Nail Polish on Carpet!!!

     So my chickadees got nail polish on our beige carpet.. have I ever mentioned that I cannot stand carpet?? Well this is why.. my children and carpet just DO NOT mix. We've been here less than a month and I've had to treat a stain at least once a week. Unfortunately, since this house is a rental, we can't rip it out.. So I went to my sister, who has had nail polish in her carpet, and pinterest to find a solution...

Thrifty Finds | Episode 3

     I don't know if you know this, but I get a thrill from watching how people update their furniture. My Pinterest is full of before and after photos of furniture makeovers. Now it's my turn and I couldn't be more excited! Mr. Chickadee is getting a kick out of it, says he's never seen me light up this much about things. He's the type to go to the furniture store and buy the whole set up. Not me. I'm thoroughly enjoying the scavenger hunt and am anxious to start working on my treasures! Bringing together random pieces to make it all work. Check out my thrifty finds from the last 2 weeks!

Rags to Riches | Picture Frames

     I like to display these older photos in our home.. they are of Mr. Chickadee and myself in our younger years.. and they've been in this frame for ages! Wasn't Mr. Chickadee such a cute toddler?! (Top left) And the bottom left, is the photo I was shown before we met.. sooo not what he looked like when we did meet.

     Since I discovered what my decorating style is, I decided I wanted to change it up a bit and add that farmhouse charm to them.

Thrifty Finds | Episode 2

     I am a thrift store junkie. I love thrift store shopping and almost always find some goodies. Yesterday I went to a local Goodwill to find a cheap art frame to turn it into a chalkboard sign, but as I was browsing, an employee set out a white framed chalkboard. Excatly what I wanted to make in the first place! And it was only $4!

The ABC's of Our Family Values

     I am so glad I found a MOPS group here! I went this week and we watched a short video clip by Danica Russell where she talked a little about her book, A Little Radical: The ABC's of Activism. A book for kids to start thinking about pro-active problem solving. As an exercise, we all wrote down our own. When I got home I decided to find a bible verse for each one as well. So here they are...
