What a big week we have ahead of ourselves. Tomorrow is a walk-thru at my parents new home. I will be doing that for them since they are 2 hours away. I have a list of things that I have to check on for them and my Dad has given me some other instructions so my notepad, pen and camera are ready.
This Saturday is a very special day for my husband and I because we will be celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary. He is taking me to Amish Country for the day and I asked if he would take me to this restaurant that my Grandpa use to take me to and he said that would be fine. I love thinking about old times I use to share with my grandparents and for me to sit down and have lunch there…..well, it would be a nice treat! We will then head to Amish Country for a day of window shopping. I know, I know…..why go when you can’t buy, but we have to watch our money and lunch in itself will be a treat for me. I hate not having the money I use to have….. it is so hard at times especially when I use to be able to just buy whatever I wanted to buy, but times are tough and I have to remember that I get to stay home with Cameron which is a blessing and a gift in itself. I hope to get a little something from my hubby, but we will see.
I have been trying my best to stay busy lately. I have had alot on my mind and it is best to keep busy so that is what I have been doing. I haven’t been sleeping very well because our mattress is just awful, I had some people in my husband’s family tell me how to raise my son, that what they were doing wasn’t going to hurt them and they walk all over Shawn and I and it is quite hurtful. I spent the afternoon, yesterday evening and today trying to get calmed down about it, but it is quite bothersome. It is an ongoing thing and I am just personally getting sick of it. It is not like I can hardly do anything about it when they are “family” so we at times just bite our lip and let them walk all over us and not respect us as people or parents instead of speaking up and making waves. I long for some guidance so any help or suggestions from you all would be so appreciated. I sometimes wish I had more nerves to speak up, but that just isn’t me and instead of creating a mess between my husband and his parents…..well, I just let things be. Anyway, I have been re-arranging a few things here and there and thought I would share some pictures. Do you all remember these bowls that I re-finished?
Well, I decided that I wanted them on the side of my cupboard so I hung those up last night. I also hung up one of my new signs that I made and also found something to put under that sign. It took me awhile to get it all up because I was having a hard time trying to find something to put under my new sign. So, what do you all think?
I also found a great place for my tallow berries too! I put them in my new crock and I thought they looked great. I might try to take a few out so I can put some elsewhere, but we will see. I love the way they look in that crock. So prim perfect!! Thank you again Sherrie for your kindness. It is greatly appreciated my friend.
I did however change things around a bit with this picture…..the updated and re-arranged picture is now being used as my header. Gotta love it. Well, I am off to start preparing my dinner. I am fixing my Grandma’s chicken noodle casserole. I thought it would bring back great memories plus Cameron loves chicken and noodles so we can’t go wrong there.
Hope you all have a great week!!
P.S. Alot of you gals have asked me where I purchased the candle sleeves. You can pick them up at any lighting store and might be able to find them at a craft store such as Michael’s, but I would always call first. Thank you for the great comments.
