favorite four $ frame.

While @ a local thrift store this week, I knew I had to have this frame.  
I mean look @ that detail? 
It had no price, but she said she'd find one for me & it'd be @ the check-out 
{huge fear sinks in; what if its $10, I can't do $10} 
I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.

I am learning that there is nothing you cannot do 
without a lil bit of paint 
{& a lot of love}.

so much
that it makes me cry.
Thank you, Chris.

my 'theGREENurbanite' bag; LOVE!

While at the Knoxville Market Square's Farmer's Market yesterday, I came across one of those "I have to haves." I visited the adorable, unique booth, "TheGREENurbanite."

The owners are adorable, sweet, and easy to talk to talk to.

& to boot, it was only $7!

It holds just about anything a mommy needs.

If you are ever at the FM, make sure to check them out; also visit their website for information on living a Green lifestyle.

Honeymoon Phase?

I thought being a stay-at-home (SAHM for those who like acronyms) would be like this everyday.
Yes, it has those moments, but so far, this is so good. Yeah, yeah, I think the honeymooon phase will pass. It doesn't hurt that its summer & I keep us busy with lots of activities.

My babies are happy.
I am more laid-back,
I love that I can just 'play' and not have a million other things on my mind.

I have been able to be creative in new ways.
LOVE my new kitchen curtains; in the process of re-doing my kitchen so stay tuned.

& who doesn't love summer foods?

& Hazel's dressings on just about anything I eat?

I am blessed,
less stressed & really taking in every moment.
