I was given a subscription of Everyday Foods, by my sister-in-law, for Christmas.
You can also see, in the above picture, that I had my new Rachel Ray Garbage Bowl in use:) And I had to throw in a picture of the pretty red quilted apron that I was wearing while I made dinner. Both were Christmas presents from my mom.
I've been having alot of fun with Photoshop, as you can see. It makes me want to get out and take some more pictures.
We've been busy since getting home, moving around furniture, taking down the Christmas decorations (which is way earlier than what I ever take them down), I made curtains for the garage, and we're getting ready to paint the guest bedroom, bathroom and nursery.
We go for our ultrasound January 20. I'm hoping that this active little one will cooperate and let us find out what it is!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Have a Happy New Year!

I'm getting so excited! We have our ultrasound in January to find out what it's going to be, yay! Then I can start making things, buying things and registering for all those sweet little baby things!

Well, I have some very exciting news! Mr F and I are having a baby! Baby F will be here in June. I'm 16 weeks, and dying to know what I'm having! I've been so sick and tired all the time. And I'm absolutely huge! Pictures are to come soon!

My tree, it was a gorgeous tree, a huge tree, and my favorite tree. I'm sorry that I didn't have any before pictures of it. Before the accident that is. You see my tree was so big and huge and heavy that after all of the decorations were hung and it was all lit up and gorgeous, it had a huge accident. It fell. Just fell right over in the floor. It broke my heart along with many ornaments. Thankfully it only broke one really special ornament and that was the one we got on our honeymoon in Antiqua. We get an ornament on every trip that we go on:) Anyway, we ended up having to wire the tree to the wall. It was so sad looking after that, it just did not look as beautiful as it first did.
See how sideways it looks. I kept thinking all season that it was gonna fall again!
Look at all of those presents!
This is Emma, all dressed up in her jewelry and her new pink cowgirl boots!
Look at how young they all look.

But then this week my time of leisure ended:( I started my new job. I'm so thankful to have a new job and to be back to trying to save lives and of course making some money! But it's been hard to go from waking up when ever I want to, to having to leave my house by 6 am to make it through all the traffic and be there by 8 am and sit in class all day! I feel like I'm in nursing school all over again! It's been excruciating! I can't wait to be in the ICU next week!
But the saddest part of all of this for me is that I've been here working and Mr F has been back in VA this week working and will be there next week as well. I wish that I could be there with my family.
Maybe I'll be able to get some sewing done and some pictures posted once orientation is over with. Hope you are all doing well!

Don't ya just love it? Look at those cute little ants! I can't wait to go on a picnic now!
I cut the sides and removed the back. The back of the neck had the cute little ties already so I left those in place.
Then I found this t shirt at Target for $4.98 as well. Go here to see my inspiration for this tshirt makeover. She has so many makeovers that are just too cute!
I shortened the waste line and made the neck opening a little bit bigger.

They were purchased at The Goodwill for under $5 for all of them! A can of white spray paint and a can of black spray paint and this is what they became.....
Then I started on this cabinet. It was fine white, but I wanted something different. So I painted it with a high gloss black on the outside and a light blue satin on the inside, it was called Comes the Dawn. I think it turned out perfect!
Since that cabinet turned out so well, I decided to go on and tackle the china cabinet. I'm so glad that I did! I bought this at an antique store in Floyd about 3 years ago for $150. It was old and it smelled. But only on the inside, so everything had to be washed as soon as you got it out. So this is how it turned out....Definitely needs some help, don't ya think?
I did run into some trouble on this one though. The black paint ran and ran! I ended up having to get a sander and sand it off and repaint. What a pain! But it turned out great after that!
