Hot Concerts On Cool Nights

Mike and I got free tickets to see Tim McGraw at an outside venue last night and it couldn't have been more perfect, the weather I mean. (wink wink)  Remember, we got free tickets, not good seats, so we stood along the fence along the walkway and we were able to see pretty good.  We had to stand up the whole time, but it was certainly worth it.  

These pictures were taken with my iPhone, so they aren't great. 

It was a good night, but I'm realizing I'm too old to stay out too late. We stayed until 10:30, got home at 11:00, ate a cheeseburger and went to bed at 11:30.  I felt like I had a hangover and the only thing I had to drink was a Coke Zero!  

Next is P!nk in December and I will take a good camera for that one! 

Rock On!

DIY Glitter Frame Matting

I had some picture frames for Maggie's room and I just thought they were plain and I really didn't want to put an actual picture in them so, of course, I headed over to Pinterest to see what I could find.  I wanted to find something that was user and budget friend.  FINALLY!  I found it on Our Thrifty Ideas and I just knew I could do it!

So, I started off with the matting of the frame, spray adhesive, glossy clear spray paint and glitter.  I didn't want to buy Sugar Coating because I'm too cheap BUT I did find some glitter that would work just fine and the perfect color too!
I stripped the matting, sprayed the adhesive in sections, covered with glitter and kind of mashed on it to make it stick, made a huge mess on the back porch, then sprayed the clear coast adhesive once it dried for a few minutes. 

I didn't want to use a picture in the middle.  Maggie's bedding is black and white, so I found a Damask print online that I liked, printed it and stuck it in the middle and there you have it!  I think they turned out really good and they look great in her room!  

Hope you all have a blessed day!

Almost There!!

Well I have done almost everything I need to do before my bypass surgery plan is submitted to my insurance company. I'm both excited and nervous, but I'm so ready to be a healthier me!

Right now I'm in vacation mode!  Leaving for a cruise at the end of the month and I'm so excited!  I'm excited for the kids a whole lot because this will be their first cruise AND we will be on one of the biggest ships Carnival has!  EXCITED isn't even the word to describe how I feel!

On another note, back in March, Sarah was in the Spring Beauty pageant and she did a great job.  She came in 5th place.  Well, I think she should have won, but whatever.  :-)

Her hair did so good!  I want to give a shout out to Tasha and Melanie's!
She did a wonderful job on Sarah's hair even when she wiggling around!

My little beauty.

One of my favorite pictures of her

She LOVED that she could do this with her dress.
