative with. This bad boy is going to get a new color, a pattern painted on the drawers and some pretty new knobs. This will be going in Brooklyn's room so I want to make it look good. Stay tuned for the results!


Yeah for new hair cuts! This was to just get my hair healthy looking again. I've been working so hard at growing it out that I haven't cut my hair in about a year. Finally it got long enough that running my fingers through it wasn't working so well anymore. Luckily Jessica (Killian) Olsen is one of my neighbors and while she cut Brooklyn's hair for the new school year I decided to get mine cut as well. Voila! Hello swoopy bangs and layers once more!
