.....and life keeps going

Hey everyone.

Well, I am trying to stay upbeat right now and having a hard time. And I said to myself, Self....(JK!) I wouldn't do that to you guys.

But I did take a step back and went back to my previous post here. And I thought that instead of running to my room and pulling the covers or my eyes again, I should snap out of it.

Life goes on. 

Just because something happened to me, does not mean that life stops moving forward. No one knows that I am devastated but me, and I can't take it out on others.

If you did read my last post, you will know that the news is not good. 

We were hoping for the call to give us the greatest news in the world. 4 years in the making. But, it was not the results we wanted.

I just thought I would share that with you guys. 
No nursery plans in my future.

But that's okay. We will try again next month, and who knows? Maybe I will have some news to tell you guys.

kitchen countertop - a spray paint affair

Hello again!

Back in December I posted about the mini kitchen redo I did. If you missed the post, you can check it out here.

As a reminder, here is the before and after:

Quite the difference! Here is a closeup of the countertop before and after:

Doesn't that before and after just make you want to squeal?
Cause I know I did!

before & after - fake plant

Hello again.

Today I have a before and after of a fake plant I received for Christmas a few years ago. I loved the flowers, not the pot it came in.

So what's a DIY-er to do?

chocolate snickerdoodles

Hey there people!
I am back today with another recipe for cookies! The hubby and I were having a sweet tooth craving tonight, so I popped on over to Pinterest and looked through the many (many) cookie recipes that I have pinned.
After some careful deliberation, we settled on Chocolate Snickerdoodles from The Farm Girl Recipes. I must say, it was a very good choice!

Life Goes On......

Well, hello there. 

Gosh, it's been forever. 

Sorry about my absence, but I had some personal things to deal with over the past month. Actually, it is an issue that I have been dealing with for over three years now, but it hit hard last month.  I found this, and it really helped pull me out of the emotional drowning I was experiencing.

I know I previously posted about telling you guys more about myself, and if there ever was a time for it, it's now.
