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! 😉

spaghetti

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?

Just in Time For Summer: Slatted Cabana Barstools

Just in Time For Summer: Slatted Cabana Barstools

Happy Wednesday, Friends! JUST IN TIME FOR SUMMER… Slatted Cabana Barstools! We recently finished this fun new design of barstools for our clients, the Kilbride family! They have a beautiful outdoor area surrounding their pool, but their previous barstools had seen better days and needed to be REPLACED. So they contacted us about building them a band new set!Continue reading

Happy Mother’s Day 2016

Happy Mother’s Day, Sweet Friends! We hope all of you have a very blessed day surrounded by your babies, whether they are BIG or SMALL…. because you know they will always be your babies no matter how old they are!

Today I was beyond blessed because I got to spend the day with my sweet HUSBAND (who’s health is continuing to improve daily… YAY!), and my 4 little JEWELS that God so graciously BLESSED me with. They surprised my with a yummy breakfast, coffee, the new shirt that I am wearing today,  handmade Mother’s Day cards, and flowers picked from our garden!Continue reading

Up-Cycled Bicycle Planter Box

Up-Cycled Bicycle Planter Box

Hi Friends! For anyone who has ever wondered where we get our LOVE of up-cycling from… well, look NO FURTHER! My grandparents taught us everything we know. They are old-school up-cyclers…. They were up-cycling when up-cycling wasn’t even COOL! Like, it wasn’t even a thing back then. But they did it and did it well, and are still doing it to this day!

I don’t always post their projects, but this one was so cute, I couldn’t help myself. They have been hard at work making this fun little planter box to put their “Watch For Children” sign in at the front of our driveway. (They are always making sure their grandbabies stay safe)

This little bike originally belonged to our oldest son, and it made its way through 2 more of our kiddos before it finally BIT THE DUST. It actually had a little help from daddy’s truck, but oh well… they had to learn the hard way not to leave their bikes in the driveway. (It was the first, and will hopefully be the last time they will make that mistake)Continue reading

How $15 Changed Our Outlook On Life!

How $15 Changed Our Outlook On Life!

This past weekend we decided to take a break for a bit to enjoy some time with our babies. This was something that we not only WANTED to do, but something that we really NEEDED to do. Between Patrick’s almost monthly heart procedures over the past 7 months, and working  7 days a week just to keep up with orders, we were in desperate need of a BREAK. And we knew our babies needed some time to decompress just as badly as we did.

Since it is now Spring, and the weather has been absolutely GORGEOUS here in Louisiana, we decided it was high time for a WATER PLAY DAY! So, we picked up some bubbles, a slip n’ slide, snacks, and pulled out last years $0.99 pools from Target and created a fun little surprise our kiddos. While they were inside of our home playing, Patrick and I secretly slipped outside to set up a FUN FILLED day for our family, and realized a valuable lesson in the process.

THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM…Continue reading

Grubs, Slugs, and Lizards… Oh My!

Grubs, Slugs, and Lizards… Oh My!

We are outside enjoying this beautiful weather with our kiddos, and extending one of our science lessons for the week.

As a mom of boys, I have gotten used to them playing with bugs, but I never expected my girls to be so excited about them as well. Continue reading

Who Remembers Doing This?

Who Remembers Doing This?

Yep! And we still do! We are so BLESSED to still have our grandparents with us, HAPPY and HEALTHY! Now our kiddos get to enjoy shelling peas with them too!

And we LOVE fresh peas. I eat them right out of the pod. 🙂

Louisiana Weather Probs #186

Louisiana Weather Probs #186

HEHE! This is so us tonight! We are from Louisiana, BORN and RAISED…  So we are VERY used to HOT, HUMID weather. As soon as the temperture gets BELOW 80 degrees (that’s what we call a COOL FRONT), we IMMEDIATELY break out our sweaters, boots, hot cocoa, hot apple cider, smore’s, blankets, and bonfires. 🙂

It’s just HOW WE ROLL! 

How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?
