Stay Funnie Mom Giveaway!

I recently received this fabulous hooded towel. It is so soft and perfectly handmade with love by Ahmelie. My daughter is wrapped up in this Organic Amy Butler designed watermelon towel. It is super absorbent and can be used for bath, pool, or beach. Currently my daughter is using it for the pool and she absolutely LOVES it! This towel will grow with your child too. Seriously…this is my favorite towel in the house!  Sign up for a chance to get your own!

Sweet Prints at Shop by M

Not that I ever get bored, I've got ideas that could keep me busy for years,  but what an adorable saying!  Love this print from Shop by M!  It would look great in a white frame in a child's bedroom.  She also has some other very cute ones with hidden messages in different colors.  Check them out at http://www.shopbym.blogspot.com/ !

Cabin Update: Adding Curb Appeal



We've gone from short, dark and unnoticeable to springy, warm and inviting. The landscaping has put the finishing touches on our road side view of the cabin. We added  hostas,  edging and woodchips to complete the curbside makeover.   We also transplanted a few miscellaneous plants around the corner to give the road side a more unified look.  The hostas just popped little purple blossoms that are so cute with the yellow walls.  Hostas are also maintenance free--yippee skippee for us!  We added a terra cotta star to the front which provides a point of reference when giving directions to guests and also makes the cabin feel homey.  Money saving tip: we split the perennials that were already on the property so we didn't have to purchase any plants.  I have a ton of lillies on the lake side so if anyone needs some just let me know, we'd be happy to share.  We are officially ready to hit the water and kick back and enjoy the great outdoors! 

Stay tuned for more makeovers inside the cabin--woot woot!
