Guess what Joanne.....

This little insignificant blog began as a way to show things I like to my dearest friend Joanne. Since we live so very far away (many, many states away) it's hard to show your friend cute things you've seen or cool things we did, so I began this blog. You see, I've known Joanne more than 1/2 of my life and have more in common with her than nearly any other human being...wheatgrass, tea, boots, knitting, and the list can go on and on. She is fabulous and I love her!

So Joanne, you know my obsession has been these...
mostly because you first told me about Frye boots and I finally own my first pair NOW (thanks to momma for bday $, and a little of my own).  Well, today I was drowning my sorrows at the Rack (because it has been that kind of week so far and it's only Tues), when I saw this little denim jacket I got all "country" and needed it.  It was 60% off and came out to $9. Sure I'm nearing my 3rd trimester of pregnancy but it fits above my belly quite nicely.

OH, and I'm addicted to buying jeggings so I of course picked up another pair :) And that is how dear friends communicate about important, very important things from thousands of miles away!

Love you,

We were blessed to have a surprise baby shower last week. We were overwhelmed with love and blessings. Our hostess, and fabulous friend, made us homemade apple sauce and just packaged them so adorably, I just had to share a picture. The girls and I are thoroughly enjoying the applesauce and dread the day when we run out! Liz-we need more <3

Hooray for cheap furniture!

Sometimes I wish I had designer furniture. You know the kind that you pick from a catalog or well lit and cozy showroom but alas we obtain most of our furniture from yard sales or even discards on the side of the road. I believe this table and four chairs cost us a total of $20. There is a beauty in it! In it can be refinishing to make something all yours. Such is the case with our dining room table. This is the second time I replaced the chair covers...the first time I replaced the padding as well. This time I opted for a creamy vinyl type fabric with tiny amber colored dots on it. It is quite fun to change the look of your dining room and it is so easy. All one needs is:

1) Fabric of your choice.
2) Padding for a comfy place to enjoy your dinner.
3) A cordless screwdriver. For removing the seat and putting it back on.
4) Staple gun & staples (my favorite!).

I'm sure this will not be the last time I will replace the fabric, but at least this time they should be easier to clean!

Cute addition to our home. From Joe's grandmother who recently passed away. It will be a lovely reminder of her everyday.

While visiting an art museum today, I was introduced to Trompe l'Oeil art. It was amazing. I snapped a photo of this little piece because I like it. I was then scolded and told that photos were not allowed.
