But what I didn’t tell y’all about was the awesome DOOR PRIZE that I won! To be honest, I am not exactly sure how I won cutest pj’s because precisely an hour and a half before, I was a COMPLETE DISASTER. Continue reading

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.

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! ๐Ÿ˜‰

And if y’all don’t believe me as to just how hot it is here, this is PROOF…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! ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s on the menu in your home tonight?

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…

Record Flooding Here In Louisiana

Record Flooding Here In Louisiana

For those of you who may not know, we are currently experiencing record flooding here in Louisiana. This weather has been some of the worst that we have seen in our parts in quite some time.

But since we have been so busy going back and forth to the hospital this past week with Patrick, I never even paid attention to some important little things around the house that I really should have in order to prepare for this weather….

Do What You Love

Do What You Love

Ain’t that the TRUTH! ๐Ÿ˜‰

We love getting to have our babies help up in the shop… supervised, of course! They get to learn so many awesome things from watching us build, repair, refinish, and up-cycle. And they are so PROUD of themselves when they get to see the finished product that they were able to help with.

At the end of the day, it is all about family and doing what God specifically CREATED you to do! As they say… “If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life.”

(P.S. For our lawyers and doctors out there.. we love ya too!”)

Guilty As Charged!

Guilty As Charged!

Guilty as charged!

I cannot, I repeat… CANNOT, hold my laughter in. It is physically and emotionally impossible for me to do so. And it seems to be even worse at times that I am especially NOT SUPPOSED TO LAUGH.

My strength on this matter was tested twice last week when a family member tripped and fell in my yard, and then an acquaintance was telling me about a story where they got hurt…. but in the most hilarious, unimaginable way. I know. I know… all of you think I am absolutely horrible, but I CANNOT help it. And I did ask if they were okay. That is… after I pulled myself together and finished laughing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

At least I feel a little better about my situation after one of our clients revealed to me a few days ago that she and her daughter laugh at funerals. No judging here! I am now nervous I will do the same at the next funeral I attend.

Do any of you have this problem? Or is it just a crazy select few? ME INCLUDED!
