Magnet Boards

I wanted to share an idea I came up with last year for my kids.  I purchased 3 magnetic dry erase boards for the back of our garage door.  Each child now has their own space to hang up their school work, art, class schedule or anything they want.   I also have a place to leave them notes or remiders.   I bought them in Target for under $10 each.  

Have a great weekend!

Trying again

I realize it's been MONTHS since I've blogged.  I was feeling a little unsure about this whole blogging thing.  Don't get me wrong I love to read all those decorating & organizing blogs out there in blogland for inspiration.  I've even started using pinterest to orgainize all my ideas. You can follow me here.   I just wasn't feeling confident in having enough to write about.  But then one day as I was reading one of my favorites i heart organizing and someone mentioned my little unknown blog.  I couldn't believe it...I was so excited...I was "famous"!  LOL 
Soooo... I thought I'd try again since someone actually read my blog & used the the paint color I used for inspiration in their space...thank you Roxann!
You can find my minute of fame here...

I've got tons of ideas rolling around in my head & can't wait to get started this fall.  My kids go back to school this Thursday and although I'll miss having them home it will free up lots of time to work on some projects.  Especially our dining room table that sat in our garage all summer.   I painted the table & 6 chairs with primer last spring but never got around to sanding & painting!! 

Since it's still HOT here in NC...I started with a small indoor project...this morning I emptied their school file bins from last school year (yes...I know they've been sitting there all summer).  

But we've had a busy and fun summer.  We just got back from a week at the beach.  We go every year with our family...and this year my best friend & her husband & kids joined us.  Here are a few shots from our trip...

 This is a picture we take every year of the kids.  I got a shot like this 4 years ago without the kids knowing when they were sitting next to each other.  But now we line them up to take it in age order...

These are my 3 kids...



A shot of me & Gavin...

My husband celebrated his 40th birthday while we were at the beach.  We threw him a Luau Surprise party on the was so much fun!

 Hope you enjoyed your last days of summer vacation too!
