~A Christmas Visit~

 Yesterday afternoon we spent the day at my cousins home for a Christmas visit. We are very close and always have a wonderful time when we are together! The food was amazing and there was a lot of chit chat going on but I managed to snap a few pictures of her beautiful entry and living room.

One of my Favorites!

 Today I am sharing one of my favorite projects from 2011, the transformation of our kitchen island! We did this project back in March and I love it just as much now as I did when it first got done.

 The BLAH before picture!

 Added beadboard and decorative molding.

 We had the door and drawer fronts painted by a professional and I painted the rest.

 This island makeover gave our kitchen a whole new look. I love it! Thank you for stopping by and always leaving such sweet comments! I appreciate them so much!!

Christmas Morning~ 2011

This is what our family room looked like before the kids made a mad dash for their presents!

My son is thrilled to get anything with his favorite football, baseball, or hockey team on it.
 Mackenzie loves to dance and takes classes 4 times a week. This sweatshirt is from her dance school. They just started to make them up and I knew she would LOVE to have one.
Little Miss Victoria must have been on Santas good list!
                             Even Toby loved all his goodies!

  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!! It goes by way to fast!

I HEART Home Goods!!

 In the middle of doing last minute Christmas shopping this weekend, I had to run into Home Goods to see what new things came in ;) I'm in a Bunco group with friends and it's my turn to host next month so I thought I would start looking around for some gifts and I managed to find one FABULOUS one.....
