Winter blues?

I guess I have the winter blues?  I feel myself trying desperately to make our home seem springy. By putting away winter decor (which I didn't have much of anyways) to infusing springy colors. How about you?

finding a home for our Fall Shoot

Well as most of you know starting last September, I was LUCKY enough to do a FALL SHOOT of our home and some exterior shots with photographer Robin Stubbert. VERY different shots compared to our PRAIRIE STYLE feature. Unfortunately I cannot  share any of the photos at this point but trust me they are GREAT! Now Robin is trying to find a home for this wonderful story. The photos are sitting with an editor as I type this but not sure if they will feature us or we wait!!!

They did it!

Locks of Love for sure!
The girls got their hair cut at school on Thursday as part of the schools Terry Fox Run & event day.
An extremely emotional time for me.
My eldest daughter went first.   I had asked my friend Nancy who is a teacher at the school to cut their hair. Come to find out her Aunt has lost all her hair and is battling cancer so it meant a lot to her to do this.
My youngest daughter had never had even a trim so it was (is) a big deal to me! I braided a tiny braid to keep for myself and I snipped it off first before handing the scissors back over to Nancy.
I have shed tears here and there since. Yes even at Walmart! And then we  had an employee almost crying when I shared her story. Can you believe it!? Oh the crazy people you'll see at Walmart! (ME)  THE GIRLS LOVE THEIR HAIRCUT! AND BEST OF ALL SOME LUCKY CHILDREN WILL HAVE BEAUTIFUL WIGS MADE OUT OF ~LOVE~

Locks of Love

My beautiful girls are cutting and donating their hair to Locks of Love tomorrow.  I have mixed emotions! My youngest, who is almost 6 has never had a haircut yet!  You can bet I'll be keeping a few LOCKS for the baby book!  ;)

Kitchenaid mixer makeover

I'm sorry I don't have step by step instructions to share.
I myself scoured pinterest and found multiple sites that share in detail the process of how to paint your mixer.
I encourage you to google it or look on pinterest and you will find what you are looking for!
I have had this mixer for 8 years now my hubby bought it for our anniversary. He paid EXTRA because it had to be the PINK one!
For the last year or so it has been in the cupboard because I was getting tired of the pink. (sorry hubs!)
BUT now I am loving the white!
It's not burning my eyes anymore!
