Feelin' Lucky

 I would like to finally introduce you to our little Lucky! Lucky is a Hen and you know what that means...
 Fresh eggs!

These first few pictures were taken about 4 weeks ago and she has grown so much! My husband is building her chicken coop right now because she has outgrown the pin we had for her in the back bedroom to keep her away from the dog, cat and the other critters that live around here!

Lucky was given to Jon from an employee at work who raises chickens and he named her lucky. When she was just a few days old she was accidentally stepped on, hence the name :)

This picture was taken yesterday! She has gotten so big in just 4 weeks!
There you have it! I can't wait until we have fresh eggs to collect! Are you into gardening or raising chickens or cows? Our next project is a vegetable garden!

A Makeover with Annie Sloan

Recently I have been inspired to repaint furniture, especially after I heard about Annie Sloan paint a year ago. I used it to paint the top of our kitchen table, which now I want to change again, but I will share more on that later. Since then, I have painted a dresser and vanity that belonged to my mother in law. I love the way it turned out!! 



Pin It
The first time I used this paint, I used clear wax on top, but I wasn't too thrilled on how it looked so this time we painted two coats (Old Ochre), distressed it with sand paper and sealed it with Polyurethane. It's a little cheaper too;) Our bedroom is not complete, but it's getting there!

My next Annie Sloan makeover will be our dinning room table!

Until next time,

Things you should know about me if we are going to be friends...

 I keep the cabinet doors wide open in the kitchen, that’s all of them at times
I can’t sleep with the closet door open

I have burps that are known to register 9.5 on the Richter Scale
I hate making the bed
My purse is always messy
I still have a baby tooth
I leave the socks for my husband to fold
I’m really picky about my PB&J sandwich. {Peanut butter on both pieces of bread and jelly on one}
Great find at a thrift store makes my day
I love post it notes 
Oh and I'm really bad about talking on the phone! I would much rather go for a coffee date

Thrifty Treasure

I'm sure you remember my obsession with Goodwill! My most recent was this side table for our living room. I got it for $12 which is much better than the one I found a few weeks ago for $35! I believe it was made for this corner.

Here are a few other thrifty finds you may have missed.

A Good Find

Don't you love a good find, especially at a garage sale?!  Well my husband wins the best good find award! He was out driving around the other day and stopped at a garage sale that was selling a gas grill for only $15! He even scored a full tank of propane! We have been shopping around for one for the back yard, but was wanting to wait until it got a little warmer out to purchase one and they are sort of on the expensive side. This came at the perfect time! :) Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and don't forget to stop at your neighborhood garage sales. It's that time of year!

Before he cleaned it up
It looks and works brand new!! :)

Until next time,

Life Through Instagram

 I love instagram! I enjoy looking at people's pictures and my favorites are the inspiring ones; ones that share a story, a story of friendship, family, a weight loss journey, a DIY challenge or even just a simple quote or bible verse that helps brighten my day. Here are just a few pictures I have shared on instagram lately.

I just started this book and I love it! I can't believe it has taken me this long to read it :)
