A Laundry Room Re-do

It's DIY day over at Kimba's and I finally have something to post!! I recently updated our laundry room with some much needed fresh paint to cover some 70's wood paneling! We are still renting as we look for our first home and our awesome landlord said she'd pay for the paint if I wanted to do anything to the house!! And our laundry room was first on the list! She also is going to pay for laminate wood flooring in the laundry room and kitchen and my dad is going to put them in!! YAY! So goodbye ugly red floor!
And that's why if you notice I didnt paint all the way behind the washer and dryer and to the side of it, I'm going to wait till they move them out to put the floors in to paint there!
*Sorry for the bad pictures.


How's it look!? Much better, I think! I still need to put another coat on the closet doors and the door to the bathroom. I may try to find some cheap knobs to put on the cabinets too, they kinda look plain!

Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to look at all the other links over at Kimba's!

This is Ms. Lucy, and she is the new addition to our little family. She is a basset hound and 16 weeks old. She's a handful at times, but T just loves playing with her!

It feels like it's been forever since I've updated! And I can't believe Thanksgiving is less than 3 weeks away! Craziness. We have three Thankgivings to go to, all in one day, so let's hope we can survive that!

Happy Monday!

More pictures.

I love this face. Ha. This is his new "I'm not getting what I want" face. How can I resist?

The weather is starting to get colder so we are getting as many evening walks in as we can!

Always stylin'.

Friend Makin Mondays

Today is Friend Makin Monday's over at Amber's. The topic this week is to list a few things you can't live without! Hmmm. At the top of my list would of course be my family and faith, but after that would be:

  • Diet Dr. Pepper, Some people drink coffee when they wake up..I drink pop. Yum.

  • My LAPtop. LOVE it.
  • My Dog!
  • Mystery books
  • Mcdonalds! Yea, I know.. I literally ate it EVERY day while I was pregnant. Not kidding.

Has it been a year, already?!

My sweet baby boy is turning one on Sunday. ONE. I've been working on my letter to him and reminiscing on all the memories of the past year. This time last year I had already been in the hospital for a day, waiting on the news of whether or not I would be released or induced. Two days, 20 hours of labor and a c-section later I had my baby boy at a healthy 7lb 12 oz. I look back at pictures and can't believe he was that tiny! My baby boy who was dependable on my every need is now walking, talking, and depends only on me if there's a stranger around. He's bossy, demanding, and can get always get his way with his daddy.

An AWESOME find!

This Saturday I went to a few rummage sells with my mom and although there weren't very many out we found some good deals! We were out and about around 645am and our first garage sell I found THIS

I just grabbed a picture off the net because my mom is storing it until T is old enough to play on it. I nabbed it for $10!! They go anywhere from $140-190!! It looks like it has never been used! This has got to be my best deal ever! I also grabbed a few other items as well! Enjoy!

I got this ceramic piggy bank for $5 bucks! It's HUGE...! It's over a foot tall and a foot wide. Also got a kangaroo Halloween costume for T. And a few fun toys for T to play with all $1 a piece!

Don't forget to head over to Southern Hospitality and join in the fun!

That would never happen to me.

My almost 11 month old son fell out of his high chair. I'd heard horror stories of babies falling from their cribs and highchairs and NEVER thought it would happen to me and my son. Ever. I watch him, I don't leave him unattended. Ever. But it happened. And I felt like the worse mother. Ever. It happened so fast, I barely had time to even realize it. I rushed him to the emergency room and by the time we got there he was laughing and clapping his hands. Thankfully, he was a-okay and has been acting himself ever since!

Yardsale Finds!

Well I have been reading Rhoda's blog for almost 6 months now, but I finally got up the courage to create my OWN blog and start linking up for Thrifty Treasures!!

Here are some the things that I have got over the past month or so from yardsales!

This is a vase a friend gave me because she was getting rid of it!! She also gave me the stars as well! I added the bamboo that I had from a different vase. I looove it.

Here are a few other things I got from her that were also FREE!

And here are some things I got for the little one!

The little tikes cow lawnmower was $2 and the stuffed animals were .25 cents a piece. I also got an elephant and another monkey and I will be using them at his first birthday party which is safari themed!

Make sure you check out Rhoda's blog and all the great finds everyone got!

An Introduction.

Since I am new to the blogging world and have very few people who read this blog, I thought I'd start by introducing myself and the rest of the fam. I am an almost 22 year old married mother to a 10 month old son and a 3 year old beagle. I am a stay at home mom and love every minute of it. My hubs is almost 25 and works to support my dream. While staying at home I try to cut corners and save on everything I can. Including groceries, home decor, shopping, and about everything you can think of. I clip coupons, I LOVE garage sells and I browse the internet for the best deals. We are trying to save up as much as we can right now because we are in the process of buying our first home!

The kid.

The Dog.

The Hubs and I. Sadly this was the most recent picture I could find. Enjoy.

Hopped on the wagon!

Well, I have been reading over 30 blogs every week for over a year now and finally decided to hop on the bandwagon and join the crowd! I decided I want this blog to be a little about myself and daily life and a lot about saving money. Since that's what most of my life is about! I enjoy the thrill of finding good deals and the minimal effort it takes to do that! I hope you enjoy taking the time to save a dime!
