Frequently Friday

It's been another very crazy week, but hopefully I'll have some down time soon.  So not much time to look at blogs, but I did find these three awesome posts.  Hope you enjoy.
  1. I think this is just so smart.  What a great way to get organized and clear away all those little loose pieces of paper from around the house.  Thanks ThriftyDecorChick!  A Hidden Memo Board.
  2. This little lady is an answer to prayer.  If any of you struggle with planning your weekly menus and/or getting it done in time to eat, then check out Make 5 Dinners in ONE Hour.  Make sure to tell her I sent you.
  3. Make sure you visit BigMama and read all her beauty product wisdom - such a great post.

Please leave a comment for these ladies and show some bloggy love, and tell them I sent you.

Frequently Fridays

I am back y'all!  Whew, what a whirlwind of a week.  So much to tell - moving, unpacking, cars breaking down - it's been an adventure.  But more posts on that to come.  Let's focus on the cool posts I found this week.

  1. Centsational Girl's Learning to Sew post - so helpful!  As one who is about to jump into the sewing arena, I found this extremely helpful.  Now I am not scared or intimidated by the prospect of buying my first sewing machine and teaching myself to sew.  Yay!  I already have a huge list of projects, can't wait.  If you have any suggestions on machines, please share them with all of us in the comments.
  2. Centsational Girl was on a roll this week, I love this Artist Canvas turned to Inspiration Board - my anal, organized side is salivating over this.  Love it!
  3. So, this is a total brag, but I love my cousin, Stacey's, Etsy shop!  She makes the cutest baby and children's clothes/decor/blankets/etc.  Here is a look at her latest creations, with lil Fritter as a precious model. 
  4. And if you are looking for super awesome and beautiful Christmas wreaths or any wreath or anything gorgeous, check out my friend Erin's latest blog introducing her Christmas creations.
  5. Becky's totally convicting and helpful post on Gossip.

Happy Blogging!

Moving On Up...

Well, we finally closed on our new home...after 2 delays.  I count us lucky since we've had friends who have had closings delayed for up to 2 months, so 2 weeks was fine.  I'll post pics next week because it is fast and furious right now.  The Hubs and I were up bright and early Saturday morning to meet the security system install tech at the house at 8am.  Then, the painter came by.  We did not finish with them until 1 and then we had some shopping to do.  And we got some great deals ya'll, that always makes me feel good because I really don't like to spend money.  But we bought some needed pretties for the house, mainly a new King comforter.  It took all day, we did not get home until 8p.  We were zonked and then we got up bright and early on Sunday and started over.  After church we made a few more shopping stops, bought groceries and crashed.  I'm still not recovered.  I'm walking around work like a zombie.

It's all worth it though.  We met several of our neighbors while we were at the house and it was awesome!  Everyone is so friendly and apparently, our new neighborhood is Trick or Treating central.  It was packed with kids, parents and grandparents.  I see that as a good sign.  It feels like a real community, I can't wait to get to know everyone.

But I cannot wait for you all to see the house, especially after the painting is done.  So there will be no Frequently Friday this week, but I will resume next week because we move Saturday!  So I'll be busy all week packing and such. 

Talk to you all next week.
