5 Things: Baby Shower Honoring Little Miss Hailey Grace

Hi Friends and Happy Friday! We have been so BUSY with orders, and I am just now getting a chance to post about the FUN and TOTALLY GIRLY baby shower from a few weeks back. I apologize for not having the opportunity to do so sooner, as we have had several of you ask about it since. Well, it went wonderfully, and everyone had a great time. Plus the family received some wonderful gifts for their baby girl.

Sneaky Peek of Some Cool New Handles!

Sneaky Peek of Some Cool New Handles!

What do y’all think about this cool new style of handle that we picked up for a clients’ furniture? Patrick was just acting a little silly with them, but they will be upside down when we add them to our pieces. And they are going to be SO PRETTY! The pieces that we are working on are actually going on some new furniture for a sweet baby girl’s room. It will be a room fit for a PRINCESS!

The color theme for this set, as well as the entire room is so GIRLY and PERFECT! We are using a few shades of gray, light pink, and white lace. We simply cannot wait to see all of the pieces finished and together in their new home awaiting the arrival of Princess Penelope! She is going to be so perfect, y’all! More pictures to come soon!

Happy First Day of Summer!

Happy First Day of Summer!

Happy First Day of Summer! This PERFECTLY depicts just how HOT it currently is here in Louisiana, Haha! Y’all I honestly thought that Summer started here weeks ago. The temperatures have BOILING hot and it is impossible to even attempt to take on any outdoor activities between the hours of 9:00 am-6:00 pm. That is, unless you want to MELT! 😉

And if y’all don’t believe me as to just how hot it is here, this is PROOF…Continue reading

Good Report Today!

Good Report Today!

Well Friends, this was THE DAY that we have been looking forward to for the past 5 weeks. Today was Patrick’s first check-up visit with his heart specialist since undergoing his last heart procedure. We went into today with high hopes that we would receive some good news, and would be able to finally begin to put all of the pieces of our life back together since everything seemed to fall apart last year when he was first diagnosed with AFIB and Congestive Heart Failure.

This day seemed almost SURREAL. All of the trials that we have gone through until this point were coming to a head. And as excited as we were going into it, we were also a teeny bit apprehensive. Would we receive good news that would help to uplift our spirits and fill us with hope? Or would we receive bad news and would once again have to restart this whole process over again? We were filled to the brim with nervous excitement, and were anxious to find out whether or not the reading from the heart monitor over the past month would be POSITIVE or NEGATIVE. So we said a prayer and took a deep breath as we made our way into the doctor’s office while hoping for the best.Continue reading

Louisiana Saturday Night!

Louisiana Saturday Night!

It’s a Louisiana Saturday Night over here, Y’all! And tonight we are cooking some Eggplant Parmesan (MY FAV!) with some fresh eggplants just picked from the garden!

They will go well with the 500 lbs of pasta I accidentally cooked earlier. HEHE! 😉

Every. Single. Time.

Am I the ONLY one who does this? I always cook enough pasta to feed approximately 125 people and I DON’T KNOW WHY! Maybe it’s just my Italian roots coming to the surface. 🙂

What’s on the menu in your home tonight?

5 Things: We Welcome You To The Lollipop Guild…

1. So, let me start off by telling y’all that we have not been to the gym in FOREVER! At least 8 or 9 months. Basically since Patrick’s health issues began last August. But since we finally have his heart rhythm under control, his doctors have released him to start working out again. Until now, he was only released to work… and that was it! So, sitting at home during this time period has caused us to really undo all of the hard work that we put in at the gym throughout the years prior. And with all of the added stress… the pounds decided to make themselves at home… on our bodies! The struggle has been REAL my friends. Especially considering that this is what my heart keeps telling me to do…Continue reading

Time Spent In Our Workshop

Time Spent In Our Workshop

Patrick’s brother sent us this yesterday, and I think it is safe to say he has spent MORE THAN ENOUGH time with us in the shop. He has our workshop habits down pat because this graph depicts EXACTLY what goes on around here on a daily basis.

Now, off to find that MISSING TOOL I was looking for…

Happy April Fool’s Day!

Happy April Fool’s Day!

Sounds like a PLAN to us! We have NEVER been good at the whole April Fool’s thing. Either our pranks were TOO LAME, and never fooled anyone, or else we thought that our ideas were TOO MEAN to try on anyone. The most successful trick I have played all day was jumping out and scaring 2 of our 4 kiddos. I am still working on the 3rd, and will not stop trying until I have accomplished doing so for the day. Although, I love scaring people, and do this ALL of the time, so I am not sure if it really constitutes as a real “April Fool’s Prank.”

Have any of you ever gotten away with a successful April Fool’s prank? If so, tell us all about it in the comments section below. Maybe we could try it out next year. Happy April Fool’s Day, Y’all!
