DIY Patio Table

diy patio furniture

I'm excited about today's post because it means my DIY patio table is done!!  In the early spring I saw a picture of a patio set and I loved the table and thought it would be useful for our patio area. It was around $200 and I thought that was pretty steep for this particular table. So what do I do next? Did a little research and after a few weeks I finally found what I wanted in an outdoor table. I emailed Jason the plans and a few days later he started building it. I believe he enjoys my list of DIY projects so he can use his tools for said projects.  We already had our … I'm not finished reading yet...

Chocolate Sheet Cake

homemade chocolate sheet cake

Chocolate Sheet Cake- homemade chocolate sheet cake with from scratch chocolate frosting and topped with chopped nuts. I know chocolate sheet cake is kind of boring in the world of cakes...but I had to have the recipe that my grandma used on my blog. My grandma use to make chocolate sheet cakes for birthdays and get togethers at church. Chocolate Sheet Cakes are nostalgic for me. I use to get so excited seeing the cake sitting and my grandma always made sure to send my brother and me home with the leftovers. Which never lasted long! Aside from the memories, Chocolate Sheet Cake is … I'm not finished reading yet...

mommy and baby boy

Happy Frriiiddaayyyyy! We have some fun outings to attend this weekend and the weather is going to be beautiful so I'm looking forward to that! The picture of Grayson and me is from February...where my baby still resembled a baby!! Since it's Mother's Day weekend I figured I'd share one of us. I got some flowers potted and our patio rug out so I'm trying to spruce up out small back patio. I love sitting outside when the weather is nice but I always get bit by mosquitos, which is why I need to make these.  Learning to sew is on my "someday to do" list and once I start I'll be … I'm not finished reading yet...

Good afternoon! I am sharing a DIY beauty post today!!  I don't claim to be a beauty blogger but I do have a minor obsession with all things beauty..... in case you didn't know.
