I thought I would write a short blog and show some various DIY project I have done over the past year! I love DIY something about the look for less gives me and adrenaline rush! :) There is also that feeling of pride when someone says they love this or that and you can say oh I made that ;) Enjoy!
My Goodwill find!! $5.00 for 5 8x10 A coat of black paint and black and white photos!
frames! Printed BW photos from Walmart $15.00!
So sad I didn't take a before picture, but this was a silver chandelier we got at The Boneyard on Raymond Hill for $34.00! I can't wait to hang this in the bedroom!
Our master bedroom coming together! I need to raise the curtain rods, add pillows to the bed, paint the tray ceiling....and the list could keep going! Hoping to post with the chandelier tomorrow!

Wow I never thought motherhood would be as challenging as it is!! Well I knew it was going to be the hardest thing I ever experienced, but its nothing like you think, you really can't prepare for it haha! I have enjoyed every minute of it though! Baylor is definitely a handful and he loves constant attention on him! He is growing sooo fast I really can't believe my eyes! Here are a few pictures of him from the past couple of months!
He seriously he cracks me up daily with all the silly things he does! He just turned 3 months on the 10th and currently just rolled over 2 times last week but hasn't since then! He also loves his hands and feet and putting them in his mouth!!!! He has also really found his voice lately and the coos have definitely become babbles! I think he also might me teething since the drool has literally tripled and I have noticed on the bottom right side it looks a little inflamed! Here are his stats for the past couple of months:
Birth: 8lbs 11oz 20" long
11 days old: 9lbs 1 oz 20 1/2" long
1 month: 11lbs 6 oz 22" long
2 months: 14lbs 1 oz 24 1/2" long
I haven't taken him for a weight check this month yet so I will probably just wait til his 4 month appointment! I think for a exclusively breastfed baby that is dang good! He obviously loves to eat
In other things Zach and I just bought a new car a 2012 Hyundai Sonata! We love it!! Especially all the gas that we are saving!! We are also currently looking for a church and I am so ready to find one to get plugged into!! I miss being a part of the Body of Christ! I want to know God on a deeper level that where I am now and I am super excited to be starting a online bible study with my friend Jamie! She and my sister have been such a blessing to me lately and keeping me uplifted! I have been struggling with being sad about living in Newnan lately and missing my family and friends so much and I think thats were I am needing to be apart of a church again so I can meet new friends and of course be closer to my Saviour!! Ok I think that is all for today Baylor is needing some love :)
