Super Heroes Vs. Plastic Roaches


Oh it's been a crazy past few days.  The short version is a secret project met some super heroes and a fairy princess and they had a wonderful tea party with plastic roaches.  It's crazy I told you.  Last week Mr. Byrd was gone on a business trip which sent me into a tailspin to finish a secret project before he got home. I can't tell you what the secret project was yet, you'll find out soon, but I only had a few days to paint our master bathroom and bedroom.  I had planned it all out in my head that Monday I would prepare both rooms.

After I hyperventilated from seeing my coveted fabric stash cut into tiny little pieces, I … [Read more...]

Good (YAWN) Morning

Sometimes I like to go through the old posts from the past few years. I laugh at the funny pictures, cry at the pictures where my kids still look like babies (I miss it!) and rejoice over the fact that the word "potty training" has now been stricken from our family's vocabulary.

Because it shows that almost one year ago to the day I experienced a type of ground hog day scenario. Ok so I haven't spilled coffee on my feet … [Read more...]
